This was a repeat visit but quite disappointing. Mostly ignored by the staff and portions were actually smaller than just a few weeks ago.

We dined for Breakfast at Elm and Good on a sunday morning. When we arrived, we waited a few minutes for the host to greet us and seat us (I believe he was the manager). He immediately notified us that they were short a server, and apologized in advance for any lack of service we might experience. We appreciated his honesty, and also noticed how quickly and expeditiously that he was working along with the other server. It was team-work at it's finest, and we honestly had no delay to our meals. Food was fantastic!

The noise level was only loud because of the live Sax Jax music. The Sax was a little to loud to have a good conversation; however the service, food, and atmosphere was enjoyable. We will definitely go back. Thank You

I liked it but didn't love everything we ordered. The lion's mane patty had a very strange taste to it and I usually love mushrooms. The sunchoke pate was original and tasty. The eggplant could have used less fried batter and more savory sauce in my opinion. Overall, I found things a little rich. I did like that there was a wide variety of veggie options on the menu. Just some of them sounded better than they actually tasted. The restaurant was very nice though and it was a good evening overall.

Loved the atmosphere, music, food and even our servers however, the service was not good. At all. We waited over 20 minutes for a carafe of champagne and even longer for a glass of wine. So long for the wine, we eventually went up to the bar to grab it because it had been sitting there. Granted, we didn't have to pay for the wine and it was appreciated. Hoping next visit will be better!

What a Delightful Brunch. Everything was perfect. There was lovely background music from a local singer, very laid back was beautiful but didn't interrupt conversation. I had the Redfish Sandwich. My wife had Excellent Eggs Benedict. Our guests had French toast and Brisket Hash and All was great. Our server was wonderful. Very attentive, but not intrusive. We will be back.

We went for a 35th birthday. They were great to store and cut the cake for us. The atmosphere and drinks were great. I brought the large number balloons for which they informed me they don’t allow balloons bc they don’t want it to affect the ambiance…except the table next to us had a 4 ft stuffed dog. The service was slow and the food wasn’t great. They had trouble getting our bills closed out. What was supposed to be a fun celebration ended up being somewhat frustrating. Probably will not return. Not worth the $. They were very nice, but not worth it.

Great food , terrible service.
No one at the door to seat us for several minutes. No one served water until we already had our wine glasses filled and requested water. The table next to us remained full of dirty dishes from the previous guests from when we sat down until until after we left. The waitress appeared completely disinterested until the end of the meal when she was about to present the check. She ran off while we asked about starters and didn’t check back. We waived her over to order and she tried to leave again but we had to hold her back to actually get our entree order in as well. She did not check back during the meal when we tried to order another side dish. It was impossible to get her attention because she was simply not paying any attention. Other guests didn’t seem to fare much better.
Overall a good meal and location ruined by very bad service. No manager in sight.

Also: we had booked a table in advance, changed the time of reservation so as not to run late and let the restaurant know, arrived well in time for the reservation and were contacted the next day by Open Table that Elm and Good marked us as not showing up for the reservation. Just a ridiculously mismanaged restaurant.

Looking for a special place that allowed time to connect while having an intimate, easy vibe that everyone in the city was not trying to be a part of. This place was PERFECT for that! Definitely adding it to my list of hidden gems 😀

Unfortunately our waitress tried to make our dining experience as pleasant as she could …although it was apparent that her waitressing experience was new for her. I commend her for getting my first cosmopolitan made exactly like I asked. The oysters we ordered were tasty but presentation lacking…served lonely in an oyster platter (that was not chilled nor contained any ice) along with 2 lonely lemon quarters. We had to ask for saltines (which were stale and salt free and not served wrapped but on a plate) We had to ask for condiments. (No horseradish to be found) Carbonara texture was that of elmer’s glue…the steak Diane was tough and the branzini was overwhelmed by a mystery sauce. On a good note, the mussels were uniquely and tastily prepared. We ordered a Spaish liquor desert drink which the bartender created spot on the 2nd time around. On the other hand the second time around for my cosmopolitan was terrible. I asked them to remake it twice. I felt badly for the waitress because the bartender argued with her about the drink. The staff tried hard …..but very disappointed in the food.

Good food, friendly staff and very nice decor. Only criticism is that it took too long to get our drinks and food. It wasn’t busy and we weren’t demanding. Shouldn’t take half an hour.

The lions mane mushroom cake and French toast are “MUST order”s! Such a lovely atmosphere - bright and airy.

But that French toast… I snuck a bite from my friend and will never be the same.

Experience was amazing. Chef Graham Dodds has a touch with sourcing and preparing vegetables that is second to none. The meat proteins were excellent as the pot roasted short rib was a table favorite.

The hotel looks great. The restaurant looks great. The food was good and the service was horrible. If elm and good wants to be considered a top restaurant the bartender should know about the food and the chef and history of the building and the food server should know about the ingredients of the food. We will give the restaurant another try in a few months

I'm a tough critic... I worked in the service industry for years. Few things I had an issue with. We sat without water for too long. By the time we were acknowledged, we placed our entire order, including drinks. Food came out prior to the drinks hitting our table. The egg on the avocado toast was snotty, not properly poached. Our server was super nice, probably the highlight of the meal. Unfortunately, with very few people in the restaurant, I found it somewhat silly that the bar had such a difficult time keeping up. Not to mention, we sat directly in front of the bartender waiting for water/attention which she could have easily done but she was too busy talking to the artist who was singing there that day.
