Great service, low key vibes. Dog friendly! Good food and good drinks. Worth it a try if you're looking for a chill spot for dinner or drinks because we're going back

I was excited to try The Line based on a friend's recommendation. Unfortunately the fare didn't live up to its billing. The fried green tomatoes tasted like tempura with no filling, the garden salad was drenched in dressing and not particularly good. The entree was lackluster. There was a cute little beetle in my salad who was very much alive. Honestly I wouldn't have cared less about that if the food was actually good. (After all, veggies and beetles should live together.) But the food was not good.

The fresh strawberries were just strawberries, but actually my favorite part of the meal.

The Manhattan, however, was quite good. Service was pretty good.

They really need to improve the menu.

The resturant doesn't exist anymore.. we made a reservation for a resturant that doesn't exits in the line somehow. The food we were served was great, but it wasn't brother and sister. Apparently, the original chef left. Idk how I'm able to make reservations for a place that is no longer there.

The bartender who took our order and made our drinks was the best. I wish I got her name but she was lovely and hospitable!

We had the best time here for my friend’s birthday! The food was outstanding and we even got a complimentary appetizer and dessert! Incredible service, ambiance and food! The spicy pork Ragu and the s’mores pie stood out as our favorites.

I went for happy hour and the drinks were tasty, food was good, and service was great! The space is also attractive and sophisticated. The information about the restaurant on Open Table was wrong in a couple ways, though: 1-Happy hour actually starts at 5, not 4. Only the cafe is open before 5. 2-The linked menu is incorrect and the drinks actually on offer were different; I was disappointed that some I'd seen online weren't available.

Yummy food and great drinks! Really cool aesthetic as well. Apparently they have a regular happy hour from 5PM - 7PM. Will have to go back to hit that up.

We stayed at the Line Hotel and decided to try Brothers and Sisters for a beer after a long drive and stayed for dinner. And came back for drinks several times during our stay. Great service, delicious food and we really loved the ambiance. Felt safe in these Covid times. Good distancing and courteous staff. Will come back!

I love the food and the atmosphere was great. But the service took seriously forever for how expensive the meal was.

Couples looking for an opportunity for conversation over dinner, stay away. For a hotel restaurant, we expected a more varied menu and cloth napkins. It's more like a bar scene than a restaurant. Won't be going back again.

Poor and slow service. Not attentive to the table and messed up our order. The room is very sleepy and poorly lit. The majority of the food was yummy.

We had a great dinner at Brothers & Sisters. The cocktails and small plates were all excellent. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Went to The Line Hotel for afternoon Tea on a Saturday. The atmosphere was wonderful, beautiful building, and the tea and treats were stellar. We had creative dishes and exotic tea, and I appreciated that we got to pick which tea cup to use. The manager at the front knew my name and greeted when I checked in and said goodbye when I left. The only thing I'd improve upon is the speed of service- it was a bit slow, but our waiter was attentive. I realized that they also had a wedding going on (in a different space) the same time we were there, which contributed to the slow-down. I will definitely go again.

Our waiter was truly the best. His recommendations were spot on. They also gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our special occasion.
