    Table they first sat us at wasn't clean. We moved. Service was slow and there were very few other customers there. Part of a hotel. Food was good, not great.

    No water provided upon sit down or even offered. Waiting around for server / staff to acknowledge a need; not the same spoon & cellar service we remember (long standing C&S patrons prior to extensive new management/ turnover) - dined here every week for years . … wanted to give it another chance. Chicken sandwich not great, fries soggy & undercooked. Salad was well done but salmon was not cooked properly. Low quality ingredients at higher prices than before. Not excited to return in the future.

    We have eaten here before and their menu has now been downsized. It appeared there was only one waitress and she had limited personality. Food was average. I ordered our meal and our meal and dessert came out at the same time before I even got my glass of wine. Probably won’t come back soon.

    Horrible experience. We waited over and hour for salads and never got any drink refills. We were the only people in the restaurant. When we decided we were going to go somewhere else we asked for the check and waited an additional 30 minutes. No one cared or was to be found.

    We made a reservation at 5:30 in plenty of time to attend a show at 7:30 at the Aronoff Center. We did not need a reservation as the restaurant only had patrons at one other table. However it took us 15 minutes to get 2 waters and one beer and 50 minutes get our meal. All we ordered was soup, tater tots and a salad. They were only providing the lunch menu as they explained they did not have enough staff to serve the dinner menu. My first experience at Spoon & Cellar was very positive. This, however, is enough to make me not return.

    Made reservations for a Saturday evening and we were one of the only guests in the restaurant. Very limited menu for 630pm. We asked if we had the correct menu because it said “lunch.” Only soup, salad and sandwiches to offer. Not the menu posted on their website.

    The service was friendly but unknowledgeable about the menu. She was also inattentive not checking on us plus she forgot to bring my wife her soup even after two reminders. Finally the food was very pedestrian. It was overpriced with respect to both flavor and quantity . Go to either Crown Republic or Rosie’s instead. They are right around the corner and are much better in terms of quality and value.

    There was not a lot of people, so the noise level was great. However, we were sat down and then ignored by a waiter and the manager for 20 min. Then once we got water, there was food stuck to the inside of my water glass. I brought that to the waiters attention. We order spinach dip. When it came out it looked odd like someone just laid cheese on top of a bowl and nuked it. I took a spoon to remove the cheese and look at the dip. It was all liquid with huge artichoke chunks. Not one piece of spinach. My husband asked if I order soup. No, it’s supposed to be spinach dip. I didn’t even taste it. Made the waiter aware we were leaving. I have no desire to return

    We ordered steak salad & marsala. The steak was cold & tough. The server said she had put it in for 'medium', but it was obviously "leftovers". More than 10 minutes later the marsala came to the table. It was better. We ordered a dessert, but had to leave before it came to the table. The place had a fairly large group in the bar having a happy hour, but other than that, there were only 6 tables of less than 4 patrons. It was disappointing. 3 years ago this review would have looked VERY different. They do have good cocktails & wine that are reasonably priced.

    They seemed to be only 1 waitress and she kept disappearing. We had put in our reservation that we had a show to get to and ordered right away but it still took over 30 minutes for soup and salads which was all we ordered. Food we got was good but part of our order was missing. She said the kitchen was new and she was kind enough to take 10%off our ticket for the inconvenience which was very nice. It wasn’t our normal experience there which was kind of disappointing

    The service and staff were excellent. The food was very hit or miss. Most of it was prepared well and tasty, but the spinach and artichoke dip had a large pool of grease in it that was impossible to get around. The steak and pork chop were very good, the sides (asparagus and mashed potatoes) were fine, not great. The skillet cookie dessert was excellent.

    We got to the restaurant and waited 15 minutes for a hostess to attend to everyone waiting. No one ever came so we left along with another two groups despite letting the nearby bartender know that we were all waiting. We continued to wait another 5 minutes. Very disappointed.

    Our reservation was at 730. We arrived at 720 and wasn’t greeted at the door until 740. There were other people waiting who just left before as because of the lack of acknowledgment. After sitting it took our sever another 10 mins to even greet us for our drinks. Once we did order - the food was great. Just wish the service was better
