I chose to celebrate at RPM for my husbands birthday and we really enjoyed our experience. The service and the food were amazing. We will definitely be back.

We loved celebrating our special night at RPM. The Flambé for dessert was extra wonderful.

Everything was pretty good { food / service/ atmosphere }
the only thing that was a head-scratcher was the hostess seating us extremely close to a large round that was filled by 6 loud and obnoxious people. And when I say we were close I mean when one of them backed out her chair it hit our table & almost knocked everything over...

Very disappointing! We arrived early so we went to the bar for a drink. First mistake.

Service: Bartender (especially) and host staff couldn't have cared less about us. Waiter was accommodating but was a bit put-off by an allergy request at our table (partly our fault but still).
Food: The appetizers were great but my dinner was like pasta in a bowl of grease; not butter or olive oil--just greasy.
Overall: We all agreed that we expected, and did not receive, exceptional service from the RPM name and for the price we would go somewhere else next time.

Anniversary! Amazing experience. Not our first time dining and we always have a great meal. And the service from the server to the managers is exceptional.

We had a wonderful time! We will most definitely be back! There was a minor emergency that caused us to need to evacuate, but the staff was amazing and so attentive once we were allowed back inside :). The food was also excellent and not as expensive as one would expect from such a high class place. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating!

Absolutely love everything about this restaurant! The chef made us a special order of Tuna Crudo (it isn’t on the menu anymore) because we come so often and we’re sad to see it removed. AMAZING service and attention to detail. We will be back soon :)

Couldn’t have been better for our 20th anniversary. We were greeted with congratulations and given best wishes on our departure. Falling in love with those brussel sprouts. It was a team effort and made the night even better.

Were meeting with a cousin from out of town. He was staying near RPM so it was a good choice for us. Terrance was our waiter and he was excellent!

All of the food was excellent, except the kale and spinach salad was way overdressed, soaked in the dressing, way to heavy, which was really surprising given how excellent everything else was. That's a miss for the kitchen.
