    As always, the food is excellent. I had the spaghetti with meatballs. Those mini meatballs are so delicate, tender and juicy. The texture and flavor were just perfect. My date had penny pasta with marinara and enjoyed it thoroughly. For dessert, we got the cheesecake, cake. it was made like a crème brûlée and fit the bill. Perfect. And would help bring. Everything together was drinking the sangria.. Just be careful cause you will leave there a little tipsy.

    This was our first time dining here and all 4 of us were absolutely delighted. Three of us had the pecan-crusted salmon and highly recommend it. Our guest had the pasta bolognaise and loved it. We all enjoyed the crispy portobello mushroom appetizer and our (alcohol-free) drinks--the lavender lemonade and the refreshing ice tea. We chose to eat in the outside seating at night, but overhead heaters kept us comfy. We all agreed this restaurant is a keeper.

    Good food. Very filling. The seats were good and felt good , ate a lot of food. The service was ok. They waitress checked on us until she left for break without letting us know so we had to wait a little longer for the little things but it was all good

    Food was very good, Jessica's service was as well. Atmosphere excellent for a business dinner. Disappointed that the ribeye was $71. Too expensive. Same with a glass of Faust Cabernet Sauvignon at $43 I believe. A nice wine but a bottle in the store is $55. I get the nice glassware, etc. that goes into a restaurant's costs but that's egregious too. Be prepared to overpay for your evening. A reluctant recommendation.

    I had an excellent lobster-filled ravioli, an excellent cocktail, and finished my meal off with a very good panna cote. The service was also excellent. A great place to celebrate the new year.
