I took my mother there for her birthday dinner and she had an amazing time. We arrived a little early, but the host greeted us immediately and invited us to wait at the bar while they prepared our table. We didn't wait long at all. At our table was a very thoughtful birthday card with mom's name printed on it from the staff. The owner had called me that afternoon and asked me for my mother's name and I realized that it was for the card. It was such a lovely, personal touch and it made my mom very happy.

The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I had the best crab cake ever! Absolutely no fillers, pure crab meat. My mom's filet mignon was perfectly cooked. For dessert, my mom chose the Mango Panacotta which was exquisite and our server, Lindsay, told us it was compliments from the restaurant for her birthday. They really made it a special evening!

We went here for a Valentine's day date and the whole experience was incredible. We only had to wait 10-15 min while our table was being prepared but the bar area was really nice so the wait seemed like nothing. The food and the service was excellent. We had a wonderful time, the lamb I ordered was perfect. We will be back.

Valentine Day Dinner. Absolutely, outstanding in every respect. Requested table near the fireplace, quietus area in restaurant, got it, food was excellent, especially the lamb tenderloin and crab cakes.
Our waitress, TIA, was fabulous, took really good care of us. The lady's all got a long stem rose on arrival, which was very nice. A great dinning experience !!

Great place for a date night! We sat upstairs- we don’t mind it up there but it is pretty dark. The waitstaff was excellent, food was delicious although definitely not cheap. They do have a lot of seafood options if you are a seafood lover. Excellent creme brûlée for dessert!

We had a table booked for A Saturday night and it was a jazz night, so it was very loud and noisy. We wished we had been seated somewhere more quiet, but overall the food and drinks were great, and we had a really nice and attentive waiter. Loved the vibe of the place!

A great restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Creative cocktails, interesting appetizers, and thoughtfully prepared and presented entrees and desserts. Everything from start to finish was perfect. Our server, Lindsay, made the night even better. Can’t wait to return for another celebration!

Delightful old-style interior in an equally old urban townhouse. The customer noise was a bit much until the bar crowd dissipated about 7:30. After that, the music was classy and not too loud. The whole table remarked on the good music.

My martini was a bit too vermouth-y, but the diner who ordered a Manhattan pronounced it outstanding.

Service could not have been better. Not at all intrusive, but somehow they knew exactly when to show up. They even came around periodically to fill the water glasses -- a major plus for me.

I truly enjoyed the lamb tenderloin, which was more tender and flavorful than I had anticipated. The portion was larger than one typically gets with lamb. I am sorry that I do not remember what the other three at the table ordered, but all expressed great satisfaction with their meals.

We have always enjoyed the Belvedere and they continue to do an excellent job. My husband's 50th birthday was acknowledged in a subtle and thoughtful way. Lindsay was our server and I can't speak highly enough of her style and professionalism. Great food and (even better) service in a gorgeous restaurant.

The food, especially seafood, is outstanding. The custom drinks from the bar were excellent and our waiter, Jimmy, was as perfect blend of being attentive, friendly and helpful, but not overwhelming. It's expensive but a great place for special occasions.

Very noisy hard to talk. Food was a bit overly flavored. Too much artichoke! Over powered both my husband and I’s dishes. Nice portion sizes. Dessert - lemon tart was also a disappointment. But the service was excellent!

Our table was right by the entrance way which made conversation difficult with the constant traffic. I suggest you remove this table.
