Those check-marks in review can not really describe Teddy's.

Very courteous and attentive service. Randall was a star.

We asked for duck, and first time in my life we were asked if we wanted it medium rare.

At that point milady decided to play safe and ordered well done, I ordered medium rare.

3 days later I am still alive, and thoroughly enjoyed med-rare duck. They know where they get their ducks from, and know how to cook it!

Now a rant, may be it can add to your experience next time you visit Teddy's.

4 stars for food. After brief conversation I was convinced "melted brie" is what we would have. It was actually char-grilled, i.e. it was warmed, but not quite melted as we expected. Otherwise (breads, meats, duck) - impecable.

4 stars for ambiance. We did not get a private room ;). Also, there was a counter which should apparently house fresh baked bread at lunch time (we had dinner, so we had to imagine the loafs).

There was plenty of space between tables, overall we felt at ease and relaxed. Personnel -
5 stars.

Girl’s brunch was so much fun but the volume of the DJ was too low we could barely hear the music. Our waiter had too many tables and was unable to keep up with the customers demands but the food was good. Overall we all had a ball!

Awesome for Sunday brunch. All you can eat creative small plates and unlimited mimosas/blood marys.

Bought a $38 steak that had no seasoning and didn’t come with any sides. Rediculous

Great atmosphere and menu. Loved the braised beef, deviled eggs and caramel ice cream. Artwork was fun.

Brunch on sunday. There were spots free in the front room but my mom and I were sat in the back room which was dark and filled with groups who were having a boozy brunch, not a calm brunch with their parent. Too loud blasting music and terrible Kale salad. I always remembered this place to have great food but I don't think I'll be back anytime soon (at least not for brunch)

Was pleasantly surprised by the seri e and quality of food as I had only drank there prior to lunch today. Will definitely return.

The restaurant was definitely busy the day we were there. The food was cooked to perfection. I loved my steak salad; the steak was tender. The servers were friendly and refilled our glasses often, and they were super busy!
