First time at their new location. It was great. Nice live band. Our service was excellent. Would recommend for all occasions.
I met a friend for Saturday brunch the table location, the service and the ambiance were impeccable! Kate was our server and she did an amazing job! The menu selections were varied and the food we ordered looked amazing and tasted so as well. The jazz was entertaining in the back ground but soft enough that conversation was easy. This was my third time visiting and I will be back as often as possible. The funky door is an oasis in the middle of the desert. Would recommend to anyone local or new to town, definitely a must do in Lubbock!
My husband and I loved our first experience at The Funky Door! High quality surroundings, great food, very friendly waitstaff. And the live music was wonderful! Such a fun evening!
Great food and atmosphere. A little noisy..hard to hold a conversation. The music was excellent, but too loud. It shouldn’t be like a concert when people are eating and trying to talk.
Spaghetti squash lasagna was over cooked
Salmon was very under cooked
Server was very poor
Poor meat quality. The filet had no flavor and tasted equivalent to Cracker Barrel.
I made reservation for 3 ended up just being 2 of us. We got there a few minutes early music was very loud. We were taken to our table up stairs, last table to the wait station. The wait staff was very loud. I asked our waiter to move us, he did very quickly. Our waiter was Ben, he was wonderful. After our meal he took us on a tour of the restaurant. He made us feel very special.
Went for Brunch, it was amazing! The fondue was delicious, my husband had the omelet which was HUGE, I had the stuffed avocado eggs Benedict which was incredibly tasty! Everything was cooked perfectly, including the poached eggs. Bottomless mimosas to boot! We will absolutely be going again. They dinner menu looks amazing and the wine list is extensive.
Overall the place was very nice decor and atmosphere. We ordered 16 oz ribeye, which my husband said it had no flavor and was more fat than steak. I myself ordered the filet mignon and it was very tender but again had no flavor. We usually do use steak sauce but requested it for our entrees. The cheese sticks were awesome and the sides with our entrees were very good. Our waiter, Levi was very attentive and made sure we got a little treat being it was our 35th anniversary.
It was my friend’s daughter’s birthday. Drinks at brunch were great, perfect table upstairs and the live music was spot on. Only issue was the food mix up. On the positive side the mix up turned out to be something we’d try in the future. On the negative side the birthday girl ate alone
The food was delicious, the wine selection amazing and the entertainment was perfect. Can't wait to visit again and sit on the patio. Great service and a great time!
Had reservations but waited over 10min for a server just to get water. It was not busy yet. There was a late table but it was not our servers. After that service was great. If you sit upstairs be ready for a bouncy night. It didn’t bother me but my wife had a hard time. She felt like she was sitting in an even in West Texas wind. The appetizer was great. Her chicken was “ok” per her but could have been any restaurants chicken in town no wow for the price. Her side was bland she ate part of it. My Kobe burger, (recommended by our server) was excellent. Great beer, spirits, and wine list. May go back but not sure
Enjoyed our experience and the atmosphere. Our food was delicious and really enjoyed our appetizers...the homemade burrata was yummy! The service was prompt and friendly. The cool space is a refreshing addition to Lubbock's dinner options.
Very impressed! The service was phenomenal. Our server was extremely attentive and hospitable. The food was delicious and the mimosas even better. Will definitely return in the near future.
Always a great experience, great service and great food!
Excellent service, amazing wines and a great menu.
We loved the Funky door. We had the best server, who helped us choose wine, cocktails, and appetizers! The jazz band was amazing. The pepper jack fondue is amazing!!!
Delicious. Our waiter, Levi, was super. I had some dietary requests and he conveyed them perfectly and the kitchen carried them out. Wonderful upgrade from the old space.
Overall decent experience. The bar and atmosphere are great. The food is average. If you’re not going to season my food in the kitchen, at least give me the option at the table with a salt and pepper shaker. Why can’t Lubbock get a complete fine dining restaurant? West Table has a great kitchen and an average bar. The Funky Door has a great bar with an average kitchen.
When we arrived there was no hostess and we waited 4 minutes to be seated. Now, that doesn’t sound like much but it felt like an eternity when you’re hungry. The service was fair. We had to wait a bit for service. It appeared they only had one waiter with 14 tables. I get P&L control but at the expense of service? The food was pretty good. I’d like to also point out that the Funky Door has exceptional ambiance and the set up is very nice with a good sized rounded bar and a second floor. I wouldn’t mind grabbing a drink there at night.
Well, it was a mixed experience.
Food was good as usual but the brunch menu wasn’t overtly different than their evening dinner menu (mire of twists on dishes they already serve).
Table Service was good. But reception wasn’t - they saw my overtly pregnant wife (who isn’t more than 5 ft) and yet decided that the high chair was the best place to offer for seating (alternative being upstairs seating which doesn’t have a restroom nearby - only restrooms are located 2 flights below and that’s a pain for a heavily pregnant woman).
Also they knew it was her birthday but didn’t acknowledge it, which always shows that the staff went an extra mile.
I tipped well (20%) as I liked the food and the server.
But wouldn’t choose this place for a special occasion.
Tip - if your wife is pregnant, please let them know ahead to reserve a regular table DOWNSTAIRS.
Absolutely loved the Funcky Door!! This was my second time to go, and it was just as good of an experience this time! Definitely recommend going for a fun date night!
Great overall experience! We were in and our in about an hour! Will definitely come again!
This place was great! Server was amazing, other friendly staff, food was delicious, quiet setting mostly, etc. I brought my friend for his B-day and it was pricey but everything we had was delicious. A few odd combinations, but even the odd combos paired nicely, like the fried pickles and cheddar (See! Odd but strangely delicious). It was a much needed "hit" after the last few "misses" we'd experienced our last few restaurant picks.
This is a local restaurant/bar with great ambience. I was a regular at the first location; however, the second (new) location is just spectacular. Ben has always been my favorite server and he always will be. Ben is a true gentleman, knowledgeable about food and spirits, and an overall fun/authentic person to help with menu and drink decisions. He is a gem!!! The owners should clone him!
I always love the food and service at Funky Door.
Really enjoyed the evening. Waiter was very attentive. Food was better than ever. First time to visit the new venue. Much better than the old one.
The wine was way to pricey for the amount I got. It was good but too much money. The food was good as well but, it was pricey too. I will choose a different drink and menu item next time. If I get to go again.
Our waitress was busy but, she did a great job. I could not leave her a tip unfortunately because I spent all the money I had for my budget that night.
Great evening celebrating Valentine’s Day at the Funky Door!
Restaurant had Valentine’s Day meal special. We ordered the special unbeknownst that the special was per person not a couple. The server or the menu did not indicate that the price was per person. When asked to speak with a manager the front desk associate simply gave us her name and offered a free drink for our next visit. We felt a bit taken advantage of and will not be going back there again.
this was our first time to eat at the funky door. it was a very nice place to eat our valentines dinner.
Getting better all the time in terms of service. Food is very good. Menu is varied, offers something for everyone. Live music can be much too loud if you sit downstairs. The Ahi tuna is fabulous and be sure to try the truffle fries! We will keep going back.
It was very busy, had a shared server, with a table of 30. Why would management do that?? We hardly saw him, several times trying to stop another server to request anything (such as empty drinks for almost 30 minutes) a manager never stopped by to apologize, in our 2 1/2 hours there, not from meandering, but editing that long for our food. Food was not what it usually is, love this place, but very disappointed in this visit.
Great food and service!!!!!
Great wine list and good plus food! Highly recommended. Repeat customers that drove from out of state for the threat meal and Moonlight Musicals...
My wife and I went to the Funky Door for an early Valentine's Day dinner. When you plan a night away from the kids, and take time to make these plans, including a reservation, you expect certain things. First off, we were not seated at our reservation time. We should have known that was a sign of things to come. We were seated in a side room, which seemed ok, given it was a little bit quieter. Our service was horrible. Our wine flight arrived with no description of which wine was which. The highlight of our dinner was the fondue. That was it, as our steaks both arrived overdone - my medium rare was a medium well. They corrected the issue, but no visit from chef or manager, no offset on bill.
Long delays between courses, no glasses provided with bottled hefeweizen beer, no fondue forks provided. When you spend nearly $200 (!) this is not what you should expect. We won't be returning, many other worthy choices in Lubbock.
Beautiful building. It has lost some of the intimacy that the other restaurant had. It was very noisy.
Great place. We had two couples cancel out on us so they were just so gracious in reseating us, especially since this was Saturday night. Great food and excellent menu. The Chilean Sea Bass was not quite up to par but everything else was perfect and at appropriate temperatures and such. Highly recommend.
The Funky Door is a very nice restaurant. Unfortunately the regulars at the bar seem to think they own the place, and make passing by the bar to the restrooms impossible. The management might want to ask them to be considerate of the other patrons, so everyone can enjoy their visit.
Had my wife's birthday their, waitress (Halle) was so polite and nice we had A-blast. Will Definitely be back. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family.
