                                                            It was our first time eating at Foodcraft. We had a very hard time finding the restaurant because there are no signs except for a small one at the door. Once we got over that frustration, we had some of the best food we have have ever had down here! Beth, our server was amazing!

                                                            This was a Mother’s Day “brunch”. The biggest letdown was the service and an expectation that the brunch was buffet-style from the website’s description. With the risk of paying a penalty for “no shows”, expectations were high. The appetizers, snapper bites and fried honey goat cheese, were delicious. For entrees, two of us got the flank steak. This dish was a disappointment. While the flavor was good, the meat was very tough, making it a very poor meat option for a sandwich. While most of the entrees were enjoyed, all of the “fries” were cold and we had to wait several minutes for one of our guests to receive his entree, causing everyone to wait several minutes to eat. While the addition of the mimosa, Bloody Mary bar were a nice touch, the server seemed to struggle with how to communicate our options. This was an important detail for establishing the ambiance of the experience. For the price, the management should spend more time on the details with their staff, that is, teaching them how to set and manage expectations. As the host, I was disappointed, thankfully my guests were happy.

                                                            We went for Mother’s Day brunch with our 3 little ones. Everyone was very kind. There were pretty floral arrangements. The food was good. There were 3 different vegetarian options for my husband. The view is gorgeous. I will definitely go back.

We didn’t have room for dessert. Overall a nice meal in a family friendly environment. The complimentary valet parking was a nice touch!

                                                            Easter buffet was until 3pm. Food should have stayed out until 3pm. Cleanup should not have started until after 3pm. When the staff starts removing items and the bar closes at 2:30 it makes you want to rush your meal so as not to get in the Cleanup crews way. Our reservation was at 1:45. We should have at least been shown enough respect to take our time finishing our meal

                                                            It was a reasonable debut for Easter brunch. Lovely setting and Leo was very helpful in reservations and seating. Variety of food was good with breakfast items being best quality, but at 12:30p most items were obviously not hot and fresh and many were stale and dry. Standout dish was the bronzed triggerfish. The steamship round of beef was NOT hot, juicy or tender. Dessert table was gorgeous, but the coconut layer cake was dry and crumbling. The live music was amplified way too much for an indoor venue and inhibited any conversation while they were playing. The sets of music seemed more appropriate for a casual outdoor bar than an elegant buffet.

                                                            Dear DouglasF, Thank you for sharing your feedback and for coming to our event. I do apologize for not meeting your expectations. I definitely took notes about what needs to change and improve for next year. Hope you can give us another try, and I am hoping for a 5-starts review next time. Best regards, Leo Zaldivar

                                                            Food that should have been hot was room temperature or barely warm. Almost no healthy food selections. Ambience was poor due to limited decor. Very spartan for an Easter brunch. Staff was competent but not friendly.

                                                            Food was just extremely mediocre, the featured cocktails were mostly just mix so extremely sugary. The place is beautiful but the food, service, and drinks just don’t meet up to the standard of the scenery.

                                                            Flatbread isn't really a flat bread. It's thicker like a pizza almost. It was "okay". Deviled eggs and Ribeye were good. Cocktail barely had any alcohol in it, and it wasn't cheap. Experience was "ok". Nothing special, nothing terribly bad. Will try other restaurants next time I'm in town.

                                                            We sat outside to watch the sunset. The outdoor area was really nice. The service was extremely slow - it took 45 minutes to get our food. Food was ok - seemed overpriced for what it was. Not planning to come back

                                                            The menu listed on the website did not match the actual menu. The selection was not what we are expected and the prices were high. We were so disappointed that we did not stay and actually eat dinner at this restaurant. Menus should be updated- especially for out of town guests.

                                                            Way overpriced for the food, especially with everything being a la carte and not allowing substitutes. Didn’t even offer a bread basket. Not that $5 is a lot for bread, but when you’re paying $30+ for a meal, it should at least include bread. Didn’t include a salad either which I thought could have been included. Wouldn’t go back other than for the view. Steak was more well than the medium I asked for, chicken and grouper was dry.
