I have been here before for drinks. This is a simple lounge with ok food, and thankfully no cover charge to hang out and spend your money.
The ambiance is pretty good, as the music is not too loud - you can actually talk at a normal volume. It is a small place that seems larger than it is. The unisex bathrooms on the silly side though...especially for bars where control may be an issue later in the evening.
The service..... both times I have been here, the bartender has been good, and the waitresses.... well, a little selective and inconsistent.
Now for the food.... I had the steak and the wife had the chicken. Both decent enough, but a little pricey. The steak was slightly overdone, but the chicken was tender and juicy. Food was simply prepared, and very pleasant in appearance. The flavors did not fight each other. However, the mashed potatoes were way too salty.... it made the whole mean seem salty. Really salty. Fries ok, but keep the salt away from the other stuff. The chef cares about the food, but needs to lay off the salt.
The Entertainment Book coupon made the price "fair", but I would not have been happy paying full price as there are so many other eating options in the price range. Portions were suitable and left us satisfied. Food was prepared quickly enough so that we could relax during our meal and make our next engagement on time. I think you can trust the Granville Room not to interfere with you getting to your movie or concert.
The was a adequate selection of beer and wine, but it looks like they make up for the lack of cover charge by charging $7 for a glass of draught beer. Maybe that keeps the yahoo factor away.
I most likely will return to this place.
