    Upon arriving received a very friendly welcoming greeting. Beautiful restaurant and spotless. Music played at a pleasant noise level. Our server , Alexander was terrific. I never had to ask for a refill. We never order appetizers as we are really not big eaters but reviews said not to pass up the cheddar biscuits. Served warm they did not disappoint. My entree was a roasted chicken breast which had a.bit of a light delicious sauce. Juicy and tender. It was served with yummy mashed potatoes. Also carrots and broccolini. The carrots were cooked but sort of chard but were in small enough pieces. The broccolini was crisp the way I like. However I only had a butter knife and was not able to cut it. A sharp knife was needed. Nevertheless, I did manage to get it in my mouth. Hadn’t had much to eat today so I ate every morsel. Usually don’t get desert but chocolate torte sounded good . Had a rough day so decided to splurge. it hit the spot especially the raspberry sauce and filling. The honeycomb on top was beautiful and gave a nice crunch but had a bitter taste. My husband ordered the cheeseburger and fries and didn’t care for either - barely ate it. Burger had way to much dijonaisse and fries had some coating he didn’t like. I would definitely go back.

    This was a great experience. Great bar and drink specials. Our waitress was helpful and attentive. It is not inexpensive. I spent $70 for 2 drinks 1 appetizer 2 entree's and 1 dessert. Normal food pricing for student chefs. I would go there again.

    Great experience for lunch. I am a student that visited during a long break. Zach was an excellent server (I am a server at a different restaurant myself,) the fish and chips was the best I have had off of the east coast, and the pomegranate mojito was fantastic. You can tell these students and educators care about the dining experience.

    We visited the first time and ate here for lunch on Valentine’s Day. While it seems like other reviews I’ve seen say it’s a good place for a business lunch/dinner, I think it had tremendous value as a date meal. The staff were all really kind and the menu is what you could easily find elsewhere for double the price. The atmosphere was nice and it seems more dressy casual than strictly casual or fine dining. I like that you won’t necessarily feel over or underdressed. The portions were a good size for cost and everything we got was tasty. They had plenty of vegetarian options for me. Will note as a heads up for other diners that alcohol is not served at lunch. Overall this was an unexpected find and I expect we’ll visit again!

    Nice place to eat. Not many people,so lots of room between parties. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was good. My poached apple salad with candied pecans was one of the best salads I've had. The other diners in our party had the roasted chicken (excellent), the margarita flatbread (very good), and the carrot ravioli (different). Scallop appetizers were perfect. Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely go back and will recommend Degrees to friends.

    We like to thank Degrees Restaurant for the wonderful food and excellent service last evening. A ready smile by the Host and the friendly Bartender who shared cocktail recipes started our enjoyable experience. Once seated our evening continued with thoughtfully presented delicious food that made the experience even better than expected. We are BIG fans!

    I can't describe how wonderful this restaurant is effectively without it sounding exaggerated. This place is THAT good. Im in a tough spot of recommending it enough so that others can share this incredible experience while slightly hoping it doesn't get too much busier so that I can continue to dine here without getting put on a wait list. In all seriousness, please go support this amazing establishment and see for yourself!

    We went to Degrees for our weekly date night. Parking is free close and simple. Our food was spectacular. We shared a scallop appetizer that was five star quality and then both had individual meals. The pear salad is fantastic and they had a great vegetarian ravioli that was fantastic. The menu was small which was refreshing. You can watch the food prep going on through a big glass wall. Highly recommend this not well known lunch and dinner spot.
