Great service, nice ambiance, classic delicious food. This place is pricy but worth it. Beautifully prepared dishes. My advice? Choose anything. It's all wonderful. I have nothing bad to say about this place.

Food was very good but service was poor. Even though they weren't really busy it took forever to get served and they completely forgot someone's meal! Nice building but needs a little work.

Though pricey, this is now my favorite restaurant. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We shared cheese fondue as an appetizer and added salads. Finally, I had the lamb and it was cooked perfectly. The sauce was delicious. The server and host were friendly and the service was excellent. We will be back.

Was VERY excited to try this restaurant in celebration of my boyfriend getting out of the Army. There were 4 of us - it took 20 minutes for us to be greeted and receive menus - over 2 hours to receive our food (which made us miss our movie). $200 bill was salmon, two pasta dishes and a steak and...

When a customer asks for a little more gorgonzola for a salad and your waitress charges extra for it...you lost the customer for life. At the prices charged, regardless of how good your food is, what could have been a simple gesture towards a customer, turns into a loss to you...does that make sense?

Had wanted to ear here for a long time. Pasta was ordinary. Prices were very high. Service was poor. Waited a long time for bread. Water glasses were only filled half way and then sat empty for minutes. Creme brulle was thick. Won't go back.

Our go to place for a good meal is Nina. We always start with the Duck Lasagna. Lasagna noodles with mushrooms, duck and goat cheese with a marinara sauce; how could you go wrong. The entrees are always delicious. Steaks are cooked perfectly every time, pasta dishes are great as well.

My wife and I like to try new places so we decided to try Nina. It blew our expectations away. I had a Filet that was probably one of the top I've ever had. Service was good. Drinks were just right. Wine selection was well done. We will be back lots more to try on the menu

Came here for an afternoon lunch, service was okay nothing over the top ordered the Thanksgiving Sandwich it was so good the melted Brie on walnut raisin bread was the perfect pairing. My friends ordered Nina's chicken sandwich which looked equally amazing, and the Hudson chicken panini even though it's misspelled on the menu it looked well received. I will... More
