    Terrible experience for my birthday lunch. The service wasn’t good which made the whole experience bad. Our waitress took forever to take our order and then got my husbands order wrong so we had to wait longer. The drinks were small for the price. At the end the waitress took my son’s food when he wasn’t even done eating. My friend ordered 3 margaritas but he said that when he got his drink it just tasted like lime juice with no tequila. I will not go back there.

    Food is delicious. Service is outstanding. Outdoor atmosphere is the best, but a little noisy due to bar. Indoor dining is a little cold, tables too big, small booths would be better.

    The service was horrible. Very disappointing as we love the food here. Our waiter Carlos barely checked on us even though we were waiting for a long time for the food. The hummus appetizer even took a long time to come out. When the food came out it was not the entire table at the same time. Two at a time came out so by time the last dish came out the first ones were cold.

    Patio dining seems to be more fun than eating inside although the noise level and weather can be impediments. Overall, food was good. Artichoke heart appetizer was a complete bust; more crispy batter pieces, virtually no hearts. Jake, our waiter was attentive, accommodating, and available.

    The wait staff sunk the experience for us. The server took the drinks menu out of my hand and handed it to my spouse. At one point they asked how everything was, but didn’t wait for the answer and turned their back while we were answering. The food was tasty, but the staff was not attentive nor didn’t seem to care. My dollars will go somewhere else.

    Had a great brunch for Easter. Didn’t know The Point had breakfast! There was a lot to choose from, had several specials and fresh baked scones that were delicious. I’d recommend The Point for brunch - give it a try!

    First time in, great place! The featured bar menu was awesome. We had a couple of smoked old fashions and Irish coffee. Brussel sprout appetizer was very good, they has a little spicy kick! Dinner wedge salad with tritip and steak dinner with scallop potatoes. Really good food. Mathew took really good care of us.

    Great spot. Brussel sprouts and the beet salad were fantastic and what our table enjoyed the most. Short rib was also great. Cocktails were well crafted. I always enjoy a bar that stuffs their own olives with blue cheese. We will be back.

    The food and drinks were very good , the drinks were very subtle but very sweet. Only downfall is they did take a long time to get to us but they made up with great service and great food. We love coming here and we only experienced one hiccup but we were very understanding. We come here annually and it’s the perfect place for a nice dinner

    I reserved this spot for a special someone. None of us live in Fresno but have some family in Fresno. 10 of us met. The service is great! For the hostess to the sever. The place is clean. I booked brunch. It was a safe, simple brunch. No side options, portions are small. Prices are not high but I see why. I wouldn’t recommend a group goes there who is hungry, eat before wait a couple of hours then go to get a light meal, snack. I would say two or three people should go then order an extra plate to share for satisfaction. Staff is kind and good is neat and safe.

    Food was great, so was our server & the atmosphere. I gave 3 stars because I expect to be acknowledged when I approach a hostess. I gave the benefit of the doubt & allowed staff to finish there discussion but after it was clearly over I continued to stand in silence and not be acknowledged.

    Very busy. Due to the holidays? Long wait for server, orders, and between courses. Salad had too much dressing, and steak (while cooked perfectly), was too tough. Been here multiple times and have been extremely satisfied, just won't return during holidays.

    We've been here a couple of times now, and the service always great, food delicious, and ambiance on the patio is beautifully embellished with lights and a water fall. Even though it's starting to get colder, they had heaters around the tables that made it comfortable and enjoyable to be outside. We will be back soon!!

    Food was overpriced and not portioned. Our table looked at the food, underwhelmed what we all ordered. Service was quick. Some food was bland and mush. The only highlight to the place was the ambiance. Will come back when they add more food to the plates.

    We were visiting Fresno, CA and decided to try Saturday brunch. We were not disappointed. We made reservations and enjoyed the beautiful and relaxing patio along with delicious food. We experienced great service; including a “fly fan” to keep the flies away. We truly enjoyed brunch and would definitely recommend this place!
