618 was recommended by a friend and was our first time there. I must say I was quite pleased. It is not a high end place but would say it is a niche bracket restaurant that is just below high end and clearly above upper quality chain like restaurants (eg bone fish, brio, etc). In short, it was very good value and would definitely go back .

Requested the bar area thinking it would be a little more intimate. The noise level started out reasonable, but it did elevate and it was difficult to talk to each other. We were a party of four. The food was very good. Steak and drinks were pricey. We spent around $500 for four. The service was fine, a little slow. I think she had the entire bar area. When paying those prices you expect the service to be a little more refined than it is here.

Amazing dinner with even more outstanding service. Celebrating a friend's birthday and based on all of the reviews we were so excited to dine at 618. Exceeded expectations. Cannot wait to return. All the food was delicious. We all loved our dishes. The cod, the salmon and the skirt steak. We shared the stuffed mushrooms and topped it all off with the cookies stuffed with ice cream (mini Chipwhich deliciousness!) with whipped cream to dip in warm nutella....Scrumptious!

We had a very nice experience at 618. We were seated under the faux fireplace. It was cozy and dimly lit. We ordered a goat cheese and arugula salad. It was quite tasty. My husband and I ordered the bronzino and really enjoyed the sauce it was prepared in. Our waitress was very thoughtful and attentive. We shared a chocolate dessert that was rich and decadent.

618 is my favorite restaurant in the area. The food is off the charts, the service is amazing and the drinks are delicious too! It’s a wonderful restaurant for date night or to celebrate a special occasion with the family. It will become a staple of your restaurant choices once you try it for the first time!

We have never disappointed this restaurant. My husband and I dined there with my brother-in-law and his wife on Friday night. We enjoyed our entrees three of which were from the menu (bronzino, skirt steak, and cod). My sister-in-law enjoyed the Steele head trout which was one of the specials. Thank you to our server,Aaron, who was very personable and attentive.

Great service and awesome food. The shrimp and grits was impressive good. Keep in mind that the menu on opentable is outdated! Good variety of wine but pricey, stick with the cocktails. Saturday night might be a bit crowed, so it was loud. But overall a good experience. Will definitely go back.

Always good! One of our favorite places to go! The food is excellent and able to meet our special dietary needs , we have one vegetarian and one gluten free!
Sat outside and it was so relaxing, service was a little slow ...maybe because we were only table outside at one point. Usually efficient service. A bit pricey but worth it if you are looking for a superb meal and night out!

Normally, I pick the restaurants me and my wife go to, not for the lack of giving her the opportunity to do so, but she just trusts me to choose wisely. Well, this time my wife pick 618 for my birthday dinner, and I have to say she is really good at picking a winner.
First, the room was packed and loud, but due to strategically placed acoustic tiles on the walls, we were able to conduct a very comfortable conversation.
Second, our waiter Dennis was very attentive and friendly, and checked on us often but without being annoying.
The third and most important thing, the food, was wonderfully prepared, very tasty, and served hot. The pork belly and sausage stuffed mushroom appetizers were delicious, my wife's lobster ravioli was a hit, and my pappardelle bolognese was creamy and flavorful. We topped off the meal with a savory pecan toffee cake and whipped cream which was served warm and was delightful.
This restaurant was a great find and we will add it to our short list of favorites.

Well done!!

The food and drinks were excellent. The waiter was friendly and attentive. However, there was a party going on upstairs and it sounded as if they were going to fall through the ceiling! It did become annoying at times. It’s a shame because it did put a damper on the evening.

Everything was wonderful, but, the noise was really bad. Couldn’t hear the two other guests sitting across from me. In addition, there was a party going on upstairs which, while not too bad, added to our inability to hear. However, I would like to reiterate the beginning comments. The food, the service, the ambience
was excellent!

Though surroundings are “ comfortably” upscale , noise levels were intolerable , without proper acoustics and an upstairs party venue which sounded as if cattle were running back and forth. As to the food , though the quality is apparent way to heavy handed with salt on both chicken and fish dishes ordered and I suspect on others as well.

My girlfriend and I went to dinner for the oyster promo Friday night and we had an amazing time and dinner. The service was amazing we had Aaron and James as a server. The staff really treat you like you are coming to their house for dinner. So friendly and really take pride in their job. I commend the management because the staff really went above and beyond. The oyster girls Samantha and Jessica were soo sweet and really did a good job with the oysters.. we had several! We even requested the same server for my girlfriends birthday dinner she is having there in November.
