Delicious salmon And fried chicken. However when a waitress comes to welcome you and take your drink order, she should go directly to the bar and return to the table with the drinks, not 15 minutes later. We placed our dinner order before we got our drinks. Pet peeve of mine. Then there is a lot of shenanigans moving the plates and bringing different silverware...just seems a bit contrived...
Service was excellent, nice beers, food just ok. Biggest issue: the uncomfortably cold temperature of the restaurant. Server said it's an old bldg + a cold night, and that's just what happens. She brought hot water/lemon. Nearly everyone was wearing their coat/jacket/scarves. Disappointing as we were expecting "cozy night out". As with a reviewer below, we were also given the wrong "leftovers" bag at the hostess stand on our way out. Clearly, that system needs refinement...diners should feel confident they aren't taking home food from another's plate.
A good selection of American food with good size portion to share.
A good wine list local Ca. Selection.
Our waiter was one of the best waiters we've ever had. Service was excellent. The restaurant setting was unique in that it has 4 floors and all different. There's something for every palette on the menu. It's American style food which is rich and heavy with several traditional dishes. The noise level was acceptable. They have several separate dining rooms for large groups.
As good as it gets
I liked the food but my Petrale Sole was n oily and tasteless. Also the waiter was not attentive at all. He also lied about the where our Oysters came from. We wanted Big ones from the East Coast and he insisted that the Small ones were from the East Coast. It was really annoying. We weren't going to argue about it, but it was not professional. I would recommend this place but the service needs improvement.
The fried chicken did not disappoint! It was amazing. My cocktail was pretty perfect and the staff was great.
Generous portions of delicious food! Great service.
Underwhelming and disappointing meal. I expected better from a Michael Bauer top 100 restaurant. Restaurant does have great atmosphere and service. The meal started well with the popovers and salad and went down from there. The signature fried chicken was very ordinary-not crispy or especially flavorful. Have had much better elsewhere. Steak, for $42, was also very ordinary and not a great cut. Meal for 2 with a cocktail, 2 glasses of wine, no desert and tip came to $200. Had a much better meal for lunch that day for $66 with a cocktail, draft beer, desert and tip.
The waitress had difficulty putting thru the OpenTable $25 rewards cert. She actually had to hurry after us before we got out the door to let us know she couldn't process. (The balance was paid in cash.) We had to wait in order for her to get the restaurant manager to handle. Fortunately, he was able to process. This spoiled an otherwise nice first visit to Wayfare.
