Made reservations 3 weeks in advanced for dinner at 5:30. After being seated 10 min later we were notified they were out of most of their menu selections. Very upsetting we decided to leave ....

Quite possibly had the best French dip I’ve ever had. The jalapeño jelly was amazing for the duck sandwich and for the first time ever, the truffle fries were not overdosed in truffle. I highly recommend for any sort of pre-night out meal.

Fun time and great restaurant. Server was good, but good took much longer than we were told and we were on a tight timeline to get to a show.

We made reservations for New Year’s Eve with parents and fiancé. Sever was pleasant and made drink recommendations. Ordered appetizers and our meal selections. I specifically said not to rush the meal as we wanted to enjoy the appetizers, salads and main course. Shortly after the appetizers arrived, the main course meal was delivered and last the salads. The manager apologized and said it was a kitchen mistake and comped the appetizers. It wasn’t the slow enjoyable meal we planned, but the food was good and the manager took responsibility.

We were heading to a show that night and found out they offer a discount by showing our ticket. Service was excellent. Kara was friendly, prompt and very knowledgeable about the menu selections. Thanks for a good evening.

Very disappointing. Service very bad. After ordering drinks it took over ten minutes to get them. Server disappeared and had to track him down so we could order dinner. My friends dinner came after a rather long wait. My entree did not arrive until 15 minutes later after my friends had already consumed their dinners. I refused my dinner since it came so late and left not enough time to go to our next location for a concert. Waiter was very indignant and said it was not his fault. He made some snarky remark and huffed off. Manager came over a bit later
and I explained. She took mine off the bill. However, after we explained to her we needed to leave we had to wait another ten minutes to get our bill. By the way my friends said their meal was barely warm when it arrived.
Used to go here many times but will not return.

Service & ambiance good. Food was so-so. Enjoyed sitting outside. I ordered the skillet salad. Expected a skillet, or at least grilled food. Was not what I expected. My friend ordered the salmon salad and was disappointed. Server and service were fine. But food could have been better.
