The second iteration of Neat isn’t as good as the first. The prices went up, the signature items they had before are not on the menu anymore. The food isn’t the same quality as before. We were glad to see them come back, but not the same as before.

Always a great meal at Neat. I did order a burger medium and it came out very rare!! They immediately fixed my order and brought me a fresh medium burger! The management is hands on and the staff is friendly and attentive!!

First time visiting Neat kitchen, what a excellent place to dine! The restaurant is so modern and I love the decor. My husband and I had the whiskey bbq wings, short rib grilled cheese and ribeye sandwich. Everything was outstanding. Will be back!

Another great meal! Everything was extremely fresh and very well presented. Ordered the edamame, Neat burger, 3 style tacos (Carne Asada, El Pastor and Chx), asparagus and Brussels sprouts. The fried egg on the burger was perfect. Out of the tacos the El Pastor was the best. Not to say the others weren’t tasty. Shout out to Patrick for the excellent customer service.

Food and service excellent. Even drinks were extremely good. Intense flavored drinks which you don’t find often. This is a bar/restaurant but trust me there’s a true chef working the kitchen! Food was awesome. Neighborhood gem!

They closed and reopened but we couldn't tell the difference from before or after. Nothing special, not the best variety on the menu, tacos weren't very good, we ended up splitting the other meal we ordered since the tacos were sub par. Won't be returning.

We love this place! The food is exceptional, the service is tip-top. Menu is relatively small, but this is not bar food, there's a chef involved and he/she does good work. Very good beer and cocktails selection.

Regarding the noise level rating...there's no guide for which to choose if it's quiet or too loud...or if one rating means it's best for what I wanted (loud and busy is good sometimes, and quiet and calm is good sometimes).

We sat at the high top tables in the bar area and it’s always fun to do that! Service was attentive, but not pushy. We dined on a Wednesday night which is half priced wine night so that was nice! Definitely going back soon.

I am a avid customer for neat. Although last visit my burger wasn’t cooked to my liking and the cole slaw just tasted like chopped cabbage no dressing. Other than that I still love it!
