Our first time dining out in seven months! We ate outside. Not a scenic setting, but we were on a side street with very little traffic. Tables were distanced. Wait staff were masked and didn't come close. Felt very safe.

Great staff greeting. Bar seating. Server was pleasant and patient. Drinks took a while to arrive but apps were served quickly. Pei oysters and deviled eggs which were on point. Fish and chips were tasty but the fish batter was a tad bit salty.

The service is perfect, the ambiance is a nice irish pub feel perfect for an intimate date by the fireplace or a celebration with friends in a large room. The drinks are well made, food is filling and presents well. We always have a great experience here. We recommend the ricotta as a starter!

Noise level is only because of 2 kids screaming next to our table. This old pub ambiance is great, so was our waitress. Food was average and they are not really ready for non gluten options. Disappointing coming from a Steven Starr restaurant.

Every time I eat here I ask for “over medium eggs” because the chef makes their fried eggs undercooked. And even with saying over medium I still get eggs that aren’t even cooked to over easy. It’s still gelatin form in some areas, so gross. I don’t know who would ever eat their eggs like this. Seriously, cook your fried eggs to how your customers ask. This has happened to my friends and family too on other occasions.

We dined outside and enjoyed a nice table with plenty of room. They have heaters for chilly evenings which is nice. They were quite busy as it was a Friday evening so service was not as responsive as it usually is. A couple of us had the Tandoori chicken and unfortunately it was a bit dry. But overall I recommend Dandelion for a nice hearty meal during the Fall.

Food wasn’t good, overly salty. I didn’t even eat it bc I just couldn’t. Waiter wasn’t attentive at all, mostly dealt with a multitude of different staff so not really personalized experience. Overall meh to ok at best this time around. I’ve had better experiences here before. I’m gonna assume it’s maybe covid.

I ordered their burger and it came out on a wood tray...the tray had what appears to be leftover avocado dirt...see picture...it was very unpleasant to see it...I notified the server and right away he said it was unacceptable and they made me a new one...the on-shift manager came out and said the burger was going to be complimentary due to the inconvenience...the burger was good, the service was great, but very unfortunate they didn’t clean the wood tray properly and nobody noticed the dirt before bringing my burger out the first time.
