Food was different and fabulous. Service was excellent. Only drawback is that all the hard surfaces make for unpleasant background noise. But the visual ambience is lovely.

The ambiance was great and so fun for a girls night. I could definitely see as a good cozy spot to take someone you are just starting to date that is little nicer. Servers followed all health protocols and were very attentive. We snagged some great pictures for our celebration. Recommend for a fun catch up night with friends or date night light food and drinks.

The food was surprising and wonderful, although a change from the previous concept at Maple and Pine. Tapas is meant to be shared and the portions were tasting size, so it's probably not the best for individuals who want a large entrée to themselves. They have a small but excellent selection of high quality but approachable wines, and tasty cocktails. Service was fabulous, and COVID precautions were respected by all. I highly recommend!

Our expierience at Quirk's Lobby Bar was outstanding. Our waitress made menu and drink reccommendations, everything that was brought out was delicious. The moivie playing on the ceiling, the pink touches, and the arches made our dinner out feel exptremely fancy and special. Will absolutely be dining here again.

The Quirk has transformed their outstanding Maple and Pine restaurant into what they now call the Lobby Bar. We visited on the first night excited to support them as loyal Quirk patrons. The menu now offers a range of appetizer/tapas small plates and desserts. While imaginative (think Italian-inspired pulled pork) the overall quality of the food was not up to Quirk’s best. The service, as always, was impeccable and they are taking smart COVID-19 precautions. Try it for sure.

In the context of COVID, the Lobby Bar provides perfect seating for social distancing. Our server was excellent and everything she was responsible for was done well. Unfortunately, the food had clearly been sitting in the kitchen long enough to become cool, which detracted from its taste. This was a shame because it really was flavorful. My pancakes were warm but the compote on them was cold. My husband's hamburger was warm but his fries were tepid (but still good). My son's hash had too much sauce and was lukewarm. Even with this temperature problem, the meal was delightful and I would definitely go there again.

Fantastic brunch service. The food was excellent - the gianduja pancakes were a particular standout. The coffee was good and their bloody mary has a very satisfying kick/bite to it. The interesting surroundings and friendly waitstaff also add to the experience. Highly recommended.

The food was decent-to-good but not great. The waiters were friendly but not super helpful--they didn't seem to communicate with each other or have a good grasp of what items had or hadn't been delivered to the table. We got the tasting menu with the wine pairing, and the wine was never paired with the food--it usually came out 5-10 minutes before the complementary dish, which was a bit frustrating.

The decor at Maple and Pine/Quirk Hotel is on point. It’s so lovely! The food was very underwhelming. I ordered the breakfast hash and it was under flavored, and the texture was stale. My husband ordered the french toast and the serving was very small compared to the price we paid for it. The staff were kind to us, but overall I was not impressed by our experience there.

My family and I went to Maple and Pine after seeing a show at Altria Theater. It was a perfect way to finish off the experience. We were all very pleased to see that, unlike many restaurants, the tables weren’t pushed together so patrons would be elbow to elbow. It’s actually quite open. The drinks and food were excellent—well worth the money. The atmosphere was classy and lively. I would definitely go back.

We went pre theatre on a week day. Our waiter, Tony, was attentive but didn’t hover. We had plenty of time to enjoy our meal, including coffee and dessert, without feeling stressed about making the show on time. The food was outstanding with great flavors and reasonable portions. We will return.

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience. The small plates were excellent. Our server came to check on us during the main course and could tell I wasn’t enjoying mine. (The duck was tough). She insisted that I order something else, and was so professional about the whole thing. The manager came over and apologized. The fish I ordered was much better. I would absolutely go back. If you like to try different things, this is the place for you!

Went for our anniversary and did the tasting menu with wine pairing. Very generous pours and portions. Very disappointed in the NY strip (undercooked and chewy) and the dessert tasted as if it had been sitting in the fridge uncovered and was very dry. Would try again and just order from the regular menu.

The pork snitzshel was outstanding, and probably the best ever. It was fork tender, and I actually did cut it with my fork. The creamy, buttery potatoes under it were to die for, and the apple, beet relish was a great finishing touch. Hubs had the rockfish, and the onion side was very good. Loved the salmon beet morsel before the entree. This place is even better than I remembered it two years ago.

Environment was boutique and loved the drinks! Hostess was delightful. We were there for drinks and our annual girl lunch (3 of us). We told the waitress this and explained we were not in a hurry. She rushed us all the way to the end and offered checks while one of us still had food. Hopefully it was just an off day. We all had the tomato soup. It was thick but flavorful. Two had the chicken salad and this was good. They cooked the fried chicken a second time already sliced and it made the chicken dry. For the money not a fan. Would go for a drink and hang in the lobby.

The restaurant was out of many individual ingredients in dishes (avocado, foam accompaniment to hash) as well as all but one of the desserts. Didn’t seem the most professional operation. If the food choices had been complete, it might have been a great place.

Christmas morning buffet breakfast at Maple and Pine. Food buffet was meh. Had the usual but food was not hot. Omelette station was backed up by 15 minutes. Omelette was good but made for awkward timing for everyone to eat. Decorations s and ambiance were great!
