    We like going here because all diners can find food they enjoy and/or are able to eat. We have always enjoyed going here for the good food, the very good service. We look forward to getting to eat on the patio.

    Eatery A is fantastic! We had a reservation for 4 at 4pm on a Saturday. We were seated promptly & the server arrived within a couple minutes. They have a great happy hour special so we took advantage of that. 1/2 price pizzas & draft beer. The pizza was delicious! I suggest the #2.

    Second time dining here but first time inside. Arrived at 5:30pm and the parking lot was packed full. Sat in the small dining room along the west side of the building and it was very loud with a large group next to my table. The room was also very dimly lit, which makes for reading the small font menu challenging. The service was outstanding and the food was very good: chicken shawarma and lasagna were very tasty.

    My girlfriend and I came here for the first time for a little date night. We really enjoyed the food, and the service was excellent. The pizzas are the real deal. Light and fluffy with great flavor. We will be back in the spring/summer for some Happy Hour’s when the weather gets nice.

    Not sure if it was just a bad night but the duck was way under cooked. The pineapple pizza was not edible we had to send back it was a soggy limp mess. The lasagna was black burnt around the edge. The waitress was more attentive to the drinkers than the table service. The only saving grace as the baba ganoush and the hanger steak otherwise it was dissapointing which my son said is the first time he has had a bad experience and he has been there several times.. not sure I will attempt another visit

    As always, Eatery A food is incredible! The booth we were at had a lighting issue and was abnormally dark. Additionally, the only 2 beers we asked for that were listed on the menu, they don’t actually serve due to an outdated menu. Still love it there and will go back!

    I came here thinking I'd get a late lunch but I was pleasantly surprised that they ha. 3pm! With that came bottomless mimosas at just $16.99!! The place has a very rustic ambiance and wasn't too loud either. It has booths, high top tables and regular tables, so an option for everyone. The menu is vast and has a ton of vegetarian options, which was great. I ordered spicy potato bravas which were the right amount of spicy, right there in the middle. The quantity is not excessive and perfect for a 1 person appetizer. As an entree I ordered an asparagus and sweet corn grain bowl. Let me tell you, the presentation was exquisite. I chose the egg option and the eggs were perfectly poached and over easy. I loved my experience and the service is absolutely outstanding. At the last minute I decided to order a strawberry pot de creme to top off my meal, absolutely amazing!!

    The food and service was great! We were placed in a room that became packed where you could not hear anyone else at the table, it was so loud. It kind of ruined our girls night experience. I’ve been multiple times, but this was my first experience inside. I will wait until the patio is open again.

    Our party of four (2 couples) stopped in at Eatery A before a concert. We shared three starters (roasted mushrooms, brussels and Moroccan carrots). The mushrooms and brussels were divine; the carrots were very tasty, but were served "al dente" style with a little more crispness to them than we would have expected for a cooked carrot dish. We then shared a #8 pizza (hot honey, capicola and pineapple) which was delicious and perfectly cooked, and three skewers (shrimp, pork souvlaki and chicken schwarma). The pork was incredible...very flavorful, perfectly cooked and served on a bed of delicious vegetables. Shrimp and chicken were also good, but the pork was a standout. For drinks, we had an IPA, seltzer, and two white sangrias. All were tasty and served at appropriate temperatures. Our server was knowledgeable, made good suggestions about portion sizes, and was familiar with the menu and offerings. Overall, we had a great time before our show, and enjoyed delicious food and service in an inviting atmosphere. We would recommend Eatery A for tapas style mediterranean food.

    We had reservations but had to wait for our table for about 15-20 minutes. It was very loud - hard to hear conversation. We were there on Friday night. Maybe during the week it would be a little quieter. The food was very good. We had pizza & pasta. The service was pretty good. We had some trouble getting our waitress over for more drinks. It was really busy so hard to blame her too much! Overall, it was very tasty meal just a little loud in the restaurant.
