Lovely restaurant experience! Our dinners were excellent. Atmosphere was nice. The service was professional but rushed. Not sure why because our reservation was early and it was not crowded.
We will definitely try again.

It’s always excellent but last night our salad came out 5 min after ordering it and our main came out before we finished eating our salads. What’s the rush?????

Beet salad to start was great. Blueberries added a nice touch. Short rib dinner and sweet potato gnocchi with short ribs really hit the spot. Our waitress,Ashley, was beautifully attentive. As usual a nice experience at Theresa’s.

Food was delicious. We had a 5 pm reservation outside.

My complaint was that we were finished eating by 5:40 pm. We ordered the eggplant pancake, pasta and ravioli dishes and fried cheese cake for dessert with cappucino.

There was no time in between and we were rushed. Menu says 1 1/2 hours is alloted for table.

Not sure what the rush was- several tables were empty when we left.

Very good food and service, pleasant dining rooms, all around good experience. We had the eggplant pancake- special treat and quite delicious. We followed up with soft shell crabs and grouper. Both mains were excellent. A key lime pie was just the dessert we needed to close out the meal. We will return.

Food was excellent - our server Taylor, as always, was friendly and service was wonderful. My request for a certain area for seating and for our server was met!
Great feature about open table is a section to make requests for your preferences!

Went with wife and two older children for her birthday dinner. We felt like they were doing us a favor in serving us. Our waiter was ok but didn’t show any emotion or seemed like he cared. He leaned against the walk when taking our orders. Every time we asked for something we felt like we were bothering them. We asked for a second bottle of bottled water and when the server brought it to the table he practically threw it on the table unopened and we had to open it and serve ourselves. The food was okay but not worth what they are charging. We will not return.

The food and service was excellent. My wife and I like to split our courses. We generally order 1 appetizer or salad, a pasta dish, a main entree, and a desert. This gives us the opportunity to try multiple dishes and still have room for desert. Unlike some restaurants Theresa's South had no problem with us sharing each of our courses and they perfectly timed the delivery of each course to our table. For us this restaurant has become our special occasion restaurant. We have always had excellent food and the servers are very friendly and accommodating.

Food not what it used to be, quality has gone down. Don't know if it was different chef? We're long time customers and will go back for another try, however if we this was our first time dining at Theresas South it would have been our last time
