    Great Maple has consistently great food and service; they are a neighborhood gem. Last night we had the salmon, prime rib and risotto with prawns (a special) for our main courses, calamari and portobello fries for starters and for dessert we had the pie of the month which for December is a Snickerdoodle Custard with a Cinnamon sugar crusted custard filling in a butter pie crust. …and the entire meal was fabulous!

    Food was excellent although a bit pricey. The only complaint was that there are only 5 parking spaces and it was next to impossible finding street parking for Saturday brunch. Our friend who was supposed to meet us gave up and went home.

    Was really excited for the place but the food was actually pretty mid. Our server was kind but some of the other customers gave us dirty looks, which isn’t the restaurants fault but kinda ruined the experience for us as well

    I love Great Maple. The food is always very good. The service is usually great but for some reason our server on this day was moderate. She came by once after we received our food. Usually they will tell us if they go on a break, but we never saw her again. Then the next server seemed to be annoyed when we asked for anything. Very unusual day for them.

    The food is definitely a departure from basic diner fare. The bacon maple doughnut is very tasty and a good treat for the kids. We had a chilaquiles entree , a pork belly polenta meal, and some basic kids meals with pancakes and fruit. Other than the doughnut which was super good, the entrees were just ok. Nothing mind blowing. Chilaquiles were crunchy (which most places mess up). However, not as much flavor as you would think because the presentation looks so good. Our waitress was awesome. Very polite and attentive. Appreciate good service. I would go there again, but would try other menu items.

    Our server Jazmin was top notch with a great personality and fun. The popovers were cold and when asked to bring hot fresh ones she did and the butter was incredible. Next time I would only sit outside due to noise level in inside but the inside is cute. Great FOOD .. brisket and eggs fantastic and apple pancakes were perfect. Potatoes are amazing . I did not order the French toast logs but I wanted to run up to the table next to me and grab theirs off their plate and run it looked so good. Next time I am getting those.

    Breakfast food was good but the ribeye sandwich was extremely disappointing and the aujus lacked flavor. Service was okay, had to keep reminding the sever for confinements, creamer, more coffee…etc.

    Great for brunch and surprisingly very good for dinner also! They do seem a little shorter staffed in the evening which meant slight delays in service, but definitely not terrible and everyone was very friendly. Staff works together great to keep the flow going. Loved the Pear Martini, loved the calamari with olives, shared a Caesar Salad, and the Duck entree with the polenta. The goat cheese in the risotto really elevated the flavor and loved the greens it came with, along with the fruity glaze on the duck. Would def recommend.

    The food while delicious was a bit too pricey for what it was. It was not what I would consider a “fancy” dinner and put bill was over $100 for two of us. I know prices in general have gone up for everything but I don’t remember spending that much for just a regular dinner

    The food was delicious, and I highly recommend the Portabella Fries. The server was professional and kept our coffee cups full. Many times we have tried a restaurant one time and the second visit just wasn’t as good for some reason. That was not the case here. Just leave time beforehand to find a parking spot because it is tight. We look forward to the next visit!

    Pretty loud inside, so I wouldn’t bring grandparents or others with hearing difficulties but ok to deal with for me and my friend. Food was really good. Had the polenta corn cake and stuffed squash blossom breakfast dish which was amazing. Are it all even though I was full because I just wanted to keep eating it. Bacon cooked to perfection and they don’t skimp on the order (4 generous sized slices).

    Our server Katy was great and didn’t hover, giving us enough time to catch up but let us order and get our food too. The food was great and the portion sizes were huge so even though they are pricey it is a great value.
