I realize these are all quite different, but I need to select one of them for a dinner next week. Please vote!

      With a colleague whom I don't know very well. These seemed to be the best options available for our particular day and time.

      If location, cost, type of food, atmosphere not any issue I would also go with Maude's.

        With regard to Maude's I would ask who your colleague is -- if he/she is a dockers and golf shirt kind of colleague, Maude's is NOT it. You'd be better off at Belly Q. Haven't been in more than 6 months, but Maude's is "hip and cool" not hipster, but higher end cocktailing type crowd.

          I would vote for Maude's, and ask to be seated upstairs.
