Everyone was very kind and helpful. The drinks were amazing. The sea bass was the best fish I have eaten in a while. I also love the calamari small plate. Overall, it was great for a special night out. A little expensive for an ordinary date, but worth the splurge for a fancy treat or celebration.

The sophisticated style is lovely, tables are spaced well-apart and table settings, china and silver distinctive. Service is very professional. It is pricy but to be expected with seafood. The appetizers we had were good although portion sizes odd. The brussels app was more than enough for four and the duck app too small for two. The only disappointment was the squid ink pasta which two of us ordered. The good-sized portion was watery and tasteless. It appeared to contain quite a bit of shredded crab but the chopped onion overpowered the crab. It had two scallops and two shrimp that I could see. Don't order it. Our friends enjoyed their fish entree which they split. Overall, it was a good experience except for the pasta.

Everything was great 😌 except the price. We felt they’re a lil pricey and that’s the reason we gave 3 star ⭐️ and a 5 star ⭐️ for everything else.

Service was ok. The server didn’t bring out champagne and mimosas until we received our food. We asked several times about the drinks but each time she said they were coming and she forgot. She seemed like she was having a bad day cause she couldn’t remember anything.

There are much better seafood places. Lobster fries were nasty and not fresh at all. I had high hopes but very disappointed

Waited 20 minutes for water. Another 10 for drinks. Appetizer came 30 minutes later and was cold. Main course took an hour to come from the time we placed our order with the waitress. When it finally arrived, it was cold as well.

Loved the location in an old home with private spaces/rooms. The waitress was very helpful and they were able to accommodate dietary restrictions easily. The drinks were expertly prepared, and the food was plentiful and delicious! Bummer was that we had no room left for dessert. Can't wait to return!

Server was not that well versed about the food options. I do think the cost of one mimosa ( basic champagne) at 13.00 is excess. I would have bought a carafe as I asked what other options were available and he wasn’t confident in the answer nor was he willing to find out the answer. The lobster omelette and the other breakfast options were really good. We had to ask for bigger plates to eat the family style food. We given a saucer as the other people next to us. Shrimp and grits are no go. A Huge bowl of grits with a light amount of sauce and shrimp. Maybe take out half of the amount of grits to accommodate the sauce and shrimp offered. Will go back again, I enjoyed everything else.

Our daughter decided to join us, and they made accommodations immediately. What a fantastic experience overall. The food was extraordinary, the service was tremendous, and the vibe of seeing a Black owned business thriving was a breath of fresh air. We will make sure to visit during dinner in the near future as well.

Everything was so nice - the ambiance, service and food! While the pp cost was somewhat steep for a non/buffet brunch, I thought it was worth it. The 4 “starters” served family style were fantastic, though my 18 year old son was wishing he could have a couple more pieces of bacon and bites of steak! The potatos and cinnamon french toast sticks were also fantastic! I really enjoyed my shrimp n grits main course, and my husband loved his crab cake sandwich on croussant! Our waiter took great care of us, and we can hardly wait to return for dinner!

The servers were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. This restaurant was a random find on Open Table for me so I went with no expectations and was thoroughly happy with the entire experience.

The restaurant looked really nice and seating was comfortable. The young lady who brought us water was really sweet. We waited for 15 minutes for our server. When she came over she apologized and said that she was working an event. We went ahead and placed our entire order as we had ample time to look over the menu. One of the items we ordered she said was “hot” and asked what else we wanted it they didn’t have anymore. One of the tables around us had their drinks but hadn’t ordered dinner and she stopped on the way to put our order in to take their order and to answer all of their questions. By this time we were twenty minutes into our dinner date and didn’t have anything yet besides water. We decided to leave because we didn’t want to have to continue to have long wait times for everything. We felt like an after thought. It would have been different if someone came over and let us know that our server was busy with an event and they she would be over to us when she was able to or had another server who was working the area get us started and take our drink order while we waited on our server. When we left we explained to the hostess what was going on and she said “ sorry”. We understand that it was a Saturday night but a little communication goes a long way. We were really looking forward to dinner at Bait but I doubt we will be back.
