Hall Street was already permanently closed, although I got a reservation confirmation email that morning.
My wife and I have been to Hall Street a number of times and have always enjoyed the experience. Sadly this time we were let down. We had reservations for 7:00 pm and when we arrived we were told they were running late and it would be 10 or 15 minutes. Okay, no big deal. After 10 or 15 minutes they told us every few minutes that it would be just a couple more minutes. We were finally seated a little after 7:35 pm. Our waiter took a little longer than he should to come by the table and when he did he saw we were dining with a Groupon and was going to be "right back" with the Groupon (Chef's Special) menu. That took another 10 minutes or so. While we were waiting for the menus we ordered a bottle of wine, which it turned out they were out of, but of course they had plenty of (more expensive) options available. When the appetizer was delivered the waiter asked if we wanted bread and butter to go along with the next (salad) course. We said yes, but it never arrived. Shortly after receiving the appetizer the waiter came back to inform my wife that they were out of the Mahi Mahi but they had another seafood dish they could substitute, to which she agreed. When we got our meals they were delicious, but the service and organization that evening could have been much better.
Service was a little slow and I didn't get the shrimp with my meal. But we loved Hall Street. I'm bummed that is is closed now. :(
Our server was Nathan. He provided excellent non-intrusive service. The courses were well timed. We were able to linger over our family dinner and enjoy being together.
Service was slow. 3-6 meals were not what we ordered when the got to table.
Had note been here for quite a few years.
Ford was wonderful.
N.Y. strip was great rivals specialty steak houses. Salmon was tasty
Waiter was slower than slow.
Cost was too high.
The bartender was tossing and breaking glass bottles around like we in a Texas longneck bar
We were there for Valentines Day. When we mentioned that our waiter wasn't very attentive, the restaurant manager went above-and-beyond to make our special night exceed expectations. We enjoyed a memorable dinner and would definitely recommend this restaurant. We will return ourselves.
The feel of this restaurant is very nice but casual enough to not feel uncomfortable. The only let down was that I wasn't seated until 25 minutes after my reservation time.
Service was outstanding. The food was good- pea salad and wedge salad great. The raviolis were delicious, the sole was okay- mainly deep fried and sad to say a bit greasy for such a good piece of fish, but all in all the meals were enjoyable. The bread pudding was excellent. It is a bit pricey- but the ambiance for a special occasion was worth it.
