We had a 6:30 reservation but due to delays in getting seated and served and in the preparation of our meals, our food didn’t arrive until 7:45. The restaurant was busy and I understand that restaurants are struggling with staffing but even so this seemed unreasonable.

When the food finally came out it was hot and pretty good

Absolutely top notch. The food was delicious And the atmosphere was beautiful. We sat on a small back patio, there was small bubbling fountain, beautiful greenery. The vibe was wonderful, I could have stayed there all night. Highly recommended!!

We sat outdoors, it was nice. The musician was very engaging, quite entertaining. Calamari appetizer was excellent. My pizza was good, as was my wife’s burger.

My only gripe was the rum-and-diets we ordered, both were quite watered down; after a repeat on the refills, we both switched to beer.

This restaurant was oddly laid out. You enter to check in and then you brought
through one room and then back outside and then up to another level back inside.
Service was slow and average at best.
Food was average at best.
I don't think we will return for another visit.

We walked in and it was so romantic, we got served popcorn instead of bread. As soon as they placed the popcorn I was so embarrassed. We were at a nice restaurant and they served you popcorn to eat as if we were at a bar or tavern. The appetizer, tumble calamari was the best food we ordered that night. I had baked stuffed haddock that was okay, nothing special. My boyfriend had a steak dish that had three 3oz portions of steak. He couldn’t even eat his steak it was so chewy and you could tell it was a lower grade steak. I had also ordered a side Caesar salad, the dressing completely ruined it for me along with the pizza mozzarella they garnished it with. I asked for a side of garlic bread, they served it to me burnt. I could tell they tried with the presentation but the quality of our meals were lacking. Did we complain? No. It was our anniversary and I didn’t want to make a stink about it even though I would have normally said something. I always told myself when I go out to eat, I want to enjoy myself. Tonight I enjoyed my company and the servers kindness but the food was horrible. Unfortunately we would only come back for the calamari.

This was our fifth time going and we have loved it every time. The food has been consistent and delicious each time. The service has always been impeccable. The owner is always there to greet us when we arrive. Our server Sonya has always provided excellent service and stays on top of everything. One of my favorite parts is the ambiance. They have several different rooms and we love each one. The Carousel room is probably my favorite with the vintage chandeliers and light fixtures and the fireplace. We can’t recommend Tumblesalt’s enough!!

We were a big loud group of people. Which we felt bad because it was so quiet in their. The service was amazing. We asked for a drink that they didn’t know of and the bartender made it phenomenally. We got the calamari as an appetizer and it was delicious. Their rice was also amazing. I usually never compliment so much on a side but that was one of the best types of rice I’ve had. Overall it was great and I would definitely go back. We were all pleased.

Great! I found this new restaurant experience through OpenTable app. Finding the entrance was a little tricky but once inside the staff was very friendly and helpful, facility was clean and well lit with multiple building (very interesting) with several outdoor spaces. We are looking forward to our next visit.
