I highly recommend the Sunday brunch at the Teddy & The Bully Bar. It's by far the best value for money, and is best enjoyed when ravenously hungry as it embodies the "all you can eat" concept, with lots of variety from which to choose.

Our server Robert was super attentive and was very respectful of our conversation. We didn't feel rushed or interrupted. The food was great as well. We had the power lunch and it was a great deal with the appetizer, entree and dessert. I had the steak and it was delicious.

I took my mother to Teddy and the Bully Bar for Mother's day and I was very disappointed. The price for brunch increased and the menu was limited. The Mother's day brunch menu did not offer many choices and what was offered was not filling. I'm not sure what the owners had in mind for the Mother's day menu, but it seemed like a bait and switch to me.

We looked at the menus for prior special events and made the reservation for a large group based on what was on the menu most recently. I found the all inclusive menu to be very limited and average at best. Brunches usually feature breakfast meats— bacon, sausage or the ability to order a al carte. That wasn’t offered. It was fine but just didn’t meet my expectations.

I ordered the lunch special - a risotto with asparagus and peas - and it was literally a soup. Could not eat it with a fork.

After more than 500 reservations made on open table, this was the worst service I ever experienced. This was unfortunate as the location, atmosphere and food was good. Not sure if I would ever go back.

I would recommend, but with caveats. We totally enjoyed our lunches; they were a bit on the pricey side, but we weren't surprised with the downtown location. The risottos were delicious, if a bit skimpy on the crabmeat. Something about the ambience is a bit off, we felt. It feels cold, not as inviting as it might be.

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.
