Service was good and friendly. We had reservations which may be the only way to get a table as the place isn't too large. Cheese plate was very small and pricey. The steak was not good . My friend had the same comment but thought it was an exception. I can tell you it was not. Just not a place for steak. My wife's sea bass was unimpressive. You are better off somewhere else.

The food was excellent, so hats off to the chef but the service was just ok. It was our anniversary which we noted in our reservation and not one word mentioning it. The hostess was not welcoming or friendly. If it wasn’t for the great food we probably wouldn’t return, we won’t return for a special occasion but maybe for just a night out without kids.

This was our first time here & it was our anniversary. Our waitress was lovely, one of the best servers we’ve ever had!
I was surprised that my steak did not come with a salad, it was an extra charge. My steak was half fat. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was way over seasoned as well was my husband’s salmon. The wine list was also way overpriced. In retrospect we should’ve said something, however our waitress was so wonderful. Close to the end of our dinner many of the staff was standing around as the last few diners were there. We left around 9:00 which I assume must be closing time as they were hovering & looking at us like “uh, it’s closung time”! Probably won’t ever return or recommend.

I had the three beef medallions with three different sauces. The smoked onion remoulade with the crab cake was outstanding. I ordered the beef medium rare and they were cooked perfectly. The potato parsnip cake was crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Delicious! The only thing I wished they would do would be to replace the greens in the sour sauce with the creamed spinach that they used to have on the middle medallion. They were too sour and hard to eat.
