We have stopped by to grab a quick bite at the bar before Theater. Service was very attentive and fast. My friend order Gnocchi and Brussel Sprouts. I wanted salad with some protein. Menu had salad with option to add chicken or shrimp. I asked if instead of chicken I could have steak. What I got is a gigantic piece... More

went with family. had the steak was overcooked and not very tasty. my wife had the gnocchi. she said hers was not that good either. the brussels sprouts appetizer was quite good. the server recommended the chocolate chip cookies for dessert also very underwhelming. my coffee was lukewarm. all in all not very good.

A recent hike in prices, coupled with the service, which is slow and often haphazard, has put me off ever returning for dinner. The restaurant is without charm, echo-y and so loud it's difficult to hear or be heard. The wooden schoolchairs are uncomfortable. A plate of ordinary gnocchi with tomato sauce costs $34 as a main course, which is,... More

Lovely restaurant recommended by friend. Ordered $18 Eggs Benedict, looked delicious , nice portion with greens on side. The problem was stale sour dough bread that required a steak knife( not supplied) to cut into. Never had to eat EB with a spoon. Tasteless Hollandise. Slice of Boar's Head style Black Forest Ham. Overpriced and disappointing to say the least.... More

Enjoyed a good brunch with a "brunch" Sunday morning vibe. Super good burger and soup. Definitely make a reservation on the weekend.

I loved the seeded baguette. Now it is no longer sold. I won't be back. Maybe they are saving money by simplifying their offerings, but this is a bakery. Come on guys.

The restaurant used to be very good and because it was convenient to work, I went often. The food was getting worse and worse, and last night I tried it again. Hard to believe it's gone downhill this much. Caesar salad just soggy, chopped up romaine with an inferior dressing and croutons so rock-hard that they were inedible. And they... More

Large group affair. Looking forward to this particular restaurant, but a little wary as I had heard about bad service. Long story short, nice lunch, way over-priced for what we had. Waitress was awful. You felt like you were interrupting her. Desserts great, but took a while. Won't visit again.

I visited this restaurant for a Sunday brunch and found the menu interesting and diverse. The food delivered on the menu description and was very enjoyable, along with a great cafe latte. Nice outdoor area heated with gas radiators, albeit a little close to the car traffic. But the hostess: quite possibly the worst attitude I have ever encountered. No... More

We went to Mayfield Bakery for many years and loved their variety and great breads. Unortunately, Mayfield is now reducing their portfolio - especially the excellent French Epi and the Walnut Levin are being eliminated. We will not go there any more - again a great food place is being sacrificed for cost reason! For such a service we can... More
