    We went for brunch and we sat outside which was lovely. The row of tables where we sat were very close together and unfortunately the lady at the table next to us did not have an "inside voice" so I can pretty much tell you everything there is to know about how her weekend went. Our waitress told the other table next to us all about the specials and then came to our table to take our order. I had to ask her about the specials. The bar took forever with the drinks, ours and everyone else around us. We both got the hash and eggs. The potatoes were hard and flavorless and our over medium eggs were over hard. Both dishes. The table next to us had undercooked sausage that was pink inside. And those famous cinnamon rolls? Nowhere to be found. They were not on the menu or for sale in the front. So maybe this was an off day? Either way, we don't feel the need for a second try.

    Food was excellent as always. We had flounder and steak. Server did his job but seemed very disinterested and disconnected. Basically he seemed like he didn’t want to be there. Didn’t offer any explanations on menu items and when ask about items, for instance, the flounder, he said oh it’s grilled, you’ll like it. No explanation of any other detail even when I asked.The server at the table next to us was friendly and vibrant and took a lot of time discussing and explaining the menu to them. We had to wave him over multiple times to get drink refills and our check.

    Manager sat a couple before us after we were there for awhile. Looked like they knew each other. Took 10 minutes to get waited on. 30 minutes before food came out. Saw couple sat before us had drink and food quickly. It’s one thing to take care of your friends but every customer should feel welcomed and be taken care of the same. Menu changes without notice from what’s on the website. Menu not friendly if you have a diet plan or vegan. Customer behind us needed a few request and manager advised they could not meet those requests . I work customer service and the customer needs should be attempted to be met. This was just a straight no. Like I said you want to like this place but it’s hard to when there are better places around.

    Unbelievable experience!!! If food is your happy place consider Topsoil the Disney world of food! Unreal flavor profile within every layer of ingredients , with every course. I left wishing I had more room to try every item presented that evening. Such care, thought, and passion put into each menu item slaps you right in the pallet with the very first bite. I’m so impressed by the use of local and self grown items used to create such wonderful plates of food. There literally should be a line around the block to get in Topsoil every night. If you are looking for the BEST restaurant in Greenville I found it. TOPSOIL, thank me later!

    This was the first time to Topsoil. We had heard that it was a vegetarian restaurant and had never ventured to check it out. That was a bad decision on our part! They have a wide variety of options and we enjoyed all, with the exception of dessert which we skipped. We all had special cocktails, share some appetizers (spreads and smoked trout) and split our meals between full entrees and small plates. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back in the future to try something new.

    The salmon and the hash were excellent. The omelet was uninspired, as was the breakfast sandwich. The potatoes that were served with the omelet were at room temperature, but my wife didn't want to "be a bother" and decided not to send them back, as she was hungry and didn't want to wait any longer to eat. The first servings of coffee were TERRIBLE, but, when the waiter finally returned to our table, she got us some from a fresh pot, and it was good. Our waiter did tend to disappear.

    6:15 reservation. Arrived promptly and seated immediately. Ordered drinks right away. Drinks came in 45mins. Server apologized and so did the GM as he brought the drinks. Was not busy enough to explain drinks delay. I asked GM to comp drinks for delay and first visit with our guests. GM did not comp for delay. Would not go back unless we’re sent comp drinks.

    our server, Kirsten was extremely knowledgeable concerning the menu and preparation, she recommended that we share all of our courses to give us a chance to try more of the menu items. we started with the chicken liver pate which was excellent. our next course was the carrots which were cooked perfectly with a subtle ginger sauce. the Brussel sprouts were charred perfectly in a slightly spicy sauce with hints of orange. the swordfish was cooked perfectly. unfortunately, all of the courses were nice sized so we ran out of room for desert. everything was wonderful and we plan to return.

    We did the tasting 5 course meal. It was Asian inspired. Should've taken some pictures. The dishes were beautifully plated. 1st course was a salad with mussel. Good combination. 2nd - was bamboo with some type of puree to make it look like like bone marrow. 3rd - was Shitake mushroom and tofu soup - had a little kick to it. 4th- duck. The flavors were bursting in my mouth, just a little disappointed that the duck was very chewy (never had one this chewy), but still delicious. 5th- coconut flan - WOW!!! Would definitely be back to try another Sunday tasting menu before I leave this state.

    The first time I ate at Topsoil it was a fantastic experience in every way ... food, service, atmosphere. That was an impromptu dinner experience seated at the bar. This time was for brunch. I sat at the bar again (which I usually prefer at restaurants) but the food was just ok. I had high expectations coming in because we had been told during our first experience that the Sunday brunch at Topsoil was amazing and far different from other local restaurant Sunday brunches. Not so. Pretty much the same as anywhere. I'm not complaining, mind you, because the service was really good and the value was good. I'm just saying the food didn't measure up to my initial dining experience there. I will go back but not for a Sunday brunch.

    Topsoil was very yummy. The chargrilled romaine salad I had was amazing and my hubby and I split a 20 oz Ribeye for 2 which was very good, a little too fatty but otherwise delicious. Service was very attentive and friendly. Wish the menu selection was slightly larger. Overall, a very nice experience and we’ll be back.

    Overall a great dining experience. Staff was welcoming and knowledgeable about the food. Liked the way the menu was set up with Shareables, Small Plates, and Entrees - and all plates were portioned to where you got just enough. Both apps we had we great but I have to admit the Chicken Liver Pate was stellar. Smooth, rich, and the bread with it was perfectly charred. Probably my favorite dish of the evening. The Black Garlic Pasta was unlike anything I have ever tried - and I mean that in a good way. Complex flavors yet perfectly balanced, would definitely recommend trying this! Roasted carrots were the best I’ve had and I get those every chance I get. Pork cheeks were salty for me but still very good. Meat fell apart under a fork and the rest of it melted in your mouth. And that salsa verde had enough kick to toe the line of spicy but not enough to keep you away. Overall a very good experience. Ambience was nice and never felt rushed to order or pack up once we finished eating. Hope to be back the next time we are in town!

I know that is not your target audience, but it would be great for parents and grandparents on special occasions to have a children’s menu! Sausage was to salty to eat! Avocado toast was delicious.
