C'mon, where else do you get a live pianist on a grand piano as you enjoy a full bar and good restaurant fare with a definite New York deli angle? GooglePlace - June 2017

This place reads like a super old diner, and the portions are ginormous! So come with an appetite. The service can be a little slow sometimes, because whoever runs this spot is bad at scheduling (or maybe they don't have enough employees?), but I do like the food. Come for the reubens, stay for the pie. And their massive selection of crafted mustards. GooglePlace - May 2017

The atmosphere was welcoming and elegant. I recieved good, kind, and attentive customer service. The only thing i can say is that their spice pallette was bland and lacking. All 3 dishes served to my table were underwhelming and under-flavored. Otherwise this is a good place for people with sensative or very few taste buds. GooglePlace - April 2017

Have not had 1 good experience here, went here when I first moved to the area had pretty crummy food and on top of it the woman that handles the take out orders changes the tip! I complained to management they called me a liar, I came back recently after not being here for a year and a half, same woman and same outcome. I have the copy of my receipt with the accurate amount and have compared to the charged amount on my credit card. Reached out to the manager again, it will be interesting to see if he resolves on his own or if I have to dispute the charge. Warning, they will steal from you!! GooglePlace - February 2017

Convenient tasty (but not gourmet) food close to Davies Symphony Hall and the Opera. I had the latkes which comes with a very small container of sour cream and applesauce.... which was mostly sour cream. Better would be a small container of each. Son had corned beef sandwich which was generous and tasty. His friend ordered Caesar Salad and I really like that they asked if he wanted anchovies or not. We lingered and they didn't bother us. We ate around 4 pm and they seemed to be a little short handed, perhaps some of the wait staff were on break. Took a long time for our drinks to come but food came promptly. Solid 4 stars.
