    Service and ambiance are amazing! My wife had the Chicken Milenesa which was incredible. I had the Short Ribs and they were very good. The sides that came with our meals were among the best I’ve ever had.

    No comments...I was not happy. Took my mom for her bday. Emily was the only waitress there. The hostess was on her phone, she could've refilled drinks, got us silverware, got up off her glutes...Customer service and food was horrible. I think my grand daughters kid chicken was better than my chicken and waffles. No flavor at all. Her tator tots had a fresh rosemary taste- that was the only thing flavorful. I will not recommend to anyone. Emily was the only reason I didn't speak up and escalate my dissatisfaction bc she had a good attitude and smiling. She needs to find a better job where there's better food and team

    We had the steak specials on Thursday night. The food was delicious. Our server was fantastic. Did have to send a martini back to the bar because it wasn't cold enough. But, very good value and enjoyed the night.

    As soon as we got seated someone came out to tell us the service and food would be slower tonight. The food was really good, but it was def slow! (We had reservations for 9pm) and it was very crowded still! We all got waters and never got refilled. Would def go back though, just don’t be in a hurry!

    Our waiter was rude and seemed like he was on drugs. It took forever to get our order in and when he would talk to us, it was like he was waiting for us to tell him what to do. Very strange. The food was alright but it all took way too long

    When we got there they couldn’t find my reservation and told us they didn’t have anything because it was booked, after we should the email reservation we got seated but not were I requested bc they had a huge party upstairs and because of that our food didn’t came out till two and a half hours later we got there at 6:30 didn’t start eating till 8:40 unacceptable, food was great but the experience from waiting so long was already a bad one it was my wife’s birthday and it was a disappointment. We know it wasn’t the waitress fault the manager came and spoke with us and he took care of the food, overall wish it was a better way to take care of a huge party and rest of customer too.

    We went there for our 10 year wedding anniversary (with entire family in tow). The food was great. The atmosphere was young and relaxing. They were even very accommodating to our two year old son. Will definitely go back the next time we are in town.

    Watched my waitress in the bar area eating, drinking and chatting while I was waiting to order another drink. When she complained about having another table to cover I had to go to the bar to get my drink. I also saw the kid bringing food put on a rubber glove rub his nose with it, guess he thinks those are for his protection and not ours.

    Everything was DELICIOUS! Devin was super attentive without being too much. The Crab crusted red fish was phenomenal, the rib-eye was good too. The Crème Brule was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. I wish the music had been a bit louder, if there was music.

    Took 10 minutes to be greeted once seated at table. Another 20 minutes for drinks to be served. Ordered apps. Took 30 minutes for those to come and less than 5 minutes into enjoying apps, main meal arrived. Timing was god awful. A GOOD waiter would have left it in the kitchen and told the kitchen staff they messed up. But nope. Still left a table full of food. Bacon wrapped shrimp….the crabmeat tasted so fishy we couldn’t eat. Waiter saw full plate. Never asked if something was wrong with it. Chicken Melanese was good but not ONE artichoke was on the plate. Overall…meh. Pretty disappointed.

    Our table was not ready at our reserved time. We were seated underneath the stairs and forgot about. Our waiter was not polite nor informative. The food and drinks took a long time to be brought out. We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday and I even put special notes in our reservation. We were not offered any type of birthday dessert. We come to the Hearsay often for brunch and love it but our dinner experience was horrible

    RSVP for party of seven at five. Was running late so used online services to push it back thirty minutes. We had a private dining room to ourselves so the atmosphere was already great. We all ordered salmon, tacos, short ribs, and I had the filet mignon. Service was great, food was delicious except my steak was well done,. Not medium as requested. Most likely not our waitress fault. Other than that, fantastic dinner choice on my part. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be back got more. Thanks for the great dinner, Hearsay's.

    We made reservations but we were very hungry an hour before so we thought to try to get in a little bit before, luckily we did. The service wasn’t terrible, we got small cups compared to everyone else and we didn’t order anything special drink wise. My cup of water was empty for a while, fortunate enough we got our own pitcher of water. It took a while for the food to get out to us, but we enjoyed every bite. The hearsay burger was amazing, the chicken sandwich was amazing, and their redsnapper tacos are also amazing. The food was worth the wait in my opinion. I would recommend going here to anyone that wants some good cuisine.

    The food was great, but unfortunately, our experience was not up to par. After placing our orders, we waited 45 minutes to hear that two of the meals placed couldn't be served because the kitchen was out of the fish needed. After placing a separate order, the two replacement meals took another hour to come out. By the time, everyone had their food, we had been at the restaurant a full two hours. The team did comp the two meals, but overall, the experience wasn't great. We had to seek out our server several times and repeat requests when they were forgotten. I would not return for an sit-down meal.
