    Dined on 7/22/2013
    Our server-in-training made several small mistakes, but other more experienced staff helped out and we found the overall service level to be quite good. Four of us agreed the best entree was the chicken and we found the fried cheese curds to be sinful. Our only complaint had to do with the bottle of French red wine we ordered. By no means am I a wine snob, but our bottle was served at too warm a temperature! The tepid wine definitely detracted from an otherwise enjoyable experience.

    I have had three great meals at 'TOWN'. Everyone at my table enjoyed their meals. The food is creative an delicious. The service staff is attentive and quick. I had plenty of time to enjoy the salad, entre and desert and still make it up-valley to the ballet on time. I booked my reservation on "Open Table" and got my request for outdoor dining. I'm very impressed with TOWN and Open Table.

    don't skip the carbs on the first course--get the bread box selections with the creamy butter and use the bread (if there is any left by then) to soak up the juices at the bottom of your bowl.

    We had a lot of miscommunications with the wait staff (She didn't get it that some of us were drinking cocktails instead of wine and didn't take one of the children's order for dessert). Even though we had called and requested the patio the day before, they didn't take that into account when planning the seating that day. My meal was was ok, but nothing I'd order again. I'd skip Town and go to the Pullman where the service is more attentive and the food is consistently delicious.

    I started with the watermelon cocktail. Could not taste the sweetness of the melon a bit heavy on the alcohol side. Had the cold pea mint soup and house salad. Both were very flesh and very good. We shared a jar dip roasted tomato and artichoke with two pieces of crostini bread. Not enough bread for the dip. We asked for more and kindly said yes but never arrived. My husband had the crispy chicken the was very good and flavorful. I give this place a very good but not excellent. We ended with the bread pudding that was very poor, no flavor and only tasted the sour dough bread. Would not recommend maybe give something else a try.

    Town is wonderful for the food. Certainly one of the most creative restaurants around. AND it is hugely popular which is why the service was slow. We went on a Tuesday night. The patio was completely full and the inside dining room nearly full. Neither the bartender nor the kitchen could keep up. Otherwise, it was perfect

    We had a diverse group of four. We were looking for a nice evening out. It started at The Town restaurant. The menu had a variety of food options, the drink list was fun, the wait staff very professional, informative and nice. We sat really close to the other guest but they did not seem bothered by our laughs and loud voices. In fact they said good bye to us when they left. It was a really wonderful evening. Good company, good food, good customer service!

    We have eaten at Town twice, both times the food was good but not great. My dinner the last time was poor, the chicken was fatty and the crisp potato bed was soggy from the chicken and was an unattractive inedible mush. Both times the service was horrible with inexperienced and inattentive staff; one of the owners couldn't even answer basic questions such as where the lamb was from and getting us an answer seemed beneath her. The Town appears to believe its own hype as a foodie restaurant with its self appointed 'celebrity' chef but without having the ability to deliver. We would not recommend.

    The service was very good. The menu was so interesting that we have vowed to go back and try everything they have. The food was prepared perfectly and was amazing. The ingredients were very good. I asked my waiter to select a wine pairing for my dinner and it was spot on. Town has a terrific patio. We had one downside of some bright sun right in our eyes and no way to fix it. No shades. No umbrellas. Nothing. But they are new and I will forgive them a lot. They have only been open six weeks. I look forward to the next six years.

    Town is an excellent addition to the food scene in Carbondale. The loss of Six89 was a big blow but Town is a very good replacement. The noise level is a bit high, but the casual atmosphere is terrific. The menu is quite inventive and everything we've had so far is of a very high quality. There were a few service glitches early on, but these have mostly been corrected. We'll continue to enjoy this new restaurant and to bring our friends as well.

    Tried this restaurant several times and really like it. The people there are still working out the kinks as its a brand new spot in Carbondale. Had the steak last night. Great quality meat, cooked to perfection and the kale and potato garnish was delicious. Would had gotten five starts, if there hadn't been too much salt on the potatoes.

    I took my wife to Town for her birthday dinner, and they put us inside at a table where we sat opposite each other at a table for two. The noise was so loud we had to request a table outside so we could have a conversation. This has been a problem for the two previous restaurants at this location which unfortunately has not yet been solved. While the food was very well prepared and flavorful (My wife had the hanger steak and I had the striped bass), having to pay $4 extra for a basket of somewhat dry bread was offensive. I was looking forward to eating at Town (this was our first time at the restaurant) because of the great experiences we have had at the owner's other restaurants, but this time we were disappointed.

    We love Mark's restaurants so were very excited to try Town. with friends. While we enjoyed the evening, we were a bit disappointed in the food and service. For openers the halibut ceviche jar was a hit but the cheese curds were heavy/greasy/tasteless and the soup just OK. The halibut main course was outstanding, the steak came in a close second, the crispy chicken was OK but the enchiladas were a huge disappointment. While they were advertised as butternut squash enchiladas, there were only 3 small cubes of squash and the rest tortilla. We ordered 3 desserts between the 8 people and not one was memorable. We were not wow'd by our first visit we all agreed it is worth a second try.

    Town. is a great combination of sophisticated, casual, fresh, energetic, imaginative, local: A perfect fit for the new Carbondale and mid-Roaring Fork Valley food scene. More than that, Town. makes a genuine effort to fit the casual down home rural traditions and feel of the community but with an upscale twist that's could compete in any major foodie city. Diners from all over the area have been flocking to Town. for dinner, so be patient with the kitchen. Opening phase bumps seem to have smoothed, but occasionally slow getting dishes out at peak times. Check the craft beers and simple but well thought out wine list. Breakfast and lunch, ordered and paid for at the counter, are super-casual, tasty terrific and well priced.

    Transplanter
    Dined on 5/31/2013
    Was hoping for a much more professional restaurant with higher quality food. Based on the owners other ventures I had high hopes for this restaurant and was very disappointed. The service is par for the course in the Roaring Fork Valley, leaves much to be desired. Menu although varied has no cohesive thread. Flavors non existent. Staff not trained. Noise level is deafening, tables are way too close together, the food was 'shopped' when delivered, unacceptable. Town will not be visited again until their growing pains are in the past and only then perhaps for just drinks and appetizers. Very disappointed in the entire experience. Prices on par for valley residents but I was hoping for a Pullman experience and it did not deliver.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    We were big fans of 689, the previous restaurant of this chef and owner. However, Towne is not up to that standard. The menu was uninteresting although I liked my butternut squash ravioli and the interesting sauce, my friend went another night and ordered it and said it was bland and uninteresting. So, that means to me that the restaurant is inconsistent. Also, it is very noisy and hard to talk. They need to do something, maybe tablecloths, or wall hangings to bring down the noise.

    Unfortunately we are looking for a romantic restaurant experience, and this is not it. While the food is excellent as was to be expected, the atmosphere is that of a local bar, clean and hip, spare and casual. And noisy. The menu was a little small, especially for large plates. The wine list was adequate. Pork Belly with Polenta. Occasionally I get a bite of something that makes me close my eyes because the experience is blowing my mind, that's this polenta! Get it as a side dish and forget the pork belly. Pastrami Lamb with housemade sauerkraut. This kind of thing is the strong suit of Mark Fisher restaurants, and doesn't disappoint. Butternut squash enchiladas. The tomatillo sauce is strong and stomps all over the squash.

    I was so excited to eat at town* and it lived up to Mark Fisher's reputation. In season ingredients, prepared perfectly, not too over seasoned or fancy, which allowed for the simple tastes of the sunchokces and artichokes to express their flavors. The small plates were rather large and I would recommend only ordering one if you start with Fiona's delicious bread and end with one of the tasty desserts! The server was great as she didn't rush us, even when we took ample time making up our minds. I can't wait to go back!

    Dined on 5/17/2013
    Town was on our list to try because we had enjoyed Mark's other restaurant, Six89. It's not Six89...which we knew ahead of time. However, the loud atmosphere carried over from Ella (previous dweller). We were seated in an active thoroughfare, kind of crammed up against the bar wall. It probably would have been good to ask for another seat, outside. The waitress was attentive, but rushed. We didn't have bread until twenty-five minutes into our meal. Note- you have to BUY the bread. It's very good and comes from the restaurant's shared space-Fiona of Grana so it's worth the cost- just should have been offered sooner. The food was delicious, however the mussel app. left much to be desired. It's early- we may try again.
