The Point at Glenwood Ratings and Reviews
Met friends for dinner. Crab dip was yummy. The salmon and crab cakes were delicious. Finished the night enjoying the pumpkin cheesecake and bourbon pecan pie. Bothe scrumptious. It was our waitresses first night and she did a fabulous job. Look forward to returning.
Took a group of 9 to the Point on 11/5. included my two sisters and their spouses who had never dined there before. Everyone was amazed at the expansive menu and all were pleased with the food selection. Great place to go and be sure there is something to suit everyone's taste. Great service, food was delivered as soon as it done in the kitchen. No matter what I order I always get the side spinach salad with the warm bacon dressing...yum.
The Point is one of my favorite restaurants in Raleigh. Am SO blessed, as I live in the neighborhood; your restaurant is as conveniently located as imaginable and a very
special place for me to visit. It is so friendly; love the ambiance, which has such a cozy
vibe; and the outdoor seating is marvelous, too.
One of my favorite 'outings' is to dine at your restaurant, enjoy the upbeat atmosphere and thereafter see a film at The Rialto. Pretty neat, if you ask me.
You also have a wonderful, diverse menu from which I can easily select a meal and maintain
my weight loss regimen as well. The food is always excellent and the service is superb. Your
restaurant is such a fun place to dine. So grateful for your presence in my life. Thank you, thank
you, thank you.
I was pleasantly surprised. You would be hard pressed to find something that you didn't like on the menu. It offers absolutely every type of food you can think of except asian food (maybe it does and I didn't notice). Even homemade Chicken Pot pie! Tasty and delicious with large servings. I normally don't write reviews because there's rarely anything special to write but I would definitely go back. I don't think I would ever be disappointed. And I'm picky!
On a Tuesday evening, we decided to try a casual restaurant in a trendy location where we had visited another bistro nearby . Although the mahi-mahi, fish and chips, hush puppies and cocktails were very good, we were disappointed that the surroundings did not justify the prices nor did the splashy add in a popular local magazine reflect what we found.
Took a couple we dine out with every month or so to the Point on 7/29. Other couple had not been there before. Everyone got something different and all really enjoyed it. Spinach salad with bacon dressing was outstanding as was the desserts. With a large menu to cater to all taste and consistently good service the Point is a good choice to satisfy a group. Good quality and plentiful portions.
We were excited to finally try out The Point but came away very disappointed. The menu is very expansive and they had lots to choose from. One thing that caught my eye was the Reuben sandwich. The menu said this about the sandwich " Piles of corned beef, Jarlsberg swiss cheese, saur kraut, and thousand island dressing on artisan rye bread, cooked to gooey perfection in our wood-fired oven. (No sides with this monster except a pickle.)". Sounds good for $13 with no sides it should be a 'monster'. What came was literally four thin slices of corned beef that didn't even fill the large piece of rye bread, a few tablespoons of sauerkraut, and all on rye bread that had one side close to burnt while the other side had no toasting at all. FAR from a monster 'cooked to gooey perfection'. I called over the waiter and asked if this scrawny sandwich usually looks this way and his reply was 'yep, that's how it comes'. I had a Reuben just three days earlier at a local sandwich shop that included a side, TWICE the meat, and properly toasted for $8.95. The rest of our party had food that was mediocre at best. Salads with fish and chicken and a cheese steak that was TWICE as big as my 'monster' AND had a side of fries. He said it was average, maybe a little below. We only had our waters filled up once while we there and no iced tea refills were offered. Overall the place seemed like it could be a good place, but a menu that is clearly not focused, cooks that need to be trained, and service that is VERY sub-par, I will take my food dollars to many other places in Raleigh. Overall, this is NOT A RECOMMENDATION to go here.
The four of us go out monthly to a new restaurant. We ALL agreed The Point will have to have a return visit. Food and service were wonderful. Our waitress was very nice with a big smile. We each saw several menu options that we wanted to try. We will return for sure.
We went for Mother's Day Brunch, and were exceedingly pleased with the food options.
- biscuits & gravy
There was a carving station, a Belgian waffle station, and an omelet station. My mother-in-law had the Belgian waffle, and she said it was quite good.
We'll definitely go back for a Sunday brunch.
I updated this review to thank the management at The Point for responding to a bad experience we had in the restaurant while attempting to dine in the bar area. The management was very apologetic, understanding, and even comp'ed our group a second free meal to make up for an off night by their bartender. We were impressed on our follow-up visit with the service in the regular dining area, and have never had any issues with the good food and pizzas in this restaurant. So thanks again to the management for addressing the issue we had. We look forward to future visits.
Excellent food and service. The ambience is great as well. Many choices on the menu also has a wood oven for pizzas. Lobster bisque was delicious and the calamari is the best I've had in a long time - so light. Salads are huge. Would choose The Pointe at any time to eat. Sunday Brunch is great as well.
