Service was good. Ambiance was great. Filet was way over cooked. Lobster was tough and dry. Components of my salad were missing. Great vibe, just not great dinner for cost.

Was in town from Los Angeles for the weekend and ate at many spots but this is the only one I’m taking time out to write a review for. I have to mention the ridiculous reservation drama that went down with their over the top regulations. You “aren’t allowed to know” another group who is dining there as well during COVID. Still shocked the stupid host almost cancelled my reservation because apparently you found out I had a friend dining there at the same time? Absolutely insane. Thankfully the manager took care of it so I was able to experience brunch with the most lack luster food and slowest service I have ever had in my life with a refill on drinks averaging 30 minutes. Just an awful spot all around. Will not be returning

My only regret is that I waited this long to visit Sinema for brunch. I've lived in the city since 2016... But rest assured, I WILL BE MAKING UP FOR LOST TIME! Greg was the absolute best and checked in with us always at just the right time. His name will be in the "special requests" for all my future reservations! As a matter of fact, if he won't be there, then I will need to know ahead of time so I can adjust my date. 😂😂

We went for brunch and everything well exceeded our expectations! The food and drinks were exceptional. We cannot wait to come back for the dinner experience. The inside definitely brings the entire experience together. The best part for us though was our waiter Roger. He’s very knowledgeable in many things, will sit and chat with you, and just takes great care of you overall.

It was a great experience. Our first time at Sinema. We enjoyed the big screen movie (On the Waterfront). The food was outstanding. The atmosphere was even better. We loved our server (Ashley). She was very professional and courteous. We will recommend Sinema to all our friends. We saw several other "special occasion" couples there as well.

This was our first time for brunch. I understand it used to be a buffet, but now is served 'family style' based on choices from the menu. That was hard for me to imagine, and after being there, I'd call it more like 'brunch tapas'! If we'd thought of that in the beginning, we would have ordered more up front. Delicious though - we'll go back.

My significant other and I went for our anniversary. The service was execellent! We told our waiter that we were vegetarians and they were very accommodating. It’s a great value for food and bottomless mimosas. Definitely would recommend!

First time eating here. Went to celebrate a birthday. Very intimate setting. Enjoyed the movies playing on the screen when you walk in. They were showing "Chicago" followed by a Fred Astaire film. Food was great. I had the scallops with risotto and my girlfriend had the shrimp fettuccine.

My wife and I dined on Valentine’s Day and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the service was too. Plenty of smiling faces(through masks of course) and it was nice to have a full menu to choose from rather than a set meal as most places have on special days. The semi-circle booth made the night more intimate and we just had a fantastic experience. Will definitely dine again. Thanks!

My wife and I ate here for a date on Valentine’s Day and her birthday weekend. Everything was incredible, from the food and service to the entire atmosphere. We ordered the five course meal, and every course was incredible. We loved the setting of the old theater and movies playing in the background on some of the walls as well. The restaurant was completely full, but each table had its own tall booth so it still felt very private and perfect for a romantic date.

If I could give 10 stars then I would! My boyfriend and I did a double date here for an early Valentine's Day / Birthday event for us all. The entire experience from start to finish was absolutely mind blowing. TJ was our server and he was so patient with us. We had a million questions for him and he never once hesitated while answering each of our questions with such confidence. This was by far the best service I have ever experienced in any restaurant, ever. Hands down. The food was beautifully prepared and the taste of everything was phenomenal. Everything was executed perfectly throughout the night. The atmosphere of the entire restaurant was so relaxing and elegant. We have never experienced something so amazing. I would highly recommend the Sinema to anyone looking for a special night out.
