    Worst food I’ve had in a restaurant in years. The bread was ice cold in the middle when given to us. Obviously been frozen or reheated, with the crust as hard as rocks. I ordered a Parisian burger, I went to cut the bread and it was so rock solid it flew my French fries off the table onto the floor. The burger had no taste other than CHAR. My boyfriend ordered the mussels and chorizo pasta. Sauce is water with a taste of red sauce. Mussels were way over cooked with the shells falling apart into the pasta…. The drinks were good. We did not eat our food , paid and left. I am never one to write reviews whether good or bad, but this was horrible. We won’t even label it as “going out to dinner”, rather we just jokingly we had our drinks and that was it. The drinks were good, the service was okay with a little overbearing but that didn’t bother me much. Never returning sadly.

    The server didn’t know what items the kitchen had and every time we ordered a dish he would come back 15-20mins later and say we are out of the food. Both scallops and green peppers for our table. The food took longer than expected specially with our entrees. Poor service.

    I have eaten here multiple times with very good dinners served, so we were very happy to take our friends. But not last night. Two of us ordered the hangar steak. Our potatoes came out so cold on both our plates, we had to ask for new potatoes that were hot. And then I started eating my steak which I ordered medium rare, and it was well done. I didn’t want to seem like I was complaining again, so I kept eating and then realized my friend had my dinner and he had eaten some already also. I did tell the waitress about the switched steaks, and all we got was “sorry”. This was an extremely disappointing outing and I am very Leary to try again.

    I took my mom for Mother’s Day. We had a terrific table in the back and was still able to hear the live music. We had a very efficient, friendly waiter and loved the food. My mom loved it as did I. Very enjoyable. Thanks

    Had a great experience - atmosphere is pleasant and the food is excellent. We ate here before a concert and we let our server know that we were on a timeline; they were very accommodating and we were able to get dessert too. There are a variety of options on the menu and the cost is reasonable.

    We had a great dinner at Prospect. The food and service was excellent. Everyone seemed so happy to be out and enjoying their dining experience! My boyfriend loves their espresso martinis. Our salmon was prepared just right and their shrimp cocktail is delicious. I also hosted my daughter’s bridal shower here a few weeks ago and it was PERFECT! Tim and his team created a welcoming environment with stellar service and a yummy buffet luncheon. All guests said it was the best shower they ever attended!! And Tim makes the best ever celebration cake decorated with real flowers - we were blown away!! I can’t say enough positive things about this place! Thank-you.

    Valentines dinner for my wife and I. We’ve eaten here once or twice before. Staff is second to none, always go above and beyond. Thoroughly enjoyed the chicken and sun dried tomatoes in a cream sauce and pasta special, kinda wish it was on the regular menu. Live music is back, we’ll truth is it’s been back just haven’t had the chance to take advantage in the last few months. We’ll be back.

    The decor is an eclectic mix of odd things. The food was not good for the price. I was shocked when we got the cheese plate as it looked like slices of Cracker Barrel cheeses and we received ritz crackers. Very underwhelmed. The dessert was frozen and had zero flavor. The main course was decent and the service was fine. Just needs a real overhaul.

    I was impressed with the 16 Prospect Wine Bar and Bistro. They had good food and a caring staff. When my date failed to show, they offered me a free glass of wine. I truly appreciate their kindness and caring nature. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who asks.
