    Was an incredibly long dining experience….they could of turned tables a lot quicker….server was great but food took sooooo long. Didn’t seem that busy either.
    Forgotten TonicResponded 3 days ago
    Stacy, we apologize for any inconvenience during your visit. Our goal is to provide a relaxed dining experience, but it seems we missed the mark for you. To help us understand better, did you have a prior engagement after dinner, or did you inform your server you were looking for a quicker meal? Typically, an average dinner for two takes an hour and a half, and we're sorry if this felt too long. We're glad you enjoyed the hospitality and hope to improve your experience next time on historic Aviles St. Your feedback is appreciated!

    We waited 30 minutes for a table and service was slow. We enjoyed our meals (chicken sandwich and shrimp and grits). Had a very good old fashioned while waiting for our table. Cool interior and ambience.

    Lovely service, cute atmosphere. Beet and carrot soup too spicy and my shrimp and grits was over salted. Nice touch on Mothers Day as all Moms received a free cake.
    Forgotten TonicResponded on May 15, 2024
    Thank you for sharing your Mothers Day experience with us! We're glad you enjoyed the service and atmosphere at Forgotten Tonic. It’s great to hear that the complimentary cake for moms added a nice touch to your visit. However, I'm sorry to hear that the beet and carrot soup was too spicy and the shrimp and grits were over-salted. Did you have a chance to mention this to your server or one of our managers? We always aim to rectify any issues right away to ensure our guests leave completely satisfied. We value your feedback and hope to perfect your next dish with us!
