Excellent food. Maple bacon donuts, and beignets with lemon curd are so delish. Wait is LONG, so reserve a table. I feel prices are high, so I’d only go here for a special occasion. Overall, staff and service were on point, we enjoyed our time there.

We went here for my fiancé’s birthday dinner with friends and we were blown away at the food and service! Amazing food!! I had been here for brunch before and it was really good but the dinner was amazing! I highly recommend trying this restaurant out if you have not yet for dinner! Our server was also very friendly and personable and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. All around wonderful meal!! Oh and might I add to order the table side popovers!

Love the atmosphere. Good food. Obviously some dishes are better than others. One order was avocado toast with chicken strips. Chicken was dry and chewy. Overall food is usually good.

Valentine's day prix fix was good. I had the duck and my girlfriend had the carrot risotto. Both were good but not memorable and not worth $90 a person after tax and top with one drink each.

Overall, we had a great experience for Valentines Day. It's a little cramped with the seating arrangements up against the windows, but only as people get seated and leave their table. The service was great and efficient from start to finish. This is an awesome spot for a date or everyday dining. The portions are large, so it would have been nice to know that in advance, but nonetheless we had plenty of good eats to take home. We will definitely be back to enjoy more items on the menu in the near future.

First of all I made a reservation days in advance and I was pretty much set up at one of the worst sections they have for a party of 5 including a baby. I ask the host why I can’t be sat at a different table and why wasn’t I actually assigned a better table considering the fact that I had made a reservation and they have huge booths and she says because she has it assigned to a larger party. Then she comes back and says she can get me a different table but I obviously have to wait. Then we sit down and our server took forever to take our order and that’s pretty much all she did. She saw triggers and I mentioned on my reservation that I was there to celebrate my birthday and nothing was offered. Server was actually an order taker. And hostess wasn’t helpful. Food was indeed good. The lavender lemon mimosa wasn’t that great. Hot lattes are served in a glass cup like the ones they give you to drink the room temp water sitting on their tables thus burning my friends hands.

We went to Great Maple one previous time several years ago and found the interior cramped and the noise overpowering. After seeing the parking lot consistently full I thought it deserved a second chance. After looking at the dinner menu online we made a reservation on a Saturday evening as our date night. It was perfect! The server was friendly and attentive without being pushy; more importantly, our appetizer (calamari) and entrees (crispy chicken and shepherd's pie) were creative, tasty, and filling. Even the house red wine (a Malbec although it varies night by night) was excellent. We can't wait to go back!

Food was good as usual, service was very poor. Our beignets (which is the main reason why we came) came towards the end of the meal, after having to ask about it. I would have cancelled them but my son still wanted them so he ate one piece and we boxed up the rest but they were no good after. Busy brunch but I expected the service to be a bit better, our table next to us with the same server had been checked on multiple times.

Very unassuming from the outside but the food is awesome. The maple bacon donuts are not to be missed and the popover dishes for brunch were amazing. Shared the donuts among four of us and they were a superb appetizer and were plenty! I had the smoked brisket popover (their version of eggs bennie) and it was a big hit. Other dishes were also extremely good.

Only downside was the noise level. Don't know why restaurants these days have hard ceilings, it just reflects the din back down to the diners.

Reservations highly recommended - line was 45 min to an hour but with reservations they seated us right away even though we were 20 minutes early (misjudged traffic). Definitely one of those places I'll take visitors and guests.

Unfortunately was not impressed with this place for the price. Food was ok wasn’t worth how much our bill was. The Peach Bellini was delish but not for $12.95 a glass at brunch! I could make those at home. The beignets and lemon curd was by far the only thing amazing we ate. The service is friendly but very slow. We sat for 5 mins before anyone came to our table to even give us water and at one point forgot we ordered more drinks. Nit sure I’ll go back :(

Even with a reservation, after checking in on time, (10 minutes early), the wait to be seated exceeded 40 minutes. Our server however, was on point. He was so dynamic to our party, we would come back just for his service.
