The only thing positive about our meal was the service and the history of the building. I am extremely disappointed in our Valentine's Day dinner tonight. The prix fixe menu was very pricey compared to other restaurants in the area and definitely NOT worth a fraction of what we paid. The appetizer, a "jumbo" crab cake was small, tasteless, and still had many pieces of crab shells in it. The corn salsa that went under the crab cake was no better. The corn was soggy and unappetizing. The soup was disappointing as well. There was little to no beef in the "beef vegetable" soup and the potatoes were hard. The main course just continued to get worse. The potatoes that came with the surf and turf were hard, undercooked, and extremely bland. I could get better potatoes at Denny's. And then the pasta was bland, boring, and flavorless! If you are not going to season the meal, at least offer salt and pepper on the table. But does this place? Nope! To top off our already awful meal, the dessert cookie base was as hard as a rock. Completely inedible. We tried to use the end of our knives to break it apart, and it still wouldn't budge. I do not and will not ever recommend this restaurant. If you want even semi-decent quality food, look elsewhere.

Went mid week with good friends to celebrate a birthday. Nice variety on menu. I enjoyed the Risotto with Chicken, my wife had the grilled Salmon, the Birthday boy had Shrimp Pomordoro and his wife had the Duck. All meals were quite good and came out and were presented at one time by team members. That is always nice. Everything was hot and had good balanced flavors.

After dinner my friend was presented with a nice birthday treat of Drop Donuts with Ice cream and accompanied by a Sparkler. The donuts were amazing little morsels.

The venue is a bit on the loud side due to the high ceilings but we did not have any issue with the overall noise level. That might be different on a busier weekend evening.

Everything was great and we really enjoyed celebrating a birthday there! The Poke was amazing and I would highly recommend the truffle fries. The salmon dish was extremely salty - too much, hard to taste the actual fish. Everything else was excellent.

The food was delicious. I had the stuffed chicken breast. The issue I had was the price for what I got. The meal consisted of the chicken breast stuffed with spinach and artichokes on top of quite a bit of couscous. Again it was delicious and flavorful but for $24 I would like bread and soup or salad. I realize many restaurants offer these entrees without the sides but for me I would rather go elsewhere where I get more value for my money. Our server was very attentive and friendly, the decor is beautiful but it was extremely loud, making conversation for our group of 4 challenging.

I have never had a better steak in my life. It melted in my mouth. The wine was delicious, the appetizer so tasty and wow, the chocolate cake, a must have. We felt a little rushed by our waitress but overall a fabulous meal and we will be back.

A WARM AND GENUINE WELCOME MET US AT THE PODIUM AS WE BUNDLED OURSELVES INSIDE THE RESTAURANT. THE EVENING MANAGER AND GEORGIE SETTLED US AT OUR TABLE. JUST A FEW CUSTOMERS WERE THERE AT 6:30 BUT BY 7:30 THE PLACE WAS BUSTLING.
OUR ORDER WAS TAKEN AND MENU QUESTIONS ANSWERED. WHE I ASKED FOR A "HOT TODDIE" THE MGR. THOUGHTFULLY SUGGESTED AN IRISH CREME FLAVORED COFFEE - HOT AND COMFORTING FOR MY COUGH. HE EVEN ASKED IF I WANTED A SWIRL OF WHIPPED CREAM ON TOP? OUR DINNER CAME IN A TIMELY WAY, HOT AND DELICIOUS, AND WE ENJOYED A RELAXING EVENING. THE AMBIENCE, FRIENDLINESS, AND TASTY FOOD KEEP US COMING BACK, SO WE'LL BE BACK......SOON!!

I have had dinner here twice in the last week. Once with my husband and once with a group of friends. The food is so good. Both the pan seared tenderloin and the vegetable risotto were so flavorful. The drinks, appetizers and desserts and service were also top notch. Can’t wait to try the brunch.

I've been here before... For lunch and I enjoyed it. Dinner prices escalate! For goodness sake, put some lighting in the upstairs dining area! I've had restaurants where you couldn't read the menu without the flashlight app on your phone, but I couldn't even see my food! Hint, the tiny tea light doesn't help. I won't be going back for dinner anytime soon.

This is a really great, clean restaurant with excellent wait staff. We've dined here twice and expect to continue coming. They put a lot of care and consideration into the food prep and seem to use fresh ingredients whenever possible. Nothing is overdone and portions are just the right size--not too big, not too small. I've found there are a good number of menu options for anyone dealing with dietary restrictions. I definitely recommend making it a dining destination.

Our first stop at the small bar while they got our table ready set our expectations really high, with a friendly, accomplished bartender who crafted the best cocktails we've had. Premium ingredients without a premium price. Our dinner that followed was perfect in every way. Our waitress, Winsome, was attentive, well informed and fun!

Might be our favorite spot from now on!

We ate here for the first time for our New Year’s Eve dinner. It was amazing! We will be going back. I have no idea why we waited so long to go here. My husband has a dairy allergy and I’m gluten free and they were able to make us a tasty interesting meal. When we arrived and I saw that there was a set meal for the evening I was worried but they came through! I did let them know when I made the reservation in open table of our food allergies and our waitress was prepared and helped us with our options. I look forward to going back. They even had a complimentary drink to help celebrate the New Year. Nice perk!
