Reviewed By Hereitis - New Jersey

Went there today for lunch. My wife had the same dish as last week, our first time there. Chicken Fajitas with corn tortillas, she informed them she is a Celiac as well last week. Well the waiter even wrote on the slip corn tortillas and as she was told they were fine. After eating one she questioned the Waiter who said your right, sorry. I went and spoke to the manager who was very much a punk who says yeah my fault we don't really have much if any Gluten free. Then another manager comes to the table and tells my wife the chicken is not good either. Wait a minute what changed from last week? Bottom line real screwed up unprofessional management. Oh paid the whole bill. Kick myself because I should of made a point because my suffers because a punk did not care. Real class act.

Waiting Room

Reviewed By M21Falcon - Mineola, New York

I ran a Google search to find a place to eat during a ride and the Waiting Room was rated high on the list in the area.

I've been to the Waiting Room once before and didn't realize it until getting there. I remember vaguely that I liked the place but nothing stood out about my first visit. I can tell you that I will remember how good the wings were and also the fried fillet I ordered.

The place was empty at first and that had me a little worried but the staff was welcoming and took care of us right away. After some time a large group entered, they seemed to be on a bar crawl so they started to pack the place up. The staff didn't seem overwhelmed and they didn't forget or ignore our table.

Good experience and I do see myself going back again.

We arrived about half hour before closing as we arrived from an overseas flight. They were happy to accomodate us and provided quick service. The food was good as was the service. They still wanted to close on time but we didn't feel rushed.

I had first come here for a NACE event, and finally brought my wife here for dinner. It feels less like a restaurant, and more like a private club. The whiskey and bourbon list is expensive. We had the Charcuterie platter and Risotto balls to start, both were great. Then we shared the Tiger Prawns, which are delicious and huge!

My wife had a nice glass of wine, and I had a great Blanton's Bourbon. Our waiter was knowledgable and attentive, but gave us our space to have a nice, quiet dinner.

We love stopping here for Ice Cream during the Summer but don't think of them in the Winter assuming they're closed.
We driving by today we saw that they don't close down seasonally.
What was even better they were having a Buy One Sundae and get the second one free, what a deal.
The Sundae sizes are generous for the price.
So there we were enjoying Ice Cream in the Winter, it really good.

Liked the food and the variety, but boy was it loud. We didn't help this in that we were a table of 10 letting off steam after a conference. One of many in the restaurant that night. And many nights probably, since the Renaissance is right next door and is always having conferences.

I ate here while shopping. There were several other shoppers doing the same thing, and we all commented on the high food quality. I had food from the Asian section, and the sushi was fresh and first-rate. Can't wait to go back here. Restaurant qualify food at a fraction of the price.

Food was good, staff was excellent. Only downside, we went on a Friday night when they have live music (piano / sax). While the music was good, it was just a little too loud to where we had trouble having a conversation at our table.
