I would say I don't agree with comments that service is bad. I've been here a lot over the last year and there might be delays when there are a lot of people but you can see the same everywhere. I like that it is a calm, comfortable restaurant to have dinner. Food is good, steaks definately are above average.

Our family ate several meals together here over the past few days. For the most part, everyone enjoyed the food but the service was quite awful. The waitstaff was inattentive. We had to ask multiple times for things like missing utensils, drink refills, etc. Last night, it took 30 minutes after we were seated for the order to be taken.... More

The east indian guy who seated me had the personality of a mortician. I didn't feel welcomed at all. Took so long for my salad to arrive; I'd forgotten that I had ordered it! But the salad was served in a chilled bowl; that was nice. I ordered the "8 oz" filet mignon, cooked medium. It was WAY overcooked but... More

I could almost say that the food was a normal diner type of breakfast but after the wait staff ignored me for 20 minutes that made everything even worse...nothing worse than mediocre food served by uncaring, arrogant wait staff in an empty restaurant, literally 3 tables taken out of about 50...and I had to call them to ask them if...

Food is of reasonable quality but the choice is limited. Atmosphere is not so good when there is a game the TV is really loud.

We found Chives as we needed to use a coupon and they participated. The restaurant is in the Crown Plaza hotel and you wouldn't know it was there unless you were looking for it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and seating very comfortable. We ordered the braised short rib appetizer to share ($10). It's served over a simple polenta and... More

This restaurant is attractive and has a very interesting and diverse menu. The food is good and the service is adequate and the prices are reasonable. The problem is that it is empty. We recently went on a Saturday evening - when most restaurants would be packed. We were the ONLY ones there at 7:30!! It is part of a... More
