We've been to Donna's at least six or eight times; each visit a bit more disappointing than the last, and yesterday was likely the final time. Service is slow and blase. The server walked by our table at least six times without offering to refill coffee. Food more of a mixed bag. My wife had a salad and gave it good marks, although it was small for an entree-sized salad ($12). My omelette was over-salted, over-cooked and over-priced ($14). The patio is nice with lots of shade (no view, thought - it overlooks a parking lot). There was a large party going on, however, which was highly distracting. I think I'm "done with Donna."

We arrived to the hotel which donnas is attached to. At 9:50 the kitchen closes at 10. They still took us. Never felt rushed. Waiter came over and helped with selections. Good food when you are starving

Friends planned a dinner with us at Donna's. Checked out the menu before hand and thought it was a bit over-priced and pretentious but arrived thinking it would probably at least be decent food. Sadly, the food was frankly awful. Cold roasted vegetables, indistinct pasta, poorly prepared fish and other mediocre at best offerings. Our waiter was nonchalant almost to the point of being rude. A woman who must have been the staff manager was loud and obnoxious while making preparations for how the restaurant should be set up for the next day. Our table was inconveniently located by the work area (I would rather have eaten in a crowded subway station). I am all for portion control but the the 4 small pieces of bland bread and tablespoon of olive oil was barely adequate for four people. The restaurant was so cold I had to go outside twice just to get warm enough to finish the meal. We will never return to Donna's. I would rather eat a micro-waved meal. Oh yeah and it was pretentious and over-priced.

The restaurant was not crowded and the food came out cold. It was taken back and microwaved but very disappointing. No excuse for cold food.

Prompt service, and really good food! I had the black bean soup, which was good, but the real winner was the salad, topped with pine nuts and portabello mushroom slices. My friend and I decided to split it, and our waitress very helpfully divided it for us before bringing it out. A nice place to go--I'd return for sure!
