The staff is very polite, the food is very good and the dining room is very scenic. However, the most accurate way to describe our experience was that we had “an efficient dinner”. When the reservation was made, I noted that we were celebrating our anniversary and each staff member we encountered during our visit was very friendly and wished us a “happy anniversary”. Unfortunately, the service was so efficient that we never had time to talk to one another, relax between courses or enjoy the scenery. As soon as the bread was delivered to our table, our appetizers arrived. As soon as the plates from our appetizers were cleared, our entrees arrived. Dessert menus were on the table less than a minute after entrée plates were cleared and the desserts arrived within a couple minutes of ordering them. The waiter asked us if we wanted anything else, we declined and our bill was on the table. We felt like they needed our table and wanted to get us out as quickly as possible. I would recommend this restaurant if you want a good meal before the theater and you are on a timetable. If you want a relaxing, romantic evening, this is not the place. The meal was executed with military precision, but that is not why we made the reservation.

Chris brought us in and made us feel at home. The service,table, food and wine were top rate. We brought a business associate with us and he was mightily impressed. We must arrange for better weather in this town.The view was a bot foggy.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at R2L for Mother's Day. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm. The service was outstanding. The only downside was the little boy that wouldn't stop having a tantrum next to us. However, that couldn't be helped. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Service was ok she seemed more catering to the people sitting at the window than our table and we payed just as much as the people sitting at the window seat for the amount of money we payed for the food it was just ok plus for the first 15 minutes all we got was water took a while to take order

We went for our anniversary and made it known on reservation. Our waitress never even mentioned it. Took about 20 minutes before our drink order was even placed. Had trouble getting our server to look in our direction the whole night. Overall poor experience.

This restaurant was an absolute treat. We were treated so well. The ambiance was incredible, dimly lit with a gorgeous view of the city from any seat. They were very polite and let us take our time. The food selection was good and our food was outstanding! I will absolutely be coming back to this restaurant in the future. 5 stars.

It had been a while since I went here, and it was great before. This time there were people wearing sneakers and shorts, not business casual attire, and it just felt less classy than it should have. The food was also incredibly bland. There was no seasoning or spice to anything. I was very disappointed.

We were put off by the response from the hostess when we asked about a window view. She said they all had been "purchased" already. Simply saying "sorry, I'm afraid we don't have any of those tables open tonight" would have been more polite. Then when we were leaving, we left the table, and I was waiting for my guest, and she came up and asked what I was doing.

Food was OK, but nothing special. I wish the lobster bisque was still on the menu.

No, I won't be coming back

Great food and drinks, and impeccable, sincere service. And of course AWESOME views. But what really made our 22nd wedding anniversary dinner so fantastic was our server Caroline. She had a wonderful balance of professional and personable, and a very helpful knowledge of the menu. Thanks to all the staff as well.

Everything was amazing except we sat in the only window spot in the entire restaurant with one enormous beam blocking half our view. The restaurant has seats by all the windows, we happen to have the only one with a beam, which they can probably fix with changing it to a table by the window instead of booth seat. Otherwise, amazing food, amazing service!

The place is awesome, the restaurant is so nice . Really the only reason I go there . The drink list is great . I probably been there 10 times and every time I go I am disgusted with the food . The menu is terrible . I strictly go for the atmosphere. I really don’t understand, they have to work on the menu , it’s like the big running joke with that place , the food is so bad

Very disappointing. The view was not worth the cost of the meal. The food was hit or miss. The short ribs/filet combo was great and the brussel sprouts were outstanding. The rib eye had a lot of fat and was undercooked. The lobster mac and cheese was awful. They can take some lessons from the Capital Grille. The wait staff was attentive and pleasant but the music was so loud it was hard to have a conversation. We could have had two great experiences somewhere else for what our dinner cost. Sorry, but we won’t be back.

Even on a drizzly evening, the view of the city at night was gorgeous. The food was spectacular and service absolutely wonderful. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and helpful, and the rest of the staff were kind, fun and unobtrusive as well. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate an extra-special occasion. Totally worth every penny.
