Good food. Too noisy. Not a place for children. Good for clubbing. Not romantic and family friendly at night. Obserd for price. Good location. 2.5 rating. Food carry out. Only good If you wanna party. Value you more if you got more people in your party.

Just a WONDERFUL place to go and eat!
The food was AMAZING - I had the filet mignon and it was honestly the beat I’ve had in a LONG time.
The atmosphere was just delightful and ecstatically well done!
Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

My girlfriends and I wanted the perfect spot to spend lunch together on a patio. 220 was just that place! Danielle was our server & she was beyond amazing. 220 now has what’s called a “champagne punch bowl” We tried the Fuzzy Bubbles Punch Bowl and it was the most refreshing drink all of us girls have ever had! We can not wait to go back.

Food was terrible...the ahi tuna was fishy so they refunded. The waiter said oh I refunded you because 2 other tables said it was fishy too!!!! Service was terrible...so slow. Salmon on salad was measly, thin and crunchy. Don’t know why I keep trying this place. I think it’s because I loved the old 220 so much. I realise the new one is totally different and I don’t mind that...but the food has to at least be edible and delivered to the table in a decent amount of time!!

In total, 220 is still the place to go. The hostess had absolutely no clue where to seat us. She kept trying to put us at tables right next to others when the dining room wasn't that crowded. However, David our star waiter saved the day. He made sure we were comfortable and was attentive. The ahi tuna appetizer was one of the best I've ever had. While the off-menu ribeye also shined.

Nice place with very good food. Initial service a bit slow but better once order taken. Sat outside in bright sun, not the best. Some more shade would be a good idea. Inside full and loud on a Friday night. Good location.

We had a delicious meal with wonderful service! The drinks were on point and we loved the ambiance. We will definitely be back... our only complaint is that they told OpenTable that we did not honor our reservation and that we no-showed which was not the case, and I then had to write an explanation to OpenTable explaining that we had attended our reservation. Not sure how that happened but if I had missed the email, I know it can affect your ability to use OpenTable, so hopefully they can pay more attention to who shows up!

Something changed at 220. It’s not the same place. We had to turn 2 dinner back and we never do that. I know people say that but we literally could not eat our food. What’s going on? Are you now just a club later at night? What happened to the 220 we loved for many years. We will not come back.

We came here for a romantic dinner date and we aren’t the oldest couple. We were concerned about being treated like kids, but our waiter Wayne made our dinner amazing. He treated us just like everyone else and on top of that being amazing, the food was INCREDIBLE. absolutely blown away and will be back!
