We were a group of three couples out for a nice dinner. The ice storm didn't stop us and we were all glad that we had decided to come. Even our fussiest member (and I mean really fussy) was satisfied. The restaurant is small and pleasant. We were able to hear each other, which was appreciated. The serving staff were very efficient and the food was really good, nicely seasoned, fresh, pleasingly presented and really tasty. Chicken was moist and tender, crab cakes were delicious and the desserts were impressive. I would definitely go again.

Food was delicious, very well priced, and service was perfect. Had great seats at the window and people watched. Had steak frites, beef short rib pappardelle and the salmon. The diner who ordered the salmon said it might have been the best salmon he'd ever had. Doesn't get much better than that! Will definitely be going back.

Very nice surprise. For some reason I thought this restaurant was more of a bar from the outside. Inside was romantically lit with a nice bar seating area as well. Food was really tasty and the staff was very accommodating to any dietary requests. I recommend the salmon. We were a little forgotten at the end and had to ask for coffee but in all fairness my friend and I were dependent in conversation. I would definitely go back.

Service was slow. Food was amazing, but my steak had quite cooled down by the time I got it. Same with my appetizer.

Food and service was good. I was a little annoyed when we were charged $2 extra for water which was brought to our table. Like any restaurant they offered us water when we sat down. When menus came 5 minutes later we saw that their water is some kind of special water which they charge money for, and it isn't actually just a courtesy. Had we known this we would have declined the extra charge for a fancy glass of tap water.

Other then that mild annoyance, the dinner was good.

Great location, polite and polished service, and FANTASTIC food! Went for Valentine's Day dinner and it was the perfect choice. Caesar salad with bacon to start was so delicious and highly recommend any of the risotto dishes for entrees - mouthwatering! Truly loved this restaurant, will definitely be going back!

We could not have been made more welcome - from being addressed by my first name at the door and the offer to hang up my coat , to the attentive yet never intrusive service , the excellent dinners ( with a substitution ) and lots and lots of sparkling water ( for $2 total for both of us !!) to the tour of the " private " dining room upstairs - to - wait for it - being allowed to finish our conversation and then requesting the bill (!) ( rather than having it plunked down in front of us -we were delighted . We will be back and will recommend it to all our friends .

From the moment we walked in the Sidecar team made us feel at home and did a great job handling the meal for our picky group of 7. There were also no issues when we changed the reservation an hour before the booking. The food was very good, and the service was prompt and professional. A fun night out with good food at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Food was great and prices reasonable for what you were getting. I had the steak frite and the steak was great but the fries were super! Chocolate torte for dessert was lovely. Overall a very nice meal...

A little slow with the service and the kitchen despite not being that busy.

Very happy overall.

We returned to Sidecar once again because it is our “special place” for important nights. It didn’t disappoint. The food was amazing as always; fresh, hot, delicious and ample. We enjoyed fabulous wine and food, lovely ambiance and great service. We were located at the end of the restaurant so we could sit together (instead of opposite each other) and the outside wall was a little chilly. Apart from that it was fabulous.

Enjoyed a wonderful night out with friends at Sidecar last weekend. I can't think of another restaurant at this price point that is as good or dependable. Exceptional mushroom risotto with excellent variety of mushrooms and very good concentration. Wine list good with very reasonable pricing. Very nice service as well. Menu would be improved by more seasonal change but highly recommended.

Sidecar is a quaint gem in little italy, that carries an international menu that changes seasonally. The food is extremely well crafted, portions are reasonable, and not over sized. The cost is modest, with dinner around $50 per person including a glass of wine.

The ambiance is cozy, and great for a romantic dinner, or get together with friends.

Strongly recommended!
