They lost our order. We were in no hurry and they apologized, so that was ok, but it took them a while to acknowledge it.

The food was salty and fairly bland, even though the ingredients sounded interesting. The server checked in with us as the food was being served, by never returned to see if everything was okay.

We had noted in our reservation that this was a birthday celebration and there was no acknowledgement of that.

The desserts were uninspired. We went down the block and had lovely desserts at Edwards.

Took my parents and fiance here. I believe the phrase "top 10 dining experience" was thrown around. Authentic, creative, and absolutely delectable food from appetizer to dessert. Buzzing yet comfortable atmosphere. Great service. Already planning my return!

Wow. First of all, I love the building. The exposed brick, the windows, the lightening and the feel are just spectacular. The food is the main attraction, however, with the cocktail/bar a close second. The food we ate was a dream. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful, also friendly. We learned a lot about anything about which we had questions. We felt very lucky to be able to experience dining the way we did.

We had the most fabulous dinner that we can remember on Thursday, August 16, 2018. My husband and I live in New York City and are extensively traveled so we are no strangers to great cuisine. But our dinner at Tullibee that evening (to celebrate my birthday) was one of the best of our lives. Fresh meats, herbs, inventive flavorful sauces, sides (ALL of them) that are to die for and scrumptious desserts. We were also honored that the chef took time to come to our table to accept our congratulations and thanks.

The only thing that was as good if not better than the food was our waiter, Phil. He was informative, fun, warm, and engaging. He set a lovely mood for our table right up front. We were especially taken with the fact that Phil knew so many of the local farms (and farmers) sourced in the restaurant. Not only could he describe the dishes in great detail, but he could tell us from personal experience about the origins of these lovely ingredients.

I cannot recommend this restaurant, its chef and its waitstaff (specifically Phil!) enough. Thank you! Thank you!

We were excited to return to Tullibee for breakfast. Sadly, our hopes for a repeat experience were dashed with the first cup of coffee which was watery and flavorless. We ordered the hash and eggs Benedict to split btw the two of us. The hash was respectable. The Benedict however was essentially a hard boiled egg atop toast and smoked turkey. The promise of having a runny yolk to blot our toast in was not delivered. We alerted the waiter of the sub par execution and his response was one of puzzlement rather then one of problem solving. When the bill was delivered they offered to comp our watercoffee. This place unfortunately seems to have adopted a bit of a mutton dressed as lamb appeal. Very disappointing.

Food was beautifully presented and tasty. I like duck a bit more crispy, however my husband's scallops were perfect as well as the beet salad...enough to share. Server excellent. I prefer more separation when dining and this is possible if you are a foursome but not two if it's busy. Pricey, although we expected it and it was a special occasion. Overall an enjoyable meal and would return.

I was so disappointed in this place. We had heard so many good things but that was before the new chef. Great bar to go to but not for food at all. Fatty meats, etc. It was also quite pricey which I do not mind if i am getting good food but not here. Would not go back.

Plates were expensive for what we got. The pork was so-so. $100+ for my 11 year old son and I seemed way too much. Did not get any alcohol.

This was a special restaurant week menu, but it was absolutely fantastic. We were stressed because all restaurants were busy around us, but they welcomed us and were very accommodating. Took a possibly bad evening and make it wonderful! They got super busy later but still got the same care from our waitress. Can't wait to go back for their full menu!!!

Excellent service and food. Neat space as well. My only quibble is that it was smoky, as if the ventilation system wasn't keeping up in the kitchen. With the sunlight we could see smoke moving around us, and the smoke smell was non-trivial.

SO cold inside the restaurant and pretty noisy to the point where a conversation across the table was difficult. Food was okay, nothing to write home about. I will say the dessert was very delicious. I would not come back for the food, but the dessert I would!

Overall - definitely pricier than what it was worth.

I love the Hewing Hotel and have had better experiences at Tullibee before. I like the ambiance and vibe of the restaurant space, but the food was just ok. Unfortunately, there was a limited fixed menu due to restaurant week. I thought the food was just ok. The waiter was very positive and polite, but fished for compliments to the chef, which was unusual and awkward! Embarrassing, really. It was my husband and adult daughter’s first time and I don’t think they will be in any hurry to return.

In the past year Tullibee has been consistently great, but last night's dinner was over the top incredible. Every dish we sampled (and we tried many) was artistically presented and tasted incredible. Our server was fun, knowledgeable about all the dishes, and super helpful. The beautiful cozy bright open atmosphere is always a WOW with our guests too.

Having seen other reviews, I was a little worried the restaurant would be beautifully decorated but just 'ok' food... but it was the opposite! The pictures online of the space contain a coziness that isn't present in person, although (besides the PVC pipes all over the ceiling) it was still very nice in there and everything felt solid and clean. The food however, was fabulous, especially the sides and the entrees. Their menu apparently changes almost constantly, but everything my group of 4 had was truly wonderful -- and justified the (high) price. This is definitely on my list of places to take guests in the future.

Wonderful table and the food was very good. Our waitresses was good but painful not letting my wife order an appetizer from the bar menu. Telling her if you want a bar appetizer go sit in the bar. It was rude and condescending. She eats very plain and the menu is foodie. Even advised her they sell Nachos at the stadium. Needless to say we won’t be back
