The restaurant is beautifully appointed with white linen cloths and great lighting. The service was professional and friendly. However, is there really any excuse for serving the Caesar salad with grilled chicken that was pink--e.g. raw? Their prices are steep, but if the dining experience were special, I would have considered it a good value. It seemed a bit tacky... More

I have gone for lunch several times with coworkers and always like it and enjoy the setting, food and the servers are very good as well. I went for dinner ONE time with my husband and the service was TERRIBLE. We sat in the back room and had a waitress that in the entire room ONLY had us - everyone... More

Three of us had a very pleasant dinner experience. First time for all of us. Food was excellent and service was good. It is an upscale place and you do pay for the quality of your food. Some unique menu items. This is the kind of place I'll enjoy once or twice a year,

The service here is lackluster at best. They couldn't decide where to seat us or who would serve us. The servers squabbled and our drink order didn't get placed. Then, the bartender was off test-driving a sports car and our drinks didn't arrive for nearly 25 minutes. The food was good, but couldn't make up for the lack of care... More

Really fabulous food. The server was knowledgeable of the menu and specials and really helped us. The place has wonderful atmosphere but the last time I was there I almost fell through the floor. They are really in need of repair. Only reason for not getting a 5 star.

This was a modestly unpleasant visit. A group of four of us had dinner at Nina's on a Saturday, early in November. We'd called ahead to ask about whether they participated in the local Restaurant Week promotion (a prix fixe special) and whether it would still be possible to order off the regular menu. We got a slightly-snark "yes" to... More
