    Amazing as always. Waiter was very nice (he took care of us on Mother’s Day too, I feel bad I can’t remember his name).

    Very noisy. Food was just okay. Spare ribs had way too much sauce and were a bit too sweet. Fortunately the service was very good.

    It took a while to receive our dinner. When it finally arrived the food was lukewarm. As a result we did not enjoy it. Sending it back after a long wait was not an option. The noise level was rather high. Interestingly, the noise level lowered when the light were dimmed!
    Bennett's American CookingResponded 7 days ago
    Hello Carmen, We apologize for the delay in receiving your dinner and for the lukewarm food you experienced during your visit. Providing prompt service and ensuring that our guests receive their meals at the optimal temperature are top priorities for us, and we regret that we fell short of your expectations on this occasion. We appreciate your feedback and will address this issue with our team to prevent similar situations in the future. Additionally, we're sorry to hear about the noise level during your visit. We'll take your observation about the dimming lights into consideration as we strive to create a more comfortable dining environment for our guests. Thank you for bringing these concerns to our attention, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and provide a better experience.

    Waited 30 mins at the table before being acknowledged. Wait so long brunch was over even though we had brunch menus. Server had to get authorization to serve us brunch. Confusion with appetizer and drinks. Not the usual “ experience “ disappointing for Mother’s Day brunch
    Bennett's American CookingResponded 7 days ago
    We're truly sorry for the disappointing experience you had during your Mother's Day brunch. It's unacceptable that you had to wait 30 minutes at your table before being acknowledged, especially on such a special occasion. We deeply regret that the delay caused you to miss out on the brunch experience despite having brunch menus. We apologize for the confusion with the appetizer and drinks, as well as the additional inconvenience of the server needing authorization to serve brunch. This is not the level of service we aim to provide, especially on a day meant for celebration. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we're committed to addressing these issues to ensure they don't happen again in the future. We sincerely hope you'll give us another chance to make it up to you and provide the exceptional experience you deserve.

    We we a little disappointed that we were not made aware of the Mothers Day Specials and it wasn't on the menu. Out of 4 entrees only 1 was really good. Needs more seasoning on most things and the meat was grisly.
    Bennett's American CookingResponded 7 days ago
    Hi Carrie, We're truly sorry to hear about your disappointment with the lack of awareness about our Mother's Day specials and the overall dining experience. It's disheartening to learn that the entrees fell short of your expectations in terms of seasoning and meat quality. Providing a memorable dining experience, especially on special occasions like Mother's Day, is incredibly important to us, and we regret that we missed the mark on this occasion. Your feedback regarding the need for more seasoning and the quality of the meat will be shared with our culinary team for immediate improvement. We appreciate you bringing these concerns to our attention, as it helps us to identify areas where we can enhance our offerings and service. We hope you'll give us another chance to make it right in the future. Thank you for dining with us, and we apologize once again for the disappointment.
