This place is beautiful. We really wanted to enjoy the food and drinks. But nothing on the plate complimented the ambiance. The food was not rooted in flavor on any level from the starter to the entree. The drinks were great and the "look" of the food plated was nice, that is the only reason they got 2 stars from us when rating food. We go to top dollar establishments regularly and become return customers if the experience meet our palate. However, this place did not so I would suggest to save your money and visit another culinary establishment. The waiter that we had was not attentive enough to our table we were constantly looking for him. This place is beautiful but that is it. In the words of my wife "we won't be back".

Place was very clean and our waitress was very attentive. Food was a huge disappointment. Chicken noodle soup was done in a brown broth and was very salty. Looked more like vegetable soup. Hot chicken sandwich was very bland and greasy. Roasted fingerling potatoes could have had some seasoning and salt.

The ambiance is so nice. Neat, clean, perfect lighting & great music! The waiters are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is out of this world! Always fresh, delicious & beautifully presented. The cocktails are perfectly crafted and there’s always a fabulous seasonal choice. The host is always so personable & remembers you. Overall, one of my absolute favorites.

Such a great place. We had been before on a friend’s recommendation and we loved it. If possible we had an ever better experience the second when bringing our friends, one who is vegan. The server was extremely considerate informing us of what was in the dishes to help her make a choice. The chef was also so gracious to rearrange a dish to ensure that it was vegan, even checking on her later to find out how it was! The service and quality of food is unmatched. Thank you Small Batch!

Flavor of the food is good. However, too much fries with the steak entree. The cheeseburger was made well done instead of medium well.

The server was aware of my allergies (which I let the restaurant know beforehand), and provided excellent service in making sure the kitchen could accommodate me. For an appetizer, we ordered the “half” portion of butternut squash angolotti; the portion was perfect for a quick appetizer: the pasta still had bite, and they were packed with filling. The only criticism I had for that dish was that the sage was lost (but the dish was still delicious). For entrees my girlfriend had the cod with brussels sprouts, apple butter, and bacon; and I had the salmon with beets, heirloom grains, and horseradish creme fraiche. Both plates were very large portions and cooked to perfection. Within the first few bites of my dinner, I had decided to make Small Batch a regular spot. To finish off the meal, I ordered a scoop of fig sorbet; truly the perfect end to a delicious and well thought out meal.

The food was amazing and so was our waiter. When I didn’t like my drink, he recommended an exclusive one not on the menu and took the previous drink off my menu. He also made great meal recommendations. I’ve been here a few times and every single dish me and me friends have tried are not only good, but are outstanding. The place is also really nice inside and I love the open kitchen concept. It feels like your eating in a beautiful, high end, seaside home. I love this place and would come back again and again!

Brunch Time

Pros: Everything. Eggs are eggs, but the pancakes and the MAPLE SYRUP. The whipped cream. You do not need any butter anywhere. Their donuts at the end with the caramel. Awesome. Always a pleasure coming here.

Dinner Time: (Previous time)
GET THE SMOKED MEATBALLS. If you don't you're missing out.

You can't go wrong with this place. All the food here is great. The service is even better. Very attentive and helpful. Cocktails are good, wine selection is equally good.
