I was disappointed in the food. I had the Spinach and Goat Stuffed Chicken Breast. The chicken was overcooked and very dry. Rather than stuffing the breast, it was 2 pieces of breast with a light slather of goat cheese/spinach mixture. The whole dish was swimming in a maple broth that became sickly sweet after a while. The Shrimp & Grits suffered from the same cooking issues. Shrimp was significantly overcooked. The "hummus' was a creamy macadamia mixture that didn't resemble humus in any way. Pricing was very high, especially for such poorly executed food. It's a shame because the ambiance and service were really good.

Look if you’re a service person, don’t go here. I’ve been in the industry for a while now. And these servers are duds.
Seriously. You can look around and try and catch someone’s attention and they’ll look at you and walk away.
Other than that brunch is pretty amazing.
If you don’t care about the service then come here.
I really don’t care because it’s their tip not mine.

I was very happy to see the Paleo and gluten free items on the menu, and attention to healthy ingredients. It was pretty loud, which made it hard to hear. We were from out of town, and wanted to visit with our Dallas neice, so that was challenging. Also, the wait for the food (waffles and sandwich and bowl) was extraordinarily long. We enjoyed our visit, but were really getting hungry after about 40 minutes. I would go again, to try some of the unusual items on the menu.

Great food. Great service. Menu was paleo-friendly (I'm not paleo, but I appreciated more veggies as sides rather than so many of the typical starchy sides). The only thing that wasn't great were their cocktails, which had potential (clear thought into the menu), but weren't as good as everything else on the menu.

Great healthy food dining. Creative mixed drinks. Helpful, friendly service.

All the appetizers and specials were fantastic. Every dish was prepared from scratch in the open kitchen. Save room and time for the warm deserts. They were as good as the entrees!

Hope to be back soon.

I LOVE origin. I’ve been here for brunch/lunch/dinner/drinks on multiple occasions. All the bartenders/cooks/waiters are super nice and know about the menu and cocktails. Everything is fresh and made so well. I always keep coming back. Sometimes I want to go outside my comfort zone and try a new place, but Origin brings me back always and NEVER disappoints

We had a Sunday lunch. We all ended up ordering breakfast. The menu was varied with a lot of healthy options. They had a good kids menu.
The food arrived promptly and was delicious. Our waiter was courteous and friendly. Service was excellent.
I will definitely go again.

Honestly, I’ve been finding fabulous restaurants on open table for years. I look at ratings and reviews. I look at the interior and the menu and especially the ratings...this was absolutely the worst experience in YEARS.
First of all, I made it clear that this was a special occasion and it was NEVER recognized. The restaurant looked so much different in the photo, The wait staff told us the food was great and everything was wonderful....we all disliked our food so much that it could’ve ruined our evening, but we had so many things to talk about that we found solace in that.
So, the food....I ordered one of my favorite dishes...when made correctly Osso bucco is succulent pieces of pork that falls off the bone in a rich; abundantly colored sauce made from wine, mushrooms and seasoning....this was dry, the vegetables were aldente and there was no flavor.
My son ordered spinach/ricotta stuffed chicken breast. That, looked like 2pieces of cardboard with a sauce. He eats everything(usually) and didn’t eat this.
My husband had “fried chicken”. When it arrived at the table, I wondered what the heck it was. It didn’t look like(or apparently tasted like fried chicken) Maybe there is a hidden reason to this place, but it is not good food. The only thing that I ate was a salad that was lovely mixed greens with a very acidic vinaigrette.
I think what amazed us was that the restaurant was full, but nobody looked ecstatic.....hmmmmm

Great selection of non meat options even though lots of paleo-type dishes. Lots of gluten-free options too. Thai salmon was delicious and lots of yummy vegetables. Both hash dishes look great too.

We were greeted warmly by host, Chris, and given our choice of seating as we were the start of dinner time. Our server René was super attentive but in a laid back non-intrusive way. The food was amazing, ( halibut and stuffed chicken breast, brussel sprouts and sweet potato hash) the music was great, the service was impeccable. They even treated us to dessert ( chocolate mousse, yum) in honor of my husband’s birthday, that we were celebrating. A perfect evening . We will definitely be back.

Wanted to like this restaurant because of the good reviews but the wait was too long. We came in for brunch on a Sunday. After waiting 15 minutes after our reservation to be sat down, we had to haul down a waiter from a different section to order because our waiter was no where to be found. The coffees took forever (simple black American coffee they pour from a large jar), the food took even longer. Restaurant was half empty. Our waiter (who was not supposed to wait on our table) was very nice, we didn't walk out because of him. Food was okay - pretty bland.
