    Food was OK - some dishes better than others. Service was cheerful and attentive. Liked the appetizer board, but the rib eye was not of good quality. Cesear salad was ordinary. Outdoor patio seating (more enclosed than expected) was unusually noisy, probably due to low wooden roof on area. Interior of primary dining space was more attractive.

    Sent our board over for a last minute dinner as they wanted an outdoor space and S+S was awesome to accommodate their needs. They were very pleased with the change and I will be booking them again.

    Food was not great. Ordered filet medium rare, came out with zero pink. Sent it back. New filet was also way overcooked. All veggies were cooked in garlic. If you’re going to use a lot of garlic, please mention it on the menu as an ingredient for people who are sensitive to alliums. They told us they were sending over a crime brûlée to make up for the filet. We don’t like crime brûlée and asked to please not waste it They did not take anything off the bill. Waste of $100…not a great experience.

    Super disappointing brunch with friends here. The food was OK but nothing to write home about, and the coffee just tasted ... off. They have peameal bacon on the menu but don't really know what to do with it or how to cook it.

    Food was true to it's name: Salty. Individual servers were nice but had no idea what we ordered, could not distinguish between meals (one had cheese/one did not...), did not clear away dirty plates, etc. Very overpriced for a meal that reminded me of Chilis (no offense to those who enjoy Chili's).

    I had read about the restaurant in the Sunday globe and it sounded intriguing so I decided to try it. Took a friend for her birthday with a couple of other people and we all thought that the food was superb. All of the staff were very friendly and nice and our way to was extremely polite and nice. We all agreed we would definitely come back.

    My friends &amp; I loved this place! It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening, but we still had attentive service. Two of us got the wild mushroom truffle flatbread, which was delicious &amp; a large portion. I didn’t taste much truffle, but I still enjoyed it. My other friend got the tuna poke stack &amp; BLT salad &amp; she loved them both. We all really liked the atmosphere &amp; decor. We were seated by a window that opened up, so there was a nice summer breeze. It’s definitely a restaurant we’d come back to.

    Our server Arianna was wonderful. I wish we could say the same for everything else. The margaritas were full of lime and mixer, which is all that you tasted. To accommodate for this, instead, we ordered a bottle of champagne with a side of Grand Marnier. The champagne was served warm (not chilled long enough) in acrylic glasses. My partner ordered a steak medium-plus and it came out looking barely cooked. We were informed that the steaks are cooked sous-vide and not charred... The other steak was cooked well and the asparagus was overcooked. It would have been very awkward to eat while my significant other could not and wasn't enjoying his time. This was extremely disappointing as it was a birthday dinner; however, we couldn't enjoy the food or time. My recommendation is don't order the steak unless you like it prepared this way. This has the potential to be a great place. To get there, I'm hoping a few modifications can be made along with a bit of consistency in practice.

    First time visit… Seafood, shellfish, chicken were all very good. Salmon was excellent and cooked to perfection… Medium rare Unfortunately the ribeye was not cooked to request, thin cut and another was prepared still not the best cut of meat, possibly frozen? The bill was reduced Excellent potential for a successful restaurant… They just need to get the beef right!

    Went with friends from out of town. We got held up and just missed our seating window but they were very nice and able to accommodate us. Our server was great helping us get a quick meal so our friends could get to the airport. I love the menu, broad range of sizes and prices from small plates and salads to sandwiches, burgers, flatbreads and mains. Everyone was happy with their meals. I had the wild mushroom flatbread which was nicely done and tasty, but would be more interesting with more mushroom variety. All in all, nice room, nice place for conversation, worth going back.

    Restaurant is beautiful, ambiance is very nice. Food was okay, not great. We had the chicken entree and the mac and cheese. Chicken had way too much cinnamon and the mac and cheese had no flavor. Appetizer meatballs were delicious. We didn't like that we got our food before we got our drinks. Also, the server never picked up our empty or dirty plates, walked by multiple times before even asking if we needed anything. Such a pretty restaurant but wish the service was better.

    Despite being a busy Saturday night the hosts and servers were attentive, courteous, and provided great service. Food was delicious and as expected. We ordered the hummus as an appetizer (good amount of hummus, oil, peppers, and olives - we finished the naan first and our server offered to bring more), my husband got the bolognese (generous portion, maybe a bit lighter on the sauce for some), and I ordered the filet (cook temp was spot on, had a good crust, but didn't come with too many pan juices - I asked for some A1). We took the creme brulee and seasonal cheesecake to go - both very, very good!

    Excellent addition to Assembly! Food was great and service even better. Server and bartender very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. Only things we weren’t fans of were the rib-eye not being seared and the high top seats are uncomfortable. The rest of the experience did make up for this. We will be returning!

    First of all the chairs on the high tops were hard to get close to the table as they sunk down when you went to sit on them. We eat a lot of oysters and the ones we ordered need not seem to be fresh at all. I also ordered the tuna and don't understand serving it with a big cold potato. Flatbreads were very good. Also surprised to be charged for every soda consumed. Although the food was that good the service was excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive.

    Salt + StoneResponded on June 6, 2022FOODY26, Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate your taking the time to leave a review for us. Our Oysters do come in fresh every day. But I will bring that the attention of your executive chef. I will also be sure to pass on your compliments to our wonderful servers. We hope top see you again soon!

    Food was very good. Menu is a bit eclectic but something for everyone!! The night of our visit the service was a little slow. We had to wait for initial drink order and then had to flag our waiter down to put in a second beverage order. I have the sense the wait staff is new so I expect the service will improve over the coming weeks! All in all a good night and good food!

    Food (charcuterie board and fig prosciutto flatbread) was just okay. Charcuterie lacked presentation and only had basic cheeses. Strawberries on the board were not fresh. The whole thing seemed like it was thrown together. The waiter did not once ask how our meal was or come back to check on us, he only came back to drop off the check mid-meal.

    Our server was really helpful and sweet! The baked brie was delicious, as were the meatballs. I think some of the dishes could use some work, including the mac and cheese (just all pasta and cheese without any mix-ins - you can add in meat but it was still missing something - seemed better as a side than main) and salmon was a bit overdone. Our drinks were also a little inconsistent, but we would definitely go back - they are still new and working out the kinks.
