A table for 8 is never easy, but these folks accommodated our request without hesitation, and we were seated near the busy open kitchen, which gave us a chance to see the many creative brunch selections as they hit the warming lights. Favorites at our table were the shrimp and grits, fried chicken eggs benedict, and the Moroccan Eggs Shashouka. Attentive, friendly service, great food and interesting vibe. All in all...one of the best brunch experiences we've had.

We had heard mixed reviews about Tandem but decided to give it a chance and it was mixed. While the menu looks great the food is just ok. Everything was cold on arrival. The mussels were good but cold. The root vegetable appetizer was cold. The salmon entree was good but the ravioli entree was terrible. So, I agree with the reviews it was mixed. This restaurant has such great potential I hope they will work on execution!

Yes, this place is pricey. But wow it's worth the price to experience the interesting combinations of flavors and textures of many dishes'. I'd recommend splitting a bottle of wine and several appetizers. The entres are small-ish, but that can be a great excuse to get dessert.

Outstanding food and beverages at this restaurant with a long bar to accommodate if you have to wait for a table. We like it and go for special occasions.
