I realize they are new and getting their service together, but they ran out of dessert! Who does that? The service was not at all attentive and the food had nothing special to offer. The menu was uninspiring. This restaurant might survive simply because of the convenience to going immediately to the show. However, I doubt we will go back any time soon. For the price there are lots of other restaurants as good, if not much better, close by.

We have eaten here twice since it opened. This time we spoke with the manager about the new menu. There is a lot of fish on the menu and not much else. The manager said they are transitioning into a steak place. There are exactly two steak choices on the current menu. I tried the rib eye. It was exceptional. I am looking forward to more steak choices.

Portions were very small and prices were extremely high. Four of us shared 2 bottles of wine (least expensive on the menu), 1 appetizer, 1salad and 2 entrees... our bill was nearly $300. We all agreed we preferred Artista and wouldn’t go back to Diana.

this is my second time to eat at Diana American Grill.

once again I have a complaint about the rolls. sure this is trivial, but I can tell a good chef run kitchen when just as much attention is be made to the rolls as to the appetizers and entrées. the restaurant has a great location great views and great ambiance for the theater district.
however the food is still average. I ate at Morton's downtown on Monday night following Thursday night at Diana's. I had more and better food for the same price. The wine list was significantly better priced and greater selection. I did have desert and the Carrot cake was delicious.
I eat at Diana because it is convenient to my theater seats, I just hate to think that I will be relegated to salad and soup.

This restaurant was only open a week when my friend and I ate before the theater. The service was impeccable and Marcello the new Genersl Manager stopped by several times to check on us. And the place was overflowing with people.
The Balck Angus filet was divine perfectly cooked and delicious. The Caesar salad was excellent the dressing not too heavy or salty. And the cheesecake creamy and delicious. So happy this restaurant is now open and I look forward to going again soon.

Came for lunch prior to seeing Oklahoma. Food was okay, no one was bowled over. Very pricey for being just "okay". Service was very average. Server disappeared and by the time we found her, there was not time to order dessert. Yes, the location is convenient if you are seeing a show. But there are better options outside the theatre.

The food and service was very good and it was nice to be at the Hobby Center venue before the show. I thought Diana was really pricey - especially the wine. $25 for a glass of wine is way out of line with other fine restaurants. $100 total bill, including tip, for one person was excessive for the total experience.

Had a pre-theatre dinner. Could only get 5:30pm reservation for 8:00pm show But restaurant was empty even at 7:00pm when we finished. Very overpriced and service was rushed for every course.

Great convenience being in Hobby Center and having a lovely, quiet meal prior to walking into seating for theatre. Understood timing is difficult serving an entire restaurant in a two hour period to get everyone into the show. Service is excellent. First rate. Food was good. Portions a bit small. Main problem was temperature. The dishes simply were luke warm. Flavors very good. Lobster pasta and red snapper. Salad before excellent, crisp, not drowned in dressing. Bread and butter good but bread a little dry. Drinks were pricey but nice pour and tastey. Carrot cake was excellent. Again small portion but fine.
Hopefully they’ll continue to work on kinks as they are only re-opened 1 week.

I was really surprise with service and food. I was really worried about the new restaurant at the hobby center, but after last night. I'm pleased with the service from Seby, professional & knowledgeable.
food was really good, my trout was delicious and my wifey veal chop was to die for.
Marcolle the GM recognize me from the old restaurant, and we talk for about ten minutes about all the plans for the new restaurant.
if you go to Diana ask for Seby and Marcolle.

Of course the convenience of it being in the theater is great b.c you don’t feel rushed.

Joshua was our waiter and he was very attentive. We had the Ribeye steak and Lobster pasta with a Cesaer salad and all of it was very good. The only disappointment was the bread and we were charged $5 for splitting the salad.
