Went for a ladies night, had a wonderful time. Food and drinks were delicious but most importantly, the service from Lori was impeccable. She was the best server we’ve ever had, and our group dines out a lot. She was attentive, informative when the sushi kitchen was starting to get backed up (so we could make sure we got our order in), and she didn’t rush us out. The renovations look great and we will definitely be back.

The table is very small. You could barely fit an appetizer and two plates on it. Other than that, it was very good.

Best vodka sauce I’ve had! Was a typical bar atmosphere but enjoyable! Menu a bit pricey for just a casual meal but for a special meal out was more than acceptable. Could have used some bread on table while waiting for entree, though. Service was quick and pleasant. Overall, a very good dining experience!

A big place with loads of room for tables and booths. We had a great enclosed booth off to the side which blocked out much of the noise so we could carry on a normal conversation. Good choice of food too.

Food was good, service started out very well, but declined as the meal progressed. We had difficulty getting our server, Carolyn, to bring refills or another round of drinks. We got the impression we were being rushed out, since we were not offered coffee and were given a short time to review the dessert menu. Carolyn gave us a hard time when my friend's card would not go through, and did not give her a chance to contact the card issuer to solve the problem. Carolyn directed her to go get cash from the ATM. While my card was being run, and my companion was at the ATM, the hostess tried to get me to leave the table so they could seat another party. I explained we would leave as soon as I got my credit card back, which we did. Like I said, food was good, service left something to be desired. This was my first visit to The Office, and it was my birthday. I'm not sure I'll be back.

I had the prime rib and it was very good. My husband had the veal Oscar. The veal was tender however they left the fibrous ends on the asparagus. Other than that it was very good. The interior was choppy and just okay. I would go back again anyway as the food was good and the service was pleasant.

Our server never brought the soup for one of us. She checked on us only once during dinner. We had to flag her down for drink refills.

I booked a large group for this reservation. Our waitress was ON POINT. We ordered a lot of food and drinks. She got it all right. Thanks for a great experience. I wish I remembered her name - she was really good. Often a table with that many people ends up with wrong Items or just lack of service - that was not the case

Food &service were Very good . Only problem was the AC was leaking from the ceiling & a large puddle of water was on the chair at the table we were shown to. Luckily we noticed it before we sat down &were shown to another table.

We love the feel of the Office Lounge. The long time staff is amazing. The Manhattan Clam Chowder is our favorite soup. There is a good variety of food to choose from on the menu. It’s a great place to go with family, friends or a couple on a date.
