We weren't served our dinner until 2 hours after our reservation. The lamb chops, at $32, were the worst I've ever had! It had a very spicy crust. The only things I enjoyed were the bisque and the bread. The waiter was offended that I would dare to complain and never asked the owner to come over (or else she... More

I'm pleased to say the food and service are back to the good ole' days, where the tantalizing meals are a delight for your palate. It was extremely busy, but service never waned in any way. Courses were delivered at appropriate intervals without feeling rushed. Our waitress Cindi was very pleasant and attentive. We had a hiatus from this restaurant... More

My family and I decided to go out for a meal after visiting the botanical gardens. Big mistake! Our reservations were for 7:30 and we did not get seated until 8:00. We ordered appetizers which took at least 45 minutes. They were out of the wine the waiter suggested and we did not get our meal unti 9:30. Although the... More

The beets were crunchy, the mango was tasteless and crunchy. I didn't see any quinoa. It was edible but not enjoyable, the greens were fresh. I eat gluten free and vegetarian so menu options are slim. When I do find something I can order I am excited. This turned my dining experience sour. We were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary... More

Have been there for a few parties and had dinner there a couple of times. The last time was on a Saturday night and it was clear there was something seriously wrong. They just didn't have enough help. The waitress was a very nice and really tried but it was crowded and the kitchen made the wrong order so one... More

I was here around 10 years ago and was not impressed with their food or seasoning. However, we were here last night and was pleasantly surprised how great the food was and service! My husband had the stuffed pork chop and I had the steak. Both equally amazing and good portion. Only complaint it was crowded and seating was tight.... More

We haven't been to Curly's for quite a while, and discovered that some of our long time favorites are no longer on the menu. That said, what we did have was very good, but not what we had been looking forward to eating. Nevertheless, we'll be returning.

Our meals came out a little slowly, but overall the dinner was very, very good. Our waiter was beyond competent and explained the delay. Food was good, my veggies were a cooler than my entree, and portions were smallish as far as our fish orders.

My friend and I meet at Curly's once a month for a work lunch, and we are more than satisfied every time. They have an excellent menu with a lot of variety, and they also have a great beer/wine list for when we don't have to head back to work after lunch! The service is quick and accurate, and the...
