Nice restaurant

The food, wine, service, and atmosphere were all good. The waitress I had was very personable. I would go again.

Purchased several Groupons for dinner for 2 and dinner for 4 persons. If you have the Groupon for 4 you MUST have 4 in your party. You can either eat at the bar or at a table. Both areas have great service! Food has great flavor and our favorite dish is the rack of lamb served on a bed of... More

Nice find in downtown. Asian fusion with good food, nice service and live music. The hot and sour soup was very rich and peppery and the calamari with onions and jalapenos was fantastic.

Had mostly good meals here. The service was the thing that stood out most about the experience whilst dining at mosaic. Overall i would say it was a good experience and it was pretty much what you would expect to pay food wise in this type of place.

Last night I went to Mosaic Restaurant and arrived just in time for the Happy Hour. The appetizer was really great! I always have the Calamari however this time Les the manager suggested the Grilled shrimp. The portion was great and the taste was amazing. I was going to have dinner however the appetizer was so big that I was... More

Tasty but somewhat pedestrian menu. I can't really remember what we had. Nothing was particularly memorable either good or bad. Friendly servers. Very nice, modern Asian ambiance. Very nice bar...We used a Groupon which they were gracious about. Regular menu seemed pricey relative to the fairly basic menu.

Ate here for dinner and breakfast while staying at hotel. Great food. Wide variety to choose from on the menu. The restaurant seemed to be busy with non hotel customers as well.

We decided to give this place a try when Groupon was having a sale on local offers. At the time, the Yelp reviews were generally positive (although in hindsight I'm wondering if some of the reviews were really genuine). First off, our server was great...she was very friendly and took good care if us. We enjoyed our house wines, and... More
