They did our wedding last year and the flowers were very nice. My husband & I were impressed with my bouquet and the bridesmaids flowers and the table centerpieces. The flowers stayed throughout the night and my bouquet was still around for a few more days until we left for the honeymoon. They did a great job, came on time to give us & the hall the flowers and we were very happy with them.
Great jewelry and amazing prices! My mom & I have been using this place for as long as I can remember (although they use to be located elsewhere on SI). The husband and wife who own this booth located with a few other booths in the store are great. They are so friendly, nice & helpful. If they don't have something, they can either get it for you from books that they have or have it custom made. This is what my husband did for my engagement ring. He had them custom make it and I love it so much! We even got my wedding band their as well. I am so happy with both and with all of the jewelry that I have bought or received over the years from them. I highly recommend checking them out!
Since moving to this side of the island I needed a new dry cleaner. I found this one while shopping since it is in a strip mall with so many other stores & restaurants. They do a great job, quick service, reasonably priced and they are so nice every time I come in. The orders are all electronic which I think is so much better than the paper system that some still use. I've brought in shirts, suits and dresses and they've all came out so nice. I would recommend using them if you live in the area.
My family and I have been using Dr. Helfand since we moved out to Staten Island 25 years ago. He is such a sweet, nice man and since we've been going for so long I feel like he is an old family friend talking about our families, work, etc when we go get our eyes checked. Not to mention that he does a very thorough job with checking your eye sight and signs for anything such as glaucoma or such with all the technology that he has. His staff is wonderful and very helpful in picking out frames in their pretty extensive selection. He also takes a lot of insurance carriers (I would just call to find out if he takes yours). You won't go wrong using him and you get such more personal service & takes the time to care as oppose to going to a chain eye doctor.
PROS: Personal good service
After a horrible experience somewhere else I was a little leery going to another nail salon. However they did a wonderful job. I wanted my nails to look nice for a wedding and they did look great after going here! I had tips applied and just polished. I have been going back to them ever since. The guy in the back on the right is the one I use (the one on the left next to him isn't as good). I would recommend using them and the lot is pretty big so there is never a problem getting a spot.
I live fairly close so I figured this would be a great place to get my nails done and I wouldn't have to take my car since it is in such a small parking lot. I had them put on tips since I was going to a wedding. The girl I had did such a horrible job! The glue was sticking all over my cuticles and underneath the nail. I didn't even want to go back to have them re-do my nails so I went somewhere else. I would NOT recommend using them.
CONS: Horrible work, small lot
This zoo is good for younger children but adults can enjoy it as well. There is a part where you can feed the animals and pet them which the kids love. The reptile exibit is nice and has a lot of different species of fish, snakes, etc. The zoo is small but everything is close together so there isn't much walking which is good on the kids as they would get too tired if everything was spaced out. Ample parking in the lot across the street and not expensive to enter. On a nice day it is a fun trip for everyone.
I can say that all of our stuff is in our new home mostly all okay. They taped one of our dressers which when we pealed the tape off took some of the paint with it, I'm so glad that we hadn't received our new set yet and this one was going into the spare bedroom. They made a HUGE gash in the drop ceiling going up the stairs. Now I know when movers come they make the normal marks and such but this was NOT a little normal dent, they left other big gashes as well leading down to the family room. I can't say much about the workers either, very unprofessional. Hey but you get what you pay for and we didn't pay much so that was why I can't complain too much. Next time we ever move we will not be using them and will try to find better, professional movers.
CONS: Everything else....
I started coming here since my old favorite restaurant closed down and I'm glad it did since this one exceeds all others. The food is amazing and I am very picky when it comes to good italian food. They have a wide selection to choose from. The place is a drop small but they take reservations so there is never a wait. They serve a huge salad with every meal (for us it's family style since we've always gone with 4 people but I believe if you go with 2 its served individually). Try the hot antipasto as I like it a lot (stuffed clams, mussels, mushrooms, artichokes, red peppers, mozzarella - most in red sauce). I can't comment on the desserts as I'm not a sweets person but every entree was excellent. The service is also very good, very attentive and friendly.
I've seen them rent out to parties in the front room by the bar but it's not private.
Go check them out, you won't be disappointed!
