    We are so happy that we discovered this new, neighborhood place. Great ambience and friendly service. Very nice menu to choose from and the food was delicious. I had a Cuban sandwich and my husband had the Philly steak sandwich. We topped it off with bread pudding for dessert, which was more than enough for two to share. It was decadent and topped with a huge scoop of ice cream. We will definitely come back and bring our friends.

    We were taking advantage of Westmont Restaurant Week and we each had a three course dinner with a glass of wine. Salads, both entrees (panko chicken and short ribs), and desserts were very good. We dine at Neat at least monthly and always have great food and service.

    Food was excellent and service was great considering that the restaurant was quite busy. Would definitely recommend and easy parking. Only comment - we were celebrating a birthday - nothing special was done to recognize it though we did get a dessert comped.

    Menu has a good amount to choose from. Food was delicious. Can't wait to bring my family there. This was a girls night out and a quick decision to come last minute. Definitely a good choice. Oh and happy hour too with $5 chardonnay that was a decent tasting wine. Five stars all the way around.

    Owner and staff handled the Saturday early evening flow really well ... but never felt rushed! Drinks were quality liquor, generous pours and reasonably priced. Food was excellent - "Home-made" soup perfect (potato-cheddar medium-thick, great flavor and just the right amount of toppings (shredded cheese, chives); house burger thick, juicy and delicious with a "perfect" duck egg on top; even the fake-burger (not a fan) was done to our satisfaction (hard to do!) Asked for "crispy fries" and they delivered - but one of the stars of the show? Onion Rings! Large, house-cut, crispy outside, juicy onion underneath. BOTTOM LINE: we will definitely return.

    This is one of my favorites…walking distance of my house, good selection of food, and a good bar. The people are exceptionally friendly. I tried the blackened ribeye for $28 and the quality reflected the price However, I’ve always enjoyed the other entrees.

Our server Bri was attentive and fun yet respected we were not in a hurry. Her recommendations, along with all staff we asked, were excellent. High praise for planko chicken and Philly steak, that sauce is amazing!! Ended our night with Affogato, a true experience from presentation to flavor! The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable, yet welcoming. We enjoyed our first visit and know we will return!! Thank you to everyone at Neat Kitchen!

    Neat Kitchen is a very nice place for a friends dinner or a family dinner. We were there on a Friday with friends and it was a-bit noisy but not overbearingly loud. The place was crowded so the noise level was expected. We have been there on weekday evenings and the noise level wasn’t as high. The food and drinks at Neat Kitchen are always good. Everything was well prepared and very tasty. My only complaint was that I asked to switch the cheese on my philly sandwich . I didn’t want American, I asked for white Cheddar instead . Unfortunately my sandwich came without any cheese. I don’t know if the waitress didn’t order it correctly or if the kitchen was too busy and forgot to put cheese on the sandwich. The downside was the waitress never came back to check on us until most of my friends had eaten half their meal. Too late for me to send mine back I ate it. The sandwich was good but would have been better with the cheese. The manager came by and told me they adjusted our bill after I said something to the waitress. Good to know that management is following up with any complaints. We will go back. Little hiccups on a very busy Friday night are not keeping us away from a good restaurant.

    Made 530pm reservations. Was informed by the server we had to be out at 7pm due to trivia. The time restraints were not mentioned on open table. We like to have a drink before we order and not be rushed... Needless to say we left and went somewhere else. I have been telling my friends how good neat is and was very disappointed especially since most of the dining room was empty. Don't think I'll ho back
