    We made our reservations through Olen Table - we were confirmed for 7 pm on Sunday and we got there and it was closed - closes at 3 on Sundays - It used to be open until 8. Not sure where the problems lies Wine Dine or Open Table but Open hours need to be updated. We have always gotten great food and great service.

    The food was good (not great) but way too expensive. The service was very good. The restaurant was VERY loud, could not have a normal conversation. Probably will not go back.

    The charcuterie board is excellent. The service was very good with very sweet energetic employees. Otherwise it was just okay. Every time I'm in there it feels very disorganized. For example we show up a few minutes late for our reservation. They had our reservation and held it, however we still had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The party ahead of us did as well. Then we had one server then another and no one introduced themselves and no one really said they were taking care of us. The person who ended up staying with us was nice and made good recommendations. We were sitting in the middle of the dining area so it just felt a bit distracting all night. Overall it was fine, but not the best dining experience and probably started out oddly and continued that way. The food is great!!! We'll go again. I would love if they would work on their organization and flow.

    Osso Bucco was excellent, Lobster Roll excellent although the waitress quoted $32 and the price was $36. The dessert was very disappointing, the pastry crust was so hard we could not break it with a knife, could have used a jackhammer. Noise level, very high, difficult to hold a conversation.

    Great date night experience. The service was great. Our waitress brought us a few samples of wine to try before deciding on a bottle which was super appreciated because the wine we were going to get, we ended up not liking when we sampled it. Food was fantastic. We both had the butcher cut which was the hangar steak with smoked mushrooms and truffle mashed potatoes - we really, really enjoyed that. Creme brulee for dessert was awesome. Overall, great experience!!

    First time we’ve eaten there, really enjoyed the experience. Our server was very personable, had good recommendations for what we should order. Food overall was very good, although $32 for the lobstah roll was a little over the top especially since the lobster tasted like it had been frozen. Lesson learned: ask before I order anything that’s ‘market price!’ We’ll definitely go back since they have lots of options not available on most Chattanooga menus.

    Best service I’ve experienced in a LONG time. It is obvious that ownership/management emphasizes superior service as well as food. This is a rare thing at even the higher end restaurants these days where staff tends to treat you as a necessary inconvenience. We were promptly and cheerfully greeted by the hostess and constantly attended to by our server and other wait staff. Server was attentive and patient to answer several questions we had about the menu. Wish we had caught her name…

    The music was very loud for a Sunday brunch and I always find it frustrating that servers add a gratuity to the ticket when there is a party of 6 or more (We had a party of 6). I feel like the service is subpar when they know that a 20% tip is guaranteed. Our server wasn’t attentive; never asked us if we wanted refills, gave us the wrong drinks.. I was disappointed in the service today, especially since we frequent this establishment.

    Ordered turkey avacado bacon sandwich. It arrived, missing the avacado. Asked for it and received a plate with a few small slices. Two slices bacon. The sandwich looked messy and was underwhelming.
