Was here for my husband's company party, and i must say I was impressed with the ambience, and how they melded christmas decor into the whole thing... the upside down xmas tree by the mini-pond that had hammocks and pillows over them was a nice touch. I thought the servers were a bit curt, and ive read that even the bartenders were jerks. but the big security dude standing by the smoking lounge was nice, was not snobby at all. oh and free valet! (but maybe the company paid for that too) food was just ok, choco mousse was great = 3 stars service = 2.5 stars ambience, bathroom = 5 technically a 3.5, but not sure if ill ever want to come back. sure maybe, why not.

When I hear the name 'Bruno', I think of a big burly guy in a silk shirt and flashy jewelry who comes and visits when you forget to pay your gambling debts. It's really unfair of me and I'm sure the world is full of Brunos who are florists and general practitioners and bakers and other nice people. But I think the Bruno we're talking about here is a lot more like the first kind of Bruno. Would a kind, unassuming Bruno run a loud bar that charges a $10 cover for no particular reason in addition to expensive drinks? Would he be bold enough to install tiger striped carpet and stripper poles in one of the private lounges? Would he turn the music up to 11 downstairs, making conversation nearly impossible? No, we can safely assume that this Bruno has a large platinum pinky ring and can put away two or three cheesesteaks in a single sitting. Not a bad place for a private event if you've got a lot of serious drinkers for friends, but it's not my scene in general. Just don't tell Bruno I said that.
