    Fun place. We were there on a Saturday night. There was music playing and then a singer came up and was signing some older songs. People were up dancing. Fun club vibe back in the days of the brat pack (think Sinatra, Sammy Davis..). I’d go back. Food and service were good.

    We had a great time. Food was delicious. I was upset when I received my bill and saw that my French Martin it had two different prices. I said $11 and underneath was another charge for $3 making my drink $14. He couldn’t explain the two different prices to me but took $1 off of each one. It doesn’t make sense why they did that and I won’t order that again. Suzanne

    My husband and I had a great time at Par 440 last Friday night! A friend recommended Par 440 and we are glad she did! The service and food were great! The music was excellent though way too loud! Even during the breaks, the background music made it hard to hold a conversation. The singer had a great voice and the audience definitely responded with lots of dancing and singing along!

    While the food and service was great, the live band (singing was phenomenal) was a bit too loud. Couldn’t have a conversation at our dinner table. Left with a headache.

    If July 2nd was opening night, it was a bumpy one, but I don’t believe it was. From the poorly coordinated greeting and seating to food that was overpriced and salty. The service staff consisted of 2 (who were working very hard) but attention was limited and slow. Other than one entree which was reasonably good the rest of meal was sub-par for a $150 meal (2 people) in this area. Skipping dessert & coffee was a no brainer. Waiting 30 min to actually get the check was the cherry on top.

    I come to see Gerard Esposito every month. I’ve been doing that for years…pre COVID. Always a great experience. However since the reopening no one pays attention to the special requests for seating. I know this because there’s always random people eating dinner near the dance floor when we arrive, occupying one of the tables that I requested and uninterested in staying for the show. Last Saturday night was the first time I got a good table as per my written request. It’s frustrating….the new staff is nice but needs to pay attention to reservation requests. Food has now gotten as good as it was pre COVID. Much appreciated.

    On the night we visited, the restaurant, which is fairly large, had three couples at the bar and guests at maybe four other tables. It was nearly empty. While our server was great, service was slow. I’m not sure if he was alone. He may have been. It took a long time for the food to come out. Water was served in plastic cups. This was strange, especially considering the bill came to about $250. There were four of us. Only one alcoholic beverage was ordered - beer, two appetizers — calamari and a pretzel, and four moderately priced entrees. A dj blasted some music at 8, and eventually turned it down and walked away. I would have expected more — better value and better ambience.

    WAAAAY TOO LOUD between 7:30 and 9PM. Let everyone eat and converse with more soft and mild dinner music from E.R.I.C. He can then kick it up and get wild to finish the nite. It made dinner with friends trying to catch up ridiculous. Food was pretty good, value was perfect and dancing was fun. Just get E.R.I.C to turn it half way till after 9PM. I swear you won't lose customers and will have to turn many away. Can't recommend you to anyone wanting to go there before 9:30pm Friday w/E.R.I.C unless wearing ear plugs.

    The atmosphere was lively. I would ask that the volume with the singer/music should be taken down a bit so that you can have a conversation at your table without yelling. Other that, it was an enjoyable experience.

    Have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time based on all the good reviews. We were so disappointed. From the lack of atmosphere, to the under par food and drinks in plastic cups, it was not what we were expecting for a fine dining experience. We will not be going back.

    My dinner companion and I had a lot of fun there. We went on a Friday night, and they had a singer there. He was singing R&B tunes from artists like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, and others of that time period. There were a good number of people dancing and hustling on the dance floor, which was very nice to see! The food and drinks were reasonably priced and plentiful! The service was outstanding..very attentive but not overbearing. Overall, a very nice place to hang out at! I will definitely come back there in the near future

    We were 4 girls out for lunch on a Sunday to celebrate a birthday. They did not have a drink menu. Ordered a bloody Mary. Got the bill, it was an “Absolute” bloody Mary for $15. It was served in a plastic cup. I think it was very presumptuous of them to think it was appropriate to use premium vodka without asking.

    An hour after I was seated, my friend had to find out server. My dinner came, I ordered shrimp and garlic ravioli. Not sure where the shrimp was but there was loads of garlic. My friends meal came 30 minutes later. The musician/entertainer was very good although the music was very loud.

    My only complaint was not being seated where I requested. Hostess said that she never got my request, which was stated in my original reservation and I called to confirm . However, it was her first day and I understand that she may have been overwhelmed a bit. I fully expect that to be corrected next time. It worked out fine. All things considered, it was a wonderful experience.
