    It is in the best location in town, but comes across as a bit stuffy, with the brunch good, but not outstanding and the service good, but not outstanding for the price and location. The vibe isn’t very cheerful inside, and although beautifully decorated, it is a little too much on the “pink fancy.” The windows are overly tinted, so each time you pass by on the street, it looks a little dark and a bit empty instead of warm and inviting and fun. Over the holidays, you kind of expect it to be decorated for Christmas with fun music playing and maybe some holiday specials to make a meal there feel like a celebration, but there was none of that.

    Maybe it was an off day? My gumbo was cold, the main course took forever and the crab cake just wasn’t good. The place is beautiful. I wish that the food and service were better. I won’t go back.

    Service wasn’t what it normally is, but the staff recognized that and made up for it- we waited over an hour after ordering starters. The food as always was outstanding, and I was pleased with how they handled it the service issues.

    Drinks take a while because the Southern Bar does not prioritize the restaurant. I ordered my steak medium and it came out rare. My husband’s was medium rare so I decided to switch with him rather than send mine back. It was also very empty on a Friday night. The desserts were not very exciting. It will be hard to go back with so many other great fine dining restaurants in the area.

    Oyster appetizer was amazing, duck was to die for and so was the Cioppino! Deserts were not so great. The custard was decent but the chocolate tart was not good. Service could have been better. Overall, I am definitely looking forward to going back.

    We made a 12 o’clock brunch reservation on a Sunday. The hostess promptly took us to a table. After reading other reviews I was afraid it would be very noisy and crowded but pleasantly, it was not. The dining room is light filled and beautiful. The food is the reason for the highest marks. I had the best crabcake I’ve ever eaten! Just keep in mind the portions are very small, which I enjoyed because it allowed me to actually have three courses. The chocolate biscuit, crabcake and apple Galette were all perfectly executed. My friend had the shrimp Caesar salad and it was also delicious, but again very small portion. The service was another thing. I do not appreciate having my waitress come over while half the food is on my plate asking if they can bring me the check, but I’m welcome to stay as long as I want. My friend and I had not seen each other in a long time and were catching up over lunch, so yes we were eating pretty slowly. But again the restaurant was not full, no one was waiting for a table and I don’t like being asked to pay my bill when I still have half a plate of food in front of me. Mind you the waitress did not ask me if I was going to have dessert (which I was!) but just assumed since we were eating slowly we were not ordering anything else and wanted us to take care of the check. This would not deter me from going back though. The food was marvelous.

    This was our 2nd Sunday brunch visit and admittedly a much better experience this time. First, we did notice the noise level was more quiet, but it could have been due to not all tables were full either. Secondly, we enjoyed meeting Seth the server. He was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and honest when asked about specific items. And finally, the food was far superior and portions more generous than our 1st visit. Do not miss the ‘Warm sticky bun with bourbon caramel sauce’ appetizer. These are only 15 made each day on the weekends. We would go back just to eat one of these again. Absolutely delicious!! I had the Salmon avocado toast & my wife the omelette with Gruyère cheese. Both were very high quality. They do seem to be improving their wine/drink menu with more appropriate pricing options from our last visit. Overall, a much better experience and we will return again soon.

    The brunch from hell. It took over 2 1/2 hours for brunch. They ran out of one item on menu and food was delivered at different times. Only one server and service was almost non existent. Took obout 30 minutes before anyone even offered us water much less a cocktail. Won’t be back.

    I have waited to review this restaurant given that it is new and staffing is so hard now. The food is great, but the service is not up to par with other restaurants in the area. Servers are not familiar or able to describe dishes on the menu. We got our starters at the same time as our entrees. Our server never checked on us. The bar is also an issue. The previous restaurant in this space had its own bar. Gloriette shares its bar with the hotel. We were here for Sunday brunch and still received our wine at different times after a long wait. During busier bar times this has been even more of an issue, both as a patron of the bar and of the restaurant. Being a fine dining restaurant with prices to match, they really need to bring their service up to par.

    We had a lovely dinner at the Gloriette. We went early so as to avoid the crowds, so it was very quiet. Our waitress was excellent and very familiar with the menu. She had lots of recommendations and suggestions. She clearly had sampled most everything on the menu. It is a little on the pricey side, but worth it. The only improvement would’ve been to have had a little more time to enjoy our cocktails before our appetizer/salad were served.

    Delightful atmosphere, service very good. Small but fairly priced wine list. Food was fair at best. Appetizers good; Caesar salad heavily over dressed. Flounder ??? (thickest flounder fillet we’ve ever seen) was dry, tasteless, lacking any sauce, not worth the $41 price. Desserts good. Very slow evening, for a Thursday.
