"I really can't say anything bad about my experience other than I wish I had eaten more! Fantastic wine list, and amazing food. The portion sizes are definitely set up to require a few appetizers before, but that's not a problem as they are reasonably priced and delicious! The garlic bread, oh my god, the friggin garlic bread. Excellent service was the cherry on top. 100% will return."

"Very poor serice. We constantly had to track down our server for drinks and to order our entree after the apps arrived.
With the plethora of other options suggest going there versus dining or drinking at this place."

"The menu is quite limited, but we were very pleased with our selections. The tomato caprese salad was excellent, but almost too small to share. The gnocchi bolognese was perhaps one of the best gnocchi dishes I have tasted.
We were quite disappointed with the ambiance. The photos on the website are accurate, but they do not convey the noise that is generated by the 70s rock music and louder conversation resulting from the sound level of the music. When we arrived and heard the noise level, we almost left because we were expecting a quieter and more romantic atmosphere. Fortunately we stayed and enjoyed very good food and some excellent 70s rock music that brought back fun memories.
A final note: Although we did not have a dessert, the choices on the dessert cart looked scrumptious. The dessert cart presentation is very well done."

"Pasta with shrimp was crazy salty, although perfectly al dente. Pizza Margherita was bread with sauce and lackluster. Tuna carpaccio with pretty good but slightly gelatinous. All in all, $45 for an app, a "pizza" and one shared pasta left us wondering if this is really a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant. We have been fans of this group since RJ Grunts days, but they really came up short this time."
