    Initially the restaurant had lost our reservation (on Rezy?). But as I was able to show my Open Table confirmation (where I had booked it), they accommodated us with a beautiful table in the garden tent. The service was outstanding! And the food was delicious! Great wine list, too! My only complaint is that they gave me exactly 2 Brussel sprouts with my meal. So 4 lamb chops and 2 Brussel sprouts seems a little unbalanced…maybe double that vegetable serving…? Otherwise a truly great experience!

    We have dined at great restaurants the past 30 years. By far we decided this was the best meal we have had. We rated this our number 1! The fried cornbread was out of this world delicious. We wanted to come back for a 2nd night, but there were no reservations left. Will book for next year for sure in early Spring for our Summer get away.

    Book the reservation 3 months in advance for an outside table. Ended up up inside in a corner. The food is very expensive!!!!!!! Could get the same quality food for a lot less in several near by restaurants.

    Goodness, I was bummed- We came back a year later after having a great experience in the patio and this time the experience was a miss. Blasé staff mentally with a $$$ menu, host sat us next to a huge loud party in a room full of empty tables- they seemed eager to clear our plates. I do have to say the dirty martini’s were AMAZING and entrees were on point! But the loud atmosphere and service… I was ready to get out, no dessert just the bill please… we went on Main Street for dessert and had a much better experience and best of all felt like valued guest. I would go back, but it might be a bit as the restaurant’s in the area have a lot to offer.

    I wanted to write a good review. Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience. My asparagus soup tasted good, but something about it was a bit spicy. Also there was minimal lobster, only an itsy bitsy piece of claw. I had the halibut for the main course and again there was something too spicy in the Israeli couscous. I did enjoy the pesto, but the halibut itself was over cooked and had a very crispy crusty on the outside. My partner had a worse experience. First his salad was way overdressed. For his main he had the rib eye. There was a piece of plastic in the mashed potatoes and his steak also was over cooked. The chef seemed to really like to make things crispy. The middle of the steak wasn’t medium rare as ordered and the outside was burnt. The service was great and dishes were comped but the food was a disappointment.

    Our two course meal was delicious and filling. We started with a lovely asparagus pea soup and a spinach salad and moved on to halibut and duck breast Servings were generous and we had no room for dessert Wine selection was solid with not too bad up charge.

    Not a place i would go again for a special occasion. We were not able to request an indoor table indoors and got seated under a tent on the side of the building. Looking at fake hedges and peeling paint on the side of the building. Food was okay and service was also just okay. But i had entered information when i booked indicating it was a birthday celebration and even mentioned it the waiter. But nothing came of it. A good restaurant would have make some effort to mention it or bring a desert with a candle in it or even provide a complimentary desert or glass of bubbles. So it is not clear if they just do not care or do not have there stuff together. In short a little bit of effort would have made a big difference. And they came up way short.
