Terrible. No better than Applebee’s

The food was fantastic but our waitress was very unattractive and left us alone for long periods of time even though we had been finishing our drinks. They were out of the first two wine selections I want wanted but explained they were running thin because they were renovating and offered me a better bottle for that price which was the right thing to do.

The service here was great and the food was pretty typical brunch offerings. I had the chicken and wafffles and my friend had the duck confit hash.

Great brunch place, food was really really good! (Ordered the hash and eggs, and my girlfriend ordered Eggs Benedict). Service was really slow and unorganized.

I made a reservation for brunch. The food tasted good but took an hour to come out and then I had to send it back because it was cold.

No music, very quiet inside, food was just ok. Waiter was nice. But nothing remarkable about brunch here

When I made reservations, I noted my allergies, yet that wasn't addressed whatsoever. So, I said something to the Server and went over my allergies in detail. I asked him about three entrees that I was considering - he came back after speaking with the kitchen and told me the kitchen could make me any of the three and accommodate my allergy. Unfortunately, the dish didn't come as prepared. Of course, I sent it back and requested a Manager. After a lengthy discussion, the kitchen made me up a different side to go with my steak - I was confused on why this wasn't discussed prior. My Hubby was already done with his entrée by the time they fixed it - although the Manager did offer to comp the steak and our drinks, we declined. We had a Gilt City G.C. that we decided to use as we didn't want to come back again.

But, that wasn't everything that was wrong. First, the restaurant was relatively quiet with quite a few servers and assistants on the floor, yet I ordered a red sangria - out came a white wine, not a sangria. Of course, I sent that back and waiting awhile for the correct drink to be made. Also, how does a restaurant run out of Still Bottled Water, yet they didn't have this available (Saturday night). Also, the Server took my drink order, yet never asked my Hubby what he wanted .

Ground Pepper - had to request - wasn't offered when salads were served. The pepper shaker was empty. The server had to get a new one. So, then the Server put pepper on my salad, but again didn't ask my Hubby if he wanted some as well - I had to interject and say something - although our server was new, the service was overall very poor.

When Towne Stove and Spirits first opened and for a few years after, it was a fun place to go. Not anymore - the restaurant is like a ghost town on a Saturday night. My prediction is this restaurant won't be around much longer - way too many problems.

Do yourself a favor and skip Towne Stove and Spirits.

The food was ok, we had the salmon, calamari and chicken. The cocktails were great! The ambiance and service were perfect for an intimate date night.

Warning No Valet Parking !!!

I don’t know many fine dining restaurant that don’t offer valet parking, but Towne Stove & Spirits is one

PS I asked for the Manager to stop by regarding the lack of valet parking and I was told he was busy.

I won’t be back

Wow. What a night of mistakes. First the servers delivered our starters to the wrong table. When they corrected It, my half dozen oyster starter came with five not six. When dinner came, my dining partner’s plate was so scalding hot he burned himself. The pain was coupled with the plate completely over cooking the salmon. Why would a plate of salmon ever be that hot? Did they microwave it? The server was made aware of this, apologized and nothing more. My dining partner asked for a different less overcooked salmon on a normal plate. It took about 20 minutes to get the replacement, long after I finished my meal. The sever offered no apology for the food. No apology for my associate’s burned finger. Didn’t even offer to comp the salmon or maybe comp us a dessert. One of the most clueless and ridiculous dining experiences I’ve had in forever. I travel for business all the time and to all who do I highly recommend you go next door to Eataly or Capital Grille on the opposite side. Simply horrendous and frankly embarrassing for a business dinner. Never again!

Menu is very limited and wines are expensive. Our service was also very slow. But worst of all, it's a very noisy space with all hard surfaces and large tables with groups celebrating various occasions.

Service was nonexistent. I ordered a drink and they substituted a liquor without even offering. Steak was not well prepared and the bartender was less than hospitable.
