Great service. The food was truly delicious. The portions are fairly small but it was just enough for me.

We have had 2 experiences at this restaurant. 1) we had excellent service, a well prepared meal, although I felt it was pricey, we had an enjoyable experience. 2) we had a reservation, got seated immediately and ignored for approxiimately for the next half hour - so we left. You figure it out.

So 8 of us college buddies got together and Nina's was recommended. Everything else was fantastic. Great ambiance, appetizers fab, short ribs, steak tips, etc. Three of us had salmon with quinoia and it was boring. Everyone else loved their dinner.

When you look at the menu you see offerings and dishes with names you would expect to see in an upscale NYC restaurant. Another thing you immediately notice when... More

The food was excellent, service very good. I tried one of the craft brews but found it had a lousy after taste. Overall I try to like this restaurant, but my wife and I find the food quality and service to be very spotty. Some nights - like last night - we love it. Other nights not so much. There's... More

A great place to stop by during lunch hour for fine cuisine. The service is friendly and quick. Although a little on the expensive side, it is well worth the price to pay.
