    The food was fantastic. We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary there. The hostess was very kind and so was our waiter. We enjoyed the food. We had beef ribs and the strip steak. The chèvre cheese appetizer was excellent as well. We will be back.

    The food was pretty good but the overall experience was disappointing. We were seated quickly but then waited 20 minutes before a server came to our table. When we ordered, they were out of several signature drinks and menu items. Service from the bar and the kitchen were also very slow. I really wanted to like it but don’t know that I will return.

    We thoroughly enjoyed Grey Sweater a year ago and wanted to celebrate our anniversary at the adjacent Black Walnut. After being seated it was over 25 minutes before wait staff came to table. We ordered drinks, appetizers, salad, and entree. Two ordered items never made it to us. I suspect they were severely under staffed. We were there two hours and had two courses. Our salad was excellent. Beef ribs were good. Chicken dish just so, so. I think the issues are correctable but need additional trained staff.

    Food and server Tina were excellent. We were seated at the worst table in the place -near the door and a a big traffic pattern,(despite a 3 wk prior reservation). We had asked to move away from the door and were only offered another table by the door, stating that they were booked for the night. We noticed that no one ever sat at the two back tables for the entire hour and a half we were there. A dinner of this price and quality was an experience diminished by such a noisy, busy, and casual setting. We will be more specific next time we book a table here.

    This was our first time to go. My husband had the beef rib and he thought it was amazing. I had the pork tomahawk, it was good but a little dry. We tried the chargrilled oysters and they weee delicious. We had the rum cake feature and it was wonderful. We will definitely be back.

    We were seated at the Open Table reservation time of 7 p.m. The host was very nice and served us water 3 times before we finally had to speak up and let her know no member of the wait staff had been to our table since we arrived: 50 min. She sent the bar tender to our table so we could place our drink order and he took our appetizer and entree order, we never did get assigned a member of the wait staff and a manager never stopped by our table to apologize, and check in on our experience. Disappointing experience, they admitted they were very short staffed and overbooked, not planing to return.

    The food was good, very well presented, lots of fusion choices, good flavours. It was not the best-food-ever however. Service was good, cocktails were very tasty and well curated. It got very noisy as the night went on, just due to the layout/building. Something to keep in mind. I will probably come back for the variety of appetizers and drinks, they were the best part.

    I’d like to preface this by saying our waiter was fantastic and every person we interacted with was great as well. As a long time fan of Andrew Black and having been to Grey Sweater multiple times, I was surprised to find the food here to be pretty mediocre. The quail appetizer was over cooked and it seemed like we were just eating deep fried bones (also, our original order was given to the wrong table so we had to wait a while to receive it). I ordered two cocktails, and it took over 20 minutes each time to actually receive them. The first one I received was great, but the second one tasted nothing like the first and was very watered down. The steak I ordered was supposed to be medium rare, but it was closer to medium or medium well and had very little flavor to it. At one point during the meal someone else attempted to bring us a random dish we didn’t order and then realized it was supposed to go to a different table. Overall, the experience was mediocre and not worth the cost.

    The food was fantastic and so were the drinks. I will definitely be returning! the one downside, if any, would be that there were some times that I could barely hear the server because of the noise level. other than that, i have no complaints at all and will tell all my friends they need to go.

    Everything started good from appetizers to drink until our main course came. I ordered Tomahawk porkchop which I even showed the pictures to the waiter and she said it was so good. And then I was served with a chicken. She gave me a wrong order. It was only 2 table that she was serving and she took a wrong order and i dont understand how a Tomahawk become chicken. It was so disappointing. She offered to place what I ordered but we don't have enough time to wait to get the right order.

    Overall we had a nice experience but we've had better and less expensive at other restaurants. The service was rather slow and the restaurant wasn't crowded. It took quite a while from our dinner order to table service, which could have been a factor of an order of lavender chicken by a member of our party. There were a few salad items on the menu that were unavailable as posted which was somewhat of a disappointment. I must say the cocktail options were quite interesting and were excellent. Next time we would order a couple of appetizers and skip the entrees based on the presentation and comments from those diners around us who did just that. We will return.

    Drinks were lacking. Of the 5 we ordered only 1 would get reordered. 1 was returned because it was awful (hoisin drink, couldn’t even taste the whiskey). The food was good but nothing crazy. Many other restaurants in similar price range that are superior. Wasn’t terrible but won’t be back.
