    Good staff and that's all.They brought pasta with seafood instead of seafood plate as it was written in menu for 29$. Wine wasn't enough good for 12$ per glass.And yep,18% tips. Not recommended!

    The crowd seemed a bit too mature, and the drinks were overpriced. $7 for just red bull?

    Super fun, but if you want to have a conversation DON'T sit right in front of the piano. Also bring cash to tip the singers!

    The bartenders singing while they make drinks is fantastic. TARA is amazing. Amazing. Mariah Carey who? And JOSH? Best piano man ever and overly entertaining in the comedy department as well.

    Beat the post curtain rush to get a table or you'll be sat in the "secret back room". Tip the piano player & drink up cuz it's a sing-a-long! You're just as good as everyone else after a few cocktails

    Fun & talented performers, sour waitstaff. Come for the cabaret, not the food; it's mediocre at best.

    Don't sit in the back room, no lighting & isolating. Great for open mic if you want to sing.

    Went here for an early evening cocktail at the bar. Atmosphere was good, but not so sure about the cocktails!

    Food was not good and they do funny things with the check such as adding the tip themselves.

    At the restaurant, they'll add a 18 % gratuity to your check, even if you're just a party of two. AND even though they brought you veil chop instead of lamb chops as ordered. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO EAT!

    Make sure not to call it Karaoke when the Bway pros are singing. They don't appreciate it!

    Small piano bar. We went on a Saturday night and they had open mic. Since it's small, we didn't have to wait too long to sing. No cover, but they make up for it with drink prices.

    This place is hit or miss, but I love that these cabaret singers are willing to express their souls to the public and test things out. Go support them.

    There's a 2 drink minimum with every visitor. That's why they have no cover.
