Always delicious entrees and Happy Hour menu. A regular dining destination.
Wonderful food, attentive and friendly service.
Coming from the West Dundee location (boo boo) we were surprised by the size of this location. Everything was great!
Seated quickly for our reservation, service was great and the food very tasty. Nice that they offered 1992 pricing as a special for their anniversary.
The food and service were excellent as usual. Their dinners specials are always on point, with many options available. A regular customer we will remain.
One of the best restaurants in St Charles. Always the freshest ingredients delicious meals
Very accommodating waitstaff and bartender. Excellent food and ambiance.
Great food, great service, awesome drinks. Can't beat it!
Food was great and waiter made great suggestions on what to order. Wine was really good too.
Best fettuccine bolognese I’ve ever had! Mushroom risotto was excellent, as was the salmon with roasted cherry tomatoes. Dessert (profiteroles) were also great...choux pastry was chewy & flavorful, and chocolate sauce was a perfect complement to the house-made pistachio gelato. We will definitely return.
The Buffalo mozzarella appetizer, prosciutto Parmesan salad and lemon butter salmon were outstanding . The waiter saved us from getting a $53 Super Tuscan and instead referred us to a very nice $30 bottle of wine from Tuscany. He directed us to a lot of deliciousness!
As I have reviewed before, the portion size has really gotten small compared to previous visits.
I ordered my steak rare. It turned out to be medium. It tasted OK, so I did not send it back.
The food was good, and the service was great. My only complaint is the closeness of the tables. They have many tables squished together. It makes the room loud and less private; it feels like you are eating dinner with your neighbors.
Been many times prior and will be many times again. Had one of their best servers Jaime. He was busy but took care of us and did not rush - even though it was Valentine's day. Requested and got what we think is the best front room table. Only minus, folks next to us brought their kids and the girl kicked the bench seat for fun... not.
