    We sat on the terrace on this beautiful day, it couldn’t have been more perfect! Pete was our server, he’s also a bartender, and he’s the consummate professional. We could not have had a better experience, & will always try to come when we can have Pete as our server/bartender! If it’s possible for you, I highly recommend it!!!

    Could tell it was chaotic for Mother’s Day but both filets at our table came out raw, when asked to be taken back it wasn’t an issue but there wasn’t anything really done to make it right.

    Normally a wondeful place to go, but on Mother's Day, I ordered a dish that list sunny-side eggs on the menu. I ordered scrambled, and I thought the waiter said OK, but when th sunny-side eggs arrive I was ,curtly, told - sorry no substitutions today, The dish was steak and eggs. There was another dish on the menu featuring scrambled eggs, so I don't understand the issue. The steak was delicious, but I hate sunny-side eggs. So the meal ended up being a downer. Disappointing from a restaurant that so often delivers. Maybe chalk it up to a one off

    Kitchen could not get food out in an acceptable timeframe. Fish soup had little flavor and even less actual fish and was served warm at best. Ended up leaving after a little over an hour and a half as entrees were still not out and waiter could not say when they would be.

    Food took a long time to come out. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t great either. Noise level was crazy. I wasn’t expecting it to be silent or to have the food instantly. I understand it was a holiday. But still. Staff accordingly then.

    There was a squirrel in the vent above our table. They moved us but didn’t seem too concerned about us after move. We also saw them sit someone else at that table later.

    Food was wonderful. Had the delicious brussels sprout salad special and Devils on Horseback stuffed dates for appetizers. For our entrees we had the roast duck and sea callops which were cooked to perfection. I mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary when I made the reservation and the maître d' and wait staff congratulated us and gave us complimentary glasses of champagne which was such a nice and thoughtful touch! They even printed "Happy Anniversary" on the specials menu which was so sweet. Dessert was delicious...we had the warm apple crisp with a latte and cappucino which was perfectly hot. The service was attentive and the wait staff were so nice. Thank you for a great anniversary evening!

    If you’re going to open for lunch, don’t force people to sit in the bar area with insufficient table size. Do it right or don’t do it.
