Culinary Dropout Waterfront Ratings and Reviews
The service at Culinary Dropout was amazing! My husband mentioned to the host that it was our anniversary and at the end of our meal, they sent us a complimentary monkey bread. For the host to remember this and tell our server was above and beyond of what I would expect. The food was great, atmosphere was fun, and the service was top notch!
We have eaten many times in the past and loved everything about this place, however we were there for dinner on 4th of July and had a bad experience. I had a reservation and waited 45minutes past my reservation time for our table. Our salads were not to their usual standard. The guy who stands in front of the area where the food is placed for the servers to pick up orders was screaming at everyone through our entire meal. The night was a big disappointment
We had a very friendly waiter, but between he and the person that delivers the food, there were misses. Forks taken away with the eaten salad and not replaced with our entrees. Finally after 5 minutes I got up and walked up to a female waitress to get some forks and she looked at me like I asked for something they didn't have?! finally our waiter saw I was there and then found us forks in another 2 minutes. My husband ordered ribs. The table next to us, was given wipes and a bowl to place the bones. Not us! He used the napkin, but so much that the napkin was covered and of course got on his pants. When we were almost done, the waiter came and asked how we liked our dinner. Either short handed or not experienced enough
I always love going to Culinary Dropout. The food is delicious and they make great Old Fashioned's. It's consistent and always busy. If you plan on dining here, I recommend making a reservation. The bar fills up fast for happy hour and there is normally a wait for dinner.
The moment I walked in, the vibe was good. The staff was very friendly and professional, which led to a fun interaction. Allie was our server. She offered excellent suggestions, kept in contact throughout the meal, and was thoughtful enough to bring us drinks to go on a 117 degree day. The food was outstanding (the meatloaf and the chicken club, the fondue, and the monkey bread). I look forward to returning to try other items on the menu.
This location was wonderful. Right across the street from Fashion Square mall, it is a great place to grab a delicious meal. My wife and I visited for the dinner hour, and enjoyed the Ribs and Korean style Rib-eye Cap. Both were delicious, but neither stood out more than the pretzels and cheese sauce. Everything there was wonderful, including the service. I would definitely recommend this place and will be back to visit soon.
Made me feel like a little old lady! The music was so loud we asked twice to have it turned down. Even the manager agreed the music was too loud and hadn't been adjusted since the previous evening.
The server was working her second day and unfamiliar with the wine list. The bar man delivered Pinot Grigio and poured it into a glass of Chardonnay . Water was seldom refilled and once spilled over the table and onto packages below.
The food, at least, was very tasty. Go when the weather cools and you can sit outside.
We came here with 4 of us and the experience overall was solid. I really like the look and feel of the place. The hosts and server was very friendly. I really like the patio and decor inside. The food overall was good. The Korean ribeye cap was delicious, but the ribs were pretty basic. The sandwiches and salads that we ordered we're pretty decent, but nothing special. I would come back.
