Well, it's mothers day..just left and paid 100.00 for the worst food/service in my life. We sat and sat and sat for over an hour before any food was brought to us (a family of 4) super cold bbq, don't even know how that is even possible..i ordered a salmon filet for 35.00 , it came out cold, after an hour .and when I sunk my fork in..it was like jelly it was so raw!!! I sent it back and the server agreed it was bad...he then came out to tell me that the "chef" said "that's the way it is suppose to be cooked and served...i didn't order my salmon well done" hahahaha it's either cooked...or raw!! It IS NOT SUPPOSE TO BE RAW...it isn't a sushi bar. Then the manager said the same thing. She said she even had "well done" salmon earlier this morning. The bbq sauce on the table, was watered down ketchup...horrible!! The service was so bad. Every table there was say g things and waiting for terrible food. It was like cinco De mayo party in the kitchen and they do not have (chefs) they have low grade food truck cooks. Will never eat here again or refer this place to anyone!!!! Everyone here needs a little Gordon Ramsey in their face, complete joke for outrageous priced, gross food.

I made reservations for 1230 for Mother's Day. We were not seated until 45 min later. I understand it was busy considering it was a holiday. We had a group of 8, unfortunately order was not taken for one of the guests. We let it slide. Waiter spilled water on my son and never replaced his utensils. We let it slide. Appetizers/main entre were served late and at different times. We let slide.

For the price we paid for mediocre food, we will not be coming back.

Joined friends in a pop-up dining experience serving Lebanese food enhanced by a belly dancer and a group of kids following her around the restaurant. Just priceless!. A fun night for all whether they chose the regular or special menu.

The Q has been our neighborhood restaurant since it opened. It has gone through changes, some better than others. Bringing Kelly back is a great one...hopefully food and all will rise with her...her presences already discernible

Met a friend for lunch at the Q a few days ago. We both ordered the Cobb Salad, which is my favorite. It was fantastic...the tomatoes were fresh and tasty, as was the avocado, the peppers, lettuce, the grilled chicken fresh and warm and the bacon crisp and tasty.

The servers at the Q are always attentive and the food enjoyable. The previous week I came in on a Tuesday when you can get a rack of ribs at a special lower rate...they were meaty and flavorful. I really appreciate the attention the kitchen is paying to the quality of the meats and produce, it makes such a difference.

We visited this restaurant on Easter and booked a reservation online because it said they would be open until 4pm. Received a call from the restaurant on Saturday asking us to move our reservation up because they actually were closing at 2pm. No issue there & we appreciated the call. Food was good and just what we were looking for mid-day. Great cocktail menu, I had a coconut rum/water concoction that was super refreshing and the boys loved their Arnold Palmers. Felt a bit rushed since they were closing early but the staff was all smiles and treated us well. The patio was great, just took some shuffling the tables/umbrellas to get shaded properly on a very sunny warm day. Overall a good experience. I think next time we just look forward to an opportunity for a more leisurely lunch, more cocktails and definitely order the grilled artichoke again!

Great menu - food was perfect. Awesome wines by the glass & excellent service. I prefer outdoors over indoors. The inside dining area feels a little too “lunchroom cafeteria” making it a better choice for early dining, but considering the location, it’s a perfect stop during your mid-whatever shopping trip.

This was a special menu/occasion to usher in Marti Gras (and Lent): a Fat Tuesday Cajun/creole menu that was really fun; you could also choose from the regular offerings as well along with specialty cocktails and music. Although very enjoyable and tasty, the music was way too loud so we couldn't have a dinner conversation. Outdoor dining may have been a better option that evening. My daughter used to work in the Napa Valley restaurant scene and she mentioned that sometimes the music is really for the staff and not the patrons. Diners like to talk while the workers need to be jazzed up and on their toes. She always recommended asking that the taped music be turned down.

Consistently tasty meals here. Lots of locals eat here and that’s not because they don’t have many other nearby dining options. The vibe is always relaxed and pleasant.

The waitress and busboy were neither friendly nor efficient. The food had very little flavor. The ambiance in the restaurant is lacking at best. It met what should have been my expectations for a restaurant in the corner of a grocery store shopping center.

We go often, but, today wasn't as good as usual. The staff could definitely be a little friendler. Ordered the fried chicken (4 pcs) and it was...ok. The collard greens were a little lackluster compared to the other times I've had them. However, the Key Lime Pie is to die for! A definite "must have". I hope everyone is a little more friendly next time. It makes a huge difference.

The food was well prepared if a bit boring. Besides that, the owner, to quote the serving staff, "likes his [very loud] music." They were unable to turn the Sunday afternoon tunes to anything below a deafening bellow. This is a shopping center eatery next to a whole foods, with airs of a trendy urban something or other. Not going back.

The meat (chicken, brisket beef, ribs, shredded pork, and sausage) was all terribly overcooked and dry. The sauces were watery and lacking flavor. The brussel sprouts were good but not great (once again, a bit overcooked). The coleslaw was the best.

We asked to have the music turn down just a touch so we could hear each other at the table, which they did, but within 30 minutes, the volume was cranked back up.

The service was attentive, but they forgot to bring wine glasses to the table and were slow to clear our cocktail glasses leaving the table unusually cluttered.
