    Food was delicious! Everything came out hot with unique tasty flavors. Service could’ve been a little better. Super friendly but we did have to chase servers down to order more drinks and food. Overall ambience is the only downside. Feels a bit sterile and two of our guests were facing ugly boxes that had been left out toward the back of the restaurant. Also, DJ came as we were leaving and no one was there. That was a bummer. However, we will definitely be going back! Hope they up their game a bit and I know it will be a hotspot.

    Had a great evening. Food was all delish. They weren’t serving alcohol the evening we went but the food was great! Inside is alot nicer than the outside but we made the best of the outside experience. Weather was cool and its covered in case it rains.

    The wine was cheap and there was only ONE sake at a Japanese place! The food was sub-par at best. And the service was mediocre.

    Trying Warmack for the first time and while overall experience was good not something I will go back to. Food taste and quality was average but service was excellent. We had to take one plate back but staff was gracious enough to accept it and take it off the bill and provide recommendations.

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, if a tad loud. We had to wait quite a while for our table even though we had reservations and service was slow at times due to the business. Almost all the food was delicious, especially the sushi! Some dishes lacked value for the amount of food or protein included. Beer menu needs to expand. Overall it was good but could improve.

    Cute vibe. Wasn’t busy at all at dinner service. Server was very nice. We were served the wrong sushi roll and they corrected it promptly but noticed we were still charged for both (didn’t look at until after we left). Felt poor in taste…

    The food was good but drinks were very overpriced. Service was decent until the end where we felt a little rushed to leave, even though nobody was waiting on a table. Also, the people who come here are just weird?? I’m not sure why. Very little energy here.

    Warmack is a nice walk-to destination for folks in Elizabeth and Plaza Midwood. Expect a casual environment, including an outdoor area and friendly servers. The fish was fresh tasting and the dishes were interesting and good.

    Overall, we loved the Warmack & will be back. Entrees were pricey but lived up to the hype. The OG sushi burrito & the whole fried snapper were incredible. We were only disappointed by the beer menu (no IPA crafts), and more so the sake menu (only a canned sake). Cool spot.

    The vibe was energetic and the ambience was nice but a little loud at times (all those hard surfaces).The service was good as was the food, albeit a little overpriced. The biggest disappointment of the evening was being unable to get my first three red wine selections (this seems to be an issue with several restaurants lately).

    The service and drinks were on point! The food was….well…meh. I am not used to needing to add salt/pepper to my meals. Both of our meals needed seasoning. We did not bring our leftovers home. So unfortunately the bland food made this dining experience less favorable.

    looking for a aesthetically pleasing restaurant turned lounge?! The Warmsck is the place to go. I had an absolutely wonderful experience there with great service, quality of food/cocktails and the vibe in itself. My favorites from the menu was the spring rolls , pork dumplings and the wargarita cocktail. I also tried the gyudon bowl which was super delicious as well. When I go back I would like to try their terminator roll as that is the number 1 best seller on their menu. George (the manager) , Mimi (waitress) & Keith (mixologist) left a great impression on me and even more of a shoutout to my special cocktail Keith made me. This restaurant is one of relaxation and laughter no matter who you are but with great food and even better cocktails. I WOULD definitely go back and would recommend you all check them out too. It’s a great place for date night , solo vibes and even girls night out. Live DJ on Friday and Saturday from 10pm to close! Great indoor/covered outdoor seating. Reservation preferred but not necessary.

    My husband and I had a dinner reservation and arrived on time. Our table wasn’t quite ready so the manager offered to comp us a drink at the bar while we waited, which was a nice gesture. After a short wait, we were seated and placed an order for an appetizer to share. We got the tenderloin skewer and it was delicious. For main dishes, we ordered the poke bowl and the salmon and Brussels sprouts bowl, both of which were great. The Brussels sprouts were some of the best I’ve ever had - they melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back to try some of the other dishes.
