Sadly, the Diamondback did not live up to my expectations. Ribs were black and smothered in a thick sauce, to hide the fat I guess. Slaw was ok, bread was pathetic, asparagus was ok, service was a little overbearing, restaurant menu does not match the online menu. Only 8 people in the restaurant, I can see why. I just found...

Diamondback grill cannot decide what it is. The place has tables that are set with white tablecloths but then have a white sheet of paper covering the clothes. Very reminiscent of the chain Macaroni Grill which caters to families. This place, which is very pricey, clearly is not children friendly. I was in the mood for light fare so only... More

Intimate fine dining area. The food is are excellent and not overpriced. Had the BBQ chicken sandwich which was very good and my wife had the oyster salad which she thought was excellent. The service was also excellent. Great place for a night of great food.

This place was awesome. Was in town with my husband on a business trip and stumbled onto this place. Great atmosphere, food and service. We had the pork chop which was on special and the crab cakes.

This restaurants name doesn't do it justice. This is one of the best restaurants in Winston-Salem, NC. It is located in a neighborhood area which houses many Wake Forest Grad students and Wake Forest Medical students. There is a big bar on one side and a smaller more intimate fine dining area on the other side. The food and drinks... More

Hidden away in an upscale neighborhood you would never expect to find such a jewel. Very nice, and spacious bar on one side and a small restaurant on the other. Everything was wonderful. Definitely a recommendation - you will enjoy the experience.

This restaurant does an excellent job of preparing tasty and innovative meals. But the service is sometimes overstated. Our waiter kept telling us that he would provide "amazing service" but there were often things that were overlooked... like proper silverware. Don't set expectations that you can't deliver. It was good service, but not amazing.

We have been here before, but it has been a couple of years. Seems like something has changed. Four of us went for an early dinner on a Sunday after a theater matinee. Though they say the dining room is open after 5:30, the dining room was closed this day and we had to eat in the bar. Not bad,... More

I had not been here in quite a while....was very pleased to see all of the paleo/gluten free items. We had a wonderful time and our food was amazing! **However...I saw the review about the 25% tip automatically added on for a group (without being told & not listed on menu)....this would definitely keep me from ever suggesting we do...

I ate there in June when our tennis team was in town for states. While our food was delicious, Kenny K, our waiter, slapped all of us with a 25% tip. One friend payed her portion in cash and he asked her if she wanted change!!! He never informed us that the tip was included and it is not stated... More
