Was here for a private cocktail party followed by dinner. The service was excellent and the servers were very attentive. The finger foods and the main meal was good too. I especially liked their hot deserts - very creamy but not too filling.

My co-worked and I sat at the bar and enjoyed a drink before dinner. We ended up staying at the bar while watching the giants game to enjoy... More

Town is our family's favorite restaurant! We love the food, especially the desserts. It's always delicious. The service is great. The prime rib, the skirt steak, the salmon...is fabulous. But we really just go their for the bread pudding...

Went on a Tuesday evening, made reservation 3 weeks in advance. This place is very busy, great service and good wine&food. We had crispy garlic cauliflower, Surf & Turf, pistachio crusted Alaskan halibut & 6 layer chocolate cake, all good!

We went to the restaurant at 8pm. Very nice looking. But remember to make a reservation before travel there. Very frequented place. But worth every minute and dollar spend. Superb service. Best New York steak outside of New York. Sry big apple that is the truth. Regards Dirk

Town is a very good restaurant and some menu items are outstanding, but the restaurant is so noisy it prevents conversation and enjoying meal. There is sidewalk seating which is less noisy and always has a wait list. Off times are best for dining.

We visit Town approximately 4 times a year. We have always enjoyed the food and service. The staff is always friendly, efficient, and professional. The food is excellent. An enjoyable restaurant experience. We particularly enjoy sitting at the counter watching the cooks at work while we eat. Recommended to be sure!!
