I was in town for a horse show and my husband drove down from Cincinnati for a date night. The food was very good! I had the Procini Dry Rub Filet and my husband had the Pork Rib Chop. We both agreed we'd order both entrees again. They were out of the wine we wanted, but had a close second. Service was slow, but friendly.

This is a superb restaurant. Their cocktails are sublime and the menu is upscale without being pretentious. We ate here before the Paul McCartney concert and they efficiently handled our dinner without rushing us. The server was friendly, but had been hired just for that night, so he didn’t know much about the menu. We will definitely be back.

Went for brunch on Saturday @ 12:30 with 6 ppl. because open table listed it as having brunch. There was only two other tables there. Once we sat down I asked for the breakfast/ brunch menu and was told that they don’t have brunch. The girl said they haven’t had it since she started working there .:( Sad but I thought I’ll have a cocktail & sandwich and all will be good. Ordered a cocktail only to be told that they don’t have a bartender and she doesn’t know how to make any of the drinks!! ??? I have been there for dinner and it has been outstanding. But this was utterly disappointing!

Our Server Daniel made the night along with the Chef❤ The food was Sublime, such balanced flavors in all of the dishes. The Beef Fillet was done perfectly and the acoutrements were to die for. The shavings of country ham provided the crunch and saltiness for the dish layered on top of the sweetness of the Japanese yam. Wow! Daniel our server made a special cocktail of Mezcal for my husband❤ is now his favorite! We Christined it "Daniel's Last Word" cocktail!😀
A great night Thank you Daniel for making a special effort to provide a great Birthday evening for my Husband.

I liked the classy look of the restaurant but personally, I would not return to try other dishes. The braised rabbit had little flavor unless you tried it with the gravy. Even then, the gravy overpowered all other flavors. On the other hand, the caramel chocolate tart was fantastic! The service was also very kind and timely.

Have to say I am sad that the Gratz Park Inn is now a modern hotel, but the restaurant is still amazing.

Outstanding NY strip and rabbit stew. We loved it! Heavy pour on our cocktails, we appreciated it. The desert, not much to it. There is a reason they give you a small spoon. Can't wait to go back.
