Two years ago I went to this place and could not get served. I decided to give it a try this year. All I wanted was a glass of red wine - the first waiter I spoke to said this was ok but just brought water. The second waiter I spoke to took my order. Then a waitress came over... More

Very cute, clean reasonably priced restaurant with a variety of dinner and snack options. My macrobiotic salad was delicious as well as the filet quesadillas drinks were great. Very pleasant service.

We came here for lunch since it was across from where we parked and I hadn't received a parking ticket on this trip to the hospital. The food was good but the service lacked. It was almost empty for lunch and we still spent a lot of time waiting for a server. The outdoor seating was nice with the stroller... More

The dinner at Mumbles was good. The appetizer of Truffle Mac n Cheese was tasty but not memorable. The staff was uninformed and inattentive. Good menu but it doesn't leave you wanting to return

The decor is nice and the service is pleasant. So what's the problem? While the menu is interesting, the food is meh. The portions are exceptionally small. I ordered the Sunday special, which is a pasta dish with a salad (or soup) and a dessert. The salad was a few leaves with a bit of tomato and cucumber. The bread... More

We stopped here on the way to Webster Hall for a quick bite. I ordered the lamb burger. Prompt service, food was good, and good price. Would have liked to see more variety in the menu, perhaps. Overall it was a nice random dinner stop!

This was the closest place to my budget hotel down the block for a light dinner. I ordered one dish, which in an almost deserted restaurant, took a while to arrive. Said dish was a flatbread pizza, well-executed. Waitress was lovely and a range of folks were eating there that night, from families to couples to singles. Decor is pub-like,... More

This little restaurant was on the corner opposite our very basic hotel, and turned out to be a real gem. A varied, interesting European/American menu. Cheerful service and excellent value - so good we went two nights running.

I have been here several times over the years. Basic American fare, fish, meat, burgers with many pasta options. They have good specials throughout the week. That is the best time to go.
