Service was very slow and unconcerned. Food was well prepared but bland.

The food was good, but there was little ambiance--possibly as we were the only ones there. The mixed potatoes were crispy and the egg scramble was good. The silver dollar chocolate pancakes were a big hit with the kids (and adults) as they were delicious. Our server was very nice as well.

Love the BYOB! Smallish menu but food is excellent! Unfortunately service was terrible, waited 1/2 hour for bread, my husband order pork and was served fish, we both ordered soup and server forgot. We realize its student-run but there didn't seem to be any professional supervision. Our server did not make us feel welcome.

Had dinner here the other night. The flavors were all wonderful. We were a bit rushed due to theater plans which the staff accommodated. I wish we had had more time to linger & savor our meal or try a dessert. I love that it's BYOB. More money to spend on food there! Will definitely return.

Went for a late valentines day dinner. The server was inexperienced, but that was to be expected given it was a school restaurant. Wife got the grilled salmon which was beautiful and well done. They were out of the steak so I was left with the Eyrie Burger which was cooked more rare than medium but still good. Great value for the money and we'd definitely come back.

I have been here any number of times for lunch... I was always pleased with everything about Eyrie. I decided that I wanted to try something local for Valentine's Day... a prix fixe menu. It was an incredible experience. My wife and I had one of the best meals we have ever had... food... presentation... service... were all exceptional. We plan on going back very soon.

The presentation was poor. The pork that I order was over cooked and dried. I know these are students and don't want to be hurtful but attention to details will make you better chefs.

Food is delicious and the portions are good, not to large. Quite you can have a conversation and enjoy yourself.

Always a pleasure dining at Eyrie. The student chefs and hospitality staff work hard at great presentation, taste, and service.'s BYOB, so I can choose my own wine to enjoy with a gourmet meal at very reasonable prices.

Great food at pretty decent prices. Really appreciated the quiet atmosphere. We love that we could support a business that's run by students looking to take positive steps in their lives.

Eyrie is one of our favorite restaurants, where we can count on inventive seasonal menus and excellent service. This time, I tried the braised beef tips with polenta and really enjoyed that twist on mashed potatoes. The peanut squash soup is so full of flavor that it is difficult to follow! is BYOB, so I can pick my favorite wine to pair. We have never been dissapointed there. It is young and fresh and fun to dine at Eyrie.
