    I would have rated a lot higher on service; however, we had to wait beyond our reservation time. We had to keep going and asking and checking because the tables were clear and no one was being seated. Eventually, they started sitting people and others were seated ahead of us. A little frustrating... However, the service was seated was superb.

    The Low Country Shrimp and Grits was absolutely delicious! If I’d had any of those warm, soft rolls left, I would have cleaned my plate with them…lol. Thank you for the great experience as a first timer to this restaurant!

    Excellent food and service! Nice touch to speak with the chef at the table. Noise level from the adjoining hotel was distracting. In all fairness this wasn’t something the restaurant could help. It seems the hotel was probably hosting a youth volleyball tournament.

    Although we had dinner near closing time, I have never been to a restaurant ( fine dining) where my waiter made me feel extremely unwelcome and he seemed put out by us being there! He was rude and did not seem to even care to wait on us. When I asked him a question he answered me by saying, “ you told me that already”! Never did he make us feel welcomed and if the tip had not already been included, he would not have seen much of one! He never checked to see if things were alright or even if we needed anything else! I had to flag him down to get our ticket. Breakfast the next morning was also interesting. When we were seated, no one told us it was a breakfast buffet and from where we were seated, you could not see the buffet. Our waitress was a dingbat. When I asked for a small orange juice, she said they only had it in a glass and did so want that? What?????? I had to ask other people daring about the buffet. They told me where it was. Extremely disappointed in the service at The House and I will never eat there again and will tell others my experience!

    It took 40 minutes to get our dinner (2 entrees only). The food was fairly good, but not worth the price. I would only eat here out of convenience at it is in the hotel. Otherwise, take a trip somewhere else.

    The dining experience was not as advertised. I ordered the pork belly appetizer. The kohlrabi Brussel salad was coleslaw, and the jalapeños were raw but advertised as fried. My entree (scallops dish) did not have the mushroom risotto as advertised. The food was cold as well. My server was fantastic, but the meal left me extremely disappointed.

    Super central location opposite the Hank Williams museum. Excellent menu including local Southern fayre. Service from Terrisha was faultless. Food was delicious and plenty of wine, beer and cocktail options. A little bit pricey but worth it. Would definitely return.

    Very nice place for lunch or dinner, staff was super friendly, our waitress. dedicated a lot of time to make sure we had everything we needed and checking in to see if we needed anything or refills on our drinks. The peach vinaigrette dressing was delicious, first time trying it and was not disappointed. I would highly recommend!

    I had reservations for 5 people and they sit us at a 4 person table. Asked to be moved and initially denied but was eventually seated correctly. Steak was overcooked and when I told my server he brought out temperature chart. I know how my steak should look and taste.

    We have eaten here twice in the past 3 yrs for Thanksgiving and were very pleased. However, Xmas was a different story. They ran out of prime rib as soon as we got there. They did get more, but by that time I had decided not to eat at all based on the rest of the dishes and comments from family that were eating. Chicken was dry, risotto was not creamy, basically just rice, the rolls were so hard they could break your teeth, nothing was appealing and all felt that it was a huge waste of money. 5 of us left and went to Waffle House, even the ones that had partially eaten. Seems that the shrimp was the only decent thing. Nobody wanted to even try the desserts. The wait staff were excellent and went out of their way to try and make it a pleasant experience. We will not be back again.

    Last minute reservation with over 22 of my colleagues and they accommodated all guest. Shootout to Emily for her professionalism getting us seated and fed. The food was great. The Brown Butter Barbecue Shrimp where amazing. I had the Gulf Seafood Risotto for and entrée. The restaurant is located in the Hotel Trilogy. The hotel looks amazing. Very contemporary boutique hotel. I can't wait to come back.

    We were charged for items we did not order. An item I ordered never arrived. The waitress spilled an entire class of wine on my son. The service was slow, we were almost late for our show even though our reservations were for 2 hours prior to the show. It was an awful experience.

    They uncharged the entrees by about $10 each. This happened to the table next to me also. They charged them for food never received. It took 1.5 hours to get the meal. We got there at 5 and had tickets to a 7pm show. I finally left at 645 and charged the meal to our room because they could not get the manager to look at the upcharged bill and we didn’t want to miss the show. I told them I had a shellfish allergy. I ordered a plain baked potato side and they brought me a crab stuffed potato which thankfully I noticed. It was also a $10 up charge. I had to change silverware And got an apology but this would have been disastrous if I had eaten shellfish. I would not recommend this place even though the food was really good. Poor service and in my opinion fraudulent up charging. I plan to contact Marriott.

    The meal at The House began well with delightful Duck Rolls and Cherry Pie drink, though a larger drink portion would've been nice. Server Fabiola was kind and attentive. I suggest management inform servers about food portion consistency for customer clarity. I queried Fabiola on entrée size; her response overestimated the actual quantity. The $31 salmon, asparagus, and bean entrée was mixed. The asparagus, large and well-cooked, exceeded expectations. Flavorful beans felt underrepresented in quantity. The salmon, while large, lacked depth in flavor, not meeting expectations for its price. Flavor ratings: beans 8.5, asparagus 9.5, salmon 4.5; quantity-price ratings: asparagus 6, beans 4, salmon 9. The evening declined when a hair was found in my companion's Mac and Cheese, impacting her appetite and our experience. Management's offer of extra beans on departure was a small consolation. Overall, while service and starters were great, the main course's inconsistent quality and quantity, plus the hair incident, marred our experience. The pricing heightened these disappointments. I hope this feedback aids improvement and wish The House success.
