    The worst service you can imagine. 45 min after being seated we received our flat non carbonated Pepsi. After 1 hr and 15 min the Caesar salad that looked like it came out of a store bought bag came out. My husband ordered the rib eye and I had the filet mignon, neither of us had more than 2 bites of either. Same with the lobster Mac. You are better off literally anywhere else. They want this place to be upscale but it’s not..

    Food was good. Service seriously lacked. Server lacked training on menu and wine. Took 15 minutes to be acknowledged and took longer to get service throughout the dining experience. Great location and has good potential. Just need some training

    The service was pretty spotty here although there was only one other table of customers in the restaurant when we arrived. I think the wait staff tried hard but it seemed liked they were pulled into doing things in the bar area as well. It took awhile to get a cocktail order in and we had to asked multiple times for water, reminders about our orders, etc. The bar area was very busy and loud. You could hear the din from the bar but every time the door opened to the adjoining bar it was super loud and there was also a baby’s screams coming from the other end where there wasn’t a door. One member of our party ordered the scallop dish with fava beans saying she doesn’t love scallops but wanted the beans, which are unusual on a menu. When the dish came, no beans, they didn’t have any. My medium rare $48 steak was overdone. The kitchen just didn’t hit the mark. Overall, a good but not great fine dining experience.

    Great time here with a party of 10. Everything we ordered was very good. The filet and the elk were great. Oysters were excellent. Only wish they had the mushroom ravioli but they were out. Highly recommend this place.

    Beautiful experience! I took my mom for a nice holiday dinner - we started with the pork belly with a nice pairing of strawberry salad. For entrees, we had the mushroom ravioli and the scallops - yum! Cooked perfectly, and the sauces were rich and flavorful, will definitely order these again! We passed on dessert, but a bottle of New Zealand Sauv Blanc was perfection as we delighted in the wonderful service. Will enjoy this place again and again!

    We live in the area and can’t believe this is our first time to have dinner here. The food was amazing and presentation was beautiful. We started with the crab legs as well as a wonderful spin on a Caprese salad. For dinner we the duck and steak/frites. Everything was amazing!

    Really nice restaurant with beautiful decor and seating. Service was excellent and food was fresh, tasty and delicious. Prices were very reasonable and good portions. Compliments to the menu maker, variety of choices and something for everyone. I would recommend for a date or friends gathering. We will be back again!
