    This was our first time and a fantastic experience. Looking for live jazz, I made a reservation here. I inquired on a local page about seating with a view of the band and an employee saw it and took care of us! The food was incredible, great ambiance, fabulous drink selections, amazing service, and an unexpected bonus was the view of downtown. The noise level was just right. Always a buzz, music was perfect and we could still hear each other talk. We are already planning our next visit.

    Chef is too particular and doesn’t allow any changes/substitutions. Salt was used to hide lack of flavor. Atmosphere and staff were fantastic but will never go back unless the chef changes.

    Thought the food was relatively disappointing. Soup appetizer was good. But was relatively disappointed in the price and type of steak. Service was decent but the price was a bit too high for what we got. Not sure I'd go back again.

    don't waste your money. food is mediocre at best. i got the chilean sea bass and it was flavorless and it's presentation was straight out of 1990s despite it being one of their most popular dishes. it was boring and lacking seasoning. service was okay. nothing noteworthy. although the host staff was very friendly and inviting. crab dip was mediocre. lacking crab and flavor. we also go the yellowtail crudo app per our servers recommendation. again lacking flavor and was room temperature fish with nothing to it. scallops were just okay. i was so excited to try but was quickly disappointed and won't be back. 200 dollars down the drain.

    The food was bland. The calamari appetizer was subpar and the papardelle was hard to eat. I added shrimp and seared scallops to it and was charged $16 for 1 soggy scallop. The shrimp was probably the best part of the meal. The dessert sampler was also bland. I expected more for a $200 meal. My husband got the Chilean sea bass and he said it was okay. Jeff, the waiter, was great though. Very attentive and funny.

    We love Cioppino and go here often. We came for NYE dinner. Everyone’s meals were delicious except my mom and sister who got the Chilean sea bass and the pasta dish. it seemed like it was done before everyone else’s and sat under the warmer for a while until our other meals were finished cooking which resulted in the fish being a little overcooked and the pasta came out cold. However, the apps we ordered (shrimp, calamari, burrata) and the other meals (short rib, NY strips, and crab cakes) were excellent. Our server was good but it was a little hard to hear her.

    With many tables open, I was seated right in front of the band… the other two in my party weren’t there yet. I asked to be seated somewhere a little farther and it seemed to be an inconvenience by the hostess. Once seated, it took about 10 minutes for someone to greet me and pour water. Once my friends arrived and we had an assigned waitress, our service was slow across the board, we had difficulty flagging down the waitress when we needed drinks, and there was marked attitude when one member of our party questioned her martini glass being less than full when it arrived to our table. The member of our party who paid made the choice to tip under 20% because our service wasn’t up to the standards we would expect. When we walked out, our waitress… I believe her name was Haley… said loudly, sarcastically and verbatim to my friend who paid - “you’re so generous, you’re a gem. Thank you soooo much” It was really uncalled for. I hope this type of behavior isn’t a repeat pattern as I’ve enjoyed my previous experiences here.
