    Good neighborhood restaurant. Food is good. They have reduced options and increased everything about $5/$6 dollars. $13.50 for a Jamerson

    It was very congested and loud in the dining room. Could not hear conversations at the table.

    Hello Laura, Thank you for reaching out to let us know about your recent experience with us. We apologize for any commotion in the dining room on your last visit. Unfortunately, St. Patrick's Weekend is by far our busiest of the year and it can be a bit difficult to make sure all guests use their indoor voices when they get their Irish up! I would always recommend a seat on our enclosed patio for the quietest possible dining option in the future. If you wouldn't mind responding here, we would love to put you in touch with our general manager to discuss in further detail and ensure we reserve the perfect table for your next visit. All the best, Emerald Rose Management

    Food was really good but the service was unsatisfactory. The server would be super nice to the tables around us but every once in a while when she came to our table she looked miserable and always took forever to get us our food. I wasn’t the only one who noticed her weird attitude towards us, my husband and my friend felt the same way.

    Good food, great service but extremely noisy. Very difficult to converse without yelling. However, that's to be expected for St Patrick's Day!

    Hello Tina, Thank you for your kind review! We agree, The Finn McCools, who played that evening rocked the house! Can't wait for next St. Patrick's Day to have them back again! We hope you'll join us again soon! All the best, Emerald Rose Management

    We have been coming here since they opened, and the corned beef has been amazing. Tonight we had trouble eating it. It was stringy, chewy, and overly salty. I had the Reuben and had trouble biting into the sandwich. I switched to a steak knife and fork and still had a bit of trouble with cutting it. My wife had the corned beef and cabbage and said it was too salty to eat.
    Emerald RoseResponded on March 9, 2024
    Good Afternoon, Thank you for reaching out to let us know about your recent experience with us. We truly apologize that your corned beef was not up to our usual standard. We pride ourselves for having the most tender and flavorful corned beef dinner and sandwiches you can find. We are aware of the issue you mentioned and have already corrected this clear error in preparation. As such, we would love to make it up to you. If you wouldn't mind responding here, we would love to put you in touch with our general manager to discuss further and work to make this right. We realize an apology will not change the result of this last visit; however, we would like to do everything we can to assist in making your next meal with us the best possible!

    Service was great, drinks were great and on the strong side. Our lobster bisque was delicious. It all went down hill when the beef Wellington hit the table. It was not a tenderloin cut it was either brisket or pot roast. It was over cooked and nothing I would compare to a normal Wellington. I was told it was their version on beef Wellington. Well at $46 it was far from worth it. Very disappointing and because of that it dragged my review down

    Hello Edzo, Thank you for reaching out to let us know about your recent experience with us. We pride ourselves in always striving to maintain the best cuisine and hospitality in the business, and clearly, we did not live up to our standards for your visit. While I can assure you our Wellingtons were our standard 8oz filets wrapped in puff pastry; I do apologize if yours was overcooked. We would have been happy to replace the item or remove it from your bill. If you wouldn't mind responding here, we would love to put you in touch with our general manager to discuss in further detail and work to make this right. We realize an apology will not change the result of this last visit; however, we would like to do everything we can to make it up to you. All the best, Emerald Rose Management
