The food was very, very fresh and delicious. Had a very nice, knowledgeable waitress though did not get her name. Was great atmosphere and we never felt our courses were "rushed", we will be back.

Service was very good. Meals were good. Chop salads were very good. Filet Mignon was over-cooked beyond medium, although still tasty. Disappointed the filet was over-cooked. Scallops with lobster risotto was good but there seemed to be very little lobster. The cioppino was good but I found the broth to be a bit lacking...a little too bland.

Went here really to have a cigar after dinner but was disappointed when we were told after dinner that cigar lounge was closing due to no hot water. Dinner was okay, nothing truly distinguishable...scallops were nicely done. Service was fine, decor was minimal. Located in a somewhat industrial area.

Great steaks and seafood stew. Presentation in both plates was stunning.

Great bar and service.

Be prepared to wait a bit between courses, but with food this good and good conversation and great drinks make this wait seem like nothing.

The food was fantastic but the service was completely awful. They forgot our appetizers. No one came by to refil our drinks or wine. We ordered multiple things only to find out over ten minutes later that they were out. Our server was unresponsive and had no knowledge of the menu. Good thing the entrees were all delicious because the service was awful.

Our experience at this restaurant was probably one of the finest ones we have ever had. The customer service, dinner and desserts were outstanding. Both couples were celebrating their wedding anniversaries and from the personalized menu to the personalized plate of dessert they really made us feel special .

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Our server, Bob, was great. Tuna tartare was very tasty. Caesar salad good but salad with Goat Cheese dressing was extremely overdressed. It ruined the greens and was salty to boot. Need a defter hand with dressing. Halibut entree delicious and crab cakes were good. But the absolute best were the fantastic desserts! The blueberry custard was outstanding as was the chocolate hazelnut offering. Very talented pastry chef. I would go there just for the desserts!

When we arrived there were only two other parties in the entire dining room. We were seated away from the other two along the window. Very nice until the hostess (Beth) decided to seat someone right next to us. Which I would understand if the place was crowded. What was she thinking? The other two parties that were there prior to our arrival shortly left and we were stuck sitting in this huge dining room right next to the only other people dining. Two guys whining about their love lives or lack of, which my date found offensive. Still cannot understand why she would do such a thing with so many tables open. Food was good. Music was good. Our server was excellent. I made the reservation later hoping to have a quiet
semi-private dinner

The food was great. The cheese plate was tasty and my cioppino was outstanding. I have gotten it both times that I have been there. My husband enjoyed his beef ribs. Our dessert and drinks were great as well. Our server was nice and very attentive.

The food was delicious and well prepared. The hostess' welcome was underwhelming. We were 15 minutes early for our reservation. She said go to the bar and come back in 15 minutes. Note, it was not crowded. In the bar the service was barely adequate. We each order a bottle of beer with a glass. The bartender did not pour the beer for either of us.
Returned to the hostess at our reservation time and were seated. They were slow taking our dinner order and had to ask two people to bring us bread. It arrived after our entrees.
We were there for our anniversary dinner with no recognition of this. I will not recommend this restaurant even though the food was good.

Great food, subpar service. For an establishment charging premium prices, service must match the food, and these folks were not friendly or focused on the guests.

This was a perfect spot to have a long, leisurely dinner with a good friend to catch up. The cigar smoke from the bar bothered me a tiny bit (I am super sensitive to smoke) when I entered and stoood at the hostess desk for a few minutes, but it was barely noticeable during our dinner. Food was delicious, service impeccable. We were there for 3+ hours and no one rushed us. A very peaceful, relaxing, enjoyable night out.

My husband and I have been here dozens of times and love the food. We always order the same thing. I have had rave reviews in the past but our meal this time was so disappointing. Our waiter was great, the band was excellent, but the food was blah. I so wanted each bite to prove me wrong and it was just so very bland. We will be back, hopefully it was just a fluke!

Took my boyfriend to dinner for his birthday and had a wonderful time at Cioppino! The food is excellent, the wine list is extensive and the service is great! They really go out of their way to take care of you. We even got custom printed menus with Happy Birthday written on the top with his name on them, and a free ice cream cake dessert!
Also had a chance to check out the cigar bar after dinner. It was awesome. There is a huge selection of cigars and whiskeys. In addition, there are other spirits/wine/beer options for those not too into whiskey. Overall, amazing date night spot!

The food was absolutely amazing! The service was terrible however. My friend and I were the only guests in the restaurant beside a party of about 20 in the back room. We were left unattended for long periods, served incorrect wine, never offered refills on our beverages, never provided with basic condiments such as salt/pepper etc.
