Rye Ratings and Reviews
Service was slow. More importantly the food was just okay. There is not much value here. They think highly of their main course and give you little or nothing on the side, and if so it's not much, even when included with your entree. My fish was okay, but nothing special. And the rice that was with it was definitely nothing to write home about, I even think it was under cooked. Should rice be crunchy? Better to spend this amount of money elsewhere.
I had only been to Rye for lunch before and was anxious to try it out for dinner. Happy to get an outside table - it was a very pleasant evening and, frankly the inside of the restaurant was very noisy and very cold. Our waiter seemed pretty knowledgeable and made some great recommendations - but follow up service was very slow for our drinks and food. Drinks and wine were good; salad and sides were delicious, and my friend's trout was excellent . However the ribeye steak that my husband and I shared, as welll as the ribeye my friend ordered, was nothing short of terrible. For $50 at a restaurant that prides itself on locally grown fare, I expect a pretty darn good steak. I ordered mine medium rare and it was barely seared on the outside and completely raw on the inside. Since my husband and I were sharing, we had cut it in half which is the way that brought it back to the table - I honestly expected a new steak. It was adequately cooked the second time around but it was the toughest steak I've ever ordered in a restaurant. When I mentioned to our waiter that it wasn't really up to par he didn't ask any questions, appogizr or offer another option - he just moved on to dessert and after dinner drinks. Just thought the owners should know - I really expected better food and service from this place. If I go back I surely won't order a steak!
The food was good. The service was perhaps appropriate for the environment - always interesting with your server leads with "And we have no specials" and walks away. We tried both the hanger steak entrees. They were both good. It was seriously packed - tables very close to each other and incredibly loud. I'm not sure if we actually heard each other or not during lunch. The pricing was a bit higher than the quality in my opinion - I did not find the menu incredibly special. For all the discussion about using local seasonal veggies and what not - I think that was probably impossible. It appeared to include completely out of season produce. Not sure where the steak came from - nothing fancy there. It was a decent lunch - I would not recommend due to the noise.
Normally we have a great meal at Rye... But this time my wife's Chicken Salad was not good. The greens were dressed with a cloyingly sweet vinaigrette... And there were potatoes in the salad, and not good ones. Very underseasoned potatoes. My Steak & Eggs was excellent. It's a fabulous restaurant, and we will return, but that chicken salad needs serious recipe revamp!
Less than stellar service. Made a reservation for 6 and called to see if I could change to 8 kind of last minute and they couldn’t accommodate which was not a big deal but the guy who answered the phone hung up on me and I needed to call back and make sure I still had at least my reservation for 6.
While at the restaurant the waitress was border line rude and seemed as though she did not enjoy her job at all. I was surprised at her lack of menu knowledge.
The food was ok. For the price I expected quite a bit better. I have eaten here in the past and had a decent experience but I doubt I return unless it is to just have a few drinks at the bar.
Birthday dinner for my husband at Rye tonight with some friends. I was bowled over by our evening. Started with a delicious Brut Rose. Appetizers were the blue crab hushpuppies and the burnt end toast. Highly recommend both. Monday night is "steak night" so the 4 of us ordered steaks. The steak dinner comes with a salad, steak, side dish and a slice of pie. Wow!-isn't a strong enough exclamation. They don't phone-in any part of this dinner. The wedge salad was yummy, Maytag blue? Yeah! The ceasar was yummy and The house salad was huge! Note to the restaurant, cracked pepper on the salads would have been delicious. The ribeye was so flavorful and our guests raved about the hanger steak. The roasted cauliflower side was just delicious. Other sides at the table were mashed, loaded baked, and grits. We also ordered a fried chicken dinner to share. Delicious, light(if that's possible), crispy fried chicken. It needed a sprinkle of salt imo but still, every bit as good as the north end. Everything was just so good! Then they bring you a slice of pie. Omg.... husband had lemon meringue, guests had banana cream and I had the sugar pie...a custard pie with a creme brulee sugar crust...OMG! Our server was having an off night.. popped our wine and it sprayed all over the table...dropped a plate from our table and splashed salad dressing on another guest...and it was still one of the best dining experiences ive had in ages. Just go...soon.
Our brunch at Rye was unpleasant from the start! We had a reservation for 3, requesting a booth. We arrived about 15 minutes early, so we expected a small wait. The restaurant was not even half full and there was an empty booth. We were told they would have to ready a table for us, even though half the tables were unoccupied. About 20 minutes into our wait, the hostess said they were getting a table ready for us. Naturally, this table had been empty from the moment we entered the place! I reminded the hostess that we would like a booth, and she told me the booth was under a reservation. I said, "well, I also requested a booth!" Her reply was to the effect that the booths were for 6 people. I pointed out to her that one of the booths had 3 people at it and another, two. She asked me to wait and went to talk to the supervisor. She came back to us and "let" us have the booth. Ok, I let that go. We were seated and given menus. After a fairly long wait, a waiter came over and toyok our drink order. He was unfriendly at best. We were quite hungry, and ordered an order of apple donut/fritters. I asked him to hold the powdered sugar, if they dust the top of their donuts. He snidely told me they did not. Guess what was on the top of our donuts? Powdered sugar! The scrambled eggs I ordered were served to me cold, and the server didn't check on us after receiving our food for 10-15 minutes, so I told him about the eggs, but told him not to remake them at that late time. I would not go back to this place. The haughty waiter, and unyielding hostess make this place unpleasant. I probably gave them too many stars.
We enjoyed everything on our first visit to Rye! The whipped goat cheese was incredible. We stayed with appetizers for our "main meals." The wings were some of the best we've had, and the BBQ shrimp was worth the mess! 😊 We also had a side of mac and cheese that did not disappoint. We finished off with a slice of tart cherry pie with bourbon vanilla ice cream. We will definitely be back!
We requested outdoor seating and really happy that we did. The area was very nice and quiet with a nice sofa seating area and TV's along with various tables and chairs. It was our 15th anniversary and we were impressed with the extensive wine and beer list. The bottle of wine we ordered was fantastic as was the food and dessert. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The overall experience was excellent.
