It was my birthday and they dropped the check without asking if I even wanted desert. They knew it was my birthday but rushed us through the dinner none the less and made no mention of it other than when they called to confirm my reservation that morning. Was made to feel like a burden.

The hostess was very rude. We got there early, so we sat at the bar. A purple hair black waitress was also very rude and told us we could not sit there. We left and came back 15 minutes late to give them time to set up. We sat at the bar and had amazing service from the beverage manager - Lindsey.

We have eaten here twice and had very good meals both times. This past Saturday the waiter was not ready to manage his own tables. He never introduced himself or discussed specials with us. Once the food came he never came back to check on things with us. I had to find him to get our check and a to go box. It was disappointing but will not keep us from returning. The Bartender was great and fun to order from. The food was exceptional.

Good food and enjoyable but none of the elements were very surprising or made us go, wow! Overall we found the appetizers more interesting and tastier than the entrees. Similarly some of their wines were excellent and well-priced. We would recommend checking those out (though with only 4 of us we didn't get to try many).
Server was good and speed was appropriate. It wasn't a busy night but, like most modern establishments there are a lot of hard surfaces, so it was still rather noisy.
Generally enjoyable place to go.

The food and service was absolutely outstanding. Do not sit outside, however, unless you want to hear 10 screaming kids batting ping pong balls around and blowing out table candles. The completely ruined a fine dining experience. What ever happened to responsible parents raising respectful and well behaved kids?

Coffee was luke warm, every time our cups were refilled. Our waiter was attentive at first, but he seemed to be too busy and forgot about us near the end of our meal. When crowded, the restaurant is very loud, making conversation a challenge. Food is good though.

We had a great experience at no. 246. Although we visited at 6:45 on "Prom" night, we still were sat quickly. We also had bread to snack on and our drinks were ordered immediately. Our server was very attentive and kept us updated on our dinner. He also brought us a complimentary and delicious meatball when he realized our food was taking longer than expected. All in all a wonderful experience. Thank you!

no. 246 is a special place for our family. One of my daughters was engaged there, and then had her wedding at the restaurant. It has been a go-to place for family gatherings and special occasions. Whether we go for brunch or dinner, the food is top notch and served by a very attentive and friendly waitstaff. The manager is the best, and we consider him a friend. He always checks on us and the other patrons, which we always appreciate. The atmosphere is wonderful - whether you dine inside or out - it is very nice but comfortable.

I like the food at no. 246, and sometimes the service is terrific, but once in a while we have a server who kind of treats us like we are stupid old people, which puts a dampener on the evening. I think we are relatively cool enough even though we are in our 50s. We typically order lots of food and multiple cocktails/wine. We never complain. We are pleasant. We tip 25% even if service could be better. But it's not the first time that we've felt a bit blown off. Also, I was asked if i wanted my martini dirty. I'd ordered a gin martini with a twist. Um, just no.

We fell in love with 246 on our first date in awhile. We wanted to go somewhere special and 246 delivered. First we enjoyed the olive and almond appetizer recommended by our server Katie Hahn. She described the menu with a grace and enthusiasm that made me want to try everything. Next we enjoyed the smoked mozzarella pasta, asparagus, and eggplant. We ate every last bite and topped it off with the rich chocolate gelato. Not only was the food and service spectacular, the space was clean and fresh, and vibrant with conversation and energy. We will definitely return.

The service wasn’t terrible, but it is definitely my least favorite of the Ford Fry restaurants. All of the dishes had an unappealing sourness to them, and in the two times I’ve visited, the only thing I liked was the meatballs.

The food was excellent. The pasta is home made and was cooked perfectly. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive.
I felt the price for a pizza was on the high side. I also thought the menu was a bit limiting. Was disappointed to not find a nice veal dish on the menu in an Italian restaurant. This accounts for the 1 star reduction.

Loved it! The chicken marsala for two was superb-very generous portion. My martini was delish, and the chocolate sorbet and chocolate cake were very, very good. Lighting, noise level, general vibe of the place were all spot on for me. My only complaint is that it took us so long to find this place, but that's on me, not on them!
