Sat down a 7:00. Food came at 8:00. Steak ordered Medium came over cooked. Kitchen Staff didn’t seem to have sense of urgency. Restaurant had a private party on roof top. Seemed to be understaffed. Came on Wednesday May 22nd night for birthday. Didn’t stay for free dessert. Head chef spent a lot of time talking with bar patrons. Waiter gave us cards for free drinks for our trouble. Will not go back.

My husband and I were in town for the weekend and stopped in for brunch. We had coffee, a white Russian, chicken waffles, beignets, pork belly hash and biscuits and gravy. I had never had pork belly before and was happy I tried it. It was very tender. The salsa mix in the hash was flavorful. The beignets were drizzled in an orange and Carmel sauce. The biscuits and gravy were heavy but flavorful. The chicken and waffles were drizzled in a Thai sweet and spicy sauce which was tasty but the waffles were a little bland. Overall the food and ambiance was exactly what we were looking for on Sunday morning.

Heard a lot about how good the food was, the upstairs outdoor patio, the indoor ambiance, the wine selection, the appetizers and most importantly, the main entrees. First the food: excellent! My wife and I shared a Caesar salad that was refreshingly different made with anchovies in the dressing. Really tasty even for my wife who generally doesn't care for them. We both opted for the burgers strangely enough and they were delicious. Even the fries were just right, the right blend of crisp and salty. Great wine selection. We were initially seated at the bar and the tender was very knowledgeable and helpful for selecting a glass of chardonnay...spot on! We opted for the upstairs outside patio, a little cool but it's been such a terrible spring that we had to. The service is the reason for 4 stars. 1) Our server, though she tried gamely just was tasked with a little too much: a lively table of 10 and several tables of two including my wife and me. Our service suffered a little bit because of it. 2) We ordered a bottle of red Rhone wine that took forever. Finally she came and said that they are out of it. By this time my wife and I decided on individual glasses so we ordered accordingly. 3) A little surprised when the bill came to find that we were charged for the missing bottle. We alerted our server and she immediately and apologetically removed it. To be fair, they really weren't her fault. All 3 in & of themselves by no means a deal breaker but still the reason for 4 and not 5 stars. With that said, definitely plan on going back. Too many good things have been said about this place to give up on it. The upstairs outdoor patio is definitely worth it too if the weather cooperates. The steaks are supposed to be outstanding so that is on the agenda as well. Great location and downstairs ambiance is warm and inviting.

Our first time at fourteensixteen. The food was good and the service even better. Our server Michael was a sweatheart, so nice and friendly. They treated my friend to a complementary dessert, carrot cake, which was presented so nicely with a candle.The manager showed us the roof top after dinner. We will certainly come again!

The food was interesting & enjoyable. The service was friendly and attentive.
However, the layout was crowded (waitstaff piled up on top of the customer buffet line). Also the price point was way high for this area & given that it was just brunch. $50 bucks per person for a brunch buffet (no, cocktails were not included) is outwardly aggressive.

I enjoyed the culotte steak with fingerling potatoes; it was one of the best steaks I ever had. My husband had the pork tenderloin with asparagus. Cooked perfectly. We've been here quite a few times and always enjoyed our meals and service. We're sorry we didn't save room for dessert!

Stylish upscale venue that hit on all cylinders. Great service, outstanding food, innovative cocktails and a nice wine list. 45 day aged NY strip was perfect. Cobb salad was one of the best I’ve had. Can’t wait to go back!!

My colleague and I had a wonderful dinner here while traveling for work. Attentive and thoughtful staff facilitated a great dining experience. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent, much better than I expected for the prices of the dishes. I didn’t plan to order dessert, but I liked my food so much I decided to. The waitstaff indicated that there was a pastry chef in house, so everything was made in the restaurant, which also helped convince me. The dessert was delicious, and I am so glad I ordered it! Closing the experience, a staff member noticed my colleague and I were leaving and went out of their way to hold open the door for us. When my work travel brings me back to this area, I will be back, especially for the rooftop seating if the weather is nice!

The restaurant has this amazing loft- style feel. The only downside to that was it had snowed the weekend before and after they took off their vinyl so it was colder than we would like. But I’m sure it would be delight in the summer.
We tried quite a bit of the entrees and starters. My suggestion if you’re going in the spring- the Wagyu meatballs are a dream.

The filet mignon was divine and the cauliflower was fantastic.
We didn’t like the chopped salad because it wasn’t enough cheese and bacon. But it was good.

Overall, I can’t wait until the weather improved so we can try the rooftop.

Food selection is pretty good. Cocktails are amazing. Unfortunately, we have been there twice and have had the unpleasant luck of having the same horrible server twice...Alethea. Must say that is I go to 1416 again and I am sat in her section, I promptly ask to be reseated. She only recommends the most expensive items on the menu. She got out drink order wrong and didn't even apologize for her mistake or for the fact that the drinks took 20 minutes! Every interaction with her felt like we were irritating her or wasting her time. Other than that I enjoy the restaurant very much and would recommend.

Brought my sister here on her first night in town. Michael made sure everything was perfect. He was the perfect blend of attentive but not intrusive. Great food and ambiance. The music seemed to be a little loud but to be fair, I never mentioned it to my server. I will become a regular here. Thank you fourteensixteen.

This was my 2nd time at fourteensixteen and I was underwhelmed. The hostesses were extremely friendly and accommodating. However, I ordered the hanger steak and the piece of meat was not edible. It looked and tasted like scraps. My husband ordered the same and his turned out beautifully. Unfortunately, he wasn’t willing to share. I thought about sending it back but our waitress literally never came back to our table except to give us the bill towards the end of the evening. She also forgot to bring my drink order. I didn’t want to make a scene since we were dining with another couple but I was extremely disappointed.
