    We had friends visiting from out of town and decided to try Wren for the first time. We have always heard such good things about Wren and we had an excellent first experience. The shrimp and grits were the best I’ve ever had and my husband enjoyed his crispy flounder. The cocktails, the delicious desserts, the service - everything was perfect.

    We had reservations at 7 & were promptly seated. After looking over the menu, we were about to order the meatloaf dish & were told they were sold out. So, I ordered the salmon special & my husband ordered the sirloin special (well done). My husband had to send his steak back because it was too tuff to eat, so he ordered a hamburger steak which was better. My salmon was very sweet … tasted like candy corn. I didn’t send it back, just ate around the sweet parts. Just like most places these day s they were very busy & seemed to be understaffed.

    I didn't get the name of our waitress, but I really appreciate her stopping to get our orders in quickly when she had a larger table seated at the same time as us. We were on a 1hr business lunch break and made reservations next to a bridal party. Everything was great! AND LOVE the online reservation option!

    Firstly no one wants to frequent a place that serves lousy food. No worries here - all items from shared plates, entrees and dessert were creatively exquisite! Service couldn't have been friendlier and responsive to boot! Don't walk - RUN to the Wren as you won't be disappointed!

    Whenever we arrived at Wren our table was ready. Holly, our waitress, came over immediately to greet us and had my wife's favorite ice tea without asking. She gave us a few minutes to review the menu, then continued to take our order. Our food was served in a reasonable time and it was exactly what we ordered. Holly made sure the food was prepared correctly and to our satisfaction. We enjoyed our meal in a quiet atmosphere. We were very pleased with our total experience at Wren as it was my wife's birthday. We would recommend Wren and suggest you ask for Holly as your server. Thanks.

    We love the mahi special at Wren I will continue to return. On this trip, however we sat near the bar and the line was just filthy and unchecked. It may be wise to train your bar staff on how to politely remind patrons that they are in a public setting and that the incessant use of an F bomb is not music to everyone’s ears. There is a respectful way to deal with situations like this.

    Wren is a great local bistro for business lunches, Ladies Social Hour, & even a date night for 2. The Toasted Pecan Cranberry Chicken salad is my favorite and I order it more than any other item! However, whenever I’m in the mood for something different, I’ll order the Smash Burger…Very Delicious Too! Plus, I love the strawberry wine spritzer that Ben the Bartender muddles together for me. Cool & Refreshing!

    Wren was highly recommended by a local friend. We found the service unimpressive (slow and inattentive - and the restaurant was not terribly crowded). Food was fine. No specific complaints but nothing outstanding. I might try it again, but would probably try somewhere else first.
