Our experience was quite good. The food was delicious and we booked this reservation for dinner before a show. We arrived fifteen minutes early, advised of our plans to the staff, and they readily seated us. The staff was friendly and helpful. While our main meal seemed to run a little behind schedule, the manager was apologetic and in the end, did not cause us to be late to the show. Absolutely I will return and recommend this place: it helped created a really nice evening for us all.

Nice space and excellent service. Although the food was very good, portions were small and pours for the drinks were flat out stingy and not indicative a restaurant charging top end prices. Also, no bread service is a bad look.

This was our first visit, but won't be our last. We had tickets to an 8pm show. When we told this to our server he assured us we would be on time. Three small plates, one shared entree and two deserts were all very well prepared, and more importantly very tasty. Really enjoyed the Crispy Pork Stack, and the Sea Scallop special. Service was impeccable, couldn't ask for more.

We had a lovely meal - we ordered items from the Restaurant Week Prix Fix menu. My pasta was amazing - the butter sauce was light and flavorful with lots of mushrooms and zucchini. My husband’s cod was cooked perfectly and the pickled onion accents were very tasty! I hadn’t had their creme brûlée before and it was wonderful. Our server was helpful and charming.

Was a great environment and the food was outstanding. They were able to make something that was kind of on the menu, but was specialized to something I really wanted and it was an amazing meal. Definitely will be back.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our dinner. The staff helped us pick an outstanding bottle of wine and it went perfectly with our meal. The small plate we shared was delicious. The also had numerous gluten free options. The entrees were delicious. I would highly recommend Cowell & Hubbard.

The food and portions expected. However, service is where it was not top of the charts. Due to our dietary needs and lifestyle we didn't order any alcoholic beverages. At the start of our dinning one visit from the waiter told us the specials then we ordered appetizers, salad, and main course all at once our waiter seemed to never visit our table. Also, whomever was in charge of pouring the tap water visited us once and we only had water. Very long wait time between dinner being done and plates taken (over 30 mins) before asking if we wanted a dessert menu (which we did). The seating in the half squares were awkward for my 6ft husband and felt like we were in everyone’s conversation and when others got up to leave in between the tables it was always moving the booth and a tight fit for anyone. How long was the pink salt on my table and who touched it / contaminated it? That’s all I kept thinking while the salt sits out customer after customer.

We went prior to going to a play at Playhouse Square. Food and service were wonderful without feeling rushed. Valet parking was very convenient and we received a discount on parking when having dinner. It’s our go to place when going to the theater.

When we arrived, the hostess was not able to find our reservation, made thru Open Table. Luckily I was able to find my confirmation email, otherwise, the hostess was offering our party of 4 only bar seating...not the best for conversing.

Actually very surprised at how quiet the restaurant was considering the layout. Chelsea was outstanding, we tend to talk a lot and not keep track of the ordering flow -- her timing was perfect and even when we weren't ready she was really great about it. Just a really good experience.

The food, drink, and server were good as usual. I will note the kitchen seemed to be backed up, as it took notably longer to get food than usual.

The booth located at the front of the restaurant, nearest the entry door, is not particularly comfortable. There is only minimal space between the edge of the table and persons sitting on the bench seats.

Wonderful experience. Hard to beat before any show at playhouse square. Had the Bone marrow, fench onion dumplings, seared cod, spaghetti squash, and finished the night off with house made limoncello, sorbet and espresso. Would recommend to anyone.
