Four stars for service, most definitely. Three stars for food-- but I probably just ordered the wrong thing. I was here a few months ago. The line at Audrey Claire was an hour and a half long, and my friends and I were roaming the neighborhood with many bottles of wine. D'angelo's was just down the street and the owner ushered us in, assuring us that we could drink our own wine even though it's not typically a BYO. Lovely. If I remember correctly, I was preparing for a big night of drinking and didn't want to get too full before partying. I ordered the caprese salad, which was mediocre. The mozzarella was nothing special and the tomatoes were not ripe or juicy. I also ordered the lentil soup which was perfectly seasoned and dressed with parmesan cheese. The bread at the table was wonderful, paired with an incredibly garlicky olive oil. The server was top-notch and opening every wine bottle as the previous one emptied. Recently I saw a "Hiring" sign in the window and went in to ask for details. I mentioned to the owner that I was there in September with friends; we had our wine and it was so nice that we were allowed to drink it there. He nodded and said he remembered we sat upstairs. I liked that. Who doesn't like to be remembered?

Rating based on high cost and low customer service. Bowling costs $13 per game plus $6 shoe rental. Used a LivingSocial deal voucher for 3 games plus one shoe rental for $20. Tried to use on last day before expiration and was told that there was a mistake and the vouchers I purchased expired the day before. Instead of honoring the date printed on my voucher, they offered to give me face value - one game and one shoe rental. Talk about bait and switch! The waitress did not come by until the last half of our third game and our lane broke down for 10 minutes without someone coming by. They did eventually let us play the other two games as we were getting ready to leave, but only, I suspect, when it became apparent that they weren't fully booked and it wouldn't cost them anything to let us stay. Frankly, when it comes to bowling, it doesn't need to be fancy. Give me a ball, some pins, and a nice lane and we're in business. Maybe nachos, pizza and french fries. At Bowlmor, you have cornflake encrusted fried grapes and tater tots with bacon ketchup.

walked over to the piano bar with a group of co-workers last friday. we were surprised to find that it was empty minus a woman at the bar sipping her cocktail (but then again, it was 4 in the afternoon). we grabbed our drinks (no happy hour) and went to sit outside on the patio where we had to keep swarming off flies.. after listening to a mix of doo-wop and 80's tunes, well, i left early. don't think i'll be frequenting this place too much. but the karaoke sounds interesting!
