    Great food- casual but elegant. They had live jazz mysic on the Saturday night we went! Loved the pickle tower, broccoli ceasar, and scallops. Kids loved a cheese pizza.

    Visited for happy hour on a Thursday and was very surprised to find it pretty much empty. My friend and I had our pick of seating at the bar and then later at a table when it was time for dinner. I ordered a tasty Cabernet while my friend ordered the Espresso Martini from the happy hour menu which lasts until 7pm! For dinner, I ordered the Sausage & Broccolini pizza and my friend ordered the Pork Chop. We both loved our meals. The pizza was one of the best I’ve had in a while and it was huge. Definitely leftovers. The service was stellar! I’ll be back!

    Everything was delicious especially the squash hummus. We’ve tried Kneads for brunch and loved it and dinner turned out to be amazing as well!! Love all of their food and pastries you cannot go wrong with anything.

    I have been to this establishment several times but on this occasion everything went wrong. Waited for a table after having a reservation, service was horrible and the food took forever and was thrown together after waiting for more than 45 minutes for sandwiches.

    DISASTER. Out of many menu items. Only found out they didn't have quiche after one entrée was delivered. How do you run out of quiche - easiest thing to have ready and prepared???? Sent back food so my friend and I could eat together. Shakshuka was supposed to have eggs up but were hard yolks. Spoke to the manager and while he apologized he asked what we wanted from him...I believe the customer service handbook says something like comp a drink or meal. Entire lunch was comped. It was just one misstep after another. This is definitely a one and done. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.

    They are still working on service quality. They served my hot entree but didn’t notice they forgot the other person’s cold entree. Not well organized. Had to find someone to get cold entree while the hot entree got cold. The salad eventually came. They offered to refry my cold chicken! No thanks ! Server said they’d make it up to us but didn’t adjust the bill or offer any service recovery Manager was very nice when I told him later

    This is an amazing place for breakfast and lunch. I tried it for dinner, and I thin is good but I prefer the morning atmosphere. However, the service is outstanding and the wine as well. The waiter went the extra mile to make us deek welcome during the all evening. We'll done!

    Amazing! Love their bakery and lunch and tried dinner for the first time. They knocked it out of the park! The butternut squash hummus was otherworldly and the gnocchi was delectable. A new favorite spot!

    Table server did not go over special items In dessert case to enjoy at table. Menu had Turkey Ruben listed with all ingredients but did not mention melted cheese on top(?), so only option is to eat with a fork& knife! No 1/2 salad and sandwich options was disappointing.

    Great experience with a group of 6. Manager noticed we were celebrating a birthday and brought over a complimentary tray of goodies that was delish. First time there and will definitely return! Have already recommended it to others!

    Fantastic food. Great environment. Would highly recommend. The bread is out of this world. Our server was so sweet. Other reviews were right in that service was slow (just due to being understaffed) but we didn’t mind at all. It’s nice to not be rushed, to be honest. We went back in the am to buy a few loafs of bread. Would highly recommend

    Phyllis was so kind and informative! We loved her energy so much. Our waitress and other waiters (who passed by) were also very kind. The energy in this place was phenomenal. We will definitely return soon 💞 the almond croissant 🥐 was my fav along with the espresso martini! Thank you 🙏🏽

    We had high expectations based on the food photos from social media. Dinner did not disappoint. It was not crowded so the ambiance, low noise level and staff were easy to appreciate. The tempura vegetables were light and crispy, the bread was high quality and the duck and cioppino entrees were solid. Surprised there were only two desserts on the menu. More sweets in the cases but we weren’t offer those… a bit confusing. Overall great value for the quality. Will definitely return.

    The restaurant was empty. The restaurant had many tables but only 3 had patrons for a weekend. I think the manager was our server, the bartender and the chef! They are definitely short-staffed. Food was okay - it wasn't terrible, but there are many other restaurants around so we probably wouldn't come back.

    I have been there three times now. Food is always delicious but the service is not great-very slow. Slow enough that I'd plan accordingly and choose somewhere else if you have any plans or need to be anywhere else.
