Beautiful decor, excellent service & fantastic food. Special soups of the evening were potato leek & french onion. Both were superb. For our entrees we had the poached salmon & the duck. Salmon melted in your mouth. Duck served sliced & delicious. Nice bottle of French bordeaux & creme brulee topped off our evening. More

Have been coming to Aldo’s for years. Food was great, service was great. Salads should come with dinner. Cranberry juice for a kid shouldn’t cost $4.95. Pizza was flimsy and small and not worth the $16. And we were therefor a birthday. The restaurant should give the one dessert complimentary. Will continue to enjoy meals there— just won’t be often.

The waitress's apologizes still didn't quiet down the stomach growls we were experiencing from the long wait. More

Steaks are made to perfection, Best in the area. The Truffle Lobster Macaroni and Gruyere Cheese is amazing, enough to share. Baked Alaska is pure decadence. The cocktail jazz they play never rises above a murmur. We truly enjoyed our entire evening. More

This was our first visit to NanKing and we plan to return! We were greeted promptly and seated right away. We were there for the vegan buffet and were not disappointed. A gentleman showed us the appetizer tables and explained how to assemble the little puffs - I don’t remember what they are called, but they were delicious! We sampled nearly every item from the buffet and enjoyed seconds, and some thirds, of our favorites. The server was pleasant and attentive. A great dinner!! (Our only non-positive comment is related to the uncomfortably chilly seat - in a corner booth. Thankfully the food was warm. 🙂) More

American | Virginia Beach, Norfolk / Virginia Beach

The restaurant certainly didn't look anything like their website. Nothing like it. Luckily, they had Anthony Rosano and the Conqueroos which made up for the lack-luster of the bar. We expected more of a lounge... You know... Oyster Bar/Steak house kinda vibe... The cocktails were fabulous! Dirty Gin Martinis and Manhattens with the special touch. This also made up for the disappointment with the look/vibe of the bar and a great bartender. As far as Open Table, you never reported that our group dropped off from 10 people to 4 people. I later tried to change it from 4 to 2 but couldn't figure it out on my cell phone. We apologize for the miscommunication, but we did for sure send in the first changes. For that, Open Table gets 1 star. More

We were there on Christmas Eve. I had made a 5:30 reservation. We rode around looking at Christmas lights and arrived at the restaurant at 5:30. We were seated, served graciously, the manager offered to take a picture of us by the tree on the way out. When I got home I had a phone message from them that they were closing at 5. (Evidently Open Table did not have this information.) I think it was pretty great that they were so gracious and never mentioned that they were keeping the place open for us! We had a great time!
