Great atmosphere, might be better for drinks and apps rather than a sit-down meal. The food is traditional and "safe," you're not going to find super modern cuisine with creative tastes and combinations (for the prices that you'll pay).

Not my go to place in downtown as it is over rated, priced and parking is not fun. Food is OK. I only go when out of town friends visit or for business occasion. Bar scene crowded and loud.

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal in this wonderfully decorated former tobacco warehouse. The vintage elevator, chandelier and live trees create a fantastic ambiance. After a cosmo, I enjoyed scallops over risotto, and my partner had meatloaf. Service was excellent and we enjoyed listening to the singer below in the bar area while we ate. There are three... More

Yummy. Great setting for celebration dinner. Large portions. 3 of us split 2 entrees, one soup, 2 salads, and an appetizer. We had leftovers. High priced but certainly not outrageous. The drinks were a bit weak. made reservations months out.

My daughter and I came for her birthday. The furnishings and rooms are just amazing to view. Our table was on the third floor and we took an open, old fashioned elevator to get there. Totally cool! Live band gave the place a welcome vibe. Employees were welcoming and professional. Food was good. Pricey. Maybe lunch is more economical. Complimentary... More

We stopped here on our pub crawl. The building inside is a must see with its elevator and atrium. Coconut shrimp was tasty and the bar had tv's, but our server wasn't super friendly and the air felt a bit stuffy

The Tobacco Company has been around for a long time. For my friends and I it used to be THE place for a special occasion (back in the late 1970's). I recently went with a group of 15 for lunch and was very pleased to find it 's still a special place. The food was excellent! Our group had She-Crab... More
