    We took friends whomever never been there before, unfortunately they did not live up to expectations. Octopus was dry and chewy, scallops had to be sent back as they were cold. Tuna was fair at best. Bartender was slow as heck and could not get drink orders right. Obvious staffing issue as our waiter appeared to be the only waiter working

    Impeccable service from Kieran and the lovely young woman from Ohio (I didn’t quite catch her name). The wagyu entree was among the most delicious dishes I’ve had the pleasure of eating. The toro tartare never disappoints and the special crème brûlée cobbler dessert was exquisite (so were the hot, fluffy cloud-like donuts). Thanks for a wonderful experience, as usual!

    food was fabulous as usual, but unfortunately Emily was a bit of a lazy server, had to ask for silverware and then ask her to clear plates for dessert and not very attentive.

    We had heard great things about the Brunch—and they were right! Lots of choices and innovative presentations. The Brioche French Toast was so so good, and more than any one person should eat for one meal. Prices are quite reasonable for such a great brunch.

    Great dinner, attentive service. Lovely flavors and unique combinations in every dish. We tried the tuna, the steak and the grouper. All cooked wonderfully and very flavorful. The key lime pie is the bomb - citrus explodes on your palette! Quite noisy but we’ll worth the visit.

    1000/10 highly recommend. Obsessed with this place. I had the 5 course dinner and was so impressed. Each course was so elegant and thoughtful. My partner had the ny strip and it was incredible. It was cooked perfectly. We sat the counter and had a blast interacting with the chef and staff. They were so passionate and fun and it showed though the food. Drinks were phenomenal as well

    I like Counter Culture and typically have good service the 5 or 6 times I've been there. This last visit we sat at the counter during a shift change and didn't get service for some time. They were very apologetic . I would prefer sitting at the bar counter vs the kitchen counter so the service will be prompt. Other than that, no complaints. The food is good and I will definitely go back.

    Amazing menu options. The ability to watch the kitchen in action and to personally chat with the staff while eating was a great experience. The variety of flavors presented, with small garnishes, on one dish, was something that you don't often find offered elsewhere. We will definitely be back to work our way through the menu.

    The venue was very enjoyable and attractive. The food was excellent as there were a number of choices awesome, delightful, wonderful culinary creations ranging from starters to desserts. The our appetizer/salads were appealing in appearance and taste. Entrees were creations were not your standard fare but tasteful, thoughtful creations by a very talented chef and staff. The wood fired cooking is delightful. Our table voted to return multiple times in the future.

    Sat at the outside bar and it was pleasant. Food was pretty good. Drinks were average. I would go back again, but probably stick with a burger verses the fish which was a bit overcooked and dry.
