Had dinner reservations here for an early Valentine's Day dinner celebration. Our waiter Franklin was impeccable with his service and making sure we had everything we needed during our dinner (we hope our tip reflected our happiness with him!). Best lobster bisque we ever had...creamy with large chunks of lobster in it. The Filet Mignon, Tenderloin, Lobster tails and South African Lobster Tail was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Not lost were the sides too...probably the best Au Gratin potatoes I've ever had. Dessert was fantastic too which we weren't able to finish due to being so stuffed from everything we had prior. Can't comment on the wine selection as we didn't order drinks but it looks like they had a nice wine collection.

While this meal was more on the pricey side of what we normally spend when we go out, I knew what the prices were going to be before hand and I thought everything we had was reasonably priced for what we got.

Seafood Gourmet

Reviewed By mzhappyhr - New York City, New York

I either order for take out or dine in if its a weekday lunch because its less crowded. There are maybe 30 seats on the side to dine in so very small. My favorite dinner is the penne vodka with shrimp & scallops. You cant go wrong with anything, oh and like most local spots its BYOB.

A Taste of Greece

Reviewed By Elaina S - New York

This was my third time dining at TOG. This visit I dined with 7 friends for a birthday dinner and we got to try a bunch of things. We actually ordered way too much food! We had two orders of the meatballs which were very tasty, but a little too greasy for me. We also had two orders of pan fried eggplant which I would go so far to say is the best eggplant I have ever had! We ordered zucchini cakes as well which were also quite yummy. The appetizers are a nice portion size so next time we would only need one eggplant, and one meatball. There were leftovers to take home. I tried a lemon chicken soup which was also tasty, but I was hoping for lentil instead. We ordered a Greek salad and a horitaki salad both which very good, but we definitely didn't need them amongst our 5 plates of appetizers. For dinner were were all so full, but everyone enjoyed gyros (most were packed to go after a few bites) and I had a lamb shish platter. The lamb wasn't as good as the previous time I ordered it. This time it was slightly more overcooked than I would like, but still enjoyable. I highly recommend giving this place a try! Everything is good, fresh, and flavorful!

Really loved the food. Atmosphere good , a little crowded and loud but the seafood was excellent. Very creative, everything perfectly done. Those who had the non seafood options were pleased as well. Decent wine list. Price reasonable for quality. Will definitely be back when in the area!

Reviewed By Nicole R - East Lansing, Michigan

This is a destination restaurant - if you let it be. Order the exciting items, not old mainstays and you'll be impressed. The service is very polished and they pay a lot of attention to your overall experience. Sit in the bar room if you can. Reservations strongly recommended. Swordfish is amazing.

Casual Habana Cafe

Reviewed By Douglas F - Garfield, New Jersey

If Cuban food is your thing then this is the place. All of the typical dishes are here and they're cooked to perfection. The Ropa Vieja is top on the list followed by the churrasco. Great home made empanadas with several typical of fillings. It's a bring your own bottle and the sangria is definitely worth an order. Prepare for a nice night out but make a reservation especially on the weekends because this place fills up quickly.

Probably eat in Amarone once or twice a month. Very consistent service, excellent menu and accommodating hosts (Nick and Nick). Kind of quiet, but nothing wrong with that.

LongHorn Steakhouse

Reviewed By R B

We ate here for Father's Day and enjoyed our server and food. Our complaint was there was no air conditioning and it was hot. We were told it hasn't been working for a few summers. People, including wait staff, were fanning themselves to try cool off. I have asthma and the heat made it harder to breathe. No one in my family enjoyed themselves with sweat running down our faces.

El CID Restaurant

Reviewed By jacers1 - new jersey

Came to this restaurant on a Monday night based on reviews from friends and on TripAdvisor.
Very disappointed. Very expensive for mediocre food. Also, seems they are in a rush to serve you your meals and to clean the table.
No ambiance either.
Will not be going back here again.

Gotham City Diner

previously called Gogtham City Grill

Reviewed By Al154 - Phoenix, Arizona

The Gotham City Diner looks more like a restaurant than a classic diner in my opinion but that does not detract from the food and the attraction. I stopped in for lunch with a friend and it was quite crowded on a November Saturday. There is a lot of parking space but it was still hard to find a spot which says something about the popularity of this establishment. The interior decor has a New York theme to accentuate the diner concept. We were seated quickly at a corner table and ordered a short time later. There were lots of choices on the menu so I had a BLT and my friend ordered a chicken salad. The BLT came with a huge dill pickle and a side of coleslaw. It all tasted great and the service was quick in spite of the large crowd. Two thumbs up!
