I had the opportunity of dining here with a couple of my friends and their 2 year old— it was a marvelous experience:
Everything from the hostess greeting you warmly—wait staff being friendly, efficient and genuinely attentive—To the food being delicious and good portion sizes for the cost—I personally got the chicken parm (enough for two meals) It was slightly pricy but overall for the quality of food I would say it is absolutely worth it—it’s quaint, not overcrowded. O.P. Is located in a nice spot where there is easy nearby parking in & close By (unlike many downtown options where you often cannot find parking conveniently). I had a wonderful experience, it was quiet but still allowed for great conversation to blossom, it was comfortable and I entered & left the evening pleased with my selection—absolutely will be back again! ♥️

Went here for New Years absolutely awful best thing I had all night was the gelato... spent 75 dollars on this meal. I ordered Lasgna first time it came out it was cold. You could tell it was pre-prepared and either put in the fridge or freezer. It’s also soup I wouldn’t call it lasagna because it had maybe 3 pieces of pasta in it maybe, it was hard to tell since I could barely see my food with how dark it was. The second time they brought it out it was warm (barely) but it too was soupy. It was like I ordered meat sauce and cheese to be put in a bowl frozen together then heated. Would have preferred them to use a microwave to heat it because it might have actually gotten warm. On top of all this I spent 2 hours at the restaurant because for every task the waiter had he took 20 min to do it. Just awful and on top of that I didn’t even get a discount on my 20 dollar lasgna soup. If you want to get pasta I would recommend Olive Garden, and fazolis over this place that’s how bad it is. I’m not saying the other two are bad but when you go to a restaurant that charges 20 bucks for an entre you expect to it to not taste like a can of chef boyardee.

We made reservations for lunch and were disappointed to learn upon our arrival that only breakfast is served on Sunday. The hostess was less than friendly not only to our table, but to all she came in contact with. The waitress was friendly and good. While we were disappointed only to have breakfast available, the quality of the food was very good.

Such a disappointment. Average food, poor service, low value, would not recommend when so many choices.

Made 615p reservation, OpenTable advises free self park or $7 valet. This is not true! There is no valet for other than overnight guest, and free parking is a joke. When we left stopped at Host Stand and were given two vouchers but advised only good for an hour and a half (2 of us drove). Didn't imagine the 0-4 hour rate was an additional $23 each after believing our $300+ dinner was accompanied by free parking. So up your tab by 15% due to exceedingly slow and inattentive service that will result in a 3+ hour dinner. Checked in first, second party came later and the check in told her they didn't know where we were sitting but she could look around. Really? They had just seated us with reservations.

Server showed up with three of us, we ordered a bottle of wine, a glass of wine, and brushetta. The brushetta came later, was decent, but lots of topping would have been great if he had shown up with break he promised in a timely manner. We didn't get bread until we were well into the entrees.

Other parties arrived and we ordered more wine. Server (Wayne) consistently disappeared for long periods. Getting additional drinks, etc., was challenging at best. Maybe he was overworked or something? No explanation or apology when we had to remind him of things he forgot.

Entrees included 2 Spaghetti, 2 Tortellini, and a salmon, They were okay, however, nothing outstanding. Maybe equal to a Bravo or Mac Grill level. Certainly not what one would expect from such an acclaimed restaurant. Ordered desserts, they were okay.

All in all a disappointment. $317 tab, tipped 20% but not sure why. Because I feel like servers should be, and paid the extra $56 (the other party couldn't get what amounted to a $10 voucher for parking to work) for parking.

Have stayed at the JW for a night before. It is a nice property. Don't recommend anything other than the bar for a drink.

My clam pasta was a bit bland and little amount of clams. My guests thought the gnocchi was tasty. We ordered pizza for appetizer but it came out the same time as our dinner. I'd go back to try other foods and then make a decision later if I'd recommend to others. The ambience is hip and trendy.

Very nice restaurant, but our biggest issues were: Our appetizer was over cooked, so pretty chewy. We had to wait almost an hour to get our food. Once our food arrived, it was good but not something I would rave about. Maybe we just caught them on a bad night.

Tight sitting quarters. Our little table of 2 was about 2 feet away from the next table, which made it quite awkward when the waiter was tending to them, and his rear was practically in our face (not his fault). Noisy, and scurried atmosphere. As for the food, the tomato sauce had a bitter taste, with a strange aftertaste. Perhaps that is authentic Italian, but we did not enjoy it. Good wine, and very good, friendly service. Too bad the food couldn't match the service.

 (Richmond)·Dined on October 21, 2017

Apparently no quiet tables exist at this modern Italian spot. We wanted a place to gather after a family memorial service, 3 generations, 2 vegetarians, 4 foodies, 6 people just wanting to eat together and process the day. I'm sorry I picked this place, because it wasn't the right spot, but who knew-none of us live in Indiana.
I requested a quiet table on the Open Table reservation. I repeated this request when the restaurant called me the same day to confirm the reservation, which was at 6:30, I thought early enough not to be in the midst of peak dining time. We were seated at a round table in the absolute middle of the restaurant, which was already buzzing with conversations. The hostess was clueless when I pointed out that this was not by any means a quiet table. They finally reseated us at a banquette, which was tolerable, but the fact that this request was completely disregarded was upsetting, to say the least.
The food was fine, not terrific, not terrible. The best entree turned out the be the eggplant, which I ordered, and was NOT your father's eggplant parm, but rather thinly sliced eggplant encasing ricotta and greens. It was well prepared and flavorful, very nice. The others at the table said their entrees (pasta and clams, and another with tortelloni) were rather bland, not memorable.
This is not a place for conversation or romance. It's more about making a splash, which just isn't all that impressive any more.

The food was very good however the waiter and staff continued to try to take our plates. If we set our fork down for one moment someone would try to grab your plate to clear. We obviously had plenty of food on our plates and were not finished. After 7 or 8 times it became extremely annoying. Otherwise I enjoy food.
