    I went to 709 recently for dinner with my wife. Service was ok. Wasn't a busy night. We ordered soup with our entrees. Our entrees arrived without ever getting our soup. I told the server we never got our soup. He was like a deer in headlights. Didn't know what to do. He asked if we wanted our soup with our entrees. We decided to cancel the soup. I had twin lobster tails. One tail was over cooked. Not sure how you over cook 1 tail and not the other. Overall I wasn't happy with the service and the meal. I won't be going back.

    Started out as hot new place then dropped off in quality and service. It appears as if they are working to get better as wait staff was very attentive and food was good. We ate early before it got crowded so not sure how they fare when busy. A definite improvement over last visit.

    Waiter brought my wife's wine glass about 1/2 full the first time and 2nd glass included the carafe. My first beer had bottle only and 2nd beer came with chilled glass. Food was OK but nothing special and price was quite high. Nice bar crowd...nice location. Overall, I would not hurry back.

  • Overall very good - entrees
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/7/2013
    Overall very good - entrees were superb, appetizer (goat cheese) was mediocre, dessert was bland (molten chocolate cake). Service was acceptable but not pleasant. We truly enjoyed our entrees (asian shrimp and crab cakes) and would likely get take-out meals next time vs. sitting in an uncomfortable setting with lackluster service. The meals also took an exceptionally long time to be served... Not sure what was going on in the kitchen since we were one of four tables in the restaurants!

    I don't see what the big deal about this place is. Food was nothing mind blowing. Service was ok and it was pretty expensive for food that was maybe a 6 out of 10. There are better places to have a night out in the area.

    Service staff consistently been very good - they are friendly, very approachable yet professional and efficient. They have managed to strike a nice balance here with the staff.The restaurant itself is interesting as it has really beautiful modern water features. Not really and romantic venue as it is quite noisy. The food : I want to say its great but in truth it is mixed. For example I have had over cooked, dry salmon but I have also had a really delicious coconut curry sauce. I have had melt in your mouth steak with dripping in fat black rice. Desserts are always good. Wine list is good but mixed drinks weak - dont bother. I still feel comfortable recommending 709 as overall it is an enjoyable evening - especially for groups.

    I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. Food was very good, service was great, atmosphere also great. Can't wait to go in the summer when you can sit upstairs at their outside tables overlooking the street.

    Food was good and service was very good but we arrived at 4:00 for a special dinner and they refused us a dinner menu. We were forced to have lunch. We had tickets for an event that evening so we didn't have time to eat else where.

    Our waitress Ashley was outstanding. She knew the menu & specials and was able to make recommendations. She was energetic and positive and added to the fun in the atmosphere. When the computers went down and the things began to move slowly she brought us the pretzels dippers to make up the the slightly slower service. The only negative, they brought my husband appetizer and soup at the same time, but they were delicious.The entrees were great, my husband had the steak, and as a butcher he knows steak, it was perfect! I ordered sushi and it was fresh, delicious, and awesome! We've had lunch in the past and also Ashley was our server! We loved it for lunch as well. We cannot wait to go back...and it is a 50 mile drive for us.

    When we walked in, the hostess was busy looking ar the reservation book and seemed absolutely ticked off that she had to stop what she was doing to get us seated. She didn't greet us, she just glared. Although we made a reservation, we were seated in the worst seat, in a corner at a table so small, the menu was bigger than the table. We asked to be moved and without hesitation were told no. Should have left then, but the waiter seemed ok, and maybe we could salvage the experience. Almost, but not quite. The dinner itself (crab cakes and filet mignon) were fair, the carrot cake was good, but the molten lava cake was cold and rubbery, barely edible. Overall the experience was not at all what was expected, and definitely not worth the price

    709 ran out of their signature pretzel bites at by 7:15 PM. Waitress forgot to read specials for the evening. Very noisy accoustic level even in the rear dining area. Food was very good and fresh.
