Waiter was attentive. Food was inconsistent. We started with champagne, a crab cake and mushroom tacos. The men enjoyed the tacos, but the crab cake lacked flavor, was slightly dry even though it was full of crab. The sauce under the crab cake was cold and bland. My husbands filet was perfect. My son had the crispy redfish and really enjoyed It. My salmon was served raw. My side dish was cold. I did Send the salmon back. It retuned medium rare. It was a special occasion and I did not want to send it back again, so I ate the edges. If I find myself back at Penn State for a special occasion I don’t think I would return to Zola, even though overall it was positive. More

Gigi's is our hands down favorite place in State College. The food is fantastic, the prices appropriate, and the service is superb. If you want a more lively environment, you can dine in the bar ... which has a great atmosphere. Or if you want a more quiet experience, you can choose the dining room. We've done both and each has been great. Can't say enough good things about them. More

I hate to say how often over many years we have driven past Kelly's. On this occasion we were at Kelly's for New Years Eve dinner. First of all the restaurant was fully booked but service was absolutely perfect. We never felt rushed and enjoyed every course at out chosen pace. The restaurant appears to have (at least that night) three type of personnel in the dining area so food is brought out promptly and tables are cleared promptly in preparation for the next course. Wine markups seem reasonable as well. The food was very good. I had a "pork ribeye", said to be very tender and it was probably the most tender piece of port I've ever enjoyed. The downside is it was a special so I may not be able to get it again! My wife had "crispy duck". It was a nicely prepared dish and much better than the Asian style she is used to. Kelly's will be a regular stop in our travels (about four times a year) to State College! More

Olde New York remains Olde New York. Very consistently good food at a reasonable price. Certainly not high end gourmet fare. Always a great choice after a movie and usually able to walk in and get a table without a reso; except of course on graduation, parents weekend or home football games. Support our locally owned restaurants. More
