There was a hair in one of our dishes. It took 45 for the food to come out. One dish was misrepresented. Another dish was not cooked to order.
Very disappointing especially since we have been dining there for a few years.
Food was excellent, service was great,
would definitely recommend it to others. Looking forward to returning.
So disappointed. My son came into town for a quick visit and I wanted to take him out for a nice dinner. I made a reservation for 8:45pm we arrived at about 8:20 and said we were happy to sit at the bar and have a drink while we waited for our table. Took awhile to be served, but once served our drinks were excellent. Unfortunately the hostess kept clearing tables in the bar area and dropping dirty glasses and garbage right next to us on the bar and worse throwing garbage across the bar. We weren't seated until 9:15
The table was nice, but next to a foursome who forgot how to use their inside voices - not the restaurant's fault, but jeez it's annoying.
Our waiter came over, was very nice, shared the specials and said he'd give us time, but we were ready to order appetizers so we did. A few minutes later he took out dinner orders and within 5 minutes our appetizers appeared. Halfway through bread arrived. We shared the chick pea fries (excellent) and a salad (good) but no offer to split it for us, so we maneuvered around one plate.
Then we waited and waited and waited.
Out waiter came over once to say sorry for the delay, but after that he avoided our table like the plague.
I had to call him over and ask if it would be coming soon, he said yes it's being plated. 10:25 it arrived. My son's swordfish was very good, my Salmon was just ok. It had these giant cubes of dried out bread that you couldn't even put a fork into and it was not hot, like it had been sitting around for awhile. Not once did manager come over and ask how we were doing, no explanation of why it was taking so long and no offer of anything to make our wait more palatable, he was visible in the Dining room, but paid no attention to us and there was certainly no shortage of waitstaff around the room who were very involved with cleaning up tables and resetting them, but again we were ignored.
Such a disappointing experience, I would not recommend spending your money here.
Great food, nice ambiance, terrific service. One of my favorite local spots.
Thanks for a wonderful dining experience !
We've dined here several times and have always loved the food. Wednesday night was even more spectacular. Spring menu was amazing. Highly recommend Kobe beef tartare appetizer and Grilled lobster entree.
We went to celebrate an event in our family and it was wonderful! The food was amazing! As was the service
I cannot day enough good things about this restaurant. Our waitress was very attentive to my dietary needs (gluten, dairy, soy free). The chef was very accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back!
Honestly we won’t be back for awhile. Being 32 weeks pregnant I explained that I needed my salmon cooked well done. After dropping the food off at our table, no one return until after my husband was 90 percent done w his dinner. My salmon-came back medium rare at
Most , and I then explained this. The manager took the food ( my husband was done and I had yet to eat) and then when returning in cooked more, he argued with my husband that it was the lighting that made it look rare. It was slimy and red..... rare. They didn’t even offer a coffee or dessert let alone comp anything off the check. Disgusting service. Disappointing.
Best turkey burger I ever had. Moist, flavorful. Great ambiance and service.
The harborside decor was quite nice on a rainy evening. Food was delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive.
Sandbar continues to offer fresh seafood dishes set in a very contemporary dining room.
Best place on the North Shore.
The best Kale salad and THE best cauliflower main dish. Beautiful restaurant with nice ambiance!
Wonderful!! Our go to place.
Food and service very good. Two miscues -- not enough clams in the clam chowder and the Osso Bucco, excellent by the way, did not come with a marrow fork.
Love this restaurant!! Always great food and service is spot on!!! Definitely a go to spot!
This is how do it, its tuesday night, and sandbar was alright, our party of two was promptly seated inside.
Food was really good! Prompt and attentive service, overall great experience.
Also the music was great!
Great brunch menu....upscale clients.....great food and service......best steak and eggs....we willl b back....................we were there sunday arround noon....cant remember the server’s name..but he was great!!!..thank you!!
Great food but extremely loud during busy times. Hard to have a conversation at the table as a result
Food was outstanding Jake our server was friendly and knowledgeable We had the salmon the snapper special the scallops and the hamburger Everyone went home very happy
Can’t wait to go back!!
The service, food, decor, & ambiance were top notch. We will definitely be back!
Lovely, as usual. Thank you.
Food was good . The decor is great .
The hostess very unfriendly particularly after we complained about not being seated half an hour after a reservation time. This is the fourth time this is happened on a Saturday night in the year. I’m pretty sure the hostess Pasted our Concerns on to the manager who could not be bothered on engaging us or apologizing.
This restaurant seems to be very annoyed and taken back when you arrive there and tell them that you’ve made a reservation on OpenTable.
Dining experience was very nice
The bar was exceptionally crowded and extremely noisy while we waited for our table
Restaurant excellent! Been a few times but last time placed at a table by coat closet with a lot of traffic.. poor planning in situating tables....
Fabulous meal and attentive and personal service.
Lunch was perfect. We all had the salmon and it was delicious as the service by Jake! Will definitely return.
Sandbar is one of our favorite local restaurants and our go to for spur of the moment weeknight dates. Weekends are harder to get reservations since the word is out about the delicious food, friendly service and beautiful atmosphere! My husband is celiac and they are always able to accommodate his gluten free dietary needs. The staff is always attentive and personable!
Wonderful service and food!
We arrived early for happy hour ($1 oysters). Nice beer selection @ $6 and house wine @ $7. After drinks and appetizers we were seated for dinner. The entire staff was friendly. Our server was excellent and the food was also great. We will definitely return soon!
If possible get a table on the side of the dining room. The middle tables are a bit tight & every one walks behind & around you. Otherwise, a very nice place ( you can also eat in the cozy bar ). Service was attentive but not invasive. The food was excellent (had the monkfish & octopus appetizer). Highly recommended!
Great food and service !!!
Great options and stellar drink options.
The duck duo was amazing, as was the branzino. The service was exceptional. A very memorable evening.
The manager spoke to the neighboring table for a half hour so we basically had his behind in our faces for a long time. Not professional! Otherwise good meal.
Valentine’s Day 2018 - excellent restraunt- food delicious
Love this restaurant! EVERYTHING was amazing and including the staff
Great food, great atmosphere. Loud and lively. Food was excellent. Restaurant was lively and jumping. Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Bar area was packed when we were leaving. Portions were not large - my only complaint. I never clean a plate and there wasn’t a morsel left on it after this meal. Entree prices too.
This gem is decorated so nicely, our table was next to a window which I loved and I could actually hear my fiancé talk! Get the chickpea fries!! they have to be like a staple in that place. The aioli is soo good. We had Kelly as our waitress, which we requested. She is the sweetest and knowledgeable with not only the entrees but the drinks also. I got the swordfish and my date got the NY strip and both did not disappoint. They also had great specials that night, we can't wait to go back to try more!!
