Reviews for The Playwright Bar

Amazing service, but the food is really not that great. I had the spicy burger and thought the patty was noticeably underseasoned, the bun over-sweet. For a drink I had the espresso martini, and while it was fine, it wasn’t to the caliber I would expect from a restaurant. I’m sure the regular draft beers and ciders are perfectly serviceable though. The vibe is interesting — it seems like it was once a spirited writer and music themed place that’s now selling its soul full review

The fact that this restaurant was not ready for a reservation is the epitome of unprofessionalism. Had us waiting in the rain for an hour. And they were letting random people in before their reservations. When inside, drinks were at a good cost but very cheap tasting. Food was mediocre, nothing to really go crazy about. Wish I went somewhere else with my time

Absolutely horrible experience I had at the playwright today. Bouncer was incredibly rude, hostess made us wait an hour even with reservation. The appetizer of Buffalo cauliflower had chunks of cauliflower and hair in the food?!? Steak tips were completely over cooked no flavor. I am so disappointed with this overpriced and extremely rude establishment, will never being coming back.
