    Great service. Food was excellent. I wanted to save my sweet potato fries to take home for another meal. The waitress took my plate to box up the left overs. She came back a little later to tell me that someone had trashed my left over food away, but she was having the chef to make me some fresh fries to take home. I thought that was really nice. They didn't have to do that.

    Food was superb! Artichoke dip was best I’ve ever had, served with reallyYummy homemade pita bread and chips. For the main course, we had grilled salmon with creamy risotto - both excellent, as well a ribeye sandwich that was also delicious. Generous portions, lovely atmosphere, great service. We’ll bed back for sure; highly recommend!!

    Th only disappointment was that the restaurant was out of the catch of the day. They ran out the day before. Otherwise terrific. I rate the restaurant and staff a 9.9/10. 0.1 difference due to being out of the catch of the day. Service rating 10/10. I recommend it especially for special occasions.

    We had a party of six for Mother’s Day brunch. The food and the service was outstanding! We were seated immediately and our waitress promptly took our drink orders. The food was brought out in a timely manner. The salmon and roasted vegetables was the best I’ve ever had. My husband and I will definitely be back for dinner.

    The food was not as good as I read in the reviews. I am pretty sure most of what we ate was from a freezer. It wasn’t bad but it was not what we were expecting. The steak was definitely cooked on a dirty grill. The noise level was pretty high at times but I cannot complain about the service. It was great.

    The food was delicious especially tuna with horseradish risotto. The service was a little slow but it was worth it. The only major complaint is the noise level in the restaurant. It seems that the sound is bouncing off the walls and high ceiling even if people are not speaking loudly. It can probably be addressed with some noise absorbing canopy and/or wall covering.

    We had a delightful dinner at The 220 Cafe’. This was our second time there, and we were once again impressed by the quality of the service and food. Everything was delicious. Our favorites dishes were the Brussels sprouts appetizer, the Yellow Fin Tuna and Filet entrees, and the berry tart dessert. We will definitely be back!

    Such a great little spot downtown, especially for a night out. The food was great and the whole environment was very relaxing. It did take quite awhile to get our food would be my only complaint— but it was worth the wait, it was delicious!

    The menu had something for everyone. And even though some of the items were well-known items, such as mussels and their version of a firecracker shrimp, their take on these items was a little bit different and more special.

    I took two friends who are Mormon missionaries from out of town to 220 last Monday night. Each of us ordered a different entree and all three of them were amazing. I had the shrimp and grits, one of my buddies had the grilled pork chop with the cranberry/mango chutney, and my other buddy had the salmon. We shared a slice of the key lime cake for dessert. My friends were blown away by how good everything was. I have eaten there enough times that it didn't surprise me. I had two glasses of wine, while they of course did not drink. Including a generous tip (which our server deserved) I dropped about $175 in all. Worth every penny of it.
