Great food - wonderful atmosphere

We started at the bar which was very crowded due to a home basketball game. The bartenders were very attentive making great wine suggestions. The wait staff was equally attentive and helpful in navigating the broad menu. We started out with a pizza and grilled octopus for appetizer - both of... read more

We stopped by on a Friday night after visiting the Horseshoe Casino. We ate in the bar and had one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We started off with the Lobster appetizer - each bite was as delicious as the next which left me wanting for more. We had the octopus salad, which my husband... More

Dined for lunch at the recommendation of a client and really enjoyed the quiet, relaxed ambiance. We sat at the welcoming host's suggestion of a window booth seat, barside which was surprisingly quiet since the buzzsaw workers were busy outside preparing the streets for renovations. The menu offers a wide variety of preparations that are enticingly explained. Any questions were... More

Chinato has a wonderful date night atmosphere, with a fairly sophisticated menu that won't make you go broke. For the offerings, I thought it was very fairly priced.

Had Work Christmas party here and it was all of ours first time here (7 people). The place has low light lighting and very cozy feel. The menu has a variety of selections which half you can't pronounce. The server Blake was on point along with all the other bussers than constantly stop by to fill up water cups. The... More

Its the holiday season, most service workers have been busy since Thanksgiving, but the disheveled busser, hasty runners and disappearing server were the trifecta this night. The busser left more water on the table than in my glass and never bothered to either apologize nor clean it up, reached into a conversation to literally drop bread from outreached shoulder level...

The tag. Pasta with beef tongue was simply ok at best. Rather bland sauce, and so runny it's a good thing it was served in a bowl. The octopus salad was horrible, extremely fishy. It was a Monday evening so it may have been left over from Saturday. It came out so fast it had to be pre-made. The charcuterie... More

Service workers were uninformed on the menu. Also very anxious to clear plates before everyone had finished. Food ordered was very tasty but only lukewarm.

We stopped here for an early, light dinner and glad they were serving at 4PM because so many places in downtown do not serve dinner until 5PM. We sat in the bar area at a booth by the window and our server was Patrick. He was friendly and knowledgeable and answered my questions with patience and great detail. My husband... More
