    I took my sister and mom to celebrate my sister's birthday. All of our meals were very good and hot. The burgers were fantastic, and my Korean mac and cheese wrap was so good, but somewhat spicy. I enjoyed the chicken and waffle a few days before this visit, and would totally recommend that. The service was great and everyone was so friendly.

    Open Table reservation helped. Good & unique food with healthy choices that is missing from the local marketplace. Service continues to be extremely slow - plan on being there awhile.

    Great place; interesting, quirky. Looks like someone’s house, and the indoor lighting is way too bright. But…great menu, great service, outstanding bar choices. We loved it!

    The food was great. Unfortunately for us there was a group of about 20 kids having lunch. The atmosphere was loud and chaotic. The service ground to a halt.The whole situation was very undesirable. Not sure we will return.

    The FourNineResponded on August 19, 2022Thank you for the heads up. We have 39 seats in the restaurant so if a group of 20 kids came in that is to be expected. Thank you for the response, and we will continue to work to get better.

    The food was amazingly great- the length of time we waited was not. Full house and one server. Slow kitchen but all in all the food was worth the wait!! Plan to wait and enjoy your evening

    The FourNineResponded on August 19, 2022Thank you for the kind words. We will continue to focus on our ticket times in our small kitchen.

    Food service is slow, seems like only one waitress for whole room. Food is delicious. We were a bit disappointed in our cocktails. The picture showed icing and sprinkles etc on the martini glass. But ours came without. And instead of a sugar cookie flavor it tasted like a mudslide. Still tasted good, but disappointed in paying 10$ for them. Will come back for food. Would love to see Trulys in the fridge! 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Our Birthday party loved the food and the server was excellent as was the chef. We loved the eclectic selection of items. If I was to make a reccomendation, I would suggest no plastic utensils and especially I like my wine in a glass. I am sure this is something the manager or owners need to address. As for the service and chef--beyond excellent!!

    I had the Charcuterie Pretzel, and it was terrific. My friend had the Caprese Salad with chicken and said it was excellent. It was not crowded when we were there, but my friend and I had to change tables to be able to hear each other better. I would highly recommend it.

    Great food, tasty cocktails, wonderful service!!!! Building is a tad small but they are making it work and I’m sure they will grow to the point where they’ll need larger facilities to accommodate increased business. We’ll become frequent customers of THE FOURNINE! Fun place!
