Overall the food is not impressive at all. We started with the calamari and it really felt like it was microwaved. For the main course my wife had the pizza and it was decent I ordered the not so perfect picatta. The chicken was extremely bland the butter and wine sauce wasn’t very tasty at all. We haven’t visited the restaurant for over a year and was hoping it it would have gotten better but I can’t say it has.

Poor service. Food was served out of sequence. Ex: salad first then soup. Main course came with the soup. No room on the table

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. It was excellent. The bread was not great which is why I gave it a 4, but otherwise, nice and the sorbet between courses was a nice touch!!

We were a bit disappointed that the $18 appetizer, scallops wrapped in bacon, had only 3 scallops. Although the restaurant was virtually empty when we were there, we felt a bit rushed by our server. It was as though we were taking too long. It did not seem as though our table was needed for the next guests. The quality of the food was very good, as it has been in the past.

Our meals were delicious! We were seated on the enclosed patio where outdoor heaters were in use. Perfectly comfortable and our server was pleasant and attentive. We’ll be coming back regularly.

Arrived on time, greeted immediately and seated. Great booth near a fireplace. Natasha, our server, came right over to get us started. Staff attentive without hovering. Food was prepared as requested. My second visit for lunch; this is a real gem.

Service was very slow, we have never been there for 2 hours from seating to leaving. It really was disappointing. My husband’s pork chop was almost inedible. It was incredibly salty like someone didn’t rinse the meat after they took it out of the brine. My portion of food was unusually SMALL. It was not like our other experiences there...this is why we were so disappointed

Overpriced for the quality delivered. While the attempts to make a different menu and upscale, the cooking quality lacked, on two visits. This round included the scallops appetizer. Overcooked scallops, especially when they are thin, are never good.

Over fried calamari. The sauce was great, but when overcooked, lost some of the umpf.

Pizza burnt.

Service was attentive. Food was high quality. There was a minor mix-up on order. No problem getting correction. In days of COVID, was appreciative of spacing.

The waitress seemed rushed she didn’t tell us the specials. I don’t feel like she had time to take care of her table and she was too worried about other things. I would’ve liked to ask for a water but I felt like I didn’t really wanna bother her the food was OK and they were out of calamari I would not come back because I did not feel like I was very important and there are a lot of other restaurants that make you feel like you’re important and it’s worth the money that you’re spending. it was it was pretty expensive To be treated as if you’re Eating at a diner.

The place was way over priced. Average food at a high price.
Also there was a piece of paper in my daughter's sandwich. When we told the server all she said was "okay thanks ill let the chef know." I will not be back. Very disappointing the use to be good.

From start to finish this meal was fantastic. Service was impeccable, attentive and very polite but not intrusive. It was a great Valentines Day pick and we will be back again soon. This is likely our new favorite restaurant in the Lehigh Valley.

Drinks were perfect. Salads were interesting and not overly busy but with generous dressing which I prefer. Oysters was a great appetizer and left Caitlin wanting more. Complimentary sorbet to cleanse the palate was a classy touch. I had some of the finest venison I have ever had and I was impressed the waitress suggested medium rare before I could ask. That level of knowledge for game meat impressed me. Further inquiry discovered that elk is a regular menu item (best meat on earth in my mind) which we will return for soon. Caitlin’s lobster and steak was fantastic. Lobster was cooked maybe 1-2 minutes too long.

We took dessert to go, the meals were a perfect size and cocktails so well done it was nice to be completely satisfied but not stuffed. I can honestly say this was the best meal I’ve had in a long time.

Five stars was easily earned. Can’t wait to go back.
