First time dining here. We had the short ribs and salmon both which were excellent. It was a date night for my wife and I and wanted something nice but in a relaxing atmosphere and this fit the bill perfectly

I had reduced expectations because it was New Years Eve. Although I had made my reservation several weeks ahead, when we arrived we had a twenty minute wait. We were fortunate to find a seat at the bar and enjoy excellent service and delicious cocktails. When we were told our table was ready we were seated in the function room. Not nearly as good ambiance as the main dinning room. Ordered the special surf and turf, one came out perfect and the other plate was three over done slices of tenderloin. Waiter was very good and return with a full tenderloin flay perfectly cooked. Why the kitchen would think that the three pieces would be acceptable is puzzling and not what I have grown to expect from PCG. Good recovery and generally a satisfying evening.

New Years Eve was very busy, so we were seated a half hour after our reservation time and the wait staff was much more rushed than usual. Even so, the food was terrific and the service was acceptable.

Pork tenderloin entree was wonderful. However the oil in the green bean pan was way too hot, and the green beans had a nasty, burned oil taste. No offer was made to replace them with another veg. However, I love the new Cabernet Franc on your wine list!

We are very happy with the service we received Saturday December 21st. And the food was delicious.
If we could make a suggestion, please make the Brunch menu available Saturday and Sunday.

We came in late and the waitress and chef were still willing to accommodate my special diet happily. The food and service is always consistently great and I love the quiet, neighborhood feel of the space. One of my all time favorites for any occasion. Oh, the wine is great too!

Went there for our 28th wedding anniversary. The server was on point, as well as the food and drinks. The owner Sheldon even came by to say hello and wish us a happy anniversary. Really unexpected. Price was reasonable for the food we had. And lest I forget the extensive whiskey menu they offer.. now I have to go back!

First visit for lunch- food was fine. Menu not real big. Salad and soup were both good but asked if they had turkey versus beef for an hamburger and it was no.
Service was fair and waitress was a little short with us.
