The duck and rabbit was excellent, as was the bread plate. Very good service, even with the number of people we had.

Food was excellent. Always creative and good options for specials. Had the seafood special with lobster, shrimp and mussels and it was excellent. Also the new hummus appetizer was terrific.

Vegan food was very good. Vegan dip was excellent. Vegan au graten potatoes were a bit dry and bland. Service was good despite some ‘oven trouble’

Very open and noisy environment. There was a very boisterous large group that diminished the experience a bit.

Overall tho high quality, nutritious food that was tasty and well prepared. Attentive server…now if there were only more sound absorption It would have been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Great, truly healthy concept restaurant that shows healthy food can taste great. This is not the restaurant you want to go to if you are in a hurry, but if you truly want to enjoy and savor your meal, you're in for a treat. As a vegan (for health reasons), I appreciated how thoughtful and beautiful the vegan dish of the day was. If I could make my food like that at home, it would make being a forced vegan much more bearable. Roman the manager is so knowledgeable and passionate about helping heal people, we had a lengthy discussion after he asked why I was vegan, and he gave some good advice. Plenty of options for the non-vegan too, and all organic and grass fed, the way food should be. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to trying the meal prep option when I'm back in town for more treatment.

Very good. Food very good. A little on the pricy side for the priz fixe menu: I think should get soup and salad for the price instead of one or the other. Good portion size for entree. Great flavor. Perfectly done proteins. Really nice dessert.

We were a party of six and everyone enjoyed their meal. We began our evening with Oysters Rockefeller and the Stuffed Mushrooms as an appetizer which was so savory.

I chose the "special" of the evening which was the scallops and shrimp dish that was absolutely delicious.

The staff was extremely attentive and I would definitely visit Sapiens Paleo Kitchen again!!!

Food was great! My own fault for not realizing this place does not serve alcohol or wine. Apparently you can bring your own wine but we were not aware of this. Service was very friendly and attentive although I felt they should bring fresh cutlery between the appetizer and the main course. Had the creme brûlée for dessert and it was fantastic.

The entire restaurant is gluten free so there are no concerns about cross contamination. And the place was packed so it is good to have a place where people can eat quality food without the fear of getting sick. The meatloaf with the sherry sauce was outstanding..

Excellent food. Server (young woman, short hair) rushed us at every stage of the meal including trying to remove plates while people were still eating. She actually removed my plate without asking when there was still food on it (fortunately I was done eating). BYOB is a bonus. Good restaurant. Just needs a better server.

The food is terrible and is equivalent to cafeteria food with zero presentation. I will never go back.

Some customers expect us to serve pizza and chicken nuggets . As a Paleo restaurant we've made a commitment to serve meals prepared only from the most mindfully selected ingredients that contribute to the optimal health. Being rude to our server and demanding food that we don't serve is simply unacceptable.

Very barren, probably because of the pandemic. We were told there was no option for anything cream-like to add to coffee because “dairy is not paleo,” then handed a container of sugar packets, so that seems incongruent. Otherwise, food was generally fine, if a little salty & the waitress was quite pleasant.

Thanks for your review. Sapiens is the only 100% Paleo restaurant in the US. We do not use dairy products. The sugar selection offered to you included Stevia, Monkfruit and Brown Sugar. Some guests experience sensitivity to Stevia and Monkfruit, so brown sugar is a reasonable exception. We offer an alternative to cream , our bulletproof coffee with whipped MCT oil. It is healthy and delicious. 3 stars for not serving cream in Paleo restaurant is unreasonable. Please, let us stay true to Paleo

The chef at Sapiens was trained in Paris. Her dishes are luscious. Absolutely out of this world.

Also, she and her husband are experts in different foods and what is the most healthy for your body, so in addition to being delicious, it's beneficial for your health. It's all gluten-free and organic.

The seating is small and intimate, and because of that, the noise level is low.

I will definitely go here many, many times.

Fabulous dinner!!! Our new go-to restaurant for sure! Everything on the menu is healthy - AND gluten-free, even the yummy bread! Lots of menu choices… Can’t wait to go back and try them all! Really enjoyed their seafood special (pictured).

Especially appreciated the kind and attentive staff. Nikita, Mom & Dad - thanks for a lovely dinner. We’ll see you again soon!
