Food was great, service was great, awesome selection of beers on tap, live music was fun.
We did the “build your own appetizer”plate along with an order of nachos. Delicious, fun and plenty of food for the three of us to share. Our waiter was personable, funny and well versed in the menu. All around a great experience.
Great service, wonderful ambience, and priced appropriately.
The outside patio was comfortable even at near 100 degree temperature.
Great atmosphere food was delicious and service was great!!
Inside is very loud. So loud my friends and I asked to be moved outside because we couldn’t talk. The hostess was great and loved us quickly on a busy Saturday. But I would choose someplace else that isn’t horribly loud.
So loud. Definitely a spot for the younger crowd. I was sitting right across from my date and the only way we could communicate was vis text message.
Sarah our server was the best! 10/10 for her alone. She made the experience amazing
Service was very slow, food was extremely salty and could not finish. Probably would not return.
Food is amazing but it we were sat at our table 30 minutes after our reservation time.
Food was cold, server was more interested in my partner than doing his job
Food was great. Service was great. Drinks were great. Being seated a foot from the front door so waiting customers could stand over you and discuss your food…not so great.
Met friends for lunch and had a great time.
A hip spot with great food and drinks.... truly better than expected. I had the summer lasagne and it was aMAZing! They were kind enough to bring us the tastiest dessert s'more for our anniversary. Grab a reservation... this place deservedly fills up.
Loved the atmosphere, food, service etc! Such a fun place will definitely visit again if we’re ever in town!
This is a lively place and the food is fantastic. The servers know their food, so ask questions if you’re unsure. We had a blast.
Delicious food, fun atmosphere! Plus, the servers were so helpful & nice.
Music a bit too loud but nice ambience and decent food.
Great experience, food was delightful and service was great.
The food was awesome and the service was impeccable. Very popular restaurant, a tad noisy.
The new jalapeño margarita was not good. Otherwise a good time!
Really enjoyed our time
Culinary Dropout is always a reliable choice for good food. After being seated we were quickly greeted by our waitress. she was friendly and helpful and attentive. We ordered the Gochujang brussel sprouts and crispy bead to start (both excellent). We split the ribs and the chop salad as our main course. Both are items I would order again. Forewarning, the ambiance inside is energetic and quite loud. We were able to sit outside and, while still noisy, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were able to hold a conversation. Overall a great place to eat close to Fashion Square.
Great food. Our server was so nice and gave us great recommendations.
Food and service were great!
There was an issue with tons of flies-spent whole time trying to protect our food
Excellent Customer Service & Great tasting food
We chose to eat here before going to an art exhibit. The food was very good. Our party had different entrees fish and chips, burgers and prime rib sandwich. All the food was well prepared and tasty. Our cocktails were very good ...not short on alcohol.
The clientele is primarily 20-30 years with a few others sprinkled in. It appears to be a very popular place with the young crowd. The restaurant is clean with a party atmosphere. It is extremely loud sometimes making it difficult to talk.
Service was great and the food was delicious.
The food and service is amazing
Server was very friendly and attentive. The rest of the staff I encountered were pleasant as well.
Carley (with a "C" and beautiful blue eyes!) was fantastic! Thanks for a great evening!
Overall our meal was good. My husband raved about the fried chicken to friends that were dining with us, they both ordered it and it came out dried and overcooked! Such a disappointment! The pretzels and cheese are always delicious tho! The service was a bit slow, but I suppose that’s to be expected on a weekend night. The staff were all very friendly and the restaurant is nice, so I gave it an above average rating.
We went to Culinary Dropout for a birthday celebration, and they did not disappoint! The food and service were excellent. The pastrami sandwich was delicious, as was all of our entrees. We're planning our return soon.
Food was very fresh and great. The service was focused on providing us details about each menu item in question. Highly recommend the pretzel bites.
We originally had outdoor seating and switched to indoor seating due to the sewer work and smell going on outside.
My friend and I are visiting from NY. Taylor was amazing! She was personable & welcoming! The food was delicious and the overall experience was great! We can’t wait to be back! Thanks again Taylor!
Very lively but the live band is much too loud. Can barely hear the people you are with and we were on the other side of the restaurant. Need to turn down the speakers just a little bit as people do you like talking to each other when they go out to dinner. I think these speakers were “set to 11“. We’re not at a rock concert. Otherwise, drinks were wonderful and food was really tasty.
Server was super friendly and attentive. The cocktails were delicious and lots of options. My boyfriend had the turkey pastrami and said it was one of the best sandwiches he's ever eaten. It was a super hip and funky restaurant and we had a great time!
Food and service was great. Definitely reserve a table during peak hours.
Food was amazing, portions were perfect, great menu choices
Very nice located in the middle of fashion square mall
Visiting from Chicago we love to try new places
Charcuterie board was the star of the meal
A little disappointed there was no acknowledgment
Of wife’s bday it was on the reservation
