The 31 Club carries on the tradition as a hot spot for who's who in the city and is one of the best places to eat, drink, and be seen.

    When arrived after making a reservation they had a sign on the door that they are closed due to lack of employees. Why have a reservation service if you are too lazy to open. My guess is you are living off the free PPP money.

    We had such high hopes for this place after seeing the reviews but was incredibly let down from start to finish! We were for seated for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us, including the empty water glasses too. Our meal didn’t consist of anything too complicated but it was very clear we were put on some “pay no attention to” list for not ordering alcoholic beverages. We were in town for the marathon and chances are you’re not going to get big drinkers the night before a race. The table next to us who ordered drinks got their appetizers pretty much immediately compared to our wait for one appetizer and a salad, let alone the dinner. We had planned to stay for dessert but since we weren’t of top priority or any priority to your staff, we decided to leave. It pained my husband to tip 20% when he is normally a 40% tipper. Guess our waitress felt it was more important to cater to drinkers. You never know why people don’t order alcoholic drinks and for us to be treated in such a manner just left a bad overall impression on the place.

    Food was good, that was not an issue at all. Long wait to get in- even with reservation. A group that was waiting as we arrived said they had been waiting for their reservation for an hour and they left before being seated. We waited nearly 45 just for apps, what we finally got a table. Some of the app orders were wrong when brought out, Then we waited quite a while for entrees as well (which as I said were good). The main issue we had was really poor service from the time we walked in.

    Husband’s steak came out cold and was brought out the wrong vegetables. His clams casinos were watery. I ordered the Cappelini with a chicken cutlet and instead I was given 2 chicken cutlets with a small side of pasta. The Caesar salad was warm and wilted. Pretty disappointed being we have been there before and never had any issues. We won’t be back anytime soon.

    I asked the server to switch my original cocktail for a mimosa, which had not been brought out to the table yet. The server then brought the original cocktail up to my table and tried telling me it was too late to switch my drink because the bartender already made it.
