Food and table service was good.

Restaurant had more of a bar vibe with a DJ spinning those old, annoying cruise-ship type of party songs.

Found the front door guys rude—immediately asking for a $10 cover per person rather than first asking if we were there for a dinner RSVP.

The food at Painters' is very good, but much else is lacking. The service is affected by a poor ratio to server to guest, although there are many bussing tables and seemingly hanging out. To say this restaurant's noise level is "energetic" is a huge insult to energy. The noise level is intentionally loud due to the lack of any soundproofing components anywhere, and so everything is actually amplified. It's a fun place to go if you enjoy shouting shouting across the table.

Great food in a lively atmosphere. Main dining room is a little stark (and therefore loud) so we ate in the back room. Perfect for our pre-theatre dinner.

I had paella and there was so much seafood I could hardly see the rice! The shrimp were huge and it was so delicious. Our server Jon was outstanding.

Eh on their website it says that brunch is till 4 so we decided to come here for a late brunch. Unfortunately it is only till 3 so they wouldn’t honor it. The waiter was gone for most of the time and I had to get out of the table to chase him down. Skirt steak was good but the salads are horrible. All lettuce and dressing. The toppings were barely there. My mom got a salad with goat cheese, mango avocado and pecans and you couldn’t even see any of the toppings. Same with feta cheese salad.

Terrific place before a show at Gateway! Didn’t get to hear live music afterward but will make the trip soon! Salads and burgers were delicious! Loved drawing with crayons on tablecloth with my girl!

This is an amazing place with very original food. It's very large but still is tough to get a table sometimes. It is very popular for a very good reason.

This was not my first time at Painters but it was my worst experience there. The hostess was very unfriendly and admonished us for being 4 minutes late for our reservation. This was after we spent an additional 4 minutes waiting for her to get off the phone. Our waiter checked up on us a little but there was awhile where all of our glasses were empty, including our water glasses and pitcher. He eventually came back after my table mate flagged him down, he brought us more drinks but didn’t bring the water I asked for. However the bus girl was extremely hardworking and we asked her for the water, which she brought over immediately. The food was ok, my strip steak was cooked to the right temperature but was not seasoned at all. The potatoes au gratin that accompanied it was very tasty though. Two of my table mates enjoyed their meals and the other one found their burger to be just ok. Our desserts, brownie bomber and build your own ice cream sandwich, were excellent! If it wasn’t for the poor reception/greeting and service I would return to give other menu items a try.

was a party of 4 and was seated at 6 pm, food was not served until 7:20 the staff is over whelmed very noisy even the kitchen staff was screaming at the servers, not very professional we all ordered the NY strip steak and was served a small piece make no mistake about it, THIS A PUB for very young crowd, not a place for adults who want to go out with friends and family also asked to speak to a manager because of the delay in bringing us our food, manager not to be found never came to our table ,

Made a reservation for 6pm before going to a show at the Gateway. Got there 10 minutes before the reservation. Got the drinks and appetizer in a timely manner. The people next us arrived at about the same time , ate and left. At 7:20 we still hadn’t received our meal. We had to request the bill , pay and leave. Will never go back.

Would of given it a five star review but we got basically kicked out of our table I guess we were taking too long celebrating a coworker’s retirement and they needed the table for someone else otherwise OK

Made a reservation and when I got there gave my name but the hostess forgot about seating us. Waited over an hour to which I kept having to ask when my table would be ready only to have to go through the whole process with the same hostess letting her know I had a reservation. People came in after us that didn’t have a reservation & was seated.

Eat there pretty often, great menu, nice twists on normal menu items, wait staff is exceptional and tasty drinks that come quick. What more could a couple ask for on a Friday night? Noise level can be a bit high, so it your looking for your quiet dinner this won't be the place, however if you feel like being part of the buzz this will suit you well.
