Staff was friendly and fun, food was ok.. but waiting over an hour for our entrees after ordering was maddening. Hard to enjoy food when you're already unhappy and have advanced from "pretty hungry" to "nauseated hungry."

Also, the food - I had the hen, my partner had the salmon - was "good," but just not on par with the reviews that made me want to try this joint.

A regular cup of coffee was $4.50 and the coffee wasn't the best I've ever had. There was coffee in the saucer underneath the cup when it arrived at my table so that when I picked up my cup, coffee dripped off of it onto my clothes. I ordered granola and yogurt and when my food arrived, I wasn't given a spoon. My waitress came back at the end of my meal and remembered she had not given me a spoon. By that time, I had become pretty adept at using my fork to eat my yogurt. My friend, a vegetarian, ordered the classic breakfast, without bacon, and bacon arrived on her plate. The restaurant was quite noisy and I found nothing special about the decor. I visited the restroom on the way out and it was roasting inside. Is it on the other side of the kitchen? It must have been 80 degrees in there. I eat out quite frequently and have visited many restaurants in many cities, but I think I could have had a better meal, with much greater value, at an IHOP or Shari's.

One of these things is not like the other.

I wanted to love this place, second time we’ve been there and I wanted it to be more. We walked in and were greeted and taken complete care of by the hostess and service staff. They were fantastic. Asked a few questions about the menu and the cocktail menu. The food was an 8 on a scale of 1-10 and the chocolate chestnut cake had so much salt it was inedible. The waiter comped it... thank you! As we sat there drinking coffee and trying to have a conversation we all realized we were fighting the rock and roll sound track on a 9. Why, why in this lovely dining room would you be blaring .... blaring.... blaring a soundtrack that is so distracting you can’t have a conversation? Didn’t anyone notice the medium age was 50? We came to dine and enjoy our conversation! Impossible with Rod Stewart screaming in your ear.
As we left, I told the hostess how much we liked the food and service, but what the hell was with the music? She responded it’s the chefs choice and insists on playing it. The chef should try and have dinner in the dining room with their friends. In my business the music is part of our ambience, it’s selected to enhance the experience, not fight it.

Food was amazing! Service was very good until our server got more tables. We waited for entrees, and waited longer to clear table and receive dessert menus. Over all very good, and would hope serve staffing could better accommodate a high caliber restaurant.
Again, food was amazing!

Early dinner booked, happy hour cocktails first in the lounge area. Loved the interior and ambiance, lighting and use of repurposed objects. Service was friendly but spotty in dining room for a quiet night, only 4 other tables seated and at different times.

The food was good, but I'd expected more for the price. Seems that brunch here is what many reviewers mention. I would return but perhaps for brunch next time I'm in town.

We came, yet again, to dine at this restaurant because they serve the Impossible Burger (an outstanding vegan hamburger). As vegans, not much for us to find in the menu but we love the location, the atmosphere, service and the Impossible Burger dish.

Being a law student, I don't often like to spend a crazy amount on dinner, but as I have a special lady in my life, I like to treat her. This restaurant came as a recommendation with the caveat of it being "worth the price." While unsure how reliable the recommendation could be, I reserved a table for 6:00pm that night. We walked in and were greeted by a friendly hostess and were immediately seated at a table for two. However, I would recommend calling and reserving a private booth if you can. Our table was just fine, but the booths are a bit more secluded and romantic. We ordered the spoon bread appetizer while I waited for my salmon and she waited for her stuffed guinea. Although I'm lactose intolerant and the cheesy spoon bread came back with a vengeance in the morning, it was delicious. I'm from the south and it did not disappoint my cornbread expectations. When our plates arrived, we were a little disappointed with how small the portions seemed, but we both became full about halfway through our plates. We made sure to finish our meals, though, because they were incredible. We moved out here this summer and that was hands down the best meal either of us have had. While the price for the appetizer, two entrees, two ciders, and two beers, plus a gracious tip came out to be $110, I would happily pay that price again. I now know where to take my parents when they visit for Christmas.

Everything was really great; the menu was limited but with incredible options, the service was warm and helpful, and the ambiance was lovely! Very Nu-Portland Hip. My only complaint is that my bacon was pretty burnt/overdone. I didn’t complain but if I had I’m sure they would have happily replaced it. I can’t wait to go back to try their happy hour and dinner menus!

We had a great dinner at Irving Street Kitchen! Food was excellent and service was exceptional. We had scallops, salmon and the hangar steak at our table and all were delicious. The butterscotch pudding was out of this world, and the apple dessert was fantastic! Brought some friends from out of town based on the recommendation of a friend, and we will be back!

The food was terribly salty. I ordered their fried chicken and collards. What a joke! Trying too hard to be southern food? The cod was definitely freezer burned and the proteins broke down during cooking which made it soggy. $126 dinner....what a waste.

An old friend and I were catching up over dinner. We started at some cozy seats by the fireplace in the bar with cider and an appetizer (chicken-fried oysters - crunchy outside, creamy inside) and then moved to an intimate table tucked next to a short bookcase. We had a lovely evening - excellent, caring but not obtrusive service, and memorable food. I had the cod with crawfish cream sauce which was very good but my friend's dish was the winner - jackfruit with delicata squash. They were like sweet, creamy crab cakes! Wonderful combination of flavors. Wish we lived here and could make it a regular occurrence!!!!
