It took entirely too long for a server to greet us. When the server finally did come, she failed to introduce herself. I ordered a side of Parmesan truffle fries and asked for it to be brought out immediately for our toddler. They never came. A couple of other things were incorrect. My spicy chicken sandwich was tasty but not hot and my fries were undercooked. The blood orange margarita, while good, could have used a little more alcohol. At one point we realized we had a completely different server who also didn’t introduce herself. No one bothered to check on us to ask how the food was or if we needed anything else. We had unused, dirty plates piling up on our table and no one offered to clear any until the very end. All in all, service is lacking. There’s no attention to detail and no anticipation of guests needs.

We enjoyed the brunch except for the chicken and donuts. The chicken was over cooked and smelled like fish.
My blueberry pancakes were delicious as was my friends rib sandwich.

Feedback to the restaurant- Chicken is pretty blend on fried chicken with donut dish. French toast log needs to be soaked in custard a bit longer before cooking. Center is just bread, no custard. Ambience was good. Food was okay. Could have been better. Waiter was friendly, but service was very very slow. I asked to put maple syrup on the side when French toast was ordered. But maple syrup was poured in the dish. Did not listen to the request or forgot. Either way, not a very good service. And no refill of water. Had to ask for water.

Had a nice lunch with my mom on the outdoor patio. We shared the BLT with side salad, and then had cappuccinos and shared the lemon blueberry donuts for dessert. They were so large that we brought the third one home. Everything was fresh and delicious. Generous portions that are easy to share. We will come back.

I had the maple salmon. I’m originally from Oregon and my father was a commercial fisherman, to include salmon. This is one of the best salmon dishes I have had. It was cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and this dish. I plan to return and try some other dishes.

Met a girlfriend here and we so enjoyed our lunch on the patio right near the fountain. It is located just outside of Nordstrom. The housemade soup (Potato Bacon) was delicious served with warm bread. Of course we had to order the Beignets served with a dusting of powdered sugar and lemon curd on the side. It was all very delicious. Our waitress Hailey was so nice as was the busboy too! Thank you for a fun outing Great Maple!

Had a horrible time getting a reservation, tried calling the restaurant direct and was met with resistance. Was actually told that they don’t handle their reservations in house in weekends, only through open table. The time/capacity I wanted wasn’t available but something similar was 15 minutes later. No biggie. Except we got there and it was empty so not sure why we had the push back initially. The server seemed like she wanted to rush us out, actually asked “do you want the Bloody Mary?” in the middle of us asking what was in it as if we were putting her out by trying to decide. Chilequiles were horrible. Just a pile of mush. We sent them back. My Bloody Mary tasted like shrimp water however everyone else’s was fine. Had a hard time with their patio umbrellas as the wind kept blowing it over. I would have expected they be prepared for that and have weights for their stands. We have been eating outdoors for some time now. We had to close the umbrellas down drag the table around the patio to get some shade.
But that BLT was amazing! The only thing amazing

The host was rude when we asked to be properly socially distanced from another table and did not check us in under open table so I had to justify that we were actually present after getting an email from open table that we did not show up for our reservation.

I highly recommend the chicken caprese salad - delicious veggies, moist, tender chicken and a yummy dressing. Two other people in our group had the steakhouse burger, medium rare, and really enjoyed it. Sitting on the patio close to the large fountain was perfect because the noise of the water blocked other noises and made it easy to talk across the table.

Had dinner here with the family. Service was awesome. Our server gave us very good recommendations. We had the truffle fries which was unreal; it had a very good flavor to it. I had the chopped salad; large serving. My husband had the chicken bowl; he says it was decent. My little girl had the Mac and cheese and she enjoyed that! I recommend their mule; very refreshing!

The general manager was out front checking people in and she was so rude it caught me off guard. It was our first time here and we more than likely won’t be back bc of how she treated us. We eat out 4 times a week and have never been greeted so rudely by a restaurant employee.

THE FOOD IS AMAZING!!! Wow so impressed and blow away with how amazing the food was. The eggs Benedict’s were perfection and the prime rib sandwich with truffle fries were to die for. We took some seasonal samosas donuts they had and even my family was obsessed. Will definitely be going back!

Adrian our waiter was great! My Mom likes to enjoy a glass of wine before we order, and I think Adrian read her perfectly. My Mom always feels "rushed" so when Adrian picked up on that, he took a few steps back and let the process develop. Food was awesome (as always). Would have liked a few heat lamps circulating warm air (as it was cold outside), but we managed. We'll be back!!!
