been there 4 times and had a wonderful times with friends. the first time we tried an assortment of tapas and with each bit i wa like "oh my God" it was that good. the delicate fusuin of flafors were a treat indeed. I always let the handsome manager sugest a cocktail and i haven't been disappointed. An enjoyable relaxing 4 hours just breezes by. I tend to avoid crowds so i haven't gone on a weekend night when there's entertainment. I'll have to try that. when we went there was nice music in the background that wasn't so loud that you couldn't enjoy good conversation with your friends. the last time wejust met friends for a drink and the manager sugested Velozi's for dinner. He actually walked us over, procured us the best table for six and introduced us to the owner. what an evening of great company great coctails and great food.
Horrific Behavior By Staff - DO NOT GO - PEOPLE WALKED OUT THEY WERE SO APPALLED
Came in with a friend who lives 3 hours away and we asked the hostess if we could both use Groupons. She told us yes, and I asked...even if we are at the same table, and she said yes again then my friend purchased one. When we got to the back they said we could not use it since we walked in together. They said the hostess was new and it was her first day. (even if it was true...which I doubt...they shouldn't have her own her own if she isn't trained...she represents the business). When I tried to explain that they needed to honor what they told us up front, they got rude. I asked to speak to a manager and was told there wasn't anyone there (on a Saturday night...right!). The waiter printed the Groupon rules which said one per group and insisted that since we walked in together we were only eligible for one at the same table. So I said fine..my mom and I will go to another table, so we got up, got back in line and were seated at another table. We figured that would be the end of it but hear them yelling at my friend across the room. The woman got in his face and told him to leave. I started to head over to see what was happening and the other folks at the table got up and left and told them they did not like how they were treating us and said they were taking their business elsewhere. I told everyone I was done too and was preparing to leave when the woman that was in my friends face finally said she would call her supervisor for an exception then seconds later (super fast call to explain everything that happened) said she would make as exception because she didnt want us to post anything negative on the Internet. Ummm...TOO LATE! You do not behave that way to paying customers, especially in front of a 10 year old child that was with us! If your hostess didnt tell us that two groupons were ok, my friend would have never purchased. The fact that we asked that you honor your word and you turn rude and nasty and get in our faces in front of a child is totally unacceptable! I was trying to take my mother out for a nice dinner and you completely ruined our experience. You should be ashamed and embarrassed as a business. We will never be back and have already started telling everyone as know what happened so they never go either.
Lovely atmosphere, just what we needed in our area. Wonderful to
local and have this caliber of dining experience without trotting to the
"burgh" with all of it's baggage and disappointing dining experience.
Kudo's to you Linda and staff. Absolutely wonderful gastronomic experience and atmosphere
Soul Village has graced the R Bar with their talent. Sugar Ray and his excelent musicians were fantastic along with resident artist sitting in. As usual the staff and owners make everyone more than welcome
Food is ok, service is very slow & wait staff not attentive. Had to sit for 20 minutes waiting for a drink while the server ate his dinner. No wonder the place was a ghost town during the "dinner rush." Will not go back.

Chris for letting us have the room for a fun night again thank you.Hope
to use it again for something in the future\
OVER PRICED AND MASS PRODUCED
We had a bad experience at Jimmy Wan's restaurant at Freeport Rd. It was like eating at a fast food restaurant. They took our order and immediately brought the food to the table before we got our drinks. It was a 15 minute meal. We complained to the owners. They were not concerned and never apologized for the bad service. The food here is MASS PRODUCED. The food is already prepared; that is why they bring it right away to the table. It is also overpriced. We won't go back.
This is THE BEST place to have ANY event...the owner is VERY accommodating,helpful,reliable and professional..He is also a fabulous decorator ...they have there own clean up crew and and D.J equipment with lots of room to host or dance..there is also lots of tables and chairs for everybody...I can't wait to rsvp my next event...
The Linden Grove is a great nightclub!! There is always great music for dancing. On Thursday nights, it is oldies night with DJ Bugger which is great for the older folks to come out and dance. Friday nights they always have really great live bands. The bands are lots of fun and very entertaining, well worth the price of admission!! Saturday nights they have a great DJ who plays 80s, 90s and current day dance music. There's a great mix of people and it's a fun atmosphere. I love this place!!
My family have enjoyed so many spectacular events and enjoyed
the serenity and alive historic nature of the Frick history,
cafe and flower gardens!
I completely disagree with the previous poster on most points. Yes, the gym isn't the cleanest place ever, and yes, some of the machines are frequently broken, but it's a cheap monthly rate and everyone who works the desk is great! And the owner is absolutely amazing! I was also a member at the old location and he was always kind and willing to help with any workout questions. When my husband and I joined at the new location recently, the man working the desk made us some complimentary protein shakes and they were yum! We love it here!
The butler YMCA. One of the worst YMCA's in America. The staff was verry friendly and nice. The pools were terrible very dirty and salty. The pool being with a greenish tint lead me to believe there was something wrong with the filter or just neglect to keep the water sanitary. The hot tub was so potent with chemicals it burnt my skin and felt like acid. Avoid this one...
Perfect place for all the wanna be Jersey Shore douchebags. Overpriced watered down drinks.
Gourmet in Avalon! Service is fast and friendly. Goat cheese, sweet pepper,
Olive tapenade flat bread was AMAZING! Real sausage gravy. Bananas foster
French toast. Some gluten free items. Tons of vegetarian items.
As well as meaty treats like muffuletta, pulled pork.

Went there with my girlfriend.. A few couples, maybe 3 single women and a TON of single guys. They let in whomever wants to pay admission. They should really limit the amount of single men but it doesnt seem as if they ever will
Checked out IVP Bar & Pizza last night. They opened in the old 'Coogans Bar' spot on Carson. While not too havvy that they didn't have any light beers on tap besides Bud Lite, I was very happy with their $.35 wings. I ordered 6 in 'Honey BBQ' and 6 in 'Fiery Hot'. The fiery hot is a combination of Franks red hot and red pepper that had a great kick but didn't gag me when eating. The honey bbq was delicious. It was thick & rich, clung to the wing when I picked it up- aside from the one drop that landed on my pants. :)
We found them on BarSmart while driving down Carson and decided to stop in... We're glad we did...
Go ahead, Give IVP a try...!
Pittsburgh's #1 Italian Food!
The work is ok Sarah was kinda snotty. I went Ryan Clark. His work was ok but he made me extremely uncomfortable and was overly sexual. Come to find out he also has a reputation for being a perv after talking to my friend who went to Ryan at a previous shop. Ryan hit on a 16yo girl. Gross. My business will go elsewhere. Professionalism is lacking in that shop.
