The pear salad was amazing! Wine list was impressive and service was great. Nice building, comfortable and nice looking restaurant.

My best friend and I celebrated the birth of my grandson. Our waiter was delightful and suggested wonderful and yummy food and wine. We were able to sit upstairs away from the live musical performer. That made it easy to talk and hear one another. Looking forward to returning.

Food was great. Service left a lot to be desired. I can understand it was a busy night and they were having some issues with their credit card system. But it took 30 min to get our waiter to acknowledge us, and that was after we flagged down the hostess after sitting for 15 min.

Food was wonderful, server was great; however it took more than hour for our food order- it was Mother’s Day, so I understand it was busy. We’ll be back—but not on a holiday!!

We went for brunch on Mother’s Day. The food was good, although we were disappointed that they didn’t have a special menu for Mother’s Day. Just the same brunch menu as any regular Sunday. The server appeared to not want to be there. She did not acknowledge Mother’s Day until we were almost done. She did offer the mom at the table a complimentary mimosa like the other servers did. She never brought salt and pepper after it was asked for. We had to ask for syrup for our waffles. We had to remind her to bring water. She was not attentive at all. We have always had a good experience here until today. We will be going back but will make sure not to sit in Linda’s section. This was a very disappointing experience.

The waitress was really nice but there wasn't much to choose from when it came to food. The food we ordered was nasty and overpriced. The cocktails were overpriced as well. I will not be going here again.

Overall a fun night. We had to ask to be moved because our table wobbled badly, even after our waitress tried to fix it. The food and drinks were excellent. Our waitress forgot to put our food order in, but they were quick to remedy the problem when they figured it out. Live music was great, overall ambiance was nice.

My son and I went for brunch Saturday. They were very busy, but we still had amazing service. Maddy, our server, was amazing! Also, several other servers stopped by the table to deliver food, fill drinks, etc. In addition- the hostess at the front, Emily, went above and beyond.

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!

Nice upscale wine bar in Lubbock (a rare find). Loved the atmosphere and enjoyed a nice dinner during our recent visit. Management overlooked a request I had made prior to our arrival, though went out of her way to apologize for the oversight. Will definitely return.

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

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

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.

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!

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.
