“Poor food and service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

We went there before a show and it took forever to get seated. It then took forever to get a waiter to take our order. When the food finally came, it was poor. We ordered margherita pizzas for the kids and they could not eat them because they had red pepper flakes. I checked the menu online later and confirmed that this was not mentioned as part of the ingredients (and since when would they be?). In addition, one would expect the waiter to inform us of that. Nothing was done when we mentioned it to the bus boy (because the waiter was never around). My husband's steak was supposed to have some sort of red wine reduction and instead, the sauce was sweet. My pesto pasta was not good at all. The kids did at least enjoy the tiramisu. The waiter was impolite when taking our order and giving us the bill. No "thank-you" or anything, just handed it to us. We wish we had spent our over $140 and our daughter's birthday elsewhere.

“Delicious and Healthy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

I had delicious halibut served with healthy fresh vegetables and was completely satisfied. My husband had the rack of lamb and asparagus, the vegetable coming as a surprise since the menu listed mine as asparagus, not his. The starch served with the lamb wasn't available, so he was given a choice and choose mashed potatoes. That's why we were surprised when our vegetables were switched from the menu listing. The service was great. We were there early on a Friday and the only people in the restaurant. Other times we've been there, it's been crowded. Tiramasu for desert was great, rich and satisfying.

“Terrible "version" of Lasagna!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

I ordered the Lasagna, as it is a classic dish and always good. Boy, was I wrong. When it arrived, it was just a heap of Lasagna noodles with a meat sauce slopped on top! No ricotta, no nice cheeses. The whole thing was tasteless. I didn't say anythng because we were in a hurry. Your "Chef" needs to go back to cooking school!

“Great evening all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2011

The food was delicious and the wait staff superb. It was very busy as everyone there was going on to the theater. Even so the service was perfect. We plan to go back again.

“After waiting, no meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

My husband and I had a reservation at this restaurant at 6:30pm thinking it would give us plenty of time for the 8:00 theater show we had tickets for. When we arrived at 6:30, the host told us that they were running late and there were no tables for us yet. We told the host our situation of our tickets and he assured us that there would be plenty of time to eat. While waiting at the bar, we observed that only a few tables had food on it. We should have known then that this would soon be our situation.
When we finally were sat at our table (15 min after our reservation time), we quickly ordered our food thinking that we still had an hour to eat. That was the last we saw of waiter and we sat there for another 45 minutes without our entrees or service. Looking around the restaurant other tables were in our same situation of not having their meals. I finally had to hunt down the manager to tell her that we had to leave to get to our show. She was apologetic and comped our meal (or lack of) as she did with other tables in our area. As we were leaving (an hour and 20 min after arriving) our waiter showed back up to our table and delivered our entrees. This whole experience was frustrating and unacceptable for a restaurant in the theater area. We would never go back to this restaurant nor recommend it to friends going out for a night at the theater.
