It seemed more 'date appropriate" than for the friend meal I attended. The waitress, Christine, was very nice and helpful. The noisy bar area was full with happy hour folk. We sat back in a more enclosed space and that was nice. Servers were bumping into each other, as open space was tight. Scallops were big and good.

We had brunch here to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Lovely place - pleasant ambience and good food. Just one of those places that tries hard to get everything right and it shows. Definitely recommend!

Had a great experience here on a Saturday evening before play. Service was prompt, food was delicious, and closeness to the theaters is exceptional. Really enjoyed sitting upstairs in the Blushing Bar. Will for sure be back for happy hour or before our next show!

The salad I had was dynamite, maybe a little too small, but delicious. My friends ordered the open faced tuna and it was very big and really delicious.

This place is great. Great scene, busy, lively, great drinks, great food. The staff were so awesome. We were there for my birthday/Mardi Gras, and they hooked us up with the best table in the place for live music. Will definitely be back.

Service was impeccable! Our waiter George was attentive with great suggestions. Tuna tartar is amazing! Cauliflower, duck wings and katifi shrimp were good 8/10 but nothing I would want to return back for—the bar is gorgeous. If you’re around the area stop for cocktails and the tuna!

first time to Valerie for a post theatre dinner. Looked liek a place I would go for drinks after or before a show, so was pleasantly surprised that the food was good. Place was warm(!) and a little loud but we were sitting in the bar room-Would try again for sure for casual dinner!

Pre-dinner this place was awesome. It allowed me to change my reservation twice - changed it from 3-4 and then 4-5 (day of). However we were seated by a table of 15 that was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves talk and our waitress was non-existent. She never came back to check on us after taking our order; drinks were cleared after we finished our first rounds and had to ask three separate times for our waitress to order more drinks. Super frustrating.

The hostess was good enough to seat us an hour before our reservation because we were going to a show even though the place was packed for happy hour. We sat at the bar upstairs and got excellent service including a great explanation of the cocktails we were ordering. Cocktails were outstanding especially the hand-pickled onions in the Gibson. Excellent burger (and great menu recommendations). Will be back as often as possible.

Beautiful space, large but felt cozy. Only 2 single room bathrooms for the ladies that caused quite a wait. As one of my companions stated "don't give a lady their own bathroom, there isn't a sense of urgency, they fix their make-up, fluff their hair, take their sweet time" Got a laugh out of everyone waiting! Other than that the service was terrific - Brendan our waiter was very attentive & friendly - and the flatbread pizza, brussel sprouts & fries delicious. We will return!

Valerie exceeded our brunch expectations! The short rib hush and Korean chicken waffle were out of this world. Delicious mimosas and Bloody Mary's, great service and a really cozy atmosphere. We went with a group of six and were all really happy with our meals and the experience!
