I read a lot of bad reviews and so I was skeptical about going -- in fact, I almost cancelled my reservation, but I'm glad I didn't. The food was excellent! Service was slow, but polite. I would definitely go again next time I'm in town.

This place was decorated nicely. Quiet atmosphere. My pasta was overcooked. Nice menu selection. server seemed uncomfortable waiting on us. Will try brunch next time.

We were in town and it happened to be my birthday and it was within 1 block walking distance so we thought we would try something new! The food really was tasty and I would go there again for the food. However, the service was incredibly slow. It was worse when two huge parties came in. The only one that actually smiled and showed any personality was the server at the end, we had three different people help us and only the last one actually paid attention and help close our bill out.

The food was amazing! The atmosphere was beautiful and peaceful, and the staff was wonderful. My friends and I each enjoyed our meal so much, and we're very pleased with the staff and how quickly they served us. Overall great experience!

The restaurant is ridiculoulsy overpriced and the servie was horrific. We were there at 5pm and weren't served dinner until 6. I am sorry we went.

Very slow service; apparently understaffed on a Friday.

A great restaurant in a great location. I started with the Chopra Salad. While I completely finished it, I found it to be a little heavy on the lemon dressing and a little light on the pears, which I think could have cut the tartness of the dressing more. The bread was warm and the oil, balsamic and cheese combo to use as a dip was spot on. My entree was the tagliolini al salmone and it was excellent. Not too fishy despite enough pieces of salmon, and not too heavy despite the creamy, sauce. The service was fantastic, never letting my water cup empty. And, the price was about right for a restaurant in this outstanding central location. In fact, I will absolutely be visiting again while here.

The goddess drink was perfect. We got four different pasta dishes. The rigatoni was dry and the lobster ravioli was not heart shaped like the menu said, but still delicious.

Had a great prefix lunch menu and were accommodating of the late arrival of a colleague.

The restaurant was not busy at all. Food took way too long that the server brought out bruschetta to fill in the time.

My porcini mushroom entrée was not fully cooked.
