Diner Reviews
  • "just a nice little hole-in-the-wall, great food and service. Sorta anniversary date, very nice."

  • "Steak was flavorful, though it was warm-to-cool, rather than hot. Beef wellington was made to order, even though not offered that night. The clam chowder was thinner than most, but very flavorful. Overall, the ambience was lacking - very dark walls with mostly cheap furnishings and cheap fake plants, a central structural room divider that does not extend to the ceiling - tacky, and a huge fish tank with a beautiful jelly fish, but the many many cords coming off the side of the tank made the decoration more of an eyesore. Waitress was friendly, but not memorably great. We probably wouldn't go back, unless it were lunchtime and we were craving clam chowder. A bill of 70+tip was excessive for the warm-to-cool food and poor ambience."

  • "The food, service and location are top notch! I recommend bringing a flashlight though, it is so dark, and the font on the menu so small it is difficult read. We had to take turns going to the fish tank to try to read off of the light within it."

  • "This was our first time at Herbal Essence. The food was great, the service was good and the atmosphere was wonderful. We'll definitely be back."

  • "There was a group party going on and it was too noise to comfortably enjoy our meal. It was very disappointing because the food was very good and we couldn't enjoy it."

  • "Overall a good restaurant. I was very disappointed this evening however by my main meal. I ordered salmon and my wife ordered halibut. Both fish dishes were overcooked and not very enjoyable to eat. I hesitate to return to this restaurant in the future."

  • "I took my wife here to celebrate a special occasion and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. She had the rack of lamb and I went with the buffalo steak. Both were served with sauteed vegetables and mashed potatoes. Everything was cooked to order and I have no complaints about the food. For dessert I had the creme brulé and she had the triple chocolate cake. The creme brulé was served with sliced strawberries which was a welcome addition, the cake was good but not noteworthy. The only thing I didn't like was that the restaurant was so dim that I had trouble reading my menu."

  • "Quiet Saturday evening after a great Zag victory opener. We were out of town visitors, looking for a quiet, intimate setting. After visiting last year, it was time to stop again. Delicious, freshly prepared dinner and great wine! Thanks & Happy New Year"

  • "This is, by far, my favorite restaurant. I have never had a poor experience, whether it be the food or the wait staff. There is always something new and interesting on the menu. Everyone there is very friendly, including the owner, who will cook you a delicious meal and chat at your table. I have recommended this restaurant to some of my customers, and had them come back to thank me because they enjoyed it so much. You cannot go wrong with Herbal Essence."

  • "I walked away feeling like we paid too much. Then thinking about it, nothing seemed overpriced, so what was the problem? First, I don't think the waitress really had a good concept of the menu. The atmosphere itself wasn't up to "fancy" specifications, and for $100+ for a meal for two, a place better be fancy. I could have gone to Churchill's or Spencer's for a similar price (maybe $15-20 more). They just felt out of their league really...the food was very good though."
