    Meals served cold then replaced with an excuse that the lettuce on enchilada will be cold. The issue was that the enchilada were not warm

    My first time at one of the Genuine Concepts restaurants. What a great experience! The outdoor area one of the best I have ever experienced. Think upscale backyard. Comfortable and interesting. Great service from Mason - he was prompt, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. At our table we had the french dip, the roasted chicken, the fish and chips, mac and cheese, and the bolognese. Everyone (including two finicky teenagers) loved their food. We shared the butterscotch bread pudding and apple pie - great hits! We will be back!!

    Valentine's reservation and not a single employee said "Happy Valentine's Day" ? Odd With the price of the drinks and food I expected a bit more with regard to serving (and drink) portions. The calamari/pepper appetizer was overcooked albeit tasteful. My gals lemon pepper chicken left much to be desired - rather dry. My Rigatoni Bolognese was lacking in both pasta and meat from my perspective. Needless to say I most likely won't return to any of the VIG locations in the future although I have visited every one. Just a plain experience for the dollars spent...kinda sad

    They were understaffed did not order another round of drinks because the first round was so slow. Dot dinner came out before the appetizer. Both were good weight. Staff was not very attentive.

    Came in for Sunday brunch at 10:00..it was not busy at all. First thing we were told was that there was no coffee available. After about 30 minutes the coffee issue was corrected. It still took forever though. Our server was just absent a lot for a place that only has three occupied tables inside at the time. Then I was told that the breakfast item I wanted, Chilaquiles was not available as the menu stated, no green chili pork. She server suggested grilled chicken as a substitute so I agreed and they sent out nachos with grilled chicken. Very strange replacement but I was hungry at this point. My next complaint was about the live musician that was playing on the patio. He was actually very good, however when nobody is sitting inside, there is no reason to have the music so loud that people can’t talk. I saw staff trying to turn it down but to no avail. Not a fan after my first experience at Vig.

    Overall it was a nice experience. We enjoyed the ambiance & food tasting. Service was a little slow but it’s probably the is a shortage of staff — giving the benefit of the doubt. Friendly staff when you see one. Brought a guest from out of town, the guest enjoyed it — especially seated by the fireplace & offered gluten free food options — thank you ! We enjoyed it & we will be back !

    I planned a brunch with about 10 women for 11 AM on Sunday. The weather was absolutely beautiful to sit outside. Lots of women ordered the quiche, and absolutely loved it. Our server was delightful and so easy-going. they had live music by a guitarist, and he wasn’t too loud, so that was nice when conversing with each other. I will definitely definitely be back.

    Our waiter was inefficient and did not know the menu items well. They were out of several items due to a shift in the menu. I ordered the salmon ($27) and it was over cooked and very dry. I was very disappointed because the patio is great and a good place to take visitors. I miss the food of Ladera in this location. The food here was very marginal.

    Hey Susan , I am sorry to hear that your experience at the Vig North Central was less than stellar. We pride ourselves on the service we provide as well as the food. I understand a change in menu can be difficult as we get used to plates and grow to love them. I promise the changes that were made are all upgrades across the board. I would love to invite you to shoot me an email so that I can learn more about this experience, in the hopes to better train my team. Jared.barnes@genuineconcepts.us Thank You!
