    This is the second time we’ve dined at the Krebs. The bar is fantastic & they make a fabulous cosmo. Sadly, for the second time, our dinner was dragged out way too long. Our reservation was at 7, we were seated promptly. But by 8:40, we still had no dinner. They have plenty of wait staff, so the holdup must have been in the kitchen. A shame, as it ruined a nice evening.

    The service was incredible. The ambiance was awesome. Wine, The duck, The lamb and the crumble was VERY good!. The wagyu was not the best I’ve had at all,still good but for sure wasn’t the best wagyu out there…but to leave off on a positive note! The lamb was to die for! For sure would recommend.

    We were rushed out so fast my head is still spinning! 45 min is not "fine dining." Food was subpar and not worth the price or the hype. Will not go back.

    We had to sit for the music volume to be turned down. The playlist would be a teen treat not for the sophisticated ambiance of this restaurant. My chicken definitely had pink meat at the wing joint. The waiter relayed the message to the chef and I was told “Yes, that’s because there is a tendon connected there”. Really! To me it said undercooked regardless of reason. Service was very attentive.and friendly. The menu was very difficult to read: Brown print on beige, fancy script , dim light means I was not sure of options and prices. One diner took out her phone for the flashlight! Not classy to have to resort to that. If the mystery of the menu was the point, it was accomplished

    Beautiful setting, attentive young staff. Dining area is broken up into small rooms making it easy to talk even as the restaurant got more busy. We shared a very good salad with a bright, lemony dressing. My husband had duck breast which he really enjoyed. I had a vegetarian dish with a green goddess dressing that was a bit heavily dressed. Dining room was a bit chilly, but overall a very nice dinner.

    The Krebs was a good restaurant. I thought the food was very good but not great. The Caesar salad was alright but not spectacular. The hamburger was excellent. Did it change my life? No, it did not. I would give the Krebs four stars out of five. Service was five star., And the room was very nice

    We had thought that restaurants with trained serving staff had disappeared, so we were very pleasantly surprised to find excellent service at The Krebs. All of the servers are young, so management clearly spends time teaching each one. All were pleasant and respectful and knew just when to appear. When parking in the rear, we were greeted nicely by a staff person clipping fresh herbs. On top of this, the building has been immaculately restored (I'm a very picky architect) and beautifully appointed. Food was perhaps a bit too ambitious, but delicious. And the bar and lounge are perfect for that fall and winter hideaway!

    Wait staff does not know the menus, and hostesses was dressed inappropriately for a fine dining establishment, she looked to he dressed in nothing more then a slip.. Myself and my husband both ordered soup to start, we were instead served one soup and one salad, when I told them that was wrong I was told the salad in front of me was the soup that I ordered, after a few minutes the server realized that salad was not soup and brought the second bowl of soup out telling us it was the kitchens fault. On my third spoonful of soup I felt something hard and it turned out to be a large piece of plastic, possibly from the container the soup came from? Our table placing included a bread plate with butter knife, however no bread was offered or served until we asked for it. The cocktails were good however my glass of red wine was served in a white wine glass. Our entrees were cooked correctly however lacked any flavor. This is a very poor representation of fine dining and very disappointing.

    when we arrived our table on the porch had a reserved sign so i was happy . we were told to wait inside until the hostess "checked" the table. not sure what there was to check so we were awkwardly standing in the foyer when we could have just sat at our table especially while everyone is trying to social distance...otherwise it was delightful as usual, we love it here the ambiance is wonderful, food decent, service good , this is on my list of favorite places

    We had a lovely dinner at the Krebs a few nights ago, and again last night. The atmosphere and decor are cute and charming and the food was excellent. I can highly recommend the gazpacho, the tuna tartare and the Cesar salad. The burrata with grilled peaches and yellow tomatoes was fantastic! Very fresh and fragrant with a delicious balsamic dressing.. The burger was good too, as was the green goddess farro. And last night, I discovered the duck croquettes...those are not to be missed. Overall, a very satisfying experience, made even more pleasant by the group of young servers tending our table, Trevor, Alex and Nick (first night) and Tom W last night. Tom was very attentive and professional, a real asset to the restaurant.

    Krebs did a fabulous job of making a family reunion for 10 of my brothers and sisters a special night. We had what felt like a private room that was decorated with beautiful floral arrangements and comfortable seating that set the ambiance. The food and wine completed the scene only rivaled by the wonderful service. Would definitely recommend Krebs for anyone’s special occasion!

    Outdoor seating was on the porch so there was traffic noise. The food was good, but for the price, other upscale restaurants I've been to are better.
