Great "go-to" brunch for friends in town or just Sunday get together – I thought 2223 was delicious and a very plesant dining experience. I wanted to go somewhere specifically for brunch and I was very satisfied. I tried the Goat Cheese/Mushroom bread pudding and WOW was it delicious! I had never tried anything like it. I felt the place deserved a strong review. My drink could have come faster though :) Definitely try it out.
Great food but weird presentation. – I ate here a few days ago with some friends from out of town and was impressed by the food and service, but thought that the presentation lacked a bit. I got the butternut squash ravioli, which was delicious, but strangely sweet, it tasted like pumpkin pie, but the plate looked like they just slopped it on. I would recommend the food, great cocktail menu, romantic ambience, and good service.
Good comfort food, and friendly service – Great place for a casual dinner with friends, or have drinks at the bar section. I can usually count on having a good meal here, so it's a frequent choice after work. I would describe the cuisine as multi-cultural comfort food that is nicely presented, and at affordable prices. The menu changes often, but a few good dishes are always in the menu like the roasted chicken, and the sweetbreads (available in appetizer and entree size). The herb roasted Fulton Valley chicken is delicious, with the tower of onion rings, it can be described as a mountain of food. But they also have dishes that are less voluminous if you don't have a huge appetite. This week they have a butternut squash ravioli entree that is great. They also usually make really good tasting soups, this week it's a hearty lentil soup. The best soup I've tried was a corn chowder, too bad it's not a regular menu item. Desserts are nothing special. To satisfy a sweet tooth I prefer to go to Sweet Inspiration pastry shop on the same block down the street. I wouldn't consider it a romantic place, because it can be very noisy at times. Also sometimes there can be delays in the kitchen. Service is usually very friendly and helpful.
It's all good, go for a special occasion (or all special occasions like us) or just walk in. – I have been here numerous times over the last 6 years and keep coming back. It's hard to pass up the chicken with it's garlic mash potatoes and onion rings but it was out done this time by the double cut pork chop and chili relleno TO DIE FOR! Service is the tops ! and even the hostess is outstanding, friendly, fun and professional. Not too much noise like some and a beautiful setting for a date or anniversary. Celebrated there several times and always can't wait to go back. Prices aren't out of whack for what you get. Save room for dessert and your eyes will pop out! Great bar area too..beautiful place.
nice surprise – this trendy little spot i stumbled on for dinner didn't disappoint. the wine was good and the menu selections were varied. my chicken was delicious - their signature dish - and came piled high with onion rings....the best i have truely ever tasted. some might complain about slowservice, but with the right company it wasn't that bad.
Excellent Brunch & Amazing Bloody Mary! – I went for brunch on my first visit and was very impressed with the food! Before eating my husband and I sat at the bar, the bartender was very friendly and made a mean bloody mary; it's served in a huge pilsner glass and it's very spicy which was excellent. I had the portabello bread pudding and it was out of this world. The server was good not great, but the food was so good that it really didn't bother me. Our bill for 2 entrees and drinks was about $45 including tip. I noticed they have a 3 course prix fixe menu on Sunday nights for $22.23 which seems like a steal. I'm excited to go back and try dinner there.
Bad experience overall! – We had a reservation for brunch but waited about 10 mins to acknowledge us at the door! Waited another 10 mins for table-OK. But then waited another 10 mins for someone to even talk to us! He then proceeded to tell us they were out of half of the menu (the items we went there for!) Hmm. Waited about 10 mins for a bottled water. We wanted to leave at this point. Food was luke warm. Side of potatoes were mostly little burnt crispy bits. Had to ask twice for a refill on coffee!
Understaffed maybe?? Need to employ someone to bus and refill coffee maybe??
Good place to go for brunch! – We had brunch here and it was great. It was busy, but they managed to fit us in with little hassle. Great for people watching.
MANIC – First off..Great food! But was distracted by ALL the staff racing back and forth. White shirts and aprons moving at the speed of sound. I was bumped exactly 17 times! Spilled on once. (water) The atmosphere was sheer pandemonium. Some people might delight in the noise and chaos (and call it lively) but it took a lot away from what would have been a great saturday night with friends. The food is good enough to try again.. but i will opt for a more low key weekday and hope for the best.
Walked out – I have always enjoyed the food at 2223, but it seems that the service is getting worse everytime. Todya we where seated quickly, and our drink order was taken, but no drinks where ever brought and after waiting at least 15 minutes, we just got up and walked out. This was not the first time that the service was so bad that made the resturaunt food pale and made for a less than exciting dining adventure.
