Honestly - The food wasn't the best. I have been here several times in the past and the food was much better. I had the Chicken Marsala and the sauce was watery it was too thin.

Not even sure where to begin. We had a 7:30 reservation. When we arrived, we, along with 8 other diners who arrived after us, waited 15 minutes before we were even acknowledged. When we finally were sat at 7:55pm we waited another 15 minutes for our server to greet us. I finally got up from our table, found the manager, and explained how long we waited for our table and the lengthy wait for our server. The food was subpar - service was non attentive - asking for bread and never receiving it, ordering a bottle of wine and they brought us the incorrect bottle. A true let down from the time we walked in until the time that we left.

Holiday dinner, everything started off great! When the main dishes arrived the potatoes were not cooked, vegetables tasted bad, the eggplant tasted like someone dumped salt all over it, lasagna noodles were no cooked, chicken piccata was a little rubbery. For the price we thought that the food was going to be amazing. Very disappointed.

We made reservations for Christmas Eve since we didn’t want to take a chance without one. The service was impeccable as was the food. Best lobster bisque I’ve ever had. I had the gnocchi which was really yummy. Our table also had the filet and the prime rib, which was thoroughly enjoyed. Will definitely be back. Oh and the tiramisu was delicious as well as the cheese cake. Thanks for making our Christmas Eve a delight.

Calamari was so chewy and looked like fish sticks not sure why, lobster bisque was too thick which is very uncommon, and the shrimp scampi was too charred and bland. Overall basic over priced bland tasteless food

The food was good…not great. Had a reservation but our table wasn’t ready for at least 15 minutes…they were super busy so not a big deal. We were seated near the bar and there was a singer. The volume was WAY too loud, even more-so when she went on break and piped music through the PA. I was there on a date, and it made it difficult to talk. We were seated at a wobbly outdoor grated metal table with a table cloth on it that had clearly been stuffed in there to make more seating, so it wasn’t very comfortable. Overall, just poorly done on the ambiance.

Crappy Italian food. The calamari is a rip off from J. Baldwin’s with no taste. I ordered the gnocchi in cream sauce. The cream sauce is white, watery tasteless with little bits of sausage floating in it. The gnocchi was tender but looked horrendous floating in a bath of tasteless white water. My son ordered the ravioli. The tomato sauce had a Chef Boy Ardee taste. Atmosphere is poor. The chef needs to be fired, menu redone with a new more adventurous chef.

The food was very good and our waitress was friendly & attentive.
However, both my friend and I felt we were in the way. We sat at a very small table against a pole/column in the midst of larger parties. At one point, they broke down tables and carried them out almost over our heads. We both felt very rushed from one course to another. We both have dined at various high end restaurants and have never felt this way... ever.
Again, the food was very good and wait staff were attentive, but it was not the dining experience we expected for a Christmas evening with friends.
We had made a reservation, but it seemed like we were expected to sit in the bar area as they had to setup a table for us which probably explains the small table by the pole/column. It was just very disappointing.

This was the fastest dinner I ever had. Very rushed, out in less than 40 minutes. Food was so-so. Walleye was good. 8 ounce steak was no more than 6. Accompaniments were over cooked. Salads were skimpy. Atmosphere was very dark.

Lobster bisque was outstanding, my husband's Filet was perfectly done, as was my chicken dish. Came here with my sisters a few years ago, and I'm pleased to say its still great. It was for my birthday this year. Thanks for a lovely meal. I must sat the noise level was caused by an unruly diner, who was very loud and boisterous. But thats not your problem.
