    Too much dressing on Salmon Salad. Dressing should be ordered on the aide. Lobster Bisque and Chicken meatballs was excellent. It was a little spicy though.

    It was a great experience hanging with two friends I haven’t seen in a long while. Loved the experience and ambiance. The only disappointing factor is that you don’t offer any vegan, nor non-dairy options other than the Brussel sprouts - and they technically are not vegan because it has honey.

    The bread on the Artichoke dip was so hard and not warmed. I tried to eat a second slice with the dip as it was very tasty, but the flatbread was cardboard. It made us taste the pizza we ordered with the same taste in our mouths. The server re-ordered it although we had just asked for a different bread as we had eaten half of the dip already, but she gladly re-ordered and didn't make us feel bad at all. That was very nice and the bread that came out was more of a pita bread and much better, but by this time we had finished all other items, so it was after the fact. Im not sure if they are using cauliflower flour but the first bread was hard, not taste, and not warm. Ugh!

    My guest and I shared an appetizer and a pasta. Both dishes were very good. Our server, Tran, was cordial, attentive, and even went beyond our expectations by having the pasta split for us. Excellent service.

    Chris was very friendly & helpful & recommended Specials of the day: Lamb Meatballs appetizer & a Lamb Burger entree; both very tasty! Also had to order Special Soup of the day ; Steak & Barley! Ordered Crispy Calamari with banana peppers; an excellent appetizer! We also had the generously sliced French Dip sandwich; so delectable! Chris also suggested dessert so we ordered the Creme Brulee with fresh raspberries & the aromatic French Press Kona Coffee ; a perfect ending to a perfect meal!
