Great lunch! Love the outside seating!
They've reduced their vegetarian option.
Great service and food. Love the outdoor patio for happy hour.
We arrived and were seated quickly on the new covered patio for a business lunch. Service was great. The food was outstanding. Love Thirsty Lion. Lots of great tasting meal choices and beverages.
Disappointed in quality of food. Just ok
The food was good, however we would have preferred to receive our appetizers prior to the whole meal as they were ordered. We waited 40 minutes for food after we ordered
Great restaurant. Love the low lighting. Makes it special and more upscale. Service and food very good.
I have been going to Thirsty Lion for years. I have never had a bad experience, nor food that I had to send back. It is my favorite restaurant and they continue to amaze me with their seasonal menu.
Excellent service and great food.
We have been coming here since it first opened. We still enjoy it quite a bit, but some of the quality at this location is starting to slip. The California roll used to be an appetizer we'd get regularly, but the last two times I was not impressed.
We had such a great experience here! The Staff were great, the service prompt and the food so delish! We came back after running errands at Washington Square Mall for drinks, for a second round...and it was just the same great experience!
As always solid food and beverages. Our waitress was new but did a great job. Local to us so we will be back
The highlight of our brunch (other than the DELICIOUS mimosas) was the service/attitude they gave my friends meal. She suffers from a very serious allergy and the manager watched her food as it was made and brought it to the table. It was wonderful to find a place that she could comfortably and safely eat without fear of a reaction.
We waited over 30 minutes for drinks, and the waitress never came back to take our food order. Finally we flagged a nice guy down who apologized and said Hannah was our server. She finally came back over and said she thought we were waiting on another person and that’s why she didn’t take out order. Really? So if we hadn’t of flagged down the other guy we’d still be waiting to order? She could have come back and checked on us to see if we needed anything else. We finally got to order our food 45 minutes after we sat down. So we were starving! When the food did finally come, my fries Rock hard and cold, and they forgot to put the sauce on my friends salmon. Another waiter, not ours, caught the mistake and had someone fix her meal. The entire night was an absolute mess from the beginning... then, Hannah, our not so attentive waiter brings over the new credit card machines for us to pay for our meal. I was surprised when I saw my Bill was over $70 and was like, what the heck did I order? To which Hannah replied well you did have 3 drinks that are like $10 a piece, do you want to see the rest? When I looked at “the rest” what I saw was that my meal/drinks was actually around $50-55 but Hannah, or somebody had already chosen the highest tip box making my total, with tip, almost $70! Unbelievable! The service was sub par and the food was cold, there was no way I was tipping 20-25%, i was gonna tip, cause that’s the right thing to do, but DO NOT CHOOSE FOR ME! Especially when it wasn’t that great of experience.
I really love the new outdoor patio seating! It's the best area in the house. Good for a business meeting or a family dinner! On the top of my list of local restaurants near Washington Square!
Waiter was awesome!
Great new outside sitting!
Wonderful food and service as always. Outdoor seating rocks and is good year round with heaters speakers etc in place!! Happy hour is wonderful!!
When it first opened we went a lot. But the last 4 to 5 times we have gone we have been very disappointed. Will have trouble going back or recommending friends.
Always a great place to eat and drink. Love the seasonal options and social hour
Never disappointed with food and service. Always recommend to others.
Our table was ready when we arrived, our hostess and server were both friendly and helpful. The food came quickly, but didn't make us feel rushed, and everything was delicious.
Great meal! Love the new patio it’s really nice! The music could be turned down and the volume more subtle as it’s nice to have conversation with friends and family.
My husband and I just moved to town and wanted to find the perfect place for date night but also kid friendly. This was perfect. The food, service and atmosphere could not have been better.
First time going and loved everything about it! Food, all 5 LOVED their meals. Service, we arrived early with an extra person and they said no problem we can take care of you. Our server Steven, fabulous! You can tell he likes was he does and he’s really good at it. Our drinks, on point and not overly priced. Next time we visit the Portland area we will go out of our way to eat dinner there!
Wonderful dining experience for a business meal! Upon entering the establishment, our group of seven was greeted by two incredibly stunning hostesses, who kindly welcomed us and provided pleasant conversation while escorting us immediately to our reserved table. Our waitress was at our table in seconds for our first round of drinks and suggest a few starters to compliment our libations. I appreciate that our waitress did not rush us as we took a bit of time perusing the menu while discussing matters pertaining to our gathering. We selected a range of menu items and none were disappointed. Drinks continued as our waitress stealthily observed and offered to replenish when a member of our group had a glass that was nearing completion. While we were pleasantly full, desert and coffee made for a nice finish. Thank you; I'll certainly be returning!
We were there for happy hour which was great! The food is always great and they pour a nice vodka/cran!
We enjoy coming to the TL. The place is busy most of the time, but worth it if you can get in without waiting long. Service is good, good menu selection and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is nice and the service is good.
Not fond of the 2% service charge, but overall a good experience.
Overall my experience was great. Bar staff were very late getting deinks out.
Always love going here. It is our "go to" place. Steven, and all of the Servers always give us attentive, gracious service and are very knowledgeable. Kirsten, the GM, is an amazing person who never seems to slow down but is always on point when it comes to Service
On this visit food and service were very good. Southwest salad and poke bowl came quickly and all was good. Server engaged very shortly after being seated and took our orders
Never a bad experience here.
Great time and great food and drinks
Food was excellent. Service was great and friendly. Music was too loud making conversation difficult. We realized that everyone in the room was yelling.
Was seated fairly quick and drink orders were taken immediately after. I really enjoyed the flavor of the spicy crispy chicken sandwich(able to sample from my sis order). For myself I ordered the smoked turkey BLT sandwich, and the "extra crispy no salt" fries that I ordered.
I'll be returning for a whole spicy crispy chicken sandwich soon!
We had a reservation at 5:30 for 4 people but arrived early an hour early with 7 on fathers day. I asked the hostess( I didn't get her name) if she could accommodate the sudden change. She didn't even bat an eye and said "let me see what I can do". She moved a party of people that had already sat down to the outside seating(which is really where the wanted to be seated) and maybe five minutes later we were seated. The food was really good, but nothing extra ordinary. Our waitress was the best. I was really busy but we never lacked for anything. She was so good to my grandkids. The beer was nice and cold and the margaritas were good. Like I said the food was good, but would go back for the excellent service.
Still waited even with reservation, was told would be another 20 minutes for the table we reserved, so took a high one with the kids instead. Food and service are always pretty good.
This was my first time at Thirsty Lion for brunch. The menu was great, lots of options for whatever your preferred brunch looks like. My omelette was excellent. The only complaint from among the six of us was that the maple bacon was too maple-y. Service was a little slow, but it was Father's Day. Water pitchers were on the table but we had to ask for glasses and waited quite a long time for them. The new patio looks great and the woven stools were more comfortable than they looked.
Love Thirsty Lion especially the Sunday Brunch addition! Our go to place!
