I’m still thinking about the beet and goat cheese au gratin appetizer I had. It’s a 5-star experience every time, no matter what we order.

The atmosphere was good and we experienced excellent service. The food was good but not outstanding. The one chicken dish on the menu wasn’t available. The ribeye was mediocre, four out of six diners ordered it and no one was wowed. The desserts were the standouts of our meal. Kudos to the pastry chef.
We didn’t feel that the food overall was worthy of the price. Probably won’t go out of our way to eat here again.

Nice atmosphere; we had 4 people at a table. The food was good, but our server was a bit rude (rolled his eyes a lot and never smiled or helped bus people clear the table)

As always excellent! Especially enjoyed the tastes for an appetizer. The Redfish is superb as well as the lamb. The wine selection is perfect for any menu selection. Will return very soon.

Briefly, not impressed considering all the hype. I ordered lobster , they give you a dab of polenta under a small tAil and claws which had little lobster sweetness and flavor ,I was still hungry when I left . The spread ( bean and olive concoction ) and bread also lack any discernible flavor . My wife’s pasta was good . Not a huge portion. Overall Not a good value for what your .spending.

Thank you Dante for making my birthday with my friends special. It was my first time out with friends since COVID and I’m so happy I decided to give this place a try. The food was AMAZING and the staff was very accommodating with my hot water request. I subtracted a star for the gluten free peanut butter cheesecake. It was difficult to get around the processed taste. It was small but I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. Other than that, everything else was superb.

Superior food and service. Back room was too loud due to party of 16, but once moved to front dining room, noise level was acceptable. The food had “surprise” flavors that enhanced the experience. Superbly prepared and presented. Would highly recommend for an upscale dining experience.

First course was undercooked, side on second course was overcooked. For the price point, one hopes things are cooked to perfection. Maybe the kitchen was having a rough night. Service was outstanding as was the setting.

The atmosphere was horrible. I mean truly awful. I had to yell for my partner to hear me across the table. We were surrounded by people who drank one too many and were yelling profanities and talking about doing drugs. I was expecting a fairly quiet night and ended up at what might as well have been a sports bar. I got the 7 course vegan option. Some of it was decent food. One of the courses was a fried whole avocado (wtf?). A lot of the food was cold by the time it got to me. I ended up waiting an hour between the 5th and 6th course and was almost ready to leave. In total, I ended up at the restaurant for 4 hours which is ridiculous! I’ve been here before but this experience will make me never go back.
