UNWASHED HANDS – The quality of the food has steadily declined from just a few years ago. The kicker happened in the men's bathroom when I witnessed a kitchen staff member use the urinal and go back to the kitchen without washing his hands. But, to make matters worse, I informed the hostess what I saw and she denied it happened in the best broken English she could muster.
Great food anytime of the day or night - 7 days a week and great service.... – I love Karaoke and just started going to the Cardinal on Wednesday nights for the great Karaoke on that night. I usually go in early and have something to eat at the restaurant. The food is great and the portions in most cases more than I can handle. The service is great and in the bar it is the same. The bar is great as most everyone is having a good time and no outrageous noise or troublemakers as I have seen in some bars around town. Great place and reccomend all the facilities that are available there.
Best diner open after midnight – I'm sure you can find better fare, better service, better value during day-worker's hours, but I don't think you can find anything better after then. Loved the lights; I recommend you be in perky mood, ready for a diner meets Vegas atmosphere. My french toast was yummy. It was not too soggy, and had a good eggy flavor. The apple pie was average. Service was slow.
Hungry – If its late and your looking for a place other than Denny's...This is it. Loads of choices. Good portions and tasty deserts.....There is also an ajoining lounge w/music. With the lights and decor it reminds you of Vegas.
Breakfast all day and late-night noshes are served up with saucy flair at this diner-lounge. – In Short
Any time of day, the red-flecked vinyl booths overflow with hungry patrons, dining on anything from prime rib to moussaka to Belgian waffles and Philly cheese steaks. The adjacent lounge offers a full array of cocktails and nightly entertainment--including karaoke and live music. The extensive menu, super-quick waitstaff and retro-diner atmosphere make it popular with the late-night, post-party set.
Bad experience – Food is not as good as it is advertised Very expensive compared to the quality.
This place is certainly not a great location to take friends for a late nite dinner or breakfast.
Lounge appeal – You gotta love the cardinal lounge. It is such a fun place to go late night and grab some well priced eats. I love that there is live music and a cocktail lounge. Very comforting. So cheesy it is chic.
