The food, atmosphere and service were all excellent! The bartender made us some incredible cocktails while we waited for our friends. We asked for drinks that were not on their menu (the last word for me, sidecar for my husband) and they were exceptional! We will definitely be back!!

Great twists and additions to Italian classics. Cod arancini are a must try, and the pasta is so tender! We'll be returning!

Incredible food, wine, and service. The black spaghetti was particularly phenomenal, but there wasn't a single thing we ordered that we didn't love.

We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and hoped to enjoy a great meal . We were constantly asked if we wanted our meals “boxed up” despite not being there very long. We were never asked if we’d like more drinks, though which was odd. The service staff were all friendly but appear to be untrained. Also the noise level is ridiculously high, and other than saying “happy birthday” to our daughter when we sat down - nothing else was done to a Kathi’s special occasion. This really smarted as we had indicated what we were out celebrating when we made the reservation AND the man sitting right next to our daughter got a piece of birthday cake and a candle after his meal. What?!

The food is always exceptional. Atmosphere is nice but extremely loud to the point I couldn't hear what my wife was saying to me, and it was her birthday dinner celebration. We felt a little rushed but overall, we keep co.ing back.

Great evening! The food was spectacular and our waiter was phenomenal. My date was recovering from the flu and didn’t want anything cold and our waiter changed our water to not having ice in it and stayed on top of it the whole evening.

Loved everything and will definitely come back again!

ASK FOR KATIE We LOVED our experience so much that we have told just about every person we come in contact with about it. 246, just like every other Ford Fry restaurant, is amazing. The food was exceptional but the one thing that stood out the most was our waitress, Katie. Katie was unreal. From the second she greeted our table we knew we were in for a treat. One thing I love and appreciate is when servers are honest and Katie was that. She let us know her tops on the menu and was honest about items when we asked her questions. We LOVED our experience because of her! We will be back soon!

Very loud. Conversation difficult with anyone not right next to you. Brick walls and wooden floors. Sound-absorbing material on walls might help.

I had selected our special occasion as a Birthday when I made the reservation hoping that my husband’s birthday would recognized.
No such luck and didn’t even get asked if we wanted dessert. And we frequent the restaurant regularly.
Shouldn’t be offered as a selection if not relayed to restaurants.
