    The only negative about dinner was our server. He was not polite or friendly, but instead very cocky and seemed to be bothered when we would ask for drinks or put our order in. Besides that the food and restaurant were wonderful.

    We have been there several times and you can always count on everything being just what you re looking for. The infused liquors make the drink choices a very special surprise each time; and the steak on the stone is just a phenomenal dinner entree!! The waitstaff is always so friendly and knowledgeable about their unique dishes. We will continue to dine here as long as we keep coming to Bethlehem, PA.

    The 6 of us came for dinner before attending our 20th High school reunion. We arrived between 5:45 and 6pm. We ordered our food around 6:30pm but the food did not come up until 7:30pm and we missed an hour of our reunion. I understand that the kitchen was busy but 60 minutes is too long. The appetizers took 30 minutes to come out.

    Was expecting better with knowing reputation of chef. Staff was either working their first day or just not experienced. They tried to accommodate but were awkward and our server talked too much, did not read cues of table, and interrupted conversation. Soups were salty and New England Clam Chowder seemed like it was just their crab bisque but made with clams. We mentioned it looked odd and may be the wrong soup served, but no, it was correct. Salmon could not be cooked medium rare as requested for reasons we did not understand being in the business ourselves and it was a tad over done, but glaze was good. Four of us shared everything we ordered and had a good variety with some hits and some misses. Would try again just to see if it was an off night for them.

    We were there for a birthday celebration. We were seated at our reservation time of 7:00. Our waiter, Nick, looked to be a manager, and due to staffing shortages, he and other managers were waiting tables. The restaurant was nearly full inside and outside. Our meals were all delicious (Steak on a stone, Ribeye, Pasta with shrimp, scallops and calamari, and Barramundi). Nick was great. He was attentive without being overbearing, very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. They were out of a few appetizers and one main dish, but that seems to be an issue for many restaurants now. My husband was presented with a slice of Espresso cake with a candle and ice cream. It was a very lovely evening.

    From door to table and out the door. Greeted at door was good, table was wobbly got at new table good, got drinks and appetizer a timely wait not too bad. Crab cake appetizer was good but safe as in it lacked a signature flavor, calamari & noodle entree had great sauce, had the option for fried calamari been suggested would have choose fried. Setting was great all around good experience, and would referral a select few friends or family.

    Mixed experience. The crab bisque was disappointing. It had a gooey consistency and the crab flavor didn’t come through. The artichoke small plate was cooked well but I didn’t particularly like the flavor of the sauce. The garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables that came with making the small plate into a large plate were my favorite parts, and quite a bargain at five dollars. We sat at a sidewalk table and I appreciated having the outdoor option, but periodically a really noisy vehicle would roar through the intersection which was annoying. Our server was very nice and helpful. BTW My two companions liked their dishes better than I did.

    The food was amazing and the ginger martini was top notch. The only problem is that it was extremely loud. My husband and I were hoping to have a quiet romantic dinner which was difficult due the noise level. But other then that everything was wonderful.

    The food was very good. One dish was the crackling shrimp. They served that dish many years ago for a Lehigh Valley Style party but was not on the menu. It is now and it's delicious.

    This is our second time back and it didn't disappoint. We had a nice table outside and our server was Sarina. She was excellent. She was very busy but always made it a point to check to see if we needed anything. Our meal consisted of the crab cakes and the skirt steak. Both were made to perfection. We also had a creme brulee which was fantastic. We look forward to returning for a third time in the near future. We also loved the outside dining.
