Bennett Pointe Grill, Durham, NC, Sunday, December 9, 2014 – 7pm
Decibel Reading: 73 dB Sound Equivalent: Living Room Television
Conversation: Occasionally Difficult
Comments: We enjoyed the food, but conversation was occasionally difficult and required some repetitions for continuity. We were seated at a table in the middle of the dining area that contained hard floors with no upholstery or soft coverings to absorb the sound. Booths were present around the perimeter which may help reduce the noise but did not have seat cushions to absorb the noise. Separate kitchen and bar areas helped control the noise interference. A notable feature was the absence of loud background music – which helped reduce the overall noise interference. This restaurant can be a place to enjoy a meal and conversation if you choose a booth and do not sit in the center of the dining area.
