“Not a rave review”
Review of The Old Arcana - CLOSED

Cuisines: American, Contemporary
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We were excited about the "bluegrass brunch" but when we arrived we were given lunch menus. They seem confused, the person I spoke to on the phone contradicted almost everything that happened when we visited. Our service was just poor. The waitress could not answer any questions about the menu and kept forgetting things. It was too long before anyone took our order and then FOREVER before we got our food. Everything we ordered was cold- sandwiches and salads, with the exception of a fried egg, so I'm not sure what could have taken so long. 2/6 orders were wrong. The food itself was nothing spectacular taste-wise, but different. I would suggest adding a few items for less adventurous eaters if you want to sustain popularity. If you have someone in your party that doesn't try new foods you'd better skip it- there is nothing that they will recognize. The kids menu was perfect, though!
The atmosphere was exceptional, especially with the live music- a real treat! But we will be reluctant to return due to the service and limited menu.
Giving 3 stars mostly for atmosphere. Food was average, service poor, menu poor (except kids), atmosphere excellent.

My daughter, her husband and myself had brunch at the Old Arcana Restaurant. We each tried a different item on their menu and shared with each other. I have to say each were delightful from their quiche to corned beef sandwich. The staff was great and we felt we had made new friends when we left. We will definitely return and tell our friends about it. Sharon
