Liz was an excellent wait person- knowledgeable and attentive without being overly intrusive. Super food and good wine selection, but the noise level got to be too much for a casual conversation with my wife.

Thanks so much for having a rather large group on Sunday to celebrate her birthday. When asked what she wanted to do, she immediately said, "Satchels" This is our go to place and love the vibe and the staff!

They were very busy on Valentine's day. Our server was frazzled and forgot to put in our drink order. He came back to ask what we had ordered in a rushed and rude tone, like it was our fault he had forgotten our order. Well, he must have seen the surprise and disappointment on our faces, because he course corrected and was courteous and more humble for the rest our time at the restaurant. I love Satchels, so was glad they redeemed themselves after a minor slip up.

Satchel’s is always a treat. Inventive takes on every dish and great cocktails. “We’re all in this together”, vibe toward enjoying life.

Wow! What a hidden gem. Can't believe we had not found this place before. Aside from being a little chilly (it's an older space and it was only 25 degrees out!) everything was wonderful. the food was delicious even though we were not aware ahead of time that they had a different menu on Sundays. Service was good and drink/wine choices were spot on. We especially love the record player and great selection of music played. Will definitely be back.

Our table wasn’t ready for 40 mins past our reservation time. Having said that, the host was quick to seat us at the bar and serve us cocktails quickly. Food was great and service was excellent once we were seated at a table. Fun, energetic vibe with vinyl 80’s music spinning away.

We introduced another couple to Satchel's and they (and we) were so pleased with a particularly fun and delicious evening. Fun with live music and a bustling venue. Delicious--fried chicken and a marvelous duck breast dish; then Brown Butter Cake for dessert. Can't miss

Great place! We've been several times and they love to shake up the menu with fun and tasty new items. They keep the menu relatively small and make sure each dish is great, vs. massive menus with huge selection but mediocre quality. Whether you're a new guest or a local/regular, you'll feel like family with great service, lots of attention, and an always fun atmosphere. Give it a shot and you'll thank yourself!

Fantastic place to have great food without the pretentiousness of white table cloth restaurants, and reasonably priced. Excellent wine and cocktail menu. The service is personal and attentive. It's relatively small so don't be surprised if you strike up a conversation with people next to you.

Small and adorable place. Unfortunately there was a birthday party for someone the night we were there so we could barely hear each other. Food was tasty! Butternut squash hummus with the house made pumpkin crackers was delicious!!! Loved the lighting and vibe. Would nearly 100% recommend if it weren’t so loud.

Satchels was a great experience. Definitely make a reservation as it is a small neighborhood spot. The vibe is amazing with vinyl records playing while a movie is projected on the back wall. The food was okay with small plates that came out a little colder than preferred but the service was attentive. Great drinks and just a very cool atmosphere. Go here if you get the chance.

I really wanted to love this place when we first walked in. It looks just like a classic neighborhood gem. However, several things led me to rate it poorly. The first issue was the size of my pasta carbonara. It was so skimpy, I thought there had been a mistake. Even our waiter said he agreed that the portion was small. After a salad, shared appetizers and pasta, I went home hungry. BMy wife’s hamburger tasted fine but the bun had to be 2 days old. My son’s duck breast was good but not outstanding. Despite the very small pasta portion it cost $29!!! The same for the average duck.
I mentioned something to the staff who graciously wanted to make things better and though I said no, still sent me home with a carry out of pasta. The last problem was the carbonara was not very tasty, even with a few black truffles.
The staff were all very nice but this will not be the neighborhood gem for us.

We have been here before and the food is excellent, but tonight’s clientele was incredibly loud and my husband and I couldn’t talk to each other at all. Guests should understand this is a small place and be respectful of other diners.

What an “unhidden” treasure! I have driven by numerous times but never considered eating there until I searched for a restaurant that could accommodate food sensitivities for my friend. Everything’s about the dining experience was terrific. I will definitely be coming back again and again.

I have a gluten, dairy and soy allergy but had a delicious dinner and great service. There are some Sunday nights when they only serve one thing like fried chicken so if you are Celiac don’t go on those nights. I heard they have a Paella night without gluten so I am planning on going to that night soon.
