Outstanding restaurant, excellent menu of approachable selections with just enough variation to be interesting. Everything perfectly prepared. Friendly, attentive service. The only down side is that it's a little noisy for my taste, but not enough to keep us away. 618 has become our first choice for family celebration dinners.

We were early for a reservation but we’re promptly seated. We were asked if the bar area was okay and we were pleasantly surprised. Few restaurants have a bar area that we would want to sit in. 618 is up there. Very little noise and a very nice experience. Our waitress, Tiffany, was very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions on the menu. We had the shrimp and grits appetizer as well as the meatballs. Both were very good, especially the shrimp and grits. Our dinners were delicious as well, angry shrimp, pappardelle Bolognese and halibut from the specials menu. The manager Danielle stopped by to check on us and was delightful. Wished we lived closer to 618, it would be on our regular rotation. Excellent all around!

Wonderful greeting and prompt seating. A cozy weekday evening in the large dining room with a fireplace and a few other occupied tables. Our server was great, knew the menu and really worked with us to help make the right choices. Pork belly and salad apps with Cajun shrimp and grits and a grilled pork chop entree were all delicious, served quickly and still very hot. Rice pudding bruele and gelato were terrific dessserts. Very good all the way around....setting, service, food. Can’t wait for the next visit to 618!

Made a reservation for lunch on open table… Not sure if I missed something on the website but I was not aware that we would be seated in the bar/lounge for lunch. I was hoping for a dining room vibe rather than TVs on while we dined.

The meal was excellent-fresh good, great flavors & nice presentation. Attentive & friendly staff.... I would definitely come back again

This was our first visit to 618 and we will definitely go back. When we arrived there was a large party celebrating a child's birthday and the noise level was pretty unbearable. But they eventually departed which enhanced our experience. Our server was very accommodating and efficient, and our food was exceptional. Of four diners, we had three different entrees and all were delicious and presented nicely. The wines by the glass seemed priced rather high, but the house wine was priced comfortably and tasted fine. My husband and I opted to share a salad and our server was kind enough to split it for us without our asking. The portion was ample, the ingredients fresh, and the dressing taste and amount was perfect. A manager presented us with a gift card to thank us for visiting and to encourage us to return within a month. We will!

We’ve been to 618 a few times for dinner, wedding and apps at the bar. Food was consistently good and the staff is great. This past visit we had Matt as our server and he was attentive and friendly. I had an excellent pork chop and the Mac and cheese is one of my favorites. The only challenge here is parking but they do have an overflow lot next door. I watched a lot of restaurants come and go here, it’s nice to finally see one that looks like it will stick around.

The occasion was my twins 18th birthday, so starting with the perfect name 618, the most amazing crab cakes, Mac and cheese, meatballs for starters, the steaks were all phenomenal, salmon was awesome and desserts with sparklers for both of my kids made the occasion perfect. Our server was beyond professional, never an empty water glass, not a crumb to be found on the table. On a scale of 1-10, 618 gets a high 12! Thank you for the memorable occasion and making everything special!

Birthday dinner and it was delicious! The appetizers were plenty to share. The lobster ravioli, short rib, and shrimp and grits were to die for. We brought a birthday cake and 618 did not charge a fee to serve. Thank you for a great dinner!

How did I not go here before last night? Everything about 618 is top notch including our server Justine. She was friendly, knowledgeable and beyond efficient. Our salads came from local greenhouse and my green goddess dressing was perfect in taste and consistency. I had the mongolian cod with edamame dumplings! When did you see that on a menu last?? My husband had the most succulent pork chop with farro. Found out they got it so moist and tender by brining it. Great wine selection and I am picky about that! Not just your cliche names but boutique wineries I find to be more unique and special. The atmosphere was warm and cozy and did I mention the bread is excellent? That is how I first judge a restaurant, if they bring me lousy doughy bread it's all over. Their bread has a nice crust and homemade taste with just a touch of sea salt. This is on the top of my list, it did not disappoint in any aspect.

Amazing food and service. Could not ask for a better experience in celebrating my husbands birthday belatedly. With food allergies and food restrictions among the three of us, we had no ussues finding something we could all enjoy. I had the cabernet braised beef short ribs; my husband had the blackberry fig glazed pork chop and my daughter the roast chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection. Great wine list too. Dessert was a surprise! They added a great sparkler to my husbands gelato. Cannot say enough good things. We will be back!

The service was amazing. Jacqueline was our waitress. The food was outstanding. The pork belly is highly recommended. The blue cheese olives in the martini's were great. chimichurri steak is a must. It was our first and will not be our last. Picked this restaurant because of the reviews and it clearly explains why.
