The hand drawn noodles from here are my obsession. This place is absolutely legit. So freaking good..Egg noodles, beef brisket, sour fermented veggies,touch of sriracha...with a fried egg. The service is fast. The price is cheap. I rest my case.

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.

The food is delicious, but the interior is not so good, in my opinion. The steak is great!

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.

Pretty solid for a nice dinner out. I wouldn't consider this place a must-try, but definitely one to put on the list for a fancy night out. Go for the seafood - definitely seems to be the thing that most people tend to talk about.

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!

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

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.
