Restaurant was empty when we arrived. Service very slow. Took 10 min to get drunk order. Music so loud the waitress didn’t hear part of the order and by the time she came back to check on us after getting our food we were finished with what we had received. Ordered a flatbread pizza and the crust itself was greasy as if they deep fried it. First time visiting and won’t rush to go back.

There was no problem with the server. The problem was the entree! I ordered the fish & chips with the expectation of a cod filet that usually is a fair portion. To my surprise I receives 3 fish sticks the size of my finger. Really, this item should have been on the Bar Bites menu. Also there was barely 2 fork full of the coleslaw. That was a disappointing excuse of an entree.

No I will not recommend it until they fix the service problem. The servers and hostess are slow and not very friendly. Not to mention we had reservations at 630 and we go there early and would not seat us. The service has been the same since it opened and as not improved. I have been there 3 times and it is the same. I will not go back.

City Works checks all the boxes. We were especially surprised by the restaurant's wide-open feel.

I made reservations online and the earliest time I could get was 11:30. When we arrived, the restaurant was empty. They had no explanation as to why I could not get an earlier reservation except to say that the hours used to be 11:30 so maybe they weren't updated yet. The coffee that we ordered was lukewarm. I asked her to just microwave the cup for me but she said they did not have a microwave so they brewed a new pot. Brewing a new pot of coffee took a long time. The food took a very long time to come out and was cold when it finally came to the table. The manager came over and topped off our coffees and asked how everything was. We told her the food was cold. She did ask if she could remake it, but we waited so long for the order to come out originally, we weren't about to risk it. We weren't charged for our coffee but I don't know if that was compensation for the poor meal or a mistake. Every meal can't be a winner, but when you are only waiting on one table, you'd expect service to be exceptional, which it was not. She should have involved the manager if the kitchen staff was the problem.

This is the second time at City Works. The food is decent, nothing great but good. A couple things we observed both time visiting: 1. Our server seemed very uninterested, not only for us but pretty much for all tables. 2. The drinks are ok but seem way overpriced for what you get. These are not "crafted" cocktails. 3. The food came out in less than 5 mins of ordering - that means either the kitchen staff is blazing fast or that the food is pre-prepared in back - which if that's the case the pricing is way off. Probably won't be back - which is a shame because of its close proximity to the movie theater.

Food was good. The cons were that it took over 35 minutes for us to get our food when the restaurant was 1/4 full and our server was not very attentive.

The food was very good, and the patio was nice. Service was a little slow, and the music was so loud that we asked our server three times to get it turned down as it was hard to have a conversation without shouting. It finally did get lowered, but why was it so loud in the first place? Nobody I know wants to have to ask their friends across the table constantly to repeat themselves. We will go less frequently because of this experience.

I’d recommend with qualifications. Music was way too loud. TV screens on one entire wall we’re basically useless. There was nothing on any of them of any interest. Not even a local sports event. Food was good although the menu is rather limited. Service was good but the restaurant wasn’t very busy when we were there.

We arrived early, while waiting for our whole party to get there we spent time at the bar where we had a wonderful time experiencing beer tasting and the bartender was marvelous. Then we were shown our table where we had just the best most attentive waitress for our daughter's birthday dinner. The food was great, the service was the best and the beverages amazing. We highly recommend City Works and will visit them again shortly!

I went to City Works with my husband, mother in law and three babies (all under 16 months). The staff was amenable, and our waiter was very nice. Food was OUTSTANDING. Especially considering we were just out and made this reservation last minute. We would totally come back! Highly recommended.

We had a very positive experience at City Works on Saturday , August 3rd. Our server was pleasant and attentive. I had the BBQ chopped chicken salad and it was delicious! My husband had the bacon cheeseburger and fries which he really enjoyed. He requested his burger to be cooked medium and it was perfect. They have a large selection of craft beers which is a big plus for me. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

This was about our third or fourth visit. I had the cauliflower steak. It wasn’t as good as the first time I had it. The cauliflower was really tough. The arugula on it was tasty though. My husband enjoyed the clam chowder, but his side salad was so chopped it was hard to eat. Friends had the burger and chicken sandwich with no complaints. Server was a little distracted and not that attentive. Will probably still go back because there is plenty of seating and a good American menu.

Found a huge hair in my salad and the manager questioned me asking me where it was and gave me a hard time. It completely ruined my appetite and they didn’t compensate me whatsoever. Took them 25min to bring me another one, on a day that wasn’t busy. Wouldn’t recommend that place to anyone . - Also their beer is massively overpriced small portion sizes

The service was very slow for lunch.
They made my salad wrong the first time and left out something the second time.
The salad was good however the small amount of veggies in the salad was unenjoyable. They are chopped up so small which makes it look like more. Definitely not worth the money.

Great new facility, good for beer lovers. Bad for wine drinkers. Service was not great. Tons of people and time, just not friendly nor team oriented. Food was average bar food. Beer offerings looked above average. Only one wine offering per type and don't sell full bottles. Has potential but we had one so so experience.
