Very good food. The dressing for the Caesar salad was lite and delicious! Chilean sea bass was phenomenal. The only thing that I would change is that they should advise customers that there is a wine list in addition to what is listed on the menu! We were not told until our meal was almost finished.

The table and the food were both very good, the service was terrible however. First we ordered a drink, the server ordered the wrong vodka and the martini was vanilla 🤮 our server never returned to check on us and I had to return the drink to the bar myself.
We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and the server poured our first glass and never offered to refill. The final straw was she placed two menus for dessert on our table and said, the kitchen is closing if you want dessert....”
This totally ruined an otherwise wonderful evening. The only saving grace was the bar manager Manny. He remade the martini and was very apologetic.

I had the beet salad and it was perfect. My guest had the bacon burger. Make sure you are hungry this thing is big! He said it was delicious. The atmosphere is nice, perfect for a date, a night out with friends or an office dinner

5:30 reservation so restaurant was not crowded. Had the braised beef and pork ribs. Both were excellent. Slaw had vinaigrette dressing so it was a bit different, but good. The portions were good sized, so no room for dessert.

Steak Frites was perfectly cooked, very tender, lovely blue cheese butter on top, great fries and a good arugula salad which nicely offset the richness of the steak and butter/cheese. I will say that we waited an inordinately long time for our food, our very nice waiter dropped by and said, How's it going? We say, Fine...! and he realizes we never got the food, so he apologized and rushed to the kitchen and got our order re-input after which we quickly got the food. Never did quite understand what the issue was, seems like they misplaced our ticket. I'll give them a break given the difficulty with re-staffing as they open up from pandemic limits (however my wife tells me the same thing happened a couple of years ago, pre-pandemic). Still, a very good meal and experience overall

We had a great busboy and server that were always there for us, which was great. The inside is so beautiful, but we were seated outside, and our table was not big enough for the five of us. We will be back though.

We sat at the bar to eat, because we could only get a table outside. Love the ambiance and the vibe. I had the beet salad with salmon, on side as an add on. The beet salad was tasty but small, the salmon was grilled and very good. My friend had the onion soup and veggie risotto. The soup was good, the risotto was just ok but nothing innovative, kind of bland. We had Caroline very nice, Manny, very sweet, and Gil who got a little frustrated with us. I think everyone is trying hard to give good service. I had a Grey Goose dirty martini very nice and the Porterhouse red Wine choice, both were delicious. They let you taste the wine first, which is nice. Nice little neighborhood hang we enjoyed our time.

First, service was horrible. Had to get up once to get our own water. I don’t understand a restaurant that have bottles of water and they leave them in a central serving area instead of putting them on the dining table.
Food was mediocre at best. French onion soup is disgusting. I think it came from Costco.

Never again!

This was our first time here. We had 7:30 reservations and were seated at 7:15 because we arrived early. One of their specials was a Seabass and it caught my eye out of everything and I wanted the Seabass. But the waiter said they were running out so he went to go check. Turns out they were all out. So I had to settle for barbecue meatloaf. I could not believe a restaurant would be out of a special so early in the evening. They did apologize and I do understand but I could not stop my disappointment. Despite this, we enjoyed our time and the food was good, and our server Shawn was very attentive. We would return here again.

Booth too straight up when sitting for our party of 4, sat at table for 7, Aldo not very comfortable chairs. Excellent service, tasty meal.

On the way in from the parking lot by the succulents on the right, I tripped and fell down —there was an unmarked concrete sidewalk raising that went into entry area not easily seen.

Could be avoided by moving succulents over a bit.

It was nice. The menu is smaller due to covid but very good. The service is good but they bring bread but not the knife, The coffee but no sugar...so sometimes it felt slow even though the service was available. The wine all tasted horrible.

Went for mother's day. Portion of the sea scallop dish was disappointing. 4 scallops U-24-30 size. Service was slow; or server took over 5 minutes to greet us, 10 minutes to receive our drinks and forgot to bring bread and a high chair. I had to go inside and soak to a host to get a highchair 15 minutes after being seated.

It was great to be back! We sat inside but their outdoor seating area looked great, almost like a private dinning area with curtains separating each seating area. Thanks, Dry Creek Grill. Always amazing!
