I have eaten at North Mountain Grille several times now and have received consistently superb service and food. I am absolutely pleased with the atmosphere, relaxed yet upscale enough to want to hold business meet ups there or just have a nice "non chaotic" environment to enjoy a meal with someone you want to spend time with. Everything I have eaten at North Mountain Grille has been excellent! The staff treats their customers like they were family. It has always been an experience where I want to linger and savor my time spent there.
My daughter and I cane to Native last Saturday and our experience was phenomenal! Dakota rocks! He took care of everything we needed with a smile. My daughter and I left so happy and will definitely look for him again!
After all the hype...a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. As a 50 + year valley resident, I somehow had never made it to Durant's. When a gal in our happy hour group suggested it, I was all in (and excited). I'd heard marvelous things. On the positive side, the greeting you get from staff as you enter through the kitchen is not only entertaining, but a real treat. Those lovely gentlemen made us feel truly welcome. Our waiter not so much. While he tried to fake it, I got the impression he was not at all happy I were not in for one of their $80 steaks. Sorry, dude.The MAIN ISSUE? Both appetizers hubby and I got were SERVED LUKEWARM!! I was pissed right there. Cold food in any restaurant is unacceptable, let alone a place with the reputation (price?) of Durant's. The calamari was not crunchy, more like an uncooked bread coating. And lots of tentacles instead of the expected rings. And their famous beef? We got the well touted Durant's Debris, a supposedly lovely sampling of their fine steak in skewered chunks with a special dipping sauce. Fine steak?!?!? Very little flavor and I had to spit out about 1/4 of it that was just gristle. Dipping sauce was more like fixed up sour cream. I'm still wondering how Durant's (or why) keeps their reputation. Or do the regulars just love their haunt so much that they've come to accept the mediocrity? So sad, but no way does Durant's get a second chance from this group.
The food was prepared well but the serving size was small and the prices were high for the amount of food. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the waiter was very sociable and friendly. Would go again if I felt like overspending.
Our experience at this Applebee's is about what we experience at all of them. Good food and a good price. Comfortable, relaxing family-friendly environment. Our server was cheerful, friendly and helpful.
3 customers for lunch. we spent $37+. I had an $8 off coupon. The waiter said that the coupon could not be used because 2 of us ordered burgers. I have the coupon in front of me and it doesn't say anything about this. I feel cheated.
I had the rigatoni smoked chicken, and it was absolutely amazing! I've been craving it for a week now. A little pricey for my pockets, but you get what you pay for. Service was excellent. No complaints here.
If you are looking for quick service, a polite server that will make sure you are pleased with there service and delicious food. Moon valley cafe is the place to go. I highly recommend this cafe!
I went to have dinner, I am on the phone with my client who is cancelling a project. A server comes up to me , I point to the Bluetooth headset and whisper I am on the phone. He raises his voice and states SIR over and over again until it was a yell. People now look up and my client is asked , " what's going on." I move away from the server to a quiet area and continue with my client. The server was screaming why? I put a tray in a clean area he was closing the section. Why he could not wait a moment is a mystery. I finish the call and go back to the buffet, where the server states, " never-mind." I ask his name to which turns and walks away. I ask for a Manger who listens as I explainable says, " customers don't always treat us good. But I talked to him". I asked what does other customers have to do with this issue? Confused, I asked before eating to refund me and I left. Poor management, employees can scream at customers wow.....would not recommend. 715 pm
