Melinda our server was AMAZING as usual!!! She is so fun and bubbly and knows the food and drinks well. We’ve had her now a few times in a row and frankly I don’t think we want anyone else (even though I know they are all great). The food was outstanding, never do we not like something. We always go for something different and it’s always delicious! Can’t say enough - We LOVE Table 128 and their awesome food and service never disappoints! Thank you again for a lovely dinner and night out💜

Nice lunch with girlfriends. Great service and delicious food (... and due to Covid ... they’ve placed very functional clear vertical partitions in the main dining area between tables.) So nice to return to this restaurant with good friends. Happy we can support them ... and happy they are staying ahead of all Covid has thrown at the dining industry.

We have always loved our experience at Table 128. Friday was the first time we couldn’t give the whole experience a 5. This doesn’t mean we won’t be back but my entree was cold, I sent it back and while I was waiting had a bite of my husbands steak and it was cool at best. He did not send it back but for a $30+ entree you shouldn’t settle and he did.
We will be back, it’s our favorite place to go when we have a special occasion or just need an outing. Bummed we had our first less than excellent experience.

Best restaurant in town to send off 2020 and begin 2021!!! Seriously this place NEVER disappoints. Our server - I believe her name was Melinda? (Sorry - I know she just got engaged) She was great too, we have had her a few times and she is always so sweet and upbeat!!! We always try something new and this time was no exception. The shrimp and pork belly was awesome, the chestnut soup was Devine and our entrees - Pork chop and Sea-bass sooo good we both just shared. Honestly I know I say it every time but you have to try this place if you have not already! Happy New Year!
