Great meal and service, wonderful menu and atmosphere. Nice wine and beer selection. Zenith noodle dish is fabulous. Will be back to try other dishes.

Monday - Wednesday they have free corkage so you can save on your favorite wine. The service and food here is very good. I love the Beer Braised Lamb Shank and the Italian Salad. Good menu and great deals with the fixed price menu specials when available.

The Wanton Nachos are my favorite! This is the spot downtown to come when you just want to chill with a glass of beer or wine. Great specials, Easy atmosphere to meetup with friends.

I had the butter chicken but had to eat it quickly as it arrived lukewarm (and with no naan!) The service though was excellent. Beer was cold. Just the lunch wasn't piping hot like expected.

Having small children, a date night out occurs VERY rarely. I had long awaited the D'Lish menu to come out to savour over a romantic dinner. After viewing the menu online, I booked to confirm the D'Lish seating. However, once we were seated, we were told that we weren't booked for D'Lish so we couldn't order from that particular menu....

Four of us reserved a dinner at The Office to celebrate my husband's birthday.The food varies widely from below average, to exceptional. We tried the Summer D'Lite menu, plus several a la carte dishes, and shared around. The daily soup (that day) was avaerage, but the cauliflower appetizer was great. The burger was average, the fries were good,the lamb shank... More

Was there last night. Great food - had the pan-seared fish, my favorite. Good prices and service. This time we decided to have their El cheapo wine which was Chateau des Charmes Cab Merlot for $1/ounce! Never disappointed at this great prize in SC.

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. Both my partner and I were disappointed in our meals. I had the veggie burger which is basically mashed beans... I didn't taste any seasoning at all. He had some sort of sandwich which was also pretty bland. Good beers on tap and a nice atmosphere so will come back for drinks sometime... More

A week ago seven of us went for dinner at The Office. Being able to bring our own wine with no corkage fee (Monday to Wednesday) was a real bonus. Even a $12 corkage fee on weekends is a bargain when you think of what you can spend on a bottle in a restaurant. All of our meals were really... More
