Food has gone down hill! My daughters hamburger was inedible and the steak salad was disappointing. Not planning on returning

Service was inattentive. One in party ordered a burger. It took several requests to eventual see ketchup and mayo. Salt and pepper also required a special request. Kale chicken salad tasted fine but should probably be labeled kale salad with a hint of chicken.

The food was OK, a bit overpriced for what it was, but it was OK - but the service was pretty bad.

I have been here many times and the service is always good. Unfortunately this time our server was not good. He was inattentive and made us feel like we were imposing on him whenever we asked for something.

Such an accommodating restaurant! We went to dinner for my husband's birthday here with our newborn (2 month-old!) son. Not only did they give us a booth table big enough to accommodate his bassinet, they did it at 7pm, during the busiest time! They were so sweet with us and made sure we had everything - even helped us stow our stroller to the side. Food is also excellent, great cocktails - everything you can expect from this family of restaurants. Love them and will definitely be back!

Great food, cool menu. Is it s very noisy place, always busy - especially on weekends. It is very small and tables are really close together so you need to reserve in advance to get in. I like the outdoor seating now for warmer weather. Service is friendly. Will definitely go back again.

12pm reservation. Arrived on time. 40 minute wait for table. Shoved in the corner. Waiter too busy to fill water, take drink order. Flagged him down to order. More waiting. Kitchen sent out 2 tiny comped apps due to wait. Food arrives, water never refilled. Check brought out without asking if we wanted coffee. Loud, crowded, food just ok. Not going back.

Overall, the food was good to very good. Not impressed with the cocktails menu at all, and expecting FAR more in return from the price of our tab. Didn’t live up to what I was hoping, but at least average, and would have felt better about the visit if the bill was about 20% less.

This was a business dinner, the server was very unhappy and did not hide it when we did not order a bottle of wine or 3 appetizers. When we did order 3 appetizers, he acted frustrated that we didn't do more. When we ordered the meal, once again did not hide that we did not order a bottle of wine.

Each time we tried to ask a question or talk to him, he was looking around and very disinterested. Gave us the desert menu, never came back to see what we wanted. So we paid and left.

For this price and the level of restaurant it is, or wants to be, the servers should be paid enough that they do not press the guest so much.

We had a drink at the bar, which was lovely. Great bartender!! Then, the reservation was honored on time. We started out a little rocky because we had a tiny table for 2 in the corner. Super tight seating. However, as the evening progressed the service and food were both on point. I was highly impressed overall 😊😊

This was a special dinner date with my mom and I couldn’t have been more disgusted with the service at Quality Eats.

We had an 8:30 reservation and got there 5min early only to be told there wasn’t a table ready and we should wait.

We get huddled to the bar area which is packed and very noisy and wait. And wait. And wait.

At 8:10 (15min later) no one had come up to us. More so, no hostess was even around. It looks like the hostesses double as waiters.

I had to personally flag down a waiter to ask for the hostess, only to be told that he was the hostess. I explain that we had an 830 reservation and had been waiting for a very long time. He looked up our reservation again and said that no table was available yet.

This was a special dinner with my Mom and they were having us stand in the bar area (she’s 60+ FYI) for 15min with no one checking in. HOW CAN NO ONE CHECK IN??? This is an extremely small restaurant. Why did I have to flag down a waiter?!?

All the hostess could say was we’ll make it up to you, we’ll make it up to you, but couldn’t give us a table. Absolutely ridiculous. What’s the point of a reservation if you can’t seat us???

Thank you for ruining what was supposed to be a special dinner with my mom to a frustrating experience.

DO NOT EAT HERE. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU NOR RESPECT A RESERVATION. SERVICE IS TERRIBLE
