Lights were flickering the entire time. The couple next to us mentioned it to the waitress to see if we could be moved but they were unable to accommodate us due to how busy they were. She said it wasn't noticeable during the day only at night. Unluckily for us, it was night.

There was also a pretty large group there for a birthday party. Not sure if alcohol was involved but they were quite noisy. Not the nice dinner date wmy wife and I were expecting.

Food was great and the view was better. If we go again and the lights are flickering we'll probably just leave. Not the good first experience we were hoping for.

The Shanghai noodles was a tasty dish but the NY Strip dinner was more mediocre, especially for the cost. Portions were small for everything. View of the river was the highlight.

Greg was a very good server. He was on his game, the food was very good and the wine selection was excellent. He also knew we were going to the Broadway play and took care of us in a timely manner.

We had a good time for our first visit. We ordered the crab cakes, great flavor, then ordered the pad Thai, such a unique twist and had excellent flavor with good amount of spice. Also get the half chicken. Some of the most crispy and flavorful skin we had and the chicken itself was juicy and full of flavor. We got an order of the beignets to go and were not normal but a good take of them with fluffy and flavorful puff pastry. Will be back.

I ranked Service 4 stars because of the slow service. However, the server herself was outstanding and the manager compted a glass of wine. I definitely recommend this place; the Pad Thai, the burger, etc.

Nearly half the red wines on their list were no longer available. Service was VERY slow. Our server was nice but seemed exhausted. Turned out she was also the server for a large party on the lower floor. She should have had more help since it took almost an hour for us to order our food.
Food was okay, but not worth the price. Room was way too noisy to hear our conversations - gave up trying to hear the people across the table from me.
Won’t be back.

Service awesome! Crab cakes good - 3 small ones. Meatloaf was good but small portion and Thai salad with chicken is definitely enough for 2!

Everything tasted great

Overall great dinner for two . Each time I come here I cannot fault the service - attentive but not intrusive .

We started off with the lettuce wraps - just the right amount of spice and balance of peanuts . Four lettuce cups . Just the right amount for a great start to our meal .

I had the WP burger and my dinner date the halibut . The halibut was well presented and my other half was very complimentary on the overall taste . Very satisfying . My burger was cooked perfectly and a great taste . Fries accompanied the burger - your standard fry.

Overall a great meal and yes I would return again .

Love this restaurant. It is my favorite in GR. The design of the space, lots of natural light right on the river. Tables are spaced you don't feel crowded. The meatloaf is always amazing and we love the crab cakes. refreshing. My husband had Shanghai Noodles which he loved. Service was well-timed and friendly even though they were very busy. Restaurant was packed. Pizza is delicious here too.

Quite good. Some of the dishes didn’t make sense (cabbage and fennel seed with a steak is a strange choice and didn’t care for it). Meatloaf was OK. A bit dry, needed more of the port wine sauce. Texture was a bit crumbly. Dessert was incredible

Service was some of the worst ever. We only saw our waitress 3 times the entire night and we waited 30 minutes for the check, while listening to her tell the table next to us about how she cuts her own hair. Her attention was definitely focused on another table and overall it was just disappointing service.

Both the wine list and the menu are abbreviated. Abbreviated, as in 'to the point!' I had one beef steak option, the New York Strip, but it was a fabulous opportunity to taste what a great restaurant can do with this sometimes dry and chewy piece of beef. The steak was exactly as I has asked it to be prepared, tender, well seasoned, full of flavor and perfectly sized. My wife's Shanghai Noodles were equally as skillfully prepared. The wine list offers enough variety at each price level to be complete but not annoyingly complex or redundant. Our server was VERY competent and quite helpful to make our evening very enjoyable. Yep, I would go back and I can recommend you go, too!
