I was treating my family to a night out (including hotel stay) in downtown. It was a last minute thing and I did struggle to get a reservation for 7 people anywhere. I did reserve a table here before reading the online reviews. We arrived at the restaurant at 8pm on a Friday night and I have to be honest... More

I visited this restaurant after seeing a matinee theater. It was horrible from the beginning. We had a party of 8 and no reservations. The manager at the door told the person trying to see if we could eat there that we really should have reservation to eat there with a party of 8 on a Saturday but he would... More

8/7/2016 Visit for the first time First, We were able to get FREE street parking. The girl at the front DID NOT greet us or smile, just asked if we had reservations, took us to our table next to the window, view outside and right next to a storage area covered by a black curtain employees kept visiting. The seating... More

Karen and I had a great time. As always, busy before a special event. We told the hostess that we were short on time. She recommended eating at the bar. We did and Domingo (Bartender) took care of us, even though it was crazy busy. Good food and great time. AE

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place. It was OK. Very crowded early as many theatre goers eat here before the shows. The menu had a good variety, and the food was ok- but not great. My husband had the lasagna and felt it was not very good. I had the grilled chicken with a side of spaghetti with... More

The atmosphere is very nice. The food was good but I've had better Italian food at less expensive places. Tres Leches was excellent.

We ate there yesterday before a concert. Service was quick and the waiters were on their game. While they were quite efficient, the fettucine chicken alfredo was lackluster. No flavor and the sauce was possibly the most bland alfredo I have ever had. I didn't eat half of it because, frankly, it was tasteless. I added salt, more sauce, parmesan,but... More

HIGHLY recommend the Sunday Jazz brunch with unlimited peach bellinis. Lasagna was wonderful. Alfredo sauce was not to my liking. The omelettes and definitely the waffles are a must have.

Late night after show pizza & beer. Needed a bite after the show. Easy to get to from our hotel & very good value for our buck. Delicous pizza, large for $18. Can't beat it.
