Great atmosphere, quaint local neighborhood spot with a great vibe and outstanding service. The bar is where it's at! Absolutely loved the peach burrata and corn cakes. Definitely going back.

Food is great! Service was slow Brought us (6 guests) our drinks one at a time, Then never asked us if we wanted another drink. Maybe the owner should be helping out!

My wife and I loved the ambiance. Very cool bar area. Service was excellent! My wife had the steak, which was cooked perfectly, medium rare, but was cold when it arrived at the table, her vegetables were very hot. My Salmon was perfect temp and cooked expertly. It was my wife's birthday so a very disappointing experience.

This place is a perfect neighborhood gem. Nice bar if you want to eat at the bar and wonderful music playing. The food was absolutely delicious, the heirloom tomatoes were to die for. Our server was fantastic and the bartender made one of the best vodka martinis I have had in a very long time.

I made a reservation for 4 at 6pm on a Friday night. We were dining with another couple and we all arrived on time. They were already seated with drinks and we joined them at a table in the front near the window. Our waitress , very pleasant , came by and asked if we wanted something to drink. We asked for a minute to look over the drink menu. She stepped away and then another gentleman came up to the table with an iPad and started talking to us. I thought perhaps he was the waiter. However without introducing himself he proceeded to tell me that he had a reservation for a table of 6 at 7:30 and that basically we needed to be done and gone by then. It was absolutely the rudest thing I have ever experienced in a restaurant let alone one that considers itself a fine dining experience. I asked if he would like us to leave now and he looked clueless. If we had not been with friends I would certainly have left. I grew up waiting tables and understand the need to turn them, but to tell a diner before they even order that they need to leave in 90 minutes is incredible. Our waitress was great and apologized and tried to make the best of the evening and she did a good job. However the man (whom I assume was a manager) set the tone for the evening and nearly ruined it. I made a reservation on open table and secured a time for four that was listed as available. There was no note that said since it was Friday night I would need to be done at 7:20 so they could seat another table. If so I certainly would never have booked the table. If they have this policy they need to advertise it. Again this is the most incredibly rude thing that has ever happened to me in a nice restaurant , and while the food was good and the place cute, I somehow feel a $300 bill for a group of 4 deserves more than a 90 minute time frame. And just for the owners information dining at our own pace we finished sat 7:40 so they created as issue where none had needed to exist.

Satchel's is a neighborhood gem. I am so glad we popped in after just driving by two years ago. The food never disappoints, the menu is always changing with the seasons, and the staff is beyond amazing! We can always count on a wonderful evening when we make a reservation at Satchel's. We can't recommend it enough. Might I also say that the squash blossoms that we ordered last visit were wonderful, I highly recommend getting them.

My fiancee and I went to Satchel's to celebrate a milestone birthday. We had never been before. When we made the reservation, we alerted them to dietary restrictions (we both have celiac disease). They called and left a message outlining their food options for us, and it was clear they understood our needs and would be able to provide a gluten-free meal.

We were there for a special menu Sunday. We ordered shared plates of short ribs, asparagus, heirloom tomatoes and a potato salad. All were delicious (and "fancier" than they sound here)! Service was excellent, the music was perfect, the ambiance charming. We would go again!

I've been historically thrilled but seems they no longer have the same chef and it showed. Waiter was distracted not very warm, or attentive. I should not feel like an annoying afterthought. Too pricey for the portions without knocking it out of the park. I'll try again, but it will be awhile. I understand restaurants have transitions and growing pains.

Neighborhood gem, cozy, lively little oasis. Outstanding food and knowledgeable friendly service, fantastic cocktails, especially the ‘reporter’s deadline’. Fresh innovative appetizers, the flatbread was exceptional. Wonderful sea bass, so well prepared. Great vibe, highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience! My one caveat was that my burger was rare when I ordered medium. My husband ate it for me. The rest of our 6 meals were outstanding. Our server (Liz? Lynn?) Was wonderful. She checked with the kitchen and dealt with our gluten free/celiac needs.

Satchel’s never disappoints. It is such a cozy neighborhood restaurant, but has the freshest, farm-to-table, beautiful food, and lovely cocktails. We went on Sunday, and shared a variety of the family-style plates — all were amazing. We are always excited to go back for another meal!

We chose Satchels for a graduation celebration dinner, and it was perfect — from the appetizers to the main meal to the desserts. I especially appreciated the small size but intense flavor of the dessert — so I didn't leave with that overstuffed feeling. Our only recommendation for change came from the vegetarian in the group, who would like for restaurants in general to offer at least two vegetarian choices so that the choice of dinners is not already made for him.

Oh my gosh! What a wonderful surprise. I was in town for work and looked on OpenTable and found this gem. Small with a funky young French feel. A turntable with lots of old records everywhere. My mocktail (mint lemonade) was amazing!! I'll be back.
