So to start it isnt 2 stars for the food but the service received. Let me start by saying my husband is very paticular on what he likes. So we arrived all for him to not see the dish he wanted. So of course we asked if it was possible to make. The waiter said yes and they also happen to be running two specials. One special was for $29.00 and included sirloin tips while the 2and special included a truffle cream and blk truffle mushrooms for $27.00. Now the old dish from the menu ran $22.00 but we wanted the experience to try the black truffle mushroom and decided to do a mix of the two special dishes since what he wanted was the sirloin tip with a truffle cream sauce and gnocchi pasta. But figured no problem we would pay the $29.00 just to experience the black truffle mushroom. Well come to the end and our bill was charged $60.00 so 30 per plate plus an additional $5.00. So $65.00 total. When I asked the waiter to explain the bill he stated because of the sirloin. Then I questioned how was that possible when the top dish was $29.00 only and included sirloin tip? Pretty much we took pieces from both specials to make the old dish they had for $22.00 and then it had the blk mushroom truffles. He acted confused and didnt seem to care or want to help so I just paid the bill in order to not make a scene in such a quiet small place. Very VERY disappointed at how much we were charged. Especially after he told us if we wanted the old dish from the menu it would be $23.00. Figured just for a life experience we would pay the extra $6.00 a dish to get the black truffle mushroom. Definitely wont be going back after this experience. It seems regulars are appreciated.
I will literally fly across the country to eat at Broders. It was perfect, as always.
Broders' Pasta Bar is a wonderful small restaurant that makes delicious homemade pasta. I have been here three times.  We were advised to come early, since it's a very popular place and they do not take reservations. The first time we came, we were a party of six and arrived at 4:59... one minute before opening.  Luckily, the hostess let us know they had one table left.  We were not disappointed. The food was great! I highly recommend the 'Date Night' special here. If you go between 8-9:30 pm Sunday-Thursday, for $45 you can get two salads, two entrees, two glasses of house wine, and marinated olives.  The entree choices on the 'Date Night' menu are different than on the regular menu. Quite a few are Italian classics, that happen to not have meat.  I'm vegetarian, so this is fine for me! There's usually only one or two choices without meat on the regular menu so it has been nice to have some different options to try. For meat eaters though, don't fret- there still are meaty choices on the 'Date Night' menu.   Great restaurant!  I've heard nothing but good things about Broders'.
