the restaurant needs to update their menu...

It was also FREEZING at our table.

we had an 815p reservation....the host never told us that we were going to receive a text. We were told to wait at the bar and when our table was ready, they would come get us. 820pm, I went to check on the table and I had been notified by text 20 minutes earlier that our table was available. Why didn't they come to get us?

Food and service were outstanding as always, but the back room tends to be noisy because that's where they put the larger groups. A room in the main dining area is definitely preferred.

618 is always a solid meal and the service is good. The food is a consistent 4 stars, with the occasional 3 or 5 star plate. I got the cod this time. Very good and the dumplings that accompany it were tasty, as well. The specialty drinks here are creative and taste good, but the prices are a little crazy. $14 dollars for a margarita isn’t too uncommon, but the highball glass they put it in was tiny and, even in that little glass, they only filled it about 65-70%. A rip.

Mostly average to good. The tuna poke appetizer was okay. Scallops were over cooked, average. The stuffed mushrooms appetizer was pretty good. And I tasted the parpadella bolognese, also good. Noise level was high, at least on a Friday night, which I guess is to be expected. But there was a wedding upstairs and you could hear the dance floor music through the ceiling. Not the ideal setting for an intimate dinner or much conversation. We couldn’t hear each other talk. Good for large groups and parties though.

Our Easter dinner at 618 was amazing! Our Server Danielle was so sweet and helpful. we loved all her recommendations. Our host told us about the scallop special and she was right...it was so good! We also loved the skirt steak and bruschetta. I've been dying to come here and was not disappointed. The sticky toffee dessert was delicious. I was concerned that we would be rushed since it was a holiday but we were pleasantly surprised. And on our way out we were given two gift cards! So awesome!!

We had reservations on one of the busiest days of the year, when all staff have the potential to be maxed out. Everything was fabulous. We were greeted warmly upon arriving. I had to make a last-minute change in the number of people dining, and they handled it with grace. The server never made us feel rushed. The menu choices were varied and interesting. Everything we ordered was delicious. The room is a little live sound-wise, but it's a beautiful space. I highly recommend dining here. We will be back.

My husband and I went for our Anniversary. It was our first time there and it won’t be our last. Waitress was wonderful, the food delicious and when it came time for dessert we had to run because of a family matter and they were so nice and just pack everything up for us. Definitely will be going back and recommend this restaurant to others.

I love this restaurant. Haven't been there in a while but I can say it hasn't lost its ability to produce excellent meals. The wait staff is always friendly, helpful and professional. The noise level is a bit much if you want to have a quiet conversation, that is about as negative as I can get with this place. Always great!
