Don't Like "New" Menu

Fluid used to be our favorite restaurant but a menu change last fall changed that. Now we can hardly find anything we want for dinner on the menu. The food and service are still fine but our favorite items are gone from the menu and the menu choices are just not to our liking anymore.

Stopped by at 11:00am this past Sunday for breakfast not realizing the restaurant is currently not open for breakfast. Could have been a deal breaker but it was almost noon so I tried the Stilton Blue Cheese & Bacon Salad as my heart was set on some bacon! Nicely balanced fresh delicate salad with the pop of blue cheese, smoky... More

I have been to this restaurant twice and both times it was fantastic. The latest time we tried the "Big $ss Caesar" and had the calamari and gourmet pizza. Delicious caesar, comes with an appetizer's worth of snacks on it (warning though, spicy hot pickled pepper -- delicious but not for the faint of heart). The calamari is some of... More

Came in yesterday afternoon by myself and ordered the Pad Thai. Minor mishap with the preparation of the meal but the steps my server and the manager made to make things right was beyond my expectations. This is how a restaurant should operate. Will be back in time for the summer patio!

I came in with my friends for an early dinner on Sunday. My waitress Lisa knew our names and what we wanted to drink, since she has had us a couple times. Our drinks were never empty and she was always around to order more 'grub'. Very rare to find a waitress that is so personable and caring, I will... More
