    I recently dined at the Board Room and I must say, it was a fantastic experience. The ambiance of the restaurant was cozy and inviting, perfect for a night out with friends or a special date. The Braised Short Rib dish that I ordered was absolutely outstanding - tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. But what really stood out to me was the friendly and attentive service from the staff. They made sure we had everything we needed and checked in on us throughout the meal. Overall, I highly recommend the Board Room for a wonderful dining experience.

    The food was fantastic- had the Pork Belly Bao Buns which were amazing. Would definitely go again. I feel the service was lacking- never was offered refill on iced tea and water, had to flag someone down to wrap up food and ask for check. Wasn't checked on- the place was not overall busy to the point no one was able to ensure we were serviced. But overall the food was good enough to return and hope for better service.

    First time at The Board Room, but definitely not the last. Split a number of the small plates and each dish was better than the previous one. From the food, to the cordial service to the ambience, I highly recommend The Board Room.

    Had the February Margarita tower which was fantastic. We also had wine a a stout beer. The Tuna tartare was amazing . The Udon noodles with vegetables and a sweet sour chile sauce was delicious. The meal was made more special by the service by Karen K .

    Delicious drink and food options. We love the shareable plates. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has quite the vibe. Service is exceptional. We love Emily! The second time my husband and I went to the restaurant she remembered us and what we ordered. We were blown away. She’s very attentive, friendly, she has the best recommendations and she’s professional, yet so much fun. The board room has become one of our fav date night spots.

    Food was good . I had a couple from my party that arrived after me and the host could not find me in the system and guide them to our table . My friend text me and when I went to greeting her, the host told me to get away from the area because I was blocking the entrance . He was very rude . I had to explain o him that if he would have see me in the system , I would not have to come to the front to get my friends .

    I loved the nice selection of appetizers, cold and hot. The entrees or Large plates was limited certainly the burger meal at $16 was overpriced for the quality. Loved the atmosphere was inviting and the live entertainment was wonderful. Chocolate martinis...yummy. Maybe stick with drinks and starters or charcuterie board.

    Made reservations for 5:30, dinner for 4 on Saturday night. Arrived on time and found the restaurant to be scarcely occupied by patrons. We were seated and served drinks/dinner in a timely manner. All was very good, atmosphere, food, service, etc. By the time we finished, there was not a seat to be had in the entire restaurant, including the bar. Being a very cold evening, we were concerned being seated in the previously outdoor space. They have managed to keep this space very comfortable with real heating equipment. A wonderful experience, and our out-of-town guests, who had not previously had the pleasure of dining here were very impressed.

    This is a beautiful and trendy space. Great for a girls night out or dinner with friends. It is loud so be prepared. This is not your quiet romantic spot. We met friends and shared around 5 plates. All were tasty, but every time a dish was placed on our table a little swarm of bugs seemed to be surrounding it. That was a turn off. Also, my husband has a lactose sensitivity which really seemed to throw off the staff. No one could clarify if foods could be made without cheese or butter. That really adds undue stress to a night. I would return for drinks, but probably not for the food.

    I like the Boardroom been there a couple times. NYE was disappointing. Ordered prime rib way overcooked and super thin and surf and turf with filet way undercooked and more of a nugget cut with 2 shrimp. Taste was good temperature not close and value was not great. Fun environment for NYE service is always amazing.

    Mallory was fantastic! She guided us through the menu perfectly and avoided overfeeding us. She was super sweet and super happy. It was a holiday weekend, and she was dedicated to serving us well and having fun, too. The food is outstanding and drinks are creative with the old standards- smash burger, brussels salad, firecracker shrimp, flatbread and cookie skillet. Can't wait to return.

    I honestly had been wanting experience the board room since it opened. To my surprise during my first and only visit, I was not impressed. From the waitress, to the table I was seated at, food, and the high cost did not make up for anything that was lacking. I think this place is good for an evening visit for drinks and a charcuterie board.

    The food (salmon blt) was yummy with the exception of my fries, they were overcooked which saddened me because I love a good fried potato! The service for the most part was good. Our server started off attentive but soon forgot about us and it wasn’t because the restaurant was busy… so that was a little disappointing. I would probably return for dinner to get a better take on the food. Drinks were absolutely fantastic though.
