Always enjoy eating here. Great service and food.
Awesome service, good food, and great beer selection!
The table was for 5 co-workers, one of which was retiring. That was our special occasion. We all loved the food and the atmosphere. The restaurant is bright and cheerful with lots of windows to people watch. The service was very good. We had no complaints.
Our waitress was excellent. Large beer selection, however the food was just okay at best, and a bit on the expensive side. If we go back, it will just be for the beer.
It was as expected.
Great food. Amazing server named Stasha. Awesome atmosphere. Would definitely come back.
I'll start with the positive...we thought the food, environment, and our waitress was great.
Not positive: the brown-haired hostess with long hair wearing red glasses who sat us on Sunday, March 4 at 1:45 pm. We had a reservation, showed up on time, and was asked if we were OK with a 2-person booth, which was fine with us. She then proceeds to take us to the booth closest to the front door. When we said that we didn't want to sit there, it was a non-negotiable, because their servers were "changing shifts." The restaurant was probably 10% full, see picture, and there were multiple open tables 5 feet from us. I literally told her that I was going to write a lousy review about her, which didn't seem to phase her, so here it is...
Wait staff was excellent and knowledgeable about the menu. Extremely helpful and bright. Food was delicious. Slightly higher price range and the noise was a bit high during peak hours, but all very manageable.
Good dining experience.
Cool place for a modern crowd. Loud and energetic with a great beer selection.
It is VERY loud in there! Service was okay, food was pretty decent. They have an extensive draft list but seemed to be out of a lot of selections. The experience was okay, but not amazing.
We enjoyed the food and the service was outstanding! High energy atmosphere to enjoy with friends, not a “special” place for a “special” event like an anniversary.
We had an amazing dinner
Our waiter knew menu and gave us great recommendations!
Been there twice now
Definitely going back!!!
The brunch (poached egg, shredded pork, hollandaise, english muffin) item is disdainful. I have a picture of the meal that is worth a thousand words and would do this review more justice than my words, but for some odd reason using the app, I can’t load the pic. I’ll try again later.
They literally brought my colleague and I the wrong food items -three out of the four items we received were wrong. The manager did comp our meal but it was shocking to suffer so many errors at one table.
City Works has great food and outstanding service, but is a very loud space.
Great food and service.
The service and food were excellent as always!!! I would definitely recommend.
We watched the Super Bowl and had fantastic seats, great food and service. We plan to watch games there in the future.
First time eating here, though I’ve stopped in for a beer. No beer for this meal, but there beer selection is fantastic.
Our lunch was incredible. HUGE portions and everything was perfectly cooked. Our server Meg was the best. Definitely in the rotation for lunch in the future. I’d imagine the dinners there are great as well.
Sadly it took forever get our food and when we did it still was not very good. Waitress tried very hard tho!
I love the buttermilk chicken sandwich, and my colleague's filet mignon sliders looked delicious as well.
Poor service shaded my review. Unattentive had to chase her down for everything. Long wait for initial drink order, appetizer, then of course entrees came within minutes of appetizer. Restaurant was out of one of the 2 dessert options on menu.
I have been at City Works a few times in the past, and have always had a great experience. I brought my son to celebrate his 22nd birthday. He was very impressed with the look and feel of the restaurant. It was down hill from there. After our orders were taken, we saw no one for at least 25 min. We had to flag down our waitress who said she really didn't know what was going on. Then left. Came back minutes later to say there was an issue with the mashed potatoes. Good finally came, no mashed potatoes, but corn based in conversation with the manager. The food was mediocre at best, service was worse. Not sure we will go out of our way to come back again. My son was home from school and we wanted to take him someplace nice for his birthday. The waitress said there was a new chef and things were a disaster. If she felt that way, imagine how we felt....sitting.....waiting.....disappointed.
Beautiful restaurant with great food and service. Beer variety was impressive.
Drinks were a little on the high side the pork chop and our server Joe were the best. The beef sliders were extremely fatty.( but they took them off the bill). Will go again!
Great beer selection and sporty atmosphere. Food was above average for a upscale sports bar (salads are not above average).
My 3rd visit and I brought family with me to celebrate a birthday. Service was good and everyone enjoyed their dinner! We brought cupcakes for dessert and they had no issues serving them. Go. Enjoy!
Great service. Wonderful food, meats smoked "in house". We were getting together with friends we hadn't seen in a while. I was worried it would be too loud to carry on a conversation, but that was not the case at all! For a downtown restaurant it was very spacious, the tables are not so crowded together that you feel like you are a part of the conversations going on around you. The bar area is large and comfortable as well. A large beer and wine selection helped too. Just an overall great place.
Be sure to make reservations. The place is very busy, and we had tried twice before without reservations to no avail. Service was excellent - and the food was delicious with generous portions. Lots of great choices for beer on tap.
Food was delicious & service was timely and friendly. Great experience!
It was so noisy that our server had a hard time hearing our orders. We were luck to be facing toward the windows and away from the massive wall of TV's, with is not what we wanted to look at on a Saturday evening. However, if you like to have a HUGE wall of televisions taking up all possible lines of site, you will like this place. We did thoroughly enjoy our meals.
I had the Duck Rueben and it was splendid. I also recommend the lobster fondue. Our waiter accommodated my request for a scoop of ice-cream to make myself a beer float for dessert.
Unfortunately, the noise level was almost oppressive. I may go back at a less busy time to avoid that and enjoy the food and beer list. The beer list was impressive.
The restaurant itself is really nice. The food is average. Huge beer selection. I have not been there in the summer, but think it would be nice since there are huge windows around the entire perimeter of the restaurant that they open. It is VERY noisy. Many TV's playing, horrible, loud music playing. The music would appeal to a select group of young people. My 23 year old nephew was with us and he didn't like the music.
I would recommend this to someone who appreciates being in an extremely loud restaurant where there are a lot of people. Due to the open air dining, I may try it again for lunch on the weekend in the summer; never again for dinner.
Very vibrant. Great location as part of Market Square. Great burgers (had the peppercorn). Young crowd. Casual and fun. Service was great.
Food, service and ambiance great! Will definitely be back!
The waitress was very nice and the beer was great!
DISGUSTING! The food was not even edible! Would not recommend this place to any human. Expensive bar food
Super belle place!! Je recommande a tous
This was our first time at the restaurant but had heard positive things from friends and family. Unfortunately for us it was a very busy night there and I assume that affected our service. Our waiter was friendly but seemed to be scattered. We got our drinks late (he forgot to get them from the bar), the one appetizer took over 30 minutes to get (we are pretty sure he forgot to put it in until we asked where it was), the meals came 5 minutes after the appetizer and were lukewarm (appetizer was very hot). The food tasted pretty good but the overall service that night was tough! The waiter was nice and pretty much said as much. We may try again on a less busy night!
Make a reservation but don’t be disappointed if parked next to an overcrowded bar with backpack loaded patrons that care less about knocking into you. Don’t bother listing a birthday celebration either to get consideration for a decent booth or seating.
I was bummed the 2 drinks I went to this pub to get were out. HH food was priced well for the location.
