Server was efficient, available and polite. Coffee served was luke warm. I ordered a NY Strip and it was tough and tasteless, so bad I had to send it back and ordered the Sea Bass which was good but again not suffiently . In fact many of the dishes were not served sufficiently hot. Overall mediocre and not worth the high prices.
I will likely not return.

The food was delicious and we all really had a great time. We had a great booth and the waiter was very friendly. The waiter just didn’t space out our meals. So we were still eating the appetizers when our food arrived. Other than that the food was excellent. The French onion soup was top notch!

One of my favorite places to eat with friends. Came with a party of 10 and we all had a great time. Some members of our party had never been there, but loved it and made plans to come back.

Standard was perfect for an after opera meeting place with the rest of the family. We have always enjoyed our meals here. It's in the mall, but doesn't feel like it. The staff is extremely accommodating (we brought our own cake, and someone started off by spilling his water all over), the menu has something for everyone, and the food is consistently good. There is a lively bar scene for those who might be interested, but the space is large enough to accommodate both families, and us older folks so everyone feels comfortable.

This restaurant used to have pretty decent food, and was always a good option in the mall, but the last 3 times I’ve been there (this trip included the food and service were abysmal).

This trip I ordered the french onion soup which was completely flavorless it just tasted like hot water in a cup. We both got salads, neither were very good, mine was full of chewy/fatty chicken.

Our server never brought me any bread, waters were never refilled, and the soup was brought out sans spoon but the waitress didn’t come back to the table for about 15 mins after dropping off the soup. She then said “yeah you probably want a spoon”.

To top it off I used the bathroom on the way out and it was incredibly dirty.
