Ok for a breakfast place. A bit overpriced especially since many items were at the end and were not replaced. The omelette station was missing a few ingredients and the grits pan was empty. A server said he would bring more out but never did.
I recently hosted my book club's meeting at Apropoe. The service and food were both excellent. Our server, Mustapha, was very attentive and accommodating. One of my guests, a vegetarian, unknowingly ordered a grilled cheese sandwich which had bacon jam on it. When she mentioned this, the chef replaced her sandwich with a bacon-free substitution. Another one of my guests was bothered by the sun in her eyes while she was dining. The restaurant staff graciously remedied this problem by lowering the electronically-operated shade. In addition, even though I had made a reservation for 8, I had ten guests show up, and the restaurant staff accommodated us by adding additional chairs. I would definitely give Apropoe high marks for customer service!
I was really hoping the crab cakes would be worthy of their location, but they were a bit bland. They skimped on the aioli and the corn relish, so this main plate was lacking in diversity of flavors and textures. Pineapple upside down cake was unremarkable. Overall, I was expecting better tasting food at this price point.
This supposedly Poe-themed restaurant had nothing Poe related to be found, so that was a let down there. The restaurant has a combination of tables and lounge areas, so you can take your pick of seating. The room was dark and quiet enough to have easy conversations at our table.
Went here for a business breakfast. I had the egg white frittata which was pretty healthy and delicious. I would have appreciated a side of potatoes, fruit or something else with it.
Fantastic service and a great atmosphere. I loved the seating arrangements with the bench.
The breakfast buffet on both days was excellent. The skimpy dinner special...thumbs down.
I wish i could remember our servers name...she was awsome!!! We were going to Steely Dan show and came in for dinner before hand. Made good recommendations and so friendly. We just had bottle of wine and sandwiches and all were GREAT!!!
Good food made with fresh ingredients, nice server, and comfortable seating (both in the restaurant and the lounge). A better view of the harbor would have been nice, but all in all we had a fine brunch.
We both ordered the soup (crab/corn chowder and red pepper) and they were good. We had the pasta with bolognaise sauce and it was good, but left a vinegar-like after taste. We ordered the crab pizza and it was just OK -nothing to rave about. Overall the food was good - but I wish we would have tried another place as many other restaurants had spectacular reviews. This restaurant was selected for convenience.
Service was slow. We waited 15 minutes before we had to ask someone to assist us to take our order then it took another 5 minutes. Initially the waffle was cold and hash brown were very oily. The waffle was warmed in the microwave brought back to us flipped over as it was a newly made waffle. Finally, I talked to person who worked in the kitchen and he had them to make another waffle. Very dissatisfied. The manager Katie wasn't very helpful either. She never checked to see if everything was alright.
Very cool location and ambiance, but the food was not good at all. The overly expensive hamburger was just a meatball of low grade beef that looked grey and had no flavor at all. The ravioli was nothing special and was bland. The tomato soup boasted a Parmesan cheese "puff" which was nothing more than an airy bread stick, while the soup was like Campbell's. Overall a very expensive place with very lack luster food.
