    Outstanding service, everything first class. The only problem, and a small problem really, my wife did not enjoy the prime rib. She really doesn't enjoy beef. So next time she will try seafood. That's more to her taste. Everything thing else was very enjoyable. We really had a great time.

    Everything was absolutely devine - we had the rye old fashioned and a glass of wine, the cheese curd appetizer, the short rib and the pork chop entrees and the creme brulee dessert. I cant wait to return!

    Prepare to be wowed! Drinks were delicious and well crafted. Food was superior. I had the squash stuffed ravioli and practically licked my bowl. Everyone in our group loved their meal. Portions are not huge but I’m ok with that. I’d rather have a smaller portion of something delicious than a huge plate of “meh” food. Server was friendly and attentive. I can’t wait to go back.

    Phenomenally good food! I had the hanger steak, a special that day. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked with amazing flavor. The oysters were delicious and their hand made sauces that come with are the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend the charcuterie board as well. I went before a show at the PAC and I will definitely go again!

    1st time at Rye. Before we were seated, we spent some time in the lounge, bartender=Not Friendly. Seated on time. Waitress was pleasant. Dinner, Pork Chop and Salmon took longer than it should have, but that allowed us time to talk. The seating arrangements were not on top of each other which was nice. Overall, the dining experience was very good. We will be back.

    A bit on the pricey side but great for a special night out on the town. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. The vibe was chill and not too noisy or busy. My husband and I had a wonderful experience.

    Overall the food, service & atmosphere was awesome, I started with an arugula salad with poached pears, blue cheese crumbles & sugared walnuts, with delicious dressing probably made from what the pears were poached in, for the entree I had the root beer glazed beef short rib on a mound of mashed potatoes with cooked baby carrots, delicious! My husband had the beef filet, rare, with quartered potatoes & spinach with a cream sauce which he said numerous times was SO good. unfortunately there was one woman in the dining room that apparently felt she needed to be noticed or at the very least heard! Rye, it is a small restaurant, with low lighting, kind of an intimate setting, maybe a dozen tables, some closer than others sharing banquette seating; this very loud obnoxious women was on the opposite side of the dining room approx 20 feet from us & obviously failed to “ read the room” & made her presences known by laughing LOUDLY way to often. The night being our anniversary, as it was the couple next to us, other patrons dressed appropriately for the setting should have been obvious that a quiet dinner was what others were there for. Perhaps too much alcohol for her or just her personality, but I’m sure the people on each side of them were happy to get away from her, we certainly were. We will most definitely go back as she is no reflection on Rye, I just hope she isn’t there again.

    Service was excellent, drinks were excellent, oysters were excellent, the Kansas City Steak wasn't very good. Unfortunately my wife and I both got it and regret the decision. I would recommend going here for drinks and appetizers but eat your main course somewhere else...If you are going to get a main course then skip the Kansas City steak.

    This place was amazing. Best experience I have had in a long time. The ambience was beautiful, our waitress had great hospitality skills, greeted with a smile, made conversation, thanked us for being there. The food, I have no words. My boyfriend had the salmon and I had the schnitzel, so so good. The presentation was unbelievable, we took pictures of everything. Drinks were very well created, dessert was phenomenal. The price was reasonable especially my meal. 5 star dining for sure. If we lived in Appleton we would frequent this establishment. Great job everyone that works there, you should be proud.
