Eat here after a transatlantic flight, the sandwiches were great and the place was buzzing, wasn't here long enough to return but would willingly do so

This is a very nice restaurant with great food and service. Good selection of appetizers and different seafood. I would eat here everyday if I can. I highly recommend this place for a small meal, drink or a full blown dinner.

Trendy little restaurant with a casual/comfortable atmosphere. Nice bar area as you walk in, friendly and informed staff. The menu is varied so you can get pretty much anything you want from specialty sandwiches to filet mignon. If the weather permits there is outdoor seating. First time there. I loved it and would definitely go back.

My girlfriend and I had gone to this restaurant for a seventy-fifth birthday party several weeks ago, (they have a party room), and decided try it out on our own for lunch. We were not disappointed. They have small plates, tapas, if that is what you desire and, of course, a full menu with some unusual items. I must say... More

The drink menu is great too...the Man-mosa was a cool way for our dudes to join in. I had the Amelia's omelette (I forget the name exactly) but it came with a delicious piece of French toast. Check out my... More

Great location. Food is pretty good. Generous portions. Been here a few times, sometimes catch the friendlier staff and sometimes I get a not so peppy hostess. It's not my first choice of places to eat.

With all the new restaurants popping up in our neighborhood due to rapid gentrification. Emilia's remains our very favorite place for brunch or a casual dinner. What makes this establishment so special is the staff (very friendly, professional, courteous staff) and of course the food. Drinks are delicious. Brunch is half the price you would pay in the City and... More
