Some dishes were good, some were just average. The service was awful. The waiter didn't stop by for at least 10 mind., bought us filthy wine glass, broke the cork on our bottle of wine and left the broken bit on the table through the whole meal, he never brought us bread, never brought a soda that was ordered, didn't remove an item from the check that he said he would (he fixed it, but had to be reminded), he didn't take 20% off some items as detailed on the menu for the night in question (again he fixed it but said he doesn't normally work the dining room and didn't know about it). He left two place settings on the table through the whole meal that we didn't need, but in the end it was a good thing because we kept needing silverware that he didn't bring us so we had extras. I felt a bit sorry for the waiter. It was clear he wasn't really a waiter, and I felt management shouldn't have let him on the floor or at least been monitoring him carefully (we never saw a manager anywhere near his station). We won't be headed back to Cunninghams. So good onion rings, a nice bottle of wine, good Bolognese, and great crème burlee, don't balance out a lack luster Caesar, runny risotto, a weird flavor combo dumpling appetizer, and truly bad service.

Was surprised that meal here was under par for the amount you pay. Server Amanda was great and apologetic about slow meal service. Took a long time to get our drinks, salad was excellent. Entree was really fatty ribeye with over roasted brussells. Only given 4 scallops in seafood dish and risotto cooked to mush and watery. Will think twice about going back. Amanda did comp my steak which was sweet. Meal was still close to $100. Big disappointment.

The food was disappointing. Didn’t seem like it was really farm to table.

We dined here for Valentine's Day 2018. Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. Here's a few of our experience comments to provide:

The two-person table that we sat at was borderline uncomfortable proximity to other couples, but we made the best of it. We ordered their sangria (carafe) and it was absolutely delicious, however we couldn't help but notice $7/glass vs. $28/carafe was disproportionate. We *maybe* got three glasses of sangria from the carafe since it was overloaded with ice. That was a bit of a turnoff, but whatever - it truly was very delicious.

It was a Pre-fixed menu which was fine. The appetizers that we ordered (avocado/lobster salad and Oysters) were flavorful. Salad was extremely fresh and light; and oysters were perfectly cooked. W.R.T. the Oysters - it is very evident that Cunningham's puts effort behind their dishes; however for this one, they compensated with 'filler' ingredients when the portions are very small.

Entree's: We ordered the Pork Loin and Lamb Rack. Both were Rock-star dishes. Complements to the chef(s)! Pork had a nice smoky yam side which gave a complementary dish. Lamb came with a nice hash/pimiento-style side that was enjoyable. A little on the sour side, but definitely tasty.

We skipped desserts and substituted this for their Shrimp Bisque soup appetizer. This was very good... we had hoped it would have more ingredients in it such as shrimp bits or a veggie, but overall - delish.
.............................................

All-in-all, it was a very delicious experience. We did leave though thinking that they've overpriced themselves a bit though.
.............................................

Solid venue for the occasion date!

Valentine's day we decided to revisit Cunningham's. Our first visit was on my birthday a few months ago and we were very impressed. Our second visit was just as impressive. Everything was delicious

Overall, the food and ambiance at Cunningham's was pretty good. We were mostly disappointed by the service. Upon arriving for a 9pm reservation on a Saturday, we were surprised that the hostess didn't even look up from her computer to acknowledge our arrival. After waiting a few moments (when no one else was around and it was pretty quiet at the entrance) my husband finally said hello to her and without looking up she said, "I'll be with you in a second." Certainly not what you would call a warm or gracious welcome. When we did have her attention and she led us to our table, she didn't smile once. Same thing happened when we left and said goodbye. Our servers were very nice, but there seemed to be confusion about who was serving us as several people stopped by to offer menus, welcomes, specials, but it still took until 9:30 before we got our first drink. There was a lot of emphasis on the farm to table approach of the restaurant but this was not really evident in the menu; for example, no attempts were made in identifying where the produce, meat, seafood was sourced. The menu was also pretty small and traditional - nothing too exciting. My husband really liked his duck confit toast appetizer and I enjoyed by shrimp and grits which had lots of veggies and a great broth. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant. Some small tweaks would make this place a regular on our schedule.

The pouring rain may have affected the crowd on a Saturday before Valentines Day but, it was decent. The food was high quality as usual. We ordered the bronzini but, it was sold out by 8:45. Ended up going with seared tuna and grilled salmon salad. Both were very good. Wine was good and reasonable. The poached pear dessert was excellent as well. The waiter did not know that they had readers available to borrow for those of us with older eyes and he served us over a railing that separated a seating area which, is not a big deal but, when you are with a professional who cut her teeth in top NYC restaurants, it’s hard not to notice. Overall a very nice dinner for a special occasion.
