Really enjoyed the fact that you aren't sure what you will be receive when you order the evening meal (3 course or 5). All was prepared exceptionally well and I enjoyed all 3 of the courses. Were celebrating an 80th birthday and the staff was...More

An excellent lunch option downtown - good variety, a little indulgent, and only $25 for three courses. What's not to love?

I remember the Grand theatre in the seventies. I saw taxi Driver there. There still are ruminants of the old theatre. The floor and the entry. Going there had a nostalgic glow. Until the waiter came. What a piece of work that little mister was....More

We wanted to love Workshop. It had been on my list for many months and the reviews were excellent. We went mid week for a birthday celebration. The downside of our evening was the service. Our server was lackluster and flat and rushed. He returned...More
