Enjoyed dining outside, weather was perfect; it was quiet, and server was attentive.

Seated on patio. Service was just ok. The evening was a half-off wine night but the bottle ordered was not available. Chose a higher priced wine. While management would not meet the price he offered a half-off a bottle during a future visit. My salmon was excellent. Fish tacos were mediocre.

Awesome! This was a fun evening with great food and evening capped on patio.

Everything was great, though our server smelled of smoke and it was obvious he was taking smoke breaks in between serving. Which wasn't a real issue other than that he was handling our drinking glasses and it was unclear if he was washing his hands in between as well. It wasn't a large distraction, but something we noticed. Other than that the server did do something odd in so much that my wife asked his recommendation between two dishes and he recommended a third dish of which she had no intention of getting. It wasn't mean spirited but unhelpful and slightly rude by ignoring her request. The server was very nice other than that, and was prompt.

The service unfortunately was extremely slow- waited over 75 minutes for our food, no water refill in the interim or offers of additional bread.

Our experience was very enjoyable! We all enjoyed our meals. My sweet potato fries were dry and tasteless. Our waitress was wonderful. She apologized for the potatoes and brought me a dessert. She was friendly and knowledgeable.
I will return😊

We love the ambiance of the patio but the food was terrible. I think the menu is not very interesting and the execution of the dishes was terrible. I don't think we'll go back unless its for a glass of wine.

We checked out the new summer menu was somewhat disappointed. The fish tacos item was very small for a dinner entree - more like an appetizer. They used to have a wonderful wedge salad but no longer. The burger (veal/elk?) was great, however.

A very good place for lunch - sat outside and enjoyed the patio. There is a varied menu and the prices for lunch are reasonable. We return there frequently.

The pear salad was great. The crab cakes, duck and everything salmon were excellent and the key lime pie was tart and delicious. Dining on the patio was what outdoor dining should be -comfortable and casual.

Drinks were good, soda was a bit stale, decent food selection, but food tasted par and not up to its price.

The scene at the hostess station gave a good indicator of the rest of the experience: a waiter/manager was berating the hostess for table bookings on the computer. I was then seated in the middle of a high traffic area, and was told I couldn't be moved. It took a long time to get a simple glass of water. The inattentive, slow service continued throughout dinner. I don't blame our waiter - he seemed overwhelmed. We could hear chaos in the kitchen and see chaos with waiters flying back and forth past our table, usually too fast to get their attention. The salads were good. The cedar planked salmon came with a sweet sauce on top that ruined the salmon. The side squash was boring. My friend's salmon on a southwest salad was very good. Many years ago when I lived in Chagrin, this was a favorite place to eat for great food, service and ambiance. This was my first time back in a while - maybe I caught it on a bad night, but I'd hesitate returning on my next visit.

We've eaten here a few times, and have always had a wonderful experience. This time was different. We had to ask the waiter about specials. He couldn't really tell us much about them. Both my husband and my entrees were cold, so we asked that they be reheated. The waiter was extremely apologetic, but it took an age for the reheated plates to arrive. In the meantime, our guests had nearly finished their food. Also had to ask for another glass of wine after I finished the first. Just very disappointed, and not sure we will return.

We had a very nice lunch. Great place to be outdoors. Got there after the rush so was quieter than normal.We both had salads which we enjoyed. Server seemed little distracted but was friendly and nice. Is a great place to sit outside when the weather is nice.Would go back and recommend to friends
