Had visited once in 2020 pre-pandemic for a party. Was excited to return. I am deathly allergic to spinach and even cross-contamination from anything my partner eats can drastically affect me. We discussed this with the server so that she understood the severity and she stated that she would make sure there was no spinach. The kitchen substituted spinach for something in my fiance's entree but we weren't told. He discovered it mid-way through the plate. The management initially tried to make light of the situation but finally ended up remaking our entrees. Unfortunately, for me, I was hesitant to eat anything so my meal was wasted.

They didn't charge us for the entrees but that simply wasn't enough to make up for ruining a 50th birthday celebration. Sadly we won't return.

PLEASE train your staff on food allergies and the severity of cross contamination. This is literally a life and death situation for me.

Fantastic atmosphere and decor.

Came for our wedding anniversary. Restaurant thoughtfully had two roses for us.

Very good service. Food and drink were also very good. Would encourage them to be a bit more flexible with menu and food preparation. No substitutions and no ability to modify cooking style makes it difficult for those with dietary restrictions to enjoy the same experience as those without those concerns

Food was alright. Service was amazing. But the people sat around us we’re extremely loud and yelling, standing around and knocking into our chair. Shocking that no staff told them to keep it down and get control of themselves. Would not come back.

As a whole, Sinema is impressive. I invited friends who had never had the pleasure of experiencing tantalizing tastebuds teases that is brought to your table. But, Sinema did not disappoint. When we left this classy, cool establishment, I was deemed the "Queen" of brunching. The only problem that we had was the wait staff didn't realize that we're queens and barely visited our thrown. We didn't receive utensils, water or the quality service that a "Queen" deserves. After we communicated our expectations, all hail to the wait staff! But don't take my word, check Sinema out for yourself.

For the price paid, Sinema was a great disappointment. The food brought to the table, while it did taste well, was cold. We did bring this to the attention of our server Patrick, who did make attempts to bring us hot items, without much success. The mimosas were served with such poor quality sparkling wine that it was basically koolaid sweet and undrinkable. That only decent part of the meal was the plain ordered short stack that did arrive at the table hot, but without syrup. Once the syrup did arrive, it was warm, but better than cold. We will not return and will not recommend.

We chose the premium tasting dinner. Portions incredibly small. Average fare. Not worth $150 per person by any means. They did remove 1 dinner charge (-$75) but it was still $300 for 2 people to get out of the door. Don’t waste your money.

We had a date night on a Tuesday night and selected to do the 5-Course tasting with a pairing. All of the food was presented beautifully and tasted absolutely delicious. The chef really has put thought into creating a story with the courses and they match wonderfully with the wine pairings given. The atmosphere gives you an Old Hollywood feel and the service was exceptional. Very friendly staff and the portions were perfect for leaving us that “just right” full!

The food was over priced. We got the “bread board”. Spoiler, it’s on a plate. It’s also the size of a small fist roll thinly sliced that you have to battle to get a slice off. We had a party of 6, we needed 3-4 of those small things. The server should have certainly informed us of the size! We were entertaining for a business dinner, and spoke highly of Sinema. It made us look bad. $50+ for a regular filet is high also. I try to be understanding with the current shipping issues. The menu over complicated the wording and it was off putting to our guests. It only made them feel uncomfortable and unwelcomed. It’s sucks, we will be having our second company dinner there… renting the entire upstairs. I hope that goes better.

First the positives: The food was amazing and the servers were friendly. I can't say enough good things about the food... I tried almost every item in the brunch menu and loved everything.

The negatives: We were sat outdoors (by choice) which could have been very nice, but our waitress only came by about once ever 20 minutes which is not ideal for a brunch buffet in which you are served. We spent a lot of down time waiting and even decided against a final round after sitting for nearly 25 minutes without seeing our waitress. Ultimately we had to go in to the front desk to request our bill. One other complaint about sitting outdoors was the wafting odors from nearby dumpsters. Though not constant, the 5 or 6 times the winds changed during our meal was off-putting.

Overall the food was worth the price. There service wasn't.
