First time visiting Broadway, what a fantastic meal! Every course was fresh and made in house, from the pate/prosciutto/pickles on the charcuterie appetizer, roasted beet salad, and the absolutely great skirt steak entrée. Great vibe and atmosphere, with a comfortable bar area as well. Will be back for sure!

Beef sliders, Brussels sprouts, Jose, James, and Sauvignon blanc made for a fun and savory experience. We ate, and enjoyed, the pork and the lobster salad (beautifully plated) as well, but the sliders and sprouts were out of this world. We also truly enjoyed the panna cotta. James was friendly and answered all of our questions, and Jose was a... More

We ate here for the second time. I remembered it being great, this time even better. Brussel sprouts, Hamachi ( though small serving), octopus, skirt steak, kale caesar, heirloom tomatoes - all great. Creative, delicious sauces and preparation. Fantastic cocktails. Good looking crowd in a chic room. Lively so a little loud. All our food came out quickly, very quickly... More

Celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Broadway and it was an amazing dinner and overall experience. We arrived early and sat at the bar where we had a proper handcrafted cocktail and enjoyed the lively ambiance. The Somm noticed that we had brought our own wine and decanted it immediately so it would be ready to drink when we took our... More

Great eats at the former site of 5 Feet, an eclectic menu that is every bit as good as others in the area with the highest Zagat ratings. Nice bar and a happening atmosphere.

Menu and quality of food delicious will return. Sunday evening was packed lots of energy however service was slow we had to request numerous times for drinks, etc. when they brought out coffee men served first and mine was served at least 10 minutes later, what's up with that? While not happy about the service last night, likely will return.... More

From the moment we arrived we guessed that this was not going to be a night to remember for the right reasons. We were ignored by the maitre d' in favour of someone she knew. The cocktail menu was poor and the waiter and his team didn't even know what a white cosmo was. The bone marrow was simply poor.... More

Took a close friend to Broadway for a special birthday treat. We shared a charcutterie plate, branzino entree and brussell sprout side (and half-bottle of Pinot). Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. But what impressed me most was the service. Despite being a higher-end establishment, every staff member (host, wait staff...) was friendly, warm and truly service-oriented.Looking forward to returning... More

My reviews are honest and right to the point - so here it goes... The food was amazing. Service was great. Pricing a bit high - but well worth it. I'll go back again and would absolutely recommend it to a friend...a sure sign we loved it.

Very cool vibe both sophisticated and trendy...... The way Chef Amar Santana plates food is unique and fun. My wife and I shared Spanish octopus A LA Plancha appetizer that was incredible. For entree's I had dry aged Sonoma duck Breast (best duck I ever had) and my wife had Mediterranean Branzino (melted in her mouth). Sides- Japanese eggplant and... More
