    Went to Part & Labor on a girls night out and was extremely disappointed. Like Woodbury Kithchen and Shoofly, Parts & Labor takes it's self way too seriously. Only go here if you are a fan of hipsters who are more concerned about image then providing good service. The menu is incredibly limited, and understandably, meat heavy. Food was mediocre at best. The thing I dislike the most is the air of superiority. While the idea of sourcing all your food locally is one I embrace it's quite annoying to not be able to get citrus or olives in your drink. However, most (probably all) of the wine comes from elsewhere. Portions were small and came with no sides. All of the sides tasted the same. It was very expensive and not in a great part of town.

    Amazing steaks, a top-five burger, but I always order off the Varieties menu. Our table's winning dish was pork skirt and tendon, which came over nice lettuce and radishes with a spicy dressing. German potato salad and pork belly were also marvelous. Parts & Labor really has to get their service down though - continued visits to fill our water glasses didn't make up for a loong wait for a table (we had a reservation) and then when we finally asked for a time estimate, turned out our table was ready and waiting for us.

    The beef was worth the calories and cholesterol. Absolutely memorable flavor, like the old days of aged, grass-fed beef cattle. Sides were also delicious and good accompaniments. Our waiter paid attention to our allergy needs, but wasn't very attentive to the general table needs. The major problem was the 45 minute wait for our table and the length of time it took for the entire meal, 2 hrs after the wait. We will definitely return, but will come early and not have a need to be out at a certain time.

    There was a lively crowd and we were offered the option of a slight wait for one of the small tables around the periphery of the restaurant or immediate seating at one of the high communal high tables in the center. We chose to avoid the high wooden stools at the communual tables which are better suited to yoga enthusiasts. The service was polite and informative without being overly directive or effusive I wish we had been more adventurous with our menu choices. We played it a little too safe but the food was excellent, the meat beautifully cooked. The only disappointment was a dish of radishes with butter. Why is good butter available in grocery stores but not restaurants? P&L should find some butter with flavour or pass the salt.

    What a great job Spike and Amy Gjerde did with Parts and Labor! Wood and metal everywhere - the decor calls to mind the history of the Tire Shop. Home cured meats were the best we've ever had. Wonderful cheese selections, and the very best braised greens we've ever tasted. No room for dessert the two times we' ve had dinner here. All wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They seem to know the menu and what to recommend. An added bous is the attached retail shop where you can buy house made sausages, cured meats, cheeses, jams and pickles.

    Most of the food, from the starters to the main dish are well prepared in general. Some of the meat dishes are overcooked and the portions are on the small side/or over priced. Some of the meats are very well done, while others are overcooked and tough. The menu selections limited.

    After having eaten at P & L twice before, we were looking forward to another delicious meal. We had a group of 8 and everyone in our party was new to the restaurant except us. We sat down 20 minutes after our reservation time of 8:45 due to a party of 2 sitting at the long farm table that would seat our 8. Once seated we were invisible. By the time the waitress appeared, we were starving and pretty ready to order but she only managed to get the drinks and didn't mention that most of the items and specials on the menu were sold out. Another 15 minutes went by and she finally took our order. Not much left to chose from. We oredered and everything came quickly but undercooked and a salad forgotten. We were embarrassed. A Rare miss.

    We made our reservation two weeks in advance, yet still waited nearly 30 minutes to be seated. It took our waiter another 10 minutes to acknowledge us. The food -once we finally got it- was good, not great. The seating was uncomfortable. Will not likely go again. Was disappointed after all we had heard/read about it.

    Rustic atmosphere. On site free parking, which is a plus in the city. The food is shared family style. Our party of four shared the 32 ounce ribeye. It was fantastic and perfectly cooked to order. We also shared a few cured meats as a starter and a few sides with the meal. Hominy was delicious and roasted potatoes were very good. Can't wait to go back to try the ham hock.

    The place was fun -it is a little too noisy for dinner-more appropriate for a bar setting. Considering the prices, I think the focus should be more on the dining than the fun, but I did enjoy it. The wait staff was very good. I had a reservation for a long time but we had to wait for a while. You did comp an app, which was thoughtful but you end up spending more money when you wait longer. I wrote do not recall on the noise rating because none of the descriptions were appropriate-it wasn't energetic-it was loud.

    This was our third time dining here and we were not disappointed. We shared a number of dishes amongst the 4 of our which was the way to go: two sausages, the dirty rice, lamb and ribeye steak. All extremely dishes. We also ordered a number of side vegetable dishes: hominy, roasted tomatoes, sauteed greens, and charred cabbage. This is not a place for vegetarians obviously, and a few more simple green salads would be welcome, but we will definitely be back.

    A great find: unusual cuts of meat are well seasoned and carefully cooked. Since the meat is rich, we appreciated that the portions were not too big, and accompanied by refreshing vegetables and pickles The hen confit, seasoned with ham, was outstanding. Service avoided the usual "My name is..........; how are we today?" cliches, and was informed and caring. It was too noisy for our liking, but I will be back!

    DISAPPPOINTING in all aspects. Tables have uncomfortable small stools with no backs. Everything that requires heat is done in a woodburning store, fine for a pizza palor, but not a restuarant. We entered at 7:05 on a Monday night and waited until 8:26 for our salads. They do tell you that entrees might come out at different times because of the wood burning ovens and that is true. Our entrees came ot over a 15minute period. We visited on a Monday night (considered slow in the resturant business) and it was nowhere full, but our total meal took over 2 hours on a piece by piece basis. I can only imagine what it like on a Friday/Saturday night. Would we go back - NO; Woujld we recommend- NO

    If you love meat, this is your place. I decided to be adventurous and try the Plate Steak, something I have never tried before and a cut of meat you will not find anywhere else in town. I am glad I did. A fabulous tender cut of meat and amazingly priced at $18. Try the appetizer plate full of all different meats and its big enough to share with the table. My wife is vegetarian and the staff was nice enough to create a plate full of the locally sourced grilled vegetables. She absolutely loved it!!! If you are into locally brewed handcrafted beer, this is also your place. There are many on tap to chose from. The only miss I could find is the wine list. There are only 2 reds and 2 whites by the glass to chose from. Where was the Black Ankle??

The server was kind and knowledgeable, making solid recommendations and ensuring everything was a hit. The atmosphere was interesting and enjoyable. We went for a special occasion, but would visit again just for a night out. I LOVE that it opened in my neighborhood and am super thrilled to see really quality places popping up in Remington. I can not say enough great things about this spot. Go there immediately.

    The energy level for a Sunday evening was just right, busy but not jammed. Long tables with bar stools are in the center, with tables and booths around the periphery, a seating scheme that should add flexibility in accommodating more patrons when things are hopping. The other half of the business is a high-end butcher shop, strongly hinting that specialty meat dishes will be the strength -- which is so. The menu offers good descriptions, but as non-foodies we wanted some guidance as far as putting together appetizers & entrees & sides, which our server provided, graciously. Our bill for two including these, plus a pitcher of house wine, a cordial, taxes, and tip: $145. Hey, it was our anniversary, not pinching pennies. Recommended.

    Everything that we ate was outstanding. We took our waitresses advice and shared everything. For meats we chose spareribs and flank steak, which came with a wonderful green sauce. The vegetables were potatoes, roasted sweet peppers and cole slaw. I am not normally a fan of cole slaw, but this was tangy and sweet.

    Excellent food, very good service, & a nice selection of craft beers & cocktails in a unique setting (i.e., a former automotive repair & tire shop)! Unfortunately, on the day that we were there, they were not serving one of their signature dishes that I had heard so much about, i.e., the dirty rice. However, the blood sausage was a good substitute. The only problem that I noticed was the same one that many other people have mentioned in their reviews: the noise! My wife & I were there early on a weeknight, but the music was BLASTING so loudly that I was on the verge of putting in my earplugs! I can imagine that it would be almost deafening on a busy Fri. or Sat. with everyone trying to shout over everyone else & the loud music!!
