My wife and I dined at TimeOut yesterday. My conclusions differ a bit from Devra's. We love the burger at Craigie on Main, and that was our primary motivation to go. Parking was great. The ambience in the great hall was loud and crowded. We went to Craigie first, and placed our orders. With a bit of difficulty, we secured two seats in the central area. I then went searching for a beverage. The man who served us at the Bar was well meaning, but it was clear that this was his second day on the job. For me it was the lemon that came from a bottle in the cocktail that formed my opinion.

Meanwhile, we had place our orders at Craigie 30 minutes before, and still not ready. I went to the counter to inquire, and was advised "soon". After another 20-30 I checked again. Our order was sitting on the counter getting cold. I told the server that our beeper never went off. She told me the "yes, we are having trouble with the 30's".

So our entrees were cold, but a cold Craigie burger is still wonderful. The experience left us wondering if we would come back. Several of the other offerings seemed very appealing, but they will still be hampered by the crowds. We are willing to give the place time to settle in, and give it another try.
