Just ate there on Thursday and was pretty underwhelmed by the food. The menu is amazing it's just that the food fell short of our expectations. My sandwich was soggy and lacked flavor, not a good value for $14.00. I will try it again just because I have had decent food there last summer...

For our anniversary we used a Groupon deal for the night, our 2nd attempt to make things right at Ingredients. The outside patio was 100% full but inside area was 75% empty. The wait staff acted like we where not there, full attention on one larger inside group and outside patio. A couple was seated next to us and they... More

I am a regular here and hadn't tried the Alfredo before. I will definitely try it again. On the downside, they no longer have the oh so delicious lamb sliders on the menu.

This is a nice date place. I've been to Ingredients several times and really enjoyed it. The food is delicious, the service is good and they have live music on certain nights. Their chefs take their cooking seriously so expect a touch of the gourmet when you eat here. You can't go wrong when you order. Everything is good. I... More

We were in on a Thursday night to hear Jennifer Grimm and Joe Cruz perform. They gave their usual great performance and we were delighted with the food and service. We had the Alaskan Cod and Pork Scaloppini. Both were excellent and all-in-all, we had a wonderful evening. Be aware that they have live music some evenings so it may... More

A cute little place to grab a drink. listen to some music, and enjoy their yummy food! One side is a bar area with a bar, some high top tables and a small stage where you can listen to acoustic music on certain nights. The other side has tables and is really quaint. I had the chicken taco's which were... More

Visiting family nearby and found this cafe on Yelp. Oh my, what a find! In the land of cheese curds, I found this delightful upscale cafe tucked away in a strip mall. Fresh ingredients (natch) nicely varied menu, warm, bright ambience- perfect for a 9 degree afternoon. Had chicken tacos- flavorful, with tasty black beans and pico. Just enough for... More

The food was ok, but overpriced. The music was too loud for a conversation to happen. If you go, eat outside because then you will be able to hear.

We were a party of four eating here on a busy Saturday night. We arrived before 5pm. By 6pm the place was hopping. Our food was very good. We all got one of their specials for the night. Wine selection excellent. The reason I gave only four stars was that by the time we left we could not carry on... More
