Contemporary American

Libertine is Uptown’s rec room – a neighborhood bar where the food and drink are serious, but everything else is a game. From skee-ball and foosball to board games, ping pong and Jenga, Libertine was created for people who want more than a TV screen for entertainment. Here singles, couples and groups come together for a wide range of games and activities combined with kick-ass drinks and a menu that puts freezer-to-fryer bar food to shame. The range of activities and breadth of the menu make Libertine a true neighborhood hangout.

                                                  The new, condensed Libertine menu was really underwhelming. With one a couple of tables full, our server forgot one of the orders at our table. They were quick to hurry us along through our meal, which was interesting for such an empty restaurant on a Friday. Food was OK when it arrived.

                                                  My friends and I definitely were the top of the age bell curve , but we had a really good time. Nice venue, good food, and the staff could not have been nicer. Really great that there is a place to go Uptown again 🤗

                                                  This was my first time at Libertine. I have Celiac Disease and our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and seemed trained on their procedures. I had the endless mimosa. Wasn’t overpowering and was enjoyable. I ate the Classic breakfast (eggs, bacon, hash browns). No reaction. Wasn’t overly busy. We stayed for about 4 hours and it was extremely enjoyable. Definitely will come back again for Endless Mimosas and brunch!

                                                  I got the avocado toast and a mimosa and it was not very good. The mimosa was so warm and not refreshing, and the avocado toast was so soft and mushy, it was guacamole on top of thick soft bread. The bacon was good and the hash browns were okay. Wouldn’t get again.

                                                  I went here for brunch and everyone loved the brunch menu. The value for the meals is great since the portions are pretty big. The drinks were good and the atmosphere was fun with all of the games to play!

                                                  I enjoy the libertine for Sunday morning brunches and bottomless mimosas, but really any other time it's a bit of a disappointment. When making a reservation I forgot they have basically nothing on the menu that is gluten free and literally nothing that is/can be made vegan (or meatless) that isn't still very expensive. Bummer of a time.

                                                  The service is very very slow so don’t expect to get in and get out. The waitress made you scream your order as she never moved. The refills of bottomless mimosas was slow so never got full value of $18 that’s for sure. The food was dry and not great

                                                  Came back for the lamb but it wasn't on the menu anymore. Place is now a bar/lounge.

                                                  Went in the morning for breakfast, was one of two tables at 11am. Was a good restaurant but didn’t live up to the hype I had heard from others. Pretty middle of the road. No complaints but excellent service from our waitress.

                                                  The brunch food was mediocre. New cook may be needed. We will not return to the establishment, we have given them too many chances to improve the food and have been disappointed time after time.

                                                  We've been to Libertine several times for dinner (and always enjoyed it), but this was the first time for brunch. The mimosas with juices besides orange were a great option, and the Kickstarter was another good brunch drink. We ordered the breakfast burrito and the biscuits and gravy for our entrees; both were very good. And the poached eggs on the biscuits/gravy were cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back for brunch (and dinner).

                                                  The salmon juicy-Lucy was delicious. This place seems to start their 'bar hours' by putting on the music at about 9:45pm, which might be a good thing to know in case you're there for dinner and it runs late.

                                                  Only issue I had was that we made the reservation well in advance and yet we were placed at an awkward table. There was 7 or 8 of us and they placed 2 circle tables together and it just didn't work. Besides that, food and bottomless mimosas were great

                                                  We dined at 6 p.m. on a Saturday night. By this time the adjacent bar (beer pong game underway) was very loud. On the restaurant side the music was ear-splitting. The server promised to turn it down, but there was little effect. On the plus side, the server was otherwise very good and the brisket Rueben was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Bottom line: I'll patronize the restaurant again, but only on a take-out basis.

                                                  Service was not great, slow, it wasn’t busy we were there at 2 in the afternoon. I had a Bloody Mary and it was the worst Bloody Mary I’ve ever had. Don’t get the Bloody Mary or the Mary magdelene whatever it’s called!

                                                  Totally changed from dinner a year ago. Basically just bar food and drinks. Server was very nice and apologetic. But we went somewhere else because it was a birthday event.

                                                  Really bad server who was inattentive and rarely even around. The food was hardly edible and very salty. One of the biggest wastes of $50 I've ever experienced.

                                                  Waited 65 minutes for simple food order. It was so loud. Didn't enjoy it. Good place to hang if you have a lot of time. Not great if you need to enjoy a good conversation and move along quickly.

                                                  Went for brunch. Food was pretty good, but unfortunately the poor service overshadowed it. I was waiting for my friends to arrive for almost 10 minutes and was never greeted by the waitress. She came to our table a few minutes after my friends arrived and she looked as though she had just woken up. We ordered coffees, which she forgot about, and she wasn't writing our orders down as she took them, so she had to have us repeat our orders multiple times. She was also confrontational when she sensed we were annoyed, but not apologetic. It's a shame because the last time I went there for dinner it felt much more upscale. (That was before an Xbox and a couch were setup in the dining area.) Now it seems to be catered towards college students. Bottom line, food was good, but not good enough to endure the service again, in my opinion. We're regular brunchers, and won't be back.
