We had dinner this time; our previous visit was for lunch. I can only comment on what we had and on the service, both of which were great. Fish tacos, fish and chips, fried green tomatoes, and Caesar salad (traditional dressing with anchovies!) were very pleasing. If you're driving through like we were, it's hard to find better in Gainesville.

Went there the other evening. Great service. It was very loud. I had a chicken dish. The chicken was a little stringy and the artichoke was a little chewy. It was seasoned well. As is the case parking downtown can sometimes be a challenge. There is a lot around the corner.

I've been to Recess several times and have enjoyed every visit. It can be found just off of the square and although parking in front of Recess is limited, they have a special parking area just next to the restaurant. The environment is modern-urban with brick walls, well upholstered seating and a great bar along one wall. The brick walls... More

Nice selection of food, fitting most tastes. Seafood, meats ... What you would expect. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. Restaurant seats a reasonable qty of diners, we did not have a wait to eat. Only negative was a waiter that really did not have act together. Failed to deliver 1 appetizer, not on top of silverware needs, drinks,... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends. First enjoying martinis and appetizer. The filet was very tender but was not cooked as requested. I sent it back and it came back perfect. The salmon was incredible and cooked to perfection. The waitress was very attentive. She was perfect to let us talk but didn't let us stall too long. We drove... More

If you're looking for a step up from the usual Chilis/Applebees or fast food places, try this great little place off the square in Gainesville. I ate there yesterday for the second time and was really pleased. First time I went I had the bleu cheese hamburger and it was delicious. Yesterday I had the chicken fingers and they were... More

We've visited the restaurant a couple do times. Food was really good, especially the fish tacos. We've tried several appetizers and they all were really good. Service is a always efficient and the food arrives soon after ordered.

We had plans to go to a certain restaurant that day, but they were closed for repairs... I quickly got out my Trip Advisor Ap and found this fantastic little spot... you could tell that it is a favorite among working force close by as the restaurant began to fill up after we got there for lunch. I had the... More

Really enjoyed visit to recess. The scallops Anthony were fantastic. The potato chips with blue cheese crumbles were scrumptious. The atmosphere was perfect aside from the many flies which had invaded the building. If not for this annoyance five stars would have been given. Will return however.
