We went the day before Thanksgiving and it was very empty. The hostess sat us all the way in the far back corner. I asked for possibly a different table and she said they were all “reserved.” We also had a reservation (via open table). Upon leaving, only one more table was seated.

Had brunch with a few friends and they were awesome. From check in, to service! So many places you can tell they are short staffed. At Clouds if they were, it didn’t show. Food and service were above par.

Celebrated my birthday here for a Sunday Brunch and I would highly recommend coming here for a brunch. We got a mimosa carafe and they used a whole bottle of champagne to fill it. The breakfast was also very good.

We have been here quite a few times over the years. We have noticed that the food quality has gone down along with the wait times to even just get drinks. This is not just because of covid because we have noticed it prior to covid. We only returned because they were the only place with a last minute 7pm opening for 8 people, which should tell you something.

The beer was great, the food was very disappointing. I got the steak and shrimp fajitas and there was literally no seasoning. I had to ask for some sort of sauce. My husband got the blackened mahi tacos and it wasnt truly blackened. I hated paying my bill because we had just a bad food experience.

Disappointed that they sat a group of 5 at a table for 4. Felt it could have been managed better but we went with the flow.

First time visit. Meet up with friends and brought our dog. Sat on patio on a chilly evening since we had the pup. Would really have liked to have had a propane heater or two out there! Highly suggest management to get some to make the dining experience outside that much nicer, especially if you bring your dog.
Beer and food were great! Fajitas, bratwurst plate and vegan burger with sweet potato fries hit the spot! Apps of fried pickles and cauliflower bites were a hit with our table also. Highly suggest all. Can’t miss with any of their beers!
Server was attentive and friendly, food came out quickly. All in all a great experience, just wish we could have been a little warmer!

Disappointed in the food overall. Been here other times and it was much better previously. They seemed to have enough help working but we didn’t see our server very often.

Great drinks but below average food. Friend chicken sandwich was a 4/10. Brisket sandwich was a 6/10. Fries although, were incredible. Average experience overall. With all the great options in Raleigh, will likely not be returning.

This is a great neighborhood location with really solid dinners. We had two of the seasonal cocktails and the cauliflower app for a starter and it was delicious, a nice elevated bar food with a good portion for two people to split. Our dinner choices, the salmon and the brisket, were both delicious. This is a great place to go and on a rainy weeknight the patio was a lovely place to be!

Our group of three enjoyed our food and drinks. They got my order correct and my flatbread was even tastier than I expected. The wait staff accommodated our table move due to the glaring setting sun. The staff was attentive and took care of us. Our plates were cleared by staff other than our waiter. We had to flag him down to get our check. Would not have been an issue at all, except one of us was on a schedule.

The service was great but the food was just "meh." Nothing special. The brunch hasbrowns are the frozen kind that you get at a school lunch (the little triangles.) Lots of things covered in beer cheese, which is fine but not remarkable. Not a great spot of vegetarians (at least for brunch). If you eat eggs you will be OK if you ask them to take out the meat, but if you don't eat eggs you will be SOL.

This place is fine. The beer/cider list was extensive and we had some really nice beers, and the food was okay, but the service was poor. We may try it again when things return to normal and the world is fully staffed again. 🤷‍♂️
