Server was amazing and very informed but the food did not live up to the price. Everything tasted very rich- felt like I needed an acid to break everything up on the plate but only root vegetables and potatoes were available for sides to our rib eyes. Our table was crammed in by the window- everyone at the table remarked how close the tables on either side of us were. A bit strange when paying for a $300 meal. Nothing was bad but if they are going to keep the seating and menu the same they should seriously consider lowering the menu prices by 30%.

I couldn’t give the food more stars because one of the meals, bison hanger steak, came to the table cool. Other than that it was a very positive experience

My friends and I had a wonderful time at your restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was phenomenal. They happily accommodated my life-threatening allergies so I could relax and just enjoy the meal! We'll definitely be back again!

A hit in the heart of Greenwood- amazing talent in the kitchen and great style throughout. So grateful to have this spot in my neighborhood. The menu is impressive- incredible variety in terms of how each dish is prepared. Had a phenomenal Gem Lettuce salad to start and the Bison Hangar Steak...wow! Do not miss that steak-- I had not had bison before and was blown away by the dish...had bleu cheese crumbles and carmelized onions/shallots. Just delicious! Fun energy at the bar. Little on the loud side though, so be prepared for that and a great experience.

Too loud. Need to add noise reduction baffles. Hang some fabric from the ceiling.

Service a bit slow after the food arrived. Coffee refills....needed to ask.

We had four different entrees. FANTASTIC & DELICIOUS!!!

We're coming back for dinner.

Thank you for a great brunch.

This place is hopping! We were seated upstairs which was lovely. I didn't realize how big this place was until I arrived. The food was on point for the most part. My only complaint was my pork chop had a ton of fat on it. I'd say at least 1/3 of it was fat sadly, but the taste was phenomenal. The other amazing dishes were the squash appetizer and the duck salad. The molten chocolate cake and banana split desserts were both amazing. Service was excellent and they were patient with us to explain all the dishes we asked about. The cocktails were reasonably priced and good!

We had a great experience last year so we booked again but was disappointed with the ambiance (not very festive upstairs, bright lights) and some of the food. The cocktails, squash appi, and the beef steak were great but the boar gnocchi was salty and duck confit was not very good.

This neighborhood restaurant never disappoints! I took a friend from out of town and she was blown away by the food. From apps to mains to dessert, FlintCreek delivered! But perhaps what made our evening so wonderful was the phenomenal service we received -- just the right amount of attentive that made sure our needs were anticipated and met, but also that we could enjoy our conversation. Can't rave enough about this place.

Our son was home from college and wanted to give him one good steak dinner before heading back. We all shared a burrata which was delish! Then my son and I both ordered rib eyes which we cooked perfectly. My wife ordered the chicken which had a great crispy skin and moist meat. Overall great experience.

The service was off. It seemed like they are doing a job without any passion, just interested in talking to each other not watching their tables. The food was good. I would not go back.

We were excited to eat brunch here because it’s sister restaurant, RockCreek, is a favorite of ours for any meal, including brunch. FlintCreek just doesn’t measure up. It’s not poor, but the quality is lower than the prices. Perhaps it is excellent for dinner, but we will not be back for brunch.

A great combination of flavors, preparation, presentation and excellent staff. (We loved the diversity of the staff.) Our "server" was Amalia. How refreshing not to be told all of our choices were "perfect," as is the case in most other restaurants around town. You know, "I'll have the black garlic caesar." "Perfect," the server replies. A meaningless reply and we hate it! However, with Amalia, we got a knowledgeable lady. She knew her wine, knows something about Washington State terroir and could hold her own in a conversation about some very specific inquiries. Amalia's knowledge of the menu was excellent and quite helpful. The place is crowded, our reservation was honored in a timely manner. Though busy, the pace of the meal was leisurely and never rushed.

About that black garlic caesar, yummy. Croutons delicately flavored, crispy with just the right amount of anchovies. Well dressed and a nice start to the meal. I would advise buying your own salad and not ordering this plate to share as it is not a generous portion, just a delicious one. All of the side dishes tired were good, worked with the entrees and ones we saw passing by to other tables all looked tasty. For the main event, I had black peppercorn crusted venison. It was on a bed of the creamiest, whitest parsnip puree, covered with a cranberry gastrique and a few fried sage leaves. Oh my gosh. Not fussy, not too much, all of it executed with balance and flavor and presented with such simple style.

All of the dishes at our table were excellent. I only want to call out one more item. That is the potato parmesan gnocchi served along with the braised shoulder of wild boar. I am not a gnocchi fan. Oftentimes too clunky, thick, flavorless, little lumps of mush. These were like pillows of heavenly, creamy, cheesy potatoes. A nice surprise and compliment to he very hearty (and delicious) wild boar.

Don't forget to share a banana split!

That was one of the best meals out I have had in a long time! I like Flint Creek, but this dinner was really memorable and delicious. My husband and I split a steak with the grits as a side and a salad before. Really really yummy!! A cocktail before was splendid and the service was also notable. Five stars!

Really need to work our staffing issues. The bar was unable to handle our drink orders (twice!) in a timely manner. Oh, and that was after being seated and left alone for 20 minutes. Whoops! Pretty sure if I'm dropping $300 for dinner, the service ought to be better.
