Awesome happy hour, food and ambience. They also do catering for special events. I had them cater an important business dinner at Loft 201 - 701 Whaley; Richard Couture (owner) and Chef Howard did a phenomenal job! We had a number of special requests and they happily accommodated them with perfection. Everyone raved about the food and the unique experience.... More

We were a group of twelve for dinner at 7 pm. Several folks arrived 1/2 early and everyone was seated promptly. Carline and Stewart immediately greeted us began by offering bread service, water and cocktails and as the remainder arrived they were waited on expeditiously. The servers ensures our cocktails were replaced immediately, as well as bread and water. The... More

We have been to several of the "Feature Nights" including the lobster and filet nights. The filet was the best I have had at any restaurant. The owner is warm and friendly and the staff pleasant and efficient. The wine dinners have been informative, offered great pricing, and presented wonderful pairings. Please don't pass up an opportunity to give this... More

My favorite restaurant in Columbia has succumbed to new owners and new chef over the previous 1 to 2 months!!! The menu is the same but changes are on the horizon as they can't cook/prepare the old great dishes. Examples: fried artichoke hearts were excellent in past with tomato jam!! Now over crusted artichokes with no flavor and a new... More

I received an email from Rosso advertising their Tuesday night lobster nite. Being from New England I can never resist a lobster night special! However, what a huge disappointment!! I had been to Rosso several times before and found their food to be very inconsistent - sometimes great, sometime requiring the food to be sent back, but the photo in... More

We wanted to go to a restaurant that was not downtown. We have previously been to Solstice Kitchen which also used to own this restaurant (recently sold but kept chef). So we decided to try it. The food was very good. I had the wedge and the scampi Rosso. The wedge was unusual in that it had ciabatta croutons in... More

I really wanted to like this place. The ambiance is nice with all the artwork on the walls (although it's really a showcase of over-priced as well) for sale. The service was excellent and there was a really talented jazz duo with a great singer . My problem is with the food. I had a $25 dish of mediocre pasta... More

The bar tender was very attentive and knew the wine menu exceptionally well. We had a few specials including a lobster dish and more, was all pretty much perfect. From the primary menu we had the margarita pizza and it was definitely one of the best I've had. You can see the wood fired pizza oven from the bar. Ended... More
