The atmosphere was really great. Got to listen to the live music next door. They were short a server so our service wasn’t great that night, but I’m hopeful it’s not that way all the time.

We had a great experience and can't wait to return. The olives were served warm in a cast iron bowl; delicious. The cheese plate was the best I have tasted and included local honey. We also felt safe with wait staff wearing masks. We recommend 100%

We went to dinner here last night as we had dined here a few years ago and thought the food was decent. Unfortunately last night the food was not up to par. Our apps (cheese board and marinated olives) were tasty but the main course (lobster roll & steak frites) was not good. The fries were way over salted, the steak was chewy and the lobster roll was mainly bread. It was not your traditional lobster roll with mayo but had a side of melted butter to dip it in. Had it not been for the patio seating & live music we got to hear next door it would have been even less enjoyable.

We went to celebrate our 22 year wedding anniversary. We have 5 yr old twin boys and were put in the “kid corner” which we knew when the hostesses changed out “party of 4” to two parents and kids, so “seat them in the kids area.” Far back of the restaurant next to the bathrooms. We were all dressed very well and kids behaved so great that even the waitress commented on how well they did. Spending $350 on dinner and wine, but when you show up with kids, you’re presumed a certain way. The manager was great, and out waitress was so nice, the 5 yr old boys said how nice and pretty she was. Food was awesome, just wish we weren’t secluded to the back corner of the restaurant just because we had kids, even though they have a specific kids menu.

The reviews are true - service is awful. Our apps arrived before drinks. Our server (Alex) was never present. Thank goodness the busser/runner (Juan) was there or we would never have received anything. He was terrific. The dining room was very warm but is nicely decorated. When we sat down and saw salt & pepper shakers on the table it should have been a warning. A true chef won’t need salt & pepper on the table because the food is properly seasoned and prepared. The food was not good. The poke was well prepared but lacked acid. The tots & caviar was clever but only tasted of insipid truffle oil. The charcuterie was outstanding but I’m certain it is purchased. Alex has no idea what 3 meats were featured on the plate, and instead of asking the chef he guessed wrong. All entrees were flavorless, as if the chef couldn’t find the salt cellar. (At least it was on the table.) Alex never returned to the table to see how things were. The lamb was raw, the steak was overcooked, and the trout was not seasoned. The set on the trout plate was terrific, but those flavors couldn’t help the unseasoned trout. It was very disappointing.

Sorry to say this-but I will not return. The service and food were horrible. Let's start with the food;
1. My husband ordered the coquettes-I tasted one and my bite was cold, not lukewarm, it was cold-like out of the freezer cold.
2. I'm a vegetarian and I asked if I could get the mashed potatoes with truffle butter and broccolini. The Chef said "yes" and placed a big block of tofu on top. Which was kind, however, with tofu you can't just sear the outsides of a big block, you need to slice it so it heats through or even better, sear all the slices. Again, my food was not warm to the point the butter wouldn't even melt. I had to smash it into the tofu and mashed potatoes.
3. My husband ordered a meat dish and was thoroughly unimpressed.
4. I had to remind the server multiple times to ask about a vegetarian entree option. I would have been totally fine with not ordering an entree as there were several veg starter options.

Our server wasn't friendly and seemed annoyed I wasn't ordering alcohol. Before bringing the entrees, she said the bottles of French and Spanish were 1/2 price and dropped a wine menu that had all bottles of wine 1/2 price. Huh? BTW 1/2 price meant $100+. This is not the type of dining establishment that can support $200 bottles of wine.

Really nice evening. Food is excellent. Service is friendly but a few Restaurant 101 features need to be reinforced. The plates from the first course should not be removed until everyone at the table is finished. The second course should never show up before the first course is finished. When you’re paying over $100 per person, this stuff should be down pat. We’ll skip Fall Line next year.
