Mediocre….bland and overcooked steak and fish. Overcooked pasta. We had been there a few times before and enjoyed it more.
Best dinner I’ve had since moving to the area! Impressed with the food (delicious!) and setting. The eggplant appetizer was excellent and the Butternut Squash Angolotti was seriously the tastiest dish EVER!
We had just paid for our meal. My friend went to the restroom. We were finishing up our second glass of wine and the maitre d’ came over and asked us to leave. We explained that we were and we were finishing up. He then glared at us and said that a couple was waiting for the outside table. The restaurant was full but there were a few empty table and we were not lingering over water. It was a shame to end a nice evening this way. The wait staff was lovely but super slow for the outdoor seating. We did not complain. However, this was the reason we still had plenty of wine to drink even though we had paid our bill. I have never had this happen to me before. It was entirely uncalled for and incredibly rude, especially given the fact that we had not finished and there were other tables available and only one couple waiting.
Alexandra, We are so sorry that this is you lasting memory of dining at Small Batch. We do our best to allow our guests to dine as leisurely as possible. We try to be as clear as possible in Open Table the time we plan for dining for two people which appears when you make the reservation and in the confirmation. The Patio was just so popular and full all last night because it was such a beautiful night and we needed to honor other reservations for patio seating. We do hope you come back.
Wonderful, genuine experience from start to finish. The Host was very gracious and we had a great server. Food was delicious and design/decor very sophisticated. Very much enjoyed and can’t wait to return!
Food and service were very good. Don’t let the name fool you. The portions are not small.
Loved the octopus!
Delicious food, great atmosphere and superb service!
Good restaurant with changing menu with a variety of options. The service is wonderful and the bar is good for the evenings. Enjoyed my time here. Have been to this restaurant several times snd will go back again
Our favorite local restaurant. Brunch is always great. Menu mix is wonderful. Quality of ingredients is superb. Service is friendly and attentive. Can't say it enough, it is a pleasure having this restaurant available to us.
Great as usual
Overall the dinner was good. We are outside so hard to assess ambiance. They did have umbrellas and heaters which both came in useful. The food was good, not great. Salmon with as well seasoned but the accompanying hearts of palm were so tough they were inedible. Sides were both good and the cappuccino was excellent. Price tag was crazy for the quality of the food. But that seems to be the trend since Covid appeared in the scene
Service was excellent. Mussels were phenomenal. Everything else was super super greasy - The octopus, and the burger and fries. Octopus and fries drenched in oil but the service and staff made up for it. Wouldn’t come back for dinner but would possibly return for a low key brunch.
Enjoyed the menu choices, atmosphere and service
Server was trai
The food was absolutely delicious. The cod was perfectly prepared.
The personalized menu was clever and appreciated. Attention of staff was great
After a visit to the mall.. we always find ourselves at
“Small Batches”.. we are on a mission to taste the entire menu.. one visit at a time..
Once we were seated, a young man inquired as to our water preferences.. and that’s how it always starts.. The servers , bus boys , all in sync.. The service always consistently efficient.
Our server “ Josue Z”, very pleasant,professional,accommodating.
We ordered the Whipped Ricotta Toast( delicious), Pan seared Cod( omg can’t say enough, so savory),agnolotti, stuffed with butternut squash( you get to choose your portion), and our guilty pleasure, the rosemary French fries( we order it each time!)
We had planned on ordering dessert, but ended up getting coffee instead..maybe we’ll start with dessert on our next visit
Thank you for your feedback, Rhea! We agree, Josue is great! The Pan Seared Cod is definitely a must have, one of our signature dishes, and the Agnolotti with butternut squash is a newer addition to the fall menu so we're glad you enjoyed it! We look forward to you dining with us again soon!
We enjoyed it very much. Loved the decor, casual, relaxed & comfortable. Food was delicious. The ricotta toast appetizer was delicious. Everything was delicious. Definitely going back.
Thank you, Ronald - the Ricotta Toast is a must have appetizer! Can't wait for you to come back!
My wife and I enjoy coming here. The menu selection is ok but the food is great, the service is excellent. All the way around we love the place.
Thank you, Rick!
Every food is great and delicious. The server are friendly
Thank you, Megan!
Perfect for our family milestone celebration. It was our second visit and were not disappointed. From the fresh oysters and meatballs, grilled half chicken and steak frites, to the chocolate soufflé and cinnamon doughnuts, everything was superb! I can't forget to give a special mention the AGAVE GINGER REVIVER, simply divine and alcohol free, so a burst of happy for the whole family!
Thank you, Ronina! We look forward to your third visit with us!
Dined on 10/1 for dinner. The mussels appetizer was great, the smoked brisket entree was great and the service was great.
Thank you, Robin! We recently updated our Mussels with fennel, leeks, turmeric and toast points so we look forward to you dining with us again and trying the new dish!
My favorite place ever! The green circle chicken is incredible!
Loved the food and airy atmosphere. It reminds me of Coastal Kitchen in California. Fresh food and the presentation was gorgeous.
Thank you! We take pride in our fresh, localized ingredients. Hope to see you again soon!
Always a pleasure dining at Small Batch
Thank you - it's a pleasure serving you!
Service was great food was amazing (brisket and angolottti pasta) and the drinks were fantastic (bee sting)
Thank you, Edward! We look forward to you dining with us again soon!
Amazing food! Loved the round table for my girlfriends and me! Intimate yet vibrant with the open kitchen right there in full view! Service was excellent!
Thank you, Cathy!
Delicious food and drinks, great decor and the ambiance is perfect for a nice meal!
Thank you, Tana!
Great time. Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was great, solid pricing. Definitely will come back
Excellent as always!
Missed Jeff he was in vacation!
Thank you! Jaff is back from vacation so come by soon!
Everything was wonderful. Especially the grilled oysters!!!
The service was just as wonderful as my last visit, but our lunches were not. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, just not great like the time before. Ordered the same dish, grilled cheese and tomato soup with fries to share. The sandwiches were just slivers this time around and definitely not as cheesy. I’m not sure, but it seemed like they forgot to add the garlic and Rosemary to our fries as they were so delicious on our last visit, but not this time. It is a beautiful spot and great staff, so I will definitely give it another try, every restaurant has their off days.
We had a greatl dinner at Small Batch. The drinks, wine, apps (Arugula Salad, Steamed Mussels and Ricotta Toast) were delicious. Same for the entrees (Cod, Salmon and Fried Hot Chicken). Channing was our server and she was very personable and attentive.
Thank you for your feedback! We're so glad you enjoyed everything and we will definitely let Channing know!
Small batch was delicious. We chose outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful weather. The food and service were both top notch - if you do choose to stay inside you will enjoy the decor as well. I would definitely come again!
Thank you, Angela! Our outdoor seating will be available all throughout fall, we look forward to you dining with us again soon!
This was our first experience at small batch, and we loved it! The restaurant is beautiful, all the staff was courteous, and the food was delicious. We will definitely be returning to this establishment.
Thank you! We look forward to you dining with us again soon!
Love the cocktails!….Food is always fresh & flavorful!!!- Delish!
Thank you! We take pride in our fresh, localized ingredients. We look forward to you dining with us again soon and try our new fall cocktail!
This place was a great find! The décor and atmosphere are wonderful. The staff was friendly and the food was even better. Definitely get the monkey bread, it was out of this world. Highly recommend this place - we went for brunch on a Saturday afternoon and had no problem getting a table. They also have outdoor seating as well. Give it a shot!
Thank you for your feedback! We agree, the monkey bread is amazing! Hope to see you again soon!
I went a few months ago and really enjoyed my meal. This was my second time here so wanted to try something different. I had to go with the charbroiled oysters again because they were so good the first time. For my meal, I ordered the avocado toast with bits, seeds and honey. What a great choice!
Thank you! The grilled oysters are always a must have!
One of our family places on date night or with the kids . The service is absolutely amazing always with a smile . The staff knows there foods & drinks ! Highly recommend ☺️
