We had a great server. Meals were hot. Presentation blah. We had 5 entrees at the table and none were served with veggies. For an example, a pork chop stuffed with crabcake was good but served with spaghetti and white sauce. After the bread pudding dessert, our group left unimpressed.

I would NOT recommend this restaurant to any one! My first visit was a total disaster. My friend and I both ordered steak and they both were horrible. To tough to cut with knifes furnished and bad taste! After couple of bites called witer over who denied it could be that way. Manager came and replaced the steaks. These new... More

My wife and I, son and daughter-in-law, and their two boys, ages 6 and 4 ate there on Jan. 5th. When my wife and I entered we met the Chef/Owner, Franson, who spoke with us for 10 min. Or so. We were seated promply and the wait staff was very attentive as was the manager who visited the table twice.... More

I have eaten there a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and there is always something new to try. The wait staff I have experienced have always been just as good as the food. Not some place I would eat at frequently, but a few times a year. Also, sign up for their email notifications,... More

This was a big disappointment to us - certainly not worthy of all the hype!! We paid $100 for an average to below average meal for two people with a bottle of wine that we really didn't want. Our waiter was a big part of our poor experience. He acted like this was a five star dining experience and he... More

The food was very good but the prices were a bit high. This is our second visit and it has seem that the price had gone up. It's still worth the visit if you haven't been here before.

If you're not familiar with the story of Chef Point Café, look it up. I'll focus on our last visit. Chef Point is what one might call designation dining for us, and we do eat there as often as we might like. That is both good and bad news. It is good news because we don't become bored with the...

5 first time diners from out of town came here for dinner with 3 locals who have been to Chef Point before and what great meals we had! Love the story behind the creation of this wonderful restaurant that serves comfort food with a unique flare. We all shared different dishes. The stuffed pork chop and stuffed chicken were delicious!... More

It's all my fault. I never tried Chicken Marsala so i tried it out...after a few bites the couple at a nearby table had their food brought out and I regretted my choice. The gentleman ordered country fried steak......the biggest country fried steak ever on top of a bed of mashed potatoes. It looked awesome. In retrospect I should have... More

Some pastas are too salty. There's a dog that roams around the restaurant and has actually used the bathroom on the floor which is very off putting and unsterile. My boyfriend has gotten the pork chop and it was very dry. I've seen friends order chicken and it's extremely undercooked. Had we not looked at it before eating, she could've... More
