The waitress did not know much about the dishes on the menu. She was unable to answer any questions we had. I ordered the Porchetta it did not have much flavor and the taste was off. So about hour or two later I was sick and had to go back to the hotel room. So that ended date night early.

Einsteins came highly recommended by a friend, but my husband and I were pretty disappointed. My burger was pretty generic and my husband ordered the jerk pork belly on rice - which was very plain and boring. We asked for a sauce to go on it, and that helped. Over all we were just unimpressed.

Sadly, this long time establishment has fallen off. Food was mediocre at best. Same for the cocktails. Odd menu now including several “salad” options that are not served with any sort of greens (the server thus has to describe in detail what each item included). Can’t say that we will be back anytime soon.

Went to Einstein's for a date on a Saturday night. Food took over 40 minutes to show up. Both entree meats were dry and tough to eat. I didn't even finish my meal because I couldn't cut the meat. Thankfully the manager took the meal off our check. I was so thankful for that. Our server was very prompt and brought us plenty of bread to keep us occupied while we waited. I've been to Einsteins for brunch and it was amazing. I was excited for dinner to be just as fantastic. Will recommend people go for brunch but maybe not dinner.

Service our waiter was great ! The food was good but the kitchen took really long to produce food . The appetizers aren’t what they used to be like the calamari but I still enjoyed .

Arrived early (5PM) and the crowd was sparse. Ordered the bacon-wrapped peaches. The dish was prepared well and very tasty. Ordered the cheeseburger medium and it was delivered rare to both I and my date. If they can't do a burger right this place cannot get a high rating.

They played their stereo too loud. I used my earplugs. I didn't complain, but nearly every verbal exchange had to be repeated. If I had been there with a friend I would have had to had the volume reduced. I hate it when I haven't chosen the style and level of "music". It's too intrusive. Food and beverage were good.

The only compliant I have was that I think the server for our area had too many large party tables outside. This had a impact on the timing of getting drinks, and food. Hopefully the servers can get more a balance in the future to ensure that guest are getting prompt service.

We were extremely disappointed with the food selection andthe food that we were served. Did call the manager and he sent me a gift card for $30. We will come for brunch on the weekends probably will not come back for dinner for a long time

The food and outdoor seating were very good and just what we were looking for. However, our service/waiter was very poor. Took 15 minutes to get water another 15 minutes to order, order came out wrong, we asked the waiter for a couple of simple items which he never returned to the table with. The free bread basket made it to the table after the food did, more than 45 minutes after we had sat down. Will go here again for the food and atmosphere, but if I get set in that same waiter's section I will demand to be reseated.

We gave Einstein's one more chance and they failed. The experience started off poorly. When we arrived, we stood at the outdoor check-in stand with the greeter with her back to us as she chatted on a clearly personal call and continuously ran her hand through her hair and scratched her scalp. When she finally turned around to greet us, she picked up bread plates and silverware rolls with the same hand she had been scratching her head with and grooming her hair. It was so disgusting, we nearly left at that point. Has no one coached them on basic sanitary guidelines? Nilton was an excellent server. The food was OK.

The waitress was very nice but the service was disorganized-only 1/2 of the table received their food at the same time and most of the food was cold. Plus the restaurant was out of so many things

We really enjoyed our visit. The only disappointment was that the pepper jack grits were so bland we had to send them back to trade for another side. The steak was fantastic!

Excellent choice for large parties as they have options that can accommodate most diets. The inside layout is spacious and mostly well thought. The menu works for vegetarians, but with the restaurants look&feel, I would expect more vegetarian entree options.

I am not sure if our server was new - we asked her a couple of questions regarding the menu - she didn't know the answer, but never returned with the answer either - she seemed rather disorganized.

The service was poor. The food wasn’t great either. We had a 6:30 reservation, and our food didn’t come out until after 8:30. I blame the server for this because he took our drink orders late and our food orders even later. We were a large party of 17, and with larger parties, you have to treat them differently knowing there are more entrees to prepare. He treated us like we were a party of 2 as opposed to 17. It’s like the difference between cooking for 2 and preparing Thanksgiving dinner. With Thanksgiving comes more mouths to feed and days of preparation. The larger the party, the more attention you give to details like time. This was my second time dining here. I was with my book club the first time - a party of 6 - and the service was just as slow. I won’t be back.

Kitchen was unusually slow. Server did his best to compensate and was appropriately apologetic. Still love this patio after more than 2 decades of patronage. Menu is better than ever.

While the food and the service was great. Unfortunately, we were seated across from a loud, vociferous group which upset the atmosphere of the place. On the bright side, they left shortly after we placed our orders, so we were able to enjoy our food in a more subdued atmosphere. While this is probably not an everyday experience, it was quite bothersome and we almost left until we notice the other group was leaving. Even during their departure they were obnoxious.

Brunch was disappointing. The service was not very good. The server was not friendly and had a non-interested attitude. We had to ask for refills on drinks when our glasses were empty. She only checked back with us once and that was when we flagged her down. One of our entrees (sandwich) was missing the meat. We couldn't find our server, so we asked for the manager to a passing server. His first response was that the menu had changed rather than admitting that the kitchen had made an error and did not make the sandwich as listed on the menu. He finally said (reluctantly) that he would bring the meat out so it could be added to the sandwich. By this time, the other members of the party were half finished with their meals. Guess Einstein's is trying to up their profit margin and cut back on the menu items.

I ordered a hamburger plain - specially no cheese. They must have forgot but instead of recooking a new burger the cook literally took the cheese off and tried to grill off what couldn’t be removed. One bite and I immediately gagged on the BURNT cheesy smelling burger! You’d think at an long time well established restaurant like Einstein; they wouldn’t have cooks preparing the food. Because that was a trifling move by a lazy cook not something a chef would do!

It’s a good thing, I don’t have a dairy allergy! Despite it, we enjoyed ourselves and drinks!

Food was great! I reserved the patio area for brunch. My husband enjoyed the Mimosa and shrimp and grits. The was the best place to have Father's Day Brunch. I will make reservation to revisit again in the future.

So I was excited about bringing my friend’s to Einstein’s for brunch based on my good experiences there in the past. When we got there we were advised of the new menu and it seemed very different from the previous one. I was a little disappointed in the limited offerings, but it was OK... just OK

Went on a Friday night prior to a concert with my wife of 25 years. We sat on the patio and enjoyed a warm spring night. Everything was good except they didn’t have any beer on tap. Apparently the pump was broken. Good overall experience.
