We've been there twice now and would definitely go back. Great service; delicious food; lively atmosphere.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting ambience, beingInteresting ambience, being in the former jail. Great service and good food overall. Some dishes were outstanding, especially the eggplant tower and cream of chicken soup. Waitstaff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Music selection did not add to the atmosphere in our opinion. Too energetic and peppy for dining. Suggest they revisit playlist.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHave never been to "jail"Have never been to "jail" before but this is the way to go! Went for an early Sunday night dinner, very welcoming staff, attentive and helpful. Our waiter, Matt, was knowledgable, able to describe the menu items in detail, and had a great sense of humor.

Appetizer: we shared the special pesto bruscetta which was so well balanced with sweet tomatoes, smoked mozzarella and pesto drizzled with balsamic served over a delicate perfectly toasted disc of bread. For entrees we had the Veal Tower which was light yet filling with medallions of veal layered with spinach, broccolini and a thin slice of smoked Gouda served with roasted red potatoes. My husband had the pasta special (all pasta made in house)which was papardella with peas and seared shrimp in a creamy sauce. All portions were generous, but we even had room to share the best Tiramisu.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Escape is a great food escapeGreat Escape was an overall good experience for our first visit there. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was adequately attentive even though the place was busy and abuzz with activity. The menu had an excellent variety and the food that we ordered was all good, well prepared and plated as well as prompt. Free valet service was great except the driveway is REALLY narrow. I would go again and would recommend it to anyone in that area. The ambiance is great and a nice change up from mundane interiors without being overdone.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
