      I must say that although the restaurant space is absolutely beautiful, and the view is spectacular- the food was very disappointing for the price! The waiter seemed very pretentious at first especially when we told him we would like

      I've gone during Sips when they are crowded and overwhelmed and hated it. They don't seem to have a decent plan in place to handle the volume other than pre-mixing their sangria, which is really just a cheap wine topped off with some

      Pros: pleasant atmosphere

      Ok so basically my review doesn't pertain to their dinner and lunch because I've had both many times and it has been great. My review is in regards to the people who run "sips" on Wednesday evenings. Last night I was completely outraged by the arrogance and non professionalism that their staff displayed. The situation is this. My friends and I were sitting at a table getting drinks when an appetizer of sliders were brought to our table. None of us ordered them but they were brought to our table and sat there for about 10-15 mins and no one had claimed them. At that point, two people who I was with ate the 2 lonely sliders that had no been claimed. With that, the waitress ran over and asks where the sliders went and states that those were not ours and we need to pay for them in a really bitchy tone(ok its a sips menu so these sliders were only 5 dollars, is it really necessary to make such a big deal?) We all agree ok sure we'll pay for the sliders eventhough it was your mistake and the couple you brought them for skipped out on their check and didn't pay for them. She then within a few minutes brings us out a check just for the sliders alone and for the next 20 mins comes back to our table numerous times trying to get the money for the 5 dollar stupid sliders!!!!!!! This waitress mind you is being completely rude and ignorant to us (she is some ugly brunette girl who is pretty overweight, just to clarify so you know who I'm talking about if you go there, beware) and with that I decide to go up to the bar and try and speak with someone to try and rationalize the situation. At that point, this young girl who is probably not even 21, dressed in some cheap H&M suit walks over and says that the 3 people who work for her say that I am lying and that we had stolen other peoples food and that we need to pay for it. I'm sorry but anyone who has worked in the food buisness knows that when a customer complains, you do something to rectify it, not send out some unintelligent child to turn away more guests. I am so disgusted with this restaurant, I will never step foot in there again. Just a warning!

      Went there last New Year's Eve, which was VERY pricy. Made reservations, there were empty tables, and my party of 4 was seated NEXT to the elevator. With people coming and going constantly. It was a prix fixe buffet and quite frankly was terrible. Some of the entrees had run out. The service wasn't great, the food wasn't great, it was not fun at all. I would never go back there. The architecture clashed with the decorative slabs of marble. I could cry when I remember the beautiful Barrymore Room and what has become of it.

      XIX is absolutely gorgeous!! The architecture in this place is incredible. High sweeping ceilings with the most incredible details. The atmosphere is what makes this restaurant. Service is very good. Food is majority seafood. Expensive but there is a lot of different dining options. Their wine list is very extensive.
