204 North Kitchen and Cocktails
Came in for brunch as a party of five shortly after they opened. We were sat promptly but told we'd have to squeeze in on a 4 top high top. We understood because we had no reservation. The only problem about this is that there were plenty of larger tables available and that were not sat for the entire time we were there (which was approximately an hour and a half). I understand that these may have been reservations, but they weren't sat the whole time we were there. There was no place to put our coats, so we had to sit on them or drape then across our laps. It would have been nice to have some other option (maybe a coat rack by the door or something) because it was not very comfortable. The service was good. It did take quite a while for our drinks to be brought out, but I understand they just opened not that long ago. The food overall was good. We had French toast, omelets and the chicken and waffles. All the food appeared to be cooked exactly as everyone wanted it and my food tasted very good. I appreciate our server bringing out sauces before the food arrived. I wish I could give 3 1/2 stars if I could but the discomfort at our table brought it down to 3 instead of a 4. We will most likely be back again sometime soon.
Reservations are highly recommended for 205 North Kitchen. Luckily reservations can easily be made from right here in Google Maps. A lot of the tables are very high tops, so make sure to request a low table. The food was good and we really enjoyed the service. Sides are sharable portions! Their drinks all have a unique twist but are very good. I got the tiki drink in the pineapple glass. Overall was a good evening.
Make sure you make a reservation. The burger I had was good and hit the spot. It's a clean establishment and has a cool cafeteria type feel to it. Watch out for the tall blonde who seems to be more intrested in taking pictures of the food and making snide comments to patrons (me). I am sorry I was told I did not need a reservation when I tried to make one.
Sunday morning for brunch at 11 am. We were the second table in the restaurant. Greeted and seated quickly. Service was attentive and friendly. $5 mimosas. Food came from the kitchen fast and was good.
I want to go back just for the Empress of Tryon cocktail! It was sooo good!!! We dined there for wedding rehearsal dinner with a party of 25 so the menu was prefixed. I had the (teeny tiny) Caesar Salad and Salmon entree served with crispy potatoes and green beans. Added some Tabasco for flavor since it was lacking a bit.
