This was one of our favorite restaurants, but it was sold in late August, and though I understand that the chef has stayed on, the experience is just not the same. The menu is far less eclectic; the prices are higher; the new wait staff lacks the smooth professionalism of the old Quench. We're sad to say this is likely... More

Very casual bar atmosphere. Better than average food. Surprisingly excelldnt softshell crab sandwich with a curry dressing. Perfectly cooked burgers and to die for french fries. Service can be spotty when busy. But the food is worth it.

Things started off well. A group of 11 of us wanted to go out for Sunday brunch. The web site offered only one time that was not convenient. We called and left a voice mail. When the restaurant opened we got a call confirming our reservation for the time requested. When we go there our table was waiting. Things sort... More

I have eaten here several times because my mom likes the healthy menu and the seating options but in my opinion the food is hit or miss and the prices are high. They do often have groupon deals so if you are interested in trying the restaurant wait for a groupon to come up. They have live music on fri... More

Food Service very slow. Waited and waited and waited for our food(25 min.) Ordered a burger (A lot of bun and a little burger...Where's the beef) No bottle or draft beer...All cans. Can you believe it! They need to re-think their business concept..

It is important to say that I travel for a living so I am not an average person that does not get out much. I have also been to the South and know what southern dishes are supposed to taste like. After reading reviews, I went for the famous fried chicken and Mac and cheese dish--- a soul food favorite... More

Quench is our go-to place when we have out-of-town company or just want to have an informal, delicious meal. The staff is efficient and friendly, and we have never been rushed. Even if you don't drink anything stronger than tea, you'll find plenty to like here!

After my first visit I was worried this place was set up for disaster. Small space, eclectic chef driven menu, and too many signature drinks. They seemed better placed in SoHo or Murray Hill. However, I am proud to report they are a solid local choice for dinner. The food is still chef driven but the menu is now bigger... More

I heard of Quench from a friend who lives in the area and decided to meet some friends for happy hour on my way home one day. At first glance its just a Bar with a few tables and eclectic artwork. My waitress suggested a drink and I was in love. My drink was a mixture of Tequila, honey, ginger... More

It has taken us three tries to use our Groupon coupon at Quench. Going on a Friday night around 7:30 or 8:00 pm, it is an 1.5 hour wait in a small, jam packed restaurant/bar and a deafening loud room. It was so loud, my husband has been reluctant to go back. We tried again on a Saturday at 6:30... More
