    Our friends and I were celebrating my husbands birthday and we had a fantastic time!! We got endless brunch and mimosas. Since my husband isn’t huge on sweets, Patrick brought out a bottle with a candle on it as we sang happy birthday and it was so much fun! A couple friends had never been there and absolutely LOVED their first experience.

    We’ve been to Sinema before, but the menu changes due to availability issues, etc. Our server, Patrick, was extremely knowledgeable and helped us find the perfect meal- the rib eye with potato croquettes- with duck fat and truffle… whaaaat? So amazing! Hats off to the chefs and staff at Sinema for a wonderful evening!

    My husband and I were both very impressed by the food and overall experience at Sinema. The decor was very nice - although a bit dark for my liking. The food was outstanding! We shared the agnolotti as a starter and commented that we would have been happy to have that as a main dish offering - so flavorful. My husband enjoyed the halibut and shrimp - as recommended by our server Amanda - and I had the 6 oz filet. As I prefer my steak well-done, I am usually accustomed to it being a little tough...not here...it was perfectly cooked and quite tender as well! Although we were both full from dinner, we splurged on dessert...coconut cake for my husband and the stuffed skillet cookie for me. Perfect ending to a very find meal!

    Party of 3 but continued serving portions only for 2. Charged 21% gratuity in the total bill and wasn’t stellar service. Then at check out soliciting for another tip …..weird. Patrons should know upfront that gratuity is automatically charged with total bill (patrons expects stellar customer service with that). We’re not sure about dining with this establishment again.

    SinemaResponded on September 18, 2022So sorry to see that you weren't happy with your experience with us. Our portions are standard sized, and we definitely encourage guests to order more of any items they like bottomlessly, to maximize their experience. Additionally, it is mentioned twice on the brunch menu that there is a 20%, not 21%, service fee added to all checks. We do expect excellent service from our servers, and are terribly apologetic if that is not what you believe you received.

    Sinema is gorgeous for a special occasion or just wanting to feel special. It’s beautifully decorated and offers excellent customer service. I’m a southerner so I know southern cuisine. It was good. The portions are good sized and they offer a range of brunch options for the bottomless special.

    The aesthetics here are so cute! Went for Saturday brunch and it was sub par. The service was absolutely the worst. The server ignored us for 5-10 min after being sat. I ordered bottomless drinks and she didn't bring anything. She put in food for us and 6 plates for 2 people came out one time and cold. The food also came out way before we had a drink. I then had to order things 2-3 times for the server to even put our order in. She kept trying to joke and make excuses but she actually kept disappearing. It was just a not good experience. The food was mediocre. Mimosas were great though.

    The food is limited. There's onions pre-mixed. Almost all the food has meat. And the $35 bottomless brunch is not worth it unless youre able to eat quite a bit and you can't opt to buy just a single dish. They will not serve you mimosas without food either. The coffee was absolutely terrible.

    Overall our experience was good. Our server Amanda was delightful, knowledgeable and personable. We started with the shishito peppers which were delicious and prepared perfectly. For entrees - Two of us had the market catch and the other two the short ribs. The walleye was a delicious surprise and the short ribs were good although a tad dry. Dessert was the skillet brownie. I enjoy the ambiance at Sinema as it is truly unique and the meals are always lovely.

    Glad I experienced most of the menu at Sinema through the tasting menu. I went with the premium tasting option, mostly because I wanted the sparkling wine with one dish. Otherwise, there was nothing outstanding about the premium wine selection. My server, Amanda was very helpful and attentive throughout service.
