Super great environment and location. The Service was slow and confusing. It became better as the place became less busy.

They’ve raised the prices of brunch since they changed the name of the restaurant. The brunch options have been reduced, so there’s far fewer varieties of food to pull from. The brunch didn’t start being served until a good 15-20 minutes after our reservation, and the wait staff was so incredibly inconsistent. We had to wait forever to get refills on drinks, and even witnessed a waiter toss a mimosa on a customer because he was more focused on not spilling on his outfit than serving well. All in all, the quality has gone down significantly since I was previously here (when it was Loring). On top of that, COVID precautions were pretty minimal, and people without masks were around the brunch line. Super disappointing for a place I once loved and recommended to all. Will likely not be returning anytime soon, unfortunately.

Me and my friend order food and drinks using the online system within 3 minutes of eachother. Her food came pretty quick but we waited 30 minutes for our drinks. I finally asked a waiter to get them. My food came 40 minutes after ordering and she had finished her food. They should pay attention to ppl at the same table and bring the food out at the same time.

My friends and I had a Galentine's date at Gray's for the weekend brunch buffet and bottomless mimosas! We loved it. The food is great (especially for the student price!), and the mimosas certainly kept coming. The staff was also very kind and helpful. We will definitely be back again.

Gray’s doesn’t live up to the expectations set by the Loring Pasta Bar. Drinks reminded us of a college bar, food was okay. Service was mediocre, and the ambience did not match the decor. College music and lights were turned out almost full strength. Won’t be be going back for some time.

Food was delicious. Really delicious! Their food and drink order entry system is clunky and not user friendly. You order your food and drinks via your cell phone. There is no way to stagger drinks, apps or entrees so you may get an entree before an app. You need to reenter all information in your phone every time you order or reorder something - which in our case were drinks. Every time I ordered drinks I had to pull out my credit card and reenter name, card number, exp. date, etc.
We were ordering off 3 separate phones meaning we had server visits to deliver drinks to our table 3 separate times and our meals 3 separate times.
Would I come back? Definitely. The food was delicious. It requires a lot of work by the patrons to actually get it.

Food was subpar at best, nothing tasted bad but nothing was memorable and all of the food was lukewarm if not cool. Our server was not very attentive and did not seem to understand basic serving etiquette. We waited for drinks, our bottle of wine didn’t arrive until we were nearly finished with our entrees.

Was amazing. Went here for our first date seven years ago, loved it then. Love it now. Attention to detail and the environment was just absolutely perfect for a really special day. The layout is so unique and makes for really comfortable but special dining experience, and the food! Wow, the food. So tasty. The artichoke dip is to die for. They are on top of COVID stuff too, this was the first restaurant we had been to in months and felt completely safe and like everybody was aware and on top of it. Many thanks to this place.

Food was great, liked the endless mimosa's but the service was horrible. I had asked for a cup of coffee and another mimosa she came back 7 minutes later with mimosa and I never received any more service from her for the next 70 minutes . I HAD ASKED HER NAME to begin and received no answer, then I hollered for her waved to her tried calling for her with no response finally went up to the host stand and asked for some coffee after waiting over 20 minutes and he went to get it for me.

To start, I’m not sure what good making a reservation online did since they were seating people ahead of us who didn’t have one. Everyone there was very pleasant and helpful, but the quality of the food didn’t align with the cost, and please stop using syrup with artificial sweeteners. And in consideration of COVID, covering the food might be a good idea.

This was one of the best brunch buffets I have ever had! Very good choices: bacon, sausage, French toast, waffles, fruit, grain/oats, salmon, salad. It was so good! Do not sleep on Loring!!

The Chicken Piccata was absolutely fantastic, would highly, highly recommend. Perfect for a date night, the restaurant is eclectic and fascinating and just sweats cozy. The open air design and kitchen is wonderful and the live music is a pleasant addition to our delicious meal. Drink menu very good as well. I also recommend the French onion soup.

My niece just moved to the U and we decided to have dinner at the Loring Pasta Bar. We dined indoors and felt safe and comfortable. Indoor fans and table spacing made things almost seem normal. I’d highly recommend it and we will be returning soon!
