Food was amazing like always. Noise was louder than normal but still great atmosphere. Made reservations hours in advance. Host put us at a table in the corner next to a table that had too many chairs so I had to ask the woman to move her seat to get into my seat. The woman was a horrible human being and made a big deal about it. But truthfully that shouldn’t have been my job to ask her to move. If Big City was going to allow 5 people at 4 person table they should have asked the woman to move.

We arrived a few minutes late for our reservation but were seated right away. The waitress was attentive but did seem a little rushed. A party of about 15 people came in and this made the noise level very loud. The food came in a timely manner and was good. I would recommend one of the pizzas. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

Enjoyed the frozen rose cocktail, short ribs and appetizers. The kitchen has a couple options for kids if you ask, but there’s no kids menu. We ate on the patio and enjoyed people watching. No complaints. Highly recommended.

Big City has delicious food and good service. The skirt steak is tasty and tender. The fish special was a crispy snapper and vegetables. Wonderful and fresh.

The food was really good but the service was extremely poor. There were 5 of us that went in with a bachelorette and that didn't even prompt good service. The bride's Bellini was essentially just champagne but otherwise the food was very good. The service really tainted the entire experience though. Our server didn't bring drinks when we asked, never came to check on us and we constantly had to flag him down, even to get our check.

We had another great experience at Big City. I had the Pork Chop which was unbelievable. My wife had the short rib which she just loved. Unfortunately we had no room for desert.

We had a 12:30 reservation and arrived a few minutes early. The table was ready for us however clearly the server was not as it took at least 10 minutes for her to come to the table, introduce herself and take our drink orders. It then took another 10-15 minutes for us to get our drinks (which were the unlimited Bloody Marys and Mimosas - premade in pitchers). We finally got our drinks, ordered food and then waited and waited for the food to arrive. Once the food arrived, we did not see our server again unless we got up from our booth to go find her. We told her that 2 people in our party were celebrating birthdays and again, it took forever for her to bring out 2 stale pieces of chocolate cake and then charged us $15 for birthday desserts! Not such a great experience and most likely will not return.

My particular dinner(salmon,mashed potatoes instead of rice and asparagus) was very good. Our waitress was sweet and attentive A+. The menu is weak, you need to update the main course options. The restaurant is pretty. We sat at the high tables this time, nice as the front low tables

The atmosphere was lively and the seating for our group of 6 was ample. I got a filet with white rice, which was delicious. The server was a little aggressive pushing some of the fare, but overall we had a great time.

Very good dinner with my family.
Good food, kick service, attentive waiter.
Good for any occasion, they owed your reservation before walk-ins.
You wouldn’t be disappointed.
