Try the lobster mac and cheese or sweet crab - amazing! Also great steaks and cocktails, e.g. Purple Rain.

So, I don’t usually write reviews. However, it was our anniversary and I made reservations weeks prior too.

When we arrived our table wasn’t ready and we waited 30-45 mins for our table to be ready.

This is for a reservation that was made 2-4 weeks in advance.

So while the restaurant and food was good(a bit pricey though and not great portions) the service was blah.

For this reason it gets two stars for overall experience.

Made team aware of anniversary. Desert came out with no indication of same. Leftovers came to us in a white "thank you" plastic bag that you get at a chinese takeout place. Is Mike the owner ever there to view quality?

When finding a restaurant in the area i was hooked on this menu because there were plenty of options. So I took my baby for his birthday. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us pick excellent food items from the menu. The ambiance was beautiful and quiet atmosphere. We would definitely come here again when in the area.

Best Rack of Lamb I've had in a long time. Seafood garlic was great. Its a place big on the upsell with "enhancements" and premium sides in addition to the normal sides. The cocktails looked great but I was unable to partake that day but my wife's French Pear was good according to her. New York Strip was cooked perfectly. The live music was an excellent classical (?) guitarist who played beautifully. I usually hate live music with dinner but this was nice. We would definitely come back.

Quality dining is limited in the area, if you want fine dining then Garlic is the only choice. The food is excellent but has a limited menu. Live music was loud, but you can still have a nice conversation. Great place for a date.

Great service, loved how they took care of me and my wife. when they had an issue, overcooked steak, they took care of it right away and had another one out quickly. The only drawback was the larger groups of patrons were getting their food auction style. (who ordered this, and this, and this).

I waited over half an hour with a reservation and my table was given away. The hostess, even with help from another hostess still managed to give a table away that was set aside for my guest and I. The food was excellent but would not recommend to a friend due to service.

Food is very good. Ask how much the specials are before you order. The Sweet Crab appetizer is excellent. The bartenders are great and they make the best martinis. The ambience is very good whether you sit inside or out.

Beautiful decor. Lobster mac & cheese was delicious, as was the crab appetizer. Desserts were great too. Service was fine. NY strip, however was just mediocre at best. When I spend that much for a steak I expect it to taste nearly as good as those at Ruth's Chris. It didn't, sorry.

After a long research we finally settled on this restaurant. It is listed as fine dining place and it didn’t disappoint. Everything was fresh and delicious, the torched goat cheese was great. I had the beet salad and it was very good too. For main entre we had filet Mignon and chicken Parmesan - both tasted great. For desert we chose white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and it was amazing. Overall my only negative comment is that the service could use a tad more “finesse”, that’s all. The staff was very friendly and professional otherwise. I will definitely go back for seconds soon.

Great ambiance. Not your typical woodsy, mountain decor. More like Philadelphia-hip. We drove down from Pocono Pines with another couple who thought it was really good, too. We even indulged in deserts! What a treat!
