    One drink was way too strong. Had to ask for more juice to add to it. The other drink was not drinkable and was returned (they did remove it from the bill). My pork chop was undercooked and had to be sent back to finish cooking. By the time it came back the rest of my group was finished eating. It was OK. Not great for the money. My other guests enjoyed the burgers and linguini with clam sauce- but we have had better at other places for much cheaper. It was my third time there and probably my last.

    The moment we walked through the door of the restaurant, we were immediately greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The soft lighting and elegant decor set the perfect tone for our special Mother's Day dinner. Stephanie, our waitress, was not only attentive and friendly, but she also went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was nothing short of exceptional. As we settled into our seats, we were presented with the Mother's Day prefix menu, which was a delightful surprise. Each course was expertly crafted and beautifully presented, showcasing the chef's creativity and attention to detail. From the appetizers to the desserts, every bite was a symphony of flavors that left us wanting more. The highlight of the evening was definitely the main course - a perfectly cooked salmon for me and a filet mignon for my husband paired both entrees were delicious! It was a true culinary masterpiece that left us speechless. And let's not forget about the dessert of ice cream and sorbet was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. Overall, our experience at this restaurant was nothing short of amazing. The combination of delicious food, impeccable service, and charming ambiance made it a night to remember. We can't wait to go back and create more memories at this wonderful establishment.

    I booked this reservation for my sisters birthday dinner - which was noted in the reservation. The restaurant did not even acknowledge the birthday (it was clear there was a birthday from the birthday balloons on her chair). Why ask if we’re celebrating an occasion if you aren’t going to acknowledge it once we’re there? Our server was Stephanie. She was extremely unfriendly. We felt extremely uncomfortable with her. There was never a question of how we were. How our meal was. She never a smile cracked. She was rude - plain and simple. We also felt extremely rushed after spending quite a large amount of money on dinner and as we had a reservation and no one was waiting for a table. The food was mediocre. I don’t love giving bad reviews but we were so unimpressed. There are a lot of options in this area and I’d be surprised if anyone in my party would ever return to your establishment.

    The atmosphere, service and food were perfect. Our server, Danny was welcoming, cheerful and informative! He provided suggestions and paced the meal perfectly! Everything we tasted was delicious! From the cocktails, bread & butter, soup, main course and bread pudding were yummy! The restaurant seemed a little loud, but qe had a quieter table in the corner it wasn't as bad. I cant wait to come back!!

    Service is the high point for sure. Excellent. The fish , sea bass was cooked perfectly but presented with nothing that really accompanied it well. The aioli was tasteless and left on the plate unused. Looked nice but not a very good effort. There was a mint flavored swath of green puree (pea?). Whatever. Completely out of place with this dish. Added nothing and was also left for the dishwasher. Was this dish from one of those reality cooking shows? Nice place but at $115 per person average…

    Good quality meal. We had branzino, salmon, burger and bolanese. Loved the butter, had a sweetness but not too much. Tuna tartare was ok, could have had more tuna.

    We had a lovely weekday lunch experience.  My salad was fresh and tasty. I added on a piece of salmon to my salad. It was perfectly cooked and crispy on the outside. We both started our meal with a butternut squash soup, which was delicious.

    Drinks were great. Our server was very honest about what we should order. My complaint is there is no option to add grilled chicken, shrimp or salmon to a salad. I thought that was strange & not a crazy thing to ask of. We ended up getting a Cesar salad, the Burrata & the ribeye tacos (it was a special) everything was tasty. We will be back

    The drinks were good. The pork belly tasted good but was very sticky and hard to chew, especially if someone has had dental work, namely crowns. The veal entree had a good portion. The cook was inconsistent thought, though, while the sea bass entree felt undersized, given the price.

    We have dined here 5 times and had two very good dishes, and three experiences of mediocre food. Last night, the chicken was overcooked and the linguini and clams had little taste and the clams were chewy. It is unfortunate because we love the atmosphere and the location. The bar is great.
