    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.

    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Service- stellar. Food-out of this world. Small menu, but everything to choose from was amazing. The only thing that surprised me was I had the impression it was a bit more fancy, dark, candle lit....not so much. It is a bit brighter, there was reggae music playing and the ambiance wasn't as romantic as I expected (that's my own fault for expecting that). Otherwise the food was Wonderful and we cleared our plates (and the two bottles of wine we brought!! ) Loved it- will be back.

    I went here for my 30th bday dinner with my bf and 12 friends. The food was so good! We went with the $35 prix fixe menu option and tried everything. I'm a pescetarian so I only had the calamari and mushroom ravioli but they were very delicious. Well-seasoned and the sauce was SO good! My bf had the steak and he said it was cooked perfectly as well as their chicken and duck, which our friends had. Everyone raved about the food and that I had made a good choice. The service was exceptional. Everyone there was very nice and accommodating. Even though we were the last group remaining there, they did not rush us at all. I highly recommend this BYOB. for amazing food & great service. FYI: The noise level was loud so not very intimate/romantic.

    This is in my neighborhood so I was hoping for the best and I was not disappointed. I had the wedge ap which is iceberg lettuce and gorgonzola dressing. I love this retro concept but it can be done poorly. This one was excellent. The lettuce was delicate and crisp and the dressing was subtle too. And the crispy bits,on top whatever they were, were delicious. The duck was also fantastic. Really tender and perfectly cooked. I plan to go back and order it again. Also they offer a $35 prixe fix which I didn't get but seems unbelievable cheap for what you get. Hopefully this won't get so crowded that I can't get in!

    The food was delicious as always. The pre fixe option was nice. Medium rare steak was done perfectly, and the fried Oreos were great. It's a smaller place, so I'd recommend making a reservation a few days in advance if you want to go on a Friday or Saturday night. Only one we could get for 4 people day of on a Saturday was at 5:30.
