    Had such a lovely time. The calamari and arancini were delicious. I got the chicken and it was great and the rest of our table got the burger which they all enjoyed. And the desserts were very good. The service was excellent!

    Absolutely loved my experience! This has become my go-to restaurant and I was having a farewell dinner for my friend who was traveling back home and the staff was extremely accommodating! My friend and I had a wonderful time and the manager, I believe her name was Karla, was hospitable and I hope to see her the next time I’m there! Thank you again to the staff who helped me give my friend an awesome sendoff!

    The espresso martini was delicious! The corn off the cob appetizer was really tasty but too large for one person. It's really more of a sharing portion. I ordered the NY Strip and the smashed potatoes and both were fantastic. The steak was cooked to my direction and was juicy and tender. I had the berries and cream for dessert. It came with a scoop of raspberry sorbet on top, which I found unecessary. The beauty of berries and cream is that it's not too sweet, so adding the sorbet is like gilding a lily. My one bad experience: the family bathroom I used was so dimly lit, I could barely see in there. Seems like when you're changing a baby, or touching up lipstick, you should be able to see what you're doing. It was so dark, that I couldn't tell that the bolt hadn't actually locked the door and someone walked in as I was washing my hands. That could have been a very awkward situation indeed! Please consider your brethren of low vision and brighten up that space a bit! Service was great, staff was courteous and friendly. I'll be going back. With a flashlight, lol.

    My burger came out burnt…twice. The waiter was very apologetic and was so wonderful. He took it off my bill and was kind in every way. Maybe they just had an off day, that day. My sister’s food was great!
