Two of my favorite restaurants are the Gramercy Tavern in NYC and Au Cheval in Chicago. Both are known for a great vibe and amazing comfort food. I have to throw MLC into that mix. Their menu was inventive, food quality excellent - main, appetizer and dessert along with a creative wine list. Background music made for a fun atmosphere,... More

i have been here for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. It is always packed. i just take out my hearing aids before I walk in now. Everyone is happy and drinking the excellent cocktails, or good wines. ['cept for breakfast... then it is delicious coffee.] The wait for food feels interminable. The menu is very very interesting, hard to choose. I... More

My wife are huge foodies and came here with high expectations, we left very disappointed. We were not in the mood for appetizers so we decided to skip a pre entree treat and just go right for the main course. We were expecting at least some bread to start but had to ask for it. When we received our bill... More

MLC is a funky, hip, hipstery restaurant with great, eclectic music, helpful, friendly servers, interesting cocktails, beer and wine and awesome food. Don't worry too much if you can't square the flavors with exactly what is on the menu (they take some liberties) just eat what is served, you won't be disappointed.

My friend and I stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner before 5pm - lucky for us, we had the advantage of the "snack" menu. We sat at the bar right in front of our chefs which was awesome as we had the chance to chat with Nathaniel (I hope I got t hat right - our Italian chef!) and... More

Our family spent a wonderful hour or so at Misery Loves Company on our way back to St. Michael's College after Holiday break. What a treat. One son had the cheeseburger (which he claimed to be one of the best--and he has had many--ever, one sausage gravy and biscuits (like his dad--it was terrific, flavorful, just the right weight, with...

The menu is avant-garde almost to a fault. Food was very good, but the portions don't match the price for a restaurant 300 miles from Manhattan. $200 for four people (one entree, three small plates, and five beers). My review mostly reflects my sticker shock, but a bit for the lack of description on the menu. I ordered the Lubina... More
