                                Had a table of 10 for my birthday! It was a great time- no complaints! If you schedule a brunch- make sure it is before 3:30 as the kitchen closes then for dinner. We had a reservation at 3 and had to kind of order fast. I would recommend!

                                We love this place! I just wished when we asked to move due to the party next to us being obnoxiously loud we were giving the run around so we didn’t enjoy it like we normally would! The food was great though!

                                Food was decent. Prices weren’t bad for the portion sizes. There’s not really a theme, the atmosphere is a little confusing aesthetically and the music is kind of all over the place, but not in a bad way necessarily. I enjoyed it for the most part. We didn’t get a marg, mimosa or beer tower, but we’ll definitely be going back for one. They looked good! Service was a little slow, and our waitress just sort of disappeared towards the end of our meal and we never saw her again.. Took awhile to get another servers attention to get our bill to pay. You’d think our original waitress would want her tip? Odd. Overall not bad.

                                Our reservation were 11 so we literally were the 1st one there. The drinks were wonderful. 25 mins after ordering our food I was told my appetizer wasn’t available so I switched to something else, 15 mins after that our order came out and everything was cold. By then we didn’t feel like even waiting anymore so I got my 2nd choice appetizer to go which was steaming hot 🤦🏾‍♀️

                                Honestly my servers attitude was so bad we just got up and left without ordering anything. I’ve been wanting to try this place so bad, so it sucks that he ruined our experience before we could even enjoy anything.

                                My burger bun was rock hard. I noticed the guests right next to me order the same thing as me but I received small oysters and they received bigger ones. The sodas were flat. I had to keep flagging down the waiter except when it was time to collect the check. Then they were picking and choosing who id they wanted to check.

                                Our server was great she was polite and could sense when we were not satisfied. The only thing I appreciated about this experience was that she discounted a few items due to “dissatisfaction”. I personally had a hair In my beef with rice bowl. Then the second item I ordered was labeled sesame chicken wings on the menu but it did not mention they would be drowned in a spicy sauce, so I was unable to eat them. Besides the over seasoning of sesame seeds poured over the top of the wings. My sister ordered beef tacos and they came out looking like dog meat on a tortilla. All other items where up to standard. The only thing we could enjoy were the oysters and Mac and cheese. It just seems like the chef was inexperienced and or the restaurant needs to give more attention to certain items on the menu. We were hoping for the brunch items but they were unavailable during the week at 11 am. We got the recommendation from tik tok but was sadly disappointed in our experience.

                                Food I had was mediocre (fried chicken slider, waffle fries, and steak skewer) except the chargrilled oysters. The scene was cool but the drinks were a tab bit expensive $16 for a maple old fashioned that was tasted basic. Overall it would be cool vibes if you're in thr area but for me it wasn't work the travel.

                                I’ve been wanting to go to this place for a while and thought it would be the perfect place for NoLibs restaurant week. We got there at 7pm on a weds and it wasn’t crowded at all. We got our table right away and we ordered fairly quickly —- it took them like 15 mins to get us one pitcher of drinks and then it took them literally 45 mins to get our one app and a total of 1hr 15 mins to get our main course… the restaurant was not that crowded and they told us in the beginning we can only be seated for 2 hrs max. How can you expect that when you take that long to bring out the food. The taste of the food was pretty decent but the timing of the service was ridiculous. Likely will not return.

                                I thought I forgot my ID at home, I then went to the car and found my ID. I then called my waiter over and asked her to order my drink now that I found it and she examined it and told me it was not me. I then pulled down my mask and also showed a picture of myself in my camera roll and she then asked my partner if she had her ID which she responded “no”. The waiter then stood there for about 1 minute before saying um yea our drinking policy is 25 and older which I knew was a lie and when I double checked with the other waiter he said that the age requirement was 21. Also, my beyond meat was pink as if it cooked for 30 seconds.

                                It was 30 degrees outside and they offered outside sitting on the reservation as if a small portable Gasoline fireplace was enough to keep your customers or their food warm. My food was cold without 5 minutes of it arrival. Literally, just say there isn’t any open reservation before you seat someone outside.

                                We are very sorry for your experience sitting outdoors with us. We try out best to offer propane heaters at all of our tables. We do recommend making indoor reservations for all inclement weather conditions but still offer outdoor for those who are still wanting to dine with us. We thank you for your feed back and hope that spring will resolve any of the outdoor blues!

                                10/10 brunch experience. Great staff, great service. Food came out in a timely manner. This was my second time at Set NoLibs and I definitely recommend.

                                it was my second time. both times that i went staffing was terrible while the food always was good. this time some of my food came out cold. and my clams was overcooked. this place had potential.
