    Inconsistent ... beautiful art decor, delicious food but servers dressed causually in street clothes was inconsistent for the otherwise upscale vibe. At this price point, I expected a more uniform appearance.

    We love the location, the staff, servers and bartenders are outstanding. It’s a great pre-DPAC spot. They make great drinks at the bar. Our problem is the menu. The food is delicious, but the choices are limited. Especially because 2 of our group of 4 have shellfish or seafood allergies. The new chef is very into fish. We’d love to see a more varied menu.
    Counting HouseResponded on January 9, 2024
    Pattie, Thank you for dining with us at Counting House. We appreciate the kind words about the bar and cocktails. In regards to the menu, Counting House was opened as a seafood forward restaurant. We have chosen to return to those roots and celebrate all that NC and the East Coast has to offer in that regard. We hope that next time you are in the mood for that style of cuisine, that you join us again! The CH Team

    I made my reservation with food allergies noted ahead of time. When we arrived they were well prepared with annotated menu addressing the allergies and options for replacements. Every staff member who we were in contact with was aware of the allergies and very gracious about accommodating them for me. It was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious as were the cocktails. Service was on point.

    Beautiful establishment good for smaller or larger groups. Menu skewered a bit towards seafood so not much diversity in choices, but that may change seasonally. Being attached to the hotel and museum is an added plus.

    Food here is good not great, especially for the price. Cocktails are top notch. But the 3 stars comes from the service. We had reservations and when we showed up at the time of the reservation they go “okay we’ll have a table ready in about 15 minutes.” Okay not the end of the world but where’s the explanation. Then they continued to say “you can sit at the waiting area or the bar. We can come get you when a table opens up or if we don’t come find you then come find us.” ??? What do you mean. Overall hosts really put a bad start on the night. After some more words exchanged. Server was slow but very nice. Wouldn’t come back

    It was nearly 15 minutes after we'd been seated before a server came to our table. Gave us menus and basically started reading them to us. Didn't ask if we wanted cocktails (which off course we did). Told us the fish of the day was flounder and that it was a sweet, white, flaky fish, etc. (We, like most folks, know that.) Looked taken aback when asked how it was prepared. When asked if there were any specials, he had to think then replied, "Not that I'm aware of." Started to walk away when we said we'd like to order drinks. "Oh, ok." In all it was 42 minutes from being seated to getting our drinks. Food arrived about 20 minutes later (35 after ordering) and all entrees were mediocre; the sugary on the creme brulee was burned. He was very pleasant but had clearly never been a server before, much less in an upscale venue. This was our third time to the Counting House after two other "meh" visits, and they are out with this third strike for us. So many better restaurants in Durham now - no need to go here.

    I love Counting House! So easy to reserve. Very pleasant staff with warm, welcoming nature. Quickly seated, accessible staff to serve throughout the meal and extraordinary food. The location is perfect for pre- or post-DPAC because there's a garage in the next block on the same street and a very short walk to DPAC. Makes for an ideal experience.

    Worst Thanksgiving meal ever. Can’t imagine a restaurant ever doing a worse job. Overly salted food. Muddled textures. I’ve eaten here before and the food was decent, but their thanksgiving “feast” was a complete rip off. It’s hard to mess up pumpkin pie, but with their food service bulk purchased pies, they managed to so. Even the salad was bad. Never ever again would I have Thanksgiving here. What an embarrassment for this hotel and for Durham.

    We thought the food was good, not not consistently very good or great. Specifically, the sage brioche stuffing was WAY over-salted to the point of being inedible. They were out of cobbler by late afternoon so there was only a single choice for dessert, for which the wait person apologized and offered larger pieces of the remaining pumpkin pie; that did not happen. But there was a lot of food and much of it was very good. The wait staff seemed a bit frenetic. The music was too LOUD (we asked for them to turn it down) and was rather hip hop-pop that didn't seem well-suited to Thanksgiving vibe. I have been to The Counting House before when it was much better.

    The service is not what is expected in fine dining. The service should be impeccable and the servers highly trained. Disappointed for sure…

    We were in town for the Jerry Seinfeld show. The DPAC listed this restaurant as highly recommended. We were excited for the experience of dinner and show. We had a reservation but there was a glitch. The host told us to sit in the lounge and they would get us when our table was ready. I received a text stating our table was ready; but, we were not approached. Finally a hostess came to see if we were indeed the guests and she said she was not told that we’re were told to stay out until fetched. No worries. We ordered, the food came very quickly. I had the scallops, my husband had the shrimp neither was good. The food just was not palatable for us. We were very disappointed.

    Great staff, food and drinks . Had oysters (very fresh and good sauces), their garden salad (delicious and fresh), oyster mushrooms entree ( sooo good, maybe the sauce a bit too sweet for my taste) , and bison burger with fries .

    The staff, though pleasant and helpful did not come across as professional because of the way they were dressed, vey casual. When finding in that atmosphere at those prices, I would have expected a more professional looking staff. The food was just okay.
