Didn't care for the snooty server, who didn't have a sense of what was good and what wasn't so good. Food was very late (not a crowded night) and my patty melt was a bit burnt. The patty was way too small for the bread and it was swimming in sauce. The food wasn't awful, but it wasn't great either.... More

Great local cafe, with craft gin and great cocktails. Riding club decor. Nice place for Sunday brunch too. One of the few places to make the Aviation Cocktail.

We enjoy having dinner or drinks here, it's a great place. However, this is a review specifically of Sunday breakfast/brunch. We've been a number of times and won't repeat. Number one reason: kitchen is SLOW. It can take up to 25-30 minutes to get your food. Meanwhile your coffee is cold, they warm it up, it gets cold again, you... More

I'm so terribly sorry for your experience. That is not Proper in any way. Not as an excuse but by way of explanation, this last Sunday brunch was our first service after a week long closure for repairs and non of the hourly kitchen staff turned up - our poor sous chef was literally in the kitchen by himself. We... More

Good neighborhood restaurant. Food is good and happy hour is good. Mixed drinks are oddly tiny. Service could be a bit friendlier.

This was our second visit. The first, my review of which may still be available, was disappointing. But, I figured, let's give it another chance. I ordered a dry Rob Roy. I watched the bartender filling a half-shot glass with sweet vermouth. I told him to stop, that a dry Rob Roy was made with dry vermouth. He responded that... More

Great tasting food, med portion sizes that don't leave you hungry or overly stuffed, courteous staff, and an array of healthy menu options. Lobster bisque was wonderful with sizable pieces of lobster. Reservations are recommended on busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Had breakfast with friends here yesterday; I got scrambled eggs, shmooshed potatoes and bacon; one friend got a Salade Nicoise, and another got a salmon patty. We were all pleased with our choices. Very tasty! Somewhat high prices.

I took my husband for drinks and appetizers for his birthday. We love sitting at the bar and watching the bartenders mix drinks! Always a show. We had the basic gin and tonics, but tried a few different gins. Bluecoat "209" and Botanist. They have a great variety of gins. Also had the lovely heirloom tomato and burrata appetizer. It...

The Proper is a new kind of neighborhood restaurant, which, like the pubs of Ireland & England, aims to provide a warm, "authentically local" gathering place for friends and family of all ages to meet and celebrate while, at the same time, offering a higher level of service and cuisine than is normally found in traditional "mom and pop" restaurants.Our unique farm-to-table versions of Classic American Comfort Food and Regional Specialties feature locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients and we make nearly everything from scratch. From the English Muffin and Jam at breakfast to the American Cheese on our house-ground Proper Burger, it's all crafted in-house... with care.In addition, we also have a classic cocktail lounge featuring the World's Largest Selection of Gin.Every Saturday and Sunday we offer a Champagne Brunch featuring our Tableside Cocktail Cart with Seasonal Bellinis.
