The quality of food and service at this place is going down. I used to love coming here and enjoying their gluten free options, but the poor customer service is convincing me not to come back anymore. Our waitress today named Reema was very unprofessional and was not attentive at all. I brought some out-of-town visitors to try my favorite dishes and they weren’t impressed with the food or service. We waited way too long for our food and some items like our gluten free pitas were so cold we had to ask them to warm them up. Must be poor management.

Food was good and as expected. Service was very slow considering the small number of customers dining that night. Disappointed after always recommending the restaurant for both food and service.

This place used to be our neighborhood go to but it has really fallen in quality of food. We ordered a number of regular dishes and they all fell short, even the squash pie which has been a spectacular fall dessert. Probably was our last visit to TF until something changes. Very nice server.

I ordered the sea bass which was very disappointing. Not only did it not appear to be sea bass but it was a very thin dried out filet. Ordinarily sea bass is a very juicy and naturally oily fish. The veggies were good. Also The cushion on the outside bench was apparently missing some springs so the seat sunk very low. We got the impression it has been that way a while. I’m not sure why you would seat anyone there.

Been here several times and never had this problem so was a bit frustrating/strange to experience this. Basically the waitress was hardly around and we were constantly asking where she was. She was super nice whenever she was at our table but our food was taking longer than usual (and it was not super busy) and had to wait several times to be waited on. So nothing about the waitress personally just not attentive/available like she should have been.

Our server was kind and mostly helpful, the food was good (although painfully slow to come out). Not expecting fast food by any means, would just like it to take less than 40 minutes when you get there after the lunch rush and over half the restaurant is empty. Still a good experience and I would t be opposed to going back next time I’m near one.

There staff could use some coaching. There literally was one occupied table and they were going to sit us right next to them. As I was waiting for the other person to arrive, the waitress brought me my drink and walked away. I realized she didn't bring me a straw and I tried to get her attention but she was too busy talking to other employees at the hostess podium. It was about 15 minutes before I could get anyone's attention to get a straw....remember there was only one other occupied table inside. At least the food was good!
