Very enjoyable brunch. My daughters are both school teachers so this was an extra treat for them. First visit for all of us. The attention to detail was amazing.

Enjoyed the tator tots and barbecue cauliflower. Food took a while to come out and it was a bit hard to catch our waitresses’ attention for when we needed water, ketchup, or even the bill. Also, my friend ordered the calamari which didn’t looked cooked fully. Place is trendy, but the food was mediocre.

The food was very good. The service was not. We had a couple of random waiters that asked if we wanted more beverages but never saw the original waiter again. The restaurant is extremely noisy.

It was the perfect location for our gathering. A little loud at times but not obnoxiously loud. Good selection of alcohol and delicious food.

4 of the people in our party had the impossible burger which was very good. We were able to squeeze in drinks and apps under the Happy Hour which was great. Overall very highly recommend.

The host was wonderful and was very helpful in finding my reservation. He double checked to make sure that I had everything until my party arrived. The wait staff was attentive and we hardly had to wait for anything. The food was tasty and the whole experience was better than I expected. Will come back!

Few things:
1) waitress did not really know about the beers offered. Instead brought samples of IPAs
2) waitstaff should not wear “jaunty” hats if they want to be taken seriously
3) bring ear plugs- place is ridiculously noisy
4) just so-so food, salmon was undercooked

The place is nice, good vibes, especially in the early evening. I had been there before.

Place was not busy at all at lunch time when we went.
My friend was served his side salad, asked for extra dressing that never came.

I order the steak frites , my gf the steak tacos and one friend a burger.
The meat was called in all three dishes. I told the waiter and it was my mistake not to send everything back. You can t reheat a medium rare steak because it will cool more.

He told the kitchen, came back and said he was sorry. Not a sign of let me offer you a dessert, or the cauliflower is on us.
Brought the bill and that was it.

Not impressed at all.

Arrived early and food pretty good, but once restaurant became busy, wait staff ignored us -- we waited 15 minutes to get the check despite asking 3 servers for it. If you're in a hurry, maybe look elsewhere.

This was my first time visiting Public School after a couple years of wanting to visit, and boy it did not disappoint! The food was delicious, and as a teacher, I LOVED the décor. The drink selection was very satisfying and the burger was very tasty. I was a bit disappointed that beer flights were not an option because there were so many I wanted to try but I went with the Far Out IPA from Bootleggers.

We really enjoyed our lunch on Sunday. The edamame humus is to die for. We were only disappointed when one of our guests ordered a glass of wine and glass was dirty. We asked for an exchange and she brought another glass of wine but she didn’t look at the glass close enough. It was also dirty it had dishwasher stains on it. She ended up drinking the wine but it kind of ruined the Luxury of having a glass of crisp cool wine on a nice sunny day having the glass still not very clean. We thought the waitress should have really made sure that the second glass was spotless. Other than that the food was awesome and we would go back again.

I love Public School, it is a fun place to relax, have some amazing food, and grab a drink. Unfortunately the waitress was rude and would only check in once every 30 minutes. My sister asked for a dessert menu, after about 25 minutes, the waitress walks by and tosses it at my sister without saying anything. When I RSVPed I put that this was a special occasion, and unfortunately the waitress kind of ruined the night.

2 apps, 2 mains and 2 drinks for +$80 dollars. All the food came out cold. . . The tortilla for my taco looked and tasted like they just took it out of a bag. The table next to us sent their lunch back.
Slow service and no check ins.

I had very poor service by a young male waiter with my family for Father’s Day. He was overwhelmed and curt and not very willing to address his constant missteps. He even snatched a glass from my hand that I was handing to him. I spoke with the hostess to have him replaced by the manager immediately. The woman who replaced him was very kind and gave great customer service. The manager came by to offer a surface apology while the server was not reprimanded. This spot is one of my favs but on such a special day - I’ll be taking a break from this establishment.

Consistently good food and classic American menu items. Noise level isn't the best, but asked to be seated outside or in a corner area if you have issues with that sort of thing.

I love Public School. The food is amaaaazing (PB&J burger is so surprisingly delicious and I’m addicted). The employees are always great - not overly cheerful like in a corporate restaurant, which I appreciate. Highly recommend.
