    I was here for my birthday brunch. Not only was the food delicious, but the atmosphere was so fun and the staff helped to celebrate my birthday. Highly recommend!

    Food was amazing and so was the service. Make sure you order the goat cheese fondue, the steak and the catfish sandwich. All delish. Also the ladies in my party loved the goat cheese cheesecake so much that they continue to talk about it for days. A great experience and I look forward to return.

    The steak was very good but the short ribs were fatty and just not what I expected.

    Went in for casual dinner after work ended up arriving shortly before District Trivia which is hosted every Thursday. Even with the busy crowd the service was awesome! Food was great, had the burger and Pom salad and drinks were spot on.

    We had a great experience at Fainting Goat. It was my husband's 40th birthday so I had requested a candle on a small dessert while booking through open table. The staff very discretely asked for my choice of dessert without alerting my husband. They were very attentive through out. The brunch options were good and food was tasty. They brought out the dessert with a candle and gave us the last round of mimosas on the house. All together we had a lovely experience and I would definitely recommend this place to our friends as well as come back again.

    Can't wait to go back! We had the delicata squash, the catfish, and the German pancake. Wish we could have had more. The bottomless brunch was great. A good deal for experience :)

    Food was good the rib dish was well prepared. Wings appetizer were appetizing. The charcuterie was not what I expected just like a flat bread was not our preferred dish

    Thanks for the great feedback! Sorry we let you down on the charcuterie. I will share this feedback with our chefs as we evaluate our menu for the winter. Best, Patrick
