Location and contact

At Satellite, fresh ingredients & hearty plates are always in orbit. Modern meets retro on the menu (contemporary spins on classic American faves) & on the walls (cool bistro with a futuristic '60s feel). Outfitted with sleek table tops, retro-mod chairs & plenty of lounge-worthy booths, Satellite is a versatile dining destination that's equally comfy for brunch OR for a Weekend Night On-The-Town. Satellite...Eat. Drink. Orbit.

The food presented is fresh, thoughtfully prepared and quickly served. Service is consistently friendly and attentive. Great drinks and wine, too. Grilled...More

since we've been here..... and not sure why! Satellite has always been easy in / easy out, consistently good and reasonably priced. The one thing I would ask of them would be to expand the menu - it's not expansive. Maybe that's why it's been...More

Met colleagues for drinks. Had the House cab and it was good. Quiet enough to have a conversation. Good location.

There is nothing outstanding about this place, but it is very popular--many "regulars" in the bar area. The atmosphere reminds you of the TV series "Cheers." The bar is a large "U" shape and there are many tables for drinking groups. There is food service...More
