Enter one of our neighborhood restaurants across the metro area and lift your mood no matter the day. Da Noi holds its diners close and keeps life simple. The dining room exemplifies these qualities; dark wood trim contrasts with creamy lemon walls and the open wine racks and cherry wood bar add warmth. Neighborhood sociability is one reason the night is as inviting as the day. The décor and art retain its inviting atmosphere throughout the evening, while the dedicated staff provides you with superb service to compliment the ultimate dining experience. <br /><br />

"The Street has brought lots of new diners and Del Frisco's is a good addition to what used to be a limited choice of restaurants, and somewhat stodgy at that! Del Frisco's is youthful and trendy in its food and drink options, making it a fun alternative. Not high-end cuisine but a tasty alternative for locals and those coming to the movie theater nearby."

Sycamore is a seasonally inspired, chef-owned neighborhood bistro in Newton Centre. Emphasizing locally sourced produce, fish and meat, our menu draws on classic European country food; rustic and wholesome. Our beverage program is designed to complement the cuisine. The wine list focuses on passionate small producers, our beers are by and large domestic craft selections and the cocktail list highlights classic drinks and sipping spirits.

"I chose Sycamore for our anniversary dinner based on great reviews and our hopes that Newton Center finally had a contemporary restaurant with an enthusiastic clientele. The menu is eclectic and interesting. We didn't love everything but had a nice evening and the place was full and lively. The problem came when we went to get our coats that had been taken at our table by the hostess and hung up. My husband's coat was gone! There was good follow-up initially by the manager who believed another diner would realize he had mistakenly taken the coat. When the coat was not returned, the restaurant stopped talking to us even though a response was promised (over two months have gone by). Not a great anniversary present...not at all the customer service story the restaurant should want publicized. But, instead of offering any offset to the loss of an expensive winter overcoat, we have no response, no coat and no plan to return."

Situated in the lobby of the historic Kendall Hotel, the Black Sheep Restaurant is dedicated to the building’s past as a Victorian firehouse and to fine dining in Cambridge, Mass. The firefighters of Engine 7 considered themselves the “black sheep” of the Cambridge Fire Department, and the Kendall honors their memory with our restaurant. The menu offers daily selections created by our chef using organic and locally grown produce. Our cozy dining room creates a welcoming atmosphere, with a menu offering both classic and innovative American home-style cooking. Our philosophy is simple: purchase the finest and freshest ingredients and let the food absorb them. We offer a full bar and specialize in a selection of locally brewed beers and selected wines from wineries around the United States.

"The setting is clubby old New York but the food is up to contemporary standards. Beautiful presentation and careful preparation are evident in what is offered on a nice mix of steaks and seafood choices, with good options for appetizers and salads. This is not a huge array but a well chosen one."

"When we come to Pasadena, having lived there when this restaurant was new but for many years living in Boston, we are always pleased to find Cafe Santorini has maintained its menu standards and its excellent service!"

"db never disappoints. This time we were returning after a fairly long time since the last visit. The food was still beautifully prepared, service excellent, wine options great and the folks who had gotten to know my husband during his frequent business trips made a point of saying hello. What's not to love about a great restaurant near Times Square where they know your name?"

"Harvest is my favorite spot for taking my staff out for a holiday or special occasion lunch. The choices available for the prix fixe lunch are varied enough for most everyone and the service is great for groups of 10-12."

A forum for Lincoln Center’s performing arts culture for nearly 30 years, Café Fiorello features a sprawling bar filled with more than 50 kinds of antipasti. Finished in warm wood, brass and mirrors, the main dining room suggests a timeless charm. In addition to the hot and cold antipasto specialties of vegetables and seafood, the menu features updated Italian classics and specialty dishes, as well as a selection of seafood, steak, veal & pasta.

"Café Fiorello has delivered a great experience for decades and its nice to "come home" to a restaurant with the warm Italian bustle and great food that lingers in memory. But this isn't a tired version of a formerly great restaurant; it really delivers what it is known for. That said, it is not going to compete with some of the newer, innovative options now available near Lincoln Center. But, isn't it nice to expect and receive exactly what you were anticipating?"

Faith & Flower is a contemporary Los Angeles restaurant located in the WaterMarke Tower in DTLA’s South Park district. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the two major renaissance periods—the 1920s and modern day—that have fundamentally shaped the Downtown Los Angeles community, with “Flower” referring to the street on which the restaurant lies today, and “Faith” for the street’s alleged name during the early 1920s.<br /><br />Executive Chef Michael Hung, formerly of San Francisco’s Michelin-starred La Folie, will oversee all culinary operations. Michael Lay (Restaurant 1833, Rose.Rabbit.Lie.) helms the bar program as Lead Mixologist, and Ben Spungin (Bernardus Lodge) serves as Executive Pastry Chef.<br /><br />

"This is the second restaurant to try this great location at 9th and Flower. Much about Faith & Flower looks promising. We tried it for lunch and loved the calamari in a gazpacho sauce as well as an interesting fennel-citrus salad. Somewhat disappointing was the pork sandwich. The pork was delicious, as was the bun (with pickled jalapenos & onions, lettuce) -- but the ratios were off. Too much bread for the amount of pork. Service was attentive and helpful with the menu. A few more substantial salads on the lunch menu would be welcome."
