Excellent restaurant. Great menus and drinks. Nice staff and service. Fun place
Excellent Brunch – Just had the most perfect omelete today for brunch; moist on the inside, slightly brown on the outside and served with amazing fries
WHAT A SCAM!!!!!! – LETS START FROM THE SERVICE- NONE ONE IS EVER THERE, REDHEAD MAN WALKS AROUND CONSTANTLY IN A HORRIBLE MOOD. DO NOT GO AS A MAN DRESSED UP LOOKING LIKE YOU HAVE MONEY BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE THE BARTENDERS AND COATCHECKED LADY SENT TO YOU BY THE OWNER TO MAKE YOU BUY BTL OF CRISTAL. IF YOU SAY YOU WONT DRINK IT ALL, THE WORKERS WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP YOU. MAKE SURE YOU ALWATS CHECK YOUR BILL BECAUSE THEY ADD EXTRA STUFF ON IT, !!!!! THATS WHY WHEN PPLGET A TAB THAN THEY ARE A LITTLE SURPRISED WHY ITS SO HIGH, BUT THEY PAY AND LEAVE LOL... WHAT A FOOLS !!!!!!!! PHILIP, IF YOU WANT MY OR MY FRIEND BUSINESS AND I KNOW YOU DO BC YU ARE SUFFERING NOW- CHANGE THE ATTITUDE OF THE STUFF AND MAKE IT MORE PROFESSIONAL AND COZY..
Used to be great! – I used to love 212, best bar in my neighborhood. The girls are hot and the drinks are good. I can't go as much now because the tab can get pretty high (it is a recession), and my favorite bartenders are never there anymore! Jaimie left and Carrissa is only there on Monday! One reviewer said you are paying for pretty and I like that! I don't mind paying the money for a smoking hot bartender to pay attention to me. I go to 212 the other night and some ugly 40 year old with a saggy chest is behind the bar! Now, sweetheart I don't care if you are a boxer, I want a lady serving me, a beautiful lady! Not somebody's beat up mother! So, Philip you can have my business back if you get back to the old 212. I want hot girls with tight bodies serving me, not old ladies! I know most guys in the neighborhood feel the same way, we miss the old 212 with our pretty girls. Gave it a real VIP feel.
GREAT BRUNCH - AWSOME STAFF – We had a great brunch yesterday. The food was very good, great prices and very attentive service.
BTW the all staffs girl is brilliantly assembled
HIGH EXPECTATIONS – i am a big fan of Citysearch and read the reviews of 212 after my best friend suggested me to have dinner there.
212 didn't disappoint. Very good, great vibe and superb food.
PERFECT EVENT – I would like to thank all the staff of 212 for making my private party so special. The food and the service was spectacular from the time i inquired about the private room to the last minute of the reception.
NOT SO LOUD AMIGOS – I WAS THERE FOR BRUNCH. 212 WAS PACKED BUT APPARENTLY THEY TURNED DOWN THE MUSIC BECAUSE I DIDNT HEAR ANY OF IT OR MAY BE THE PREVIOUS REVIEWERS ARE 70 YEARS OLD. GREAT EGGS AND PRETTY CHEAP. I GUESS THEY LOWERED THE PRICES TOO!
Really Noisy, Really Good Food, Really Care About Getting Your $$ – The food last night was excellent, but a bit overpriced. The service was ok. The atmosphere was really noisy, though the place was only half full. The Bartender and Coat Check girl must have been on something b/c they were laughing/screaming so loud I jumped from my seat (which was 20 ft from the bar) a number of times. Lastly, when leaving, we went to tip the coat check girl and had to use that Tip money as payment for the coats. I don't mind paying $100 for dinner but is the extra $1 necessary? This could be the only restaurant where the coat check wasn't free that I've been to in years (that isn't also a club/bar).
TOO LOUD BUT GOOD – If you want to eat good food and have your ears blowned up 212 is the perfect place. We had to ask the manager 3 times before he really lowered the music...ridiculous
