    Server apologized just a few times too many for being "the only one working today" and seemed harried. Never checked on us, never refilled waters. My food was disappointing and too greasy. Place was more of a dive than I expected.

    After twenty years in Cville, visited Rapture for the first time for lunch with a friend. The menu is quite interesting and it was hard to decide from so many great options. However I decided on the Southwest steak salad and it did not disappoint! The food was great and the wait staff friendly and engaging. Will definitely go back.

    Prompt welcoming, immediate seating, followed by great wait service. Mixed drinks were done very well and the food was both hot and delicious. My wife had the shrimp and grits while I had the meatloaf. Both excellent. The cherry cheesecake was to die for. Highly recommend.

    The food quality was outstanding. The variety of the southern style cuisine was pleasantly surprising. The service was prompt, but I wish our server had a little more personality. I also felt like I was guilted into using a compostable to-go food container, which I don't mind using, but the way the "option" of food container presented to me was unusual.

    This is a fine place to grab a casual bite. I ordered a burger that was cooked correctly but tasted like it was cooked on a grill in need of cleaning. The tots were awesome. My Coke was flat. The service was friendly enough.

    Everything was great. Good relaxed atmosphere with excellent brunch. Best Chesapeake crab eggs benedict and very attentive staff. Look forward to coming back next time we are in Charlottesville.
