The server never came back to our table to take lunch meal orders. I had to seek a staff member and ask that our server come over and take orders.

Overwhelmingly noisy, not due to the patrons but the hired entertainment (2 guys with guitars) who had speakers on blast. Host seated the two of us at a round table for 4+ and very close to the music. Seems Pub was understaffed; surprising as a major band was scheduled at the concert hall. Despite our server's sweet, apologetic demeanor, she was struggling to manage many tables of large groups. Her visits to us were delayed and infrequent. First visit: switched to a table farther from speakers. Second: ordered our drinks and food at once. Third: got the check. Manager did arrive to help eventually, delivering our meal. Menu had very few "lighter" option, but my salad and husbands chili were substantial and tasty.

It’s the Westin’s restaurant so prices are high. I was impressed with how good the food on the breakfast buffet was. Service was okay, food ordered from the menu took a while and I felt like our server was standoffish.

It took 20 minutes to get our drinks. The food was just embarrassing. It looked good eating it left me with a frustration that I can't put into words. My beers were served in plastic cups and the bill was roughly $90 for two people. I'll never be back.

Terrible service. We had a 6:15 reservation that I had made three months prior. We had ordered two appetizers thinking that would be quicker. Nope. Had to leave at 7:30 without eating, to make our concert. Never again. Food is not good enough for that hassle.

Four of us were going to Jerry Seinfeld. We alerted our server at the beginning we needed to leave by 6:45. We did not get our food until 6:35 at which point we boxed everything up and took it with us. The food tasted great at the BJCC, but we would have rather eaten it at the table with our drinks. We would recommend this restaurant only if you have plenty of time to eat.

Our waiter was doing the best he could, but the kitchen was running super slow. The restaurant was half empty, and our food took a really long time. They forgot our oysters, so we cancelled them. Three dishes came out at the same time, and then it was another 5-10 minutes for the fourth to arrive. We barely made it to our show at the BJCC despite booking a dinner reservation with plenty of time. I guess the restaurant mostly caters to one time diners and other people visiting, and maybe that is why they don't care about overall service. I will not go back.

Food was good. Service was really, really bad. We arrived at 4:45 because we had a concert to go to at 7. We thought that was plenty of time to eat dinner, have a couple of drinks and leave by 6:30. Definitely not the case. Our server forgot to put our food order in and didn’t remember until 30 minutes later (I know bc he came and re took our order). When we finally got the check after asking 3 times, it was completely wrong. We were so late leaving that we completely missed the opening act. Again, the food was really good, but it was a pretty awful experience. Everything took SO long- drinks and food.

Strike one: I requested a reservation noon or early afternoon but the only times "available" were 10 or 10:30. We saw numerous empty tables at noon when we left. Strike two: the food took forever to be served and it was cold (scrambled eggs and pancakes) but considering they were very simple breakfast items, inexcusable. We did not send them back for fear it would take another 30 minutes to get them. Strike three: The manager came by to ask how everything was and when we just nodded, he briskly walked away. Did not engage in conversation or really seem to be interested. The only reason we went there for Mother's Day was the location and availability. We'd been there for Christmas day lunch and were satisfied.

We have eaten at Todd English several times but would say NYE was not the best experience. Our waitress seemed frantic despite at 630 not people were there. We ordered drinks which took forever, when we ordered a second round it took even longer and they were out of the beer my son had ordered. The food was just okay this time but everything seemed like they were not prepared for the night.

Walked in on Christmas night, the place was 25% full. Hostess asked us if we had a reservation, we did not, so she told us they were booked for the night and did not accept walk-ups and turned us away. I immediately opened the open table app to see if I could get a reservation later and booked a reservation for the current time. Told the hostess such and she told us she would seat us right away. We were served water immediately upon being seated. It took 15 minutes for a waitress to come take our drink order, and another 15 minutes to order our food. Service was extremely slow and the food was not very good.

We went for Christmas dinner since unfortunately we were traveling for work. We thought we were making the best of it as the website lauded the restaurants as being James Beard winners. Service was mediocre and our food came out at all different times. Sides were served before entrees arrived and all 4 of our entrees were served at different times. The food was decent, but the experience as a whole did not meet my expectactions for the price point.

First Timer!
-Popcorn was a different expectation; nice (considering it's one of my favorite snacks)
-Margaritas were GREAT!
-Fried pickles were good, the sauces were okay, requested different sauces (outside of what was provided with appetizer)
-Fish tacos were really good; corn salad was okay
-Our server - Devonte - was GREAT, highly recommend! As a first timer, I asked several questions, he responded to all, checked on our group regularly (allowed us to change our inside seating area - to outside (live music inside was a little loud)
-I will be returning for another visit

We never actually got food at the restaurant. We left after waiting over an hour and after paying for our drinks. The manager gave us his card so we could "call him next time we wanted to come". Um, not sure why? So he can start cooking out food then? The waitress wasn't bad and warned us when we sat down to go ahead and order as the kitchen was "running behind". Horrible experience. Now I see why it's rated so badly!
