Perfect atmosphere and setting for a romantic evening. The service was superb, very personable and willing to please. The food was a little disappointing. Both the petit filet and salmon were cooked a bit much, hence dry. I have been before and this was not the case. The side dishes were great; the mango cheesecake was amazing! Will definitely return.

Dinner included Short Rib Bourguignon, Petite Filet and Chicken Pesto Pasta. Ribs were very good, chicken pesto was very good. Petite filet was a nice cut of beef, but lacked flavor from the grill. Wine list prices were high. Cocktail menu limited. Desserts were far and away the best part of the meal. Would return for dessert.

Good, not excellent but not bad. We may come back. Dessert was maybe the weakest part of the meal. Service was ok not great through the meal, they brought the check before we asked and before we finished our dessert. Hostess was very cold to start, warmed up during the evening.

I had customers from Hong Kong so we had varied palates to please. We loved the high quality of food preparation - kudos to chef! Our service was amazing and ambiance was spot on. They especially loved the "cozy" feel. I think the noise level could get high if there were a gregarious group, but it was absolutely perfect for our dinner. I will definitely return with friends, family, and customers.

There was no one to greet us when we went in and seating was slow even though we had reservations. We were finally seated a foot away from another table (it was Valentines Day) and when I asked to be seated at another table that was open, the matre di audibly grumbled, huffed and puffed...but did finally reseat is. Fortunately the food was great although super expensive! $49 for a small portion of sea bass.

Filet mignon was cooked to perfection! Be sure to save room for dessert! The creme brûlée is delicious, as well as the bread pudding!

The food was not overly inventive but very tasty. It had a cozy atmosphere and was nice for conversation. As a wine lover and collector, I thought the wine list was overpriced, with a much higher markup that it deserved.

Soon as we arrived ( on time ) short guy did the head move, I guess his way of saying hello! We had the mussels for our appetizer & they were terrible, the meal followed & the same terrible, there were only three tables being served & had to go to the bar to refill a glass of wine! The waitress was the rudest, don’t see how she maintains a job working with the public. We won’t be back or recommend this place.

Used OpenTable for reservation. Very pleased with communication. This is a pricy restaurant so expected linens on the table, and for the price, not a paper napkin. Would have appreciated fresh flowers or candles. Although mentioned special birthday occasion, no note was made of it. Very disappointed for the restaurant that they had so few customers. Still, food, bar and service, all were excellent. Wouldn’t have hurt to have the wait staff smile. We were there for the food, and it did not disappoint!

We loved our meal! The only complaint was the couscous was a bit clumpy and flavorless, otherwise everything was amazing. Short ribs were to die for, and my husband enjoyed his petit filet. Chocolate bread pudding wasn’t what I was expecting, but still delish nonetheless. Can’t wait to return!

Food was okay. Would not go back to sit indoors. The patio looks amazing but it’s closed for the season at the moment. They said they could make any kind of cocktail but I wish they had a cocktail menu. They just have a wine list. Server was very friendly though. Would like to return in the warmer months for the patio.

The food was exquisite. We had Brie and crab cakes as appetizers. We both got the short ribs as an entree and we had the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. My only criticism was that they don’t serve bread while you’re waiting and I think regular bread pudding would be better than chocolate. Overall it was really good and I would go back.
