The Thai shrimp appetizer is scrumptious and they Gem Caesar salad is fresh and delicious. My friends really like their burgers and they are beautifully displayed.

With a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian diners in our party, the menu offered creative and flavorful options for all. And the service was excellent. I would say “narrative. is fine dining for Everyone!”

We truly enjoyed our daughter’s birthday dinner @ Narrative….What a special restaurant with an outstanding menu and excellent service. The only issue we had is that it was quite chilly sitting by the window! Not sure what can be done about that?!? We’ll definitely be back!

The food was good and the service was great. Our waiter has been working at narrative since it opened (pre-pandemic), which I see as a great thing - goes to show you the place takes care of their workers and the workers believe in the concept. The service you get with your food is a part of how good the food tastes. The food was delicious. I loved the cookies for dessert - a must to order with whatever you select. The wine list is expansive and balanced.

Service was so bad and has never been that great for such a highend hotel. Literally order iced tea twice and got watered down tea no ice filled to the brim. Ask for 2 glasses of ice for both of us after waiting 15 minutes for the iced tea and they brought that of which I had to grab empty glasses from another table and pour out half the tea to put the ice in. Then they forgot the appetizer and brought it to us after we were halfway through the meal. They was only 5 tables of people and 2 servers and they still couldn’t get it right. Very disappointing for me and my client. Never again!

Friends who moved away several years ago were in town to visit and I wanted to meet at a new place in town and chose Narrative based on what I saw on Open Table. We were all throughly delighted! The atmosphere,service and food were as good or better than some of our other favorites. We will definitely return.

Narrative did a fantastic job for our dinner. A fire alarm went off mid-meal, totally out of their control. Had to leave for about 15 mins, so of course our entrees got cold. Once we returned the waiter told us they would replace our meals, they comped the entrees and threw in a dessert. Perfectly handled by management!
On top of that, the short ribs were excellent…very tender. And my wife really enjoyed the scallops she ordered. Loved the bits of chorizo included.
Our waiter, Dawson, was relatively new but did a very nice job, was super pleasant and worked to make up for the disrupted dinner.
Nice job Narrative…we will for sure return!

Food was delicious (shrimp & grits, and hanger steak entrees).
The Manhattan was thoroughly enjoyed.
It's an open space with the bar and dining area so it's a bit loud, but can still carry on a conversation easily.

Very nice experience. For appetizers, we had the Lobster Corn dog and Fried Green Tomatoes. Both excellent. We both had Hanger Steak for our entree. Very tasty. The Sriracha Brussels Sprouts were outstanding. Our server was personable and suggestive when asked what to order, as well as providing good service. All in all a very enjoyable experience. I recommend Narrative, and would definitely go back.
