    Dinner following an opera matinee. Had a reservation and were seated quickly. Spacious outdoor seating. Appreciated the heat lamp as temperature was mid-50s. Food was delicious.

    The food and service were excellent. The management was on top of it from seating to serving. We were seated immediately and service was polite and prompt. We had calamari that had basil and cilantro, lime. It was so good - tender hot and crisp. Then we had a shrimp pasta dish with squid ink pasta. It was homemade and the shrimp were cut into pieces. Very delicious and nice portions. Not too big or small. The prices were decent. The cocktails were delicious! I had a gin, pomegranate and Prosecco drink and my husband had a midtown Manhattan. The only downfall about the restaurant and it’s a big one. It was too noisy. The walls are tile and there were tons of people. So next time we will sit outside- it was much quieter there we noticed.

    This used to be my go to place before ballet- noisy but low key and decent food. Unfortunately the last 2x I've eaten here the value has dramatically fallen to the point where I just feel totally ripped off. I understand prices are up but $33 for "steak" salad the same size as a $17 salad with 4 tiny pieces of steak added ! Similar disbelief about a tasty short rib special I tried to share with my sister that also had only 4 tiny bites of meat for full entree price. I won't be back for a while

    Steak was burned and way too expensive. Pasta was too salty and too much garlic. Chef, shame on you! This deserves more attention and cooking skills!

    I’ve eaten here a few times now, and while it’s always fine, it’s never better than that even though I really want it to be. Also, for fries to come out looking like they’ve been under a heat lamp for an hour is disappointing. Service itself was great, though. Just don’t expect anything terrific to eat.

    I had brunch with two friends who are blind. The service we received was great--respectful, unobtrusive, just helpful enough without trying to do too much. My compliments to the waitstaff and the training they received; we were very happy.

    The food never disappoints. We regularly lunch there and the menu is varied enough to please everyone…. The fried calamari are the best in town ! One significant issue: The tiles on the walls and wood furniture makes it a very noisy restaurant… where one has to scream across the table …. No soft fabric to muffle the sounds…

    The service at our most recent visit was truly outstanding! Sadly, the noise level (always painful indoors, so we only eat here when the weather permits outdoor dining) was so loud outdoors that we had to move our table - perhaps because most of your "outdoor" area is almost completely enclosed by sealed plastic windows. Otherwise, the food and service were excellent.
