SqWires Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic as usual!! There was five of us that got together to celebrate 2 birthdays and exchange Christmas gifts so we were there quite a long time. The service was delightful and we never felt rushed! The food was amazing as it always is everytime we go!!
Recommended by wife, went for my birthday - great vibe, live music was fantastic, very lively - made a reservation Sunday morning at 10 that we didn't need - picked up pretty quickly thereafter. The service didn't suffer despite our waiter being busy with a larger party. Eggs Benedict is my favorite dish so I try it anytime I see it on menu - it was fantastic. Bloody Mary bar and Mimosas are pretty great as well.
SqWires had several, fantastic Vegan choices! I and other members of Meetup Groups I work with as an event organizer look for places that offer quality choices for everyone. SqWires offered a variety of vegan and vegetarian options in a warm, relaxing atmosphere. Additionally, the staff provided excellent service. Everyone enjoyed themselves. We will be back.
Second time visiting Sqwires for brunch, and just as good as before! Bottomless mimosa bar is where it's at...$14, and our server came around repeatedly with more champagne. Loved being able to make my own juice combos at the beverage station. The food was good, too!
Earlier this year we re-discovered Sqwires. Its been around a long time with lots of changes but the food and service were very good and a great value. On any other occasion, I would have probably rated the Ambiance higher but we were having a family dinner before a show and didn't realize there would be a guitar player in the middle of the restaurant. He sounded very good but made it almost impossible for us to talk at the table. Kevin the waiter and team were very attentive and the food was great. I will go back, but probably not when I want a quite evening.
My husband and I had our first date here 6 years ago and it is "our" place. We have never been disappointed with any meal.., comfort food with a creative twist. The menu changes with the seasons so there are always new creative choices. The atmosphere is very comfortable, low lighting and authentic decor in the renovated wire factory adds to the unique and cozy experience.
Had brunch with family. Creole omlette was the favorite dish. Great Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar. Although Bloody Mary mix was not excellent. Don't sit near stage when there is live music or you won't hear table conversation. We asked to move and our server had no problem doing that. Service can be slow at times.
We went out to dinner with our daughter and her boyfriend. We were able to sit outside because it was such a beautiful evening. They had it well lit not overly bright it was just a perfect evening. The food was amazing we have been here several times before and the food and service never disappoints we would highly recommend this to everyone
