Waitress Emma was excellent. Restaurant was out of French onion soup, disappointing two ladies in our party. Mushroom bisque was divine! Not enough short ribs in poutine. Great desserts.

I love coming to Eatnic! I've never had to wait and the atmosphere is wonderful. The servers are nice and the cooks are great at customizing meals to your preference. My favorite is their breakfast/brunch menu. The food is very good quality and fresh. Would definitely recommend.

Enjoyed the atmosphere in this quaint bistro BYOB. Service was very good and attentive. Food presentation was done very nicely. I had the beet salad and the dressing was perfect. Duck breast was very tender and accompanied nicely with the mushroom rye berries.

Wonderful lunch today! I had the market day pasta. Today it was linguine with lobster, scallops, ramps, and spring peas in a fresh tomato sauce. It was delicious! My husband had the lobster sandwich, which was also excellent. I also tried one of the yummy new mocktails. Can't wait for our next visit!

Wow, waaay overpriced. I paid $20.50 (before tax and tip) for an unsweetened iced tea and a mushroom, Swiss and spinach grilled cheese (replaced my fries with a salad). Good lord that is an insane price, I don’t care where the food came from. And it was average, nothing special, nothing you couldn’t get anywhere else in the area for much less. Won’t be going back or recommending.

Delicious BYOB farm to table food with great variety of offerings on the menu. Fresh ingredients elegantly prepared, with lovely waitstaff who are attentive and do not rush you. One of our favorite spots! Decor is upscale farmhouse and kitchen is open to view. Menu changes with the seasons, although there are some standing items. Definitely a hidden gem.

The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is due to the insanely foolish decision to no longer accept credit or debit cards.

It's a shame since I was starting to love this place.

I spoke with the manager and he didn't seem to disagree so... I'm a little confused at this under thought decision.
While I hope it's not the end for this restaurant, I'm sure it will do quite a bit of damage to their revenue over time.

Everyone I know has said they will likely go to many of the other fine dining restaurants where it's not a hassle to pay.

This place is very good, but they have quite a lot of competition in the high income area where they are.

Having eaten at this restaurant before, we were looking forward to a pleasant meal. Unfortunately, the food and service did not live up to the menu hype. The server was quite perky and accommodating, but she failed on two counts: when asked if a fish menu item was wild or farmed, she said she did not know but then went into a long spiel about how they buy sustainable food etc; she finally brought the check but did not return to pick up the credit cards.
The food was disappointing, with a few exceptions. The mushroom bisque was delicious. The salad was large but the dressing lacked any flavor or seasoning. The "beer batter" calamari had a soggy bready batter, not a beer batter, and seemed to have come out of a large bag of frozen product. The duck was served lukewarm, and when sent back was returned with fewer nuggets of duck and the whole meal sort of thrown on the plate. The char was overcooked and bland.
Desserts were unappealing so we skipped them.

The menu is interesting but sadly the food was not well prepared. Veggies were undercooked, meat was over seasoned and the service was extremely slow. it took 17 LONG minutes for the wait staff to take our order and they never inquired if our food was ok. I will not return and would suggest that you dine elsewhere.

We enjoyed Eatnic. There were a couple of very minor bumps (they were out of our first menu choice at 6 PM on a Tuesday and then they were out of one of the two specials as well) but the food was good and we had a good time.

The restaurant was nice enough, but I'm not sure if I would go back. The waitress was very nice and friendly, however she never filled up our waters, either throughout our meal or as we sat and chatted. We were not made to feel like we had to rush though, as there was no one waiting for our table. It did seem like the cleanup service was slow, tables around us were not bused/cleaned for a while after the customers left. My friend got an herb frittata and she said it was okay, but there was not much cheese. I got the pork shoulder tacos and they were extremely dry. The meat itself was tasty but very dry, and there was no sauce, just a chopped pica de gallo style topping. It needed some kind of sauce or cream. I asked for something and she said she can get me more of what it's served with, which she did bring out, but I had already finished one of the three tacos by the time it arrived. What she brought out was not on my tacos at all so they must have forgotten that step initially. The coffee was tasty and the ricotta doughnuts were very good, but the blackberry jam served with the toast and the doughnuts was all tart and no sweetness, it really need some kind of sweetener in it (honey? sugar?). The interior's decor was okay, but a lot of items looked like they'd be better off in a more formal, french cafe style restaurant in a hotel lobby than a rustic farm to table spot on the Main line.

EatNic is the best restaurant on the upper Main Line that you haven't heard of. The food is fantastic--easily on par with White Dog Cafe or Nectar. The staff is also fantastic, very friendly and attentive. Menu is a little pricey, but a good value for the quality. It's BYO--if you like wine with dinner, this does save you some cash. It also means there's no bar crowd to deal with (which I consider a big plus). I almost don't want to write a review because I'm afraid when people find out about EatNic, it will be hard to book a table. Can we just keep this our little secret?

Was just here for lunch twice in one week. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was VERY happy to discover another great place for lunch. Excellent food, locally sourced and well-plated. Perfect lunch place for a couple or foursome. They will also prepare the food to your liking. For example, they have an excellent salmon cake sandwich and it was no problem to have it served over mixed greens, no bun. Will be coming back regularly for sure.

Went for brunch; before it was crowded. Service was slow; they said i would have to pay an up charge for a side salad when I couldn't have the potatoes because they weren't gluten free... Then they messed up 2/4 orders. Refill on coffee was slow, came after we finished our meal. Omelette was okay, but other than that I wasn't impressed.

The food was quite good, but I gave it only three stars, because one side of my salmon cake sandwich was burned. And it was put on the bun side, with the lovely golden brown side on top. That seemed to be a bit deceptive. Fortunately, it still tasted good. The two stars for service is because we were not asked whether we wanted additional hot water for our tea, and the waiter brought the check without asking whether we wanted dessert--or anything else. Despite these missteps, I would go back and give EatNik another try. It is a lovely restaurant with creative food choices.

The food (and coffee) was great! Perfect, cute brunch spot for the weekend. The service was OK, but we overheard one of the employees tell another customer that they were slow because a few employees didn’t make it in on time because they all went out drinking the night before (not necessary to share, just say you’re short-staffed, leave it at that) — but the staff that was there was friendly enough and they even gave us complimentary donuts because we ordered muffins but they were out. Overall a good experience! We’ll be back!

Lunch at EatNic was a great experience, from prompt seating by the hostess to the attentive service from Nico. We enjoyed the casual, friendly atmosphere with delicious menu options utilizing fresh, local ingredients. The herb omelette and market pasta with lamb bolognese were yummy.

When we were seated, Nico, our server, warned us that he was the only one on duty for the entire room. We wondered if we were in for a bumpy ride, as the service can sometimes vary, however, Nico proceeded
To manage all the tables professionally and gave us excellent service throughout the meal. Our appetizers of calamari and beet dip with carrot chips arrived promptly and were delicious and plentiful. But the real treat was the entrees,a seasonal special of swordfish with a tomato shellfish nage, one of the best entrees we have ever had there, and duck breast over Brussels sprouts and rye berries. We like to support local businesses and local farms, and our dinner at Eat Nic accomplished both!

First visit made as sorry we waited so long. Sadly they were out of cheese for the appetizer plate, but the beet salad we shared was tasty. Both the short ribs and the special swordfish were served in ceramic bowls that kept the food warm to the last bite. We look forward to eating at EatNic again soon!
