    Great food, great vibes. Summer staff is just getting into the swing of things. Enjoy a really nice shady and we'll laid out patio. Love this place! Thanks for the hospitality :)

    We usually love this place. We were the first table in and the 2 to order. Our food took 1 hr and ten min. 2 plates were starters that werent even cooked. Our server kept saying your food will be right out, but in an hour, we had to grab another server to say can someone follow up to find out that the receipt printer had been shut off in the kitchen. So even though our server had told us multiple times our food should be right out obviously she had actually asked the kitchen. We also didn’t feel like the food. This time was as good as it usually is overall we were just giant disappointed.

    Service was slow. Must of taken 20-25 minutes to get water and drinks. Food was ok, peach sourdough and flatbread were delicious. Charcuterie was ok however arrincini and tuna were bland. Patio environment though was fantastic.

    We went for a ladies’ brunch. Prohibition’s brunch menu is not huge, but offers some unique and appealing choices. Brown butter pancakes and several variations of eggs Benny were enjoyed by all. Our server was personable and attentive. The mimosas, tea and coffee were very good. We sat outside on the lovely tree covered patio. It was a bit noisy at times because it was race weekend and there was a fair bit of traffic- by foot and vehicle- but that was to be expected. I will happily go back any time, and highly recommend Prohibition to anyone looking to indulge in delicious food and drink.

    We enjoyed the food at Prohibition, and the drinks. However, the food took about 1h and 45 minutes to arrive. The waitress barely came to see us for over an hour while we waited (I think she came to drop our drinks, and then never came back until the food was ready, so after over 1h30 mins). We found it quite odd given the inside was empty and when we arrived, the pario was also half empty. We understood it was a long weekend, but it would have been nice to get better service for the long wait.

    They appeared to be well under staffed on a Sunday evening - plenty of open tables listed for reservation but our server was working far too many tables at once and could only stop by 3-4 times total in the 90 minutes we waited for our meal. The food is pretty good but the menu needs improving - very confusing structure with only a few entrees to choose from and a lot of add-on proteins with no bowls or salads to add them to.

    The service was good. The food was not, my friend and I both got the eggs Benny. She got salmon with no bun, due to gluten allergy. I got the prosciutto. I asked for my eggs well done, cause I hate runny yolks. They gave the well done eggs to my friend. I let the server know, he asked if I wanted new eggs, I said yes, when they brought the new eggs, one was fine, the other was still very runny. I could not eat it. Very disappointing, will not be back for brunch.
