Went to celebrate a birthday and witnessed the staff bring a dessert to another table for a birthday (mistakenly- it was not their birthday). When we informed the staff we were celebrating a birthday, they asked if we would like to view the dessert menu.

I had pizza. It was fine. The pleasant hubbub of noise as I approached the restaurant turned into loud noise as I sat down.
Probably great if you want to go as a group and shout over each other. Not so goo solo.

The loudest restaurant I've ever been in. Food was fine, seems like a good place for a large group or just a quick drink at the bar. I'd rather go to ABC Kitchen.

The noise level was so ridiculously over-the-top that my two friends and I finally decided to cut it short and get out since our heads hurt. Also, while the food is usually good, I didn't appreciate being treated rudely when I first arrived by the gentleman at the door. I made a reservation for 3 and had an e-mail confirmation for 3. He's fussing about it no longer being 4. It never was 4. Either way, you don't make the customer feel badly about something and place blame on them when they first arrive.

Cute restaurant, but come 1pm it is FILLED with early 20-something girls and becomes so loud that you can't even hear yourself think, let alone your friends that are right next to you.
The food was fine, nothing visionary to it. it won't change your life. Don't get the matcha iced though, otherwise you'll be sucking up bits of matcha powder the entire time, because it wasn't thoroughly blended in.

Celebrated my birthday in the Old Rose. The place is beautiful...but overall it was not a great experience. The host was extremely rude. Did not allow my friends to get the table ahead of time even though the table was ready. I asked for a place to leave so flowers and he simply said put them at your table. Food was not great and some of the mains arrived 20min after the rest. We asked for a candle, they forgot. And finally they put a lot of trouble to pay with different cards.

I drove in from Long Island and I am happy to say I found parking on the street. That’s always a plus.
Food was very good. Vegetarian options were plenty. Service I felt was just ok. Had to ask for straws. Had to ask multiple times for things we wanted when there weren’t many people at the restaurant at the time we went. Overall I would try it again though. Ambiance was very nice. Was there for a friends get together.

The place was dirty as was the staffs T-shirt’s and pants. Very unkempt from the front door all the way to the restroom.
The large mirrors above the bar were filthy and the window blinds were covered in dust.
In addition, hardware missing from the ceiling fans.

The space is beautiful but it is dirty.

A train, but it’s still pretty chic. The service is amazing as always, and the interior is beautiful, but I forget every time how terrible the food is. Pros and cons I guess!

Friday evening was hopping! The wait staff is fantastic, the food was very good (special pizza, salads, dessert), and the atmosphere was very welcoming. It got quite noisy toward the end of our meal (we were three women of a certain age), so we repaired to the bar/lounge area in the hotel (fabulous), where one can order from a limited version of the restaurant menu.

Went for brunch. Put in our order waited a very long time. Had to get up to find waitresses to ask where our food was. She went to check and brought our food out but it was ice cold!told her she took it back and brought it back out 15 minutes later still cold. I asked her what the problem was and she said they were having a problem in the kitchen and comped 2 of the 3 meals.

The pasta, arancini, and drinks were out of this world. Despite the busy crowd, our server was attentive and efficient and made our dinner super fun. Also, the Negronis on tap were surprisingly well-made; and I usually hate on-tap cocktails. Ambience in this place is perfection. Would highly recommend for a date spot or for a fun night out with friends. My only criticism would be that the pizzas were underwhelming, but everything else on the menu was phenomenal. Well worth a visit!
