Such great food! There was no coffee or alcohol available, which was a bummer, but we still really enjoyed our meal.

The service was abysmal. We specifically asked for our entree to be brought last, and it was brought before our drinks, which took more than 25 minutes. Our server forgot about our appetizers, which took another 45 minutes, and only one came. The item we asked for first came 1.5 hours after sitting down, and it took half an hour to get our check. On top of this, the bill included an 18% service fee which felt like a slap in the face, as we would have left, at most, 5%. We won't be returning.

Amazing amazing food and very sweet wait staff. When we were there, I’m not kidding, there was FOUR different birthdays being celebrated, so I think it’s a favorite spot for a lot of different people. Delicious.

We went during brunch and had the honeycomb Cheeseboat and French toast. Both were delish and quite filling. Great food and service!

Great place for a date! Went for Valentine’s Day and had a wonderful time! We had the Brie and walnut cheeseboat which was ridiculously good. We also had the mushroom soups dumplings but were thrown off when there were beef dumplings mixed in (we weren’t eating meat that night and the menu listing didn’t mention meat dumplings coming with the mushroom dumplings). Also split a great bottle of wine. Service was just ok, server only stopped to take our order and bring our food but then kind of forgot about us. A bit overpriced but we enjoyed our time.

Made reservations there yesterday for 330pm. I get there for them to tell me that they were closed till 5pm because their kitchen was 'messed up' at the moment. Yet I saw servers still bringing food to tables. No call or email to tell me about their kitchen issues... They wanted me to stay there waiting till 5pm for the kitchen to be "back up"? No thanks.

As aslways, the food did not disappoint. Delicious as always. We had the classic Cheeseboat, truffle potato purée, stuffed grape leaves, and soup dumplings. We arrived later in the evening (an hour before kitchen closing, so not too late) and felt forgotten about even though we were some of the only people in the restaurant. In fact, our server forgot one of our dishes even though he repeated it back to us 4 times. The other server said he would take care of the forgotten item, but when the check came it was still there. Service was extremely disappointing.

I really enjoyed Cheesboat! The staff was accommodating and our waiter was very friendly and gave us good recommendations. The food was delicious too. I'll definitely be returning to try some more of their cheeseboats (the honey brie sounded AMAZING).

The food here was really delicious and unique, I would love to eat it again. However, the service was really disappointing and even though I’m not one to be picky over service, both me and the person I was eating with couldn’t help but be upset over it. Next time I will probably just get my food to go.

We saw this place while we were driving by one day and learned that it was Georgian cuisine. The restaurant had a nice ambience with a simple menu but the food was absolutely delicious and a great value. Definitely recommend trying them out.

We tried their basic cheeseboat. It has nothing to do with a Georgian one except the shape, the cheese is wrong! The taste was ok though. Also khinkali... They didn't meet any expectations unfortunately. The staff was quite nice though but they charge extra percentage for paying by your credit card

The food is amazing, as well as the drinks. However, they had these really harsh, bright ceiling fan lights on that clashed with the ambiance they were going for.

While the food was delicious (I mean what could not be delicious about bread and cheese? - worlds best combo), but it took forever to get served, get the check, etc and the place was mostly empty

Cheeseboat was really good. My only regret was ordering french fries because they just seemed like frozen fries. The cheese boat was tasty enough and large enough to fill two stomachs.

Reservation was for 5 pm, when we showed up they were still closed, tried calling no one would pick up the phone, came back at 6 pm they were still closed. The waitress came over to the door unlocked it rolled her eyes and walked away. Ended up going somewhere else. Their own website says they open at 5 and I was able to make a reservation for 5 not sure what the problem was.

The only good thing about our dinner was the service. It was welcoming and quick. BUT the food... First, this place is not authentic Georgian. If you go there, please, don’t think that’s actually Georgian cuisine. I might sound brutal, but it was the worst Georgian food I ever had. Also, the choices are extremely limited. They don’t have some of the most famous tastiest Georgian dishes. Second, the cheeseboat and khachapuri - they make them almost identical, except you have variation of toppings for cheeseboats. It’s basically a TON of CHEAP TASTELESS PLASTIC cheese baked into bread. And no, it’s not khachapuri. I guess it’s just another place that did a successful social media campaign.
