Absolutely superb. Great food, great service, great adherence to social distancing and cleanliness requirements.
Server was great. Black male (didn’t get his name). Food was alright and the cost was much higher than I’d expected
By some reason our reservation was cancelled a couple of minutes before we arrived. Beside that, our experience was great!
The cauliflower salad is amazing!
The food, service and noise level was excellent!
Presentation of the food was wonderful! The place lived up to his name, everything was Unconventional in great way.
The dining experience and service was great in spite of the pandemic. The food was delicious. I’m looking forward to going back again soon.
Staff was so nice to my dogs. Thank you!!
LOVED Unconventional Diner! The waiters were so accomodating and checked on us often. The food was beautiful and so good - I had the french toast and side of fries (highly recommend)!
Server was great!
Best Mezze ever, the Pappardelle French Dip was a big step above great Stroganoff and the Baked Brie appetizer was the most incredible ever
Great food and really prepared for serving during the pandemic.
Great food and service. The cheeseburger was superb
The best Shrimp & Grits I've ever had. The host was very stressed and not particularly friendly. Our waitress Ashley was very nice. We sat outside and it was fine.
Great Covid protocols and outdoor dining was comfortably in the shade during AM. Food was excellent. Our Server, Ashley, was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back.
Tasty twists on some traditional and not so traditional brunch items. We would go back !
The atmosphere was great. The food was amazing. The service was impeccable.
The food was truly unconventional, I seen pleasant of interesting dishes exit the kitchen. Only thing I would say I didn’t approve of is my dirty Caesar salad which had iceberg as it base green. However the squid ink croutons, what can I say unconventional and delicious. I would definitely go again.
It was cute inside! They have plexy glass around the tables to ensure the safety measures. 11/10
Food and service was awesome! I went for brunch and everything was great!!
Very attentive service. Everyone was was warm and make sure I had everything I needed. My water glass was always refilled. The food was fine. The crab hushpuppies were too dense and not crisp enough. The chicken parm was fine. The spaghetti on the side needed something. It was too bland.
Fun and delicious food. Service was very good and friendly, too.
My waiter was Kyle. He was awesome! He was very cool to talk to and was super nice. The food was outstanding. I definitely recommend the brussel sprouts; either the brunch or dinner option. Definitely coming back here again!
Great place great food and great service
The service was slightly slow, but the food was amazing and the ambiance was great! I would highly recommend!
UD is doing a fantastic job keeping everything really clean and safe feeling with COVID. The food was as well done and creative as usual! Will definitely be back.
You must try the Lebanese Fried Rice and the Brussel Sprout Eggs!
We went to this restaurant with a few friends and the staff were very courteous and kept their eye on our needs throughout the entire meal. The food was well made and tasted good as well. I’d recommend this restaurant as a chill night out kinda place with friends.
Incredible food! Cute atmosphere accommodated outside seating. Service was attentive. Cocktails were original and delicious. We came for restaurant week but this will easily become a new favorite!
I dont know if the cook was off but the food wasnt great. I ordered the crab hush puppies and they were cold in the middle. I also got the chessburger and there was so much black pepper on the meat I could barely finish it. I couldnt taste anything but pepper. the dessert was the only upside
We had a fabulous experience Sunday night and all had the restaurant week menu. We went for the chicken parm and it did not disappoint. What a great selection of dishes for restaurant week too! Excellent service, food AND cocktails to be had at Unconventional Diner. And comfortable outdoor seating and all Covid rules being followed.
Our first time dining out since the pandemic hit and we felt extremely safe here. We opted for outside seating for personal comfort reasons. Not only were many safety measures taken but the level of service remained top notch. James and Dino really made sure were taken care of and support staff did a great job as well. Thank you for making it a special night and for putting us at ease.
Brunch was so delicious. Server was so great and other staff did a great job! I love the new plexiglass panels between the tables... I hope they leave them up always!
To me, Restaurant Week is about trying new places and even though I'd been to Unconventional Diner right before the pandemic broke out, all of the mayhem deleted it from my memory. So my family and I cautiously ventured and were happy to see the measures UD has taken to protect its staff and guests (including plastic partitions, which allowed me to actually relax and enjoy the experience). The double cheeseburger is a national treasure and the crab hush puppies are little balls of joy on a plate. Also, the chocolate cake is delightful. Highly recommend.
One of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a very long time.
Our meal inside was terrific, service was great and social distancing measures were clearly in place. We felt very safe and also had a really enjoyable dinner. The dining room noise levels were well below pre-COVID, and honestly we prefer the quieter experience.
Everything on this menue is good. Literally.
