Trapuzzano's is new -- in the old Max & Erma's and more recently Elbow Room space on Walnut Street. They have only been open for a month, and they still consider this to be their soft opening, and they are indeed working out some kinks,...More

An evening out for a fine meal means visiting The Elbow Room. An elevator ride to the 2nd floor and you're there. We had made a reservation for two, greeted as soon as we entered and lead to our table. The lighting was bright enough...More

Pleasant bar. After trying to find a wine from the menu, the bartender offered a very nice Chardonnay which we lapped up. We ordered three appetizers - wings, fries and a wedge salad, which were nicely prepared, hot and generous. Good service, good food!

Dropped in around 8pmfor a late bite. Waited over 30 minutes for a table and then another twenty before we saw a waitress. Food took an inordinate amount of time to come. Fries would have been delicious, except they were room temp. Burger was ok....More
