We had a great night at Booth One, I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. The service was attentive yet didn’t bother us every two seconds. We ordered the booth one salad, ricotta tortellini, asparagus and filet. Everything was delicious and the perfect amount of food for two of us. I would love to come back with a big group or for another date night

Loved our experience. Excellent service, asked if we were celebrating anything and when I said yes the waiter promptly brought out celebratory glasses of bubbly. Excellent entrees - lobster risotto and beef Wellington were both fantastic. Though pricey I didn’t think it was too overpriced for a special occasion and for the quality. They ran out of the popular chocolate coconut cake but the lemon meringue dessert was beautiful and tasty. Beautiful ambiance as well. We would definitely return (once we get enough LEYE points!)

Very gracious despite our mixing up the reservation time & arriving late. Golden beets were delicious, duck was a bit dry. Complimentary birthday cake was a lovely touch.

Mark was one of the best servers I’ve encountered in a long time. Knew the fine points of preparation and wine list. Also very engaging and attentive, all the while training a shadow. Job well done. We’re local and will return. Pricey but expected and value was delivered. Not the Pump Room of old but times have changed.

The evening was lovely. Food was good.
There was a little discomfort surrounding dessert. I was planning the evening for 2 birthdays. I had written into our online reservation that we were celebrating 2 birthdays and I called earlier in the day and confirmed with the hostess that there would be 2 complimentary desserts served. One dessert came with 2 candles and we were charged for it. It was very uncomfortable to make an issue about it. I felt that there should have been one complimentary dessert for each person as we have had at all your other Lettuce restaurants.
