i took my mother, my grandmother & my sister to celebrate Mother’s day. it was my mother’s & grandmother’s first time dining here, and i wanted them to have the full experience.
i made the reservation a month in advance and requested a booth with Syed as our server and ended up not having either.
our server was Sean & overall it wasn’t a terrible experience, i was a little disappointed as a frequent guest & former employee that our requests were unable to be fulfilled.

We made Mother's Day reservations few weeks ago and had choice when booking to sit inside, outside, or at high top table. Thankfully I chose inside seating as it was a miserable, rainy, freezing cold Sun in May! When we arrived, the hostess showed us to our table - which was in the "outdoor" area. I explained to her we actually requested indoor seating. She said she didn't see that, and seemed as if she didn't believe me. She said we would have to go back and wait probably 30-60 mins for indoor seating to open up...HUH? Wouldn't be such a big deal, but was pouring rain, very cold day and hostess did absolutely NOTHING to try to accommodate or even check on it for us. While they had heaters that warm the area, water was running under the tented outdoor cover on the floor under our feet! And also being seating on side by road, every car that drove caused more cold air and water to blow in! NOT a great way to start my Mother's Day experience I had been really looking forward to, and the hostess neither apologized or seemed to care. We chose to stay put as it was very crowded and busy, and server in the area, Cara, seemed like she was going to be phenomenal. Cara didn't disappoint us, and made our experience fun, enjoyable and accommodated us as much as possible. She was very attentive to ALL the tables she was servicing and turned heaters on/off for us, and just went above and beyond to make my Mother's Day and our meal the best possible, even if our seating choice didn't happen. She was THE best, and just amazing! I really appreciated her wanting to make me happy and treat us special. She was very personable and kind and even brought my younger daughter pink fondue forks...so sweet! The pre-set Mother's Day menu selection was good, and we LOVED the cheese and dessert best as always! My husband hates paying the high price to "cook his own food" (TRUE! LOL!) so we only come every few years, but we all enjoyed it even more than usual, thanks to Cara!

We had a table of 4 adults and a 4 and 8 year old for Mother’s Day. We had an early reservation at 11:15 which was perfect because it was a 3 hour brunch. Each course was beautifully presented. The service was attentive. My favorite course was the chocolate fondue for dessert. If I go back I would probably skip the meat course and just do the cheese and chocolate courses.

We have been at the restaurant in the past but this time had a wonderful waitress who really explained the menu and our options - options we never knew we had in the past. It enhanced our meal and great appreciated that. I hope they train other servers to be as complete with their description of the menu.

Overall, had a great experience. The compromise lies in where we were seated. Upstairs, right opposite a storage room and the kitchen. A minor disappointment, but would ask to be reseated in the future.
