Reviewed August 17, 2013

Dining alone as a working woman can be awkward but this restaurant made it a pleasure. The selections were numerous and the quality outstanding

“Great accent to Verasa”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This place is inside Verasa... try the lobster popcorn (YUM). Wonderful beer and wine selection and wonderful breakfasts.

“Should be a destination, but it is a miss”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The food at the Bank is very good, but the service is painfully slow, even careless. We are locals, looking for a hangout for frequent breakfast and lunch dates for our group. We meet nearly every Sunday and other weekdays as the spirit moves us. The setting is lovely, but not enough to make the slow service tolerable. It is very impersonal....

I am a retired teacher and know some of the wait staff. They are good, friendly types, so it is hard to define the problem, except that in a nearly empty restaurant, with several wait staff on duty, they just are not available. They hurry by without making eye contact or are just not on the floor. I do not think this is their problem, but a management issue. Perhaps their servers are too spread out, too far from the kitchen, or...? I hope it improves. The prices are reasonable, the food good, the potential great.

“A different bar experience”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Maybe because I'm a native southerner, I accustomed to a certain amount of interaction/small talk from bartenders, this did not happen. I was a little surprised.
