A book lover's trip to is simply not complete without a trip to The Strand. The store boasts 18 miles of new, used, and rare books, but it sure seems like more. Tables full of books greet you when you walk in. Towering stacks of books fill the rest of the store. And I do mean towering. Expect to use a ladder to reach the top shelves at least once.

Nice location. Bright and inviting with ample restrooms. There are books, free books you can borrow and like a good friend they don't judge you for being late, but they will charge you! Location is central and the staff was friendly

Atmosphere of the restaurant, very relaxing and elegant. Food was fabulous, every bite. Staff very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Nice touch the chef came out to say hallo and to thank us for coming. Also the owners spouse stopped by the table to say hallo and to make sure we were well taken care off. I give this place a 5 star rating. Will be going back again.

Went their for an anniversary dinner and they totally surprised us. Wait staff was on top of it by going beyond cordial. They gave excellent recommendations, service was fast and they even gave us personalized menus that we took with us to commemorate the evening. Enormous wine selection, wonderful display of food, and they even gave us samples of ceviche and dessert! We had the chicken and salmon, but of course had their famous pommes frites with truffle cream and fried chorizo stuffed gordal olives. We had the smores and cake but the presentation was a surprise. MK is now on my list for special occasions.

This is my favorite spot in downtown! Always a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is very elegant and the service is top notch! They always remember me when I come in to have dinner. The food here is fabulous, always changing and bringing in new ideas! You can't miss coming here at least once if visiting from out of town or making this a go to spot for weekly/monthly dinners!

There were three of us and we got there early and so sat in the bar area and had drinks served by very pleasant people. The hit was the "roundhouse kick". This isn't McDonald's, the food here is carefully prepared and the waits between courses were never tedious, perhaps it was the company. It is just on the edge of being crowded and little noisier than I would prefer. Now for the important part of this, the food. I'm new to the new American cuisine. Everything we had was beyond excellent. I have never eaten such satisfying food. We all tasted each others dishes and they were all stunning. The standout for me was my lobster and lobster roe/corn chowder. Could not ask for a better waiter. Of course at the end was the bill, not an insignificant sum; but this is more than just dining.

If you are looking for a low wait you should be looking elsewhere because reservations is really the only way to go to get in here in a timely manner. That should say one thing - great food! (Or slow service but in this case it's great food!) While I wouldn't say this is the most affordable spot for a bite to eat the prices are extremely fair for the quality you are getting as they could easily charge more for what they serve! (Seriously, if the owners are reading this I'm just kidding. Please don't raise your prices.) The staff was all extremely friendly, the presentation was top notch, and the flavors... Mouthwatering hardly seems to do it justice! Not only do they take care of you on a regular night but it feels that you get extra attention if it is for a special occasion (which seemed impossible after the amazing attention the first time I was there!) I highly recommend a visit here if you have a chance.
