Delightful dinner with our daughter and son-in-law. The halibut special was superb and almost more that I could eat, but I ate it all. It was so good that we bypassed the Wednesday night surf&turf, but not the hot fudge brownie!
We had lunch and enjoyed the food. Service was mediocre as Tristan (our server) seemed disinterested and rushed (although restaurant was not busy). We have been here before and chefs do a nice job while service is typically lacking.
This is one of our favorite places to go for special occasions. The meal was good for the price. It was really cold even in the room with the fireplace.
Our server, Tristan, excellent. He was attentive without being intrusive. The food was prepared just about flawlessly. We really enjoyed our meal.
We went for Valentine's Day. It was a very nice dinner out. We shared a shrimp cocktail. There were six large shrimp, but only a half a cup of cocktail sauce and no forks. The salad greens were fresh, but I would have liked more than just tomatoes and walnuts - some shredded carrots and sliced cucumbers, maybe. We had asked for the sides to be switched for my husband's meal, which they had told us could be done, but it wasn't. I had the halibut, which was good, but on the dry side. The place does have a lovely atmosphere and we will probably dine there again in the future.
My husband and I came for a birthday dinner. It was the weekend before Valentine’s Day, so possibly this could be the reason for the perfect storm of mishaps.
We started with a first course-I had the pumpkin mushroom soup, which, for some reason had a film on it like it had been waiting for a while. Other than the film, it was very good, I really enjoyed it. My husband ordered a wedge salad with ranch-it’s how he likes it. He was brought a salad without any dressing. We thought maybe it comes on the side and the server (not the waiter-how stupid is this?,-yet we see it everywhere) forgot. For whatever reason-the waiter doesn’t check to see if what is served is ok and we have to ask a busgirl. She goes to check on the dressing and comes back without any dressing and says there is no ranch (lol-and it gets worse). She asks if he wants a different dressing (uhh, yea-this slab of lettuce isn’t going down without some dressing)-he finally says a balsamic will be fine and she brings it. Now the waiter comes back and says there was ranch-he had gotten it. Ok, but it never made it out.Our plates are taken and we end up waiting a very long time for our entrees...so long in fact we were told twice they were almost ready. When they bring them-again a server- my husband’s filet had no Oscar....we’re looking under because we want to make sure they wouldn’t mess up his entree too. But.they.did. So,it’s taken back and re-plated with a smidge of the crab sauce he wanted. He cuts into the filet and it’s well done-nary any pink in it. The waiter comes and looks and knew it was not done properly-had he been the server maybe it wouldn’t have come out that way. Now...and I won’t even get any more picky-there were other issues. I will end on a positive note and tell you that management did come and listen to us and tried to rectify the situation which was expected.
I want to believe it was a comedy of errors...should we try again? I don’t know :(
Generally a good experience. Appetizers, drinks and crab cakes and flounder were excellent. Our waiter, Dino, was great. However, the sides were off. One of us had a potato gratin and the other had a spinach pastry. Both were greasy. It was extremely busy and we chalk those problems and greater noise than normal to that.
Dinner with friends - we did not feel rushed. Meals and service were excellent.
Went for a GNO dinner and we had a very enjoyable meal and a good time. It’s not a hipster bar; it’s a grown up restaurant. Mature clientele and atmosphere abound.
First of all, they have a good happy hour so look into that for good appetizers and cheaper drinks all week.
Bar is cozy with a good size bar, several tables and a nice room off the bar with seats and couches around a fireplace. Good, friendly table service and a atmosphere where we can talk and see the menu.
We had the Better Cheddar appetizer because you have to when you go there. It’s like crack. It was presented nicely with grapes and nice homemade crackers. So good and so addictive. We also had the calamari which was cooked correctly but I would have preferred a little more flavor in the sauce or coating.
Several of us had the NY Strip special which also had bacon and sour cream mashed potatoes and broccoli and kale. Very good. We all enjoyed it. Another friend had the halibut special and it was delicious. I tried it :). Fish was cooked perfectly. Crab cake and scallops were also on the menu. Crab cake was a good size, not a lot of filling and was enjoyed. Scallops were cooked perfectly and had a nice spicy seaweed salad.
I had the cheesecake which was homemade with raspberry sauce. It was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Chocolate torte and vanilla caramel salt gelato were also had and enjoyed.
