Presentation of the food was not great, too much of it on the plate, which made it look overwhelming. One of us had the trout and one of us had pork chops both of us had that same experience.

We work in the Market East neighborhood, and Bank & Bourbon has become one of our favorite local restaurants. Most recently we shared the lobster pasta and the grilled octopus - both were delicious. The cheese and cured meats boards are reliably good, and the wines by the glass all quite drinkable. The ambiance is quiet and sophisticated. Hotel restaurants are often nothing special but Bank & Bourbon is an unexpected pleasure.

Go when you have time to hang out. Service is good when they pay attention to you. They seem understaffed or really laid back; I can’t tell which it was.

Restaurant wasn’t very busy and our server appeared to be quite harried and distracted. Was told the blue cheese dressing for a wedge salad had to be retrieved from the storage room and would take a bit of time. My son ordered a pork chop as recommended by the waiter. It arrived overdone and flaky. The management apologized and removed it from our final bill, and I commend them for taking responsibility. Overall the food tasted average and was overpriced for the quality. This is a hotel restaurant so keep in mind when choosing.

Second time dining here. Restaurant was quiet both times since it was early in the evening so atmosphere and noise level were low. But the service was great and the food excellent. Would recommend for a date or small party. Will definitely dine here again.

Had oysters, duck, mushrooms, asparagus, and the cowboy dinner for two so so so delicious. Very creative cheese board with lots of cheese and of course some 12 yr Elijah single barrel bourbon!!! My favorite drink was the Tipping the Velvet. Super creative with having a mismatch variety of plates!

The food was fair to ok. We had the white bean soup which was a tomato based broth. Interesting but had no flavor. I added salt and peppr but it did not help. My son and I did not eat it. The wedge salad was ok. The whipped Ricotta was very good but needed a bigger portion of ricotta. Was small and we had bread left over. The truffle fries were ok. The side of mushrooms tasted like pepper was dumped on it. The NY strip was ok, salty and not medium. More medium well. It came with watercress salad but really it was a hand full of microgreens thrown on top. They should leave off. The Ahi tuna dinner was fair. The duck was ok. Small portion. The trout was ok. A bit dry. The lemon yogurt dressing had no flavor. It was a spoonfull of plain yogurt on the plate. It would have been a nice compliment to taste the lemon and it needs to be thinner consistency. If they add lemon juice it probably would have been. The peach cobbler was terrible. It tasted like flour. the cobbler on top was not even brown and crisp. Soggy. Looked and tasted like it was not even cooked. A disappointing dinner. Will not be returning.

We chose Bank and Bourbon for Fathers Day brunch and greatly enjoyed it! The selection was fantastic- scallops, shrimp, Prime Rib, full hot breakfast options, fruit, salad, etc.
Our kids had lots of options and overall, the price was very reasonable for what we had. I especially enjoyed the Bloody Mary bar where I constructed my drink to my preference.

I thought the restaurant overall was ok, the wait staff were fine, the establishment was fine, the food presentation (Saturday Brunch/Buffet) was lovely, but the temperature of the food was poor. The chaffing dish sternos were lit, but my frittata, breakfast meats, potatoes etc were all lukewarm so that’s why the food scored a fair. Paying $151 for 4 for buffet/brunch and eating lukewarm food was disappointing, however the food was still tasty... I will revisit restaurant, but not for a buffet/brunch.

Great food and great service. The only drawback was the high noise level. It was difficult to converse with my wife across the table. I would not hesitate to go there again.

the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. For being an expensive restaurant it lacked that stuffy air of haughtiness most expensive restaurants have. We spent more than 2 hours on our meal and the staff made us feel very welcome. The ambiance was missing as I never got a feel that there was a theme I could relate to. But I’m about value for money and the food and the overall experience made it well worth it.

We went to Bank & Bourbon for a quick work lunch during a convention. The nice thing was that they were taking reservations earlier than 11:30am, which many local restaurants didn't. We had to sneak this in before 1:00pm meetings, so that was very important. The menu isn't huge - but it was solid and we had great service, quick food delivery and we were back to the meetings in time! I'd definitely go back.

Food was great. Portions were relatively small (except the orange juice) but adequate.

Service got mixed up in the kitchen. Some food didn’t come and then had to get cooked.

Also, got overcharged on the bill. Billed for one too many fruit bowls. I didn’t realize until I was looking at the bill about 10 minutes after leaving the restaurant.

I called about the $9.00 extra charge. The phone reciptionist said she would ask her manager what they could do to rectify it and then she’d call me back. It’s been about 7 hours and I have not gotten a call back. Perhaps the call is still forthcoming but it shouldn’t take this long to correct and incorrect charge.

Lovely atmosphere and fantastic service!! Appetizer octopus was great but the pear & fennel salad was just ok, nothing special. Parm fries were incredibly disappointing. Our steaks were ridiculously undercooked for what we requested and we did tell our waiter, who brought us 2 free desserts, which I'm sorry to say, were just not that great. The steaks were also not seasoned. For the money you'd pay to eat here, I'd say choose some place else or just get appetizers and drinks.

I was quite disappointed. I ordered a chicken entree to take with me. I thought it was placed in my to go bag with the leftovers of my meal. I did not notice it until I was planning to eat it the next day. The sad thing was I saw my server as I was leaving and he did not remember he told me he was wait for when I was done my meal to put the entree in my to go bag.

This is a hotel restaurant, which I must have missed on the website. It is part of a large busy lobby with a massive TV, which was actually fun and the better part of the restaurant. It has a nice large bar and comfortable interior - as you might expect for a steakhouse that promotes bourbon. I suspect, because it is a hotel restaurant, that the tables are all two tops that can be combined to create very large tables, which is convenient for them. Very few, if any, square four tops to provide a bit more working room. Food was fine. My guest had a good steak well prepared. Ran out of the salad wedge and had to send back to oysters I ordered. Presentation of food was a non-event. It was just off.
