“Appalling”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

The service was absolutely appalling. Three conflicting menus and no agreement as to what is actually available. Took four attempts to order for three people. Extremely unnecessary use of microphone. Long wait for mediocre food. Will not revisit.

“Not the place for a quiet dinner”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Four of us came for dinner and discussion. Dinner was fine, but it was almost impossible to have any discussion. We asked our waiter if he could turn down the volume of the music so we could at least hear each other talk, but as soon as he turned it down, someone else turned it back up. After playing this game 3 times, we switched tables to one out on the front porch and it was still pretty loud.

It seems like a great place to go if you are wanting to party a bit or if you don't need to have any real conversation, but that was not what we were looking for.

“Tasty and homely”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Tucked down a side street (you'll need directions to find it!) The Living Room is a really pleasant surprise worth going out of your way for. Lovely food, friendly staff and a homely atmosphere.
