Despite the long wait even though I had a reservation (20-30 min), it was a lovely experience. Food portions were surprisingly larger than expected, delicious, and drinks were great. I had the cider and it really brought me back to when I visited the Basque region in Spain a few years ago. Service was also great.

We were in Spain's Basque region 2 years ago and this restaurant brought back all those fond memories. We had 4 tapa plates and 1 dessert - all were excellent. My only complaint was the music was much too loud for this type of restaurant - we could hardly hear each other and when the place filled up completely it was worse - the volume made no sense what so ever.

From the start it was amazing. I personally work in the f&b myself as a chef for the Marriott. Our waitress was flawless. How she said the ribeye would take 45 minutes so you can tell boh & foh we’re on the same page . Food was to good . Big shout out to the chefs and line cooks and the drinks were amazing. Definitely will be coming back and told a lot of people about the experience. Keep doing what your doing.

You can't go wrong at any of the CHG family of restaurants. Cooks & Soldiers always goes above and beyond to make you feel special. Simple things, like looking up your reservation history to see you've been there before, and giving you a 'Welcome Back!" takes little effort, no cost and makes a huge impression. We always get that treatment at C&S. Thanks for making our date night special, once again. You guys rock!

My date and I went for a Valentine's Day dinner on the Sunday before the 14th. Our reservation was earlier (6:15) and we arrived prior to our reservation. The restaurant was slow at that time, and we were able to sit right down. Mary, our server, was quick to greet us. She was a delight, knowledgeable about the food and wine, and her recommendations were spot on! The majority of the tapas were very good, and the adventurous ones that were ordered, weren't to my liking, but everyone has their preference. Definitely a good time had, and would most definitely recommend.

Sommelier & GM Nicolas Quinones elevates your spirits with the perfect wine pairing every time. Already looking forward to our next feast at Cooks & Soldiers.

Food quality, taste and presentation was excellent. Configuration of tables is 1 star, we had about 4 inches from the two person table next to us and about a 12 inch "aisle" that staff and guests used to squeeze through. Tables and chairs were lightweight plastic that rocked and staff tried to insert napkins under to stabilize. very loud environment with no space for anyone to move around.

Looking for a good meal on a short notice- and stumbled upon a last minute reservation. We arrived before the rush and were quickly taken to our seat. Our sever was knowledgeable and attentive, offering suggestIons and guidance. The food- EVERYTHING- was delicious! We had the Little Gem Salad, smoked Mushrooms and duck starts, which were all amazing. The mussels were smoked, the bone-in ribeye perfectly charred, fish of the day delicate and flaky... everything was just amazing. Don’t wait, book a reservation and enjoy this causal dining experience.

The food was exceptional and our service was top notch. Chris was our waiter and he was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable of the ingredients in each item on the menu. We had a gluten free and pregnant member in the party and he went out of his way to accommodate. Great experience. Pork Belly and scallops were my favorites.
