We were overall very pleased with our visit. Place was great for kids and adults alike. Food was fantastic!!!! Service left a little to be desired, our server was slow and would disappear for periods of time. We had to ask for drink refills, my Chicken Parm plate was handed to me by the staff rather than being placed on the table and it was a very hot plate so I'm glad I didn't drop it (was wearing white pants too!!), then we waited so long on our bill I was beginning to think it was free. Salads came out with the food so that was strange, maybe that's normal here but I'm accustomed to getting a salad before the food. But like I said the food was absolutely fantastic and we weren't in that big of a rush so they get 4*.

Delicious food and nice restaurant. Jamil was an excellent server. Conscientious and just good at what he does. Very friendly. We enjoyed it immensely. We will be back.

Our waiter actually saved this for us- the hostess has a terrible attitude- not sure you want her to be the face of your restaurant. The oatmeal whoopee pie was my husbands favorite. He loved that!

Service is consistently lacking. I keep giving Teds another try because my love for lunch and my boyfriend’s love for brunch makes it hard to satisfy us both but Ted’s does a good job. The problem - the wait staff is shockingly slow, inattentive and disengaged.

After dropping food off the runners disappear and the waiters come back half way through the meal even when you’re eating meals that usually imply dropping off condiments like hot sauce with omelets and ketchup with hash browns. The waiters don’t even pass by your table to give you the chance to ask if you need anything. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve given less than a 20% tip and Teds is one of them.

I had the Mexican street corn salad with chicken. The chicken was tough and the salad was okay. The strawberry pop tart was amazing.

We went for breakfast and it was not too busy. Our waiter was very attentive and got us everything we needed. The portions were definitely equivalent to the price (we were thinking prices were steep initially), and the tarts are tremendous!

We were greeted promptly upon entering and taken to a table immediately. Soon we were greeted by a server and place our beverage orders. they arrived soon thereafter. We placed our orders which took 20 minutes or so to arrive. We were attempting to order another cappuccino and had a hard time flagging down our server. We caught someone else's attention and they seemed bothered we were asking, then someone else came by to see what we wanted. We placed the order then decided to get it to go. It took a bit of time to get our check. The food was good, the service could use some work.

Our service was sub par to say the least. She was lacking a sense of urgency. Had to ask multiple times for our correct drink order. Her disposition towards us was a little harsh. Almost as if having our table was a bother to her. We came in with another couple looking for a nice breakfast before exploring the city. Food was awesome but the service out a bad taste in our mouth. It came highly recommended from a friend of ours.

Food was good, and our server was really nice. We arrived at a shift change, so our server switched fairly soon after I arrived. Service was a little slow around that point, but improved. I left my credit card at the restaurant accidentally, and when I went back to get it, everyone was really helpful!

I met at this restaurant with a colleague. The service was excellent and professional. The quality of the food was very good. I really enjoyed my meal. The drinks don't come cheap but they're strong. You only need one. I appreciate that we were not rushed to leave as my colleague and I had a lot to talk about. My only recommendation is that they get a better desert menu. It didn't have many options, which is ironic because the restaurant has an extensive bakery. Poptarts are not a desert for a restaurant of this caliber.
