Tried this for brunch rather than an evening meal. 5/5 of our group was disappointed. Whether it was having a drink spilled on you with little apology and no comp (two drinks spilled on two people, we had to ask for a comp which would have been standard in this case) or two menu items not prepared with the ingredient listed (English muffin vs grilled French bread) and THEN having a hair in the not-as-described-meal pretty much tanked this dining experience. One incorrect meal with the hair was replaced with a new order. Our waitress was nice and did her best, drinks spilling was completely an accident. The manager did approach and casually ask how everything was (not at all mentioning the spill which went on light colored clothing or the kitchen making the items different than the menu and with no apology or recognition at all) but if it was a visit to address the failings thus far was not communicated. There were 3 tables in the entire restaurant during a prime brunch time, it is clear why. This goes down as “never go back” in my book. Food was mediocre, poached eggs were cooked perfectly but were cold. Hollandaise was bland. Home fries were over cooked. There was just no redeeming this meal or the chance that any of us will return.

Server attentive and friendly. I have had better steaks and wedge salads elsewhere. Loaded potato was good. Not a lot of reservation options in the area so....

Our server was very professional and really "nice". Our meal was outstanding and we will return. It's the "most" my husband has eaten in A LONG TIME because he actually, doesn't like food. But he liked this food!!!!!

We had a great evening. Steaks were perfect. Lobster Rangoon was a great starter, followed by savory French Onion Soup. All 4 people in our party were very pleased.

Really cool place. Very nice for a date night. For the price of the food it wasn’t as good as I would have expected. The crab dip didn’t have much flavor. My fiancé got the filet and it was okay for how expensive it was. I got the veal and it was very good. We’re looking forward to going back and seeing the full menu since this weekend just had the fixed Valentine’s menu.

We had a fantastic night! I made the reservation for my husband’s 35th birthday celebration with a few friends of ours and it was our first time dining here. The wait staff was very attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. We’ll most certainly be going back!

Enjoyed dinner super bowl Sunday and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves for my wifes Bday celebration. Romantic, elegant environment and staff was friendly, patient and made the night that much more enjoyable. Food is pricey since I hate spending money lol, but it was delicious and worth every cent i paid to see my wife enjoy herself and her dinner.

We went for our first anniversary and they had the table decorated with “Happy Anniversary” confetti, which was so cute. The staff also told us happy anniversary multiple times. We also got a free dessert. Awesome drinks and food! They made us feel so special.

This is a beautiful place with a lot of character but the actual dinners were noticeably below past experiences. Maybe it’s a virus effect and maybe not. There’s no way to tell.
