The food, drinks and atmosphere were really nice. Would happily recommend if I could pick the server - anyone other than the guy who collected a hefty tip for no work and being rude. Forced gratuity sucks when your server doesn't even try.

Service was good. We wanted a lively place with quality food and that’s what we got! Schnitzel was good- but not traditionally cooked. Pasta was excellent. Waiter was knowledgeable and easy going.

On Sunday night, March 3rd 2019 I dined with two friends visiting from Spain and we were all knocked out by our food, drinks and service. The new owners took over Quinn's a year ago and they have brought it back to top form. (It's actually been on top form for a while now.) Chef Miles James and his team create outstanding dishes; the current winter menu includes the best Coq au Vin I've eaten. Also on the winter menu is a terrific Cassoulet (get both dishes while you can!) and the Scallops are to die for. They are perfectly cooked with a creative and flavorful set. Kat provided excellent service, Zach's bar skills are first rate and Nicholas came out from the kitchen to visit with us after his shift. My friends kept raving about the experience; I haven't heard so many accolades from diners in a very long time. Music can be loud, though, and we asked if they would lower the volume a bit because we were having to shout to one another. They were kind enough to accommodate our request and I believe they struck a happy medium. We were grateful.

First of all thank you Quinn's for allowing reservations. It's nice to know that a table will be waiting for you when you arrive. This is the second time my husband and I have visited Quinn's and their food just gets better each time. During this visit we tried the the cauliflower appetizer, the winter citrus salad, and the coq au vin. Each dish had a unique flavor that really matched the ingredients and balanced the rest of the dish. The cauliflower was clean, healthy, and most importantly not drenched in oil. It came with this amazing sauce that paired really well with the cauliflower. The winter citrus salad was bright, tangy, and refreshing. I loved the vinaigrette that they used, absolutely delicious. The highlight of our meal was definitely the coq au vin. The chicken was cooked perfectly, mouthwatering and tender. Other ingredients in this dish that made it dynamite were the pearled onions, pieces of bacon, mushrooms, potatoes, and gravy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed each entree. I highly recommend Quinn's.

Wonderful experience all around. We not only had an excellent server, but the entire staff was attentive and courteous. Food is good, there are some fine-ish options for foodies, as well as more casual options to please the general population. It was the cocktails that I liked the most. Great spot, definitely recommend for any size group of people.

Food was good but for it to be almost 30 dollars for a big plate, I was disappointed by the amount of food I actually got. Wasn’t worth the price of what I got. You should definitely let people know if they are going for a birthday that they get charge for the dessert which is crazy cause most places do free birthday desserts so that was frustrating. And, our waiter after we had paid our bill, came rushing back to the table asking us if we are okay because he noticed we didn’t tip him because we weren’t entirely pleased with our stay and then proceeded to say, “you know gratuity isn’t included right?” Like how dare you, just expect a tip from me I paid what I needed to pay dude so what’s your deal! I definitely won’t be coming back!

Food was just okay. I had read so many great things, perhaps I was expecting too much. The salmon was not very flavorful and was served rare. The Comte cheese plate was incredibly small and served with somewhat stale bread slices. The Scotch Egg was the best part of the meal.

I love coming here to watch Halloween shananigans - we sat by the window and were entertained all evening while we ate an array of excellent food - I had the Duck Muscovy - nicely rare yet crispy on the outside, very flavorful. The scotch egg, beef salad and cheese plate were also awesome. I ordered several cocktails and my friend had one suggested - we really enjoyed them all!

Really tasty food and generous portions (the bone marrow plate comes with 3 bones!). The service was excellent, Zach was very attentive and friendly. Only letdown was the cocktails were hit-or-miss - the first round was very mildly flavored, so on our second attempt we specifically asked for spirit-forward drinks and ended up getting good recommendations.
Overall very good, we'll absolutely be going back.

Home run for a unique date night! The location on Pike had a unique, fun and funky vibe. The staff was friendly and attentive without being invasive. We started with the pretzel and four gras...both were fantastic. The mains of the house burger and the risotto were stellar. They even treated us to a small glass of prosecco to celebrate our anniversary. If you want a little something different with high quality food, try Quinn’s!!!!

I love the atmosphere in this funky old building. The menu is small, but I've really liked what I've ordered the two times I've been there: first a burger, then the fish & chips. Service was absolutely perfect; our waiter was attentive, professional, charming, and friendly. The food was served with perfect timing and was piping hot. My old-fashioned was one of the best I've had, and the waiter helped us make an alternate beer selection when our first choice was unavailable. The tab before tip for a burger, fish and chips, a soda, a cocktail, and a beer was around $64, which we thought was very fair. Very vibrant neighborhood, great for walking around before or after your meal.
