“Good Food, Relaxed Atmosphere, good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Went with friends who rave about Main Ingredient and who have dined there at least 20 times. Made reservations but it was not crowded on Sunday evening. Service was friendly, attentive, and well versed on the menu, ingredients and preparation. The pan roasted scallops with butternut squash cream was very nice, an ample portion and presented elegantly. The rockfish was equally delicious and of an ample portion. The Main Ingredient has a fantastic bakery. As a result, their desserts are numerous. They all look fantastic! We shared the orange pineapple bundt cake and it was delicious! The serving was huge! While the prices are not cheap, the food, service, and total experience were worth it. Very clean restaurant and restrooms. Plentiful staff to attend to all patrons. I would DEFINATELY return if for nothing else, the desserts! Located in a strip mall so don't be put off by its location. Casual, quiet atmosphere. Family friendly but likely not a great place for small children.

“Snickerdoodle French Toast!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to get breakfast!! While being very simple and nice on the inside, the breakfast is out of this world good! The Snickerdoodle French Toast is among the best breakfast foods I've ever had. The fluffiness of the bread, the robust Snickerdoodle flavor... Too good! The service was incredibly prompt and friendly and the coffee was invigorating. Parking was pretty ample, although it looks as though if the restaurant was packed on the weekend it could get crowded parking-wise.

“Super Tasty Food with Varied Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

This is the kind of restaurant you want to go to when you want to dress casually and have outstanding quality food. We went with permanent local residents who recommended it highly. It was even better than they said. One had steak on salad, another just steak, and two had the meatloaf. The best meatloaf I have had in a long time. Home baked cakes and other other desserts. Everyone loved what they ordered. (Children welcome--special menu for kids. You will not be disappointed here.
