Diner Reviews
  • "This is a good neighborhood restaurant. Very good location. Very good service. Very good menu concept and structure (2 different prix fixe options plus regular menu with enough variety). However, the food is shy of great in comparison to other local restaurants with a similar vibe and target clientele. The fried Oreo dessert however is a deliciously odd guilty pleasure that I'm sure was prepared way better than what you'd find at a carnival. Overall a very good experience worth trying again to monitor and compare over time (both the restaurant and the fried Oreos)."

  • "We stopped in on a Sunday in July. Our waitress was great and attentive (there was also a 20 person birthday celebration). I asked for her reccomendation and she was on point. I had the scallop dish with corn hash and a raspberry coulis. My tastebuds were singing! My companion had the strip steak and it was also prepared well. I indulged in the fried oreos even though I was more than full from my entree. We did the Prix Fixe which was a pretty good deal ($40 or $50). The appetizer figs were a lovely choice for a starter. I would definitely eat here again."

  • "Went for dinner Saturday night. We had high expectations as has heard quite a bit of positive. Entrée lives up to all expectations and then some. We chose a prix fixe and had totally different selections and each one was incredible. Sat on the sidewalk, they have three tables. Service was fantastic, a relative of the owner. Met the owner / chef as we were leaving. He is so talented. Cant wait to go back. Only note - inside did seem loud but there was a large group - bachelorette party. I hope everyone supports this wonderful restaurant on South Street west."

  • "Great food, but wait staff could be more attentive and the music selection the night we dined would appeal to a very small portion diners."

  • "Dinner was delicious. Service was perfect. This was our second visit. I don't usually order pasta but I couldn't resist the porcini ravioli, so delicious. Second time I ordered the wedge salad appetizer. I made my husband order his own because it's so good I wouldn't share."

  • "The exterior and menu say bistro fare, but the chef's skill and creativity raise the food to a whole other level. From the home-baked bread we dipped in oil infused with something sweetly subtle, we moved on to the best fried calamari I have ever had, then to seared duck breast on asparagus, in a light sauce with dried cherries and mushrooms, not a combo you expect but it worked beautifully, and Divers sea scallops--who gives 5 huge scallops anymore? -- perfectly cooked, soft as butter, on a bed of corn and sweet red peppers. Then dessert pulled out all the stops. Deep fried oreos with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce had me wanting to lick the plate. Limoncello cake was light and tart. This was a $40 prix fixe BYOB deal. Incredible."

  • "Highly recommend for weeknight dinner. Calamari was phenomenal, scallops sweet and done to perfection. The halibut was also great. Dessert limoncello cake was the perfect ending to a perfect dinning experience. Wait staff pleasant and personable, chef came out to speak with customers, all in all, a great last minute find....will definitely come back."

  • "The staff and the menu were great. The food was bland except for the red sauce accompanying the tuna steak with mussels and clams. Spicy and delicious. It was certainly pricey, but we enjoyed ourselves."

  • "Started with appetizer special prosciutto wrapped figs then Surf and turf. A Lobster tail and ny strip cook perfectly. Also prosciutto wrapped fig special was pure deliciousness. We forgot our wine and were alittle bummed until our server Jenna brought us over two glasses of blood orange sangria. She said they make it just in case of emergency. Lol. Thanks Jenna"

  • "Welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. My daughter and husband both thought the duck was amazing. My husband particularly liked the calamari appetizer, but the mussels were too large. We'd definitely recommend Entree, but for a BYOB, it was still expensive. Even with our paid parking voucher in the windshield, we got a ticket. "

  • "Came across Entrée looking for a Mother's Day reservation on Open Table. Although the menu was small, there wasn't a dish on it that didn't speak to me. I made everyone at the table order something different and it was all fantastic. Started with a great arugula salad with peaches, plums, grapefruit and balsamic--the combo was outrageously good. Absolute raves for the seared tuna--fabulous rub, seared to perfection, a huge portion. The halibut and the duck breast were also standouts. Dessert was incredibly light lemon mascarpone cake, a chocolate nutella canolli and fried oreos for the kids--a must try!!! We sat in the open window and had great service. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "Second time at Entree. Both times, the same experience. Really great food but the place is so super noisy on a Saturday night. Not sure what they can do to temper the pounding voices, but that would be a major improvement. The food is terrific but I am not sure I will return on a weekend evening."

  • "They unfortunatelty had 2 privat groups with 8 & 10 and one of them was so extremely loud that we were thinking of leaving. Once they got this fabulous food they calmed down and we were glad we stayed. "

  • "I took my family out over the weekend for Mother's Day dinner and everyone really enjoyed Entree BYOB. We didn't make it too easy on them, I had changed the number of people on the reservation the day before and our party ended up showing up late anyway. The staff was very nice and friendly, and we received no ill will from them, which was just great. The food was also very good, I got the Calamari and the Rib Eye. Neither of the dishes I ordered were the best I've ever tasted, but they were close. Despite the generous portion sizes, everyone at our table cleaned their plates. The place was packed when we were there, and there was a party of 20 in a restaurant that seats 35 people total- made it a bit loud and cramped, not that bad though."

  • "When we came here a few months ago for the first time I thought is was a great find, an excellent new BYOB. On Thursday when we dined here it wasn't as good. Still good, but it didn't live up to the expectations from our first visit. "

  • "I picked Entree BYOB last minute for a group of five bc it was in my neighborhood and it was a BYO. The food was incredible. Most of us chose one of the three course prix fixe options and the portions were very generous. Everything was excellent but you must try the mussels and clams."

  • "So happy we stumbled upon this place!! Service was perfect, well paced with perfect timing. Food has to be some of the best that we have had in the city. Wedge salad was anything but usual. Delicious!! Dinners we had tuna with clams and mussels... Huge portion and amazing. My husband had a huge piece of halibut. He said it was spicy and he loved it. But dessert... Omg!!!! Fried Oreos with salted caramel ice cream. The chef came out to chat and I ate most of it!! You chat, husband, you lose!! Chef was young, personable, and seemed like a nice guy! This is a place that needs to make it! It is wonderful!!opened since September, they say business is always improving!! It should. It was incredible!!!!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "My husband loved the wedge salad, while I thought it strayed too far from the classic recipe and missed the piles of blue cheese that usually accompany this salad. The cornish game hen was DELICIOUS. We'd go back just for that. The balsamic reduction that is served with the bread basket is also wonderful. And yes, we went whole hog and had the deep fried oreos. Scrumptious."

  • "Entree offers some great options off-menu vegetarians. We mentioned we were vegetarians and the chef came out to personally give us some options and ensure that we felt welcome. I can't believe this place wasn't packed. The food and service were amazing!"

  • "My wife and I really enjoyed this neighborhood spot. Everything about it is great. The muscles and clams appetizer was phenomenal. My wife said the scallops were so delicious she couldn't share. Calamari was a little over prepared. Ambience was excellent. I think if they added 1 server or a table attendant the service would be 5 star."

  • "First time here. Went on a Wednesday night..not too crowded. BYOB..Can opt for fixed, 3 courses, $40 or a la carte. High quality, thoughtful presentation. Wedge salad, which as plain as it might seem, is very good. Both the tuna with clams and mussels, and the duck, with asparagas were excellent. Dessert of Lemoncello cake and fried oreos were quite tasty as well. Only complaint, and it has been mentioned before is that the menu could be a little bigger, or perhaps have 2 specials off menu. It is not much of a complaint and I would return."

  • "We ate at Entree last week and really enjoyed our meal. Everything was very fresh and prepared perfectly. My husband's duck breast came out a little overcooked, and the chef immediately cooked him another one which was perfect for him. There were also 2 fish entrees ordered and both were delicious. The menu is small but varied, but it would be nice if they had some specials to offer. The prices are very fair and we especially like that it is a byob. The restaurant was a little dark. I think they should keep the lights brighter to liven things up a bit."

  • "We had no idea about the pre fix menu on Sunday evenings. But it was great! We shared the meat and vegetable offerings and every plate that arrived was a surprise and a delight. Excellent all around. We will definitely return."

  • "The service here is friendly and keen to please, even if the food is of average execution. The portions are very generous but the kitchen needs to kick things up a notch if they are to compete with nearby Rex, Pumpkin and Sawatee restaurants, all of which have excellent cooking. most of the diners appeared to be young and on budgets, which is why the $35 prix fixe was a huge hit with most of the diners seated near me. On net, a pleasant night out, but not a venue for foodies."

  • "This was a great fine. Outstanding food from start to finish. We ate early during the middle of the week so it was not that crowded. I would definitely return to try other items on the menu."

  • "The food was interesting, and a good value in terms of quality and portion control. The service was excellent, not only by the server, but the chef visited several times, and answered questions. The intimacy of the restaurant added to its charm, and there was ample opportunity to chat without difficulty, refreshing now adays. This is my third visit, and I intend to go back and recommend it to others."

  • "What a lovely surprise it was for us and our neighbors to find this new neighborhood gem. We loved that it is a BYOB first of all and then we found the food to be fabulous- very well prepared and delicious with much attention paid to every detail. It is a small, warm, cozy spot. Highly recommend it!"

  • "I had never heard of this place when I stumbled on some online reviews, which were almost universally positive. The menu is fairly small and set up so that you can do either prix fixe or a la carte. The food was very good -- especially loved the wedge salad (something I would never order ordinarily, but everyone raved about it), and both of our entrees (halibut and the chicken) were very tasty. BYO keeps the price down. Some of the dishes we saw being brought out to other diners looked and smelled delicious. I would definitely go back."
