Luna Park or ?

Thinking about going to Luna Park for the first time on Saturday night with a group of 7. I've read mixed reviews and wondered if anyone has eaten there recently. Any other suggestions in the same price range?

    I haven't been in a few months, but I definitely enjoy the food--especially the goat cheese fondue. It can be noisy if you aren't in a curtained booth, so bring your megaphone.

      I go there probably once a week because I live right around the corner and it's just so easy. But the food is good too. I really like the salmon and the nicoise salad and my bf is a fan of the jerk chicken. In general it's a fun scene, the food is good (and consistently so) and the staff is really nice. I see a lot of people having birthdays and various other celebration dinners there. Also, go for happy hour... cheaper food and a sangria special!

        be prepared to wait for your table for over an hour even with a reservation but once you get seated the food is amazing. The goat cheese fondue and mussels with french fries are a must order on the menu. Also their salads are really good. The entrees are large and good for sharing. but you must make a reservation and show up a little early my boyfriend and I have had to wait for over an hour for our table with one so beware.

          Totally agree with the Goat Cheese fondue - that stuff is awesome! And I went with a party of 4 and a reservation, and we were seated within 5 minutes, on a Friday night.

          The flank steak is a good deal, esp for $15. Really yummy and comes with fries. The mac & cheese is good too but overpriced at $13 in my opinion.

          Maybe consider Bossa Nova. One of my favorite restaurants, huge menu of meat, pizzas, pastas, salads, sandwiches. But they get as busy as Luna Park, and I'm not sure if they take reservations, though for a party of 7, possibly.

            If you want to try the fondue, go on a Monday. Just ask for the starving artist special. It's 20 something dollars and you get the goat cheese fondue a choice of a entree plus a yummy dessert. GOOD DEAL!
