The person who checked us in needs more training. But everything else was very good and our table service was outstanding.

Would have loved to have lobster on the menu! The crab cake was first rate; the steak in the steak frites a bit dry.

The server had an attitude the whole time. It seemed like he did not want to serve us. He never asked if we wanted bread. When serving my friend her coffee, he dropped it off and walked away before he asked if she wanted cream or sugar. Was not a good dining experience at all.

Fun atmosphere was immediately seated.
Crab cakes were very good and so was cauliflower. Loved the Angelina Chardonnay which was reasonably priced

Server was awful..
We kept asking to order but finally 30 minutes in she put the order in
Kitchen was slow
So we didn’t eat for over an hour of being seated ...tables around us who were seated after us were finishing before we were even served!
Were with children so that put a bad dent, all of the waiting, in the day.
My food was served cold.
The manager gave me a new meal and, without us asking, didn’t charge us for my meal.
I just wish she’d been our server!

Food was really good, especially the cheese platter. It was very busy and they were very accomodating when our Uber got us there almost 15 minutes late. I would definitely go again.

Terrible service. Start to end. 3 hours for dinner and mostly waiting. Steak was flavorless though prepared fine. Just not good cut of meat or high quality. Nice ambiance but terribly noisy. Not fun loud but irritatingly noisy. Was prepared to pay a lot but for $300 for 4 people I would expect a better experience.

This is a classic bar. Okay--it's a joint to put it pejoratively. It was loud and full of obnoxious screaming patrons, yearning to be heard. It's almost impossible to carry on a normal conversation. That being said, the crab cake was good and the French fries were properly crisp.

Hair in the food. My meal was brought out 15 minutes after everyone else. Server hardly came by. They were out of the turkey club- how in the world do you run out of ingredients for a turkey club? Very poor experience. Over priced. And hair in food. Disgusting.

The wait was really long for a food which we (2 people) didn’t understand because groups of 4-5 were getting their food quicker than us when they sat down much later. The food was good but the wait for our food was unexpected especially after seeing multiple people get food before us.

I was taking my daughter out to a nice dinner the evening before I was leaving to fly home. What should have been a nice evening turned into a disaster. Our waiter didn’t make eye contact with us for the first 15 minutes. When I waved at him he came over and said, “yeah, I’m your sever but I’m checking on all my other tables then I’ll be back.” I said “ok but could you please send over some water and bread.” He eventually came to take our drink order and we asked again for bread & water. We finally got water but bread didn’t come for another 10-15 minutes. Our reservation was at 8:15 and at 9:35 we hadn’t gotten any food. Finally at 9:45 I canceled my meal and we took my daughters to go. Bottom line...neither of us ate. Very disappointing.

I would recommend the hostess check in be reviewed. I was waiting for the hostess meanwhile people walked in and got seated. Then another patron claimed she was my party of 4 and was seated at the table meant for us! Almost didn't stay for dinner I was so mad. A 6:30 reservation on a Wednesday night.

Service was very weak. Place was not very busy at 6pm on a Monday night. Appetizers came at the same time as our food. Calamari was uber fried and tasteless. Scallops were cold as were other items on plate, steak ordered med-well was rare and item orders sans tomato (due to allergy) had tomato. Never got to order wine with dinner as food was so rushed. We skipped dessert and went to Baked and Wired for cupcakes - best part of the meal!

We had an early brunch with 7 in our party. The service was very good: friendly, efficient and flexible. Most of our party was very happy with the food. I shared a crab cake Benedict and a grilled salmon salad and was very happy with my choice. A fellow diner with a simple salad was disappointed. The Bloody Marys were good, as was the coffee.
Our chief complaint was that, in being seated by the kitchen, there was an inordinate amount of noise coming from behind us that was nearly continuous. Our server explained that they were scrubbing pots, but our complaint did not result in a reduction in the noise. This affected our otherwise positive experience.

Waiter was pleasant and attentive. However, when the server brought the food, our appetizer plates had not been cleared. He pushed our food into the dirty dishes. They were only moved when my husband said, "Could you please remove these?"
Crab cake good but linguini and shrimp disappointing.

Excellent service by Jack. Great suggestion for the French beef au jus, and he makes an excellent Bloody Mary.

Busy time at lunch, but he handled the crowd very well, very polite and patient.
