    Appetizers were good but 2 of the main dishes were made with too much chopped garlic, they did not have 2 items on their menu, waitress was horrible, presented herself like she didn’t want to be there, she brought out wrong drinks and parts of an dinner order, never once came over to fill up water, after telling her the drink was wrong she said she’ll take it off the bill, when the bill came the drink was still on the bill, when I asked about the drink on the bill she then says she can’t and says I’m new and walks away. Would never recommend after our experience there.

    I had a wonderful experience at Chapter One for lunch with a good friend. The service was terrific and even as we lingered over coffee (as we hadn’t seen each other for a long time) we never felt rushed. I had the arugula salad with grilled chicken which was delicious. My friend really enjoyed the French onion soup and caprese salad. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch with family and or friends.

    Our waitress was good and the ny strip meal was very good. Our calamari app was heavy on the peppers and light on the actual calamari. However, I liked how it was made…crunchy. The clam chowder was very good too. But, we sat on the long booth like side. My girlfriend was sitting up higher than she liked above me in a regular seat. She also felt cold air on her neck as she sat with her back to the window. These points are the reason for my average rating.

    We had reservations at 7 pm. It was a full house. Our waitress informed us before we were finished that we had to pay our tab because she had to get to another job. For the price, the food was mediocre & the service was terrible.
