    First time there we went at 6:30 and it wasn’t crowded ordered a new app called eggplant parm fritters was expecting fritters (lightly fried dough with eggplant) received meatball sized fried balls no cheese inside and hardly any sauce we then ordered wraps one Shrimp and one salmon unfortunately the shrimp wrap was cold not a hot one But the salmon was hot Mac and cheese on the side was not tasty at all but the fries were yummy best part was the wine and the music

    Had a disappointing incident where the server spilled a tray of drinks at our table and guests had to sit in a sticky mess or wear wine on their clothes. While apologetic and realizing that accidents happen, they could have at least comped us for that round of drinks. Food was excellent!

    Michaela did a fabulous job! She anticipated our needs and was super attentive to our group. There were 11 of us and no one ran out of water, our appetizer plates were cleared promptly and our meals arrived in a surprisingly short amount of time. I would recommend HOME to everyone! Great place. All of the staff were friendly.

    It was an okay place to eat. Food wasn’t quite as good as I expected. Gluten free menu on their website apparently is outdated according to waitress. Probably won’t be returning. However the ambiance of the place is pretty nice! Nice vibe!

    First our waitress was very nice and did her best during a crowded time with what appeared to be not enough help. We had the eggplant appetizer which was delicious. I returned our drinks after they made the wrong ones, and returned my scallop entree because the vegetables were not thoroughly cooked ( and I will add presentation was terrible). One of the guests had a plastic top of a squeeze bottle in her entree- in fact right on top and easily seen. Music was very loud so we had to talk above it (although it was nice jazz). All in all, disappointed and won't be going back. Too bad because they have a wide variety of gluten free options.

    I was very disappointed with the blackened salmon salad. There was no flavor and the kale was very dry. Also our water was never refilled. The eggplant fritters were very good as well general tso's Brussel sprouts.

    First time visiting and everything was excellent! Loved the whole vibe just walking in. We shared the pork belly Rueben with fries and stuffed shrimp Mac. The dessert was spring roll cannolis with Ashley’s icecream. I couldn’t pick a favorite- everything was awesome. Will be returning.

    Very disappointed. Mac and cheese came out lukewarm, turkey burger was right out of Costco (definitely frozen mass produced). It looked like a sausage patty. Fried dough chips were good. The dipping sauces arrived in plastic (to go) covered containers. The 2nd entree (coconut shrimp) didn't have much coconut flavor to it. $100 for 2 people. 2 apps, 2 dinners, 1 cocktail and 1 soda. But hey, they have a decent following. It's just not a match for us.

    We were in Branford CT while our Winnebago Revel was getting a lithium battery upgrade, and stopped in here based on reviews. It was busy in the bar area and quite in the main dining room. Good food, with a broad menu and great Gluten free options. Recommended.

    Group of 6. Our wait person was great! Attentive and helpful. We all had a cocktail off the menu. They all sounded much better than they tasted. Bar needs to work on their mixology skills. Food was meh. I had the pulled pork tacos, meat was bland, toppings were ok, tortilla tasted like it was straight out of the refrigerator and had not been warmed at all. Very soggy already when it arrived at the table and fell apart to the point where it needed utensils to be eaten. Abandoned the tortilla and turned it into a salad. Everyone else at the table said their food wasn't bad but wasn't memorable. We go out once a month and we probably won't be going back to Home any time soon. Too bad as it has a lot of potential.

    Interesting food choices; many food items on menu seem higher in sodium limiting choices for me; service was pleasant but too many staff members came by trying to take our plates despite having food on them; my dessert ( ab brownie) was too sweet & not as strong chocolate flavor

    Our reservation was late- and we arrived at 9:20 on a Saturday night. Only one other table and bar patrons remained. We were served by the bartender - who was attentive and charming. We loved the fried brussel sprouts and the french fries but disappointed in the scallop roll and fried green tomato sandwich. The menu had so many interesting sounding options but were generally unhappy with our choices.

    I don’t usually write reviews, but I was surprised - The CDC is currently recommending masks indoors for all people (vaccinated and unvaccinated), and not one server or employee was wearing a mask in the restaurant. It’s the first restaurant we have been to that isn’t masking right now. I work in healthcare, so feel like it’s important not to expose myself to Delta anymore than I have to. This isn’t a judgement of the people working, or quality of food. I just wish I’d known before I went, so I’m writing to tell people.
