Food is excellent as in my previous visit. The server we had was training and was not that attentive. She did not check back at end of the meal. I had to flag her down to ask about dessert. She was involved in other tasks - i.e. drying bar glasses.

Last time we ate here - 5 stars...this time - 1 star. Abbreviated menu due to recent chef change. Limited entre choices, only 1 choice for dessert. Entres were extremely salty...unable to finish one. Service was pleasant and professional, but inattentive at times.

I would love to share an experience. However, when my business partner and I arrived for our brunch reservations. We were told they were closed for a private party.
There must be a way to let Open Table know when they are closed. This was a frustrating experience, because we can only meet once a month. And this was also a birthday celebration for the two of us. When we meet, we try a different restaurant each time. So we can support other local businesses.

Always remember to ask what’s in every dish when you have allergies! We ordered the dip trio and who knew they put crab meat in the spinach artichoke dip?! Well the waiter didn’t either! Bet he learned his lesson because that could’ve went real bad lol everything was fabulous tho!

The lighting was very nice, and we enjoyed the atmosphere on the 2nd level. The food was very good. Upscale, but not a budget-buster...

Texture of the Strip steak was tough and not edible but flavor on outside was amazing. The chocolate mouse was dry and hard. Other food was great! Server was also the bartender ( we sat at a table not the bar) and not very good. Apps came before he took our drink order.

Our meal was excellent. I love the apple salad (wish it was bigger), and the shrimp & scallop risotto entree is amazing. It was served with green beans but would be better with asparagus (our server said it usually comes with asparagus). I love the atmosphere and decor, and the music is just right in the background. All food is very high quality.

We really enjoyed the food and service. The food was wonderful! The noise level was very high at times. There should be something done upstairs to absorb the sound especially when there are large groups. Otherwise, really enjoyed the evening. Noted on reservation that was celebrating a birthday but it was not mentioned.

Never disappointing, food and drink worth the calories. 😀 Server was attentive. Also met my request to have a table on first floor due to a patrons limited availability on stairs. It was the first experience with one guest and he was impressed.
