Was my first time here. Sat in the protected outdoor area. It was comfortable, not too noisy, not to quiet. Live music was just perfect. Not too loud; and great choice of songs. There were some classic and favorite Italian options. I had a hard time deciding between the menu and specials - they all sounded some yummy. I chose the Fish Stew - absolutely delicious (though a bit expensive at $44). The Brownie/Ice Cream dessert was good, but most definitely NOT worth the $12 which is why I knocked off a star from the value.

Came by to check out the tomahawk tuesday special, what a pleasant surprise! The antipasto starter was wonderful. The steak was cooked perfectly and definitely enough for 2... it was huge. We skipped the lobster tails this time which gives us a reason to come back for the whole surf n turf experience.

We’ve been here a few times now and have consistently had a great experience. Great dining room, friendly service, delicious food. Had the steak for 2 and could not recommend it enough.

Amazing place. Needs more people to try it out. Great chef. Thoughtful engaging staff. Everything done well. Really hope it can sustain itself. It was a Wednesday in August and couldn’t have been a better place. Great interior to go with the food. Good place for friends and couples or a special night out. Just needs more people to create a better buzz.

To their credit, the whole staff and manager were lovely. We had a problem with my husband's dinner, it was sent back and came back not right again. Manager comped it as he should have ($50), was very kind and apologetic about it and didn't make us feel bad for complaining. I would give them another try as every place has an occasional night off (or dinner off!)

This was our first visit with our two daughters. We visited during Saturday night peak time so most tables were occupied. Probably too busy for the crew to handle the load. We waited over an hour for appetizers and then another hour for the entree to be served. The main dish - fish special - had the sauce cartelized from sitting on the heater for so long that it was rock solid and the rest of the food was glued to it. We did not reject the food as our kids were exhausted by the wait so we just bit the bullet. Not coming back soon.

We are a gay couple who went for a date at Christopher’s recently. Nobody said or did anything explicitly homophobic, and to their credit they did set up our table with us at corners next to each other (date-style) as opposed to across from each other. But we definitely felt that some of the wait staff were uncomfortable and did not know quite how to approach us. Again, nobody was mean or said anything bad. Just a general sense of “uuuuuh, what do I say?” It seemed weird in the 21st Century in a town with plenty of gay people. And while I can’t be certain, we have eaten at hundreds - possibly thousands - of restaurants without feeling this way, so don’t think we are being hypersensitive.

Food and service were superb. The preparation was top notch and there were many specials. I had the Wagyu filet mignon and it was extremely tender and flavorful. I would give a five star rating overall, except I was put off by an $8 charge on my bill for using a credit card! I have never encountered this. When your bill for two people comes to over $300, you shouldn’t be nickel and dimedl like this.

The owner and staff could not be any more helpful and making our evening enjoyable. They responded to our unhappiness with a party of rude and disrespectful women that could care less about other people. These ladies and I use that term very loosely created an atmosphere in which no one could hear one another without screaming. The staff responded Immediatelyand provided another table in a closed section of the restaurant . At first I was worried that perhaps we would not be taken care of in the usual manner which was not the case In fact they repeatedly went out of their way to make us feel comfortable at all times. People were great the food was great and we had a great time. Will return soon.

Poor management had to wait to get the drink orders had to ask the waiter sever times what happened to the drinks
The food order seemed to get lost in the kitchen
I asked the manager owner why it was taking so long to get our food and he said the kitchen is overwhelmed
He then told me he’d take care of us for dessert
I really only wanted our dinner order
It finally arrived after one hour of arrival
The management is truly not in sinc with the needs of the customer and the staff was not well trained
I’m sorry to say I will never return to such disorder
Of course he never “took care of dessert”
