My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at OpenAire. It was our anniversary, which was notated on the OpenTable notes, but there was no recognition of this fact.

The customer service was great for the 90% of our dining. After the shift change it was not as good.
Ambiance was wonderful but food was definitely not worth our over $200 check.
Also, they allow dogs to sit at the table with the diners. I normally would not have a problem with this except it was a small enclosed greenhouse so they should have considered not allowing pets.
I would recommend going there once for the experience.

I had made reservations on march 13th for my birthday and had 6 guests with me from out of town to come celebrate with me. I had called an hour before I left my house since this restraunt is an hour drive from my house and asked if they were open due to corona virus and because of the weather. I spoke to a girl, can't remember her name. She said they had a leak but fixed it and was now back open. When I arrived with my group, the restaurant was closed and when I spoke to the only person there, all they said was sorry but we are closed. I wasn't upset that it was closed, I was upset with the LACK OF COMMUNICATION. When you make reservations they take down your number, therefor if there are any changes (in this case the leak) I think it would of been professional to call the guest and let them know the news. I drove an hour away to be turned back around. After It was too late to eat brunch anywhere and me and all my guests were very upset. Along with it being my birthday, it was ruined. I at least would have been happy too get a voucher for next time. UNPROFESSIONAL

The service was terrible. They sat us outside and for the whole evening were dragging heaters back and forth to all the tables, replacing the gas in them, it was very distracting - especially when it was freezing outside when our burner went out. (Why did they not set these up ahead of time?). We had to keep asking for them to turn our heater back on and had to keep flagging down the staff to order. His response was "the restaurant is full." Of course it's full, it's 7:30 on a Saturday and by the way you're welcome?? I mean...seriously? The food all came out at different times. The waiter didn't explain if these were supposed to be shared plates or not, but every dish was sat in the center of the table regardless of who ordered it. I had the cod which was great - really small and really expensive - with no sides. The waiter never explained portion sizes or if we should be ordering sides or if our meals came with sides. I was starving after dinner, but not about to order something else and wait an hour for it to arrive in the cold. Our parking was only validated for 2 hours and the meal took 2.5 hours to be sat, order, and eat - nothing extra. $16.50 for parking... Great. I will never go back here. It's sad because I think the chef was really good.

Our reservation was almost not accomodated and we had to order in 5 minutes before the kitchen closed which was not a great first experience. The space is beautiful but the noise level is high so more of a boozy brunch vibe. The food was standard, not bad, but nothing I'd write home about. Go for the Instagrammable space.

Food was all right. Ambiance was great! Definitely looked roomier on IG than IRL. One and done.

The food was really disappointing. Very bland and didn’t even look that good. The vibe was really cool and the scene was chill but $75 for 2 people was really not worth it. We won’t be going back.

Hope we were informed about the dessert fee for the birthday cake.

Despite having a brunch reservation at 10:45, we were not seated until 11:50. The food was great. I had the tuna nicoise and my friend the corn flake crusted french toast. Strangely, our waiter switched half way through the meal, which threw us a bit off guard. Good food and great interior, but they really need to work on managing their reservations better... if I hadn't been looking forward to coming for a while, I would've left.

Openaire has great ambience however the food is very basic I feel like the menu could be way better to accommodate the great ambiance. In addition to that my food had hair and it immediately lost my appetite and sent it back.. aside from that the drinks are really good.

The food and service was excellent. We were very pleased with the quality of food and taste. We had the little gem salad, winter fruits & vegetables, and hamachi appetizer to start. Paired with white wine it was quite delicious. So fresh and just the right amount of seasoning. For our main, we had the truffle risotto along with the Sonoma duck. The duck was so flavorful & soft and the risotto was outstanding. The shaved truffle is the real deal...not the oil stuff most places use. We concluded the meal with a dark chocolate cake along side coffee and tea. The service personnel are very courteous and attentive. We are eating here again for sure.

Staff was amazing. Literally a dream team. We came in with our young infant child and the server literally babysat him while we ate. Other staff members talked to him, made him laugh etc. The manager stopped in to check on us and we expressed our appreciation. The ambiance was amazing even at night. I've heard its better during the day. Great tasting food and our server new the menu like the back of her hand. Loved everything about this establishment.

Amazing service!! They had to close for Valentine’s Day, but gave us $100 in credit. We went a few days later and they were extremely apologetic and gave us free champagne, appetizer and a plate of lamb chops! We were extremely well fed that night and when we finished our meal, the manager said it was on them 😌 dissapointed that we couldn’t dine there on Valentine’s Day but they MADE UP for it 100%!! The food was also AMAZING. An amazing apple salad appetizer and the steak was so great!!!
