Sat 12/15 3:30pm reservation seated immediately, restaurant was empty. Friendly host staff. Sat down was handed the dinner menu, Requested the lunch menu. Ordered one of their specials bit pricey. Good food, outstanding service from our waitress Eileen. Delightful personality. Enjoyable dining experience.

We went there for their Sunday brunch. It was fabulous! The food was delicious, our server was courteous and helpful and went over the top to make our experience wonderful. The restaurant is beautifully decorated for Christmas and the ambiance was wonderful. Make a reservation if you want to go on a Sunday for brunch as every single table was full. Can't wait to go back. The people in the table next to us were so very rude to their server that it really made us appreciate how hard they work and how gracious they remained to these awful people. I would highly recommend this restaurant for their service and attention to detail. ( Note - The Beef Wellington isn't available till 3:00) but well worth the wait!

Great food and service. Like always good service starts from the top. I forgot to request our fav table for dinner and once the Hostess found out she deployed Manager who accommodated our desires. Busy evening yet everybody was attentive. And braised short ribs to die for!

Party of seven to celebrate a retirement (stayed in my open table res, along with “one diner needs to eat gluten free”). Friday night, 7pm, very busy. Service was friendly but slow (it’s ok we had wine). Food was good but over priced. Gluten free diner ordered a baked cheese appetizer and was given two slices of gluten free sandwich bread, instead of a roll. I think this was really a poor choice for what is a nicer restaurant. Other than that, no problems and I would return.

A native Chicagoan, I actually live in Paris, France now. With that in mind, I feel dishes such as the sole and grandma's chicken are true to what you'd find overseas. The ambiance is cozy, our server (even though he just completed training) was professional, prompt, and friendly! My only comment would be the lack of greens in the avocado and kale "salad." While the salmon was delicious, there was only about 20 leaves of baby spinach, so it felt more like a salmon entree than salad.

Outstanding evening. Perfect in all ways. Food is very good. Skate is always wonderful. Wait staff was excellent. We enjoy conversation, nice wine, great appetizer, outstanding soup, delicious entree and nice ending with desert. Festive with Christmas decorations up. Both of us enjoyed our dining experience and felt like we had a special date dining on an evening that we will want us to return as soon as we can since we live four hours away. Thank you.

Very disappointing, perhaps because it followed a holiday when the restaurant was closed? Food came out lukewarm, server disappeared after the entrees were served , we were never offered refills on coffee after the first request, the chocolate mousse was extremely grainy. I think it was not the best day to have lunch there. Great bus boy service!

Good food and service, as always, but this time the manager (Dave) went above and beyond: First, he came to our table and apologized for a mistake in our order; Second, he did not charge us for my filet mignon after the mistake; and Third, he threw in a dessert on the house just for good measure - all of which made for a memorable evening.
