delicious food and quick service. Love the décor. Comfy booths and swinging chairs from the ceiling on the second floor. Cant go wrong here.

OK, I am prejudice - I will be the first one to admit that. For me, I am totally unimpressed by those who serve Runway Model quantity of food at premium prices. The place was full of young professionals, dressed to impress and be seen. My son suggested that we go there for our birthdays which are a week apart.... More

Late lunch looking for lighter fare. We selected the Veggie Burger & the Lettuce Wraps. Both excellent but still a filling meal for a late lunch. This stop was recommended by the hotel for the small plate menu. Glad we went!

Nice variety on the menu and good service. I had a steak which was very nicely cooked (rare). My companion had some great tuna. Both dishes were of very high quality. It's a strange place, though - not quite a diner as I would have expected, not quite a fancy restaurant, but a very interesting decor!

We had the same selection at this restaurant that we did across the street at another restaurant. We found that the drinks and appetizers were better. We had calamari, Asian fries and spinach. I had a Brazilian drink with rum and a frozen watermelon ice ball, my bf had a dirty martini. We enjoyed our food so much that we... More

This diner had amazing food! We were there for dinner on a business trip and had many different dishes served in small portions family style. Their Thai chicken, sea bass, and steak were fabulous. I also loved their desserts as well. We were seated in the back room, which was very retro and fun. I am so glad I had... More

ever on a Gluten Free quest.. they fry the french fires in their own oil. and they are exceptionally good. Omelettes were super- really relaxed place.. we were 1/2 hour early meeting friends on a sunday for brunch but were immediately seated - no pressure. I'd go all the time if I were lucky enough to live nearby. Fresh Iced... More

We stopped here for lunch and were glad we did. It’s like being in a retro diner with a modern twist. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the food and drinks delicious, though slightly more expensive than they ought to be. Would definitely recommend, and will definitely go back.

Open late night. Front area is like a Diner with some more conventional rooms off the diner. Cozy. Great location around local entertainment. Staff was quick to serve, knowledgeable about the menu and extremely helpful throughout the meal. Talbe for two are pretty small if you order three or four topas so there is bit of plate juggling but it... More
