I had a fantastic meal! My favorite part of the meal was the pace. We had a relaxing meal and enjoyed the owner Benny working the dining floor. He knows his business and was aware of all the patrons.
Server was amazing. Great guy. The entrees came before the appetizers, which is never ideal.
Excellent white tablecloth restaurant - in our opinion, the best place in Scranton.
Good experience. Benny and his staff were outstanding. Steak was very good
Service was great and restaurant was clean. Food was ok but overpriced and portions weee small for price.
I was very disappointed in the sea bass. It was tough and no seasoning. For 35 dollars I expected better
We were promptly seated at our table, and the service was great all night. Our server Alyssa was fantastic. The mushroom ravioli was delicious! Wish we could have stayed for dessert but our son was being fussy at home with the sitter - definitely will be back!
Experience was great! Food, service and atmosphere was great!
Great restaurant! Great staff! Great food. We enjoy this place.
Restaurant was very busy, and had a nice atmosphere. The food tasted frozen and not fresh. The calamari was soggy with very little sauce, and the sea bass was fishy and underdone. The bread was somewhat blah and stale tasting. Not a great experience! This is the first time I have ever written a review like this for a restaurant. Very disappointed for a birthday meal.
Excellent dinner and service! Really enjoyed the restaurant.
Been here several times. Excellent food Great friendly staff
Outstanding service ! Food cooked perfectly as described on menu. All 4?of us were happy with our choices (3 seafood and 1 steak). Owner was very present and gracious.
Great location to the Scranton cultural center. Was sat right away. Reservation required. They where very busy. We had app. Main course and a shared dessert no drinks. Just water. With tip was about $70 per person. Great for a special night out.
Benny and his staff shine
There were bugs in our drinks to start…the waiter was very nice and comped our replacement beverages….the food was terrible …I ordered scallops with a bacon slab (which turned out to be a thick slice of bacon) it was swimming in grease….the scallop was perfectly cooked however….we also ordered the creamed spinach and Mac and cheese …they were inedible …all we could taste in each of the 2 sides was flour, butter and salt…we left there unsatisfied and disappointed that we basically wasted $200 on a crappy meal…we definitely won’t be back
Located in downtown Scranton, across from Courthouse Square. Parking meters went off at 5 pm, so parking was not a problem. Divided into 2 sections, a bar area with about 8 tables, and a separate dining room with 8 socially distanced tables. Prices are comparable with other similar nearby restaurants. They had sold out of the onion soup by 7 pm on a Saturday, which was unexpected. Instead, we had the New England clam chowder, which was tasty, without any of the usual overabundance of potatoes, but with clams diced so small as to be unrecognizable, visually or by taste. The veal porterhouse chop was outstanding, nicely seasoned, and larger than expected. I ordered it cooked medium, which it was except just by the bone. My companion had the swordfish special, which he also felt was outstanding. There is a good selection of wines by the glass. We skipped the dessert course. Service was attentive. Overall, we felt that this was a nice addition to the Scranton dining scene and will be going back.
My steak was not cooked correctly and was sad to say raw in the middle, when I informed my server ( a girl ) she said the chef wouldn’t take it back to fix. I was more then upset and taken back by this.
Very nice evening with friends & family. 6 of us at a round table with great service. Just the right amount of time between cocktails, appetizers, salad, entree & desert. Then a nice Sambucca for a nightcap. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic menu that delivered an excellent experience of fine dining. The wait staff was exceptional..... I was blown away. I will be back.
Great food, nice service. We will be back!,,
Great food! Great service! Best new place in Scranton.
excellent and efficient service at a fair price. sleep up the good work.
Catching up with a friend - you can always count on this this restaurant to have consistent service quality and food. Awesome a pleasure to dine here
Outstanding food and service. Would definitely go back.
The steak was great but I didn’t like how they served it with potatoes chips, homemade or not. It’s a great cut of meat and cheapens it when it doesn’t have a nice side of mashed potatoes or baked even. None on the menu.
Excellent food and service, yet again! We’ll be back!
Everything was excellent, the filet was perfect. It comes with homemade chips (yum) and I chose the Mac and Cheese side as well. Great choice. The others had branzino and the gnocchi special. Calamari and salads equally nice. We will definitely return. The bartender, Bobby, was top rate and made a great martini. Benny has another top restaurant here in Scranton.
Excellent restaurant. definitely go. Little slow but we weren't in a hurry and thete was a reunion party there as well.
Had a great meal with my wife Friday October 22, 2021. I had the seafood paella (lots of seafood) & she had the filet. My wife is fussy, she asked for medium rare and the meat came out perfect! Then we shared creamed spinach and mac & cheese. Decent cabernet sav wine selection. Super service, nice pace & not rushed. Dined for 2.5 hours, very enjoyable evening.
i had the seared scallops over a thick slice of bacon, all over sautéed spinach. amazing!!
cant wait yo return!
Our first time and it was delicious.
First time at this restaurant. Wonderful food and atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
good food, good variety of choices, excellent service.
But overall it was too rushed
We were asked three times if we are ready to order food - and we hadn’t even been served our drinks yet.
Then our entrée was delivered before we even finished that drink.
Food is excellent.
But it’s not a fast food joint.
at the prices you should be allowed to enjoy your dining experience
I will definitely go back, but I will More diligent about controlling the pace of the meal
Excellent, excellent, excellent! The service, the food and desserts! Table of six, perfect special occasion dining experience for all.
Not my first time here but it’s just as amazing as always. Great service, incredible food, and amazing atmosphere. The food is expensive, but fairly priced for the quality that you’re getting and the exceptional flavor the chefs bring out of every dish. I can’t recommend this place enough for those special occasions or if you’re trying to wow your date (which I did).
Our family had an absolutely wonderful experience. The food was cooked perfectly and the service was excellent.
Great experience all around. We knew it would be good the minute we walked in, smelled amazing. Enjoyed a great time with son on Parents weekend. Highly recommend this new hidden gem restaurant.
My boyfriend and I had dinner the other night and we truly enjoyed ourselves! The food was perfect and the service matched. We will be back.
