Although the reservation [via Open Table] contained a request for gluten-free dining - and that was the end result - the waiter was obviously irritated at the prospect, complaining to his supervisor. Unfortunate, because the food was excellent.

We come here often and especially enjoyed dining in the enclosed patio room. It was much quieter than the main dining room. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. We also enjoyed the jazz.

We had a wonderful waitress who took very good care of us. Atmosphere was great as well as the food and overall experience. We will definitely return in the near future.

We went 2 days after Valentines day on a Friday evening with an open table reservation for 7:00pm and we're seated by 7:30pm. Our service was excellent. We had wine, a shrimp appetizer, my wife had the scallops, wonderfully grilled, and I had the cedar plant salmon.
Sarah was our waitress and we had a wonderful meal.

Prompt and knowledgeable service. Overall food quality was fresh. Scallops were great, the Mahi-mahi was great and the bread pudding was to die for!

Good whiskey list, live music was a nice touch. Premium whiskey and scotches are cheap.
