    Food was top notch. We had the 4 course meal....all portions were what seemed to be a regular portion. Dishes were expertly prepared and presented and most importantly, tasted delish! Service was excellent as well. Meals were served quickly, but yet we were not rushed. Second time there and it was even better than the first.

    Has been our favorite and remains in top spot. Their 4 course tasting menu is hands down the best value at a white cloth dining institution that I'm aware of. I always do that, and my wife does a salad and entre and we take leftovers home with us. We started with a cheese plate and this is just outstanding. Simply the best I've had anywhere. Then we did the watermelon salad and the heirloom tomato salad, both were excellent but the watermelon was tops. Then came the mushroom risotto which is always fabulous. Then we did the pork cheek empanadas and an off menu item, sweetbreads. The empanadas good, but we wouldn't do them again. The sweetbreads were amazing!!! ... And then for the surprise, it was no corkage Tuesday, awesome!!

    I was disappointed with our recent experience at table 39. The server was condescending. When we asked about an appetizer we didn't get, she said we hadn't ordered it. We were there for an hour and a half before we got our entrees. It was 30 minutes after we ordered that they let us know they were out of one of the entrees we ordered. When the food arrives it wasn't worth the wait. I could hardly identify the gnocchi in my bowl and it needed seasoning. My husbands lamb dish was super salty. All in all I felt robbed.

    We had 2 couples join us for dinner on Sat. evening at 6:45. We found the food quality was very good but the service was extremely slow. It took over a hour from the time we ordered to receive our meal which was a real disappointment. Cocktail and wine refills also were real slow. Restaurant was full which added to the noise level also.

    The restaurant was tooooo noisey! We had an inside table and had a very difficult time visiting/hearing each other because of the noise level. I underestand carpet is more difficult to keep nice, however, it would go along way to abate the noise. While the food was acceptable, we will not return because of the noise level.

    Had a great lunch at Room 39 Mission Farms. I was dining with the CFO of a large organization. She is a very smart sophisticated individual. We agreed on Room 39 and I felt guilty. This is the place my wife and I have lunch on her birthday, our anniversary and Valentines Day. I was sharing this intimate gathering place with a corporate associate. It was fine, she enjoyed a great meal in a great environment. I was perfect for that individual as it continues to be for my wife and I.

    It was our first visit and we were looking for a nice place to eat breakfast that had great food and a casual atmosphere. To our surprise, Room 39 met both criteria. I had the BELT and my wife had the quiche. Although the bottom crust of the quiche was quite hard and she was unable to eat it, the flavors were great. We both enjoyed the coffee which is apparently a special blend for Room 39. The food portions were just right as was the service. We will go back and we plan to try their lunch and dinner menu as well.

    Dinner was outstanding, as usual. However, it was incredibly hot in the restaurant. We were told that their a/c could not keep up with the high outside temp, but clearly their a/c was not working properly. It was 85-87 degrees inside the restaurant according to the thermostat on the wall. Unfortunately, we my parents were visiting from out of state and we wanted to treat them to a nice dinner out. The meal was very good - but the temperature in the restaurant really affected our experience.

    We love Room 39 for brunch on the weekend! The staff is always very friendly and welcoming and we've been regulars for years. We so want to also support the restaurant at dinner, but we just don't care for the menu. Most of the dishes have bacon, even the starters and pastas - the menu is limited and some of the dishes are just not well-executed. I had the skate wing on Wednesday evening and only ate a third of it because I didn't care for the way it was prepared, and I usually love skate wing. The grilled romaine salad was very good and they have a nice wine selection. We will continue to enjoy brunch at Room 39 and will hope that they change the dinner menu a bit because we feel at home there and think so highly of the staff.

    We decided to try this place after my wife had a pleasant Brunch here with a friend. We shared a salad and appetizer, the tempura battered boneless wings were the perfect combination of light and crispy. We then split (4) 1/2 size pasta dishes and did our own little pasta tasting menu. We had more food than we could eat, and had a lovely time tasting each, we both had our favorites, the risotto was mine. Dessert we had the goat cheese donut in caramel bath, which really was the best part of a great dinner.

    First time at Room 39 my fiance and I had a great time. We both were very pleased with our food. Second time, food was bland. My only thought it we had a back up chef, I had the filet and my fiance had the pork chop. Both were bland and had a side of potatoes that was just lazy for a restaurant of this quality. The salmon starter we had was dressed poorly and uneven, the risotto was below standards, the chicken tempura was way too much soy sauce. For as expensive as a restaurant this is, I won't be returning in a long time. Rye is right down the street and much better.

    We took my kids there on Father’s Day and everyone had a fabulous meal! The item they wanted to order, chicken and waffles, wasn’t on the menu but the waitress got them chicken and pancakes and they were just fine with that. The eggs were so creamy-I didn’t realize scrambled eggs could tast so good! My husband had the steak/muffin/egg dish(I can’t think of the name) and he couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was. Also the service was outstanding! We had such an enjoyable meal and can’t wait to go back again. We’ve been for dinner before but didn’t realize what we were missing with breakfast.

    Room - 39 has amazing food, charm and personalization! I made my reservation on OpenTable and mentioned wanting an outdoor table and that we were celebrating our anniversary. Someone actually read my notes! The hostess greeted us with champagne, gave us a very private outdoor table and made our evening extremely special! The four course meal was exceptional and the waitress was the perfect balance between attentive to refilling our wine glasses, knowledgeably describing menu items and being respectfully aloof! It was a perfect evening and I cannot wait to return again for a special occasion!
