My husband and I had a Sunday morning breakfast date that we try to do regularly. Somerset was a great choice for us this past Sunday. The service was outstanding, food was great, and the restaurant was beautiful.
We will soon be back for dinner!!

We sat upstairs because it was quieter and I had family and friends in from out of town. The service and food were excellent. My former college roommate who was visiting from Cleveland said our dinner at Somerset was a high point of the weekend.

The interior was absolutely stunning. Service was fine—friendly, but not attentive. We ate there for breakfast and the quality of the food did not match the price point. It was a completely unmemorable, average breakfast.

This was my second visit to Somerset, and I liked it as much as I did on the first visit. The food is excellent, the service is outstanding, and the ambience is lively but not over the top.

My friend and I went for brunch before a theater performance. The atmosphere is light and bright and the background noise level is high but it was easy to hold a conversation. I had
the burger which was good and done to my likeness and my friend had the veggie scamble
which she gave high marks to. They have a nice wine by the glass selection though rather
expensive. The service was good and I would like to try it again for lunch or dinner.

During our brunch service, we were surrounded by tables with children. Our table had 2 toddlers as well. The restaurant seemed extremely accommodating to kids. I went to take my son to the restaurant to change his diaper and was disappointed to find out that there were not changing tables in any of the stalls. Pretty shocked to see that and it really made us think differently about this brand new restaurant, catering to a hotel community as well as situated in a neighborhood filled with young kids

Fantastic setting and service, spatially very appealing. Food was unique for what I'm used to seeing on menus. For example, brick chicken for 2 infused with sausage layer underneath the skin. The price was very reasonable given the quality of the food and service provided. Great upbeat music in the background as well. They even brought a nice finishing touch dessert for my wife and a "birthday wishes" menu to boot.

The design of this restaurant is top notch & very well thought out. Every time we go here I love to look at all the details over and over again. Color palette is perfection BTW!

Service can be a little slow sometimes but overall everyone is super nice.

I don’t love their breakfast options I’ve tried & prefer to do lunch here. Their sandwiches & pastas are mostly really great. They have a broccoli side dish with yogurt that I’m borderline obsessed with..so creative and tasty.

Drink menu is also very appealing & thoughtful.

Recommend!

We went for brunch on our 3-year anniversary. I included the occasion in our reservation. We were also on a time crunch due to afternoon plans. The service was wonderful - friendly, professional and timely. We were seated immediately upon checking in. Our server brought us complimentary champagne and wished us a happy anniversary. There was a card from the restaurant wishing us a happy anniversary as well. The restaurant itself is absolutely stunning. Lots of natural light and a bright interior.

This was our first trip to Somerset. It’s a beautiful venue with service to match. One member of our parry was ill and couldn’t make it. Our waiter brought us two packaged food boxes to take home to him. The manager circulated to make sure everyone was taken care of. We had the avocado toast and egg breakfast - some of the best anywhere. This is a beautiful, modern restaurant. There is care to detail in addition to quality food. We will return no doubt about that.

My wife and I celebrated our third anniversary at Somerset over the weekend, and had a great experience. The staff congratulated us throughout our visit, treated us to a complimentary glass of champagne, and overall just made us feel at home. The food was excellent but what stood out to us was the service from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

I had often passed by this building before the renovations and thought that it would never be a place to which I would be attracted. Well times have changed and not only did we have a great experience this past weekend but I will be back! The room is gorgeous, the service was great, the drinks and food very, very good.
