We went there for my wife’s bday and we had a wonderful time. The food was great and the cocktails even better. The service was spot on and the ambiance couldn’t be any better. The bill came and we were pleasantly surprised because it was not expensive at all. Can’t wait to go back

Another great dinner here at 618. Was celebrating my birthday. Food is simply delicious. We shared Granny’s meatballs and a special bruschetta. I had a grouper special. Just wonderful. We didn’t want dessert but Nicole brought out a cup with ice cream and whipped cream topped with a sparkler. All decorated. It was so thoughtful. Nicole was an outstanding server. This place is wonderful and a must go to.

This was the 4th or 5th time we have been to 618 and we don’t have a single negative. Everything was perfect. We were greeted upon arrival. Led to our seats which was socially distanced from any other table. Our waitress, Toni Ann immediately greeted us and let us know the specials for the night. Everything we ate from appetizers to desserts was delicious. Cooked to perfection. We are celebrating a birthday and the dessert had a sparkling candle in it. We could not have asked for a better dinner and we will go there again for next celebration.

The dinner was perfect. We had a group of 11 ladies for a birthday dinner. Food was so delicious. We all cleaned up our plates. Rick was our waiter. From the moment I walked in he made sure to take care of everything till the very end. He was on point with service and very polite and made sure to make the night extra special for us. We ate upstairs which was so beautiful. Great ambience! It turned out to be a great night! Definitely looking forward to going again and again.

Rough night. Made reservation and was greeted with “ if you want to sit inside, it will be at least 25 minutes” Ok, we can sit wherever. Were told they have heaters. The one by our table did not work.
Wait staff was not familiar. We dine here every two weeks and it appeared to be a whole new staff from reception to servers. It was a Friday , so perhaps people were off.
Waiter , when asked if I could substitute the rice on my entree for potatoes, snapped that he may charge me for a side. I stated that I always have made this substitution with no issue before. Asked for the halibut special to be cooked a little more well done. It came out with zero garnish and it was the smallest piece of halibut ever. Halibut a thick fish . This one looked like a frozen trout filet. $36 bucks.
Ordered a to go meal as well, which came with nothing but a small short rib and a scoop of mashed potatoes. 30 bucks.
Dropped 200 on three meals and three drinks.
Hopefully this was just an off night and not the new normal. We dine out three times per week and support our local restaurants. If your going to raise your prices, at least keep the service and food acceptable.

First time here, overall the food was very good. Crab cake app was excellent but small, butternut squash ravioli app was good but on the bland side, halibut special was perfectly cooked but the haricovert/green beans were pretty much raw. Hubby enjoyed his short ribs over mashed potatoes. Mini ice cream cookie sandwiches for dessert were good but would be better with a true vanilla bean ice cream. I appreciated that they remembered it was my husband’s birthday & put a fun sparkler candle in it. The courses come out very quickly so we felt a bit rushed but all in all, it was a good meal so we’ll give it another try.

Beautiful space. The staff is so friendly. It was a super busy Saturday night and they still were able to seat us early for our reservation.
The service was first class. The food is amazing. Really inventive menu. Cocktails were on point. From top to bottom a fantastic experience. Cannot wait to go back again and try something else

Had another great experience on Saturday night. Our service was outstanding, as Rick was extremely attentive and made some great recommendations. Had the Angry Shrimp, which was just the right amount spicy, with homemade pasta. The drinks were top notch. We both had the Blood Orange jalapeno Margarita. Awesome. Overall, a great place to eat & drink.

The BEST restaurant in the area! Staff is always incredible and the food is consistently outstanding. The new outdoor seating area was delightful. The ambiance of the restaurant made you forget about the current situation and just enjoy being out to dinner again. Everything was clean. Spacing inside was more than to be expected. Can’t wait to go back again, and again, and again !!

Another delicious meal! I was raving about the Cabernet Short Ribs, and Pork Chop to my son and he came to visit from college this past weekend just to go to 618. Whatever it takes to have them come home, right? He loved it and so did we. Thanks also to our great server Julia. She's the best.
