Upside: Pork and chicken were both delicious. Mac and cheese is very different with a vinegary tang - but very good. Super cold beer hit the spot.
Downside: Once I got my food and initial beer I was pretty much ignored by the staff. Had to go to the bar and get my own beer and then had to go up to get a take out box since everyone seemed to be focused on talking with their friends, not catering to the customers.
There were approx. 12 people at the restaurant at the time.
Great food, crappy service.
Excellent decor, less than acceptable service. Understandably, the bartender was alone. They would do well to have a more experienced tender flying solo. Frankly, I would be very surprised if the management knew their employees (if they are employees) were on a review page giving lip service to customers. Maybe is a little more indicative of their service and attitude than I normally give reviews credit for. Place has great potential.
Service is EXTREMELY slow. It took 45 minutes for us to get salads. So don't even think about this place during a lunch break. Really a shame because the food itself was excellent.
this place has a great atmosphere but the food is mediocre and although it is a tapas menu i found the portions to be skimpy and overpriced! My friends and I (4 total) literally ordered almost everything on the menu and still left there hungry! I miss Meritage.
Just average, nothing to blow your skirt up. The Beer was good, my salmon BLT was okay, but underseasoned. Seems like a little too much of a chain-restaurant atmosphere. Maybe theyre still working the kinks out....
Came for lunch and ordered a few appetizers (3). Was told they were out of shrimp so had to change our order.
We waited for about 20 minutes until 2 of the 3 appetizers made it to the table and was told the last one would be out in a few minutes. THEN the waiter came back and said that the meat hadn't been taken out of the freezer the night before so they couldn't make the last appetizer.
At the rate that the food was coming out, we didn't want to wait another 20 minutes if we ordered something else.
The waiter didn't charge us for our drinks (ice tea and water) because of the appetizer issue.....big whoop.
Don't waste your time eating at Fuel.
Bad experience all around.
I ate at RB's at someone else's insistence and was unsurprised at how little I enjoyed it. The bar was nice, but beyond that I didn't eat anything that made me ever want to go back. It was so forgettable that the only thing I remember is: don't bother going back.
Clearly the owner spends far too much time worrying about parking enforcement and too little time on the kitchen. Overpriced, under-tasty, and actually somehow the views aren't even that great. Doesn't the same person/group own Red's and RB's? What's with the crazy parking situation.
Went on possibly the worst day ever--Valentine's Day. Crowded, noisy, as we expected it would be, but tolerable. Food was good, but not stellar. Waitress was friendly but REALLY pushing hard to pad the (already expensive) tab. Might go again, in the future, maybe for lunch to see if we just originally picked the worst possible day to go!
The meal started off great, our server was friendly and efficient. Everyone was happy with their meals, until towards the end, when we noticed some dark specs at the bottom of the fries. The waitress told us that the fries are cooked with bacon, and they need to update the dinner menu. Unfortunately, 2 of my dining companions do not eat pork. Thanks for allowing us to pay (full price) for you to make us sick.
The location is excellent, the atmosphere very pleasant, and the service OK. But the food...you've got to be kidding me. My wife had the chicken parm and I had the veal parm. The chicken breast was tough with a heavy, overcooked tasteless breading. The veal was not meat, but just a processed veal patty..unacceptable for $18..this meal can be purchased for much less in the frozen food section at Harris Teeter. Suggest leaving this one for the tourists.
emerald city was way better then jaguars its too expensive 15 nim for 175 and 30 min for 300. what is that? they dont answer the phone went you call. this place wont last long with out clients.
Its almost as bad as jokers and they are a joke.
