Once was a great place.
The Atmosphere has gone downhill from when it first opened. I've been many times used to have a vibrant vibe but no longer. Food is good service and attitude is not.
Tiny, overpriced menu in a nice-looking establishment.
The menu was a surprise. It was tiny. I assume this it to keep food costs down and eliminate waste in the back of house. My meal was only so-so in quality, the waitress left mid-meal to have a smoke break and we were ignored with empty drinks until she got back. The prices are fairly steep, expect to spend $25 to $40 per person for lunch and a couple drinks. I was left disappointed in the cost and the service. It's nice venue, but not worth visiting again. Oh, and avoid the fries, they are greasy and gross!
My wife and I have been to Planktown in Springfield dozens of times and this was a first. We arrived on a Monday after lunch. As we anticipated their were very few people there. We expected to spend an hour or two having a leisurely lunch. After 15 minutes without water or a tap list, we were finally approached by the waitress. We ordered and waited another 25 minutes...nothing, no beer, no acknowledgement. We left and went to Cornucopia down the street and got stellar service and left a $20 tip. Previous to this trip, we had always been treated to what we consider a great experience. Excellent service, great wait staff, and wonderful food and beer. My wife and I know food service. Together we have over 30 years in the business. I owned a restaurant. I had talked to the owner many times in the past as well as Dan, who I believe is the floor manager and was not present that one bad day. We always praised both.
really solid food. A lot of interesting takes on dishes. I had the steelhead bon mi, which was excellent. I also tasted the mushroom burger which excellent. The fresh aeoli was great to dip the truffle fries in. You wouldn’t think a bar would have such fabulous food, but this one does.
Food & service
Food and service were okay Because of high ceilings,, hard to hear others in our party. Probably won’t be back!
