    Pour is simply an exceptional culinary find. The dishes are inventive, made with fresh ingredients and served petfectly. But the staff are what sets this restaurant apart. The servers are engaging, incredibly knowledgeable about the wine and the food offerings while oozing enthusiasm. Staff that love where they work usually feel that way for good reason!

    First visit. Everything was good but not great and because of that the price tag of $76 total for 2 small sized brunch entrees, cheese/meat board (4 items) and one beer flight wasn't a good value for us. We might try it again at dinner time, but not in a big hurry.

    Four of us dined at Pour prior to attending a performance at the Fulton Theatre. We were impressed by the ambience and the innovative menu. You can order a variety of small plates or combine them with a main dish. The beer and wine lists were excellent, as was our meal. The only negative was the dessert. We ordered in plenty of time, but it took a while to be served, and we felt rushed to arrive at the theatre on time. We ordered two desserts from the menu and both were disappointing. The chocolate cake was not particularly moist and the white chocolate cheesecake was extremely dense with not much flavor. So our initial excitement was somewhat tempered by the disappointing finale. I would return but would not order dessert.

    The intriguing menu at Pour takes awhile to read: many pages of food, wine, beer, cocktail options. We’re one-glass-of-wine-with-dinner folks so after selecting a nice Sauv Blanc we concentrated on food. We started with a lovely charcuterie board of cheeses and the pork terrine; my wife had the astoundingly good butternut squash soup; as entrees: the pork belly and homemade fettuccine, both nicely prepared. We declined the first table offered to us in the empty restaurant (near the crowded noisy bar) and asked to be seated in the front gallery which made for a much better (read: quieter) experience for us. Our waiter Bradley was a real pro and paced the meal perfectly. Sated, we opted to skip dessert. Total bill before tip: $74.36

    All dishes were prepared with attention to detail using less common ingredients which went together really well together. Specifically we enjoyed the 2-way rabbit with the black barley. The appetizer of scallop and calamari and black ink was something totally unexpected--> great. Great service and nice wine list. Very much enjoyed the hard cider on tap (tasted like French cidre).

Our server was incredibly helpful, very nice, and went out of her way to make sure our night went off without issue. We both cannot wait to come back!

    This was our first time at POUR and had fairly high expectations since we had heard good things about it. The service, atmosphere and entrees were excellent! The only thing we weren't too impressed with was the meat and cheese board. The bread seemed a bit stale the met and cheese seemed a bit over rated. The entrees were excellent but we thought it was priced a bit high for the amount you get. Great experience overall though.

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and they noted so on our reservation. After we ordered our first course and drinks the waitress brought out 2 flutes of champagne for us to toast my girlfriend's birthday. It was a very nice, low key way for the restaurant to help me make the night special for her. The service and food were great, we had a perfect evening.

    We celebrated a 64th birthday on a recent Sunday evening. Easy parking, nice entry, great atmosphere. We look for unusual upscale restaurants for special celebrations and this one did not disappoint. The service was excellent, the concept of the apps. was fun and there were interesting choices; the quail we shared was outstanding. We had Swordfish and Duck as main courses, both rival the Log Cabin. I have recommended Pour to several friends already. Be open to a different concept of cuisine and presentation. We loved it!

    The food is fabulous, the chef is truly talented. The terrible service however made the entire dining experience painful. The first course could have and should have been placed on the board and served in about 5 minutes.....not 50 minutes. To add insult to injury the first course arrived about 3 minutes before the main course. Not a good way to enjoy a nice dinner in a good restaurant. it was not a great restaurant experience.

    The menu and drink selections are always unique. If I see an item I tend to not enjoy at other restaurants (duck, fennel, etc.)I will usually try it at Pour. I am always surprised that I do enjoy it when prepared to perfection. Perhaps my favorite part of the experience is the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff. As a former server I judge on menu knowledge and often ask for recommendations. The servers never fail to point me in the right direction, and they provide wonderfully detailed descriptions. Pour is one of our favs.

    We had a great experience at Pour. I made a reservation for 6:15 and we were seated right away. It wasn't very crowded when we arrived but about a half hour into our meal the place was packed so I'm glad we had a reservation. There were a few minor mistakes that our server made but the food was terrific and the wait time for food was reasonable. I loved the artsy-vibe that the entire place (and neighborhood) had, I only wish the weather had cooperated and we could have sat outside.

    Pour has been in the city for a number of years now. As you can tell from my review, I am glad they are here. They always have great options for beer, wine, and cocktails. The menu isn't the largest in town and sometimes there are "corrections" for the menu. (They simply can run out of great menu options due to demand, so don't get completely fixated on a dish without first verifying that it is available.) However, I have never been disappointed by anything I have ordered. Portions will be small (Rather, they are probably normal as a human meal goes.) The charcuterie is amazing and I recommend starting there. If you need any help in making a choice, ask the knowledgeable wait and bar staff as they know their stuff!

    The food was interesting and the plates were small enough that you could try many options and still have room for your entree and dessert. If you choose to eat here, please leave yourself plenty of time. Our party of two only gave ourselves 1 hour and 45 minutes for dinner. We had to rush through our entree and get our server to settle the bill quickly because we had tickets to an evening show. It was truly ridiculous that an almost empty restaurant took over an hour and a half for a meat tray, two appetizers and two entrees. The food would have received higher marks if the potatoes were not overly salted.

    Food was great, however portions were very small. I had a scallop dish for $27 and there were only 3 scallops-I was still hungry. (We also had appetizers beforehand). I'd say overall the food is great, amazing flavors and very creative. Presentation is awesome. More fit for a "girlie" meal, I think any man would be starving after eating here.

    Going out to dinner on Thursday evening was a last minute decision. There was a lot going on and a very busy weekend ahead. POUR was perfect. This was our third time there and our best (and the others have been very good) experience yet. The wahoo fish was perfectly cooked. The mussels were also excellent. And the wine was half price. The staff was helpful and friendly each step of the way. Highly recommend.

    Pour just doesn't have it any more. We've been there several times since they've opened. We really enjoyed them in the beginning, the concept was great. We loved trying different cheeses and smoked meats with a variety of great wines. We had planned to staying for dinner but left after two appetizers. The expected small servings of cheese had even gotten smaller and the short list to choose from was even disappointing. The bread that accompanied it was extremely boring, I could have pulled this all together at the Giant. They also just expanded the indoor seating which was unlike the rest of the place, no ambiance, bland, bright lights too much air conditioning. Sadly, we don't need to go back.

    Pour was wonderful if you would like an appetizer and a glass of wine. If you want dinner too, it was pricy for what you get. The food was good was definitely not main stream and there was not a huge selection. The entrees were small and very expensive. The wine list was very nice.

    Excited about the special bottle rate with a "second" (entree is called) but selection of wine was unavailable. I ordered a cheese board with three types. It was way over priced for the extremely small pieces! We recommend Pour to people we met and will continue to do so but with the emphases on ordering glasses of wine and not ordering the cheese board.

    The service here was friendly but the food at dinnertime was not acceptable. Portions were extremely small even, to the point of forcing you to chose several courses just to feel satisfied. I ordered scallops. There were four small, over salted scallops served over an even saltier lamb, watermelon base. It was so salty I could not eat it. The atmosphere was loud and made it difficult to talk. We will not return for dinner only brunch.

    This was our second trip here. The first one left us just a little unsure about just how good the restaurant was (or wasn't). There was no confusion this time. Everything went extremely well from the friendly greeting to the engaging and knowledgable server to the first class food. We had a wonderful evening in every way. Pour works whether it is a group of friends or an evening out for two.

    We are locals who visit POUR every couple months-either sit at the bar, outside or attend a wine event. If you are looking for heapings of food-go elsewhere. If you are looking to have unique and delicious plates paired with your drinks to perfection, there is no better place. Easy parking-great downtown location.
