Sat outside tonight for a nice dinner. It was dark so our server Chloé gave us some candles which was nice. The food was delicious but I find that my salmon is never cooked the way I want. Everything else was cooked to perfection.

I recently made a dinner reservation to come here with some friends and let me tell you, the food is fantastic! Make sure to ask for Clayton, he is a great server! I usually have a hard time deciding what to eat, so he gave me some very excellent suggestions and was very attentive! I especially enjoyed the Ahi Tuna Tartare, but everything I ate was very delicious. I'm definitely coming back again! 😋

We sat outside and it was nice to be able to get a table. At the same time, the table surface was very uneven, looked a bit dirty, and overall lacked any ambiance whatsoever. Food was decent, nothing to write home about, and average cost per head was about $25 which for lunch seems expensive. The hostess and waitress did a nice job, and had the per-meal cost been $15 I'd probably feel like it was a really good deal.

We came in and sat at the bar and were greeted by Tyron. He was very entertaining and made a great drink. We sampled a new drink they’re adding to the menu and it was yummy!
Then we went to the back dining area for dinner. Again we tried the special at our servers suggestion and were not let down. The lobster crab cakes were delicious. Our server, Carol only made our experience better with her menu knowledge and attention to detail. Keep doing a good job 220! Good food and drink, excellent service!

This is my girlfriends favorite spot so we made reservations for her birthday. Since we come here often, I called ahead to see if our normal server Chloe maybe could do anything to make her day extra special. She did not disappoint. When we arrived, she set the table up with fresh rose petals and candles and finished the night off with a surprise cotton candy and lava cake with a sparkler. My girlfriend started crying. Thank you 220 and Chloe for an amazing evening going above and beyond for your guest.

Had an awesome experience at 220... as I do every time. Server, Mia, had extensive knowledge about the menu and a terrific personality. My B.Y.O. salad came out in great time and to my exact specification. I will continue to come to this great location for lunch as it hits the mark in everything you would want for a perfect dining experience!

220 is an outstanding restaurant. Service, staff, food all amazing. Came here for a private event with our firm, our servers Chloe and Wayne were outstanding and worked fluid and efficiently together. Drinks were flowing and never a dull moment in the room. Thank you for a wonderful evening out of the office. Looking forward to bringing the partners back for happy hour!

I really enjoy 220 Merrill every time I go there. I usually go for a business meeting either lunch or dinner. My out of town guests (usually European) really seem to enjoy the place also. This time my service was not as good as it has been in the past but that is being a little nit picky.

Love this place but it was definitely an off-night. Service by Wayne was excellent but the food was off. New changes were made to the menu and some of the food was really disappointing. I've had plenty of great experiences before so I hoping it's a rare off-night.

Service was less than adequate. The brunch buffet was not good. The French toast was raw still and a hair was found in the potatoes / eggs. When I notified a staff member it took over 10 minutes for it to be removed from the buffet and other patrons took from it. It should have been removed as soon as it was reported.

We had a great time and meal. The only issue is when you sit outside on the patio, all the way to the left when facing the restaurant, there is a noise tunnel there so you can hear all the tables around you and when the table next to us and sat down, they were very loud and it was amplified because of where we were sitting. Food and service were excellent though!

I have dined at 220 on many occasions, but this may be my last. Sat in front dining room. Tables on top of each other. Waitress did not offer specials. (Heard them from waiter 2 tables down). Wife ordered salmon. Vegetables and sauce served cold. Had to ask busser to find waitress. Sent back. I finished my dinner while wife waited. Came back with reheated vegetables and same fish which was now fish jerky. No apology from manager or offer to make amends for problem. I had to wait an excessive time for drink refill. We decided to have dessert elsewhere. Very disappointed.

Food and service were perfect.

All of the staff were friendly and welcoming. Chloe, our main server, was such a doll! She was attentive, charismatic, and ensured we had the best experience she could offer.

William the sommelier, was friendly and provided a lot of insight about the wine and the pairings he would recommend. He was very knowledgeable and charming.

The service was individualized and designed to make everyone feel special. We never felt rushed or out of place. It did get busy towards the later hours, but what do you expect with a buzzing restaurant like 220.

Best meal we've had in a long time. The food and service were exceptional. Look forward to having feature events here!
