It was our anniversary and we thought about trying out a new restaurant and changed our minds. We know we are guaranteed a great meal no matter what we choose to order. The service is always good. It was busy at 4:30 in the afternoon. The music was a little loud and upon request lowered it. This is our favorite restaurant!

Babo is among my favorite places to dine! The food is always very good and the service is excellent. Our server today was exceptional; attentive, helpful, and genuinely friendly. I invited a friend for her first experience and she thoroughly enjoyed it and plans to return!

Celebrating hubby’s birthday. Tomothius(sp)? was our server. He was very kind and patient with our long deliberating over the menu. He was efficient and kept checking on us at appropriate times. The food was delicious, however servings seemed small for the price. Pianist was good, played a couple of requests. We will eat there again.
