    We stopped at Fitzgerald’s for drinks as we were celebrating my birthday. The atmosphere was very nice. I will say the place was empty so it was quiet. It wasn’t late but since they were slow they were closing early. That being said, they honored our reservation, served a delicious cocktail, and brought me a special birthday dessert treat without being asked. It was really nice. I’ll go back again for the service alone.

    Ambiance, service was good. The food was underwhelming. The tartar was the best food we had. Cocktails were 10/10 but the food wasn't good as cocktails. I would recommend the bar sitting with cocktail not for dining.

    The ambience and service are great. The cocktails are very good, but pretty skimpy. The food is beautifully presented, but a bit too fussy and a bit too salty.

    This is a beautiful restaurant. If ambience were all I cared about, I’d give it top rating. But I also go to restaurants for food and service. Both were disappointing. The burger ($24) was the most mediocre thing I’ve eaten at a restaurant of this supposed pedigree. The waitress didn’t pause even for a second before saying “we don’t have that” to any requests I had. What restaurant serving burgers doesn’t have blue cheese in the kitchen?

    Inside is dark and cozy. Nice spot to come for a drink and quiet conversation - it probably has a good crowd on weekends. The service was on the slow side. Took at least 10-15 min. for our drinks to arrive and it wasn’t at all crowded. Bartenders made wonderful drinks! I had rockfish which was pretty small and tasted slightly fishy for $38. The ravioli was delicious but a joke as far as how many ravioli was in dish. Waitresses were pleasant but certainly not hurrying themselves. All in all we decided good to come for drinks on a winters night but pass on dinner.

    I was getting a break of a CEO job for 4 days. It was amazing to focus on the food and good service, they see me alone taking pictures because my hobby is getting out to special restaurants like this around the world and take pictures. The bartenders and staff amazing they give me a free coctail that they inventend there. 100% points.

    Great drinks - we tried the Strawberry Pisco Sour and it was delicious. Crab gazpacho, ravioli, sea bass and chicken pot pie fritters were excellent. And some lovely desserts! We loved the soundtrack playing and the comfortable banquettes. Great people watching, too.

    Wait staff was excellent but I needed binoculars to find $35 tenderloin which was the size of golf ball. The real unfortunate part of the dinner was at 10:15, I escorted my date outside to wait 3 minutes to catch her Uber and when I turned around to go back in, they locked the doors and wouldn’t let me back in. A guy who looked like Terry from Ray Donovan said “we aren’t letting new people back in”. Ugh

    Still recovering from an acute stomach infection from dinner. Both server and menu intentionally hid the $2 surcharge for truffle fries. Shady, as is the interior, which looks kinda nice.
