Felt rushed by server...I give the benefit of the doubt that they are used to people going to shows but we were not and made that clear.

And the biggest issue is the chairs scraping across the concrete nails on a chalkboard. Easily fixable problem by putting pads on the feet of the chairs.

We got several small plates to try different options. The Blue cheese soufflé was amazing!!!

Halcyon has never been anything but perfect . We have enjoyed lunch, dinner and breakfast on the weekends. The food is delectable and always wonderfully seasoned. Staff as good as the food. Why would you go anywhere else?

The Dover Sole was outstanding and so was our waitress Maria. Next time we want to try sitting outside, but were going to the Alt Sounds/Symphony at the Knight Theatre and of course I didn't want to have the windy hair look going there. But it's the perfect eating spot before a performance at the Knight.

We visited Halcyon in July and the food was incredible, we had a hard time narrowing our choices as there were so many items we wanted to order. Unfortunately, this time was totally different. Upon arriving, our hostess was great as we wanted to sit at a 4 top table and she moved us from a 2 top and was very nice about our request. We preceded to order 2 glasses of wine and my $17/glass of red was not good,tasted flat with no flavor,like it had been sitting in a opened bottle for 2 weeks. Our server was very nice and got me what my husband ordered and was very accommodating. While looking over the menu, we were surprised that there just weren’t that many items that looked good so we only ordered 3 items:salad,duck confit pasta and Dover sole. The salad was great, pasta was undercooked and very hard/chewy but the sauce was good and the Dover was flavorless, it needed more herbs or something to give it some taste. We hope they look at their menu and come up with new items and get a new chef who knows how to cook. Sorry but we love good food and Halcyon was a dissapointment😢

A bit rushed - we told them we had an event and allowed 2 hours for dinner but they kept telling us how busy they were and the kitchen was backed up. Still one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Order the cheese soufflé- you’ll wish you had ordered 2.

We dined at Halycon for an at-work bridal shower! We had a reservation, therefore, once we arrived, we were promptly seated at a beautifully craved wooden table that sat in the middle of the room! The food was delicious and the service, even better. We could not have asked for a better server than Allison - she was very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive! We will definitely go back - particularly in warmer weather so that we can sit outside and enjoy the view!
