Great experience overall and thank you so much for the added little donut birthday with the candle. Nice touch!
Lunch was amazing! I got the turkey sandwich and salad and it was so fresh and satisfying! We also got the crispy sandwich and it was very flavorful. Great ambiance - highly recommend!
Food was delicious: server was very helpful, overall great experience.
This was our 2nd visit to Somerset and it was just as good as the first time. The service was friendly and efficient, the appetizers were excellent and the main course was nicely prepared and tasted great. I just wish the room was a little quieter. Perhaps next time we'll request the upstairs seating.
Beautiful place and space! Definitely dress up. Non-casual attire suggested. Moderately priced along with friendly staff. Will be dining here again.
Good food go often
I went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and it was perfect. They even placed his name on the menu wishing him a happy birthday along with a cake. Overall a wonderful experience with delicious food.
Another outstanding lunch at Somerset. Delicious chicken and rice soup and a wonderful kale and brussel sprouts salad. And a shout-out for their bread, which is delicious. And a scrumptious trifle to finish the meal. It was a wonderful birthday meal!
Outstanding food and service. Ambiance is fantastic.
Great food and service in an elegant, modern setting. The menu features a variety of small and large plates.
awesome. amazing food and great service! get the mango cheesecake pop tart and crispy chicken sandwich!
Food and service was above average. Ambiance is excellent (really cool bar). Value wasn’t great, especially on the drinks ($15 for a very subpar Bloody Mary). But overall I would recommend and go back.
Benjamin and Bradley were awesome and the food was amazing. Great ambiance and get the meatballs and little gem salad.
A great find. Tasty meals with interesting and thoughtful mixes of flavors and ingredients. And they signed our menus with Happy Anniversary which was a great touch!!
This place is simply amazing. Had a very pleasant dinner here. Food was amazing and our server was perfect with the service.
Wonderful!!! 100% would recommend
Great fried chicken and French toast!
Food was mediocre at best - overpriced for the quality. Will not return. Great space and wine list.
Somerset started off by making us wait for 20m for our confirmed reservation. Drinks were tasty while waiting. Once seated, we reviewed the limited menu but decided on a good course of action. Appetizer and Pasta courses arrived promptly. Odd that multiple people would come to our table but take only "some" things away that we were done with. Delay to entree course and then our server sort of went missing. More folks visited the table, again clearing only some things at a time. Long delay to dessert course and also long to place that order. No offer of coffee whatsoever. Just sort of odd pacing and things that you'd assume would happen didn't. Things typically offered weren't. Rhythm just seemed off, but food was good overall.
Love love love this place! Out of a 10 it’s a 15!
The manager and waiter very polite. They sat us a half an hour after original reservation and offered a complimentary chefs dish. Great service!
Sat us by doors and it was zero and the draft made the entire dinner uncomfortable! Additionally food was good but not worth the cost...
The ambiance and service were great. The food was inconsistent. Steak was chewy and overcooked. Hamachi crudo and lobster pasta special were good. Flatbread was a little heavy on the onion. Probably a better place to hang for a nice drink than a full-fledged meal.
Food was amazing.
Very swanky and stylish digs with a polished industrial vibe. Service was phenomenal - we literally ordered exactly what our Server recommended and could not have been more satisfied. We will be back!!
Service was exceptional and the food matched. I will return as the experience was well worth the cost.
I love the lunch specials at Somerset and the bread is yummy!
Went there for restaurant week and I can’t say enough about how good the options were. My favorite was the flat iron grill steak... I normally like my steak rare but this was medium rare and to die for. The only thing I would suggest is to make the plates a little smaller since it was four courses but obviously I didn’t need to eat it all... I’ll definitely be frequenting it a lot more.
perfect for a Sunday Brunch! Ideal place to showcase the city to out of town visitors
Went for brunch for a friend’s birthday and it was meh. Just OK. My friend got avocado toast and I got shakshuka basically (baked eggs) and honestly, it wasn’t great. Can’t say I’d like to go back but if I did, I’d try the chicken and french toast for brunch or the burger for dinner.
We have dined at Somerset before, and found the atmosphere to be charming and the noise level totally acceptable. However, this time it was a noise level that was way too loud. We did request from our waitress that the volume be adjusted downward, but that did not happen. It really impacted the conversation at our table to the point that we couldn’t wait to leave.
Server was great! Food was amazing!
Food was amazing, one of the best omlets I’ve ever had. I made a reservation and they didn’t seat me until 10 minutes after my reservation. The restaurant is so cute! The noise was a little loud.
Amazing service. Waitress so friendly and attentive. 10/10 dining experience, per usual.
Love it here and will return time and time again, but we felt like we were being rushed out and not being allowed to linger and enjoy our coffee for the sake of turning over tables
Great service. Accommodating. Beautiful room and nice ambiance.
Was great - loved our server and the food was great!!
Food great. Waiter was fantastic and courses everything out very nicely.
Excellent creative approach to food, ambiance, service.
The restaurant itself was nice, but I think I had higher expectations as far as it looks.
The food was decent, the Sunchoke soup and the Branzino were good.
I would recommend to try this place, and I'm glad that I did (I've been wanting to go here for awhile now), but I probably wouldn't go back.
