Hubby and I came here last night for our first time. Had a reservation for 9:30pm but the hostess was waiting for folks to leave so we sat at the bar. Thankful we did as it gave us time to speak with the wonderful men behind the counter. He gave us the run down of specials and favorites.

We shared the portobello mushroom with spinach and cheese. I had the rib eye cap. He has the lamb chops. And we finished with the chocolate cake. Everything was delish!! Ambiance was great. Service was great. It's a small cozy intimate restaurant with a live pianist on a keyboard.

We would definitely come back.

We really enjoyed the food and the service was exceptional. We tried a few different appetizers and split an entree and dessert and it was plenty for both of us. Waiter was very friendly and recommended items that were on par with our taste. It's a small place, so don't recommend for large groups, but good for small groups and a nice place for date night.

The lamb chops were the best I've ever had. The sommelier was great and ego-free. When we didn't like a pairing he suggested, he quickly switched it out without attitude and/ or questions.

Amazing! From the service to the food to everything else. It was quite pricey since they had a set menu for Valentine’s Day but everything was really really amazing.
