This was my first time at The Tuck Room and I didn't realize it wasn't a restaurant. It's basically "something to do" while you wait for your movie to start or end up here after the movie. It was more of a lounge/bar area rather than a restaurant. It was very open so you see patrons for the theater pass by. It's a neat concept but not when you're just wanting a dining experience. We just had drinks and left for a more defined dining experience.

I’ve been to the Tuck Room before, on a much busier night, and received better service.

Once seated, our waiter NEVER came to check on us unless we flagged him down.

Our drinks and food took so long to come that our waiter kept apologizing for the wait and kept having to go back to the bar and kitchen to check on our order; although we noticed other people around us received their orders before us even though they were seated after us.

Once we received the food, we had to quickly eat it because our movie had started.

Needless to say, we were not happy and our “dinner and a movie” experience could’ve been much better.

Made reservations for 8 and upon arrival, we were seated immediately but abruptly moved to a noisy spot right near the kitchen! They offered comps for the mix up in seating but clearly saw the displeasure on my wife's face. They immediately moved us to the bar/patio area which was the absolute best! Our waitress, Victoria, was OUTSTANDING!
Thank you to the manager and Victoria for making my bday very nice!

The service was very slow and disorganized. There were employees everywhere, and no one seemed to know what to do. The only exception - and I wish I had gotten his name - was the bus boy, who kept our water glasses full and chased down our waiter multiple times. We arrived an 1:15 hours before the movie, and we were still 20 minutes late to be movie.

The waitress was very good, appeared to be the only one on duty at 6:00pm. Ordered the wagyu burger and the margharita pizza from the happy hour menu. The burger was amazing. The margharita pizza was just a cheese pizza, no basil and no tomato. It was still good just not what you would expect when ordering a margharita pizza. Cocktails were very good, martini and margarita.

We had a salad with added skirt steak. The salad was acceptable but not special and exceedingly overpriced at $25 each. We had a bottle of very decent wine that was also exceedingly overpriced (under $25 at a store and $75 at the restaurant). We asked for bread and got a piece of white sliced bread (like mrs Baird) toasted on a panini maker so that it had stripes. A bottle of water for the table was $8, more than I have paid at a three-Michelin-Star restaurant in Manhattan, which is ridiculous. Overall a $200 meal for three very simple salads with some steak and a bottle of wine - we don’t mind expensive restaurants, but this is simply not acceptable value for a mediocre meal. Not worth the experience.
The ambiance was OK, but again not special. It is a restaurant attached to a movie theater, not what we expected. Very few people at 9:00 pm on s Friday — which is not a good sign.

Was served cold coffee. I asked for hot coffee and was given another cup of cold, room temperature coffee. Food arrived an hour after ordering, was incorrect and inedible. We boxed it up only because of the price and gave it to our dog. We ended up going to IHOP just to eat something before our movie. Truly one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had.

Poor experience, we ordered a drink and took 25 minutes for the server to come back. He came back without the drinks to take our order and then pretended that he had sent the drinks to the bar. We decided to leave after wasting 30 mins here.

Food was average bar food with not much selection. We were seated right by the bar where the wait staff congregated to socialize loudly. It was FAR too expensive for such a cheap experience.

I was let down significantly. If it werent for iPic we wouldn't have gone. But this time was exceptionally poor. The venue would be perfect for a small jazz trio or quartet, but there was no band there. The food was also poor. The skirt steak was tough and charred with no seasoning. The shrimp tacos were also poorly seasoned and small. Service was okay except i didnt receive a steak knife and had to use a BUTTER KNIFE for the steak. On the plus side, the waiter did honor my request for one of the tvs to be switched to espn so i could watch an nba game. My wife and i will come back for drinks at the bar as we wait to be seated for our movie, but we will not be dining here again.

We get seated and there is a hair on our plate that was an immediate turn off gross! We then ordered drinks and it took 15 min to get our drinks. What was upsetting is there were workers in the bar just standing around. I ordered a margarita with salt on rim but it was not on the rim it was I’ll over the side of the glass. The waitress saw it and the way she addressed it was to turn the glass around so it was not facing me. Also ordered food and it was suppose to come with soy sauce but we had to ask for it. Not impressed will not be back.

We’ve been coming here since it opened and it’s been going downhill for a while. The service is not up to par and the kitchen is consistently out of some item on the menu. The bartenders are generally friendly and knowledgeable but I’ve been there on two occasions when they can’t serve my drink in the proper glass because they’ve run out. I think Sherry Yard needs to get this location in shape!

Visited during HRW. Menu options on paper were good and price for portion received was good. Food was decent, some items needed more flavor. Lots of sauces that accompanied dishes that were flavorful. Cocktail prices were decent but soft drink and lemonade was too expensive at $6.

Service at the bar was very slow, waited 20 min before I could order and it wasn’t busy.
The buttery chicken strips were under cooked and had no flavor at all.

We arrived at 930pm for 1045pm show. We ended up leaving early. Pushing the button to request the waiter to return was inevitable. She didn’t come back at all.

Was the food here really a James Beard selection? Hard to believe. Really horrible--except the buttermilk fried chicken appetizer.

Cocktails just sweet--poor execution--horrible considering they tout themselves as a craft cocktail hot spot.

Service was sloooooooowwwww. Place was empty but service still horrible.

Don't pay the high $$ for this place.

Not worth even a visit.

We were seated very quickly based on our reservation. Our waitress was super friendly, but didn’t seem to be knowledgeable about the special Father’s Day menu. Our initial round of drinks came in a decent amount of time, but subsequent orders were slow or we had to remind her and ask where the drink was. The restaurant was not at all crowded, but we soon realized that all of the busy traffic of the servers at the bar and kitchen was for the folks ordering food from inside iPic. It seemed that the orders for patrons of the Tuck Room were handled as a lower priority. It could have been what we were ordering that took longer, but I found myself looking for the waitress for plates and silverware and even to pay the bill. Overall it’s a nice experience especially if you want a quick bite and drink before a movie. I’ve been before and had a better time, but will definitely go again.

Tuck Room took a dinner reservation and then sat me at the equivalent of a coffee table. Food wasn’t off the charts but was good. Service was extremely slow and not in a “take time to savor” way. More in a “Oh we forgot you were here at this coffee table” way
