My guest and I chose Passage to India because of its beautiful and tranquil decor. We expected to food to be very good, but agreed that this was the best restaurant meal we have had together in months. I seldom order scallops, but my friend had me share her's. They were outstanding in both texture and flavor. The side dishes we had were very good, especially the lentils. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The bottle of sauvignon blanc we shared was a good choice at a very reasonable price.l More

We had an 8pm reservation, we were seated promptly; however, we sat for 10 minutes before anyone approached our table. The restaurant was not busy, there were only 3 tables being served. A young lady approached our table, she apologized for the wait and served us some water, took our drink order and informed us that our first round of drinks was on the house due to the long wait. Another 10 or so minutes had gone by, when another server approached our table and apologized stating that she was training and there was some confusion with the table assignments. She then took our appetizer and entrée order and stated that she would course it out for us. Several minutes later our drinks finally arrived, a glass of wine and a dirty martini. As the night went on, our salads arrived, the Heirloom tomato & Burrata and the Iceberg salad were both excellent and very filling. For our entrees we ordered the NY Strip and Filet Mignon, both were perfectly cooked, had a beautiful crust & were flavorful. We also shared the roasted mushrooms and fully loaded baked potato. Overall, the food was fantastic, the service was very slow, long wait periods each time a drink was ordered and for the food to arrive. The more experienced server was lovely, very apologetic; however, for the price and beautiful ambiance of the restaurant, we were hoping for more attentive service, especially given the restaurant was not busy. We would recommend to others and we will be back, I think this experience was a one off, considering the rave reviews it has received from other patrons. More
