    Very hip. Excellent cocktails and food. Concerned about the parking lot valet who wanted to take my car keys but didn’t have a ticket to give me. Told me they blew away in the rain! I obviously didn’t give him my keys. Forgot to ask about it when I got into the restaurant.

    The cheese platter is three times smaller than a year ago but much more expensive than a year ago we were celebrating birthday and I asked upon booking to have a small desert/cake and a candle with usual “Happy Birthday” song. Never happened! On top of regular bill they wanted to charge “non-cash payment fee”- we caught it and asked to remove. Beware. They only care how to rip people off. Less food, higher prices and when bill arrives, watch out for being ripped off.

    Violette's CellarResponded on May 24, 2022

    Vlak, We were sorry to hear that you felt our charcuterie platter wasn't as robust as you remember from your last visit. Yikes - that's not the impression we want to leave and I am so sorry that we didn't bring a cake with a candle for the birthday. That is not our usual level of service at all. With regards to the non cash payment fee, unfortunately and regretfully, we do need to pass along the credit card fee that the company charges, but we do have signage to indicate this. Susan

    I got a lobster eggs Benedict, first off my eggs were not poached, or on the bread in the description it was on a piece of French toast. Food was absolutely nasty, we ordered dessert supposed to come warm and was cold.

    Violette's CellarResponded on May 24, 2022

    Jennifer, I was so sorry to hear that the lobster eggs benedict was not to your liking and that you were disappointed with your meal. I sounds like their may have been a mix-up with dessert as well. This is not our usual standard - our apologies . Susan

    The pros: our server was amazing. The food was good (although not great…. But good). The cons: wine is WAY overpriced. I have no issues spending on wine and will do so for a nice one. But their wine list has really low level wines at higher prices then you should EVER pay. I’m talking a $9.00 bottle 19crimes for $45. This is a wine that shouldn’t be on any wine list, let alone for $45. We normally order about 3 bottles when I go with this particular group but we ordered one and that was it. Very disappointing there. For that reason alone I probably won’t go back unless the wine list got better thought out.

    Violette's CellarResponded on May 24, 2022

    Jana, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us . I'm so glad that you appreciated our attentive, friendly service and was happy you thought our food was good as well. I understand your feedback about the wine - we do have a comprehensive with wines at most price points. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy the selection. We do have a monthly five course wine paired dinner, Wine Academy, that you may enjoy -please check our website for more info. Thank you again, Susan

    Small space crammed with lots of people. Service could have been way better. Had to ask waiter for things multiple times. Food was nothing that I would run back to eat again. very overpriced for tiny portions. iced coconut late was delicious. Beautiful interior though. Would have visited again if the food was better.

    Great service, food was incredible, decor is unique and glamorous. Just wish we weren’t seated by bathrooms which made for noisy interruptions (air hand dryer and flushing) throughout our otherwise amazing meal. The rest of the restaurant was empty. I would have asked for another table but hubby didn’t want me to ask.

    We tried the artichoke & spinach bread pudding, the chicken pot pie empanada, the gnocchi cacio pepe,and the lobster risotto. All were delicious. My only comment would be that although the gnocchi were light, the cream sauce they were smothered in was heavy. Cacio e pepe traditionally is not in a cream sauce. I prefer it in the traditional form.

    We went for a late lunch & were the only ones there so the place was quiet. Nice ambiance & good service. We had prosciutto & fig Flatbread along with Violette's Meatballs (which were fantastic). Keep in mind they do charge a convenience fee for credit card transactions. Look forward to dining again soon.

    This is such a pretty place to dine. The eclectic menu has something for everyone. I was there on a Tuesday night for their Lobster specials. I had 2 HUGE, delicious, broiled lobster tails. 2 of my friends had the pork chops and said they too were delicious. My husband went with the short rib and thought the sauce on it was a little too heavy for his liking ( this will not deter him from coming back). My friends enjoyed the house Cabernet and I had an excellent Mezcal Margarita (my favorite). Service was ok considering there seemed to be only 2 waitresses. The dining room was not full, but looked busy for a Tuesday night. I’m already looking forward to going back!

    Wife and I made reservations for Valentines Day after a few people had suggested this place. The food was excellent, the tropical drink we had came with a flame and was great, a little dangerous because I could have easily had 4-5, but was the one driving home. We had ordered a few small plate/appetizers and did not disappoint. The chicken pot pie empanadas brought us back to our childhood, an awesome homemade chicken pot pie. The Lobster flatbread was also delicious as well as the filet mignon satay. For the main course my wife had the shrimp and lobster risotto, amazing. The risotto was perfectly cooked. I had the beef short rib which melted as I touched it with the fork. To finish we split the crème brûlée, super soft and not too rich, perfect. We will definitely be back.
