It is slow and waiters do not seem to happy when called if needed. I felt uncomfortable to ask for anything. I hope it gets better because I love the ambience and food is good.

We were a party of four. The ambiance was lovely. The food was delicious! We were surprised that our waiter brought the bill to our table when we finished our main course. He neglected to ask if we wanted anything else. We had to ask for coffee. After finishing our coffee we were asked to leave since it appeared that we were finished and just talking. We were told a large party was coming in and they needed our table. We arrived promptly at 1:00 and were asked to leave at 2:20. According to the website parties over 3 people have a reserved table for 2 hours. Unfortunately this was not the case for us. It was quite disappointing!!

Although our avocado toast was terrific our two salads left much to be desired. Basically a ton of lettuce with just a few other ingredients The baked apples were more like apple compost and the croutons had no flavor and were soggy. And the prices for salads were way out of line for what they were. Too bad as such a cute place. Will try it again ( without ordering salads ) and hope better eating experience

The service is always great and I enjoy the food. This time, however, my burger was over cooked and dry. The manager took ownership of the issue and discounted my meal slightly. I really like the atmosphere and will give them another chance as I feel this was an anomaly.

After an initial greeting, our server seemed to forget we were there. When she finally came over to take our drink orders, we waiting 15 minutes to receive our drinks although we were sitting 6 feet away from the bar and could see that the bartender wasn't busy. After we placed our food orders, we waited 45 minutes while we watched other tables that were seated after us receive their food in a timely fashion. After we asked the server what was going on, our food arrived but it clearly had been sitting for a while. Items that were supposed to be hot were lukewarm and items that were supposed to be cold were room temperature. The food tasted good despite the serving error. Finally, we had to ask for our check and then wait more time for it to arrive and for our payment to be processed. I am sympathetic to understaffing and supply chain issues in this day and age. But the proper protocol is to inform the diner - not to ignore the table and wait to be asked about food issues. Our server was pleasant but completely ineffective. We were friends dining together who wanted to catch up so we didn't mind a long leisurely dinner. But we did mind being completely overlooked and our tip, unfortunately, reflected that. TBH, we left a full 20%, but I have been leaving 25-30% during the pandemic to reflect my appreciation for restaurant workers.

But the food is very mediocre: salmon overcooked, boring pasty bread, bland entree salads. The mushroom burger is great, and soup was good, but they need to work on providing consistent food quality.

Food on the floor, dying plants on tables, no paper towels in bathroom - it was just not a nice experience. Food was OK - as expected. Our server was very good - and seemed like he was the only one hustling. Hostess is not welcoming. With the amount of money Anthopologie brings in, you'd think they could offer a better café experience.

We had to send one dish back to the kitchen, since the chicken was dry, hard, and smelled old. They immediately replaced the dish with a different meat source.

Very satisfied with this restaurant, we will be back.

Both of us had shrimp & grits entree which was excellent. Nice portion of grilled shrimp over silky grits. Yum. And the warm bread, served in a flower pot, is delish! Attentive & friendly service. Highly recommended.
