"Throw out all your notions about hotel restaurants. This meal was exceptional! I had the evening's special, which was a grilled halibut, over farro. Haven't had fish that good in a long time. Beautiful restaurant with amazing views and great service. But, to me, the food is the main reason to eat here."

Thai Select seeks to thrill the New York epicure with Thai that's global, fresh and fun. Located in the midtown-west area of Manhattan, Thai Select offers healthy, modern Thai cuisine with worldly flare. Although the signature taste remains authentic Thai in flavor, the presentation might be a bit French in aesthetics, a bit Italian in portion and a bit Japanese in simplicity. With dishes like Kee Mao Fettuccini (made with whole wheat pasta) and Fruit Fried Rice (stir-fried with seasonal fruits), Thai Crabcake (encrusted to perfection) and Coconut Puff Martini (jumbo shrimp hand-battered in coconut strips), the kitchen selects only the very best dishes in Thai cuisine and only the freshest of ingredients picked from the farmer's market for our patrons; hence the name, Thai Select.

"The food was typical Thai fare. It was fine, but nothing special.I had the yellow chicken curry. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing great. The service was disorganized. I had several servers, none of whom seemed to know what I had ordered.Too many good restaurants in NYC to go back to this one."

"I try to have dinner at 89 Fish and Grill almost every time I visit Columbus, because I know I can count on an excellent meal and excellent service. This most recent was no exception. The Arctic Char was outstanding, as was the Pear Salad. Keep it up, and I'll be back!"

Wolf's Ridge Brewing is a family owned and operated craft brewery and restaurant, created as a result of our long and deepening love for both craft beer and food. Wolf's Ridge Brewing was born through the deep desire of the owners to create a gathering space for other craft beer and food lovers in the downtown Columbus community. Our goal is to build a microbrewery and restaurant that becomes a proud member of the community, where we provide our patrons with a wonderful dining and drinking experience.<br /><br />The concept is centered on the idea that by focusing on craft and locally sourced products as much as possible, we are staying true to our primary goal of supporting and emulating the community in which we reside.

"The food I had was excellent! Wish I could say the same for the service. I got the distinct impression that, as a lone diner, I wasn't particularly welcome. This place obviously caters to large (loud) parties, and seems to resent someone dining alone taking up an entire table for 2. The waitress brought me this wonderful food, and barely said a word. Not that I could have heard her if she had. The decibel level was in the stratosphere."

Stokes is a locally owned restaurant that features: Steaks and beef from Nebraska, fresh seafood, and daily specials, all with an imaginative southwestern touch. Stokes also features beer crafted in Nebraska and an award winning wine list with over 40 wines offered by the glass. Bottles of wine on the non-reserve list are featured as half priced on Tuesday evenings and Friday and Saturday evenings after 9:00 p.m. If you are looking for an interesting cocktail such as a bourbon drink served in a whiskey flask, a Moscow mule in a copper cup, or a great mojito, margarita, or sangria we"ve got that covered as well. The restaurant features one of the best patios in the Old Market on 12th Street and has expanded to include patio seating on Howard Street. The expansion also means a premier banquet area in the Old Market complete with audio visual equipment and creative menu option packages. Stokes also offers a wide array of off premise catering for any occasion or group.

"Who knew there was such a great sushi place in Omaha? Great beef I would expect - but great sushi was a surprise. Everything was wonderfully fresh and well presented. I'll be going back on my next trip to Omaha."

"Really enjoyed my meal at Single Barrel. The steak was one of the best I've ever had (not surprising in Nebraska), and the handcut fries - the best I've had this side of the U.K. The bourbon selection was outstanding. The service was very friendly. Not stuffy. Just what I was looking for. Single Barrel hit the spot."

You'll be tempted by the tapas at this Streeterville eatery, from the team behind Emilio's (other location include Hillside). Its name means sun and snow, and the Spanish specialist serves a wide range of hot and cold choices, including grilled shrimp with garlic lemon butter sauce, baked goat cheese in tomato sauce, paella, among other fabulous tapas. The wine list features more than 60 choices, many available by the glass. The restaurant features colorful murals, tile mosaics and iron light fixtures. During summer time its patio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy great tapas and sangria.

"Really enjoyed my meal at Emilio's. The food was excellent. Just what I think tapas should be. Small portions, reasonably priced, and with lots of variety. My server was a real professional. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the area."
