Guild House post pandemic was just as wonderful as pre pandemic, which is amazing as most of the restaurants nearby were closed or nearly empty. Same great food and service, same happy buzz…a real treat.

We celebrated our anniversary by having a lovely romantic dinner at the Guild House.
To start the evening we were treated to champagne compliments of the house and ended the meal with a complimentary dessert. Our waiter was wonderful. He was very helpful in making suggestions and pacing our meal in a relaxed manner. A perfect evening to say the least!

Our food was delicious, we were happy with almost everything we ordered, but the volume and the service was off-putting. Our server was great, but I think she was sat a large party while also trying to wait on bar tables so we waited a long time for our food, a long time for our drinks, and a long time to have the check picked up. I don't believe this was her fault at all, she's clearly a great server when she has time to handle all her tables and in this case, I believe we just caught her in the weeds.

The volume was difficult. We were moved to the bar where it was quieter but a table next to us was speaking SO loudly and cursing constantly. F bombs at volume, the whole time.

The food was for the most part really good, but there were some misses. My husband's sea bass was great but didn't go with the lobster broth, he felt. My filet was great but for medium rare, was not very tender. We loved the toasts and asparagus salad until husband got a bite of what tasted like rancid prosciutto.

I hope to come back for happy hour or something like it, but the volume was just too much for us to be able to focus on conversation and being a Monday, didn't expect it would be.

From the welcoming upon arrival, to the friendliness and helpful suggestions of the server, and the quality and timelines of serving the appetizers and meal, it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The food was delicious with appropriate serving sizes and beautiful presentation! Decor , lighting and lower sound level was calming and set a perfect atmosphere for dining. Highly recommend!!

The appetizers and drinks we ordered were delicious. Highly recommend the tuna ribbon. Problem was our server never came back to ask if we wanted another drink or to take our dinner order. He cleared the appetizer plates saying “I’ll be right back”. That didn’t happen. After a half hour we asked for our check and left.

Food was great but we didn’t get a table until 15 minutes after our reservation time and service was extremely slow. We’ve been before and didn’t have this issue, so hoping it was an off night.

My girlfriend and I were simply getting out for a Friday evening meal and selected The Guild House. Upon arrival we first noticed the nice decor. The cocktail we ordered was great but the raw oysters and shrimp poblano dish was so so. Honestly there wasn’t too much to really select from on the menu so me made a reservation to hop over to a different restaurant, Hyde Park.

The Guild House is an amazing establishment. They have achieved something that is very unique, offering upscale and fine dining culinary creations, while still feeling approachable and unpretentious. The service was outstanding, our waiter was very attentive but other servers and support staff were equally impressive. This was truly a five star experience.

Our waiter was polite. Its kinda weird, because we had multiple servers. Our drinks came after the appetizers, which was a bummer, and the music was too loud to hear each other talk. Won't stop me from coming back, just some tweeks.

Service was good. The cocktails and entrees were delicious. However, do not order oysters here. I’m not sure what happened but they tasted like someone rinsed the inside of them out with tap water. (If you know about oysters, you know this is not what you should do. You shuck them and keep the brine inside) I’ll definitely visit again, but just no to the oysters. 🤷🏻‍♀️
