"My husband had the short ribs and was in love. My husband's appetizer was delicious scallops (2) I had 2 appetizers for dinner: grilled romaine with shrimp and beet salad, both of which were tasty and well sized. We didn't have any dessert. We had a reservation for 8 but weren't seated until 8:20. We had drinks at the bar which was fine, but I found the wait odd and wonder about their booking practices. Our waiter was pleasant but not conversant about the menu. I still think the food and ambiance is worth a return."

"Very nice. The waitress was attentive. A Cobb salad was loved. My turkey burger was to big to finish. Not my favorite choice that I've had there."

"Our party of four very much enjoyed our dinner. I opted for the pear salad and mussels and the rest of our group ordered mains:swordfish, chicken, pork chop. Everyone enjoyed their food and we bought the cheap wine,, which was just fine. We finished with warm almond cake and the dish of four ice creams. Definitely will return."

"Our lunch at Granite Hill was for a birthday and the age range went from 3 mo to Grandpa. We were seated at a round in the corner which was great. Our waiter was competent; not particularly friendly. The service was slow but it worked out for us. If we were there as a twosome, I think it would have felt really sluggish. I'm sorry they changed the decor which now is so bland as to be uninteresting. In the museum this seems a shame. The food itself was very good. There was no recognition of the birthday by the restaurant. There is a nice grown-up, serene atmosphere which we appreciated."

"I chose Redeye Grill because of its proximity to the theater we were going to following lunch. I've been there before and have always enjoyed it. This time 2 things did strike me: having to ask our servers for ketchup, etc. when it should have been served with the burger. They were so attentive and yet we had to track them down for small things. Also, I forgot how expensive it is. At least the food was excellent."
