We had a great meal and the service was flawless. It is crowded and loud, but all that is part of the experience I suppose. Overall, we enjoyed it very much.

Knowledgeable wait staff - recommend Open Table for reservations as Old Ebbit is a popular choice.

My partner had the ham/spinach tortilla wrap with sauce and she couldn’t eat it because it had so much salt. She wasted 75 percent.My fish and chips were great. The third person had the fillet and had to remove the top due to so much cracked pepper.

Valentine’s day dinner: the hosts seemed to finish with the previous patron and then stop to joke around for a minute before turning to continue helping me.
Otherwise the food was quite good and the place was very nice
