    We had our meals before we have our initial bar order. Seemed like a management issue. People could walk up to bar and get served immediately but took over 30 minutes at a table. This place is leaving a lot of money on the table with service that slow.

    Love coming here! I tried the hand breaded chicken tenderloins for the first time and they were delicious! The ranch dipping sauce is truly amazing! I also tried the lion Lemonade, definitely coming back for that drink! Overall an amazing experience!

    I have been several times previously but was a long gap in time since last eating here. I was concerned getting a table would be difficult so booked in advance. Other than a challenge finding a parking spot since the nearest lot was full the restaurant was fairly empty which was odd for a Saturday night. A concert was going on at the Music Factory though. Perhaps having valet parking on concert nights and weekends might be a good idea and was suspecting many people simply gave up. As for our dining experience my girlfriend and I were very happy. Despite one of our servers was new and in training she was shadowed by a veteran employee which kept the ordering process running smoothly. We started off with a mojito and a top-shelf margarita accompanied with grilled brussel sprouts as an app. For entrees she had the chicken and I had the ribeye. Both were excellent and done exactly as ordered. Overall a very good experience and will be back.

    Great place to go to lunch! Not as many options, so that was kind of a bummer. I ordered the spicy fried chicken sandwich and it was a let down because it was not spicy at all. Although it was a very good sandwich I wouldn’t say it is spicy! But overall the food was good just wished it was actually spicy!

    Amazing place. This is my third time but this time I felt there were hardly any vegetarian options. Drinks were good. Would definitely have to think again to revisit as dining options for vegetarians are extremely limited.

    This is a great place to go prior to an event in the Toyota Music Factory for drinks and food. Their happy hour menu is has various choices and their waiters/waitresses were very nice. They gave us a couple of recommendations for drinks and their favorite food. It seems like everyone there was enjoying themselves.

    Food was excellent. Server was good but bar service was terrible. We didn’t get our drinks until after our appetizer and entrees. Our second drink took even longer. Even after the occupancy was cut in half.

    Our server was absolutely amazing and so was the food. The Bar staff was atrocious and they lived up to their name. I’m certain that is why it’s named The Thirsty Lion. Don’t expect to get a drink for 20-30 minutes on a busy night. Instead of the bar staff rising to the occasion and being as successful as they could in the moment they just shook their heads in disgust and gave up. No hustle, just a sloth like brooding around and complaining about being over worked and under staffed. Missed a great money making opportunity and made me never want to return to this establishment.

    Went there for lunch. The menu was impressive and had a wide range of foods. I ordered the ramen and although it was flavorful, the noodle use was just spaghetti. :-( The atmosphere was nice though and probably great for Happy Hour.

    I went for a business meeting and had a wonderful time. The bar was amazing well with spacious and the chairs were extra extra comfy. We had the brussels sprouts and the bowl with pork and a delicious sauce. For dessert at the crème brûlée which was excellent. The service was amazing, the drinks very good. I will definitely be back. Did I mention how amazing the brussels sprouts?
