"Had a business breakfast here during one of Boston's nasty snowstorms.
The room was quiet and tables were far enough apart from each other to be able to conduct business.
The menu is straight, traditional American and the prices are fair given the upscale surroundings. Though it wasn't on the menu, the chef made me a smoked salmon omelet. Just fabulous.
I'll be back."

Modern, inviting, stylish and fun, Del Frisco's Grille takes the classic bar and grill to new heights, drawing inspiration from bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients. The energetic bar, a destination in itself, creates a buzz throughout the restaurant and sets the stage for an amazing night out.

"Del Frisco's more casual and hipper younger brother. Well-prepared drinks, excellent wine selection, great menu. Everything we ordered was well-prepared. Professional and friendly service.
Specifically: Deviled eggs, meaballs, truffled fries for appetizers. Steaks, sole, ahi tuna for entrees. All superb.
We'll be back."

The legendary restaurant is for the food and wine aficionado. Blending contemporary American cuisine with one of the best wine selections anywhere, the Palace Arms consistently rates among the finest restaurants in Denver. Signature items such as a caesar salad prepared table side, seared steak of Colorado bison, combined with many other creative contemporary or traditional dishes. The "New" Palace Arms provides a casual dress code where jackets are not required.

"Great traditional restaurant. The tableside Caesar salad preparation is very old school and expertly executed.
Fabulous Tournedos Rossini. Also old school.
World class wine list. Prices range from reasonable to breathtaking. Sommelier is helpful.
Great cocktails.
Very expensive but worth it.
We'll be back."

Blue Stove is a stylish yet casual restaurant featuring our interpretation of contemporary flavors focusing on bold tastes and textures. The menu allows our customer the chance to experience our offerings through a variety of small plates that are bold in concept and internationally inspired. We invite our customers to select combinations of menu items with the goal of sharing each dish, making a dining experience unlike any other. The exhibition kitchen provides a stage for our chefs to prepare the menu in a colorful, energetic environment. The wine bar romances wine while providing an alternative dining experience. Our cuisine is inspired by local ingredients at the peak of seasonal freshness. The menu is complemented by a well chosen selection of interesting wines, many available by the glass to pair.

"This is a tapas-style restaurant in Nordstrom's, Burlington Mall.
Excellent imaginative food. Great wines by the glass. Enjoyed their fresh take on chopped salad, fried calamari, and cherry-glazed beef. Outstanding chocolate cake. Very rich coffee served in a French press. Best coffee of any restaurant in recent memory, in fact.
Very good service, but room is somewhat understaffed. Room has pleasant atmosphere especially given that it's right off the Nordstrom sales floor.
We come here often and will be back."

"We had been to the Columbus Circle branch of A Voce a number of times. This was our first visit to the original A Voce on Madison Square Park.
Everything was just great. Warm reception, professional and gracious service, well prepared cocktails, impressive wine list. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Of special note was the house-made fettuccine. Served with white truffles grated over the pasta at table side. Not just the pasta, but everything was memorable. We'll be back."
