This is my favorite restaurant in the theater district. The food and service are consistently excellent. It is an attractive restaurant which is not noisy. The manager went out of his way to call me when I left a scarf and to mail it back to me.

The restaurant was good overall. Clean, service good, attentive. Shredded carrots as the veg on a plate with Filet Mignon, not so good. For $40+ for a steak with mashed potatoes, I think they could have done a bit better with veg options. My only complaint, so not so bad.

I absolutely love your food. The service this time was fair. We were 11 having brunch. It took a very long time to be served. The coffee was luke warm. But I still will return when we come from Philadelphia to see a show. This was the 4 th time we have come to your restaurant. Beth Stolinsky

A great "theater district" spot that we visited on a Monday, so the usual theater "throng" wasn't there. That meant a quiet, wonderful dinner. The food was excellent!

My husband and I had the paella which we thoroughly enjoyed. There was a lot of seafood. Our friends had the lamb bolognese and enjoyed that as well. We were upstairs in the corner so it was quiet and private. They didn't rush us which we appreciated.

Food was very good. One of the nicest happenings was that Manager arranged us to be seated at a more comfortable table. We were on the mezzanine near the stairway, he graciously moved us to a table further to the rear of the restaurant. there was a lot of movement around us, Lovely! We arrived for a 5:00 PM dinner, it was quiet enough then but as it got later more patrons arrived it appeared to be a little noisier, but not unbearable for one of our party to hear easily with out too much interference from background noise. Would give this restaurant applauds. Food was delicious and service was friendly and great.

I always enjoy coming to this restaurant. I do have one comment to make that, this time when I came, and the last time that I came, it was extremely cold in there. I do not know how well the air conditioning is regulated. Both times we asked to have our tables moved. I totally enjoy dining here.

My wife, I, and another couple had booked reservations for a pre-theater lunch. Not wanting anything too heavy, I opted for an entree salad topped with rare sashimi-grade tuna, which was very good. Service a bit uneven but not bad. A good place for pre- or post-theater dining.

In for a show, met my brother and his wife who were celebrating their anniversary, given what we thought were (2) complimentary glasses of champagne, charged over $30 for this, they were none drinkers, so this was quite a surprise!
Other than that great place, don’t go on a special occasion without being prepared to pay!

We have been here many times, pre-theatre. Maybe it was an off night, under staffed and/or new staff.
It should also be noted that when we mentioned to management, they did try to make it right by buying us after dinner drinks.
We will go back because of the location - across the street from the theatre.
Hopefully next time will be better.
