Easily one of the best steaks we have ever had!

My husband and I went to celebrate our 7 year anniversary (and our first date night since our three year old was born) and were blown away by the service and quality. The place was clean, had beautiful ambiance and was nice and quiet. The service was impeccable and everyone was very welcoming and attentive. We ordered the sausage stuffed bread as an appetizer and could have eaten that as a meal it was so good! But the steak, oh the steak! Worth every penny!!

We enjoyed our Friday night date; however, to our surprise the change of the wine list. One of our favorites was increased 10$ since our last visit, our "waitress" was outstanding.
The ambiance was "different" but we love the food and the salad dressing is WOW.
We will be back.

It was a wonderful time. We celebrated our 19th Anniversary and it seemed special. The restaurant did tables that were social distancing outside & everyone wore their masks to prevent Covid-19, which made us feel safer and relaxed. The ambiance was nice with a nice warm breeze blowing and romantic music playing and the food was delicious. What a great evening !

Staff is fantastic. Very nice outdoor seating and ambience. Menu selection lacking and not great value. Paper menus quite tacky. Great drink selection.
Update: the restaurant reached out to me, letting me know the paper menus are due to the pandemic. I wasn’t aware of this at the time, but I’m glad to know they are taking these precautions!

Enjoyed our outdoor seating! Our server was amazing. Started out with Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms that we’re very flavorful. Our entrees were Parmesan Crusted NY Strip Steak and Cedar Plank Salmon, both were savory! Capped it off by sharing a slice of the Limoncello Cake - wow!! The lemon, raspberry and citrus were mouth watering. Great date night to celebrate my husband’s birthday!

I had heard many good things about this place and made sure to take advice on ordering the steak. It was 36$ for the 10oz filet and I had ordered it medium.. the first try it can me out purple which was the most rare I’ve ever seen, second try it still was just above rare also..Third try I could tell it was much smaller but decided it would work as I was hungry at this point; manager did not take it off the bill but offered a dessert as we had already closed the bill. I don’t eat desserts so that was disappointing. The soup was really good but be sure to check your steak. Would have liked to see this be fixed in store but it wasn’t.

Me and my fiancé were celebrating our anniversary and couldn’t have picked a better place to go. It was our first time there and the service was amazing and food was delicious as well. We even had our own little private area so it felt more secluded and special. As if it were just the two of us in the whole place. Definitely will be returning again soon.
