Rated 4 out of 5 by The Mussels were fantastic and we enjoyed he bistro salad, however the egg was a big over cooked. The outside atmosphere was not fantastic but the inside looked great. Sep 28, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by The first time we went to First Course we had a waiter who was remarkable in terms of wine knowledge, knowledge of the food preparation and prompt service as well as personable. We've been back 3 more times but the service has been from other people who have not matched his caliber. Unfortunately I cannot remember our server's name but we have not seen him lately so perhaps he left. We haven't gotten the experienced knowledge about food when we ask questions or have had quite the level of service since. But we will still come back. But for prices of some entrees and apps, we feel the level of service/attentiveness/appearance needs to be bumped up a little. Sep 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ambiance, location and service is top notch. Food -very disappointed with menu changes. New menu and cooking is not up to par and we don't know if we will be back. We go to First Course 6-8 times per year and have been faithful patrons for 12 years. Monkfish was way too salty. Pizza was not good. Ceasar salad dressing - not good. please bring back some of the originals. (Ceasar, bruschetta, butternut squash ravioli, chicken roulade). Its great to add new things to menu but they need to be as good as the previous. This is a sad turn of events for one of our favorite restaurants. Sep 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I liked the cozy atmosphere with some elegant touches, but not stiff at all. The waiter was responsive, but ... What was missing? His manner was that he was a little busy for us, but I don't think he was. Small point. Sep 18, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Have been going to First Course since it opened and was glad to see the menu had changed. The amount drop-down box above does not work, we spent $95.00 not including the coupon. We are evaluating the new menu (chef), and were not as thrilled with the new selections as the old ones (though we were tired of the old ones). Sep 8, 2014
