Waitor was amazing, as was the food! We had set up a reservation to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary, which was noted in the reservation itself. There was no ask or mention of what we were celebrating and when we got there 3 minutes past our reservation time (we had to wait for our sitter), we were told there were no booths available and that it would be about a 20 minute wait. While the service and food were OUTSTANDING, we were a bit disappointed to be treated as if we had walked off the street with no reservation.

Everything was excellent since the moment you walked in. The host and hostess were outstanding, we had a small wait but we were early for our reservation and the small wait we did have we were checked on very frequently, nice feeling! Our waitress was super nice and energetic and made our anniversary much more spectacular. Overall great experience!!

Service was exceptional as we’ve come to expect. The greeters, front end manager and wait staff were top-notch. The kitchen, it seems, has fallen off a bit. The beef tenderloin, previously a highly enjoyable dish, was overcooked. Another member of our group had the rack of lamb and said it was almost inedible. The chicken piccata and lobster fettuccine saved the meal from being a total loss. The significantly reduced number of offerings on the menu was a disappointment.

It was good, had cousin in town. My only suggestion is to serve more butter with the bread. Server always disappears after bringing it on til food is served.

We dined here for our 10th anniversary, and Jen was our server. She was very helpful in which wines to try, as well as recommendations on food. She brought us a special treat for dessert and it was like nothing I've ever had before! Amazing! This will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants!
