Great patio dining under the oaks. A midtown tradition. Can’t go wrong.

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 had brunch on the front patio, and it was great. It was a nice, laid back atmosphere, the food was delicious, and the service was excellent.

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.

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!

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.
