Good food, bad parking and the fact that valet is not free hurts. Service (for a buffet) was slow but very pleasant. I'd eat there anytime overall.

I have been to Sinema on many occasions for brunch, birthday parties and happy hour and had an enjoyable experience each time. I dined there Sunday, June 2 for a birthday brunch and the experience was less than pleasurable. I chose Sinema for them ambience, tasty brunch and great service. This visit, I can only say that the service was great. I placed a reservation online 4 days prior to the event only to have to wait 20 to 25 minutes to be seated. Several of the food items on the brunch were not available and had to wait additional time for them to refill the items. Once refilled, some of the items were not fully cooked (bacon). Lastly, at 2 different food stations, the plates were dirty. And not just 1 or 2 plates.....several of them were dirty. So much so, that they had to replace an entire stack of plates at each station. The food also lacked seasoning. Im not sure of the situation, because this is not a typical experience of Sinema, but the entire visit sans the server was questionable. For a $45 brunch and bottomless mimosas, I cannot say that I got my money's worth. Again, our server was amazing and very attentive, but the entire visit was disappointing. It will be a while before I visit again

We have dined with sinema many times but today was the first time for brunch. Everything was great, as usual. Especially the waffle bar. However; If I may make a suggestion, please seat young children (under 5) and babies on the first floor. It will benefit you greatly if everyone knows there is a nice child free haven to have their brunch. (Esp IF they’ve had a late night the evening before) thank you!

We came for our fifth anniversary celebration, and it was an incredible experience. We first enjoyed cocktails at the bar upstairs and the drinks were fantastic and the bartender was wonderful. Mike was our server for dinner, and he was amazing! He guided us through the menus and we followed all of his suggestions. Everything was remarkable! One of the best meals we have ever had.

Great meal for our group. I have lots of allergies and they listened carefully and provided a wonderful meal meeting my diet restrictions. The charcuterie board was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed it, the short ribs and duck were both exceptional. No one was disappointed, I had requested a quiet table and they provided the perfect spot.

Our food was outstanding, and our server Mike went out of his way to make my father’s 74th birthday wonderful with special touches throughout the evening.
Highly recommend the cheese and meat board for something fun and new to taste as a group. The agnolotti starter is also a must.
FYI, not a lot of vegetarian options, but the few they have are fantastic.

Do not recommend this place. It was basically a buffet. There wasn’t much on the a la carte menu. The food was subpar and the service was slow. It’s a bachelorette party paradise. Less than impressed.

The Mother's Day brunch was exceptional. Stations were spread out throughout the restaurant, so it never felt crowded... plus there were items to order off the menu and brought directly to the table that were also included... no standing around while you wait for your omelet! A great experience!

Sinema is a restaurant beyond any restaurant. We arrived there about ten minutes before our reservation. The host was so friendly! She said she really liked the spot that she saved for us, so we could either get another spot at that time or wait the ten minutes and get the spot they originally reserved for us. We opted to wait. We went to the bar and had a cocktail which the mixologist did an amazing job with. Then, we went to our spot, and it was great that we waited! It was in the perfect area, and great seating style for pictures. The food was exquisite! The steak frites and scallops were absolutely delicious. The alcohol here was also fantastic! Our server was so helpful as well. At one point, we asked her for some recommendations for things to do, and her recommendations were great ideas that we needed! Sinema is an amazing restaurant and the place to go!

We loved the environment - it was cozy and not to loud. We also loved everything that we ate - our one thought was that the portions were rather small. We would definitely recommend. Also, be sure to check out the ladies restroom!
