    It was alright, the food and drinks were good but not anything spectacular. I knew going into it we may get the performer fee added to the bill but it was still kind of annoying that you didn't really have a choice in the matter especially if you would have opted to not listen to the performance. If there was at least times mentioned when there's usually live performances occurring that would have been useful for decision-making. Service was really slow and the waitress walked by us at least 2-3 times and even glanced towards the table but didn't check on us even though we clearly had very empty water and drink glasses. I know they weren't that busy because I had a clear view of the waiter station they were sitting at. We honestly would have stayed longer if it didn't take so long to get a new drink. I might try the other side (whiskey bar side) but I most likely wouldn't come back here.

    We were first greeted by the host who was super friendly and willing to accommodate our party of 5 instead of 4. He had to get creative with seating to make this happen. The waiter Jamie was fantastic and helpful and friendly. Food was delicious and the live music was FANTASTIC! We will be back!

    It was our first time at Time. Things to point out. The whole place needs a decorative touch up. Our seat were ripped up. Our food was very salty and the portions were slightly skimpy. Enjoyed the music! The place just needs some loving care

    Would recommend the shrimp and grits, great taste. Fusili pasta was very good, pan seared scallops also good however only served with three scallops. Recognize food costs have and continue to increase but three scallops for $36 is to pricey for me. Reasonably priced wines. Pot de crème for dessert outstanding. Added surcharge for live music which was clearly spelled out when we made our reservation which was fine. Will dine again and try the sandwiches

    So I chose Time based on the reviews of the good which were good and the promise of live music during dinner which sounded fun. So, the good was great. We had the mussels as an appetizer which were excellent. Served in a spicy broth with sausage. My wife had the Time burger and I had the braised short rib dish done with an Asian flair. Both were excellent! But our server was terrible. After taking our order and bringing food, she disappeared. No check in on the meal. I had a cocktail and would’ve ordered a glass of wine with my meal, but no one there to get it. We had to ask another server for extra napkins. Pretty bad service all around. Then the live entertainment. They charge each patron a $5 fee (so $10 for us) for a keyboard player that did lounge music and sounded like Yorku the pirate from the movie Summer Rental with john Candy. If this is their idea of live entertainment, they better rethink their concept. Only the good saved the night. I wouldn’t ho back and wouldn’t recommend.

    The live music was way, way too loud and I didn’t appreciate having to pay $5/person towards the live music. I would have rather had no live music than my table pay $15 towards it. Food was great I had the pan seared chicken! Two thumbs up!

    The experience was mediocre at best. The apps were better than the mains; one person at our table ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the amount of hoagie bread to pork was 2 to 1 easy. Very disappointing. Also, the noise with the band (that started earlier than advertised) made it impossible to speak so we moved to the bar area. They still charged us the $5/person surcharge for “listening” to the band. Won’t go back.

    The fries were good, but most of the other food was just okay. Food came out quickly! Our server was friendly and nice. After we finished the entrees, she returned multiple times to refill our water but never asked if we wanted anything else. Another drink? Dessert? Nothing! And we had to ask for the check, so I don’t think they were trying to rush us out. So weird!

    The service was excellent as was the ambience. The grilled romaine was exceptionally delicious. The shrimp and grits and the scallop entree were over dressed with sauce—- just way too much sauce.

    We came for a date night and it was a cute spot and the live music during dinner was great. Really good energy in the room, but also very cramped since it’s a pretty small spot. Definitely best to have a reservation if possible. The food was good, but we were there more for the music.

    This is less a restaurant and more a bar which serves food. The squash soup and duck were adequate but unremarkable, but the pot de creme was really very good. Service was very efficient and friendly. The venue itself is rather cramped and uncomfortable, appropriate for what it is. I am sure some people will quite like Time, but not this Gallifreyan.

    Great place for a date. Nice crowed, and of course to live music is alwsys awsome. Unfortunetly, the tables are tiny and "wabbolly". This seems to be accepted as the norm by the staff because they know what to do by plaving a book of match-sticks under legs to keep it stable. This is not cool when your expensive drinks tip over and it looks like your clumbsy or drunk to your date or others as your table suddendly moves. I really felt like Times should not have charged me for my drinks. Recommedation: For customers, you should check your table to make before ordering drinks! For Times, fix or replace your tables!

    The food was amazing, the vibe was chill, and the patrons were all having a good time. Only issue it seems there was only 2 on staff. Started good but as the crowd started showing up it took about an hr to get our next round of drinks. Took about 30 min to get our check after asking for it. Not her fault, it was extremely busy. She was running tables and 1 of 2 bar servers. I would definitely go back.
