This dining experience was wonderful after a long pause in going out to dinner again, and it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. The service and food were outstanding, and we are already looking forward to returning very soon. Delicious stuffed mushrooms and BBQ shrimp & grits appetizers, great pasta bolognese, and short rib dinners. Excellent warm sticky toffee cake (unbelievably good). Great night out.

Food was great. We enjoyed our meal. Service was outstanding. The waiters were excellent and obviously well trained. I would definitely return. Only negative comment was my kids ordered a bottle of champagne to be sent to our table as we were celebrating our anniversary. We never received it. We did not know this until the next day when our daughter asked about it. Not sure what happened. Otherwise it was an enjoyable evening

Excellent all around experience! The decor, friendliness of staff, food, & our wonderful server Karen are top notch. From the second we placed our reservation on OpenTable to the second we walked out of the restaurant, everything was outstanding!

I didn’t take any food pictures but our apps & entrees were perfect. I had the meatball app, which I never order out because let’s face it - we all think our meatballs are the best - and I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were! My husband had the simple salad which Karen recommended, & he loved it.

For our entrees, I had the pork chop & husband had the braised short ribs. Both were perfect.

We opted out on dessert (we were stuffed lol), but Karen surprised us with a celebratory vanilla sundae to commemorate our 26th wedding anniversary.

Karen and the entire staff gave us such a memorable experience, & we seriously can’t wait to go back! Next time, we’re bringing our friends because our evening was so exceptional & we’d like to share this gem of a restaurant!

Thanks to all at 618!

Food, ambiance, and service was on point. This particular might we celebrated a birthday and everything was fantastic. Our server was super sweet (wish i could recall her name). We arrived a little early so we sat at the new bar area. It really came out nice and we loved the drink options and cocktail menu.

First let me say that the food was very good - shrimp and grits app, Short Ribs and Pasta Purses were very tasty and just the right portion. In addition to the food, 1/2 price Wed Wine night is worth coming back for. Our server Cailin was cheerful and efficient and very earnest, especially since the kitchen apparently lost our ticket.
We arrived on time for a 6:45 reservation but we spent some time in the parking lot waiting for an open spot. We were seated at 7 PM and left just before 9 PM. Most of the time was spent waiting for our meal but the drinks, wine and bread kept us from getting grouchy. The noise level is hard on older ears. I have a thing about TVs in restaurants except at sports bars. The sound wasn't on but it was distracting. 618 keep up the good food and service and work on the wrinkles.

Very nice dinner sitting at the bar. Server / bartender was excellent. Drinks were spot on but pricey given the size. I don’t mind paying $15 for a cocktail but let’s make it a good sized drink. Crudo was over the top good. Get it! Crab cake was very good and the watermelon salad was also really well executed. Red snapper special was absolutely delicious. Was very pleased over all. Noisy on a Friday night.

Crab cakes were great. Artichoke appetizer was terrible. Branzino had bones in it. Place is beautiful and the people were very nice. Been many times and this was disappointing. Waiter was great. Did not explain the appetizer enough. It was artichokes in a broth not what I expected. Crab was very good and will go back.

We found the food to be very good however the portions were small and did not justify the price. Drinks were also expensive in relation to the pour. Restaurant was extremely noisy. We probably will not return.

My wife and I have been to banquets at 618, but have never eaten dinner there. We decided to finally go and experience the ambiance, service and excellent food. We arrived a little early for our reservation, but were seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and answered my wife’s questions patiently and thoroughly. We ordered the butterflied Brinzino and wild caught Salmon as our entrees and a side order of mashed potatoes. For dessert we shared the decadent chocolate cake and I had a very strong decaf coffee. The food was delicious and the cake was a home run. It was an enjoyable meal and we will be returning with friends real soon. 618 deserves the outstanding rating it has achieved.
