My wife and I attended a show. Service was slow. We had one drink the entire show. Tables on each side of us had at least two rounds plus food. Servers walked past us all night without stopping or checking on us.

The staff, the place, the drinks, the food, and the price was all great. The comedy was out of the park great.

She delivered as expected and did not disappoint the audience. I've seen her in funnier sketches before and last night's set was okay but I hoped for some new material or storyline. Overall, the show was worth it and we had a great time.

Always enjoy every comedian. We typically get dinner here. The food is bar food (you are in a bar) but the food is good and usually quick. The food and drinks are typically priced for any comedy show. Wait staff is attentive and is there...More

Comedians were funny for sure but eat dinner first. Food was mediocre and 4 at our table, one meal came after the other 3 had finished. Server not personable to say the least. Not even a comped glass of wine for the misstep.

It's a beautiful space and other than raking the audience, the back half of the space makes you feel far, far away. Felt like I was at the Hollywood Bowl!() There is no "intimacy" to the space. Look comedians are an act. Stand up is...More

You will need to get there early and talk to the host. They are the ones that assign your setting.

The show was about 2 hours when we went. We bought our tickets online the day before and just redeemed them there. I believe the price fluctuates depending on the day of the week and number of tickets already sold. I say... More
