Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mint & 820. You’ve done the world some good today.

Pretty Good

Went there on a Friday for happy hour. We were there pretty early, and it was slow, the service was good. The server was attentive, we were able to get drinks and food quickly. Even as it filled up the server was still good. The only thing I can say negative is that for a place specializing in martinis, I was disappointed with the ice in mine.

The lamb burgers were all that and proved up to the many positive things I've heard the last two years. barkeep comped us a couple (kinda bizarre) cocktails on a slow night and was attentive without being pushy. Nice date place or if you just want a low key evening and good grub.

Good Service, Bad Food, We both got sick!

Went for happy hour in bar. I had fish and chips. Fish a bit too fishy after first bite. Probably a few days old. Potato and Sweet Potato fries were limp and greasy. Result of oil not hot enough. My ""chips"" were no longer than 1-1/2 inches and mostly just the ends of sliced potatoes. Looked like the bottom of the bag! Two hours later we were both sick. Gastrointestinal distress if catch my meaning. Also, ... view more

Mixed Reviews

Ok, here is my first review when I had a good experience: I really liked this place. The happy hour apps are nice and the drinks are tasty. The bartender guy (Jason maybe?) is really nice and I really enjoyed everything. I thought the sweet potato fries were perfectly crispy. They were nice and hot and served with a perfect dipping sauce. The ""spicy"" caesar is really good too. I would definitely go back to this pla... view more

horrible service

820: Good happy hour prices, food, drinks and atmosphere, but I will avoid this place like the plague. Our server apparently hated us from the time we walked in. No idea why! We practically had to beg for drinks. We stayed past happy hour and spent well over $100 because we were enjoying each others company, but in this economy I hope that their management realizes that this is not acceptable. Bummer! I thought I was... view more

Friendly service, amazing drinks, awesome food

Mint has some of the tastiest ""foo-foo"" drinks I've found. Definitely a spot for the occasional treat and not a once a week kind of place, but well worth the cost. Plus, you have to love a place that has a once a week (Wed) happy hour from 4pm until close! All the food we tried as tasty, especially the chocolate croissant pudding with their freshly made mint ice cream on top. If you're having a bad day grab a c... view more

great drinks

Went on a Friday for Happy Hour. We were surprised to find that the drinks and happy hour appetizers were reasonably priced. The sweet potato fries were excellent and I suggest The Bella for a great drink experience. Atmosphere was a little ""trendy"" but not pretentious. Definitely would like to return to try more drinks and order dinner.

Loved it!

I'd heard about Mint because my brother-in-law bought Lucy's, Mint's Mixologist, book ""Hip Sips"" and we were loving all the great recipes. You can get a lot of the same drinks at Mint as well as new and exciting ones.\r \r I have now been only once - going again tonight - and the food was great and the drinks were even better! I met my mom there just in time to catch the tail end of happy hour and stayed for di... view more

Food Just OK. Service was bad.

Food was OK - Not Great. Service was BAD. So, I do like I always do, and you should too. If service is bad, don't leave a tip. They did not earn a tip. How many times do you think it would take until the server figured it out. Bad Service = No tip. Things would change fast.

First time experience....We will be back

First of all, we were very worried about going after reading the reviews about bad service and meals. Well let me tell you, we had no reservation, a party of 5 with 2 teenagers, got greeted and seated immediately. Once at our table, our server got to us promptly and was very helpful with our selections of drinks, starters, and our meals. The food was fantastic, the drinks were great, and the staff was all very att... view more
