Just came back from The Love feeling complete and undeniable LOVE to this place. AMBIANCE: a bit noisy but we still could hear each other and felt cozy and comfortable. SERVICE: was very friendly, attentive accommodating and professional from everybody we interacted with. FOOD: was amazingly tasty, very healthy way prepared, beautifully presented and very well portioned (meaning not too big portions but not too small to feel inadequate to the price either). Had: Carrot salad, Poke, Ravioly, Gnudi and Cheese boar for desert + 4 wonderful drinks. VALUE: was very good for the pleasure received. Very glad we've discovered this place and definitely will be back.

I have yet to be disappointed by a Stephen Starr restaurant, and this was no different. We made a reservation before an evening show and had the restaurant largely to ourselves because of the early hour. We had comfortable banquette seats and a charming waiter who knew his stuff. When dining in a new restaurant I appreciate confident opinions from a server and a Wade delivered. He recommended the mushroom soup and Parker House rolls without reservation, and for someone who doesn't eat mushrooms I had to take him up on it. I was not disappointed. My partner and I split a decadent brisket pappardelle pasta dish and the porkchop entree, perfect for two people. Carrot cake dessert Sunday and coffee hit the spot to finish. Would go again in a heartbeat.

Really friendly staff, Nicole was very accommodating, really great cocktails and food. They really nail everything both sweet and savory, the pancakes, biscuits, cinnamon roll, and the sandwiches are all very good. Highly recommend this place.
