Went for Thanksgiving. Waiter was very nice and attentive. Three course prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner. I had the carrot/coconut soup to start and my wife had the kale and almond salad. They were both delicious. Turkey was good but I could have used more stuffing and cranberry sauce. My wife requested more cranberry sauce and they brought us more ans more gravy. Desert was pumpkin cheesecake, which was amazing! Overall, a delicious meal and nice ambiance

Great food and service. Tables were very far apart which was fantastic. We were lucky-got the table on the 2nd floor in front of the fireplace-perfect!!!

Food was amazing-service was impeccable! Such a special treat.

I’m there all the time. There’s a good reason for that. The best food I know if served by the finest staff in the environment that most appeals to me - a beautiful, ornate room which somehow manages to still be cozy and welcoming. My favorite time of the week is grill 23 bar for dinner and unwinding. Usually on a Wednesday - my mid-week treat to myself.

Go check them out. Order anything it’s all equally well thought through and you can count on tbe service and attention to detail each time.
