    This restaurant needs to take about 20 percent fewer diners at current staffing levels. It was on the cusp of anarchy, with long intervals between server visits which led to strategic pre-ordering of drinks we knew wouldn’t come for 20 minutes. Food was good but the menu was limited and there were no specials. There are a lot of other places in town I’d go until this restaurant gets its act together. It’s got a great location and lots of potential, so I hope they can turn it around

    The food was great, maybe one of the best dinners-out I've had in years. The service was excellent, and the ambiance just fine. The only thing "wrong" was the music being played didn't fit the classy restaurant this is. Twice we had to ask the waiter to turn it down. No music at all would have been perfect.

    What a fantastic brunch we had. The wait staff was so attentive and very professional. We were having such a good time that we didn't realize it was an hour past their closing time and we never felt rushed to leave. The food is very good and the atmosphere really added to our wonderful experience. I highly recommend The Kreb's for those who want to have a relaxing meal and are not in a hurry.

    We ate brunch at the bar with Bernardo and everything was great. $22 carafe of bubbly with whatever juices you pick. Had the frittata and hash. If you can’t go here for a meal and love it you have problems!

    I was told we had to eat at Krebs while staying at Mirbeau for a girls Weekend. We had a reservation, but other parties were seated before us at better tables based on their complaining. We were in a corner, even though other tables were open and it was HOT in the area. We were sweating. We had to ask for water and bread. Two entrees were cold. We were expecting a much different experience.

    Dining at The Krebs was a delightful experience. It is beautifully decorated inside, the service was attentive and very friendly, the food was very good. Specifically the scrambled eggs with goat cheese and cremini mushrooms provided a very sizable portion. The prices were surprisingly low for such an upscale experience. I cannot wait to return!

    The Krebs has been our favorite restaurant. I made reservations ahead of time for an Anniversary dinner. Requested a table near bar. We had 5 pm reservations. Seated us in back of restaurant by kitchen and right next to waiters station. Not trying to be negative but was very disappointed. If they do not respond to requests on Open Table I’m not sure they care.

    The ambiance is top drawer!!! Beautiful inside and out. It was a busy night and everyone was hustling, even the owner. The drinks at the bar were good but they were so busy, service was very slow and people were getting irritated. We started with oysters that were sub par. Servers were very inexperienced as is the case everywhere lately! Dinner took forever but was cooked perfectly and a generous portion. Overall, the service was the only caveat!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Krebs. The atmosphere and interior are beautiful and conducive to fine dining. Our waitress Jennifer Jones was the perfect combination of warm, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and creative. Desserts were excellent. A homemade lemon basil sorbet was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. My only regret is that I do not live closer as I would be a frequent diner. Kudos to the owners who donate their profits to women and children charities.

    The wait staff were amazing! They were very attentive and sociable. It was our 39th wedding anniversary and we were treated very well from the reservations desk to the wait staff to the bartender. Even the other guests were great to visit with and someone at the bar bought our drinks as they heard it was our anniversary. Thanks again!!!
