If you want a quiet dining experience, ask to be seated in the back room. The bar area is lively so it might be too noisy. The food was excellent, but the portions are smaller, so a few appetizers or a salad is called for!

Lovely restaurant but a bit overpriced for my taste. They have a 3-course $24.99 meal -- too much food for me at lunch, but a bowl of soup and salad was $25, and there was no way I could finish the salad!

We met a friend from out-of-town here for dinner on Saturday night. Seated in the dining room it was too loud to hear ourselves think so we moved to the bar area. It’s a stylish restaurant!! The drink menu is great and I had a juice concoction that was delicious. BUT the wait staff was fooling around singing happy birthday to one of them too loud as to be disruptive. The food while sounding delicious was meh. The cornbread and mushrooms were delicious but the main course salmon was a very small portion that wasn’t a good cut of a filet— very thin. Just ok. Maybe a good place for drinks and appetizers.
Loved the Teddy decor!!!

Very cute restaurant (and deceptively large). The staff was wonderful as was the ambiance. We had the crab deviled eggs and prosciutto croquettes as apps which were both insanely good as was the fresh warm bread (probably my favorite part). My husband has the short rib which I sampled and it was very good. I had the crispy chicken entree and was less impressed, mostly with the chicken itself which was sort of rubbery, the sides were tasty. I also had a very good cocktail while there. Overall it was a great meal and I would definitely go back to try the ribs entree which many people were having and seemed to enjoy. Might go back just for the bread :)

The service is some of the best I've experienced in this city! The drinks and food were fabulous. My only complaint is the portion size for the price. Only three scallops for a main was disappointing, but the ambiance, presentation, and food quality was superb. Highly recommend!

My husband had the ribs. They were juicy and fell off the bone. He loved them. I on the other hand had the risotto. It was awful. There were supposed to be mushrooms in it but I only found a few. It was overwhelmed with a smoky cheese. It was also overcooked. Also, didn't like the beet salad. There were a few big chunks of beet but it was mainly lettuce and was overdressed. Don't think we'll go back to this restaurant.

Came here for brunch with a friend. I ran a little late looking for a parking spot, and when I arrived at my table, my friend told me that we had exactly 2 hours to dine from the moment the first member of the party sits down at the table. So at that point, 10-15 min was already gone. While I understand there are other reservations later in the day, I thought that rule was a little rude (and at the time of my brunch, the whole restaurant was empty). Our server was visibly displeased that we didn't choose the buffet and instead opted for an a-la-cart option. He barely came back to check on us. The food is really good and the vibe is great - the music was loud but awesome during brunch. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to friends if they want a leisurely meal.

We enjoyed ourselves and the food was very good. But the service was not stellar. They forgot my dessert (I ordered from the pre-fix menu). And they mixed up our doggy bags. I got my friend's leftovers and she got mine. It's a nice restaurant but the service should have been better.

Food was just okay. We should have known when we asked the waiter what he would suggest, he said”well let me first tell you what not to get”...and then proceeded to name half of the menu. Great location but would have enjoyed more if the food was better.

I went for my birthday, and happened to check the open table box that it was my birthday. Wasn’t expecting anything to come of it and the waiter and (who I presume to have been) the manager were just absolutely lovely. The food was also perfect, but frankly the service and birthday love made my day.

We went for the Sunday brunch. Food is just ok. No taste to the waffles nor to their a la carte items. Founding Farmers has a much better brunch and way better tasting food. The server at the waffle station was not very customer friendly nor did he give any butter freely unless you ask. And when you ask, he seemed upset about it. The only plus is that the ambiance is lively and they have a DJ playing live music.

Poorly timed food. Entrees came out too fast and only two at a time for our party of 6. Had to keep reminding waiter for things we had asked for. Meal for 6 was fine in 1 1/4 hours. Not what we wanted. Went elsewhere for dessert to extend the night. Very unhappy looking host seating guests.
