Waitress was great. Attentive and funny. Loved her. The restaurant is loud, buy it was St. Patrick’s Day so ..... Food was mixed. Pot pie tasted good but lacked sufficient chicken. All in all, a fun place that is loud with just OK food

Tables by bar are too noisy, with reservations, I would have expected a seat in the back dining room where you can hear your party talk

We made a reservation for us and another couple. The wait staff was great, very attentive and got the orders right. Drink specials/beer selections are varied and tasty. Two of us ordered steak. It was prepared as requested and delicious. Two of us ordered sandwiches/wraps - also very good. We've been before and will go back again...a nice find amongst all the choices Babylon has to offer.

We've tried to get into H&S's many times - but it's so popular the wait time usually exceeds 1 hour at rush. So this time we booked a table via OpenTable and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and lived up to our expectations!

The food was fabulous and the ambiance was great. Waiter just should of checked in more often to make sure we had what we needed at table. It was hard to get his attention Ex: Delivered coffee and then we waited to get milk/cream so coffee got cold.

Great food. Different Menu items than seen. Wild Mushroom meatloaf excellent...Bad side. I ordered single malt scotch neat. They charged me for the drink that a $2.00 up charge for it being neat????My friend got a Grey Goose on the rocks. Charged him for the drink than a $2.00 up charge for ice. Just charge more for the drinks instead of creating a marketing nightmare.

Menu looked great so we gave it a try. We were sitting right by the front door so our server barely came by. Appetizers were great and thats about it. Entrees were boring dry some even inedible. Ordered second round of drinks when dinner came and never got them. Really wanted to love the place.

We went on a Saturday night with a reservation and had no trouble getting a table. The waitress was friendly and attentive and food was excellent and reasonably priced. Our only issue was the seat back between our table and the one behind us. Their child kept pushing back on it and it pushed into us. The father then turned to us and complained that we were pushing it. So maybe if the seat back was more securely installed, it would not have been a problem. All in all though, the food and service were great and we'll be back.
