    I had the steak, my son had the quail and we both decided to have the brownie dessert. All of it was absolutely delicious. I mentioned that it was my son's birthday and they actually gave him a birthday card! Great experience!

    New Year’s dinner was not a good experience. Our waiter was MIA for most of the dinner. We had to ask another waiter to serve us. So, basically we were forgotten. They did apologized, however when our main course was brought out it was cold and tasteless. We were rushed to eat. Very disappointing.

    A pre fix New Years dinner. Started with A She Crab soup . Very tasty but like warm. The came our friend Filet Tenderloin tasty and cooked perfectly but luke warm. Then my husband and I both had the seafood Cioppino very tasty but again like warm. Plus the hostess was hovering the tables. I know there were different seatings coming up!! But to rush the food out when it was like warm probably sitting under the heat lamp…

    Had a great meal starting with the beet salad and that awesome Owl bread, followed by the fresh catch - golden tile fish - and the excellent red pea/rice Indian dish. Just the perfect amount of heat. Jeff, our server, did a great job keeping up on a busy night and had excellent recommendations.

    It took an hour and a half to get our food. The food was definitely not as good as expected. The pork shoulder was very fatty and sweet with very little flavor aside from the sweetness. The other dishes were OK, but nothing great.

    Our waitress was great and gets 5 stars. The hostess 1 star. She was definitely not happy to be there. The truffle fries were delicious as was the pumpkin ravioli. Went out on a limb for the steak because we were set on a meat and pasta. I would say above average flavor but was cooked to temperature. However $50 was high for the quality. Vegetables were very good. Probably could overall be 4 stars but hostess just set a negative tone for the meal.
