    Service was the only good thing I can say about this restaurant, for this being my very first time dining there I can say that it will definitely be my last. Food was over cooked my wife’s stuffed salmon was so dry and the noise was ridiculous, I need not go on just know that we were totally unsatisfied with the experience.

    Cons: very rude and disrespectful "hostess". I reserved a table for 7 in the veranda. We were on time. She seated another group there, because they arrived 5 minutes before us. The staff was dressed inappropriately. Someone even had on flip flops. Strawberry lemonade was so sweet it was undrinkable. Food was loaded with salt. Turkey wings had feathers on them. Hot chicken was dry. Will not support this establishment. Management should train staff. Pro: servers were courteous.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Everything was cooked perfectly and our server Ty was awesome. My only complaint was that I asked for a dish of ice cream and even paid for it. I didn’t get it. It didn’t cross my mind until I got home. We were distracted in celebrating my husband’s birthday.

    I was expecting a little more ambiance for what the prices where on the menus. I'm not a decorator but my friend and I saw so much potential that Relish could have. It's a very popular restaurant for that area and I'm sure people come from all areas of the city to eat there. Even Pastor Waller gave it a play one Sunday morning.

    Food was excellent Ran out of steak Didn’t allow substitutes but gave me sides on the house because they were out of steak The house band was extremely entertaining. They were loud but not enough that I wouldn’t enjoy but I can see how someone would think it’s too loud Only Thing was they’re were people at the bar who began line dancing near my table it just needs to be a designated area that people can go to where they’re not close to people trying to eat Other than that the atmosphere was lit I would definitely come back

    We absolutely love this place. One of the most consistent venues we like to frequent. The menu is fantastic and cocktails are reasonable and good. Reasonable on wine as well. Citrus salmon salad for lunch, grilled artichoke and Chicken Paillard for dinner are all winners. Always really good and consistent.

    They ran out of several dishes. Server was nice but the service was slow. Would probably give the place a second chance, but my luck was they had run out of the things I wanted so I did not enjoy the meal as much as I would have.

    Our reservation was for 6:00pm. Almost every item on the menu was old out, the chicken (entree) and corn bread were dry, the sides were cold, the potato salad was nasty, the yams taste like they came from a can the turkey wings were just ok. I ordered two portions of deviled eggs with shrimp and one order came out without shrimp (because they ran out and never told me) but I was still charged the full price for the appetizer. I was extremely disappointed as I had been here several times before and the food was fabulous but on Father’s Day 2022 EVERYTHING was horrible! I will NOT go back 😔

    They didn’t substitute sides and it was hard to find an entree my handicapped husband would eat. There was something on every entree he didn’t or couldn’t eat. I took him there for Fathers Day so I was disappointed about that.

    I was really sad to hear Warmdaddy’s was closed but then read that Relish had the same owners and similar menu. I made out reservations on OpenTable. I arrived a little past the 15 min window due to traffic. I called and the hostess said come anyway. I’ll make sure you still have a table. She was so kind and helpful. My friends last minute brought an extra person and the hostess also was able to accommodate 4 people instead of 3. Very impressed by her care and customer service. Food was delicious and wait time was reasonable. Music was on point. This location is a 45+ min drive from where I live and I will definitely be back.

    Host was exceptional and impeccable customer service. Food was great! Just a little salty for my mom but otherwise it did not disappoint. Venue needs a little renovation. However, once you step into the inner part of the restaurant it’s decent. Live music was an added bonus and very entertaining.
