Overall we had a great dinner experience. I’m not sure if it’s apart of their serving but we didn’t receive bread.

We had a wonderful experience in that tables were at socially acceptable distances and we were fortunate enough to get a nice table in the corner up by the window. Four of us dined and the food was deliciously prepared and courses timed just perfectly. Cocktails were reasonably priced and they had an array of specialty drinks available. Our waitress was very attentive and there for our needs. This is the second time we've dined here and would certainly recommend it and go back for another great experience!

The perfect place for a ladies luncheon! The restaurant was quiet and the food, service and setting was excellent overall on all counts!

We had a party of 5 and they were nice enough to allow us to add an extra chair - because it was quiet - otherwise that may not have worked out due to all the 'distancing' required now in all the restaurants!

All of the staff were wearing their masks correctly and it was a pleasant and memorable lunch.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

What a wonderful evening. Setting, drinks and food were amazing. Our waitress was amazing, staying past her shift to ensure we had a good time. She definitely made our dining experience oh so much better. Couldn't of had a better time. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a great dining experience with their friends.

I was in Brighton for a work conference. I decided to sit at the bar even though I made a reservation because I didn't want to take up a table for one person. The bar tender seemed less than enthused to wait on a single woman, even though she only had two couples sitting at the bar just having drinks. I sat there for 5 minutes before she even acknowledged me. I told her right off the back that I wanted the filet mignon because I looked up there menu before I made a reservation. She said ok and asked what I wanted to drink. I asked her if there were any drink specials or if she had a favorite red wine to pair with the filet. She rolled her eyes and handed. Me a drink menu. 15 minutes later she came back and asked if I FINALLY made up my mind. I pointed out the wine I wanted and asked if it was any good. My bad! she started to walk away and said let me get someone else who knows. The girl she brought over said it was an excellent choice so I ordered it. An hour goes by and I still don't have my dinner. The bartender comes over and says, "are you going to order or not?!" I said I already ordered an hour ago. She replied well we started talking about drinks and you weren't for sure so I don't know. ?? I still want the filet, med rare. She brought me another glass of wine and said since your waiting. 20 minutes later my steak came out raw! At this point I was exhausted and beyond annoyed. I traveled 3 hours after working a 13 hour shift as a nurse. I sat down at 7:25 and my dinner came at 9:05. The bartender went to the kitchen to look for a togo order I'm sure she forgot to put in because she was gone for 15 minutes. When she came back she asked what was wrong and I showed her the steak. She agreed it was way under cooked and took it to her manager. The whole meal was comped and I told her I would still pay for half of it because I ate the sides but she insisted. I payed for the wine and tipped $18 bc things happen. Needless to say I was highly disappointed.

This restaurant it wonderful. We had a reservation but got there a bit early and had a drink at the bar. The bartenders were super nice and friendly. Once seated, the appetizers were very tasty (I strongly recommend the roasted garlic and boursin cheese place...super yummy). Everyone's meals were really delicious. Thumbs up for sure!

The only complaint that I have is they gave our reservation to someone else. Luckily we were able to be seated at another table right away. Recommend checking ID for open table reservations.

Overall our experience was very good. We did have a few minor negatives...we felt a little rushed to order our entrees by our server. She came to our table twice in a short span of time to ask about ordering our apps/entrees when we clearly were still looking over the menu. My entree of pot roast was wonderful and good portion size. My husband's shrimp and scallops pasta was very good too however, it states the entree has prawns but they were really medium sized shrimp and it comes with nothing else so my husband had to order & pay extra for a small salad so slightly disappointing.

A beautiful day for lunch outside with friends...that is until the party at the next table brought the dog......

Who was not well behaved and barked loudly at every other passing dog...some kids and generally ruined what could have been a very pleasant afternoon.

I know it is not your responsibility to control all of your patrons, but I for one will not be sitting outside again - ever. Had I known that the dog would essentially ruin the afternoon for myself and my friends and no doubt everyone else sitting within ear shot I would have asked to move inside...utter chaos...

Other than that, the food was great, service was a bit slow as it seemed there was an understaffing issue - perhaps? It was a busy day so it's hard to say...but service suffered.

Ultimately though I think everyone sitting near the barking dog must have suffered as well...

I just don't understand why Fido couldn't stay home for a couple of hours while his family goes out for lunch???

Thank you!
