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!

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!

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!

Been there a number of times. Really first poor meal I had. Veal meatball appetizer was tasty. Main courses were poor. Their wagyu brisket was a heavily peppered piece of corned beef. My girlfiends porkchop was very bland. Mac and cheese was overcooked to crunchy . Wait was 30 minutes to appetizer.another 30 for main couse.
I do hope they get back on track again.
Was a nice place to eat

Food and service was wonderful. Server did not chase us out and let us sit at the table for a while to talk. Outdoor space was nice and we appreciated the option to sit outside. Wasn’t too noisy except for a few disrespectful drivers beeping their horns excessively.

The perfect place to meet with friends and catch up. Not too quiet but not so loud you need to yell or struggle to hear conversation. The food was great. The stuffed squid was delectable. I wanted a sangria but they didn't have one. The server recommended the Teodora. It was not as sweet as a sangria but still enjoyable and tasty. I fine here a lot and I'm never disappointed.

Waiting 3 years for the tuna tartare to return to the lunch menu. Hoping also for a better mixologist.
On a positive note, the mussels were very good. I brought home a side of mac & cheese but would not order that again.

The food was exceptional. Drinks were just as good. The restaurant is limited in it’s ability to provide a more intimate atmosphere for outdoor diners due to it’s location (a mall parking lot), but they definitely do the best they can. The interior decor is very pleasing and I’m sure would make the dining experience even that much better. 5 stars across the board!

This place 😍
Seated right away, even though my husband was still parking the car. Mitchell, our server, introduced himself right away, brought menus and a pitcher of water. Came back and took drink orders. Very friendly, great suggestions, attentive. Mitchell was awesome. The drinks were on point. The food was amazing. Every. Single. Thing. Please try the Grilled Oysters and the Stuffed Calamari. They were exquisite. I had the pork chop with grits and my husband the brisket. Omg! Heavenly. Of course we finished with dessert - the BEST chocolate soufflé cake ever. I mean, if you haven't tried this place you need to get here, fast! Thanks for an amazing date night.

Ordered a turkey avocado bacon sandwich. Could barely see let alone taste the avocado. One slice of bacon covered about one third of the sandwich. The turkey was very dry and not enjoyable. At $18 for a sandwich these flaws are not acceptable.

Very good weekend brunch spot. Food is priced OK, but drinks are on the pricey and small side. French toast was very tasty, but didn't care for the slab bacon on the BLT-E. Service was attentive but not stellar. We'll be back but I rate this experience a 7.

We had a great meal and will be back. But our server didn’t pay attention to us. We had to continue to flag her down. She was fine when we asked her to help us but didn’t come by to see how we were doing.

Food was excellent. Pasta with pork and chili tasted too much like chili con carne and with pasta Nd less like bolognese so it was a little weird, but executed perfectly. Chicken great. Service excellent but too fast. Great value and nice space. A little loud for me but I think people like that.

The food is always consistent. Extremely flavorful and fresh. My only suggestion would be...more options for people who don't eat or unable to eat meat.

This is our go to whenever we are in the area .
The restaurant was busy , most tables occupied. A little noisier than most times
Our server Caitlin was personable, professional and accommodating
We had the burrata with figs , mouth watering
The pan seared cod was sumptuous.
We are very grateful that our allergy was acknowledged and accommodated.
All n all we have eaten just about everything on the menu throughout our visits. Never a bad meal.
Service is consistent.
Until next time….

Usually love Small Batch. Have been there dozens of times. Tonight the food was really bad. Soggy eggplant, cold fish, and salty steak, and the peach crisp was down right awful. Tasted like citronella candle and couldn’t even eat it. Really awful experience tonight. If this was my first time, I’d never go back.
