    When we arrived there was no host / hostess to seat us. We waited for 15m but no one showed. So we left and ate elsewhere.

    Overall Im glad I chose this spot for my business meeting. Unfortunately I can not rate the food here as we only had the prosciutto and mozzarella platter which was good but how can you do that wrong! Lovely cocktail list and good wine selection. Love the seating chairs and good ambient.

    The food portions were incredibly small and very plain. Drinks were fine but the service was very slow for a rather slow night. Overall, not impressed

    I was very disappointed - while the drinks were great and the bartender was very lovely- we didn’t not get a table as reserved but rather were put in a corner at standing tables- this was not what I had reserved

    I made a reservation for a group gathering of 5. When I arrived 20 minutes early, I found the restaurant was hosting a private party. The manager told me they couldn't accommodate my group and suggested I go elsewhere. Beware, the restaurant may not honor Open Table reservations. Afterward I contacted the restaurant to see if I could get a gift card to host a future gathering there, and 7 weeks later, I have yet to receive a response to make things right.

    The small plates, with the exceotion of one, were quite delicious. Cocktails equally so. Service not particularly good, but one or two of the service staff failed to show up, so the one waitress did her very best. And kindly gave a second cocktail and of the plates gratis to make up for it.

    The oysters were EXCELLENT! Tuna tartare and cocktails were also good. Outstanding value for those oysters, especially at happy hour.

    Crimson & Rye was our first stop for my friend's bachelorette party. I chose it mostly because it seemed like it would be a good choice for a large group, which it was. I made a reservation, but didn't really need to. We arrived at 5:30 and there was hardly anyone else there. Service was very friendly, but a little slow especially considering that they weren't busy. My group enjoyed a couple bottles of wine and appetizers. I had a great mocktail. Overall I was happy with my choice and would stop in again.

    Food was actually disgusting (had mac and cheese and pulled pork sliders). There was no bathroom, service was extremely slow.
