    Went for a restaurant menu. Turns out, one of the entrees and two of the desserts were not available. When questioned about some replacements, the server said she couldn’t do it because of the “price differences”. She actually began to argue with us, as if the price difference would come out of her paycheck. We felt it was deceptive, because we weren’t informed when first arrived. We asked to speak to the manager who helped the situation. The server never came back. The manager brought the bill, and took the payment. We could overhear the server squabbling with another employee.

    Always good food and service. My husband and I prefer sitting in the bar, either at a high top or at the bar itself. It’s a bit more cozy of an atmosphere as opposed to the main restaurant seating. Reserve 22 is a little hidden gem.

    Very disappointed. We were sat at 7:00 right on time for our reservation. Wait staff did not come by to say hi, ask if we had questions or even give us water for 20 min after I had to ask someone at 7:15 where our server was. Our waiter was friendly enough but seemed to be the bartender and didn’t quite grasp clearing plates from the table as they were emptied. The food was mediocre at best. Ive had that exact dish prepared much better in many other places. Was tasteless and drowned in oil. This restaurant has good reviews so we were excited to eat here but were left underwhelmed. Wish I had something better to say about it.

    There were a few big NYE parties seated just ahead of us, so it took a little while to put in our drink and food orders. However, the server was very apologetic and did a great job once she got caught up. We both had one of the chef’s specials - the London broil. The steak was fantastic, as was the glaze and the vegetables. The portion was also better - a little less than the 8-ounce sirloin on the menu - which meant we had enough room for dessert, another nightly special, the salted caramel gelato sundae. The dining room was also nicely decorated for the holidays. An excellent meal for a NYE on the town!

    The food was just ok. Chicken was dry. Flavor was lacking. The Old Fashion I ordered was very good. Our server was rushing us through our evening. Kept trying to take our order when we told her we weren't going to be ready. Asked her to come back in awhile, we wanted to enjoy our drinks and talk. She kept circling back to us asking for our order. Annoyed, we gave her our order, didn't order anymore drinks or dessert.
