    So we were sat at a couch for our dinner. A couch. With a small coffee table for 4 people to eat dinner. This made things quite uncomfortable to say the least. We decided to not have dinner and just get the charcuterie and drinks- the quality of those made up for the extremely unpleasant seating. Our waitress Kait was nice. I would come back but I would definitely call and clarify we want to sit at a real table for dinner for our reservation. I’m not sure if I know anyone who would want to eat dinner at a restaurant on a couch.

    Make a reservation for a weekend night only to be sat at a wobbly kid-sized table next to a drafty slider door and the most uncomfortable chairs. Food was good. But we were counting the moments to when we would move on to some place more comfortable.

    I usually love eating at Knoop and maybe it was just an off night, but the pretzels were a little over cooked, the puff pastry small plate was dry and stale, and the carrot cake was very stale, not edible. A little sad since I love this place.

    The seating was very uncomfortable. A small low table with too tall of chairs made for an uncomfortable experience. The drinks were interesting but expensive, food was average.

    The food at Knoop is fantastic. You can tell the head chef is involved in creating fun and fresh recipes. However, service was slower and none of the bathrooms worked.

    Very cool spot. I don't think this would be my dinning choice. I'll certainly be back for socializing as the space and servers are very good. I do not rate this very highly as the food was smh! My wife had the walleye which was uncharacteristically very fishy tasting. I had the waygu sliders. The little buttered bun is nice, but that is all I could taste. The burger itself was completely tasteless. Not good when the only thing we wanted to finish was our fries.

    The chairs at our table we're better suited for lounging, rather than sitting up at a table to eat. Our food was good but when served was barely warm, not hot. Our server was wonderful, she was attentive and friendly.

    Was disappointed by our Knoop experience! The food was mediocre, drinks were good, but the WORST part was they kept the patio open when the weather was in the 30s. We were seated right by an open patio door and were FREEZING the entire night. Unfortunately that ruined the night for us.

    We were excited to go and try it out. However, we got our food and unfortunately the shrimp were bad and I ended up having to go to the bathroom ….. ! (Came back out). We told the waitress and the Manager came back and said i took off the food. Nobody even apologized. We had a very unpleasant experience and will not recommend this place to anyone.

    Worst dining experience ever, we sat for 10 minutes before being greeted by our server. Then, she finally came over to take our drink order and said she would be by with waters. 25 minutes later and still no drinks or waters. Tables around us seated after us were already receiving their appetizers at this point. We spoke with our waitress, who didn’t seem concerned. We ended up leaving and going elsewhere. Very disappointing as we were looking forward to trying Knoop!
