We came in on a Saturday a little earlier then our reservation to have a cocktail at the bar first but ended up having dinner there. Laura the bartender was amazing. She was incredibly knowledgeable with a great personality and took the most amazing are of us. We had the Burrata appetizer and a a harvest salad to start, both dish were insane. For dinner we split a 14oz NY, Rockfish and a crab cake all of which were absolutely delicious. We are already looking forward to coming back. Thanks

Our New Years Eve dinner at Cunningham's was quiet simply awesome. Perfect sized portions, delicious, great wine pairings etc.... too often special occasions menus are over priced and ordinary. At a Cunningham's it was neither. Great service from the entire staff. Cheers 🍷

We eat here often and brought our son who was visiting from out of town. It was a busy night, but our server was attentive just the right amount and kept our water glasses full and appeared to be equally helpful to all his tables. The seasonal menu included a lovely beet salad and a velvety and unusually flavorful butternut squash soup. We all tried fish from the grill having never tried grilled fish here before. The bronzini were prepared whole with small tomatoes and herbs around, tender and perfectly cooked. The rockfish was a good portion with accompanying vegetables, was slightly on the dry side, but was very flavorful with the grill cooking. As always, the assorted breads from Cunningham's bakery were outstanding. We liked dining in the booths for a more casual feel, though if you have a boisterous party nearby, it can get a little noisy. A very nice mid-week meal overall.

The fact that we dined of a Living Social menu felt a little awkward and perhaps diminished the experience. If I'm going to use a Promo I would like to feel that the experience was not being trimmed down in value and in substance. The fact that the promotional value of the deal was only $19 on a $70 purchase was disappointing - most places reduce the price by 40 -50 percent on promos.

We selected this restaurant to celebrate a birthday as a special occasion and it was a big failure.
It took more than 30 minutes before we were able to place an order and our waitress did not know how to open a bottle of wine. I addressed our issues with the manager on duty and he comped our meal but never aknowledged the problem or offered a warm apology. I was addressed multiple times as "my friend" and despite wearing a suit, the manager had a loud set of keyes hanging from his belt. This is definitely not the service level we were expecting and we will not be back.

The BBQ chicken flatbread pizza was fabulous, with the BBQ flavor on the pulled chicken rather than an entire pizza slathered in bbq sauce as it is served at chain restaurants. My teenagers devoured it, as did I. The crispy chicken was also delicious but the cold marinated vegetables accompanying it were not to my or my teens' taste. The family is not a fan of the harder artisan breads served in the breadbasket; hoping for some softer rolls or bread in the future. We will be back!

Overall, a great dining experience. Only regret: went for the pork chops, which was an expensive meal that was instantly forgettable. Disappointing. But the appetizers, soup, and other meals were outstanding. This is a fine restaurant.

The services hen we arrived and the bar were very welcoming. Perfect Old Fashions! Our dining server was great. She made sure we were well cared for even stealing the whipped cream from the pastry chef when it was needed for an Irish Coffee! The short ribs and the shrimp and grits were quite good.

I love this restaurant. Great food, superb service, very comfortable seating and surroundings.
Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
My sons are food lovers and go out of their way to seek out the finest restaurants and they too were impressed!

I've always passed the restaurant and decided to set a reservation to try it out. The cuisine is farm to table and the flavors are amazing. Everything tasted fresh and was served in a visually creative way. The tasting menu was reasonably priced and provides an appetizer, entree and dessert. For the quality of the food the prices were absolutely reasonable and worth it! Will definitely be going again.

I think some items were good, oysters, tuna app, beer salad was weak not enough flavor, got a read wine sangria made with Bloody Mary mix, waiter forgot shrimp and pork belly dumplings, Irish whiskey mule was really good, goat cheese flat bread was surberb, then ordered BBQ chicken flatbread and carne flatbread were not worth eating, apple crisp was not hot when served

This was not our first visit to Cunningham's. As in other visits the food was quite good. I had the fried oysters and the short rib which were both delicious. The service on this occasion was not great. The waiter seemed stressed. He took our drink orders and it took forever for the drinks to arrive. He also kept asking me if he got my order right like he was second guessing himself. Perhaps it was not his night!

Seasonal menu options were delicious - took a few of the server's recommendations, and none of them disappointed. Really enjoyed the seasonal burrata with butternut squash, arugula and granola, as well as the 14oz rib eye special and pumpkin scallops risotto.

Although we requested in our Open Table reservation "a quiet table, please," we were inexplicably seated next to a noisy group of birthday celebrators. Does anyone read these notes? It was a 10 p.m. seating and plenty of better choices were available. Food and wine were fine, although using an electronic tablet instead of a traditional printed wine list was awkward and off-putting. Even so, the first bottle we ordered turned out not to be available. Some times new technology is not an improvement.

The food was good and the service was good, but the restaurant was freezing. They said they weren't able to move us to a different table because they had other reservations coming in. I wore my coat while I ate. If I go back, it will be in the summer.

This was impeccable service with wait staff knowledge of menu items and personal recommendations on wine and appetizer/dessert selections. It was a special occasion for us, but we would not hesitate to come in a more casual dress mode. Second time here--we'll be back for sure!

what a disappointment! great word of mouth which never materialized in reality. Impossible parking in the area and no valet parking attendant . As a handicapped individual walking up and down the stairs outside was not enjoyable - when mentioned no attendant was greeted with an offhanded shrug. Food was mixed bag - really over-reaching and cutesy menu - more misses than hits. Overpriced for what was ordered. Perhaps dining in New York has left me jaded on what to expect in a good restaurant. There are a number of much better choices in the area... don't waste your time and money here

Overall the food was flavorful HOWEVER any good chef should know that you shouldn't cook a fish like a Bronzini with the skin on and then float it in a gallon of liquid on the plate! The liquid makes the skin soggy and inedible and just a mess to eat. Yuck!

My wife and I had an AWESOME experience and dinner the other night. One of the BEST things we tried was the Fall Burratta. Simply OUTSTANDING. The creamyness of the Burrata spread on Pesto coated crispy flatbread with arugula and vinegrette. OUT of this world. Charcuterie Plate, ditto !!!!!!! The Chef, Jay, came out of the Kitchen to talk to us. NICE. Our Bartender/Server Chris was excellent. We will be back real soon. An AWESOME meal.

We had a very enjoyable company dinner. Great menu, outstanding service. Very convenient valet parking. Show your valet ticket to the hostess upon departure and your warm car will be waiting for you when you're ready to leave.

Had dinner with a friend so we could catch up with each other. Our waiter greeted us, then allowed us the time we needed to look at the menu and talk a bit before placing our order. The food was well prepared and we enjoyed a variety of dishes and enjoyed them all.
