                                                    I made a res for my daughters graduation. We have been several times before and really enjoyed it. We were sat on patio despite my indoor reservation-it was hot and there were a ton of flies!!! Then they were out of cvs Ickes and salmon making menu very limited. Not the post grad meal we had hoped for

                                                    Hi Stefanie, I apologize that we were out of a couple of proteins. Our suppliers been having trouble getting us items for our menu over the last day. I did research for the reservation and it's actually notated as an outdoor booking. I'm sorry we couldn't accommodate your request for inside and I'm sorry for the negative experience. I hope your next visit with us is incredible. I've made a note in your booking to take extra special care of you. Sincerely, Amandalynn Picolo General Manager

                                                    Hush puppies were bland. My colleague and I were served two different types of fish for the same entree, neither of which was good. The service was disinterested at best. Dishes were forgotten and check ins were only sporadic. The app recommended Vessel based upon my frequent visits to Gjelina in Venice. The algorithm needs work because the two restaurants are not remotely comparable.

I will be doing research into who was taking care of your table as we clearly missed the mark with your service. I will also inform the kitchen that the hush puppies were bland. Your feedback will be used to improve our service and menu. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

I'd be interested to know what specific issues you experienced so I can be sure to correct them. We are working hard to correct known issues as I've just acquired a new Chef de Cuisine, and hired an Assistant Manager. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    The former church is lovely, but the sun shining through the windows in the evening are a problem. Directly in the eyes of anyone facing them. Our waitress apparently had trouble hearing us and thought we were sharing the salads and entrees so they were delivered separately. The first entree was not hot although the second was.

                                                    Not our best visit. We’ve been here many times, but the service & food was lacking. I ordered the traditional breakfast which included grits, scrambled eggs (runny), and a biscuit (no salt/taste). They did the drop & run and I didn’t have a chance to ask for salt & pepper, butter, & jam. Took me 10 minutes to flag someone down. First rule of service, ask your customer if they need anything before you walk off. My friend ordered the blueberry waffles & there were no pistachios. Her coffee was lukewarm.

                                                    We had a large party reservation at 9:45. We arrived a bit early and waited at the couches by the entrance which was nice. Once we were seated the vibes were just a little awkward. Our waiter asked me for my ID 3 times and you could just tell she wasn’t the biggest fan of our group. The food was good but took 50 min to arrive. The red fish, Fillet mignon, and the scallops were the best dishes by far. I think this place would just be better for an older crowd and small parties. They DONT split checks and we had to talk to the manger so we could get separate checks which took a while. Truly I would go back if I was going on a date because the drink I ordered was good and the food was too. Just the service threw me off.

                                                    2nd time this week and man-o-man are they struggling. I feel like the management must be off or out of wack! Servers know nothing about the menu, chef overcooked multiple meals twice, wait staff is I’ll prepared and hadn’t even had the food to comment, and the staff clearly had not prepped for brunch as they were still pulling things out and making the ambiance nice at 1p when we were leaving. We’ve really tried to support the place but this will very likely be the last time we dine at Vessel! Shrimp and grits were on point though!!

                                                    Hi, I'm sorry you experienced service issues. I will admit we have been struggling in the management department. We just recently acquired a Chef De Cuisine and I have new FOH management starting on Monday. It has been only me over the whole space for a while so with this new team under me, I anticipate we will be moving from struggling to exceptional very soon. I'm sorry you were negatively impacted while we work on ourselves. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    Such a cool place and atmosphere! Drinks are always amazing and food is killer! It’s one of our “go to” places to grab drinks before events. We always love to bring friends and family from out of town here because of how cool it is and we’ve done a few birthday dinners as well. Appetizers are hands down the best, we could get full on just those! We’ve only come for dinner but can’t wait to try brunch! Vessel never disappoints!

                                                    This was just shockingly bad service. Our server took our drink and food order (apps, salads, mains) and did not show up again for me than an hour. When he did he brought out our main coarse only. When he realized he literally forgot about us he rushed into the kitchen brought out everything at once, then abruptly notified us it was last call! My worst service experience in Nolo. Completely unapologetic! The gratuity added to my table of 5 was just the final injustice.

                                                    I have been to Vessel a couple of time and usually happy with the food and service. However, this night the staff was disorginazed, they were out of two menu items and the food was very slow. About an hour from order to table. Still enjoyed the night.

                                                    Service was extremely slow, they added gratuity for 4 & a child, we waited for over an hour for food that the manager had to comp our appetizer & offered free desserts because they "lost our ticket" in the kitchen. We didn't complain, but they knew it was a mess. The portions were extremely small, & overall over-priced. We will probably not return sadly.

I tried my best to make it right for your guest as we did lose your ticket after a long holiday brunch on our bumpy transition into dinner service. We have just acquired a new Chef de Cuisine so we have made some menu changes for a smoother service. We hope should you return we wow you. Regards, Amandalynn

                                                    Took my mother here for Mother’s Day . The prefix menu had a limited selection but everything served was very good . Server did a great job as well . Bartenders made great drinks . My only complaint and why I’ve given 4 out of 5 stars is because of the wait . I will definitely head back again and recommend this place . Also the ambience was great . Having a restaurant in a church is cool .

                                                    Service was incredibly slow. Waited neatly an hour before our first course was served. Wait staff frequently got our food order mixed up with a table for four seated next to us. Ambience was ice, but service was poor, food was average at best and not worth the overpriced Mother's Day Brunch cost. Unfortunate and unpleasant experience.

                                                    The other reviews are accurate. The space is nice and the noise level is good. But the service is SLOW and the food mediocre at best. We were there for almost 3 hours. Our server disappeared for periods of time and offered weird excuses for the slow service. My favorite was that it was our fault because we had a 1 pm reservation and thus later in the brunch shift. We spent a lot of money for a not so pleasant experience.

                                                    We celebrated Mother's Day and we wished we knew that the menu only offered the pre-fix meal and didn't include the original menu as we wanted to order from both since the pre-fix menu didn't give much options. The service seemed a bit inexperienced as when we asked for a napkin to help soak up condensation from out drinks, we were given a bussing towel and it stayed on the table throughout the duration of our meal. Food was great. Service could be improved. Very sad we couldn't order from the main menu since that was what made me make the reservation in the first place. Also, jazz music was the highlight of the "experience" I believe but I couldn't identify any when we sat outside.

                                                    Was informed Mother’s Day brunch would be prix fixe. Not a surprise for a holiday. We had a vegan in our party, so I called Friday (our res was Sunday) asking if that person’s diet could be accommodated. Usually Vessel has got vegan options. Was told very specifically that yes, there would be a vegan/gluten free prix fixe menu available. We showed up 5 mins before res, had to wait 5 mins for a hostess to even appear, 15 more mins to be seated. No vegan prix fixe menu, so one of our party simply didn’t eat. Which, if you don’t want to accommodate other diets fine, but this is why we always call ahead—to be told yes ahead if time and then no when we show up really sucked. I was so embarrassed one of my guests couldn’t eat when I’d assured him I’d called ahead and he could. Regular prix fixe, 3 courses, was also overpriced at $60. Not as tasty as Vessel usually is either. Just mediocre. Lousy experience overall. Especially for a holiday. Our specific server that day was very nice and apologetic. None of it his fault. But this experience as a whole has soured me on this place.

We have had quite a bit of new hires and getting everyone on the same page has been difficult. Unfortunately it is correct that I was not offering a Vegan prix fixe menu. We only do the one prix fixe menu with no substitutions only omissions. I'm very sorry the misinformation negatively impacted you. We are working hard to improve.

                                                    Unfortunately we had a bad experience. For the Mother's Day brunch my family with young children was placed at a shared high top. The meal took over 2 hours even though we did the prix fixe. My mother left her sweater and when she returned to retrieve it, it had been thrown on the ground near the entrance.

                                                    Hi Amelia, I apologize for the hiccups in your service. I am so embarrassed however that my staff did not better care for your families belongings. As for your placement for Mothers Day, that's what we have on our records of what you reserved for your group, a high top table. I am sorry you were ultimately not happy with your seating selection. With more advance notice we could have made arrangements to better accommodate you. Regards, Amandalynn General Manager

                                                    We had a delightful Mother’s Day brunch outside in the back. The food was great. The service was a little slow, but they were slammed.

                                                    Reservation 9:15. Arrived, no table. Told kitchen closes at 10. We’re not offered a place to wait for table so found a place at end of bar. At 9:50 bartender ask if we want to order from the bar since kitchen closing. Rushed food, under cooked crawfish croquettes, over cooked burger. Not much good I can say., except if they get their act together could be good place.

                                                    Hi Craig, I am sorry for the issues with your food. You booked your reservation at 8:30pm for 9:15pm. You called that you were running late so we pushed it to 9:30. You were offered a place to sit near the host stand or the bar. Later I approached you at the bar and asked if you wanted to sit outside, continue to wait for an inside table, or dine at the bar. You chose to stay at the bar. Our kitchen closes at 10pm so it's customary to give guest a last call for food service. -Amandalynn

                                                    Love the setting and server was excellent, but the food was much to be desired. It was luke warm at best and the fried oysters were so fishy they were un-eatable. The spinach salad was so limp and over dressed that it was not eaten. Manager did remove cost of salad but we were so disappointed we probably won't return.

                                                    I was very disappointed that they were out of Salmon. Also, we asked for bread and they were out of that as well. Better preparation needed.

                                                    Hi Tatia, We are doing our best to be as prepared as possible however we've been short on management staff, and we aren't always able to get the product that we need so some execution of items are missed. We know this is an issue that's gotten better for other restaurants, but we're still struggling. Please pardon our progress as we try to make our post pandemic come back.
