We appreciate this feedback, Jerri.

We hope you'll join us again soon at Sub Zero Vodka Bar to see what we've got in store :)

Restaurant was half empty and dirty. It took our waiter some time to greet us. He took our drink order. Not only did one of the drinks come out warm, the other came out wrong. The waiter tried to blame the drink being wrong on the bar, but it was clear he put in the wrong order. It was clear the restaurant was having an off night, so we decided to close out and leave. At that point, our waiter told us if we wanted fancy service, we should have gone to Yellow Belly. We didn’t want fancy service. We wanted the drinks we ordered. We went to Drunken Fish across the street.

Excellent traditional and custom house rolls. Fresh fish and the finest ingredients. Nice atmosphere for a starter before a night out. Bar side has chic’ ice bar and 100’s of vodkas and infusions.

Excellent dinner date location or for just cocktails. Dressing up for this place will only up your game, yet jeans can be pulled off here.

Our table was ready as soon as we got there (which was a few minutes late because of CWE parking)! It was a Saturday night and they were busy but our waiter was great. It took awhile to get drinks sometimes but it didn't inhibit our experience at all. That's kind of what you get when you pick a popular restaurant on a Saturday. And the drinks were great! We had two people with soy allergies and one with a shellfish allergy and our waiter made sure everything was perfect for them. We are very happy with our experience. Thanks, Sub Zero!

this place used to be awesome, but over the last few years the food has gotten TERRIBLE. The restaurant was so cold we all ate with our winter coats on, they were out of all their beers, and even though we were the only party in the bar we still had to wait an hour to get a beer even

We have loved subzero since we moved here two years ago. Anytime we have visitors in we always go! Food and bevs were on point and atmosphere has been great.
This last time was actually terrible. We were sat at a table in the middle of the loud bar right in front of the door when it was 25 degrees outside. We were told we would be moved to the dining room when a table cleared. Never moved. So we sat for about 2 hours - only ordered apps cause of course we were starving at that point waiting for our table to actually eat our meal and enjoy. In the two hours we were there the service was so slow we each only got two drinks. Thankfully there are a bunch of Restaurants nearby and we left. Staff being notified didn’t seem to care too much to make it happen. We had a reservation by the way.
The bathroom was also horrific. It looked like it was 3 am after a raging night. Out of toilet paper not cleaned in ages. Our res was pretty early in the night, maybe around 7, for it too look like that already.

We love sub zero for big group dinners but our experience on 1/26 was completely ridiculous. I invited 10 people to go to dinner and i completly regret it. Our waitress who was clearly high on pills and so out of it, continually brought out drinks we didn’t order and it took over 30 minutes to get our actual drinks. All night she brought out the wrong things and then would disappear. At the end of the meal she mixed up the all the checks and it took another 30 minutes to leave.

Food was awesome! The service was not. When we first walked in we were not greated, the two hosts were just staring at an iPad for a few minutes until they lamely offered us four seats at the bar... but if they would’ve spoken to us they would’ve known right away that we had reservations. After we were sat at a table in the corner by the freezing cold exit door, we decided on some good martinis.... but it took flagging down a busboy to get a sever who finally made his was over 20 mins later. Zak was awesome and super nice. But it still didn’t make up for the food runners who threw down our sushi and made a run for it. We had no chopsticks or soy sauce. We sat and looked at our delicious food for another 10 mins before we flagged someone down again. The whole experience was frustrating.

A friend and I had dinner and cocktails. We had a reservation and waited about 15 minutes before ordering. After we received service, we waited about 15-20 minutes for our drinks were brought to the table. We each ordered soup (Miso soup), salad (Seaweed & House Salad), and an entree (Derek Roll). All of which were very tasty.

Visiting from Chicago and saw “Vodka” in name and we were there. Ate on patio (which is basically on the sidewalk outside the restaurant) which is not super relaxing, but great for people watching. Our server was very sweet and took good care of us. We each had martinis, which were very good, and built our own burgers. The waygu beef was very good and great assortment of toppings to choose from. My husband had his on a gluten free bun - he said was one of the better he’s had.

We enjoyed dinner at subzero. No real complaints. Food, service and atmosphere were all solid. I thought the prices were reasonable and you definitely "got what you paid for". We had 2 appetizers - would not recommend the pretzels with cheese sauce (pretzel was super dry - very average to poor overall). Onion rings were good. Had 2 double cheeseburgers and a lot of sushi. Also, several drinks from the bar. Again, everything was good, but nothing was great. No WOW factor at subzero, so you will want to check any unrealistic expectations at the door. You will have a good (but not great) dinner that is worth the price you pay.
