    Service, food, & experience were amazing. We were celebrating my wife’s B-Day with family and a late brunch was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. Only complaint was that our obsession with good gravy got us cut-off from more by the chef as they were running low (fist time ever)!

    This was our first Sinema experience and it was a really good one! We were celebrating our Anniversary. Sinema is the perfect place for a celebration! The Art Deco decor is beautiful! So many special little nooks and crannies. The upstairs lounge has a fabulous vibe. We both had the Tasting Menu. It is a bit pricey but worth it…the food is “foodie” caliber! And my husband does not like scallops which was the 3rd course. They very willingly substituted gnocchi without hesitation. The only hiccup was our seating. I had made a specific request on Open Table when I made the reservation. They didn’t see that request and it caused a bit of uneasiness but it eventually was handled and all was well. Highly recommend. We will no doubt go back many times!

    My husband and I made a reservation at Sinema to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We received complimentary glasses of champagne upon sitting down. We both ordered cocktails that we loved. The burrata appetizer was delicious. I ordered the capellini and my husband ordered the filet. Both were delicious and exceptional. Our server, Justin, was incredible and made our night so special. The Beverage Director, Brett, was extremely knowledgeable and kind and helped created a custom whiskey flight for my husband that he loved. This was a unique, delicious, and really special experience from beginning to end!

    We celebrated my sons 21st birthday at Sinema. We ordered the tasting menu and I also added in the "make it special" add on which includes roses and a note. Our server, Patrick, was wonderful and made us all laugh but he also gave us great info on the delicious drinks and phenomenal food. Every bite was better than the one before. It's been years since I've had food so good ALONG with spectacular service. Thank you for making my son's 21st such a memorable experience. We WILL return.

    My husband and I came to Sinema for my 40th birthday. The upstairs lounge area was quite impressive and had the perfect ambiance for the evening. There was a movie playing on the big screen and we found that a great addition to the entertainment. Our waiter TJ was very bubbly and checked back often to make sure our we had a great experience. Our food was delicious and they even had non alcoholic liquor options which I was delighted to discover. Overall we had a great time and will visit again.

    My S/O and I came here for our five year anniversary, and of all the places we were considering, I’m so glad we went with Sinema. Everything about this place was awesome. I’m awful at remembering names, but our server was the creator of the cocktail I had (Kuzco’s Poison- you were awesome!!!) and he was incredibly personable and helpful. The ambience of the restaurant fit in every corner. They really didn’t miss an opportunity to connect the dots with the restaurants theme- the cocktails were named for various movie references which was also super fun. The food was great, and the people really made the experience. My S/O’s only note to this place outside of the rest of this review is that the cocktails were too pricey for the quantity. I both agree and disagree- the drink I had tasted incredible. Of course, I wish I had just a little bit bigger of a glass for it for the amount we spent, but the quality was prime.

    The food was excellent! I had the Capellini and it was phenomenal. However we had a reservation for 8 and the booth was too small for that number of people. We were really close together. Our waitress was nice and knowledgeable. We will definitely go back but make sure if you make a reservation for more than 6 request a table not a booth.

    Sinema was amazing! The decor is super cool with old movie posters and photos of Greta Garbo, Katherine Hepburn, etc. The food was especially tasty, and the drinks were fabulous. Ask for they Whiskey guy. He is very knowledgeable and helpful and even helped a couple in our crew that don't drink alcohol, find some alcohol free Whiskeys, gin, and tequila! The service was super attentive and helpful. The Ravioli appetizers and the homemade bread were super delicious as well!
