“Farm to Table Delights”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I love farm to table restaurants and Home 231 didn't disappoint. The menu is filled with unique combinations of wonderfully fresh veggies. The grilled asparagus and tomato salad was delicious and the sea scallop entree over an avocado cream with fingerling potatoes and roasted corn was just the right portion size and very flavorful.
it is definitely a place to experience your food and enjoy the fact that it comes from regional farmers.
The cost is on the higher end, but worth it.
The service was a bit slow though. I was there with my husband and another couple. We waited about 30 minutes to get our starters and salads (which all came together) and then 2 entrees arrived, a few minutes passed and the next one came and finally after several minutes the last one. So there was room for improvement on that but we weren't in a hurry and the great food made up for it.

“Best grilled cheese ever!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Had lunch there for first time on visit to HBG. Grilled cheese was awesome, not soaked in cheese, just perfect. Not sure what kind of bread but it was again, perfect. Service and atmosphere great. Cant wait to get back there.

“Business Lunch”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Met colleagues for a business lunch. The service and food were very good. Prices were very reasonable. It is a cute restaurant and could be a romantic evening place to go to. I would recommend and go back.

“Terrible service, mediocre over priced food”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Waited 5 mins for a host to stick his head around, even tho we had a reservation. Waited at least 5 mins for a server to come to put menus down. Waited 10 minutes after this, and we hadn't even been served drinks yet. Ordered drinks, and wait 5 mins til the server came back and said "oh, sorry, no we don't have Belvedere". Waited another 5 mins to get our drinks. And the restaurant
was more than half empty.
The food was overpriced for the quality, and the portion sizes were more like lunch sized than dinner.
I would not go there again.

“Surprising wonderful Sunday breakfast”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Truly gourmet treat starting with fresh squeezed OJ, la columbe coffee and working our way through lemon curd topped stuffed French toast, a wonderful omelet, freshly ground sausage patty, and the best "hash browns" I've ever had. We were full, unfortunately, so had to pass on the donuts for dessert. Wish we could go back for a dinner.
