The staff was extremely gracious and flexible. My reservation swelled from one to three then to five, after I had already been seated, and the management and wait staff were very accommodating and professional. The food was terrific and well presented. A very enjoyable experience for sure.

Everything was amazing, the service and food were exceptional.
The only negative and it’s a small negative was we did not really like our table, it was a very tiny table and cramped for us
But other than that the whole experience was a 10

I would trust the chef here enough to eat anything they put on the menu. The pairings are outstanding! Don’t question it, just go with it and get a bite of everything that “goes together” and you will get an amazing surprise. The ultimate dining experience!

We have dined with the staff at Wildflowers before and have always had an excellent experience. Unfortunately this last experience was not as wonderful as in the past. The food was excellent as usual however the service, although very friendly was extremely slow. We sat at our table for an hour with just water even though we placed drink orders and appetizers. We finally had to go find the manager and say something in order to get some movement on our order. Every aspect of our dinner throughout the evening was the same resulting in being at Wildflowers for just over 4 hours! We even had to get up and go find someone to give us our bill so we could leave. We watched all evening as other patrons came and went, Receiving their orders quickly and on time. We were a party of 4 so it should not have been an issue. We like this restaurant but this experience was way less then satisfactory.

Service was very slow - took about 25 minutes just to get a glass of water. I know they were short staffed and new people were working so we were patient. Food was excellent as usual.

Excellent food and service as usual. Celebrating my sisters birthday. She loved the Croque Madame. The smoked salmon is excellent and highly recommend the corned beef hash. Best hash I’ve ever had.

Everyone from the time we walked up to hostess area and during our dining experience including our server and Todd the manager was exceptional! I wish I remembered their names and I wish we lived closer ( we live in Boston area) because Wildflowers was such an incredible experience we’d love to include it in our rotation at least 3x monthly! Absolute perfection. Todd even tried to squeeze us in on Saturday night unfortunately the time didn’t work… but he went above and beyond!

This was our 2nd palates and pairings (we had July’s offering and now September). Both were wonderful but we especially enjoyed the September experience! The portions were perfect and each course was absolutely delicious! Emily was great and offered some fantastic suggestions on the wines with each course! We loved it and can’t wait to see what next month’s experience offers!

Our expectations were exceeded. We had our table for 3 hours. The service was excellent, with short breaks between each course so that we could digest and talk. The blending of spices and presentation of each dish were the best I've ever seen and tasted. From the lighted cucumber slice in our cocktail straight through to the blend of alcohol in our after dinner coffee, the tastes were something to be savored. The duck confit salad was served in a crescent shape on a large plate, giving us plenty of room to cut the duck pieces into smaller sizes if we wanted. The scallops were served on a bed of creamed spinach with a strip of lardo over each. I was so impressed with the preparation of each course - each so different from what I've had at so many other restaurants. My husband and I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We have been to Wildflowers on several occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant, so I'm not sure what happened last night. It seemed there were only 2 waitstaff in the entire restaurant. Our waiter was rushing around and was obviously very stressed. It was hard to order our food or receive refills on our drinks. I was not given a refill for my drink when my food came, my husband's steak was rock hard and over cooked, and our waiter never came back to check if we needed anything else. We had to ask several times for the check and were not offered dessert nor given the customary chocolates upon paying. A big disappoint considering the amount of our bill. If I had not been to this restaurant before, I would not return. Hopefully it was just an off night.

Not an enjoyable experience for our 49th anniversary. Expected to be treated a little bit special. Asked about seating in booths and was told it was on a reserved basis. Was totally surprised to see two men seated together in a booth. No mention of our anniversary was mentioned. They knew well ahead of time that were were celebrating a special anniversary but yet nothing was even said until I said something to the waitress. Having dined at many restaurants on my anniversary we were always
given a cake, flowers or a special desert. When we ordered a desert they put an anniversary banner on it which we paid 12 dollars for. The very least is it could have been complimentary. The food at best was mediocre. My steak was tough at 62.00 and my husband duck was not very appetizing. No additions accompanied it.

While the food was great and the ambiance was fine, it was our server Paul that really just made our evening. He wasn’t stuffy or short, he was friendly and personable. He answered all my ridiculous questions including questions about other restaurants within the casino. The serving of the bread was a bit stingy as only 1 roll per person was provided. The palate cleanser of cucumber and lime was interesting. The filet was perfection however was not a fan of the butter. I just wanted a standard garlic herb butter but instead got a lump of what looked and tasted like butter with seaweed. Creme brulee was heavenly

Why do they ask if it is special occasion and then do not offer a dessert or chocolate at the end. P

Had to wait a long time for server to approach us.

Dirty dishes were all left until the end. Not the usual Wildflower experience.

Food was excellent, a great brunch. Service was slow, and was denied adding 2 people to our reservation - was told it would be an additional 2 hour wait for extra guests. Meanwhile completed our entire meal and the front dining area that we sat in was completely empty aside from our party of 2 and one other couple.

One of the best meals I have ever had.
Had the Chilean sea bass with celery compote with a delicate but very tasty sauce and green bean and pearl onions. I complimented the chef. Every thing was great.
