    Our server was a bit overworked, but he was kind and patient with our group. (We can be loud.) The food was delicious! Specifically the egg sandwich and grilled avocado. Yum! It was a little loud in the dining room, but that is to be expected on a busy Sunday afternoon.

    We've had the pleasure of dining at Summer House on two occasions, so far. Both times we found the staff to be welcoming, very friendly and helpful. The food was great!! Everything was fresh and delicious. We are looking forward to our next dining experience at Summer House.

    OMG!!!! I am a foodie and eat out a lot and never ever had a server like Alex H. He was outstanding and made sure that our service was his first priority along with his other customers. Alex went above and beyond and was truly genuine in his service. He should be highly commended by this restaurant for his outgoing personality. Alex should also be in charge or a leader in showing other servers on how to treat customers. I think if I had a bad day and came in, he would most certainly change my mood in seconds. Kudos to Alex.

    Celebrating my friends 21st birthday. Even though the date was valid on her ID as it was just her birthday on Friday, she could not be served with a vertical ID. We picked this place for dinner as it has a cute setting, good food and a likable drink menu but was not able to be served. As frustrating as it was, our service from there on our wasn’t great either. When getting the attention of a manager to ask for something since our waiter was no where to be found or hadn’t checked on us for a while, he came off as rude. We then watched as the manager snapped his finger, pointed at our table and said what we had wanted. That’s not a way to treat your staff.

    My family went for my husband’s birthday. I was a little wary that it might be too much for kids (11 and 8) but their kids menu was full of great options and they both loved things off the regular dining menu as well! The rigatoni was good but it’s hard for basic pasta to knock your socks off. The hamachi was delightful; light, fresh,and crisp! The fried chicken sandwich was superb and, despite “just” being kids chicken tenders and fries, my 8 year old declared it was the best he had ever had. It was actual chicken and not frozen garbage tossed in a fryer. We had sides of the shishitos, Brussels sprouts, and biscuits which all hit the collective spot as well. Service was attentive and prompt without being overbearing and I appreciated that the tables weren’t uncomfortably close to each other. Can’t wait to work our way through the menu at our future visits.

    Our server was really busy and forgot one of the kids items that was ordered. We had to call a few times to get things done. We ordered dessert and coffee and waited 20 minutes and still nothing and then asked him and it seemed like it was just waiting and he forgot to bring to us.

    Service was a bit slow. Not many vegetarian options and really nothing vegan. Ordered the kale salad without anchovy dressing and croutons and it arrived with two anchovies stacked on top of the kale. LOL Overall, a little too trendy and overpriced, but I will likely go there again due to its location.

    Server forgot my friends salmon on her meal/pasta. Took quite a while for it to come. Pasta was cold by the time it came on a side plate. Took salmon off the bill, should have taken the whole dish off. Not good customer service at all. Had to find server to get a refill of water or iced tea. This is the third time I have visited and been very disappointed.

    On arrival the. Host confirmed my seating preferences and asked if I wanted to sit in the main dinning room . I said yes . I was shown to my table it was not in the main dinning room it was directly outside the toilet on one table away from the kitchen . So the opposite to my request . This is despite walking past numerous open tables . I asked for another table which I was given . However I was still close to the kitchen and I assume the pot was as all through the meal I watched a procession of dirty pots , clean pots and folks going to the bathroom . After 35 mins from sitting down no food . Service was spotty . The server seemed to be spreed thin . The soup was at best tepid in temp and bland . The pizza was like the soup not hot . The only upside of the meal was the oatmeal and apple cookie . Overall a very disappointing meal .

    Alaskan halibut was clean and fresh and went very well with the champagne fennel creme. The portion was balanced and not excessive. Regarding the appetizer, the Parmesan truffle fries were tasty and crispy but needed a bit more sauce on the side. Cocktails were boozy but not strong or overpowering. All of this for a fairly reasonable price of 125$ for two people.
