Service was speedy and with a smile. Waitress recommendations were spot on! Best mushroom soup ever‼️
When our order came, it was wrong (not the first time). Portions were very small. Grilled chicken bowl tasty but nothing special. Pricey for what you get. Portions used to be bigger....
Our food was fantastic and, along with our kind and attentive waitress, made our trip to Great Maple live up to our expectations!
The stand out part of the experience for me was the staff. They were very accommodating and on it. I appreciate that more than anything. A great place for families and large groups.
Went for my birthday. We arrive about 3-5 minutes late for our reservation, but even with that our table still took 10 minutes to prepare for us. The waitress we had did not stop at our table often. It took 15 minutes in between her stops, which might normally be fine, but different people in our group of 6 arrived at different times so the first people there ordered drinks and they were brought to the table, and then the rest of our party arrived and it took the waitress 15+ minutes to stop by the table again to take those drink orders and for us to order food. It was clearly busy, but the restaurant looked very well staffed so I’m not sure why the service was so bad. Would probably go again, but not with a large group. Food was good
Trendy spot. Great beignets with a lemon sauce! Food was very satisfying with good portions!
I enjoy the menu and overall look of this location compared to the one in Hillcrest
Great food with lots of healthy options.
We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and got checked in 15 minutes after our reservation time. We waited another half an hour and one customer leaving told us that they waited ONE hour to get service at their table! So we left and end up eating at Nordstrom’s restaurant 😉
Fantastic food, good ambience, central location, but our server was distracted or something. We ordered 3 donuts, and were brought out 6, plus a bag of beignets. Nicely, we were given those complimentarily. Maybe it was too noisy and he couldn't tell what we were ordering, not sure. Also one of our party ordered a turkey patty and got ground beef, which would've totally ruined her day, if she hadn't had two of us test it first.
Great food and decor. Service was a bit slow but not a deal breaker. Their “sweet options” (pancakes, french toast, doughnuts) are really what you need to try here.
Best salmon ever- moist n tasty
Really cute restaurant with great ambiance, but I just found the food to be very lackluster.
The food was excellent and the service we had was even better. Loved the stylish decor! We will definitely be back.
While the food was good, the atmosphere was very unappealing, down a long stairway and chopped up visually inside the restaurant. After taking our order and bringing drinks. we sat for 30 minutes without our appetizer and finally complained. The whole lack of organization by the staff was troublesome. This was very disappointing as we had enjoyed two meals at the Hillcrest location in the past and looked forward to trying the UTC site.
Food is great. Interesting menu. Great wait staff. Hard to find the restaurant at the mall. Very noisy at lunch on a Saturday.
Loved the veggie burger, BLT and turkey burger...we saw the fired chicken and donuts go by and it looked yummy. We did indulge in the beignets with lemon curd...incredibly tasty.
Eat here , it’s great.
Lunch there was great! One suggestion: when sitting outside, try to not to get the northwest corner table. There's a half pane of glass that is open to Genesee avenue and the road noise can be quite loud, combined with the flies that are coming after the scrumptious food. Other than that we had a fantastic experience!
The food is delicious! Great place for a lunch!
Thought this would be a similar experience to dining at the hillcrest location, but it's completely different. No personality, the dishes are different. It's noisy and cold and the food wasn't that good. I'll only be going to the Hillcrest spot.
Serving brunch 7 days a week. Always busy but never wait more than 10-12 minutes for your table. Friendly staff, clean restaurant and the food is from heaven - it’s that good!! Huge portions so don’t be afraid to split, you will not go hungry. There’s something for everyone. Coffee is fresh and strong.
Amazing food and vibe!
Great food and atmosphere. Loved the choices for breakfast or brunch. When the construction is all done this place will be rocking.
Great food and excellent service.
Kylie was a great server! We had never been to the restaurant before and she gave us great suggestions and add ons to our meal.
We have recently relocated back to SD, and we've already been to Great Maple four times! The food is crazy good and fresh, the staff is nice and it's in a great location. This past weekend, a couple brought their lovely dog in and they were seated next to us. Our autistic teen is terrified of dogs, and the staff worked quickly to resolve the issue without upsetting either party, which we greatly appreciated.
FYI, getting the Breakfast Smash with chorizo instead of pork sausage is a life changing experience. Thank me later.
Ordered brunch veggie scramble; asparagus was tough; dish looked unappetizing; too much fingerling potatoes
The food was good but not special. I think I would have been more satisfied with a turkey burger and a salad. I didn't think the meal was worth more than $30. I can get a great great meal for $30 at Urban Plates where the food seems very healthy.
Great food on a Sunday afternoon, very quiet and laid back, also pretty relaxing. Loved the ribs!
Service was slow despite not being busy at 3pm. However, they realized that I was not happy with service, and the manager was very nice and professional, and offered her apologies. She did make it up to us with incentives for us to return.
Great place. Great food. Great service. Grilled chicken salad is a must. Healthy and filling.
Food was delicious and the plating was beautiful. Wait Staff was very attentive. Fun place for any meal!
We like Great Maple and decided to try the UTC location. It’s a nice restaurant but the food we had wasn’t as good as we’ve had at the other location.
Nice place. Noise ambient.
Usually Great Maple (UTC and Hillcrest locations) are great. However our recent experience (yesterday) at the UTC Great Maple was very disappointing. The service was incredibly slow and unattentive (they took at least 15 minutes, probably more, to greet us at our table and to give us drinks). They also never cleared our plates after the initial apps. Not sure what was going on there. They were nice enough, but we felt like we could've gotten up and left and no one would have noticed or cared. The water guy was great, though.
Las Donas espectaculares
From ambiance, to food and service. It better than what I had expected. Our server was attentive, offered to move us when the sun was in our face. Informed us about the emergency light that went off which was due to a test. We went to try out their restaurant week menu. The mister ordered the Truffled deviled eggs and the Salted Caramel Pork Ribs, my friend and I ordered the Maple Glazed Salmon, I did the Mini Modern Caesar and she did the Cup of Today's Soup. Everything was super delish.
Excellent food. Great for brunch! Great service as well. Recommend calling ahead or making a reservation. The restaurant is very popular.
Good food and good service! We were seated outside and it will be a lot nicer once the construction on the street is done, but it didn't bother us too much.
Haven’t come across a diner in SD that can boast a menu or ambiance like that!!... highly recommend!
Loved the fish tacos and my friend loved the grilled chicken bowl!! Lovely time!
