I made a reservation for my husband's birthday and was delighted by the experience. I booked this place based on photos, the menu and reviews, and it lived up to the expectation and then some. They had a special menu that wished my husband a happy birthday which was such a memorable touch! We also enjoyed a dessert in honor of his birthday. The food was great and so was the service. We would definitely come back for dinner any time!

Town was fine, but nothing special. Drinks were ordinary, wine list not exceptional. We shared several appetizers and the best was the cauliflower. Fish dishes were good, roast chicken bland. Nothing wrong with the restaurant, but nothing that made it stand out either.

Town is a nice spot. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The food would be the only problem. It lacked flavour but it was quality cuts. If they improve on the seasoning, it’s 5 stars. I will go again and try something else. I had the pork chop and tried the chicken rib combo and the all lacked flavour. Chicken skin not crispy. The skin was off putting.

Wonderful food and service - plus a menu for every palate in a cozy setting. A bit loud but too busy eating to worry about talking.

Our party of four all enjoyed their meal (skirt steak and sea bass) and dessert (bread pudding, bananas foster, chocolate cake). Our server recommended a tasty pinot. Our cocktails were delicious. The restaurant was full even on a Tuesday night which made for some noise, but you could still hold a conversation without feeling that you needed to talk louder. We're usually very happy dining at Town.

I had the butternut squash risotto. I asked to have chicken added...which they did, however, a 1/2 chicken was just placed on top of the risotto! Not very enticing nor appetizing and the chicken was dry. I assumed they would cut up the chicken and mix it into the risotto dish.

As a regular Town patron, service is usually excellent but this server wasn’t particularly friendly and seemed like he wanted to be elsewhere.

Everything was great except the potatoes on my meal were burnt. I brought it to the waitress attention & she mentioned it was subtracted from the bill but instead I saw a surcharge which I wish I'd taken a picture of. But overall everything was great.

I go to town frequently. Town is the restaurant that I will go to whenever get a chance. I always sit outside and am disappointed that you cannot make reservations for an outside seat. Since I frequent the restaurant on a regular basis the menu becomes stagnant. It would be nice if there were specials or the menu changed often. The desert menu never changes.

Enrique (waiter) made the evening more special with his great service touch, but the food and buzz was equally special. Great eating place.

Absolutely delicious cheeseburger with gruyere, fries thin and crisp, my favorite and excellent cocktails, the pomegranate martini was fabulous! Town never disappoints, excellent dining experience, atmosphere and attentive service. So busy but you do not feel rushed, they truly know what they are doing. Definitely top dog in the neighborhood.

From the reviews on yelp I was expecting a better quality meal; than I got. The Paradox Merlot was great. The chicken enchiladas were kind of dry and lacked the gooey cheese I would normally expect from that meal.

We were seated quickly and on time with our reservation. Since I had marked Birthday on the reservation, we were given custom printed menus that wished me happy birthday at the top. We had steaks, both cooked perfectly. I think the broccoli was a little over seasoned, but that's a matter of taste. At the end of our meal the waiter brought a special birthday dessert with a candle. Service was prompt and professional. The interior is nice enough, but it was rather noisy. We were still able to have our own conversation without too much trouble.
