"Every time I come to the area for business, I make sure to have at least one dinner at Chopps.
The soups and fish entries are amazing, and service has been consistently friendly and professional.
Two months ago and tonight the service was provided by Lisa. I'm happy to see that Chopps is able to keep
employees like her - makes all the difference when you have service at this high level. Thanks and I look forward
to my next visit.

"The food was well prepared and nicely presented.
The person who took the order and provided the service was clearly not interested in doing his work,
one of the worse service experiences we had in a restaurant >(

Cafe Tiramisu is an attractive, modest trattoria outfitted with stylized murals of Pompeii and other Roman ruins. Located in the heart of the financial district but you will feel like you are in Italy.<br /><br />

"Ordered the soup and the striped bass. Fish was a bit dry and the potatoes didn't taste too fresh either. Service was ok."
