                                                      it was good, they didn’t have their usual menu and some run out but service was good.

                                                      It was our first time visiting this location and after visiting the Roseville location recently, I had high hopes. They were noticeably understaffed for Mother's Day. We arrived 15min early for our 12:30pm reservation and were warmly greeted at the door and asked if we still preferred outdoor seating. It was very windy on Sunday and I was concerned it would be cold, but the patio is mostly enclosed and there were plenty of heat lamps, so we kept the plan with outdoor seating. David our server was so great - very personable and upbeat even though he seemed to have been responsible for the majority of the tables on the patio. We were disappointed in how long it took for our entree's to come. Luckily we did order the spinach and artichoke dip, which was delicious. Our main's (Filet Mignon and Salmon Benedict) took almost 40min to come out. My mom ordered her filet medium-well and, oddly, half her cut was medium-well and the other was well done and she needed to flag down David for steak sauce. My Salmon Benedict was only disappointing because the poached eggs were overcooked and the yolks were like hard boiled eggs - dry and powdery. I had intended to order the Butter Cake, but we had already been at the table for over an hour and I didn't know how long it would take. I would probably not come back on a holiday when they would be extremely busy. And based on my experience at the other location, I'm willing to come back, probably on a weekday.

                                                      The yelling from the kitchen made it seem like Gordon Ramsey must have been in the kitchen. Over yelling at the staff and banging pans I tried to enjoy my Mother's Day Brunch. The unprofessional outbursts that came from the open kitchen had every patron cringing. I felt sorry for our waiter who tried his best to hide the apparent fighting that was happening in the kitchen. We were seated at 11:45 and were served at 1:10. If I wanted to hear childish behavior, I could have stayed home and listened to my kids. He should be fired. It's a shame usually we enjoy are meals in this establishment. I don't think we will be back... at least not until the child behind the apron learns to behave.

                                                      It took an hour and a half for the kitchen to make our food. It was pretty upsetting receiving cold food after that amount of time. We even had to push back our following appointment because of the wait. Our waiter was great. I just don't understand what happened with the kitchen.

                                                      I enjoyed the Prime Rib special. The entre salad was was large and the dressing was delicious. Prime Rib was cooked to order. The meat was tender and very tasty. Mashed potatoes were delicious. And the chocolate cake dessert was outstanding!! We're definitely going to return.

                                                      Had a nice lunch, too bad they don't offer their delicious bread and butter anymore. Otherwise, food and service was good.

                                                      My friend and I had a lovely lunch outside at PMAG. It was cold but they immediately lit a heater and moved it to our table so we were very comfortable. M-F they have lunch specials. The flat bread and salad special is terrific! It’s a great place for lunch with a friend.

                                                      It’s our go-to place to dine. We had a friend visiting from Chicago and knew she’d get a great meal and good service.
