Cunningham's Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
This was our 10th dining experience with Cunningham’s and for the first time we were very disappointed. From the host to the service not what we have come to expect from Cunningham’s.
The host greet was lackluster, no greeting just the “Applebee’s” standard “Do you have reservation?” “Follow her” that was it, they dropped the menus no interaction at all.
Then service, where to begin. We sat down, the table had a sever “wobble” we asked to move to the next table and were told that it was a busy night and all tables were reserved. That table was not sat for the entire 2 hours of our dinner.
I ordered a bottle of Frogs Leap (our 12th bottle) , our server butchered the cork, I had to ask her to decanter it, although she did bring the decanter tableside.
We ordered the Charcuterie Board, we explained to our server that we would like to enjoy the Board before the Beet Salad. Well.... the board was delivered, no explanation as to was was being presented, then the salad came minutes after the board was delivered.
The highlight of the evening were our entrees, 14oz Strip med rare and the Bolognese Pork Ragu were perfect.
The ambaiance was horrible, there was a lager party, very loud clapping, flash from cell phone cameras. Just brought the dinner down many levels.
Dessert was just ok, New pastry chef? The Maple Crème brûlée was very loose with a very poorly executed hard Carmel. Secondly, no expresso or cappuccino! I would expect that the machine would be fully functional for the weekend prior to Valentines Day.
Sadly not sure if we will return as there are many Farm to Table venues now open close to us.
Although my last dinner here was not the best (Mother's day last year....), this time it was superb! Service was exceptional, the food was great (we did the 3 course prix-fixe menu for $39) and the wine was excellent. We also ordered an extra appetizer - the tartare - and it was really good. They serve it with crispy fried chips. We ordered the salad, the shrimp & grits and the Pasta for mains and two different (phenomenal) desserts.
We were seated at a quiet table in the corner, so we sat for 2+ hours and enjoyed the wine, the food and the conversation. I especially want to mention our server, I had requested a sample of two different wines to select a bottle from, and she brought 4 different samples to make sure I would be happy with my selection.
So glad we came back to give Cunningham's another try!
Saturday evening party of 6. We arrived in the bar and had an amazing cocktail before the rest of the group arrived. We were not rushed to take our table and hung out in the bar until all 6 got there and had a drink. We were seated in the long booth tables with Andy as our waiter. We had one gluten/dairy allergy and he handled it with no problems at all. She even ordered the restaurant week and didn't want the desserts. He subbed for another veggie, again no problem. Great meal with wine pairing and the best devils food dessert. The angel food was a bit strange, but no big deal. Wish the noise level was lower but it was a busy Saturday. Will get better once weather improves and they can open the patio.
Thanks Andy, you did a great job!
My husband and I came here with friends during restaurant week. The ambiance is very classy. There is valet parking, as well as a lot across the street. We had a great meal! The restaurant week menu was very comprehensive and included an optional wine pairing with each course. I started the evening off with the Forbidden Fruit cocktail which included bourbon, apple brandy, walnut, cinnamon, and lemon. It was sweet but not overpowering and went down easy. The beet salad was refreshing and flavorful. The short rib was juicy and tender, it paired nicely with roasted garlic, pearl onions, and mascarpone polenta. For dessert we enjoyed the maple creme brulee and devils food cake. We didn't take home a single left over! We celebrated two birthdays and our server surprised us with house made cupcake and a candle! We will be back again!
First timers. BEST vodka gimlet of any local restaurants. Pumpkin/cider soup excellent as was the tuna and the steak. Server forgot to offer bread but otherwise good attention. Maple Creme Brulee was cold and not very "maplish". Appreciated the space between tables and the valet parking. Will definitely be back.
