Loved the place. Good food, charming atmosphere. Only strange thing was the parking lot was empty and appeared closed. Almost left even though we had a reservation. Apparently there is another parking lot because there were several diners. Need sign on door explaining!

Always a warm wonderful atmosphere however our waiter must have been working another party in another room as we were ignored for periods of time. Food took WAY to long to be served but it was delicious.

Food was very tasty, restaurant overall is a bit dated. We were there early in the evening and it was very slow. Service was the only thing that needed improvement. Given how slow it was, we expected better.

The veal cherry is wonderful the best I have had.
The cove area in the bar is very romantic.
It is so sad it is closing.

Excellent food, service, and ambiance! It is great place for fine dining. They have a wide range of entrees from Italian to streaks and lamb chops to seafood and poultry dishes. All are excellent!

Very good food as always, when we visited this restaurant. Some furniture is a bit outdated (armchairs at reception lobby) but most in good condition following English style. Available separate rooms very suitable for celebrations of privacy during business dinner. Lounge / bar with excellent selection of spirits and live music towards the end of the week. Nice place and clearly worth the money.

Celebrated our anniversary with a wonderful meal here. We love this place!! As always, the food was perfect, the service attentive. It is a drive for us but definitely worth it. We weren't aware of the upcoming closure of the restaurant (within a few months) until that evening, and are so disappointed, since it has been the scene of many happy celebrations for us. We plan on visiting again soon, while we still can.

Food was excellent for our special occasion. The filet was cooked perfectly, very tender and had great flavor. I’d order that again!

The overall score is down a bit because there was a fruit fly in my cocktail. The host whisked it away, apologized profusely, and removed it from the bill. No harm done.

Became a future story to tell about this anniversary.

Gosh. So underwhelming. The lunch food for each of the four of us was fair in quality, presentation, and taste. The room has stuffy and not sufficiently cooled at all on a very hot day. Staff was not particularly welcoming or attentive. Would not return or recommend.

I was a little anxious about how the food would be because the decor was pretty much plain white bread. But the menu was good, the reviews were good, and lo and behold, the food was very good. Tasty and plentiful. Very pleasantly surprised.

We were there celebrating my birthday, which was mentioned. Server never said happy birthday or suggested that they have a birthday dessert. I ordered the strip steak along with a baked potato (said there was only 1 left) this was at 6:00p!! The steak was under cooked and the last baked potato was way over baked. Very disappointing

The waiter was either very inexperienced or just not on the ball tonight. Food came out cold. Just everything about it was wrong. The food was mediocre at best. Will not be going back.

Meh. Decent food at fine dining prices.
Nothing was bad, but nothing was nearly as good as the bill would indicate.

We went to the courthouse after a commencement ceremony. While the food was delicious, the wait staff seemed somewhat poorly trained, where a couple arguments broke out on the floor and our food order was somewhat confused.

Restaurant did not have record of my Open Table reservation even thoughI had gotten a confirmation email. No problem getting a table. Ordered a Chardonnay but it was delivered in a White Wine standard glass. Chardonnay was fresh though but standard goblet did not render the slight oak finish I was hoping for. Salmon was very good, house salad dressing was very good, fresh rolls are awesome.

We were greeted by an attentive, pleasant young woman, seated us immediately. Our wait-staff came within a few minutes of our seating and greeted cheerfully. She asked if we cared for drinks and if we had questions on the menu, and then gave us a few minutes to look over the menu while she got our drinks. The service was pleasant, efficient, and just the right pace on serving our food. The wait-staff keep our water filled and dishes cleared promptly with out being intrusive. The food was served hot, tasted good, and portioned right. Our bill was priced commensurate for the dinning level. Over all we had a pleasant dinning experience and will return again.

The service here was friendly and prompt. The decor is dated. There was a Christmas tree still standing inside the entrance that had been decorated for Valentine's Day even though it was now March. The food was mediocre. There was live music in the bar that could be heard in the dining room that was not pleasant to listen to- kind of like bad karaoke music. We will not return to dine here.

Disappointed that I made 7:30 reservations and didn’t get seated for FORTY minutes after at 8:10. Food was good but we didn’t get our salads for another 45 minutes so instead of eating at 7:30 we ended up eating at 9:00 pm. It seemed like the staff was ill prepared to handle the demand...not sure why I made reservations.

Food and service were both very good. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were informed that the restaurant did not have our reservation. It was explained to us that open table had allowed reservations to be made without the restaurants knowledge and were facing overbooking. We were relegated to a back room that had the feel of a back porch with carpet. I suspect the other diners on the porch with us, all suffered the same overbooked fate, as I heard the hostess explaining the problem with open table, to others as well.
Wasn't thrilled about the ambiance for valentines day, did I mention the incline on the floor, but the food was very good, so I wouldn't let it keep me from going back. Next time I'll call the restaurant for a reservation.
