We came to Mosaic to celebrate a 20th Anniversary lunch and wanted outside seating due to COVID 19. It was so lovely. The heat lamps took out the early afternoon chill. Server was attentive and demonstrated friendly customer service. The vegetarian options were delicious. Very generous portion sizes. We will be back again. Menu had a nice variety of choices. Thank you!

The waitress was lovely, the food was so so good. However they do not recognize open table requests on seating preferences and the manager was rude when I asked to move to an open table to meet my request. The attitude given to me kind of ruined what could have been a chilled afternoon.

Two of their dishes (at least) were absolutely exquisite - the artichokes (I've never seen them served this way - pan-fried but not greasy) and the bread pudding with butterscotch sauce. All of that topped off by truly friendly and efficient service! My Lady Friend loves this place and now, after my first visit, I understand why.

Hubby and I have Friday as our date night. We hadn’t been to Mosaic for a while and were hoping for outside dining, however, it was a little too crowded so we ate at our physically distanced table inside. Menu was available either through the web or paper for those who prefer that method. We split the mini crab cake appetizer, ordered a Cobb salad with chicken for my husband and a sandwich with lamb for me. I prefer my meat to be on the rare side and by requesting no cooking, that was perfect. I brought half of the sandwich home and had it for lunch the next day. We will definitely not leave it so long to return. A snafu meant our meal was delayed, and this was handled extremely well by management who was most apologetic.

Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and returned to our table multiple times. The menu was diverse with vegan, Mexican and Southern selections. My curry chicken soup was excellent with a perfect melding of flavors. The green salad was generous with the dressing on the side. I would recommend this restaurant. This was my third visit.

The food was ok. I had the airline chicken and it was over cooked and the sweet potatoes were hard. The soup was yummy but not enough to write home about. The location and the ambiance are great. The floor in the restaurant is VERY slippery. So be mindful when walking around, especially on a wet day. I would go back but not my first choice

The food was fresh and delicious, perfect for my keto diet. My family couldn't stop raving about the brussel sprouts appetizer and our waiter provided excellent service. We ended up at Mosaic just by chance but will definitely return!

A very nice date spot. Quiet and intimate inside. Outside dining being first come first serve was packed. I got a half glass of vigonier for $9 and 4 fried artichokes for $10. So not the best spot for a lunch on a budget, but a great place for a fancy date.

It was our first time back at Mosaic since the pandemic started. They have done a great job situating tables so that you are adequately social distanced. The food was great as usual and our server was friendly and efficient. A favorite restaurant!

Great ambience, clients loved the food and it was their first visit. My steak came out too rare, was recooked and was still very rare. Management handled it very appropriately and more than made up for the situation which left our evening on a high. Great overall experience!

Food was good, mostly. My guest ordered the salmon sandwich. Not much goat cheese on it, and the toast was hard to cut (she ate it with knife and fork instead of picking it up as a regular sandwich fare). The coffee didn’t taste the same, and seemed bitter and strong. They tried to make it right, and I give the waiter kudos for trying to make it right. Just so-so this visit.

I hope this was just a bad day for the kitchen, but the entree I ordered, a quiche, was so oversalted that I couldn't eat more than a few bites. My companion sent her eggs benedict back: the eggs were overcooked and the chickpea fritters underneath them were also oversalted. I should have sent mine back but I just don't do that. It's a great menu so I hope it was just a one-off. I asked the server to have the chef taste my unfinished quiche. It tasted like someone had put snow melter in it.

We had a very lovely dinner on the patio near a heat lamp. We enjoyed half price wine Wednesday. The fries were dangerous and the best of the year.
