Service was good. This is the experience for people who want to enjoy a movie and dinner in peace. Yes it is expensive, but the food is good. Some dishes have too much food even. Seats are great. I loved it.

WHAT??? I must be missing something. I have been here for film festivals, and that was nice. But attending on a regular night to screen a film... I'm missing what is so special about eating in a theater.

The service is crazy. We arrived early, were handed hard to read menus, that looked as though they were left in the snow for a season., used our mobile phones to light the menu. ordered basic fare. People arriving after us, were served earlier, like 30 minutes earlier. Several people around us, were complaining and asking for food, when we were finally served. LAst call on the drinks was about 10 minutes prior to the film beginning, which was also 5 minutes prior to the trailers beginning.

The food was mediocre at best. The service lousy, Seems others had similar prior experiences. The film was really good.

Afterward here is the take away: this is the place to screen a film ONLY. Brink your own flask and snacks if you need that. The beauty here is one thing ONLY, you can reserve your seat in advance, on-line, when you pay for the ticket. Show up for just the movie. The seats are nice, comfortable, large, with plenty of leg-room. AVOID the food.

The only thing is that you still need to put up with other people eating, chocking, coughing and the smells of fired foods lingering in the air. I will not return. They do 'best as they can" to clean up after you leave and prior to the next herd of eaters coming in. so maybe fins scrap of food in your seat? Partial chicken wing?

This is not your budget movie theater. Cinebistro allows you to order dinner, drinks & snack to enjoy during your movie. It's a great romantic dinner & movie date. But probably not an every weekend excursion. Best part for me is that they don't allow anyone under 21. So no screaming kids and no chatty teenagers here! Good location, free parking garage across the street, and good food + service. Worth it to try once!

Seats are comfortable. Thats about all the good I can say. The food quality is horrible, the food prices are WAYYYYY overpriced ! Figure at least $60 for a small dinner, drink and dessert. Server wasn't friendly. Then at the end they actually include a 18% tip on your bill and you sign it in front of the server. They tell you that you can deduct the tip if you'd like.....not a comfortable situation with the server standing right there watching you sign. If you sit in the front row, prepare for a sore neck from trying to lookup to the screen. WON'T GO BACK.....EVER. Total waste of money.

Very nice theatre. Higher class neighborhood. Very comfortable seats and nice employees. Food is a bit overpriced but the fact you can have a mea and drinks while watching a movie is pretty cool in general. :-)
