    Great place to hang and eat. They have no the moderately priced items and pricey things. There’s something for everyone. The chicken fried mushrooms were a modern wonder - delish!

    We went for a nice meal on a saturday night. The place was buzzing and they sat us within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The service was fine. Not terrible and not terrific. We had the smoked salmon fish balls for apps and the Chicken fried oyster mushrooms - they were delicious. The mains were not as uniformly great. We had a pizza - was really good as well as the bolognaise. The chopped salad was not as tasty as I would expect It was more of a grain bowl than a chopped salad. All in all, it was a good evening

    I ordered the pork, medium well. It was served red in the center and in contrast to the description listed on the menu, was wrapped in bacon. Our server seemed to disappear so I had another employee send it back in exchange for the Chop Salad. Our server never came by to ask how our food was, but he did ask if we would like to order another round of drinks! He did not seem to notice or care that I was now eating a salad instead of the pork , however the change in meal was reflected on the bill so he was aware. I will say the chop salad was good, but the service was very poor and atmospheric wise it’s not the best place if you’d like to have a conversation with friends because it is incredibly noisy. The food is overpriced.

    My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner. We were sat early for our 5:45 reservation which was nice. Our server Sierra was so lovely. She was super attentive offering us recommendations across all phases of the meal and was super helpful. My wife had the chicken sandwich which was delicious. It doesn’t come with a side of fries which is a little disappointing but we remembered to order some because Sierra let us know. I had the pepperoni pizza which is one of their bread and butter meals. My wife had one of their cocktails, Pineapple Express, which was gin deliciousness. Their cocktail menu changes seasonally which we learned too so we will definitely be back in the Spring to see what options they have. Can’t wait to make it back out!

    Excellent service! Very accommodating and prompt. Both indoor and outdoor seating. The only danger indoors is the new bakery, which is right in front of some tables! (One of the members of our party went to the bakery three times during the meal).

    At lunch, Food quite tasty but system of ordering by app from your table a little confused. No-one explained the system to us. After 20 minutes I finally got up and asked if anyone would take our order only to be told we had to order at the counter. Had trouble with online menu but printed menu is for dinner not lunch, so further confusion. It then took a while to get our food, which, at least, was quite good. Host was apologetic about confusion.

    Food was good, cocktails were great. Server seemed scattered despite it not being too busy. Had to repeated ask for simple things and even flag other servers. Also ate in shifts as one meal came out and then our pizza was given to another table. So 2 of us ate and the 3rd person had been done for 10 minutes

    Very disappointed in the lamb/pasta main dish. Overcooked pasta, not quite enough lamb and strangely wet, and almost no kale. Missed the veg the most. Did have good flavor. Can highly recommend the pork dinner which one of our group ordered. Generous and perfectly cooked. Will get next time. Service good, booth nice. Good choice of app’s and appreciate the many veg side dishes available. Hope for better next time.

    Servers were phenomenal & ambiance was great. Not loud, and just pretty. But, someplace that has a hamburger & chicken sandwich for $20 should give you a few fries or their homemade chips. This is a turnoff. Where else do you go that you do not get either with a sandwich. Plus they used to always give you the homemade chips & homemade pickles with a burger!

    This was an especially great experience, as I was proposing to my partner over dinner. I reached out to the staff in advance and they were excited along with me, offered us a more private table, and even celebrated with us by offering some treats after he said "yes." Several staff members even stopped by to congratulate us, which was so sweet. On top of that, the food and service were excellent and the ambiance is a nice combo of romantic/lively and refined without being snooty/stuffy. We'll be back!

    My only bit of feedback is that I was a little disappointed that while we were sitting at the high top tables the AC came on and my wife was freezing. This is the second time we have run into the issue. Hopefully they figure it out. We live in Milton and love everything about S & R and will continue to go on a regular basis. The food, cocktails and service are always a 10!!!
