Wonderful service, delicious food, good service! Perfect spot for a casual dinner with family and friends. Additional points earned as the manager stopped by our table to introduce himself and inquire about our experience. Nicely done...

We went for the mussels...they were out of them when we got there which was a bummer but understandable.

The ricotta appetizer we ordered had a hair in it that came out with my first scoop. The waitress was very apologetic and brought it back asking if we wanted another. We did get another one and it was amazing.

The Turkey Bolognese was tasty. The meatballs were not horrible but not great either.

Overall, just an ok experience. Expected more from a WP establishment. And was a little disappointed that the manager did not offer the ricotta app free or given something for having a hair in the food.

We've eaten here a bunch of times and were disappointed in this evening's visit. The tables in the back of the restaurant were so bunched together it was very difficult to get in and out to use the restroom and to access our seats when arriving and leaving the restaurant. Our daughter's favorite entree had been taken off the menu (ravioli). I tried the new BBQ shrimp appetizer and wouldn't order again. The meatballs were underwhelming. The trout was not as good as usual. Two members of our party had the NC Apple salad and it was very good. Will probably give it another shot in the future, but won't be in any hurry.

There’s no such thing as a “bad meal” at WPK&B! This time we started with calamari. The three meals that followed were schnitzel, mushroom pizza, and the mussels with a side of Brussels sprouts. Absolutely delicious! Our server, Frank, was outstanding...very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu (he recommended the crave-worthy Brussels sprouts!). This restaurant is well managed and is a terrific venue for an enjoyable evening/delicious meal out with friends.

Love coming to WP - everything was great about the dinner except the cocktails, so we switched to the WP wine after the first round. Would recommend WP changing the cocktail menu or recipes! Apple salad and mushroom pizza were delicious.

The fact that a restaurant in this location was 50% empty at 8:00 pm on a Friday night is indicative of the quality of food served. Nothing was so terrible that we sent it back but, with the exception of our meatball appetizer, everything was bland and underwhelming. Service was attentive but slow. It’s a lovely space, but there are so many great options at this price point that we won’t be back.

My 15 year old son and I went for dinner and had a wonderful time. The service was very attentive and the food came out very quickly (but not rushed). I started with the Squash Soup and it was yummy. I've had this soup before elsewhere and my only criticism is that I've liked it a little better with roasted pepitos on top.

My son started with the Roasted Beet Salad which was delicious - and a very large portion.

Then we each had a special. I had the Duck. It was cooked perfectly. I felt that it had an over abundance of roasted carrots, and would have benefited with some potatoes as well, instead of just more carrots, but the flavors were yummy. My son had the Tuna Poke. It was meant to be an appetizer, but he had it for dinner. It was a little small for dinner, but he said it was delicious.

We shared the Lemon Cheesecake for dessert and thought it was terrific. All in all and really great night!

The restaurant is a modern mix of traditional materials. The focus of the restaurant is obviously the bar which you pass by on your way to the dining room. They valet your car (not required) and open the door on your way in. The food quality is very good and the mix of textures and taste you get will fill your pallet, but don’t expect to be full off of the pasta. Burgers, steaks and pizza look to be the best value for the amount of food for your money. Overall a great experience with friendly and attentive staff. I would recommend this for a first date or special occasion with friends.

Once again, I found myself having the same server as in the past. No personality, not very attentive and moderately knowledgeable. I had requested a booth in the front of the restaurant My table was not ready when I arrived and for some reason they would not seat me at either of the open booths adjacent. I had requested one of those so my husband could peek at the sports on the tv. They were having trouble with the remotes so he wasn’t able to catch his team anyway. Poached pear salad was delicious. Octopus app had too much sauce. My husband loved his apple salad.

WP was okay. We made reservations on the Restaurant Week website n it had a 3:45pm and 4pm reservation. We took the 3:45pm. When we were seated, I asked for the Restaurant Week menu. We were told that menu started at 5pm. I looked puzzled and the server went to check. She came back and said they decided to serve us the Restaurant Week menu. From our experience from the front of the restaurant to the seating area, it seemed cold, not welcoming. It seemed that staff was going about their tasks (calling reservations for confirmations, etc), and the people portion was not a priority. I noticed this with certain other customers as well. The food was okay as well.

I said that I would recommend a friend because I loved the mussels. But that's the only reason. I was extremely disappointed with my experience. First the waitress took our appetizer plates to only bring them back. Not sure if that is customary but was a waste of time. Then we sat there for an hour before anything came out (party of 6 including a 10yr old). At the hour mark we asked if they had any bread or something for us while we waited, that came about 8 minutes later... shortly following was the appetizers and then a few minutes later was the main course. It was TERRIBLE! I ordered pizza which is supposed to be one of their specialties (so did 2 other people) mine was burnt. The crust was literally black. They knew this, I would have just fired up another before bringing it to the table. They did make another one but that was under cooked. Everyone at the table was supplied with a refill except me for some reason. I was just simply annoyed at that point and was ready to leave. The manager was really nice about it and took care of everything and was shocked to find out that we had been sitting there for an hour waiting. Beautiful atmosphere, in a really great location, complimentary valet parking. But I don't know if I will return.

We went for restraurant week and had a good time. I ordered Weiner Shnitzel and was disappointed. It was heavily breaded and meat was very dry. (I have had this before at other places so I know what this is supposed to taste like) The potato salad was very good and so was the cucumber salad. Desert was excellent. My friends seem to like their entree so maybe I will try again and order something different.
