Slow and aloof waiter, borderline rude. Water glasses sat empty and waited 15min for check. Great support staff and food.

Service was horrible, one of the items ordered was a hamburger well done and when my guest took a bite it was so bloody that the blood ran right into the bun, I asked for it to go back and when they returned it was the same exact hamburger, nothing had changed. Drinks were never refilled. The waiter was never in site. I asked for an iced tea and the sugar and etc. were not brought out and I had to wait and wait for the waiter to come around the area of our table so that I could ask for some. I’ve had lunch and dinner in other department store restaurants but this one by far was the worst!

Fred’s always delivers as a great meeting place for lunch or dinner. Lunch is bustling and service can be spotty, so overlook it for excellent entree salads, pastas, grilled fish and a nice selection of wines by the glass. It’s a combination of shoppers and local business people. My favorite lynch is either Mark’s salad or the chicken salad (no onion for me). Dinner is much more subdued. Do have the grilled branzino.

The male host tried to seat us next to the worker’s service station when the restaurant was almost empty. We had a reservation. He tried seating other guests there too. It Was offensive to us and other guests. We watched as multiple guests wouldn’t sit at the worst table in the restaurant . Luckily, our server was great. She saved the evening from being a disaster.

Food delicious as always. Service wasn’t great. Our salad was not divided in two even though we told waiter we were sharing. It was divided after we asked. Eventually asked for a pitcher of water because refills were not coming anytime soon. We were seated on time.

Wonderful place. Unfortunately we sat at the bar where one patron decided to have an extensive and loud cell phone conversation while she drank a glass of wine. Would ask that you consider a cell phone policy or a courtesy note on the menu.
Otherwise, always a great respite from shopping and a convenient and yummy place to frequent.

The location is convenient so I have been going there for year. However, I think the restaurant could use a refurbish. It feels a bit run down and the food is just ok...used to be better. Overall, not bad but not special either.

The food was good and priced about what is to be expected given the location (a room with a view). We were among the first to be seated for lunch and both the hostess and waiter seemed to be just going through the motions. It was not a welcoming feeling. Other staff members had the right level of energy and effort. My takeaway -- whole point of going to Fred's is to see and been scene. Excellent place to people watch if that's your thing.

Food is between meh and bad. Service is poor. The prices are high. The amazing issue with this restaurant is the number of people who eat here given the quality and prices of the food. I regret not reading the latest reviews on yelp before making reservations.

A bit expensive for the food quality. Tuna tartar had twice more vinegar than expected. Fried calamari were really good - that's why I gave 3 stars, not 2. Noisy, with no decor accents.
