    Great service, food was delicious. There was a bit of ambient noise that was distracting and I was surprised at the lack of even business casual dress. Seems like nobody dresses even a little for dinner at a nice restaurant anymore.

    Food overall was only pretty good, but not worth it to come back. I like to have a good restaurant in walking distance of the Playhouse, but just like with Cafe Mezzanotti, was disappointed.

    Steak and lamb were both way over-seasoned and somewhat overcooked. They were almost inedible and definitely not worth the ~$50 each we paid.

    Service was outstanding. Apps were great. Entrees were ok, undercooked sweet potatos and steak was just ok. For the price and especially since the restaurant was not busy expected a better meal.

    Unfortunately like others the restaurant was under staffed. This caused a long wait time for our food and my daughters order wasn't right. The food was good but it always is. I got the scallops and they were great.

    We visited during Mothers Day brunch. Pancakes and waffles were marginal at best. Both tasted like instant. This restaurant doesn’t typically have breakfast so perhaps the dinner menu is better

    Everything about our experience at Tonic was good. The hostess was pleasant, the bartenders were fantastic, our server was great, and the food was good as well. We went on a Saturday evening and they had live music. It was perfect. Loud enough for all to hear, but still able to hold a conversation. We will definitely go back again.

    Service was rather poor. Our waiter was inattentive and never checked on us after our meals were delivered. We had to chase him down for the check so we could make our show at the Playhouse. He also was not very friendly.

    The Goat cheese appetizer was awesome. My tonic burger was just "OK'.... nothing wrong with it, but the burger itself was nothing special. My wife enjoyed the 1/2 boneless chicken.

    The food was fantastic! The drinks were amazing and the serve was great. We were surprised by how busy it was and how packed the venue became even though it was a Friday night. The venue has tables in the back, away from the bar and the drama but it was still unexpected and might be a lot if busy isn’t your vibe. Overall love this gem in the city. Perfect for a date night, cocktails, or a great venue for a nice group dinner or celebration!

    The place is very pretty, clean, staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. The food is amazing! I ordered the wolffish and the flavors and ingredients in the dish complemented each other so well, no flavor was over powering or fighting with each other, flavor was splendid. My husband ordered duck and his food was perfectly cooked, lightly seasoned but the flavors were so amazing and the ingredients so fresh and Al dente. I will definitely go back and try other dishes of the menu!
