My friends and I ate dinner here before the show. Friendly staff, fast service and great atmosphere. I plan to dine again soon and recommend to friends who are in the area for a show.

My friend attended the Allman/Betts concert and are here before the concert. As we had never been to The Arcadia, had no idea the restaurant was there. Nice find and we shall be back.

I have been to the Arcada Club several times but this was my first Sunday evening for Ron's Sinatra Italian Dinner, it was SO GOOD. There were 6 of us & everyone enjoyed their pasta dish, plenty of food. GREAT food, fantastic service & enjoyable entertainment!
Look forward to our next dinner.

Excellent food, great unique atmosphere. Rare opportunity for live music in the suburbs. Come before the show if you want to visit, small venue makes conversation difficult during the show. Overall, great, fun vibe

This is a unique restaurant that is worth the trip! The food is good, but it is the atmosphere that makes this place swing. It is like stepping back into the 20's. Feel free to dress for the time period, it only makes your experience even more enjoyable. The Sunday Sinatra singer had a great voice, took requests and made the experience personnel. Very fun afternoon. Give it a try!

Service was VERY slow, but it did not appear they were crazy busy? Food portions were very small, particularly when compared to the price.

Wee went here for a pre-show dinner. The room (and the whole building for that matter) was just beautiful. I had the filet, which was a perfect size for me, and it was prepared to the temp I requested (and like). My only complaint was that the veggies and potatoes were way overcooked; I'd guess there's just a big pot of both that are ladled onto the plate. taste wise they were fine; texture wise they were mushy. But overall a fine meal!

William Pack did a great magic and mentalist set at the club. Would have been even better if he hadn't had to tone down the banter for small children (at a speakeasy?) in the audience. Food was very nice; décor fun.

Fun place with great atmosphere. My 15 year old loved the 1920's feel and he enjoyed his food.
I had a glass of chardonnay which needed to be colder so the bartender put it in the shaker. That worked. The veggie flatbread on cauliflower crust was alright. I would still go back.

Sunday’s Italian dinner is an awesome addition to the excellent menu offering. And with the addition of live music, a great way to enjoy Sunday. Highly recommended

The menu here is quite limited. Not meant for dinner but more bar type of food. Food is just ok but you don't come here for the food. The atmosphere is amazing, the place is gorgeous and the drinks are fabulous. The venue is what you come for and the music.

Good atmosphere, good service, good food. I would recommend it as a fun evening out. We were there for dinner before a concert downstairs, so we were not there for the entertainment that evening, but I know that they had entertainment later that evening in the Club Arcada, too.

Very cool place for a before the show dinner and drinks. It's the third floor of the Arcada theater and you take a private elevator to get up there. There's an extensive drink menu and a limited food menu, but the food is excellent. The charcuterie board with Italian meats and cheeses is perfect for a snack and the mini sandwich flight with pot roast, meatball and pulled pork is great. It's decorated in a 1920's motif and the staff wears period correct outfits. Great place right upstairs from the showroom.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Arcada Club! We shared a charcuterie board, a flatbread pizza, and the flight of sandwiches. We found each dish to be delightful. Between us we tried 6 of their signature cocktails. They were all delicious in their own way, some I would gladly order again and others were tasty, but just not my style. The entertainment was also fun. All in all, I am glad we went and we hope to go back! Oh, and prices seemed really decent considering that entertainment was included!

Menu way too limited. Items very pricey for what you get, although the food was good. Better to go to the Office 1/2 block down the street.
