Always a great experience at 618. Amazing staff and the food is fantastic as usual. Eddie took great care of us with drinks. He recommended some new bourbons that I hadn’t tried before. We will be back very soon!

Great meal at The Grand , as always. We shared the gem lettuce salad to start. We both felt this was one of the best salads we have had. Nice crunch from pistachios and bread crumbs; delicious dressing and ample blue cheese. We both had burgers which are always delicious and cooked to our desired temperature. One of our favorite places.

My wife got the wasabi tuna. She said the tuna was one of the best tuna's she ever had. I got the angry lobster. It was delicious' but to messy and hard to eat in a restaurant.

About the restaurant
Brando's was founded on the premise of great food made from quality ingredients, excellent service, and a warm atmosphere which we believe are the three elements of any enjoyable dining experience.

The chef/owner, Steven Botta, grew up in Brooklyn and learned many of recipes used at Brando's from his mother. Raised in this welcoming tradition, he believes when you enter Brando's, whether its your first time or your one hundredth time, you should always feel like they are dining with family.

Soulful Italian is the best way to describe our menu. Our culinary team has been trained at the finest culinary schools, and has over fifty years of combined experience. From our fresh pasta, to our line-caught fish, to our thirty-five day dry-aged steaks, the difference is discernible

We are frequent diners at this superb white tablecloth restaurant. Why? The food is consistently flavorful and delicious, so we are never disappointed. Our favorites are seafood, which is prepared with wonderful spices and complementary sauces. What makes Il Colosseo stand out from other establishments is the fastidious service. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Everyone is so well-trained it is like watching a ballet ( don’t laugh!) as the servers and their assistants communicate and operate to clear and setup tables to quickly make them ready for the next customers.
