    GREETED, SEATED QUICKLY AND WITH A SMILE. THEY WENT OVER MENUS, SUGGESTED BEVERAGES. WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THE "WEBSITE MENU" DID NOT MATCH WHAT THE INHOUSE MENU WAS (craving lobster risotto), SELECTED STEAK FRITES & DUCK. 2 SIDES, ASPARAGUS AND BRUSSEL SPROUTS. ALL WERE COOKED TO PERFECTION. HAS STICKY CARAMEL AND CHEESECAKE DESSERTS -VERY GOOD. WAITRESS WAS VERY GOOD AT CHECKING ON US AND NOT INTRUSSIVE. WILL BE BACK & WOULD SUGGEST YOU GIVE THEM A TRY.

    Menu on OpenTable was not up to date. Little disappointed as we were looking forward to the bone marrow. Both of us got the Steak Ftites - One filet was noticeably smaller than the other. At the cost of the entree that was very disappointing. Food was delicious.

    We were excited to order all the things we saw recently posted to social media only to find that they had a new menu and nothing was on this new menu. :( They had not updated their social media.
