22 Square Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was very good but the shrimp & grits a couple people ordered was mostly grits (5 shrimp) and there were just 5-6 gnocchi in that entree a person ordered... for an entree & price they weren’t sufficient. By comparison the pork and filet plates were huge and delicious. Very noisy though and atmosphere too casual (hotel lobby) for the type of food and price... our party of 7 tab was just under $400.
Went in the middle of restaurant week, and everything included the service was excellent! We were surprised that the portions were huge, in fact we took some home! We had a total of six different items, and they were all delicious. My husband loved the Quinoa salad, and the shrimp and grits were cooked perfectly, with a fluffy texture that was a pleasant surprise. Also, I had a Pink Lady, which was reasonably priced for a cocktail, and it was one of my favorite cocktails ever. I would definitely go back here again!
We had a group of 8 and the restaurant had another 12 or so people in. It took 30 min to order our food and an other hour in addition to get our food. 45 minutes after we ordered, we were told they had no burgers so it was obvious they hadn’t started cooking yet. The restaurant was not busy. It was not a good experience.
I was underwhelmed by 22 Square Restaurant. There were very few food options (maybe 5 entrees), and while the steak I had was good, I was expecting more. That's probably my fault for not looking over the menu before making the reservation. The ambiance was ok, but when the restaurant area isn't open, don't plan to go for food. We sat at a high top table in very small uncomfortable chairs. This place would be better for after dinner (or before) drinks.
This restaurant was so elegant and classy, yet vibrant and fun at the same time! They had THE BEST music (old school hip hop) but in a classy way... does that make sense? It was like soft background music in a classy setting but not stuffy or snooty at all. And the food was miraculous. Everything we ate and drank was great! Highly recommend it for a romantic night out or a fun dinner out with friends.
First, the good:
The Maximilian Affair cocktail was terrific. Kudos to the bartender! Also, their honey white bread was warm and tasty
Now, the not so good:
-Ordered the Brussels Sprouts, but I was told that they didn’t have the roasted apples that came with it (this should’ve been a sign of the rest of dinner). We ordered it anyway and wasn’t all that bad.
-The Pimento Deviled Eggs were too rich and heavy for my taste. Was a chore to eat them.
-Ordered the Braised Short Ribs. Server came back and told me they wouldn’t be ready for two hours (at 6:45pm). I was slightly disappointed.
-I then tried to order the Shrimp and Grits. Server told me they didn’t have any available (“they were 86’d” were her words) Extremely disappointed at this point.
-Decided to go with one of the specials of the night, Spinach and Artichoke Risotto. The dish was extremely bland and underwhelming. Seemed like they either forgot to season or it was drastically under-seasoned. Also, I’m not sure if they used arborio rice. It seemed like a standard long grain rice. It was sent back.
-My other guest had the blackened grouper with potatos. Not horrible, but, again, under seasoned. We ended up sharing that.
I will say, my server and the restaurant director were very apologetic and tried to make up for the experience. They comped the majority of what was ordered. I appreciate that they took it upon themselves to do that. I do feel bad for them that the kitchen was so ill prepared, though. It was a bad reflection on the restaurant as a whole.
I’d hope to believe that my experience is a complete anomaly and that their product, as a whole, is truly better than what was presented.
Came with family for a post-Christmas dinner on Dec 26. They were out of a few items on the menu because of not being able to get deliveries on Christmas but it wasn’t a big deal. The Malbec on the menu was very nice. We enjoyed all of our dishes and they even comp’d dessert for us when we told them we had come for the hunters stew which they were out of. Great evening dining. Great service. Will definitely be back!
We arrived on time for a 7pm reservation & was told we wouldn't be seated till 7:10 because they were serving a large party??? Ok but the small restaurant was fairly empty otherwise. Not sure what the large party had to do with seating us according to our reservation time - our table was sitting empty while we sat in the hotel lobby waiting.
At 7pm on Sat night I ordered pork entree & our server came back a few minutes later to say they had no pork left. Cranberry bread was really good (would be nice for breakfast-a little sweet)We ordered the Mac & cheese as appetizer which was good but really filling. I decided to get the short rib entree which I really enjoyed. My husband got the chicken which was tender but dry. Not such a great wine selection (very limited & nothing we were familiar with). Menu in general was limited. Service was slow but courteous.
Specializing in locally sourced food. Housed in a modern hotel lobby extension, the local Southern style food does not exactly match the more austere ambiance. The food is excellent though. I am confused by some of the past reviews that stated that the portions were small. The portions were perfectly sized to a bit too big for a 190lb guy. Suggest the chicken thigh and pork belly combo as well as the Brussels Sprouts side and Fried Green tomato starter which arrived with shrimp. Cook comes out to welcome his guests and cooks in the open. Highly suggest on a weekend trip to counter the ambiance of an earlier meal at the Olde Pink House or Elizabeth on 37 to mix it up.
Great food and attention by our server. Salmon, fried green tomatoes and bread pudding were excellent
Ambience - too austere and cold. Need to add wall coverings or something . Also, we walked around for 10 minutes trying to find the restaurant as the signage is small and unlit
Excellent meal and very responsive service. The cocktails were very nice and the pre-meal bread was simply delicious.
We started with the Deviled Eggs appetizer which was perfectly sized and very tasty. My wife then had the vegetarian entree while I tried the Shrimp and Grits. Both meals were faultless!
We split the Bread Pudding dessert to close out our meal. All-in-all, a very relaxing evening together over a delicious meal. Highly recommended if you have not been here yet!
Unique space behind the bar of a boutique hotel. The wine, beer and cocktails menu is larger than the food menu.
The salmon was served over the largest zucchini I have ever seen. The chicken was served over some ancient grains, but both were superbly prepared.
Very quiet place, not a lot of ambience. Went as a group to start a night out and it wasn’t really what we were looking for. Most of our dishes were pretty good but the cheese plate starter was pretty ridiculous- very bland cheese, small portion, and a few pieces of crostini. Cocktails were good though!
The price point is perfect not too expensive. Started with a great server. Got the fired green tomatoes to start and they were amazing. Had a cocktail crafted by the bartender and that was also amazing. Then ordered the mac daddy and the steak and both were out of this world for the price! Loved this place!
The hostess was great, server was good. Food was tasty but could've been much better. Drinks were very pricey for just normal adult beverages like wine or gin and tonic.
The atmosphere was great and loved the art in the great hall. However, I think that we all agreed that this would probably be the last time visiting here except as a meet up location.
