Was there over a busy valentines weekend. Salad and pork chop entree was delicious. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Always a nice atmosphere and great value when you can bring your own bottle of wine or adult beverages. Generally reliable and consistent. Only had problem one time and they fixed it!

Wonderful! Went on Valentine’s Day so it was packed and noisy, but plenty of space for a smaller restaurant and the food was gourmet and tasty. You will spend some money, but it’s worth it for what you get!

I made reservations for a Valentines lunch date with my wife at Theo's - one of our favorite entries. But unfortunately, after ordering my soup came only lukewarm and had to be sent back for reheating. Then my wife ordered the special a Gluten Free (GF) crab cake sandwich (NOTE: she is highly allergic to gluten/wheat products and as always we informed the server). This time the server brought the sandwich out made on a wheat bread bun so we had to wait and have it completely reordered GF. We like Theo's because the owner/chef has always made sure that GF orders are in fact GF and she even has told us that her kitchen is set up with completely separate prep areas to insure no cross contamination for GF food safety. Overall, this visit was not even a satisfactory experience and not the quality food or preparation in service we have grown accustomed to at Theo's. We will be reluctant to visit there again or recommend Theo's to others but then again I suppose one unfortunate visit out of half a dozen or more is at best borderline and possibly worth reconsideration. -RAB

The crab cakes were the best we’ve ever had. You must try them out!!! I got the halibut special and also really enjoyed it. Had Thea cake for dessert - a mousse cake with Krispie crust. It was also rich, but quite delicious! Overall, we’d go back and highly recommend it!

On recommendation of our daughter-in-law and a gift card, decided to try out Thea. Found it located in a new area of homes and in a multi-shop setting that looks like city blocks revitalized by new businesses. Attractive and upscale look inside, we were welcomed and seated at a sunny table next to windows. Staff were great and our waitress Janet was really excellent in making us feel welcome and explaining menu options. A winery will soon open a shop nearby and Janet provided us a courtesy tasting of their wines. Although the restaurant was busy, noise was not a problem for conversation. Thea has rather a family feel and it was obvious that the owners and staff take pride in all they offer and do. Our tasty lunch selections were well prepared and presented. Portions were substantial and we ended up taking some home for another meal. Prices were in line with the dining experience and quality of our meals. Will return in the near future for a dinner.

We went to Thea during the lunch dinner split, there was a little confusion about the correct menu. When we take a break from low carb living it’s nice to find a good spot... Food was excellent! Will definitely go back there soon!

The steak was unseasoned and over cooked. They ran out of the appropriate side item and had to substitute a lesser item but didn’t adjust the price.

I Always know I am going to have the best dining experience when eating at THEA. From the super nice and personable hostess that greets you, to the incredibly experienced, friendly, and professionals servers. They take care of you as if you are the only table in the restaurant.

My husband and I dined at Thea Friday night. First off, we love the fact that it's BYOB, who doesn't? The decor is lovely, upscale and calming. We had the crispy Brussels sprouts with feta as an appetizer - like delicious little flavor bombs. We each had a salad which were delicious and different, mine had roasted butternut or some kind of squash in it which was lovely. For dinner I had the meatloaf which was just outstanding. It was very tasty, light and moist and came on a bed of savory bread pudding. The bread pudding had toasty crisp edges and was really delicious. Asparagus served as my side was plentiful and perfectly prepared. My husband had the pasta bolognese which he said was good but not great. The sauce was lacking some dimension we couldn't quite define.
Service was attentive. It was just a tad louder in the main dining room than I might like. Overall a really nice experience. We will definitely put this on the rotation.
