    While our server was nice and the food was okay, I wouldn't rush to return. We walked past multiple tables full of dirty dishes on the way to our table, which was unappetizing. Our food (the Bagel Brunch) was nicely presented, but didn't taste great. And seeing flies in the restaurant, likely due to the door to the patio area, was a turn-off. My sense was that they were understaffed and don't really have their brunch game together.

    Anniversary celebration. Great drinks, appetizers. One entrees (trout) was fantastic. The other, steak frites not so good. Very tough and fatty cut of beef. I would have sent it back but didn’t want to ruin the house tine so faked it that it was good.

    The food was expensive for the portion size. My husband was still hungry when we left the restaurant. The service was great. Ambiance was nice. Restrooms were on the lower level of the hotel, so not easily accessible.

    The steak and frites was really bad, half of it was just fat, bad cut too, any decent restaurant would at least trim the meat before serving, was also no grilled properly, it tasted like was cook on a pan or microwave, I normally don’t write reviews but don’t want see anyone getting ripped off 50.00 for bad food, do not recommend!

    Typically love our experience at Mulberry. Service was good as well as the food. We ordered the tomahawk steak for 2. Flavor great and something that we have ordered in the past. Helpful to serve the steak right away while still warm. Took a little while to get the steak after it had been sliced. Sides were great- Mac and cheese and Brussel spouts. We chose a table in the bar area, like that area. It became congested with a group hanging out by the entry and hostess desk meeting and greeting. A little too close and made it tough for staff as well as guests to flow past and impacts guests dining experience. We are regulars and will definitely be back. Just sharing a few things that are easy improvements. Thank you. Love to see this restaurant doing so well. We are good references for you.

    I really want this restaurant to be good. The venue is great, service is great, drinks are good, but the food is not so good. This is my second experience here. The first time around my entree, trout, was fine, but others at our table had under cooked entrees. The second time it was my own order, again the trout, that was raw and cold in the middle. I ate around the edges, but it was not good and very bland. The server removed it from my bill and was very apologetic. She did a great job! The kitchen, not so great.

    Even with a reservation we were seated 15 minutes past the reserved time. Waited over 35 minutes to receive our food. Was told by the staff at Surety Hotel that the MST double burgers were the best in town. This was the worst burger I’ve ever had. Top bun was burnt black, meat was so salty my mouth turned dry, struggled to get through half of the burger. Brussel sprouts in the Brussel sprout carbonara were undercooked. Salmon was delicious, but very small portion. Not worth the money. Would rather go to Five Guys for a burger.

    We really wanted to like this place. We were in awe of its atmosphere. The place is beautiful. Service was ok and very poorly timed. My husband ordered a cocktail and he had about 1/4 of the drink left and the server took the drink as if he were finished. Nothing on the menu looked that great. Shame on us for not looking at the menu first. I wasn’t going to pay market price for a steak so I opted for a burger. It was a good burger but it wasn’t what I was in the mood for. My husband had the pork chop and it was cold and didn’t have a lot of flavor. The appearance of the place is exceptional the rest of it was very underwhelming. For the prices it really should have been so much more.

    We were seated next to a large, loud and boisterous group, and the tables were far closer together than I preferred, with Covid transmissibility a threat. After waiting 20 minutes for someone to take my drink order, I left and went upstairs to my room and ordered room service. The food was EXCEPTIONAL! The cheese board was fantastic. I had the salmon and my husband had the chicken and both entrees were perfectly prepared and yummy. We were disappointed that the Talbott Chardonnay was the only Chardonnay available by the bottle, so we had a Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc instead. It was disappointing to only have one choice of Chardonnay! We would definitely recommend this restaurant. The chef is creative and talented, but the front of the house needs work.

    Mulberry Street TavernResponded on May 14, 2022hello Lee, thank you for taking the time to share this feedback! We're so glad that you enjoyed the food and sincerely sorry that we missed the mark on service--from the uncomfortable table to the miscommunication about the wine. It seems that you were not given the correct menu, as we do have a broader selection of chardonnays by the bottle. It is understandably disappointing that this mix up was not corrected while you were still in the restaurant. The issue has been resolved and this review has been shared with the team so that we can improve moving forward. We hope that you'll give us another chance to impress you in the near future!

    While they did have more items than the online menu listed, the variety of options is somewhat limited compared to many other area restaurants. That said though, the quality of food and service was top notch! Avery was our server and made great drink and food suggestions and was pretty entertaining as well.

The spaces are perfect for rehearsal dinners, small weddings, business dinners or family gatherings and each room presents original hard wood floors, stunning views and a lounge area.
