Honestly the best experience we’ve ever had at a restaurant

Loved every single dish. Had a 2 course meal with dessert and it did not disappoint. New flavors I’ve never tried before!!

Outstanding service with a quality meal. Celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and everything was perfection, including the personalized menu!
We had all courses. Our favorite by far was the venison. So much flavor!

Amazing dinner. We were a party of four and tried different cocktails, appetizers and mains. Fantastic cocktails. Loved the pasta and sausage appetizer. The pasta was light and flavorful. The sausage wasn’t too salty and great base items that complimented the sausage. Tried the fish steak beef cheeks and pork chop. All great. I’d go back for the pork chops! Too full for dessert but they looked very good.

We spent our 29th Anniversary at the Boiler Room and can't say enough good things. From the complimentary glass of champagne, to the delicious and abundant charcuterie appetizer and the wonderful service. The night started out perfect. We had the salmon plate and the Wagyu Sirloin as well. Perfectly executed cocktails made for a wonderful special evening. Bravo Boiler Room.

OH MY ! Exceeded my expectations. Would definitely recommend, food/ drinks were amazing & service was exceptional. We were lucky to be served by Chelsea who happened to also be the pastry chef! She was so friendly and surprised us with macaroons that were out of this world. Perfect way to end a great romantic date night.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were taken care of . Our wait staff of three different gals were all knowledgeable and very helpful . Appetizer of ravioli was perfect. Wine, delicious. Entree of a new fish for-me was Opah which was delicate and delicious. The plates were beautiful and my spouse had a delicious pork dinner that he loved. Next came a cup of really good espresso and two delectable desserts served to us by the dessert chef. Her pride in her work was warranted as each was delicious. We were celebrating our anniversary and we will be going back again for the next special event. If you are looking for something special.... this is the place!

Our group dined outside in honor of a special occasion, and I'm so happy we picked the Boiler Room because the whole experience was lovely and memorable. The staff were friendly and fun, and their recommendations were on point. The food and cocktails? Outstanding. Thank you, Boiler Room folks, for giving us a perfect night!

The food was inventive and absolutely perfect. Well built charcuterie plate, duck and pork entrees that were more than memorable, well paired wine suggestion…and desserts that spotlighted sweet corn and the idea of a deconstructed Moscow mule (next level pastry chef no doubt). Wow.

Being new to the area we had tried a few nice places but not outstanding. This was our first truly great meal. We indicated this was a birthday and though there was no candle or acknowledgment verbally there was a happy birthday printed on the menu. Our table overlooked the chef and the food and presentation were fabulous. I love the interior and also loved that I wasn’t frozen by a/c! Thanks! Drinks were great too. The only disappointment is dessert. Just not up to the level of the rest of the meal. Service was friendly and attentive. We will be back.
