    We came for a friends birthday and had a really nice time. All of the cocktails were so yummy and unique! We had the shishito peppers and we liked them but nothing over the top. Fav drink was the Freedom of Speech!

    High class food and atmosphere. Down to earth staff and music selection. The perfect blend of the two. My favorite speakeasy.

    First time dining at William n Graham and unfortunately it will be our last. To begin with the lamps at the tables were very dim. We had to use our cell phones flashlight to read the menu. Second was the noise level. I had to talk loud to be heard. Third, they were out of the chicken flatbread which at 7:30 pm on a Saturday night should not happen. Hubby and I shared the bone marrow which we thought was delicious.. We were going to try the chicken flatbread but because they were out of this entree we chose the appetizer onion soup for our entree which was very good. The two positives were the craft cocktails were innovative and our server John was friendly and took care of all our needs. Bottom line ; poor lighting, noisy, and they add a 5% service charge to your bill.

    This is a really good bar. The ambiance is attractive and the music isn’t so loud that you can’t hear who you came with. The small bites were good but the drinks were better. I’d definitely go back.

    I wanted to love this place since it was my co-diner’s first experience at a speakeasy. The front of a bookstore is cute but so small it’s hard to play up the “surprise” and mystique. Once inside the decor tries its best to be dark and vintage but the loud modern music ruins the vibe. People don’t dress up so it kinda feels like a regular small restaurant/bar. Very unique cocktail menu. Hasn’t heard of a lot of the liquors so that was an exciting adventure. We ordered two drinks and they were extremely strong. So much so that we asked to get them watered down. Not impressed even after that. I’m GF so I asked abt the dip we ordered and our waiter assured me there would be cucumbers for me. Which was great. But then he let us order the duck without commenting—-ummmmm—-it was breaded when it arrived and way underdone. Would not recommend that dish for anyone. Did enjoy the burrata salad tho.

    This was our first time visiting and loved it. The drinks (Kirby’s Dreamland and vodka martinis) and food (bar snacks and Fidel Trudeau) were excellent. Plenty of food to split! James was attentive and the service was great. We are looking forward to going back!

    Great place with a speak easy feel. Drinks were really good some of the food was great and some just ok. Burger was over priced for what you get. Shishito peppers were good, crab dip just so so. Our waiter Jose was amazing!! All in all it is worth going!

    Justin was a fantastic bartender! We were bummed to reserve a table and then get seated at the bar. After our first round of drinks they asked if we would want to be seated at a table. We declined since Justin as entertaining to watch and so personable.

    Cool concept and great cocktails, but overall felt like it was trying too hard to be cool. Being crushed into a waiting crowd in the tiny front door reception area (even having a reservation) was not a great start to an evening. Understood that they're going for old timey secret 'speakeasy', but waiting there just to have to cram over so a false bookshelf door can be opened didn't make sense. Once inside, the servers were friendly and knowledgable. And again, the cocktails are amazing. But overall the ambiance was insanely loud, the awful rap music made the experience uncomfortable and impossible to talk, and we had a timed limit at our table before the next reservation. Those pieces left us all feeling like we would not return.

    This was our second time at W&G. This time it seemed to me the drinks were not as strong. They were still good and creative cocktails, but a little too pricey for not much booze in their drinks. The waffle was delicious!

    This is my second time coming to Williams and Graham; the first time was amazing, but this was a completely different experience and not what I looking for or expecting. This is supposed to be a speakeasy where you have to go through a secret door in a bookshelf, and my first visit it was low key, jazz music was playing, and the bartenders were relaxed and attentive (as advertised). This visit was not that. The music was dance club loud and the room was packed - not the worst thing, but definitely not the vibe I was looking for. The server was friendly and attentive, but there was no attention to detail when it came to the drinks or our selections. The drinks we did have were admittedly fantastic, but overall I was disappointed with the experience. Maybe it was like this because it was later on a Saturday night? I would come back, but only earlier in the evening.

    A friend and I had a girls’ night and we started our evening here. You definitely would like to have a reservation if you go, otherwise you’ll be waiting for a while. It’s an intimate, warm ambiance inside. The staff are amazing! The drinks were absolutely delicious! We had the sweet potato hummus as a snack and it was ok. It came with cucumbers and pita bread and the pita bread was very dry and flat. But overall it was a great experience and I’ll definitely be going back!
