Food Dance creates an eclectic menu of dining choices prepared from the gardens and farms of local growers. Highly recommend having a breakfast, lunch, dunch (a late lunch/early dinner) or your evening meal at Food Dance. A great place to take visiting friends and family!

I thought the price was a bit high for what you got. The service was a bit slow. The dish that I had was a bit bland. It did have a fun atmosphere and a neat little shop.

Delightful interior, helpful servers and great food in this Kazoo institution. We hadn't been back in 10 years after enjoying Food Dance often while living here. Everything is not just the same, but amazingly better. My fave is the Bolero.
