“Do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Everything is always fresh and the specials are always top notch. The servers know the menu and wine list and are always accommodating. The managers just want to give you a A-One experience. I eat here often and highly recommend it. Don't go there to eat, go there to dine.

“After Show early meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We recently went to a afternoon show and then went to the restaurant for their price fixed menu,which is available from 5:15-5:45 pm,a small window of time.The meal was very good and the selection of 3-4 entrees was also good,you get 3 courses for $18.50 which was a very good value.I had the Salmon,which was excellent,and the pasta and pork were also good.The only small compliant was the beet salad had too much vinegar in the dressing.The waiter was very professional and did a great job of serving us.Will return in the future.

“Best Service, Food, Dining Experience hands down says this local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

We just had a baby and chose MA's for our first night out as a couple. Justin was our server and went thru the whole menu to help me determine which dishes were dairy free and which the cheese or butter weren't integral - not easy with Italian food. He knew the menu like the back of his hand. I had the clam pasta special my husband had the kansas city strip special. Justin helped us with wine pairings for both - exquisite! The best service and food I've had there and we've been going there for about 7 years. 5 stars!

“Great food, great ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our last night at HHI my daughter and I chose to return to Michael Anthony's. Food is great, wine selection very nice, restaurant is attractive. The wait staff did a great job both times we ate there. Our last visit the chef stopped by the table.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

The decor we found very OLD fashioned! Tables in the center were nicely laid out, the ones at the walls just had place mats?? The food and service were soso. I had rubbery baby calamaries which were drowning in tomato sauce. My wife had the carpaccio. Our waiter explained at length that the chef had done this and that to it to make it extra fantastico. The salat on it was a sad affair and the parmesan looked like processed cheese hanging all over the place. The scallops were good though. All in all there are lots of better ones on HHI
