We had a wonderful time, excellent service, delicious savoury gourmet meals and ambiance. The architecture of your restaurant is Absolutely Stunning!

We definitely will be back and share our experience.
We’ve had a few celebrations at your restaurant my Mom’s 85th birthday and My daughter and I at the bar for cocktails and appetizers.

Thank you so much,
Connie Abella

Haley was our server! She was just fabulous!
She is one of the most pleasant servers we have run across lately!
She is obviously a very valuable part of your team!

The service was the worst I ever have got. It took 20 minutes for her to come get our drink order and I had to get up and tell someone to come to the table else it would have taken longer. Then it took another 15 minutes for the drinks to come. The food was okay nothing special.

The ambiance of the restaurant if bustling and fairly loud, so if you are looking for intimate dining, this is not the place, but if you are open to having a great time and enjoying the sounds of people laughing, talking and enjoying life, then it is great.
The food is quite good,with a nice variety of offerings on the menu. At times they have drink specials and they are quite tasty. We have been to this restaurant at least five times in the past year and have always enjoyed our meals.

Was recommended to go by a friend, after the first visit I was hooked! Everything is done right. Customer service, food, atmosphere, drinks...

Great place to go for a much needed break from reality.

I have to commend the wait and cook staff. The ambiance and meal was amazing. We had the most delightful waitress. She made recommendations as I have some dietary restrictions. The meal was incredible.

Only recommendation for improvement is look at options for lactose and vegan consumers. There's lots of ways to create cream dishes that would appeal to a larger variety of individuals who maybe restricted by choice of allergy.

Overall it was disappointing. We live in the area and finally decided to check it out, as we had heard some good things.

I expected at least an above “pub” experience. But my husband had a beer served in a bottle with no offer of a glass, and the cutlery was wrapped in a cheap napkin that reminded me of wing night at a pub.

Our server was good - although the serving staff seemed quite bored and gathered to chat quite often. And the hostess seemed to think she was seating people at a club in NY. Not friendly and should really pay some attention to what she is doing.

And then the food was “meh” - certainly not worth the price.

I expected more and was just disappointed.

Had a great dinner out with the kids for my husband’s birthday. Thought the COVID spacing was great. Server was awesome and great with our kids too. Food was tasty. I only gave 4 stars for food cause I thought presentation could’ve been slightly nicer but food tasted great and that’s what matters. Would definitely go back.

This was my first time at Starbelly. Food and service was excellent! The place looks nice, very modern. We were unfortunately seated by the black wall where there was no window and it was quite dark! They gave us a couple of candles, which helped, but I recommend them putting in a light on that wall! Otherwise, everything else was wonderful!

Nothing tasted home made everything tasted like it had come from a feeezer. Pizza was soggy, burger was incredible dry. Coconut shrimp tasted like fast food. Wine was great!

My beet salad came without walnuts and one piece of the cheese. The server informed us that they had kitchen staff in training, so that was fine! They fixed it :)
