It was great from entering the restaurant until leaving..very attentive bar tender wait staff
There was 3 of us we have no complaints!!
We arrived for our reservation time. Immediately the waitress told us that they needed the table by 6. When I looked puzzled, she said “I know you have a reservation but we need the table by six.” Having waited tables in my youth, I was blown away. Normally you would let customers eat and then if they were lingering too long then inform them that they were welcome to move to the bar or come back for a visit but the table was needed. Not the first thing you say. We sat down and she started going through the available cocktails. Told us that she would give us a minute which turned into ten minutes while she ran around taking care of tables both inside and out. There were several staff members standing around just watching her. She finally returned to take our drink order and then proceeded to go behind the bar and make our drinks along with drinks for her other tables all herself while the two bartenders stood watching. We are now over 20 minutes into our time and she hasn’t even came over with our drinks. One of the bartenders must have picked up on my glances and came over to check on us. I mentioned my concerns and another young lady delivered our drinks. Now we were 30 minutes in and no sign of her coming to take our order. I decided to leave and go eat at another restaurant. You can’t put people in a time clock and then take forever to actually wait on them. Just poor service and poor management to allow a waitress to behave that way.
Amazing night, &amazing server Vanessa ❤️
This was our first time there and it will not be the last time. It was a great place to eat and hang out. I highly recommend it!
Great food and service
Erica was great! food and drinks were amazing! Mom and i will be returning.
Very nice place with great atmosphere and great bar selection in a very cool old building for a date.
Food was AMAZING, loved the vibe & ambiance. However, I would have liked to feel my server’s presence a bit more. Besides taking our order and serving us our food, she was nowhere to be found for refills, napkins, the bill, etc. Overall great experience, highly recommend for a quaint, chill-vibe brunch.
This is my 3rd Hearsay visit where the service was incredibly slow. Meals arrived at different times. Because of the wait, eggs were overcooked. We reserved for outside and they didn't have outside seating available when we arrived. We were at the top of a busy stair by a bar and wanted to be socially distanced.
The food was good. But I will not return. Also, their menu said mimosa was complementary. They charged me $12 for it - and I had 1 small glass with no refills.
Value is not there. Covid service is missing. And overall service is lagging. They clearly favor large groups and ignore smaller tables.
Ampostsphere was fantastic , service was impeccable and food was Amazing... highly recommend the Empire Strikes Back ...
We went for HRW and it was our first time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cocktails were really good. Our food was really good and I loved the historic charm of the building.
This was my first time at Hearsay Market Square and it did not disappoint! We went for brunch and were seated upstairs. The sweet and spice bacon was delicious. It was served with maple syrup and blue cheese dressing on the side. The bacon itself had red pepper flakes to give it just the right about of kick and the maple syrup provided the sweet. I have the Wagu Chicken Fried Steak with bacon brussel sprouts and potatoes. The brussel sprouts were a hit at the table. I ended up sharing them with 3 other people! We also were able to order lattes and cappuccinos from the coffee place next door. They were awesome as well. Overall a great experience and I can't wait to go back!
First of all we went during these trying times and we could not have felt safer - the restaurant is taking every precaution to make sure you have an enjoyable experience.
The food was excellent and the service was impeccable.
The Asst General Manager Vincent was awesome! We will definitely be back - so many other dishes to try!!!
It was a nice experience, our server Erika was very attentive and made sure we were satisfied. The mimosas were also very tasty!
It was good but my wife had some allergy after the dinner.
Had a wonderful time. Great staff. Great food. Will definitely be back.
Delicious Restaurant Weeks menu in a very safe environment.
The dish I ordered- Tuscan chicken pasta- was kind of plain but it’s was okay. I would not order this again. The service was amazing and the atmosphere was great I would go back again but I would order something different.
Great Customer Service
Very safe in this environment. Waitstaff was great. Food excellent. Would recommend
Late reservation at 10:30pm, the kitchen was still open and the food was great.
Had a wonderful time at Hearsay per usual.. awesome date night atmosphere! Love the craft cocktails especially the south side for life and the sazerac! The manager josh was very welcoming and polite as walked in, he also had some incredible drink/food recommendations! Will be back for another date night soon, honestly can’t wait, 10/10 would recommend.
This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant and every experience has been wonderful! Great variety of food, delicious wines, friendly service, and relaxing atmosphere. We will be back for next date night!
The most amazing Father’s Day meal ever. We loved every bit. The best drinks customized by Erica
Excellent food and service.
Fantastic food and great hygiene and social distancing from the crew
Usually this place is packed but since it was a COVID-19 Wednesday it was basically empty. Food was still amazing as always.
Erika took really good care of us! I got the bread pudding french toast & it was super tasty! FYI mimosas are $12 for the first glass, 50 cents each for the next however many so not bottomless, but still decently priced if you get a few. We sat on the patio so homeless people did approach us but the man who was hosting made sure to handle it. Really good experience overall
Nice place to go. Will definitely go back.
I haven't been to this restaurant is a while and forgot how much I just ADORE it. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable!
This is a Nice Place. I think I'll go back sometime.
Great food great service! Staff was amazing and helpful!
Anthony was our server and he was amazing. He provided us with the specials and always checked in on us. The food was really good as well as the drinks. Will be coming back
The food and drinks were great. Our server was extremely kind and checked on us frequently. We had a wonderful time and would definitely be back.
Great food and beautiful building. Only complaint was the noise level was a bit high. But worth it!
My cousin and I enjoyed. Always great service and always delicious food!
Second trip here and even better than the first. The French toast is scrumptious!! The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. And the live band added to the atmosphere .
Birthday lunch was great. Ceviche is fresh and we enjoyed ahi tuna sandwich. Good service as well and wasn’t very busy.
