We celebrated our Anniversary here last week and were very impressed all around. The atmosphere is lovely, terrific service, great wines, and an outstanding meal.
The duck was exceptional, as was the tuna trio. I had the ciopinno special which was delicious, if a little on the skimpy side.
Will definitely go back!

Menu was amazing and the food was very good. We had the strip steak special which involved two small steaks with coatings. In each case one was overcooked (thinner meat) and the other was fine. Our waiter never came by to check on us or the meal. He was not very attentive. That said, the food was very good and the atmosphere was very nice as well.

The ambiance and atmosphere was very nice. Pete was a pleasure to have as our server. We enjoyed the wine flights very much. Coffee was great. The trio of creme brulee was not the best.

A cute place that is perfect for small and large parties alike. I was impressed that when our server was working with another table when we arrived, the bartender came out to get our drink order. Very nice! I've found service to be slow this week at many restaurants, perhaps because students are on break? This place was the exception.

Went there for New Year's Eve. Very limited choices. Food quality was OK. Crab cake was mostly corn meal. Halibut small and dry. Not worth the cost at all. Also was supposed to get a glass of champagne with the meal but never got it.

We had a good table in a quiet corner. Server was adequate but not personable or attentive. More food (New Years menu) than I usually eat and not outstanding. Maybe because we were in an out-of-the-way spot, it did not feel special.

Three couples gathered for a New Year's Eve meal. The fixe prix menu was diverse and tasty. The bottles of Italian Sangiovese were great and a relative value. The service was a little challenged by the crowd, but were attentive and cheerful. My fried oyster appetizer and the 'Italian Donut' desert were the alpha and omega for my meal selections. We'll go back !!!

Our food was a big disappointment. For the cost, we were expecting more. For one course, we had King Crab Cakes. Couldn't find the crab, only breading. Next we had a New York Strip Steak. We expected good pieces of meat. However, we both had pieces with a lot of sinew, which made the dish difficult to eat. We had heard great things from friends about this restaurant, but were very disappointed with what we got for our buck.
