Hutch Ratings and Reviews
Server was nervous and did not time our meal well at all ... brought out a bunch of things at once, and so our lobster mac & cheese got cold. Food was average but not outstanding. Error on our bill took a while to fix and just seemed to be a lack of quality overall in the experience.
We had a Groupon that was expiring, which is why we went ... would not go back.
Overall my experience was adequate however our server was clearly trying to very quickly turn the table and when we weren't ready to order immediately he told us we only have 90 minutes at this table so we should decide. This is not a bottomless brunch or any other type of restaurant with a dedicated time limit. It changed how I think about this restaurant. My past experiences here have been better. Perhaps just a cranky server. Great mimosas. Good food.
Hutch did a great job accommodating us as a large table of 12 and on short notice (the day before). We only waited a short time after our rez to be seated, service was prompt on taking orders, but not rushed, and the food timely. This in the midst of a very lively time of day (Saturday brunch on St. Patty's celebration day). The fried pickle on the bloody was a nice touch. Everyone seemed pleased with their order and they had no problem splitting the check about 6 ways. Thanks!
Been there many times, a little disappointing this time. Food was bland. Both of us walked away with the same thoughts. Never have been disappointed but this time was different. We had a training waiter and his trainee was not very observant. Maybe next time.
Three girlfriends and I went to Hutch for brunch on a Saturday on a recommendation from my sister who lives near there. It was SPECTACULAR. The mimosas were delish, our entrees were excellent, the server was friendly and attentive. Would absolutely recommend.
The food was great and so were the drinks! There was a bottle of Champagne per carafe of Mimosa (score) service good be worked on. The waitress was nice but in a big group setting her helpers were not good with identifying who order specific items which caused a bit of a hiccup in or group. But she was super sweet and made up for the mistake. Overall still a good place to visit and have fun. Definitely going back.
I had a reservation at 11 and arrived a little early - the hostess asked us to wait a few minutes for our table to be ready. Ok, that's fine, my party and I waited until 11 (there were 3 of us total). Around 11:05 I approached the hostess again and asked if our table was ready. She looked a bit surprised and had clearly just given our table to a different group of people. Instead of admitting fault, she tried to seat us at a two-top table, which was awkwardly placed in the dining room, kind of in the way of everything and clearly didn't fit 3 people comfortably. I realize that they were extremely busy, but the hostess was rude when I asked her if it would be alright if we waited for a larger table, since we were celebrating a birthday and I didn't want to be even more annoyed during this experience. So we waited another 20 minutes past our reservation for a table. Mind you, this restaurant has zero space for people to wait to be seated, yet they make people stand awkwardly in the bar area and near the hostess stand for a table (I think you can give them your number and they'll text you when your table is ready, but I was not given this option, and it shouldn't have been necessary since I had a reservation). I will say that the food at Hutch is fantastic, but I'd rather go somewhere else where they don't cram guests into the dining room and waiting area. What makes the least sense is the service is slow - you'd think they would want to get people in and out fast!
We decided to try Hutch since it was next door to the place we went the night before for my birthday, the service was outstanding and the food was really good and very well priced. I ended up having the special which was a thick pork chop and side salad with mash potatoes. The Lobster nachos where also a huge surprise and very very good. We will be coming back for dinner here.
Have been here in the past and loved it. This time was a different story. Sometimes it's one thing that can take your dinning experience from AWESOME to ok. I'll make it short and to the point. I ordered the Baseball Steak and Risotto. I ordered the steak medium rare. It came out well done. Then I had to flag the server down to let him know. It took another 25 minutes to get a new meal which was cooked to the correct temperature. The restaurant was about 20% seated and my date ordered chicken (which came out perfect).
I think it was the manager that brought my meal back out and apologized for overcooking the steak. Then walked away. If it were me I would have waited till I cut into it but he had confidence! It was perfect. :)
Because I was on a date and we had someplace to go...I boxed up most of it and took it home. That said, I did receive a bill with no mention of a make good or reduction. As I always do, I didn't complain and tipped well.
Please eat at Hutch. I like their food and have had much better experiences there. Just make sure they understand that the Baseball Steak shouldn't be cooked like a baseball! :)
I love this place. Been here twice and each time I always have been taken care of by great friendly staff. The brunch menu is delicious. I've tried the chilaquiles and fried chicken and biscuit meal with hash browns. The weekday brunch mimosa special is amazing. I have told all my friends about Hutch, and I'm slowly bringing them all in with me. I've heard the weekends get very busy, so I'm usually there during the week.
The food was really good and very tasty. However, we went for restaurant week and we were dissatisfied with the portion sizes. The apps ( tots & beignets ) were a 1/2 portion which the waiter said, and I think that was the perfect amount. The entree on the other hand not as good. My boyfriend got the corned beef hash based on a picture he saw because the portion sized looked hearty. What he got was not the same. He got just a few pieces of corned beef and literally ate the whole thing in like 3-4 bites. He ended up finishing my meal. I wish I had taken a picture or said something about the portion size. I am not sure if this was because they were busy or we did restaurant week, but the portion sizes here were a little small for our liking.
Had to wait despite having reservations, very loud, food was ok, service slow...was asked to leave by the server because of "limited seating availability" and because "lots of people are waiting." We were there for less than an hour, not including the 30 minutes we had to wait for a table despite having reservations. The server would not leave my table until we stood up and put on our coats. Awful etiquette, will not be returning.
Had a reservation and we were seated promptly. Waitress came an took drink orders quickly, and that was the last of the decent service. Had to flag down the waitress to get a second drink as she was avoiding eye contact because the service was so slow. She walked by the table 20 times but never stopped to take a second drink order or to apologize for the slow service. Dinner took almost an hour from order to delivery.! Food was really good, but won't go back.
This was our first visit to the Hutch. We came on a Friday night and the restaurant was surprisingly empty for such a prime location. The drinks were tasty and well thought out, but the food was average. My bistro bowl with salmon was fairly tasteless and the chopped beet and kale salad had 2 or 3 small beets. The chopped salad was decent, but, overall, there was just something missing. For dessert, our enthusiastic server recommended the cherry pie a la mode, which is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the ice cream had that 6-month old freezer burn taste, effectively ruining the dish. I was excited about finding a good meal of comfort food, but, in the end, was left wanting more.
I've passed this spot for a number of years and always noticed it seemed crowded. When I got a Groupon, I decided to try it. So glad I did. Food was really great -- creative and yummy. I had the grilled meatloaf with chive mash potatoes -- perfect comfort food on a crappy winter night. My girlfriend had the panko chicken which she said was terrific. Definitely going back!
We have been to Hutch on numerous occasions and we were very disappointed with the food this time around. Most of our meals were not cooked according to our request and many of the meals came out lukewarm, at best. One of our party said something to the server about the way the food was cooked and the restaurant was nice enough to comp his meal. That level of concern and service is what we are used to when we eat at Hutch. We have never had a meal as poorly done as the one we had yesterday. We will certainly go back again because Hutch has generally done a good job with the food and the service. Service was still strong yesterday, but the quality of the food was very poor and inconsistent.
