Arrived on time for reservation only to have to wait a half hour for a table. And then the table wasn't really enough space for the 5 people in my party. The drinks were really good. I love the atmosphere. Service was so slow that we nearly missed ordering brunch and then the food nearly tasted like they rushed it. I will be back but it could have been better

Chef is delightful, and personally checked to make sure our Lobster Benedict was perfect.
Sunday brunch was packed with lots of ladies. Single men should have a drink at the bar if looking for ladies! Server nice and offered great wine suggestions. Bartender engaging and made the perfect spicy bloody mary.

We ordered some items and made sure to let our server know we had a vegetarian, when another server brought the food to us and there was bacon on top I let her know we had requested it not be. She was literally going to take it off with her hands right in front of us and refused to do anything about it. Ok. We were seated outside, they didn’t even set up the umbrella for us upon seated and it was so hot. I had to ask multiple people to help us before anyone finally came. We didn’t feel welcomed at all, the servers were rude and unprofessional- kinda sucks considering the food was great. All in all due to this I wouldn’t go back.

Very cute spot. I love the ambiance!! The vibe was amazing, the drinks were good. I ordered the seafood pasta it was a little spicy. The only feedback I would give them is on the seafood pasta it needed more seasoning. Overall , great experience.

This place and is ambience is very nice. Love the floral designs and the food is good. The only bad experience was walking in and getting greeted by a very rude, rude looking, snotty hosted. In restaurants the first impression sets the mood and to have a hosted so non personable and snotty it’s very uncomfortable. Not sure what her name was she was a paper thin blonde who was not friendly at all. Other then that our server was great. The chef is awesome. And drinks were yummy.

Have driven or walked past this place numerous times and finally decided to try it out with a friend who’s always open to investigating new experiences. Both of us were MORE than pleasantly surprised. Very nice, casual atmosphere both inside and on the outdoor patio; fortunately the food options and quality matched the ambiance. The option to self-park in the credit union parking lot across the street after they close at 6pm makes it so simple for those of us who don’t like leaving our cars with others (valet) or fighting for few parking spots! Definite recommend!

Loveeee... Dahlia!!! Is one of my Favorite Brunch places to come with girlfriends to catch up. They have this beautiful decor Patio you can sit at and just enjoy the breeze with a drink in your hand. There Service is 5 Stars!!! We always order a bottle of champagne to make Mimosas and my favorite drink in the Menu is the Dahlia. The food hands down is Amazing, I always order either the steak or the egg Benedict. They have cute Instagram decor location you can take pictures at and on Sunday’s they have a Dj. I will recommend anyone this place, you will always have a Great time at Dahlia. Recommend a reservation in advance. :)

In a nutshell: 100% on potential, 50% on execution

The people running the place were not particularly friendly or helpful. Starting with the hosts/hostesses, not a single one had a positive attitude, which immediately starts off the mood a little negatively. Then for the brunch menu, we continuously got “no, we can’t do that for you” even though the items were on the brunch menu. I understand with supply chain stresses, things can not be easily replaced, however staff need to be trained to offer up alternatives, such as, “No, we can’t make cappuccinos right now because the milk frother is broken, however I’d be happy to bring you coffee/espresso and milk/creamer.” As a first time guest, it’s not good to hear the first three things you ask for in a row are not available, and then top it off, have no solutions from the staff. THEY work there. They should know other great options so that the guests don’t sit with the feeling of lack at a place they’re paying to filled at. Finally, when the food did come, it was alright. The sliders were delicious, however the worst part of our meal was that the biscuits and gravy were warm but the sausage inside was cold..

The one saving grace about the place was the ambiance.

All that being said, we won’t be back.

Food was great- service was disappointing. We had reservations on the patio. There was one narrow table sandwich between two other full tables. We felt uncomfortable so asked to move to one of the other open tables. The hostess said no, because those were "reserved" which we thought was strange since we had reservations. We asked if we could sit elsewhere inside- she said no, there was nothing that wasn't reserved. We ended up at a table in the bar, which she explained had no server, so we'd need to go to the bar to order. We did that, which was fine, until our coffee we ordered didn't arrive. When we went to the bar again (after waiting for their attention for a considerable time), we were told with annoyance that the bartender would need to get a server to bring it to us. Again we had to go to the bar and feel like we were a complete intrusion by asking for refills on our drinks. Finally we wanted to pay and waited and waited by the bar to check out. Finally we were able to pay, but wanted to convey our disappointment. We spoke to a manager, who basically said "next time you come here, ask for me and I'll try to make it up to you." which felt like a blow off since they took none of our information, details on the issues, etc. Service issues with the hostess and bartender aside, we did enjoy the food. We had the waffle assortment which was delicious. But it's not enough to make me want to return.

22nd wedding anniversary

Tuna appetizer and sashimi to start was outstanding. Old Bay fries were good but everything else was all downhill from there.
Halibut was the special - it was so bland. Not worth the price
Seafood salad sounded amazing but it was disappointing.
Service was just ok.
We won’t be back.

The only parking is valet, and the restaurant has insufficient space.
Despite having a reservation, there was a wait because patrons who reserved patio space had to be brought indoors due to rain. They should have planned better.
It was entirely too noisy for my taste.
Had to scan the menu on my phone because none were available.

I would not return, although the food was good and fairly priced. It wasn't worth the aggravation.
