I've been going to Ala Moana Nails for about 4 years now. I had been going to a pricey spa for my manicures and pedicures. A friend recommended Ala Moana Nails and I was sold on them after the first time. I have acrylic nails. Their fills are better and cost less than the pricey spa. Their pedicures are good and much more reasonably priced than any I've received at a spa. It's very convenient. Their hours are the same as the mall hours and they have 2 locations within Southdale. They take walk-ins, but I usually call for an appointment. I can normally get in the same day I call. I love that it doesn't smell like a nail salon inside. The owner is great!!! They don't take checks, so bring cash or a credit card. Also, if you get your manicure and pedicure together, you'll receive a discount.
PROS: Very Good Work, Convenient, Well-Priced
Woodys is an awesome restaurant. Their menu includes several appetizer choices. They have a great selection of entree salads (it's hard to choose because they are all so good). They have pastas, delicious brick oven pizzas, wonderful steaks and fish and seafood choices. They have a full bar. Their children's menu is one of the best that I've seen. If you like weekend brunches theirs is one of the best. The service is top-notch. They have outdoor dining during the warmer months. The restaurant has a nice ambiance with a fireplace and comfortable tables and booths. It's so good that we dine their quite frequently.
PROS: Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere
This is a one man show and he is great!!! We have owned older homes with old plumbing and consequently we've required the services of a plumber quite often. We have been using Doug's Plumbing for over 12 years. His work is superior. His pricing is very reasonable. He's dependable and trustworthy. He cleans up after his work. We think so much of him that when we've needed other work done on our home we've called him for recommendations. If you need a plumber, I would definately recommend Doug's Plumbing.
PROS: Superior Work, Dependable, Trustworthy, Reasonable Pricing
If you want pictures that you will enjoy for a life time go to Kid Capers. They will capture the true essence of any member of your family. Being photographed at Kid Capers is so much fun that our children ask to have their photographs taken at Kid Capers. But they aren't only for kids, we have some great family pictures that they took also. They do beautiful black and whites, sepia toned and hand painted photographs. The only problem that you'll have is that when you look at the proofs you will want to buy every one of them (what a wonderful problem). Our home is filled with photographs that Kid Capers took of our children. And they are more than photographs, they are truly works of art. Every penny that we spent at Kid Capers was well worth it!
PROS: Incredible photos, lots of fun, memories to last a life time
We joined Flagship about 18 years ago when it first opened. We were members for many years. We enjoyed the workout facilities, as well as the dining facilities and social activities. Then we dropped out for awhile because we moved and it was no longer convenient to our home. A couple of years ago we rejoined and we were very disenchanted with how it had gone down hill. The locker rooms weren't kept up and there were times when the outdoor pool was so dirty we wouldn't go in it. And when the pool was clean it was always so crowded you couldn't get near it or even find a seat close enough to remotely watch your children. The restaurant was gone and replaced with a snack bar that didn't even offer many healthy choices. For the price we were paying we expected a lot more (or at least for it to be how it was when we left it). I wouldn't recommend Flagship to anyone looking for a health club.
Natures Harvest did all of the flowers for our wedding. They do absolutely incredible work!!! We told them what we didn't want and they did the rest. Words can't even describe the beauty of their work. We were so impressed by what they did for our wedding that we used them a few years later when we had several very specialized dried arrangements made for our home. They are an awesome special occasion florist, but you'll still want to use them for all of your floral needs.
This is by far the best construction company out there. They literally remodeled our house for us while we were out of town. At the time of our project my husband and I both traveled extensively for work so we weren't available to "babysit" our remodel. There was no need to with Sheps Construction. The job was done accurately and with the utmost precision. It was even finished on time! Depending on when you need the work done, you might need to wait a little, but Sheps is definately worth the wait. If they weren't so good there probably wouldn't be a wait.
PROS: Accuracy, Precision, Reliable
We have used Newkirk Catering several times for the Jewish holidays. They offer a wide selection of kosher menu choices. We have tried many of their menu items and the only one that wasn't so great was the matzo ball soup. Their prices are a little high, but I feel that Newkirk Catering offers you the closest thing you can get to home cooking without staying home to cook.
PROS: Offers convenient kosher catering
CONS: A little expensive
We used this bakery for a 3 day event. Their cakes and bars are very good. They were able to provide us with enough of a variety so that we could do dessert tables for 3 different meals without ever repeating a dessert. They even made some special cakes for us where we provided family recipes. I wouldn't recommend their cookies, they were a little dry. Their prices are good and they were very accommodating.
At Patricks you will find beautiful French pastries and wonderful French breads. They also have a menu if you would like to dine in and they sell condiments that compliment their breads. The pastries have been a little "Americanized" but are delicious nonetheless. The chocolate bread is very authentic and very wonderful! Their prices are a little high but if you want to impress your dinner guests their pastries are very impressive.
PROS: Beautiful Pastries and Wonderful Breads
CONS: Prices are a little high
