We went to No. 246 for dinnerWe went to No. 246 for dinner after my son's college graduation. The restaurant was nearly full, but we were seated immediately. The service was great and the food outstanding. We will go back often.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday TraditionMy friend and I celebrate our birthdays here every year. It's a fun place with amazing food. We usually go for lunch, so I'm not sure about the scene at night, but during the day it's great.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA new FavoriteOn my first visit I sat at the bar on a Friday night. It was busy, but I had great conversations and the people were real foodies. I never order chicken, but did so at the advice of the bar tender. Excellent!! The next time I went on a Wednesday for an early dinner. It was not as crowed. I ordered the beef. Excellent! The wait staff is very knowledgeable of the food and wine.
The only down side was the seating against the wall is a little close. I almost felt like I was dining in Europe. But, it worked out well because we could then discuss our meals when they arrived!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a first date or a memorNo. 246 is a great place to meet someone special -- and a place you'll want to return to with that someone. Great, interesting menu, wonderful service, knowledgeable staff, strong wine list, and terriffic ambience. No. 246 has it all.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM246 has terrific food and246 has terrific food and drink selection. The tables are close and the noise level is high, so it is not a great fit for a quiet romantic dinner. We had a group of 4 and it was great for socializing. The service was excellent. The food tasted delicious, but the portion size was uneven between the dishes - one of us had gnocchi and there were 12 pieces of noodle in a large bowl. This may have been uncharacteristic - last time we were there we had this dish and we took home an extra serving size!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThough it was my first timeThough it was my first time there, the whole experience felt amazing. I shall return!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!This was our 1st trip to 246,and we will be going back!Our waiter gave great food and wine recommendations and was very helpful! The toast was amazing and so was the cheese, wine and gnocchi!We didn't have dessert but I heard the donuts were also delicious! The outdoor dining area looked nice, but had an additional wait so we sat in a small table by the bar. The restaurant was beautiful and we cant wait to go back with friends!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPasta and pizza are very goodPasta and pizza are very good however taste different depending on who is working in the kitchen. Cocktails and wine list are also very good.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMComing Back for More!Great first visit on a busy Monday night! Attentive and friendly service from all staff that waited on us. The food was delicious and prepared as advertised or as ordered. The pizza entrees are big enough to share, as are the salads. The Cannelloni and Gnocchi dishes we ordered were excellent (really tasty and fresh!) and we will definitely go back for more!! The wine & beer list is above average and the option to purchase very good wines by the glass was a nice surprise.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dishes featuring seasonalGreat dishes featuring seasonal spring vegetables!

Seating is often much later than reservation. Loud.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite pasta placeExcellent food, excellent service. Wonderful pasta. I'm looking forward to my next visit.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food at high volumeYes, this place is noisy but oh, the food. We went Sunday evening after being worn out by Easter. The restaurant was half full and it was already pretty loud. The brick walls just throw sound back at you. But the food we had was really outstanding. Highlights were the crisps (small toasted appetizers) and the meatball appetizer (I really WANT that recipe!). Main courses - sausage gnocchi and spaghetti - were excellent, especially the gnocchi. I hear they're discontinuing that dish, which I think is a mistake. We will definitely be back, loud or not.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNeal, our waiter was fantastic.Neal, our waiter was fantastic.

Pleasing slightly Bohemian environment with great decor, finishes and space.
Service was impeccable. Price point is very reasonable.
Selection and variety in all food areas pleasing. Pasta is superb. Nice, well done pairing suggestions of libations with food. Appetizer's and dessert's well worth a return visit.
One personal preference that I would like different would be lower tone background music; somewhat jarring and invasive.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIn two words - loved it.In two words - loved it. Food was delicious, service was top notch, wine selection was plentiful, noise level was too high for normal conversation (there were two of us and we had to lean in to hear each other).3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM(Didn't go outside so didn't(Didn't go outside so didn't notice the outdoor dining. Items above not checked because no reference to those. )
We had a lovely experience - nice, friendly and efficient wait staff and hostess, wonderful and interesting food choices. (the meatball, cheese, salami, and tomato soup for appetizers) The specialty pasta dish was too small for my husband, but very tasty. My chicken was undercooked, but not to the point of sending it back and the flavors were good. Delicious cheesecake and dessert drink. Ambiance exceptional.
Thank you!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were great. WeFood and service were great.
We did not like that we were on top of the people next to us.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good and ourFood was very good and our server was so knowledgeable. Good craft cocktails at the bar and very hip place.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious dinnerPossibly one of the best dinners we have had in a very long time. Good balance of choices on the menu. Many restaurants that are considered good put bacon and ham in so many of their dishes that it makes it hard to choose items on the menu. Thankfully No. 246 have not fallen into this trap. Excellent salads, delicious calamari and house made pastas and fish. Desserts were sized just right and the dessert menu was innovative and different from others that I have recently seen. Wouldn't have changed a thing. Wait staff were attentive without being disruptive to a very good night out.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
