The restaurant looks very trendy. The service was a bit slow and the patio chairs were not that comfortable. The food was good but nothing outstanding. Did like the fact that it's away from the traffic and parking while the parking still is convenient.

I started night at bar. Service was good and drinks excellent. My dining experience was completely different. The waitress was no where to be found as we diner had to wav her down whenever we needed a drink. The sale I ordered came out with a big black hair on it so had to send back. The onion rings on sale were not edible because there was so much salt on them. Would not go back here to dine only hang out at bar.

Hi John, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience at City Works. That is definitely NOT typical of the level of quality and service we aspire to. The hair in the food is completely unacceptable. I will speak with our management team and let them know about this so they can provide additional training and support where necessary. Thank you for leaving your feedback. - Staley

Probably wouldn't go again. Wasn't terrible but I've had better micro-chain-type food in the area (Iron Hill). Service was slow to be not crowded on a Sunday around 12. Food was decent but pretty greasy/heavy. Side salad with a burger was super small. Didn't really get drink refills. May be a better place if you're going to have drinks and not just enjoy some company.

Good was mediocre; My dining partner’s Chile was uninspired - while spicy, it was bland in terms of traditional Chile flavor. Also never a good sign to see pooled grease/oil in an entree. Our server offered a replacement which was far better (tomato basil soup.) my chopped salad with barbecue chicken was equally bland and uninteresting.

Our server, Sarah, could not have been more pleasant and accommodating- and quick to offer a solution to my guest’s unhappiness with his original entree choice. Hire more Sarahs.

The big doors were open allowing fresh air into the establishment, nice considering the its still early spring. I ordered the hot pepper burger. The burger's heat was mild to me, the flavor was ok. I did not like the jam that came on the burger, I do not like sweet taste with my burgers I found out. Other people may in fact like this.
The fries were really good, we had the eggrolls that were good as well. My friend loved the pretzel bites, I thought they were decent but nothing special and the cheese sauce was just ok. It had a decent atmosphere.
there were three of us, two appetizers, two alcoholic drinks and two non-alcoholic drinks. We ordered three entrees and the bill came to $80.00. So price is about two $$...
Everything was ok, the server was cheerful and took care of us. The atmosphere was decent with a medium volume.

We were there for two and a half hours, our server ignored us after getting our order, neglected to check for refills, and I waited 30 mins to pay... the restaurant wasn’t even full... it’s a shame bc I’m not sure I’ll go back but the food is outstanding.
