The food is great but remarkably overpriced. We ordered a few items (food) and beverages (beer) and they seemed to be out of everything we asked for. Our server was blunt, inattentive, and altogether rude. We had been once before and had a very pleasant meal, but this second go-around has us questioning whether we'll return again. Consider making your prices more competitive (and realistic) and encouraging your service team to at least pretend to want to be there.

Great food! The burnt ends and sourdough bread appetizer was a perfect 10. The chicken was very good and I have never seen a baked potato so big. It fed 3 of us and we still had some left. The strawberry rhubarb pie was delicious. Great restaurant definitely recommend.

The mussels are to die for. Very well done. My steak, as usual, was great. Rye is the only place I will eat steak, pricey but well worth the price. I would prefer slices of beets in my salad, rather than chunks, but that's a personal preference. Our waiter, Matthew was great. He was attentive but not pushy. Courses were timed well. He went out of his way to make our even relaxing and fun. I wish there were a less "rich" dessert. Maybe a simple, rustic apple tart? I'll be back.

Food was great. Worst part of the evening was a family that was sat by us needed to use their flashlights on their phones to read the menu, thus shining the lights directly in our faces. If it wasn’t for that the evening meal would have been wonderful.

The goat cheese and bread was good. I got the shrimp and grits which was okay simply because it wasn’t made in a traditional way. It had bbq beef on it too - which was weird. Everything else was great!

Waiter was so good were laughing about old times and he knew our 70's music and what we did when we were in high school and the 30yrs old couldn't believe it.

He is just great. Everytime he came by with our food, I ask him do you remember doing this, and the answer was also yes.

It was a great night for all of us and a great waiter

The food was excellent the service was deplorable. The hostess were nice but seemed a little stressed.
It was a special occasion and we had another couple with us and the waitress was rude. It was embarrassing. I'm afraid I will not dine her again due to the treatment. The food was exceptionally good however.

We should have know we would be disappointed when the hostess did not say one word to us when seating us. No eye contact. No smile. She just set the tone for a disappointing meal.

I ordered the 3 piece chicken meal and told my wife, if you put this in a KFC bucket you wouldn't know any difference.

My wife ordered the shrimp, pulled pork and quinoa meal which was very nice I must say.

We had planned on having a couple slices of pie for dessert but with the uninspiring chicken and hostess starting the experience we were ready to end our Rye time.

I ate dinner at Rye twice last week, once for business and once with family. Rye has a great staff who are friendly, helpful and fun. Our waiter for the business dinner saw me with the family and came over just to say hello. Great food--the best steak in town, wonderful apps, sides and desserts with an interesting wine list.

My wife had the eggs benedict which were very good. I had the Rye breakfast. The hash browns were some kind of a "pressed potato square" and the sausage was made from "mystery meat" with no taste. The waitress never came around to offer refills on our coffee. Even with empty tables, it appeared that they wanted us to eat, hurry up, and leave.
