The grilled cheese from the children's menu is made of way too thick of a bread slice and the cheese was not melted at all. The soup was great. The cobb salad was also wonderful. The calamari was a bit disappointing since they seem to fluff it with fried artichokes so it was a lot less calamari. It also tasted very floury. The fish and chips is tasty but beware the chips are actual chips not fries. The coleslaw was very vinegary and inedible. The burger was great and so was the wine.
Extremely disappointed. Ordered crab cakes Benedict and the cakes were cold! Hollandaise sauce was awful. Service was inattentive and the bar tending either understaffed or inexperienced. It took forever for my drink to arrive Management needs to review their staffing and customer service in addition to what is happening in the kitchen
Loved the brunch and the customizable bloody mary option. Food was excellent. Service...meh. A little slow....I think they may not properly staff for Sunday brunch. We had to ask twice for my husband's beer; one item we ordered never made it to the table, but did make it onto the bill. They took it off, but still....
Anyway, it's a place I've been many times and will go back many more.
It was great, we had the table right by the front and since it was too cold outside it was perfect. There was plenty of natural lighting and the table fit six people. Food was great and drinks were great! A good Sunday for us girls to catch up. We got seated pretty quickly and everyone was so patient.
Sat us immediately, very prompt service. Food was excellent, wine selection was top notch.
Such potential, so many disappointments! Server quite friendly, but rarely seen. Coffee long past its prime, food delivered almost cold-but hard to rectify as server didn't come back for 15 minutes. Had it been hot it would have been very good.
We were there for late dinner on February 14 - so appreciated the heavy drapes and outdoor heaters. It was very comfortable - and quieter than the inside! The food was excellent and service very good.
Greeted and quickly seated. Nice wine selection and food choices looked great. Our selections were delicious.
Highly recommended especially for a special dinner occasion.
This was our first visit to the restaurant. The food was fine — nothing stellar, but tasty and what I expected. The issue was with the service. We were enjoying a cocktail and appetizer when our wine came out and, quickly after, our dinner. Surely they know to wait until we have finished with the drink and appetizer first? I felt rushed throughout because of that. I'm not sure if we'll return. I might be willing to give them a second chance, but I really think the service should be better.
