    Waiter was not engaged with his service. Did no greet the table just announced his name, seemed consistently in a hurry and more or less just dropped our dinners on the table as if he could care less. I’m the end when we asked about splitting the bill he became argumentative. This actually ruined our experience.

    Wonderful dining experience, especially for a group. Sadly, the restaurant is under-staffed, but the people working there did their absolute best to hustle and make up for the loss in manpower! The food was terrific all around (and our table of 9 ordered a wide variety of items), very decent wine selection, and the bartender knows how to make a martini - what more can you ask for? All of us were discussing when we will be returning!

    Most of the people in our party loved their food. I ordered the steak and scallops and it was delicious. We also got great cocktails including the sidecar. Beautiful mahogany wood surrounds the space and we loved being able to view the kitchen since it was surrounded by windows in the center of the restaurant.

    My cocktail, scallops appetizer and dark chocolate cream brûlée were fabulous. I ordered the red snapper topped with lump crab and hollandaise sauce that was recommended by the server. The fish was over cooked and I barely touched it. It was tough and chewy. I finished my green beans, ate the lump crab and ate some potatoes. If you like coffee, get French press. I have noticed that some restaurants have very weak coffee. Despite my food not having been comped, I would still recommend Briquette.

    Food was ok but our service was terrible. Our waiter was rude and inattentive. In the 3 hours we were there he never once filled water glasses and we had to go to the bar ourselves to get a second drink. Our dessert was ordered 2 hours in but never arrived. The management needs to work on things. They actually told is there wasn’t anything they could do about the bad service. If you go be prepared to wait a long time.

    Food was good, but we were offered some add-ons where the price was not mentioned when the offer was made but was ridiculously high: $20 for two shrimps. Waiter should have volunteered the costs.

    The restaurant was very nicely presented. The server was good to the point that she was responsive, however the food recommendations were always the highest price items, which is fine but it was consistent across-the-board. When we received our food it was so-so, and the drinks were not crafted very well. For example our Moscow Mule was more sweet than we are accustomed to. This restaurant is OK but for the amount that we paid we probably would’ve enjoyed something else. The decor of the restaurant was very welcoming, the staff seemed attentive to detail (saw at least 2 wait staff polishing glasses), the restaurant was not very busy, but it did take a very long time for our food to come to the table. There may have been two other tables with guest at the time.

    Restaurant is quite nice with great art and exposed brick. Food was equally impressive. The Crabmeat Napoleon was delicious, served warm! It was the star app, tho the poke And couvant salad were delicious. We got three different fish dishes, all individual flavors distinct. Also the roasted duck w/black cherry glaze was stellar. Great takeOn Lemon meringue Pie, almost like a floating island in a sea of lemon curd and berries, delicious!

    Made a reservation and went yesterday and the food was very well made, plated nicely, tasted fantastic. Service was pretty bad. Took ~25 minutes for server to check in and serve water after we were seated. Meanwhile, other tables were being refilled with wine. It seemed to us that large groups get left for last. May have been a better experience for a smaller group. Complimentary chocolate cake for a birthday was a nice surprise. It was hard to hear opposite ends of a 7 top.
