The location is very nice, the service is mediocre and the food is just average. Maybe I expected too much but considering the prices I wanted to have a delicious meal and not something that was bland and could have been served at a fast...More

Been here before and was worth going back. Up front is a bar with good drinks and a decent happy hour menu, usually with a 2 piece band playing. Very casual and nice with some outside seating for the right night. But the real deal...More

My husband and I decided to have a lunch date today. After going through the list of regular places I suggested Herringbone, to which he had not yet been, but I’d enjoyed lunch with friends several times. He checked out the menu online, saw the...More

Second time here. We won't be back. Ambiance is great with the lit tree courtyard setting. Not a big fan of the appetizers/salads. Whole Branzino was good; Halibut tasty but tiny and my gluten-free modification came with only a handful of cut up asparagus. Desserts...More

The atmosphere was fantastic and the service was great. We ordered a hodge-podge of appetizers and some were better than others. The brussel sprouts were amazing - the addition of vinegar really elevated the side dish. We also enjoyed the tomato salad and spot prawns....More
