Excellent service on a very busy night. Pollo Puntanesca w/o polenta, was delicious. So much food that I had it for dinner the next day. My wife had the lamb shanks and she too, had the rest for dinner the next day. Soup was excellent.
2 observations;
Tables are too close to each other. I can understand that this is necessary to charge the prices to keep the servers and chefs from leaving to work in Detroit. However, this really increases the noise factor. Everyone has to talk louder to hear the person to whom you are talking to.
Floor is somewhat slippery if you are wearing the wrong type of shoes. Also causes the chairs to slide in an unexpected manner.
Paul, our server was top notch. Ask to sit in his section. He's worth an NICE tip.

Continuing with the Baldwin group tradition, this place is a more modern style. Great food and a nice bar. Happy hours Mon-Thurs and Sunday, with discounted food offerings at the bar. Friendly and attentive staff

Four in our group arrived about 30 minutes early for our 6:30 pm cooking class only to be told the class was the evening before. We pointed out that there were two dates for the class and we had purchased tickets for day two. The manager realized their mistake and quickly informed Chef Gabriella who immediately got involved and offered to make the meal the class was taught the evening prior as well as provide the recipes. Over the next 1-1/2 hours we were treated to a meal of wonderful Spanish cuisine of which all were delicious. At the end of our meal and because of their error we were offered to schedule another class during 2019 at no additional charge. In addition, they provided each of us with a $25 gift certificate. They did this for all 16 class participants this evening. What could have been a disappointing experience turned into a wonderful evening with another to look forward to. Not only did Testa Barre take responsibility for their oversight, but they also went above and beyond making a fantastic recovery.

I was undecided as to what to order, selected the Ragu. It was delicious, tender meat, rich sauce and homemade pasta. The service, as always was outstanding. I like J. Baldwin's, but have a new favorite in Testa Barre
