Service was exceptional. However, 2 of our 7 entrees were over cooked and lacked proper flavor. Bummed b/c we had heard such great things about Mosaic.

Mosaic is typically awesome but I think they were having some staff issues. I highly recommend them either way it was just super slow. The food was really great.

Beautiful setting, the most comfortable couch like sitting area for my mom & I to sit and still have a view of the NCAA game. Absolutely loved the glass fixtures & decor, it was elegant but comfortable for a jeans evening out. The food was fantastic - we inhaled these insane scalloped potatoes infused with rosemary that were to die for, seriously I almost wanted some to go home! The chopped salad with salmon was perfect, the smoked salmon atop vegetables was delicious. Had a yummy bourbon drink & the key lime pie was out of this world, don’t even get me started on the flame toasted meringue perched above the pie. Loved the staff, very kind & they seemed to work together very well checking on one another to make sure no one was overwhelmed. Can’t wait to go back to this casual yet elegantly eclectic Mecca of deliciousness!

The entrees were all excellent and the service was very good too. We were very disappointed with the desserts though. The bred pudding was dry and not warm or hot. Both people in my party thought it should have been served hot with ice cream but there was no ice cream (it wasn't offered either). Another person in my party had the key lime pie and said it had far too much meringue and was not that good compared to other key lime pies.

We had a reservation - it was packed. Took over an hour to get our food even though we ordered immediately. Waitress was clearly in the weeds and must have forgotten to put our order in as people around us who game in after us got served prior to our meal. Disappointing. Most people do not have that kind of time to wait for a lunch.

We eat at Mosaic probably monthly and I regularly get the Siraca Honey Chicken Mac and Cheese. It’s been delicious almost every time. The old fashions and Poke bowls are worth the visit. Definitely recommend Mosaic to others.

We tried it for brunch. Great decor and nice wait staff but the food was lacking. The pancakes were enormous - two would have been more than enough - and they were undercooked, mushy. The French toast was better although way too much to eat for one person. The coffee was fine but I was disappointed there was no latte or cappuccino. We won’t go there for brunch again but we will give dinner a try.

We had a nice early dinner and the food was very good. The chef served the dish that we shared as a main course on two different plates, which we appreciated very much. Great presentation and tasty! Seating in the booth was uncomfortable though, as there was a lot of distance to the back of the bench and my feet didn't reach the floor (I'm 5'6" for reference). This was partially my fault, since they showed us to a table initially but I requested the more comfy-looking booth. Ha-ha. Would recommend a table to those on the medium or shorter side. :)

Disappointed, nothing on menu is labeled gluten free. When asked, was told I could have a salad. No gluten free bread options or option to have something made gluten free. Certainly wish I could eat gluten. I will go to hutch or Sedona in future. Both places go out of way for those with gluten issues.

I was extremely disappointed in my dinner; requested medium rare salmon and it was served well done. Didn't send it back as my other companions dove into their dinners with delight. Wasn't impressed with the seasonal vegetables that came with the dish either, they were overwhelming tart and sour. My check was not calculated correctly either, as I did not have one of the appetizers, but yet I was charged a 1/4 of the price and I carefully added tip, etc. to be an even number and my credit card was overcharged. (my fault, should have kept a copy of the receipt.) I would recommend Mosaic for brunch and will possibly give them another try in the near future.

Waited until the last minute to make Valentine's weekend dinner reservations, and probably struck out at about 20 restaurants before finally scoring at Mosaic. My poor planning worked out well as we would not have found this neighborhood gem otherwise.

Mosaic has a nice neighborhood atmosphere. Although a limited menu, the food was good with a good presentation. Order-takers were not necessarily the food servers. This caused some confusion when wrong order was brought to the table. It was explained that the server was on his first day. Overall, I still think it deserves another chance.

Liked the ambience and service. Disappointed in the food this time. Have enjoyed food in the past. The chicken I had added to the Kale Farro Salad was not appetizing - should have listed somewhere that the chicken is a tasteless cold cutlet and not grilled. Painful to pay $20 for a salad that was not very good.

The service was first class from the bar to the table. The food came out over cooked and slightly cold, but they owned up to it immediately and comped the meal. per the chef, it was unacceptable. Because of this, we will certainly be back. Thats how to run a restaurant!
