This was our first visit to Rye House. Several of us from NJ and CT were meeting up and found Rye House online. We stayed for more than 3 hours talking! The food was fresh and good. We did not have dessert but the tea selection was great. It was freshly made with loose tea and fresh. It’s a rustic and attractive atmosphere. I would definitely go back.

We came in there for dinner on a Friday night about 5:30. We got a seat and drinks right away and ordered dinner shortly after that. The dinner took at least 30 minutes to get and came out lukewarm. The sweet potato's must of been sitting in a warmer all day. They were soggy and cold. The Veggie burger lukewarm.

We are regular diners at the Rye House, and always love it when we get the chance to return. We love the shrimp and grits, the short ribs, branzino. These are our "go to" dishes, but everything we've ever ordered has been delicious. And don't pass up their amazing cocktail list. Our fave is the "wakeup call." Kudos to Ryan, the restaurant manager, who welcomes and checks in on us every time, and we can see he does that with all guests--returning or new. But always with just the right amount of attention--not too much, and not too little.

I love the Rye House for dinner before shows at the Capital Theater. It is TOOOOOOOOO noisy is my only complaint. The food is always solid, the drinks are reasonable and the atmosphere is fun. Thanks

Service was not very good. Server brought the wrong drink 2x to the same person and someone else asked for dressing on the side of their dinner salad and that too was ignored.

Busy at restaurant. Table of 5, only 2 menus given. Happy hour sign on table. Long time before we were waited on. Food didn’t take that long to arrive. Food was good.
Bill came and we questioned bill as happy hour prices not honored. Manager said it was only at the bar. Unsure of why they had the signs on the tables then. Reluctantly gave us the $10 off of a close to $200 bill.

Food and cocktails are always very good.
Great location, though street parking can be hard to come by during the week becuase it's so close to the train station.
Service is a bit spotty:
-- We were only given one menu for the two of us - this has happened to us before at Rye House - so one of us went to the website on our phone and looked at that menu instead.
-- Our first round of drinks sat on the table for a while before we were asked if we wanted another round.

Despite a very busy night before a concert at the Capitol Theater, food was deliciously prepared and presented. Service was a bit stretched but pleasant. Noise level was manageable if you sit in the back. Cool place within walking distance of train.

We ate there prior to a show at the Capital. The service and food were excellent. The only negative was it was very loud and hard to talk. It was a full house, but it seems like an acoustics issue that could be fixed.

Rye House is in walking distance of the Capital Theater and the food was tasty but a little pricey. It was also extremely loud with blasting rock music and poor acoustics. Fun for a group but don’t go there for an intimate conversation.

Great place for dinner before a show at the Capitol Theatre. Trendy decor. Welcoming bar area.

G-ma’s meatballs as a starter and the Korean chicken sandwich and Cuban for dinner. All were delicious!

I have always enjoyed my dining experiences at Rye House. On my last visit,it was less crowded than usual. My meals came out promptly and our waiter could not have been more accomadating. All in all, my meal and my wife's for that matter,were prepared to our satisfaction. If you are seeking a nice, casual spot to dine then this is the place.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal here- our first date night since having our baby!- thanks to the excellent service and relaxed ambience of the place. Our Bulleit Old Fashioneds were beautifully balanced, and we shared (and devoured) the Korean fried chicken sandwich (great acidity from the kimchi coleslaw, sweet heat from the gochujang sauce, and the chicken was quite light!) , mushroom burger and shishito peppers (nicely charred but needed a bit of salt). Ryan, our server, was attentive and indulged us in a great conversation! We will return.

Crazy noisy inside - ambient noise is LOUD, but the conversation at the next table was very private. Food was good, waiter was very nice and after a slow start attentive. Maybe we hit happy hour but it was loud enough that it was hard to converse.

Great food and drinks and a great playlist on the house system. We ate at the bar which was perfect. Jason our bartender is the consummate professional. He helped us pick out dinner, (delicious bronzino and a tender pork chop) and wine and made the best Bourbon Manhattan I've had in a long time. Longest list of whiskey's I've ever seen on a restaurant menu. It started to get busy around 7:30 but the staff handled it without missing a beat.
Too bad we live on Long Island......
