Overall great dining experience. Food was delicious and service was great. Only negative is they sat us at a “makeshift table” that was basically the size of an end table. Very difficult to have our fondue and entrees on the table.

I had a reservation, however we still had to wait 20 minutes, but the manager accommodated us with a glass of champagne. We were seated in a room right under the stairs, air vent and large window. It was freezing with the air conditioner on and so loud with footsteps. We waited another 25 minutes before I had to find the hostess and tell her we were never waited on. The waitress was fine but clearly spread thin and would hardly come to our table. We had to ask to get the air conditioner turned off and she said to move to the other side of the table as if the whole vent wasn’t directly over our whole table. Not my best experience at the Funky Door, and I’m sad about it.

It was the most rude humiliating experience of my life. 😩. The waitstaff stoke a tip from my friend. Our food was so wrongly cooked. And to top it off the hostess came and tried getting us to leave because they needed our table. It was horrible. Never going again. And I’ll be sure to tell everybody I know how bad it was.

Steaks were severely over-cooked and had to be sent back. Second attempt was better but were a solid medium-well even though we ordered medium. The service was very good and we were offered to have our steaks comped. We ate the steaks and insisted we pay for them but I appreciated the gesture. All in all it was a great experience and we’ll definitely be back.

The facility is very nice. The wine list is a little overwhelming. We had a nice time, but our service was somewhat slow and when the music started, it was a bit loud for any conversation even though we were upstairs. Our food was good, but not outstanding and my dish was luke warm......not hot.

I have eaten at the Funky Door multiple times before with much better experiences. The service this time was poor, even though the restaurant was not nearly as busy as it usually is. It took almost 20 min to get drinks after they were ordered, and took about the same time to get refills. The filet was very bland for such an expensive meal. We did not add on any “extras” ( such as truffle butter, etc) because a good steak really shouldn’t need any. The lobster linguini, however, was very good. Overall i was very disappointed with the service.

I was looking for somewhere different to take out of town guests. I'm also not a huge brunch fan but decided to give it a try because I saw more substantial meal offerings than I typically find on a brunch menu. My guest and I both had the Steak Benedict, one with Truffle Fries and one with Sweet Potato Fries. They were phenomenal and I am already planning my next visit.

The best in Lubbock. Their Beef Wellington is wonderful but when you make your reservations you will need to tell them in advance or your wait will be over an hour. Beef Wellington’s take a little more time in preparation so by telling them in advance no wait. Las Brisas and Scott as our waiter. A perfect Match. Tell Scott Kelley sent you.

This is the third time in two month we have had terrible service here. It took 20-30 minutes to even get the bottle of wine and it was the complete wrong one. Almost never saw our server. We come weekly but if this continues we may need to find a different regular spot.

Food was only average. It was obvious that the restaurant is poorly managed. Our server was very good but she was undermined by poor kitchen management and a lackluster overall experience. It took one and a half hours for our food to arrive.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We started with the meatballs as an appetizer. They were very good but 4 small meatballs for $12 is slightly excessive. My wife had the squash lasagna which was very good...large portion too. I had the pork chop but was disappointed with how dry/tough it was. I also had to ask the waitress to describe the spice again at the end of the meal because it was so bland(she couldn't remember and offered to get a menu but I declined). However, sweet potato tamales were served as a side and they were great! We got there at 7 and were seated immediately. Unfortunately, we were finishing up when the one man band was just about to start. Hopefully next time we will plan accordingly so we can dine and enjoy the music. If you are wine drinkers, you will be in heaven.

I thoroughly enjoyed our service that Brandy provided, but the fact that I made a reservation, but then waited over 30 minutes to be seated was a bit troublesome. Also, there is a lot of seating upstairs, but no ADA access to that seating, so it cuts the seating space in half. It's very sad that this is a brand new restaurant that was built without ADA access provided to 1/2 of it.

The decor is funky indeed but doesn’t excuse the tables next to the swinging kitchen doors or terrible lighting. The concept “less is more” is completely lost on these folks who seem hell bent on drowning everything before it goes in the mouth. And I send to send my dry martini back twice...once because there was double the dry vermouth, once because they replaced the dry vermouth with sweet vermouth. Skip this place for now.

We had booked a table for 6, but only had 5 people due to a change of one person's plans. We were seated at a table for 8 people, asked to be moved and the hostesses (who were very rude) said there was nothing they could do. However one section of the restaurant had plenty of room to accommodate us. There was a singer and band playing and they were too loud for dinner conversation and we were seated at a too large table which made conversation impossible. The waitresses were inept and brought my wife the wrong order. We would never go back to this restaurant. Also, they bill themselves as a wine bar, but nobody seemed to know anything about wine.

First visit and not the last. Well prepared food paired with a fun wine service concept that is a fit for all. A few minor kinks that can be easily improved on. Delicious escargot, better served with the untoasted bread we got after we tried the toasted version served with the dish. Loved the marrow bones app! All three Fish entrees we had were perfectly prepared!

The calamari was floating in an oil slick that they claim is a glaze. The bone-in rib eye was 1/4" on one side and 3/4 to 1" on the other side. I asked for it to be medium rare, It was med well to well on the skinny side. The manager, jessica, came to the table to address our complaints. She was argumentative and unprofessional. She brought out our meals and when she placed the bowl of mushrooms in the middle of the table, she accidentally tipped them over and a few fell out. She stuck her flesh toned band aid clad thumb into the bowl to straighten it. When asked to replace the mushrooms because of the band aid, she argued that she did not put her thumb in it. Three of us witnessed it. The way I understand the Health code, it says that they need to have a colored band aid and be double gloved since she was serving our food. The salmon was nicely seasoned but overcooked and dry. A total fail for a birthday dinner for my college kid. I will never recommend this place.
