    I ordered raviolio stuffed with mushrooms. The pasta was tough and the mushroom stuffing didn't taste like mushrooms. The service was excellent! The spinach/pear salad had not so ripe pears (I don't like my pears cruchy). Enviorment lovely!!

    Waitress was running around out of breath. Talking to us from far away instead of coming to The table. Multiple things on the menu weren’t available. First time I went & didn’t get a good impression. Food was fine but not something I’d run back for. A 5 year old could have made the salad I got.

    It was the most pleasant dining experience I’ve had in a long time. The food was delicious and the area where we were seated was perfectly relaxing ( outdoors on the balcony). Our server Tommy was great. He and the rest of the staff did a perfect job on what was a very busy day for them. Looking forward to returning soon.

    Overfall experience was good our waitress was excellent her name was Sonya very accommodating and there was a bus boy named John he was very attentive and helpful the only thing I found was the food was not hot enough the food itself the taste and quality was very good it was a very very busy Mother’s Day but other than that I definitely would go again.

    Went on Mother’s Day heard great things about this place, it was not at all what we hoped it would be. First off the manager and waitress were AMAZING. We got to the table , only to notice that there was a dirty table cloth with red sauce stained on the side where I was sitting , not acceptable, they just moved us to another table and apologized . Drinks took about 30 minutes to get to the table , they were busy , we understood that. The food quality on this day however was anything but good. The salad I was served was wilted with old pruney tomatoes . I ordered the lemon chicken piccata it was on their specials menu. The sauce that was on the chicken tasted spoiled like it had been sitting out all day . Not good at all. We sent it back, we talked to the manager they said the chef had been in the kitchen since 6am . I think they were very short on staff which is unfortunate, the waitress was extremely kind considering we had complained a lot . I would however go back on another day To give them another chance, the manager was very kind and apologetic as was the waitress .

    Appetizers were cold beef wellington was unappetizing and way over cooked and the fillet was bland. We did t have enough menus for the table servers were over extended (not their fault)They might have had an off day but I didn't see any value for the money

    The good was very good but slow coming out if the kitchen. We also had to initially wait a while for our first round of drinks. Overall, Tumblesalts has a charming and unique ambience, with a large menu of delicious foods. There is something for everyone.

    What a cute place to eat. My husband and I ate there on Easter, which was buffet style. The food was good. I’d like to try the food when it isn’t buffet style to compare the food both ways. Definitely worth visiting again.

    Food was excellent, however the the service was not good. Our server just did not seem to care about her tables. She barely came over to see if we needed anything, never refilled my water, just plain inattentive.

    Our reservation was for 4pm Sunday. This was our first time there. The hostess and manager bantered back and forth to see who would seat us. The manager decided he would and asked us to follow him. He changed his mind and asked us to wait at the door so he could see if he had a table. (There were four cars in the lot!!). He came back and brought us into a cozy,little room. It was empty except for two ladies sitting by the window. He sat us at a small table right next to the other two ladies. The room was empty!!! My chair and one of their chairs were practically touching. The manager left the room. Shortly after the two ladies asked to move. It was very uncomfortable. Being the first time there, it was not a pleasant experience. The food was okay but nothing outstanding. Once the ladies left, we were alone until we were ready to leave. Then a party of three was brought in. I’m not sure we’ll be back.

    Friday the 21st four of us came to dinner. We were not informed it was restaurant week, given a flyer advertising it but no menu just the main one. Our waiter was very polite and courteous but obviously undertrained. We had to ask for bread and butter plates and he changed the offerings several times telling us first what was available and then coming back to say the item was not available. When the meal was delivered the other item showed up. The dinner was so far from the description on the menu that I asked for a menu and to see a manager. I expressed my disappointment, and I was asked if I wanted to send it back to see if the cook could fix it. The food was cold and tasteless. Three of us ordered the same entree and my guests were also unhappy with their meal. The manager kept trying to defend what had been served. I was never offered anything else and eventually I had to ask the manager to take the entree off the bill. I am well aware of staffing issues due to covid but a restaurant of your alleged caliber, should recognize employing staff that is not ready to provide table service. Your kitchen help may be experiencing the same issues, but again it reflects on Tumblesalts.

    We have always enjoyed dining at Tumblesalts prior to the pandemic. But now, the outdoor patio is a safe, comfortable and enjoyable option when you don't want to being exposed indoors. I was very happy that the option was still available in January with the recent surge in cases. I also found it convenient that I could reserve an outdoor table on Open Table. When we arrived our table was ready and the heater was on! Food was delicious and service was friendly and efficient.

    Seated downstairs in the pub as exit was easier. Server and bar tender were very good. Parking lot was not well lighted and difficult to find the main entrance.
