    Spectacular ambiance and music. Some of the best coconut shrimp I’ve ever had. We always try to go to this place when we’re in town and it’s always a good time. It’s a just a really unique perfect place to go. Desserts are delicious - get that hot buttery cake w vanilla ice cream!

    Food was great. Server was great. But it took about an hour after our appetizer to get our main course. Don’t know what happened. Love the Tobacco Company normally. Hopefully it was a one off. We’ll be back though. Great place.

    Beautiful restaurant, unique bar underlit counter. Friendly, professional staff, but the waiter was a little slow with drinks, forgot one, and messed up on to go dessert order but corrected it.

    This is a very nice restaurant. My date and I went to this place and we agreed to return to this place. The staff was quite attentive. Food was very good and portions were good. Ambiance was very good. The only thing was rice that came with seafood - did not taste fresh. However, other main dishes and appetizers were excellent. Desserts were also very good. If you want coffee, it is not fresh or has good aroma. But it is manageable with desserts. These were minor things for us. Overall, if you are not too picky, this restaurant is a very good one, and recommended for many.

    Our food was good, however, it was a bit too heavy for my taste. I especially liked the spinach salad. The crab cakes were good but I feel there was too much breading (versus crab) and they were lacking seasoning.

    Great food. The wine I was served seemed to be the wrong one based on taste and the waiter didn't check to be sure it was the right one. He was not cheerful or respectful. But would definitely go back here. All the other staff was super and the food was really good.

    Our party appreciated having the option to be away from the noisy bar for our dinner. The 3rd floor was the perfect setting and our server was excellent. Chloe was very attentive to our needs and explained all of the specials for the evening. We had a delightful and relaxed dinner while being well cared for. We'll be back!

    I loved it. The interior is fascinating, a combination of old and modern tones. It has multi level balconies overlooking a central area and a fantastic chandelier hanging from above. The food (I had their rib roast) was cooked to perfection, the loaded baked potato was divine 😋. The service was very attentive and set just the right tone. If I lived in the area I would definitely return.
