Food and service was phenomenal well worth every penny. My Wife had the pork chop special and said it was the best meal she has had in 50. My entire family enjoyed their meals. This was our 4 visit and it just keeps getting better.

This was our second time here and it was a big disappointment from our first visit. The food was above average and on par with our first visit but the value was not there. We were not that hungry and ordered off the appetizers menu. I ordered the mixed green salad $11 and the poblano pepper stuffed with jerked chicken and mango salsa $11. The wife ordered the jumbo lump crab meat crab cakes $14 to be put over the same mixed green salad I ordered.


Here is what we got. I got a good size salad filling a full size dinner plate which was great, fresh green with a tasty dressing, no problem here. The stuffed pepper was different, one average size poblano sparingly stuffed with about a tablespoon of mango salsa and one tablespoon of tiny cubes of chicken. It was tasty with the black bean sauce but really not stuffed to where you really got to enjoy the stuffing.

My wife’s two Jumbo lump crab meat crab cakes were the smallest I have ever seen served in a restaurant, maybe 2” diameter at most. The two together would make one average size crab cake anywhere else. The kicker was the bowl they came in with the salad. It was half the size of a regular dinner plate, like my salad had come on. It was holding at most half the salad I had gotten for my salad. Yet we ordered the crab cakes to come on the same salad.

We even asked the waiter why the small salad when we ordered the same as mine. He asked the kitchen and they claimed it was same size.

If we go back, because the food and ambiance is good I will be ordering off the regular menu.

We dine at 618 often and love it! Nice atmosphere and great food. This time it was exceptional because of our waitress Danielle. She was attentive but didn’t rush us and when she heard it was our anniversary she made it special !! Just a great night at 618!

We came here for our mother-in-law’s birthday. We have been here before with her, but this time seemed extra special. The bartender is incomparable. Expensive drinks are totally worth their taste. Everybody loved their dinners, and the desserts were heavenly.

This is the third time in 3 months. The spare rib raviolis are terrific. Next time I will delay my order to allow appropriate timing between courses. We ended up with the appetizer and salad delivered on top of each other and then entrees just after. While it was only 2 of us, we were in and out in less than an hour with a $125 bill.

Wonderful meal. Prices are a bit high, but you get what you pay for. If economy dining is your thing that’s I would avoid 618. High quality I gradients, unique and enjoyable menu in a beautiful atmosphere with attentive staff , what more could you want ?

Service by Savannah made the evening extremely nice.food is good though portions on smaller side. Crab cake appetizers were wonderful. Shirt rib in Cabernet sauce tasty though a little sweet. Would like to see a larger variety of main dishes. A nice place to dine.

We were very pleasantly surprised that the food, service and ambience were first rate. There are not many restaurants in the area with that trifecta.....and a liquor license and decent bar
We will be back

Service was excellent! Our water glass was never half empty. The pork belly appetizer was just OK. The pop Adele Bolognese was excellent. The short ribs were a little tough but the Brussel sprouts were great!

We were there for the Make-A-Wish fundraiser. My son received his wish 14 years ago ( Brain Cancer) snd he’s raised over $10,000 through the walks. So thought it was a great night to celebrate with delicious food - great service!

We had a get together with two other couples and went to 618 on a recommendation from my neighbor. Based on his experiences I knew everything would be top notch and after a very enjoyable dinner I can say the opinion was shared by everyone. We started with appetizers of crab cakes and grandma’s meatballs that were the best ever. Our main courses ranged from filet mignon to braised short ribs to butternut squash ravioli. All were excellent and the presentation equally so. The wine list is superb and desserts were yummy. As good as everything was, the service was exceptional. Our servers, Laura and Savannah, were charming, professional and on point the entire evening. Charles (Chuck) is the general manager and he stopped by the table to say hello and ask our opinions. One final touch that really impressed me was when we were leaving Laura was at the Hostess station with the hostess to wish us a good night and thank us for dining with them. We will be visiting 618 on a regular basis.
