After 30 years of service it continues to be an incredible experience. Thank you.

Our dinner at the American was delicious. The service? Outstanding. We also enjoyed the quips and zingers from a funny, curly haired bowtie-clad man. A real hoot. Perhaps we will be lucky enough to see this space again once it is "reimagined". My only complaint was that I could not see the Rieger from my table, only some sparkly old Christmas lights and the Mayor's dead tree. Yawn. JK it was beautiful. Thanks again, everyone.

Amazing view of the city with the festive holiday lights. Our waiter was awesome- he was knowledgeable, helpful, and liked our enthusiasm. The wine pairings were perfect with the different courses.

We are losing a gem. The food, the wine, the service, the live music, the view, the architecture, it is all great.

Truly the best night of my life. The staff was amazing! They helped arrange every detail of my marriage proposal - right down to the valet. . The food, drinks, and atmosphere were perfect. Many thanks.

We came to your restaurant after our wedding and your staff was incredible! As always, the food was perfect (Chef's Tasting menu) and the service was impeccable.

Elegantly prepared and presented. Very knowledgeable staff made the dining experience very special. Get there before they close at the end of the year.
