I requested a free bday dessert when I made my reservation and they didn’t honor it even though I spent $150 for dinner. I was disappointed. Food was awesome though.
I don't understand why we had the option to make a reservation for 9 pm, when they close at 9! So, we felt rushed and that ruined the experience!! The appetizer and salad was delicious, but the entrees were not as good. My potatoes were very salty!!! But, other than that it was a nice restaurant for date night!
Great vibe, attentive service, well prepared food!
Food was amazing with fantastic service!!
From the reservation onward it was a delight. I had put outside dinning on the reservation so they actually called that they didn’t have outside. We were given a table slightly away. Our server , and I apologize that I don’t remember her name, was a delight, friendly, attentive, professional. I had the tomato bisque which was delicious while husband ordered a Caesar salad which they kindly split for us. Then I had blackened cobia, done perfectly. Overall a delight!
Phenomenal food and stellar service. Will visit again next time in Mobile.
This was our first time here and everything was absolutely amazing. They were very busy so we did not get to try everything we wanted. That just means though we get to come back!!! The Oreo bread pudding was out of this world!!
Everything was first rate but the noise was a bit excessive. In their defense, they had a large group in a relatively small space. Food was five star hands down. Will be back!!
Food and ambiance were excellent. Only negative, and it’s small, was the stuffed chicken breast was on a bone . Most ppl like boneless breasts. It was still very good just wish it was boneless. Ambiance is good and excellent service as well. Good place and would definitely go back .
Great food and service. Thank you!
Haley, our server was great. Food was very good and came out in timely fashion.
We sat at the bar although we had reservations we did not like that the tables were so close , we decided to sit at bar food was good , fried green tomatoes were delicious although they could use more of that amazing sauce and another slice or two of the mozzarella . Steak was cooked to perfection and delicious. The blackened Cobia was a little over cooked but taste was delicious. Our bartender was great enjoyed the conversation and the service. We will be back !
Disappointing ecperience. Low quality tuna. Service fair
Birthday dinner, pork chop was outstanding, halibut was also excellent. Only complaint is that our hostess did not ask if we wanted appetizers (we kind of did want them).
I made reservations for 5:30 but arrived about 15 minutes early and they were able to seat us. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive and made recommendations since it was my first time dining there. All the food was excellent and it came out of the kitchen very promptly. I would definitely dine there again.
Overall, experience was very good, with service by Haley and wait staff outstanding. Food was perfectly seasoned on all dishes. The most outstanding was the shrimp and grits and the beautiful reduced sauce served on top of cheese grits. Restaurant decor and atmosphere, while pleasant, was on the louder side even with the place half full.
We made reservations and commented that would like earlier if available.
Got a call about hour earlier!
Seated immediately, waiter was getting drink orders and appetizers quickly. He delivered drinks and explained specials. Took our order after answering all my questions! Food came out quickly and was mouth watering delicious! SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT! White Chocolate strawberry bread pudding with sauce!
Ate what we could and he boxes the rest to take home!
Definitely worth $$ and will be back!
It was crowded and noisy. There is not enough selection on the menu. The bar didn't have enough for two margaritas. Our food took almost an hour and when we got it it wasn't cooked as ordered. We did get a free dessert but all in all I would not eat here again.
Bartender was on top of his game!
Amazing was amazing. Please try the brussel sprouts for an appetizers. You will not be disappointed
We had appetizers, wine, a fish and a steak main… the only complaint I have was that the risotto under my fish was cold. Everything else was very good.
My wife and I celebrated our 29th anniversary and decided to go to the dumbwaiter restaurant. The server was most helpful in assisting us pick out a wonderful meal. The meal was cooked perfection and all of our needs were attend to.
Food was well plated. Great taste. The restaurant was quite and had a view of the square.
The food was amazing and very flavorful! The server was very patient and helpful.
Great service and great food. I would definitely return next time in town.
We have been to the Dumbwaiter several times and love it. The service is always excellent. The atmosphere is great. They are taking reservations now when several other restaurants aren't which is very convenient. It's a bit pricey for just 2 entrees and 2 drinks each, but we will be back for sure.
This place is amazing!! We started with the Honeysuckle, which was light and refreshing. Moved into the tuna appetizer and the Brussels sprouts, which were both amazing! Then, I got the ribeye and he got the fish…spectacular! I had a Mobile Mule (a new favorite drink) and had the BEST, RICHEST, MOST DECADENT brownie a la mode ever!! The service and food was excellent! I bought a round of drinks for the kitchen and the bill was still decent for the great experience!!
Fantastic. Love this place.
We had great service. The food was better than average. We love the pimento cheese ball appetizer. The wine was delectable as well.
Food always on point. Eat here personally or with clients every time in town
Haley is awesome
Such an amazing time. Outstanding server and food! We can’t wait to go back.
First time visiting everything was nice and the food was really good. Will dine again
We take about two times a year to go on these types of date nights (order hors d’oeuvres, main meals, and dessert). Neither of us had been to Dumbwaiter, but it definitely didn’t disappoint! Everything was cooked perfectly, the service was wonderful, and so was our time together.
First impressions of building weren't good, but the food and drinks were very good. Service was excellent.
Excellent Restaurant. Steak was a little tough, but flavorful. Overall experience was good.
We thought the food was a bit overpriced for the quality. I had a great cocktail!
The food was excellent but, a bit salty. Service was exceptional.
Lovely meal food was excellent and service perfect
