    We arrived early (6pm reservation on a Friday night). They seated us (middle aged couple) next to two tables with small children (infant and toddlers) when there were plenty of other tables available. We didn’t ask to be moved as it would have been obvious to the diners with the young children and created an awkward situation. To be clear, the young families had every right to be there, especially at an earlier time, but seating a couple next to them made no sense.

    We were not in a rush and have been here several times, each time service is off, but this takes the cake. They have lots of staff standing around, we were seated and 15 minutes no water no waiter and felt forgotten. So we brought this to their attention and asked for a new seat in case this one being in an isolated area is forgotten. But the new seat took 10 minutes for water and another few minutes before being asked for drinks. Apps came out prior to drinks... At the end of the night we sat another 20 minutes prior to getting a check. Then the check already was paid by another credit card. So more time with a manager to resolve that. If the food was not amazing we would not have the patience for $9 beer and slow service.

    It was a beautiful night…doors were open to outside. Our waiter was attentive. My meal, lamb fusilli, was delicious, my wife’s risotto was very salty and a bit of a small portion for the price. We’ll definitely try again and maybe sit at the bar.

    I would consider myself a frequent customer at Steel & Rye and overall this is a very good restaurant. Yesterday I will say was an anomaly. Someone in the kitchen had a very heavy hand on the salt. I ordered the Salmon Fritters and had to send it back. tasted like a salt ball. In addition, I ordered a second drink that never came and finally told the waitress to forget it. If you are reading this, please know this isn't the norm and more feedback for the management. I will be back.

    Great, relaxed service. We sat outside at the first come first serve tables and had a drink, and then we went inside to our reserved table. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious. We even brought our own cake for my husband‘s birthday and they were very accommodating in bringing it with a candle and cutting it for us. Highly recommend!

    It would have been helpful if the server had informed us that when you order a pizza and a burger they come from separate kitchens. She didn’t let us know and my boyfriend had finished his burger (so it wouldn’t get cold) before my pizza arrived. That is after he had to send it back because they made his first burger incorrectly.

    The food was great. Crab deviled eggs, Arugala citrus salad and Mushroom pizza with Kale were all unique and delicious. Gretchen was excellent, providing informative, attentive and unhurried service. Many menu items to choose from, and all with flair. This was the kind of relaxing experience we were looking for to end the day. We will be back.

    This was the 1st time we've dined at Steel & Rye since the onset of the pandemic in 2019, and it may have been even longer than that. Our previous experience was very average at best so we did not return. However, I was looking for a dinner reservation to take my wife for an early celebration of Mothers Day and theirs was the only nearby place that could accommodate us. Well, were we ever pleasantly surprised! The menu selections were all very tempting. I opted for the Chicken-fried Mushrooms appetizer and the Fried Chicken dinner entree. I server was very attentive to our needs. My two girls ordered wine by the glass, which was very nice but on the pricey side ($13-15) compared to other area restaurants. I do not drink alcohol, but I asked our server to please keep my water glass full because I had a quite vigorous workout earlier in the day for well over 60 minutes. She left an ice cold carafe on our table and quickly refilled it before it ran dry. The restaurant was quite busy while we dined, so my kudos to her for managing multiple tables simultaneously while catering to the whims of my table. Great job! :) The appetizer was made from oyster mushrooms, which I'd never had before but my daughter, who's a pescaterian informed me there are a "very hearty variety" worthy of a meat substitute. Wowza! She was right. My only complaint. I had to share with both my girls, whcih left less for me. haha! I really didn't mind at all. Then the dinner entree: WOWZA! Our server told me it was a very filling dinner/comfort-food and she was right on. It was a crispy deep-fried chicken breast, flavorfully breaded and served over mashed potatoes and fried kale. I usually hate kale, mostly because it's so freaking popular now. People put it ion everything and served raw it has kind of a bitter after taste. Give me iceberg lettuce any day: See? I have a very unsophisticated palate but know exactly wht I LIKE! This was DELICIOUS: I finished every bite! WE SHALL RETURN!!!

    I am not sure if it was a one off day for them but I definitely was very disappointed with the food quality. Lamb fussili was cold. The pasta was undercooked and didn’t really fit well with the lamb… The risotto was somehow better but cold as well. The mushroom pizza gets barely a pass… atmosphere was nice and staff was pleasant. Definitely not the restaurant I remembered a couple of years ago.

    Amazing meal. The menu has expanded again post covid, and it’s great to have that wider selection back. The chicken liver mousse is the best you will ever have. The cassoulet was excellent. The cocktails here never disappoint. Steel & Rye is back, and perhaps, is better than ever!

    Stopped in for an early dinner before a show in Boston. There was a great vibe with a lot of good energy ( but not loud). Waiter was attentive and fantastic. Thefood was fresh and delicious. Great spring salads. Fabulous cocktails. Pizza, pork milenese & pasta. Food runner was very kind and friendly. Cookies TOGO. So happy with my choice to have food before going into Boston instead of trying to have dinner in Boston
