    We enjoyed the Grilled Bleu Cheese sandwich and the BBQ Pulled Chicken sandwich, which come with choice of salad or fries. We opted for salad, a tasty blend of mixed greens, garbanzo beans and tomatoes. Reasonably priced at $11 each. Brewed ice tea at only $2 is a neighborhood bargain. Will return for $5 Happy Hour tastes/drinks.

    It was a last minute find, as it was a partner with the symphony, which allowed you free valet parking, plus they give you a coupon if you give them your e- mail address. The food was tasty, and the portions were just about right. The Polenta that we had for an appetizer for very good. There is a reason that the valet parking is free with tickets to the symphony, the valet guy left at 9 pm, and since the symphony gets out about 10, the keys were supposed to be left with the hostess. Where the car was parked was down some back stairs, which the guy that was helping us didn't seem to know, he pointed towards the elevator and said "down there". The door to the stairs was next to the elevator.

    From the hostess to the pastry chef, everyone in this restaurant will make you feel welcome, comfortable, and satisfied. We were every waiter's nightmare: obnoxious 20-something year olds with a groupon, celebrating a friend's b-day... hehehe The food was delicious, good portions: crispy, tasty calamari; tender pork ribs; enormous rib-eye; tasty salmon, etc. The service was superb! It's rather pricey, I must admit, but definitely worth it. The restaurant setting is attractive and elegant but not luxurious. In other words, everyone's welcome!

    The valet parking was a real treat. So many times yyou'd like to go to a place but cant because of no where to park. The waiter Tommy was top notch!! Went back twice in one week just to get the apple smoked ribs!! The cosmos are the best! Have a moonshine after dinner drink called "cat daddy". It was divine! Will go back here again and again Beautiful atmospjere!!

    Unfortunately, we were disappointed with our experience. Service was very spotty (although our server apologized for the delay and credited it to "everyone arrived at once"). His apology was well received, but we were then re-disappointed with the quality of food and wine. My salmon was spongy and was served with pre-formed white rice and four green beans (it looked like hospital food). Finally, my wine was fairly disappointing. Part of that, I guess, is my selection - but it was one of five red wines available by the glass.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/16/2013
    Walked in at 7:45 on Saturday night. There were four tables and one bar stool occupied. Got a bit concerned at that. The place is set up nice. Dim lighting, spacious, decent house music playing. The TVs with ESPN on were a bit out of place. Sat in the booth for nearly 10min before getting water. I believe there were 3 servers, so I'm not sure why it took so long. Server Tom was very nice. The menu was appealing. Didn't seem too elaborate or trying extra hard to be upscale. Ordered the tomato soup, wedge salad, prosciutto wrapped asparagus and lamb chops. I didn't get a drink, just a beer. The soup was good not great. Didn't have the tomato kick a solid tomato bisque should have. Tomatoes definitely didn't taste "roasted." The wedge wa

    The food was fabulous! At first, we were skeptical at the portion sizes, but realized afterward that most restaurants give you way too much food. The portions were perfect! Wine on tap was excellent (I had the cab) and the drink/beer/wine menu had an abundant selection - something for everyone! Our only (small) complaint would be the dessert - it was delicious, but the serving vessel was awkward and hard to manage. Otherwise, everything was wonderful.

    It's in a convenient location and the food is okay. The folks who got the grilled cheese and pear sandwich (it was lunchtime) were happy. Our salads were average and the empanadas were far too crusty with average filling. We arrived at 12 and clearly they weren't quite ready -- staff was coming in after we sat. So service at first was slow. But once every one was there to work, it improved. So, I'd say for lunch to go at 12:15 and probably stick to their sandwiches.

    This place will not make it, at least not under the current management. We reserved a table for two, so were not walk-ins. The hostess put us in the bar section (marble top tables without linen tablecloths) and had us in the entrance area, facing the door. We asked for one of the three banquette table but she said they were all reserved. The entire evening, however, not a single one of those tables had any patrons. Why lie outright, when we are there to witness...?!

    Did not have a good experience begining with the RUDE hostess who took my reservations... the manager made up for her behavior eventually (thank you) the food was decent (nothing exciting... dessert better than dinner) and the venue was nice...quiet, good bar area. Lots of access to parking (which is always a plus!) either across the street or valet ($7-$8)

    Very disappointed that they ran out Tomato soup, Coppola Votre Sante Pinot Noir Bottled Wine, and Cheesecake. It was 8 pm and the restaurant wasn't really crowded. Also extremely disappointed they no longer make the Capresi Flatbread Gluten-Free since that was pretty much the reason we went to Chaplos. We like that it is really close to where we live and we prefer to support neighborhood business, but probably out last meal here...

    It was a nice experience. If you go for lunch, you should make sure you have time. Lunch is not in and out in a timely manner. However this could be because they are new and need time to get up to speed. Service was great and staff very friendly. I really liked the decor and I had the chicken sandwich with chipotle mayo which was very tasty. Chef should always be sure to communicate any changes to the menu with wait staff. Ordered appetizer based upon what we were told, however there had been a change she was not aware of. Was given a free desert to make up. Overall a nice experience.
