We tried the scallops that we had seen on the Lenten menu. They were absolutely excellent and reasonable in it's proportions. I added one "splash" of lime to my Americana, nonalcoholic drink. It was delicious, but I think I will request two splashes the next time. We ordered the gelato with the lavendar enhancement, and it was exotic and fabulous. Anthony checked recently, and we were at 90 visits. I asked him about reward points. Brian and Holly were watching us and a much larger table as well, and did an excellent job!

Lovely steak house option in Bellevue KY. Awesome view of downtown. The service was excellent. I had 8oz filet with house sauce, would ask for Bernaise next time. Steak was cooked to perfection. A little too salty on the crust. We had side of green beans. Nice prep with garlic sauce. My husband had rib eye and loved his. He had the ahi tuna appetizer which he said was excellent. The restaurant had a nice ambience and a vocalist/piano player who sounded a lot like Adele. Music wasn’t too loud, just right. We would definitely return.
