    My best friend and I had a wonderful time and our server was amazing!!! The food was exquisite and very well plated! The only negative comment is that we were asked to move to the bar due to other reservations. I felt like this was rushing as we just received our after supper drinks.

    This restaurant was highly recommended to us by our friends as a place for a special night out. Our table was noisy and cold with regular drafts from the doors. The steaks were advertised as prime, but didn't measure up. We have a direct producer connection supplying our home with beef. We have a favorite restaurant in town, and we will return to it for our special nights.

    Always order the brussel sprouts, so yummy. The Asian salad was fab and filling. Retired from hospitality industry after 43 years with 13 owning my own business. I had great employees that worked hard, took great care of our customers and were very dedicated and loyal. If I still had my business I would try to take our waitress away from you. She was FAB.

    Very noisy and difficult to hear even though we were at a table in the bar. Food was pretty good. Didn’t get the burger because it’s always over done. Used to get the French onion soup and had chicken salad but that’s no longer an option…too bad. Had a terrific waitress. She was outstanding.

    Had to wait until 8:15pm for our reservation due to being "busy" but when we arrived at 7:30pm to have a drink prior, there were more open tables than full tables. When asked "did a lot of people cancel?" the answer was "no. Confusing. Nonetheless, we also were seated right next to the "to-go" prep table....very inconvenient and unpleasant.

    As usual, the food was excellent. But I had made reservations, which were confirmed, but there was no table for us in the main dinning room, so we were seated in the "back" room which was large with two tables for couples and a large table which seated eight (and eight very loud ladies sat there). No atmosphere. Why make a reservation if you don't hold a table for me!! And I wasn't late. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

    Food portions small-medium but the price is big. My pasta came out cold. Our server was socially inept. Hosts were also not sociable and one even disrupted our dinner to ask if My wife was Caroline. When she said no, the host walked away without saying anything. Overall a meh experience for high dollar expense.

    For the second time, had an absolutely fantastic, delicious filet mignon. The only significant issue was that they had run out of Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. How does a top quality restaurant allow that to happen for a Saturday night!? Anyway, we tipped the cooks for our incredible meal. We shall return!

    Our server needed to speak up (and we're not hard of hearing). She made numerous errors in our drink and food orders. Barely apologetic. Out 7:00pm reservation, which was not honored when we hit the door, we had to wait. But dinner etc took over 2.5 hours! Slow, slow, slow.

    We probably had the worst table, food was just ok (I had Mac and Cheese). It was overpriced and just ok. Waitress was mediocre. Hard to get drink refills. Restaurant very loud. Probably won’t go back. Once I got my meal, I tried to get waitress attention to ask about ingredients due to an allergy. It took a long time to get her attention. Not impressed. First time here. Did not make a great impression.
