    The reviews I read before dining here were consistent regarding the food. We were celebrating our twin wives birthdays and the experience was excellent. Calamari and green bean appetizers were spot on. The steaks were cooked perfectly to temperature. The scallops were fit for a Ramsey restaurant. Wine list could expand a bit but service was quick and attentive. Over all, it was a wonderful experience and we will be back again and again.

    I can't really fault the food although, I would like to see a little more variety in the menu. The service was great, attentive and patient. The ambiance is excellent for a nice quiet dinner for 2 or more. The one area I can fault them on is the pricing of the meals being too high. I cook high end food at home and I know all the pricing for the cuts of meat or other dishes. The markup on the menu items are quite large. I'm not sure if i's to cover the extra staff or the location overhead but, restaurants in the area with comparable menu items are not priced as high. Other than that, I would recommend this restaurant.

    I'm not quite sure how and why this has 4 stars. The service was okay. Not spectacular. Really a 3.5 star but that's it. The food was okay as well. Meat had a charred taste. It left you chewing it, as oppose to getting it down the hatch. Drinks were good. Mashed potatoes were extremely dry. I expected so much more from a $$ menu.

    Overall food was very good and service was excellent. The only flaw in execution was the daily specials from the prior day were left in the menu so one of the selections that was chosen was not available so the waiter had to come out and let us know which caused a slight delay in delivery of the entrees. After the entrees were served, we had asked for a 2nd portion of bread which never arrived. Seeing how none of us left with leftovers, the portion size was just right and the meal met everyone's expectations which is rare. The 2008 Solis cab was also a nice selection. All in all, a great choice that also turned out to be quite reasonable at $158 for 5 (4 adults + 1 child) including wine, before gratiuity.

    It was extremely easy to make the online reservation. I changed it to add more people and there was no problem. Even when calling in to confirm, the staff was very courteous and friendly. The service was great, throughout the meal even when people showed up late. The waiter was very accommodating too the needs of the party. I had asked during the reservation for separate checks and it was no problem at all when it came time to closing everyone's tabs. The only problem was that I had one guest with special food requests and they were not able to accommodate her, other than that everyone else was very satisfied with their meals. We had the burger, scallops, chicken, salmon and Chinese salad. It was all delicious!

    I had lunch with a friend and we ordered the calamari and two entree salads. However the waiter forgot the calamari and brought it later and I brought it to his attention. But to my amazement, the waiter did a service recovery and apologized for the delay and compensated us for the lack of service. All in all the food was very good and the service recovery will entice me to go back to this restaurant because they do care about their customer service.

    We were a group of 10. Smaller groups would work better here. Service is great, and so is the food. Wine list ok, but they had no Pinot Griego, my fav! Disappointing. Small place with a large bar. Divided into 3 areas, 2 for dining 1 for the bar. Noise level is high so conversation is difficult.

    The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The Chef was wonderful, preparing a dish off the menu just for a member of our party celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately, the filet although superb, was very very small and very pricey. One of the specials was prime rib which I ordered, medium-rare, and I received a generous cut of medium well which went uneaten, and the wait staff never asked if there was a problem with the order. They do have a children's meal, offering different sauces on the penne pasta which was nice.

    The bar service was slow. It is always important for the waiter to acknowledge your presence even if you can't immediately wait on them at that time. I really enjoyed the mahi mahi. The veal piccata was just ok. Once dining is complete it would be very nice if the dishes were cleared from the table. I think a little management and training would benefit this good restaurant.
