Love the restaurant it will be one of me and my husbands go to for a nice outing. It was my birthday and I was treated like a celebrity. The hostess let’s me choose my own table to seat at. We had reservation. The whole dining experience was wonderful 5 star treatment. And the cotton candy at the end was a speacial treat.

The food was terrific. We had the octopus as a starter. For our main entree we shared the bison tenderloin with a couple of sides. Everything was very tasty and exceeded expectations. Our server, Lou, was prompt and professional and very personable. I would go back to this establishment at the drop of a hat.

My wife and I went for a dinner date. We had some good and not so good experiences. The decor and ambiance were very nice. My wife liked and was curious about the buffalo and Native American decor. The smoked catfish dip was excellent as well as our cocktails. Our server did a good job of answering our menu questions and making suggestions. I ordered the pork belly pasta dish and my wife ordered the halibut with a second choice of the snapper. The first problem occurred when the server said they were low on the halibut. Instead of telling us they were out the server thought she would surprise us with what is served. Next we had about a 30 minute wait for our entrees. Our server did apologize for the delay. My wife did receive the snapper which was served sizzling for other patrons but not for my wife. Also my pasta was not served as hot as I prefer for pasta dishes. Our entrees were good but I think my wife would have preferred the halibut. We tried to order the bourbon pecan pie for dessert but they were sold out. We pondered if that would have occurred if the kitchen was faster with our entrees. We were offered a complimentary scoop of gelato. We asked for one a piece and received just one. My wife had some discontent by that point. In all not a horrible experience (any time out with my wife is cherished) but I’ve had more positive experiences at other restaurants of that tier.

Hoped for a better experience for the price. Felt the food and service were just average. Would recommend small plates at the bar with cocktails. Great spirits selection. Dinner in the main restaurant just not what we expected.

We were celebrating an early Valentine’s Day and I’m glad we celebrated here. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was unique to say the least and the service was excellent.
