"He's extremely talented," the source continues of Slater, 31, who will be playing Boq in the upcoming big screen version of Wicked, which is slated for a Nov. 27 release.

The source says Grande seemed to be having a great night with her small group of friends.

"She was so sweet, smiling at everyone who caught her eye, and having a nice dinner with a small group of friends in one of the banquettes at the back. It was a very intimate crowd, mostly full of theater fans. Nobody was bothering her."

The onlooker notes Grande even joined in with the other guests to wish one of the patrons a happy birthday when a dessert with a candle came out for her.
