We went here before going to the theatre. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. My boyfriend ordered the portabella appetizer (yummy!) and I had the fire roasted artichoke (divine!). For entrees,... (more)

It started with waiting 20 minutes at our table, but finally the hostess flagged down a waiter to at least get a drink order. The portabello mushroom appetizer was burnt, and you could taste the grill. The chicken... (more)
