                                            I am rating our overall experience poorly due to the fact that we were seated 27 minutes late after our reservation time. The hostess never checked on us and didn’t provide any apologies. Some friends had a similar experience a few weeks ago and I now understand why they were also disappointed by this restaurant. Once seated, our waitress was professional and the food was fine.

                                            We had expected everything to be of extraordinary quality. That wasn’t our experience.The risotto Milanese he seemed off to us. The lamb Sugo on the strozzapreti was too dry. The music was far too intrusive. The decor was somewhat jarring. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Altogether not as good a meal as we had been hoping for

                                            Our first time at The Tailor's Son. We liked the food - simple, clean, excellent. Had a salad, burrata, rotolo, pulpo (octopus) and all were good. Service was attentive. Ambience is very nice - white tile on floor and walls. You should try it! Only complaint: our first two courses arrived at the same time, as did our second two courses. Wine list was fairly short but a really excellent selection of Italian wines, some not common on restaurant menus.

                                            The special dishes at Tailor's Son are really special--don't be shy of the Burrata toast or the Risotto Verde!--and the more typical dishes are fine. Culinary bravery will be rewarded here!

                                            This place is on its way up - great spot, wonderful open ambience and the food was very good. It hasn't figured out brunch yet (menu a bit limited, no bloody mary's jet, etc.). The service and staff were fabulous. So all the components are there - now it needs to nail brunch and it will be great!

                                            Everything was delicious, but the risotto blew me away. Definitely add the osso buco!

                                            Great, creative food at an affordable price. Staff is lovely. First time I went it was amazing and wanted the same dish I had previously, but they continue source local food and serve it creatively with great flavors. 100 stars!

                                            Great menu and ambiance. Love the cocktails including negroni options. Frutti di mare risotto was really great, as well as angolotti. Critiques: staff was really really busy, Olive oil cake was a bit dry, carpaccio was underseasoned and needed acid. Lamb ragu was too salty but still delicious.

                                            Jaxon did a great job; good menu knowledge and his wine recommendation was spot on. The Octopus and the Sformatto were great; everything else was underwhelming. Table wasn't ideal... we sat by the host stand.

                                            Fourth trip there and once again, almost perfect. Frito misto was bland, but everything else, risotto, asparagus and pasta dishes were perfect.

                                            Service was excellent but the Cornish hen entree was tough and needed to be replaced which was done no questions asked.

                                            It is a very popular spot. Service was great but unfortunately we had to wait awhile to sit in the parklet area. Food was tasty and rich. The pate crostini was one of my favorites.

                                            Had a great date night here. The food was DELICIOUS! The wine and cocktails were also great. The only issue we had was our waiter taking our food / drink away before we were done.

                                            The entire night was a pleasurable experience. The serving staff was well informed of the menu and items and was more importantly keen eyed when it came to the service at the table. Good was well seasoned and tasty with clean flavors and the drinks were made by a professional. This is a must return!

                                            1st time here, and the place was great, from the moment we walked in, to the time we left. Initial thought was the restaurant was clean, bright, and really lively. The decor feels simple, yet elegant. The hostess was personable, and calming to deal with. The server was upbeat and attentive. He provided his recommendations, and knew the menu. The food was great. We had the salad w/anchovies as a starter & soft-boiled egg, and that was tasty! We had the halibut carpaccio which was fresh. We also had the Agnolotti Del Plin, which was pastas filled with veal & pork, in a red/orange sauce -- awesome texture and taste! Last, but not least, we had the Cornish Hen. The pieces were cooked perfectly, and the chimichurri dressing was really good.
