    Each dish was perfectly cooked and was well thought out. I had the hog fish over a polenta in a light tomato sauce wihich complemented each other .

    As usual great service and food and nice bar selections. The dishes are very creative and tasty! The only bad part is the fee you have to pay for all this!

    Wine, food & ambiance were excellent. Service was slow, espresso had no cream-a. We would recommend Reid’s Restaurant with some exceptions.

    Ambience was nice and upon entry had high hopes. Food was expensive for what it was. The description of the food out-paced the reality of what was delivered. $38 for a pasta special that had no protein? Pasta, three pieces of crushed tomato, Couple of chunks of tough mushroom and a blob of Barata cheese? The chicken thigh entrée featured two small, dry chicken thighs, four slices of squash, the same tough mushrooms and a touch of polenta. Oysters were good. Generally, the food was under-seasoned and kinda underwhelming. Service was good.

    One of the best meals and evening’s out with friends this year. Our server was exceptional in every respect. Her warm and caring attention to detail were the perfect complement to our delicious meals and drinks. I can’t believe there is a better restaurant in the Banner Elk area. Thanks so much to Summer (our server) and the whole team at Reid’s Cafe!

    Food portions very small. No offer of small snack or veggie plate or bread. Way too high in price to go with the ambience. Food was mediocre at best.
