Great place for a party 5/4/2010

A little late with my review but here it is nonetheless. I had a birthday party here in Nov. '09 with abt 70 people. I worked with the party coordinator, John, who was very accommodating with the menu. I had quite a few small children there and wanted something they could eat and he threw in some pizzas & mozzarella sticks. I thought I would have to sacrifice one of my menu selections but didn't have to. The atmosphere is nice & casual. Someplace you would come for a nice brunch on a weekend and I plan to. My friends loved the place and thought the food was very good. I would definitely do another party here!! Pros: Very easy to work with (JOHN), good food and atmosphere more

Great recommendation, or should I say Great Choice 12/10/2009

I was referred to this bar/restaurant by Shecky's. What a great referral. I had my birthday party in the Choice Room & Brick Room. Everything was perfect. Music, food, staff, and mangers were great. The open bar package was reasonable and they were not stingy with the finish time (they extended the open bar for 20m at no additional charge). I would recommend Choice as they really do a fantastic job planning, hosting, and sticking to their promises. My friends loved the place and I am sure they will get repeat business from this party. Pros: party service is fantastic, great bartender (Denise) more

Brunch was great! 12/2/2009

I'm always looking for places to go with my three children when my parents come to town. We tried the Brunch at Choice (table of 5 kids and 12 adults) and were pleasantly surprised. Although it looks sophisticated, they were more than accomadating to our large party. The food was amazing, and the stuffed french toast was the best i have ever had! The staff was friendly and would be nice if they had a crayon or two to occupy the kids...I will be back! Pros: great for groups Cons: more highchairs, crayons for kids more

Awesome Party 11/27/2009

Choice was an awesome place to have my birthday party. The stuck to everything they said they would, private room was really cool (after midnight we moved to the main bar), appetizers were delicious. Upon first arriving, Katie gave all my guests a free glass of champagne as a toast to me. My friends and I had a great evening and I will definitely recommend having a party at Choice. P.S Our bartenders Felipe and Sheryl were a riot and did a fabulous job! Thanks again, great night. Pros: manager followed through, DJ was great, cool place Cons: hung over more

Wonderful Place for a Shower 11/22/2009

After having to make a last minute change of venues for my daughter's Bridal Shower, we chose this restaurant sight unseen. The event coordinator and her staff went out of their way to provide everything we asked for in this attractive restaurant. The food was excellent, the service professional and courteous, and the price reasonable. They were very gracious with me trying to plan an event while living hours away, working with people I didn't know, and a place I had never seen, with food we had never tasted. But they provided everything we agreed upon, and it exceeded our expectations. Our guests raved about the food, the service, and the accommodations. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: Decor, Excellent Food and Service, Reasonable Price more

October 15th Party was great! 10/20/2009

Thank you John, Katie, and the staff of Choice for a fabulous party. Your suggestions and planning made the event effortless on my part. The appetizers, entrees, and drinks were delicious. We were 10 people short of our guarantee of 150 guests. The owner did not charge us the difference; I thought this was a very nice and classy gesture. You’ve earned our business and trust. Great job. Pros: great party planners, space is beautiful, nice staff more

Absolutely Amazing! 9/18/2009

I had a huge corporate event held at CHOICE. The food was amazing, drinks were amazing, and the customer service was incredible. Everyone said it was the best food they've ever had at a Corporate Event. I highly suggest CHOICE, whether youre having a huge event or just a fun night out.. Great venue, great times! Pros: Best Customer Service Around more

Sweet 16 Birthday Party 8/19/2009

My daughter wanted to have her Sweet 16 Birthday party in New York with her camp friends and we live in Washington DC. I actually found Choice on the internet after reading the reviews on Citysearch. I spent hours and hours calling restaurants in NY and Katie at Choice was the nicest one I spoke to. (In fact some Catering Managers I spoke with were down right rude!). Katie was helpful, accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. She even helped me find a bakery for the cake and offered to pick it up the day of the party. It so happens that Katie was out of town the night of my daughter's party and Eric, the manager was in charge. He was very patient with all of my last minute phone calls, questions and basic nuttiness. We even had the waiters at Choice change the floor plan 5 minutes before the guests arrived. Eric allowed my daughter to blast her music from her ipod (the speakers were for the entire restaurant) and the kids had a great time dancing to their music. The food was yummy-- we went for a very kid friendly menu--spinach dip (the best I have ever had), chicken and beef skewers, caesar salad, tomato and mozzarella, hummus and pita etc.... but the way they served it on beautiful/funky square platters made the menu very upscale! All in all, my daughter loved her Sweet 16 and I think her friends had a great time. Eric, the manager (and Eric the bartender serving sodas and ""mocktails""), thank you for everything!!!!! Pros: Great for a Sweet 16 more

Great College Graduation Party!!! 6/30/2009

Thank you to John, Eric and Katie for managing such a fabulous party from start to finish!\r My son's college graduation party was on Saturday,\r June 20th. The food was great! The service was over the top!!! It was perfect. The college kids stayed aroung the huge bar and the family members stayed in the back where there was plenty of seating.\r The bartenders were on top of their game. Thank you to Lauren, Nadine and anyone else helping at the bar and \r buffet. Judging from comments made to me at the party and phone calls the next day commenting on the fabulous event, I am sure you will be hosting many more parties! Thank you again for making this event a memorable one!!!\r Hoping to see you soon!\r Maureen\r Pros: Everything was fabulous! Cons: I honestly can't think of a negative comment! more

Inconsiderate 5/18/2009

My girlfriend received an email through this website called ""Groupon"" which sells you discounted gift certificates for dinner in NYC. We've never done this but it seemed like a cool concept to try out brunch - it was $10 for a $30 gift certificate. Once we got there we were told that they do not honor the GC, and then after I showed them the small print they said they would only accept it during dinner.\r \r Classic bait-and-switch. We walked right around the corner and went to Blue Smoke which was outstanding, as always. I would recommend not giving Choice Kitchen your business - they clearly do not understand the business-client relationship. Pros: looked well furnished Cons: rude, inconsiderate staff more

I'll take 2 red and a white... 5/2/2009

The have an insanse special on Sunday and Monday nights for their 3 year anniversary. $10 bottles of good wine and $2 beers. The wines they offered were pretty good, probably cost the same at a wine shop. Get there early on Sundays if you want to sit outside. Apps were really good, but ten dollars for a bottle of wine, I'd can't be beat. Plan on going back with a larger group this time, 6 bottles for the table please!! Pros: cool deal, great outside, nice peeps Cons: wish the special was on friday or saturday more

Great party once again! 4/11/2009

I had a birthday party at Choice last year in the private room and my friends had such a great time, I decided to have a joint birthday party. We had too many attendees for the private room and had the party at the main bar and island bar. Katie and Jon took care of everything. The food was great, the space was perfect and DJ Dom was great at keeping the party going. Everyone had an amazing night and your attention to all of my concerns [and phone calls, sorry Katie:) ]was greatly appreciated. My friends have already asked for your info. Pros: Katie , Jon& the DJ, fun bartenders, & great set-up more

Excellent venue for a birthday party!!! 4/5/2009

John and Katie were both a pleasure to work with! They were incredibly responsive, a huge help in setting up a beautiful room and table, and did everything they could to make my husband's 40th birthday a special celebration!\r \r Customized packages make it affordable. Everyone had a great time and the privacy of our room and table along with the great energy at Choice made it a lot of fun! Would highly recommend for anyone thinking of throwing any kind of party here! Pros: Excellent party planners, great food, and customized package more

Great party place! 3/20/2009
