Cool venue but definitely noisy! Even on a Monday evening, this place was full.

Enjoyed our selections:
Fried oysters, Brussels sprouts, chicken tacos, trout, sushi rolls, ice cream sandwich, wines and cocktails.

Food good and very good...simply prepared...not huge portions, appetizers pricey as are wines and alcohol.

No gratis bread on table.

Service fine. Tab adds up!

Wonderful lunch with friends. Vegan and vegetarian friendly. The Butternut Squash Soup was tasty and so flavorful. The guacamole with chips was a great side to share. Very crispy chips and fresh guacamole with corn, peppers, pepitas, cojito cheese and tomatoes. Fresh and crispy Summer Water Rosé. Would definitely come back. Reservations recommended.

We have a love/hate relationship going on with this restaurant, in our neighborhood. We love the food - great, fresh fare, you can have sushi or a great salad or something heartier, plus the yummy baked goods up front are always enticing. But we hate the loudness of the restaurant; the typical faddish restaurant with tables crammed together, loud surfaces and high ceilings that make cozy dinner conversation impossible. So while we'd love to return and recommend it, we don't often do so because of this. I wish restaurants would rethink the noise level.

Summer House was a fun place to meet friends for brunch. The interior decor is well done. Loved sitting in the area with the glass ceiling; its so bright and cheerful. Food was good, staff was friendly. I would definitely go back.
