We initially were put at a table that wobbled and was too close to the bar service. A terrible table can make for a terrible dining experience. We asked to move and was immediately switched to a table that was much more conducive to a wonderful dinner. The food was great. Our server was not very attentive, although we did notice the other weight staff was very attentive to their tables. We will be going back, but will ask them when we get there that they do not put us in that same original spot. I’m pretty sure it was the worst table in the house.

It was my first time there with my boyfriend and we love it, it’s so beautiful, the food omg it’s amazing, everything clean, all to employees very careful, using masks, it has a big espace inside, so the tables are not close and even a outside space, we were extremely happy with our experience! I really recommend it! For sure I’ll back more times !

this is our second time in 4 1/2 yrs to Mosaic. I thought it couldn't have been as bad as I remembered. I was wrong. First off, the server was great (!) and the beignets were very tasty. Then, brunch came. My hubby & I split the short rib omelet, my son got the bacon skillet, and my daughter had the pancakes with a side of bacon. I noticed right away the eggs were ALL the same, had the same texture, and seemed to be out of a box. The short rib was not incorporated into the eggs, rather folded inside of them with oily cheddar cheese gluing it together and sprinkled on top. I did not eat it - gave the meat to my son after a few bites. The potatoes on the side were lukewarm. The bacon was the best thing on the skillet - hash browns were almost burnt on top, but mushy and underdone on the bottom, with no seasoning - and tasted like they were cooked on a griddle with a fishy taste. Eggs were the same "fake" ones I had in my omelet, down to the color. I told him to stop eating it. The side of bacon was perhaps the star of the meal.

The new outdoor patio was a hit. Food still seems to be a big miss. Over salted, not cooked properly and just average. This was our second try.

Very good. They accommodated my special seating request and gave me the necessary privacy I needed to complete my business transaction and still provide excellent service. Well done!

Usually I always have a good experience here. Today our waitress did not seem to want to be there, and almost seemed irritated that we only ordered sodas and a light brunch. She could have been having an off day, but it didn’t make us want to stay any longer than we needed to.

In the past three weeks, I have dined at Mosaic several times during the pandemic.. The team follows all CDC recommendations to reduce COVID risk, the team is always on their game, and the food good.. Thank you.. We know how hard the pandemic has been on restaurants and Mosaic is doing its best during challenging times.

Mosaic is a favorite place to relax at the end of the workweek. We enjoy weekend dinner or brunch, and on occasion, will order take-out when our schedules are tight during the business week. The choice of indoor or outdoor seating provides a professionally casual, comfortable, and friendly atmosphere. The menu is creative, and the food quality and service are top-notch.

First time eating here (brunch) and will definitely be back. Our server was fantastic, the food was out of this world (try the fried oyster appetizer!) and the cocktails were on point. We will definitely be back!

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!
