Always great.

Favorite in town place. Whether for lunch or dinner also good. Service is friendly although sometimes spread a little thin. Live music on the weekends.

City Streets has truly wonderful food! We keep going back for the Spinach Linguini with Alfredo Sauce and shrimp and scallops. We have eaten this dish in several places in Italy and while it was great, it is nothing short of spectacular at City Streets! The sauce is made from scratch and the shrimp and scallops were cooked to perfection.... More

I often find myself in the area for work and try to avoid the chain restaurants. City Streets is on a major road not from the Staybridge Suites I normally stay at. The bar staff is attentive and engaging. I've been there for lunch and had the pleasure of being served by Tara and I've been there in the evening... More

This is a neighborhood restaurant for us and we go fairly often and we love the music and conversation from the bar. The onion soup is very good and I have had the pork chop twice and it's delicious. The chef will change your sides if you request a change. Most appetizers are also very good. We often go with... More

My wife, 2 kids, friends and I ate here in October 2015 for dinner. I had eaten here one time before and the food was not that good. But I agreed to go back because my wife and friends wanted to. This time it was better. I had French onion soup and a machengo chicken salad. My wife had a... More

Tried City Street's again after not being here for a year or more. Years ago the food here was consistently high quality. This visit it seemed to be more about quantity over quality. This visit I tried the Steak Tips. It came with two sides both of which were in the starch family. (Onion Straws and some kind of Potato... More

It's in a small strip mall, right on Rte. 130. Nothing special about the location, but a very nice surprise when we went in. The menu was very eclectic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Would definitely go back.

The food and atmosphere were great. Many families were in the restaurant part and the other patrons were in the sports bar portion. Our waiter was super friendly and supplied great service. The food was Delicious and more than you could eat. We had the pleasure of being there when they had a karaoke band and stayed to finish the... More

With a Groupon coupon for City Street's we decided that it was worth another try. The restaurant used to be good, but has declined. Tonight was the worst visit so far, the duck was well done with little flavor. Vegetables were unseasoned and overcooked. The rice and the orzo had no flavoring at all. Steak was cooked perfectly, so I... More
