Coozy and Great Servcie.
Have visited this location several times in the past few months and simply love the fact that I can sample some expensive wines from the machine. I would probably never risk buying the whole expensive bottle but it is nice to sample before I take the plung.
Have only had the fish taco's but there were outstanding.
Horrible Service & Food.
Agreed with previous reviewer - should have just split.
Went to Split last Thursday for lunch with my mom and boyfriend's mom, and should have trusted my better judgement and went any place else for better food and service The server was all over us when we came in and sat down, but then seemed to forget about us. Granted, he was the only server and working the bar too, but only had 3 tables with any people. We all ordered salads and I also ordered the butternut squash soup. We could see the chef from where we were sitting and I watched him plate up my soup way too early and stick it under the heat lamp while he prepared the the overdressed salads. By the time I finally got my soup, it was tepid at best and the server looked at me in disbelief when I sent it back. I then continued to watch the chef get disgusted that the soup was sent back saying that it was sitting under the heat lamp. All he had to do was stick his finger in it and see that it was cold. I had also ordered the spinach salad which was supposed to come with sliced apples and did not have any. Again, I told ther server and he had to consult the menu and then ask the chef only to report back to me that yes, it was supposed to come with apples. My mom's salad was supposed to have hazelnuts which consisted of hazelnut powder and when mentioned to the server, he again consulted the menu and chef and came back showing us that the powder was indeed hazelnuts and showed us a handful - classy. When the bill came, we were not comped for anything and nor did we receive an apology at any point for anything by the server or chef.
Good Wine, Friendly Atmosphere, Attentive Wait Staff.
We went to Split last night and were extremely impressed with their new menu. They have added imported wines to the wine list and have managed to keep their prices affordable.
The best thing about Split is the friendly serivce and attention to detail. The cannolis and butternut squash soup are fantastic.
Don't miss their new Sunday Campagne Brunches--only $18/ adult!
Awful Customer Service.
My friend and I planned an evening to go to a movie and then a nearby restaurant for an affordable Happy Hour. I'm relatively new to the area and couldn't find much that was open later than 9pm. I called Split earlier in the week to ask if they had a Happy Hour on Wednesday evening and was informed that it was from 3-6 and then from 9-close.
However, when we arrived we were told that information was incorrect followed by, "well, I'm the owner, so I should know. We won't have Happy Hour until the end of next month." Then he retracted and said, "Actually we do have Happy Hour during the week from 3-6 but have put the 9-close Happy Hour on hold for now." My friend and I were very disappointed because at that point we didn't really have any other options so we stayed and ordered wine and an appetizer.
When we were served our shared appetizer they forgot to bring us utensils and napkins. The server did come back with utensils at our request but I had to get our napkins.
I understand the economy is tough right now and businesses must make cuts. However, the management of this situation was so poor that they have lost any future business I (or anyone I know) would have given them.
I do NOT recommend wasting your money at this establishment.
Split should be called run away as fast as you can!.
Split....we should have split and just had popcorn and cokes at the theater. This so called wine bar didn't even have wines from Europe! What wine bar would only have a West Coast wine list. Granted Oregon, California, and Washington all have wonderful wines, but what about the rest of the World??? My wife and I have wandered past here many a times and never went in. Finally we decided it was time to stick our heads in. The overall appearance seem all well and good, but when we were greeted by a gentleman who seemed upset we even walked in my wife and I were ready to leave. We ordered calamari to start which was just so-so. Slightly overcooked causing a chewing and dry effect. Next up was our entree's. What a disappointment. I had the chicken dinner and my wife the filet mignon. Her filet was overcooked to the extreme and my chicken dinner was lacking in any sort of flavor. Our drinks took almost 15 minutes to get from the bar, and were not worth what we paid for them.
I can't believe anyone would ever have giving this hole in the wall five stars. We give it one and only for the appearance!!!!
Change for the better. I cant believe the change here!! This place opened a few years ago and started out great but over time the food got bad the wines even worse and the service became horrible. Split went through a change of ownership and what a change it was. The owner actually works there and is a great guy, the food is a five star plus and the wines are actually affordable(a dollar or two cheaper than anywhere else in the area and you can get a GLASS of Silver Oak unheard of). I got on their email list and they have monthly wine dinners and tastings. I thought i would just give split the recognition that they deserve. Great place if you like good food and wine. Well worth the wait on weekends.
One Word. In one world I can describe this so called restaurant....AWFUL! I wouldn't go here again if I was paid to
Great food...Great service!.
My family and I have gone to Split a few times now for lunch, dinner as well as just drinks and appetizers. I have to say that after the new ownership this summer, I have been more then satisfied with the food and service.
The location is perfect for dinner/drinks and a movie or a quick lunch on the way in or out from shopping. The atmosphere is casual and the place is always clean! The employees there have had nothing but smiles on their faces every time and are more then happy to help you in any way. In fact the gentleman that was taking our table even had the ability to calm a crying baby!
We have been able to try out a good portion of the menu items which offers variety enough to please just about anyone. Everything I have ordered so far has come out of the kitchen in a quick manner. The food is always hot and mouthwatering. The Executive Chef even came to our table to make sure everything was as ordered and delicious...and of course it was! I have worked in the restaurant industry and have had my share of plates to compare it to.
We recommend this to anyone in the area and we will most definately be back.
Wine bar 3.5-4.25 stars, FOOD: 1-2 stars. It's not often that I love a place for a while, then hate it. Well, I still love split for atmosphere, wine bar. BUT the food is worse than most places. They used to be pretty good to very good. Food has slipped, gone down hill. To sum it up, the food is cold, not fresh and poorly made. For Example: burnt food, last nights reheated or left out sitting for lengthy time until it goes cold and awful, etc. This is dish after dish after dish! It's really too bad because I have been here a dozen times and used to love to have some great food with my wine, but they have the worst cook on the West side behind the kitchen. Maybe the chef left? Anyway, you report the concerns and they do little about it. I'll go back, but for a drink of wine before a show or after shopping. I'd rather open my own wine at home and have some great food to nosh on. What a let down!
I will admit being leary after reading some of the negative reviews. And with my (2nd) experience, they are unfounded, IMHO!
We had a great time, mind you...we were only there for happy hour food and wine. But the food was marvelous! We ordered several HH items to share and each one was amazing. Make No MISTAKE, this is not your average happy hour. They serve high end tasting food (ceviche, excellent calamari, cheese plates, amazing hummus plate, etc), it's 5 STARS for the HH food, alone. Some people looking for a MEAL for $4 at happy hour, this is NOT your place. The food is served tapas style, small tastes of amazing food.
The wine list is good to great, thus minus a1/2 star. They have a rather small list for a "wine" bar. The enomatic preservation system is a nice treat. You can sample (for a fee) or have a glass of high end wines without having to purchase a bottle, great concept. For my personal tastes they did not have enough PNW, or international regions represented. But that's me. And they seemed to have quite a lot of California wines.. NO thanks. Living in Oregon and near Washington we have access to some of the best wines offered in this country. Skip California...no apologies, people, it's about supporting the local products. I would like to see more Argentina, Chile, Spain, Italy and France...on the wine menu.
Service was excellent. We were looked after very well and our server was great to interact with. I wish they had more tables/booths, as it could get crowded and did towards the dinner hour, but we weren't asked to leave, despite being HH customers.
It's definitely on my return list for excellent HH food, wine and dinners with the hubby! TRY this place if you love wine and incredibly innovative food!
