Great place for lunch or dinner. Delicious food & excellent martinis. Must try the 3501 martini and crispy chicken dumplings! Ask for a seat outside on nice weather days.

Excellent restaurant in Allentown. Food is very good, plating is nice and drink menu is somewhat extensive. Nice outdoor seating area, small but nice. The loft is also a nice area to sit for dinner. Menu is expensive.

I enjoyed a nice dinner tonight at this restaurant while I'm on business. The food was rather good, albeit, pricey. It would be nice for them to offer selections from different price points. Entrees were anywhere between $25 and $38. I would have ordered dessert if it didn't sent me over $50 with tip and no drinks.

My sister and wife are allergic to gluten (celiac disease). Our waitress along with the chef worked up a menu to match their particular likes. For appetizers, both had grilled shrimp with tomato jam which was excellent. My wife had duck and my sister had salmon both were cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, my meal which was the veal medallions was... More

Put this place in New York or Chicago and it would be one of those "must-go-to" places. It certainly is in Allentown. Great food, great service. Two seating areas to choose from. The "New Section" is trendy, lively, and has more energy. The "old section" is quieter and more peaceful. I'm an old fogie and enjoy the quiet side more.... More
