    First time trying this spot. Everything on the menu looked amazing. Our server-can’t remember her name was super nice. However the actual service left a lot to be desired. We started with the popcorn shrimp and couldn’t even finish it all. Great portion. Server never came to check once we received but we were able to grab her about 15 mins later to order our main entrees. Salmon and fried chicken were delicious. A runner brought these out and literally didn’t see our server again until I asked the hostess if she could grab her so I could have a drink refill. I get people get busy but when I look over and you’re hanging out at the bar chatting with other servers and the bartender without ordering drinks-at least come over and ask how our meal is or check to see if I’d like a refill on my empty glass. Other than that, food was amazing. Wonderful location, nice vibes. Would definitely come back to try other meals but may need another server. Pretty sure the table beside us felt the same.

    It started off a little rocky (still a fine experience nonetheless) with having to wait 30 mins to be greeted after being sat but the server and manager both recovered super well and made us feel great. Luckily the extra time at our table was needed because it was a catch up brunch with a visiting friend so truly we were just fine. The food and drinks were delicious and our server was so nice. I can’t wait to come back with more people!

    Second time dining at culinary dropout, gave it an another chance after the first time going even though the service was poor. Unfortunately, the service hasn’t gotten any better, I took forever to get an appetizer about 25min after ordering and the waitress wasn’t super attentive. The restaurant wasn’t full and the waitress advised the kitchen was really back up. This happened last time as well. The food is good but the service unfortunately is gonna keep me from going. If you don’t mind waiting a long time for food drinks etc, then you will be fine.

    Great experience. Taylor was amazing! He had great energy! Took great care of my friend and I! Contrary to that and the only negative was the manager Chris that dropped off our food. Was not very friendly, seemed to have an attitude, could have lived without that encounter. Food was great! We had the Katsu chicken sandwich and Mud pie for dessert. I would go back/recommend!

    Probably won’t come back here except to drink. The only good food we had was the tahini appetizer, everything else was subpar and relatively expensive for what we got. Service was great but otherwise can’t say it’s my favorite.

    Incredibly overpriced for small portions of mediocre food. Overall, I'm disappointed. 3 bussels sprouts for $8? Cocktails made with well liquor. Don't waste your time here.

    The atmosphere/decor of the restaurant is great. The service, however was awful. Long delays getting anything done. We could see our drinks sitting on the bar while our waitress was nowhere to be found. Twice we had to get the attention of a manager (no small accomplishment in itself) to get service.

    Okay food, not fantastic. Odd server. Place is loud and oddly laid out. Pretzel bite Appetizer decent. Not terrible, but would not go back a second time.
