    1st time here, with my wife. I ordered the chicken Parmesan. My wife ordered the scallops. The chicken Parm was average for a restaurant chicken Parmesan, but the scallops were outstanding. My wife said they were better than the scallops at Capital Grille. The cheese plate for 2 was disappointing and not what we thought it would be. It was not worth the price. Other than that, it was a great experience.

    We enjoyed a nice lunch with a neighbor guest. In spite of having asked for a nice table as part our reservation, the hostess first tried to seat us in a relatively noisy area near the kitchen. Once that was resolved and we had a window seat, everything was fine. Food was very good as was the service.

    Caprese Salad (special) was awesome! Truly ripe tomatoes. STuffed shrimp: shrimp very good; done to my taste which is well done, stuffing not so much but I believe that was due to the fact that i like my shrimp well done. So kudoes to server for listening and chef to providing. Service went downhill as soon as table of 8? seated next to us; patrons there kept moving seats and questions and choice difficulty; server also evidently with tables behind the wall as she moved there regularly. table cleared promptly but wait for dessert, wait for check and someone to collect payment. At least 10 minutes for check and payment; sitting there with clean table......this is definitely a MANAGEMENT problem. all those folks wandering around clearing plates; nobody taking payment....hmmmmmmmm
