    My best friend and I went here to celebrate our birthday. They decorated the table for us. In addition, our server was very attentive. We met the chef and the owner came by our table to tell us HBD. This place is so welcoming and the food is AMAZING!!

    It was my wife’s bday and they decorated the table with bday hats, glasses and other decorations. We split an appetizer, salad, entree and bottle of wine. Everything was great. Made the night very special for us.

    The food was phenomenal. The portions on the appetizers and the salad wasn’t what I would’ve preferred, but the quality made up for that I suppose. The service from our waitress was INCREDIBLE! The outside dining was perfectly set for the mood as well. The downside… There were some guests who came outside to smoke while my wife and I were trying to enjoy our meal and each other’s company. The smell was awful and they were smoking one after another. I’m not sure they weren’t lighting a cigarette with another cigarette even! Other than that little hang up, it was everything we needed it to be!

    Food was excellent, as was our server, Abby. We were seated in the bar area, so it was a bit loud, and difficult to hold a conversation, but we still had an enjoyable time. Would definitely go back!

    The food was cooked perfectly - had petite filet and short rib - potatoes and veggies were nice complement and soups to start were yummy. speciality cocktails were great - first time ever to say please dont overfill the glass. Our server, Taylor, was very pleasant, just right amount of attentive. our table felt tight close to the kitchen but it wasnt overcrowded and worked out fine. Maybe when weather cools off we will try outside.

    Friday night dinner with friends. 5:45 reservations- not crowed at all. Ordered cocktails, salads and soup. Took a while to get dinner after we finished salad. Great waiter in Jonathan. Attentive and got our order correct. Out of short ribs, always a favorite but had the sea bass. Delicious as usual. Wish the restaurant would offer specials like you used to do. Get tired of the same menu sometimes so trying something new is always fun. Drinks were good and dessert (bread pudding) were enjoyable.

    We both had the Prime Benedict and it was delicious. That being said, it was $44 a plate and each plate only had one poached egg. Two slices of sourdough, one small filet, which was big enough to cut and make two portions, but only one egg. For $44, they could give you a second egg.

    Always a lovely place with great leadership and a wonderful menu. Went for Saturday brunch. Food was very good. Didn't give it a 5-star because they were out of the first thing we ordered and the coffee was not hot - not only the first time but refills, too. Service was very good. Didn't give it a 5-star because there were obviously some new folks who weren't operating smoothly yet. We love it and are so glad to have it in our area!

    We brought out of state visitors to W456 to dine and it was exceptional! Our waiter, Joseph, was outstanding! The staff team work for rolls, butter and water was better than any restaurant back in Frisco. The food was delicious and the sauces and presentations were incredible. All five of us loved our cocktails, dinner and the beautiful ambiance. Adding to the evening Thomas, the manager/owner made sure to visit and engage in conversations with everyone.

    This was our first time to have brunch at W-456 since they changed it to buffet style only. The food was amazing! They had everything you could imagine, even salad and dessert. We will continue to enjoy this place every chance we get. If you have not tried brunch at this place you are missing out!

    Definitely a hidden Gem for the area. We have tried almost every restaurant from Mabank/Gun Barrel to Athens and practically All have been huge disappointments. W456 unlike All the other restaurants in the area delivered in All categories W456 was spotless clean which is virtually impossible to find locally, Food was Very good, we tried every appetizer on the menu and All were exceptional. Timing of appetizers and dinner entrees were spot on. Large filet Mignon was cooked perfectly as were the shrimp and grits. Desserts are worth holding out for. Staff was friendly and engaging The interior is eccentric but fits. It was a great experience, highly recommend and will be back.

    I couldn’t decide if I was eating at place decorated by my 85 year old great aunt or a decorator without a budget or good taste.… but it was nice to have a Sunday buffet at the lake. Food was decent but over priced for the quality and service. The best thing about 456 is that they do have any competition in the area except for quick or casual service restaurants.
