As much as I want to like this place I cannot. The food is mediocre at best but the worst part is, you are likely to be forgotten. Perhaps it's a result of the shots and drinks the staff enjoy throughout the night that impairs them to the point that they are unaware of your presence. Or perhaps it's the complacency that seems to have settled upon them. The bar staff is on point. They make great drinks and are very engaged. The problem is the food and the leadership. It is clear that if you are dining, you are a far second to the fun the staff wants to have! Do yourself a favor and walk 15 yards to Citizen Soul. You will be well taken care of! The two stars is solely reflective of the cocktails and the bar staff. Otherwise I would have given Holmes a 1 star or lower,
Amazing service, I can not for the life of me remember the gals name who has been my server/bartender twice... She has been over the top amazing and super friendly. The food and drinks are amazing here as well, the tomato salad followed by the NY Strip (upon her rec.) was the perfect combo!
Although the service and atmosphere was outstanding yhe food wasn't as good. The corn dish was excellent and the carrot dish had a nice sauce but don't expect orange carrots. The hamburger was a bit dry. Even with all that the service is what got the 3 stars...maybe we just picked the wrong things.
Had friends in town over the weekend and decided to go to Holmes for a nice dinner outside. We were told the patio was sat on a first-come, first-serve basis. We enjoyed drinks at the bar and waited over 90 minutes for a table to open (although there were empty tables everywhere). Normally, I’d understand that those empty tables likely belonged to other reservations, however, this wasn’t the case given we were advised they didn’t accept reservations for outside. When finally sat, it took another 20 minutes to get greeted from our server. Although the food was pretty good, the service was awful. There were 6 of us and our check came at the end and our server made us separate our own check with pen and paper. What a joke! There are far too many other quality restaurants in the neighborhood to return here. Huge disappointment.
Very meh. The short ribs were so full of fat that I spent my entire meal doing surgery on them trying to find anything that qualifies as meat. Would have been great if our waiter had checked back even once to refill our beverages.
