One of the best spots in the area for authentic food in a cozy and slightly upscale yet casual environment.

Most of the food was excellent. Disappointed in the Ribeyes, both were over cooked. But everything else was great. First time steaks we're this way, so we will give them a break, as we love the food and atmosphere.

Took my wife here for Valentine’s Day. Cozy ambiance with the real fireplace smell wafting through the place. Food was excellent, deep wine and bourbon list. We will be returning often for those nights we want special dinners.

It was nice to sit to dinner on a cold Sunday and feel the warmth of the fire. The space was very inviting. The food was delicious and my friends all said their food was great. I would go back for sure.

The menu was limited for anyone who didn't want meat. The portions were small but it was good. The service was excellent and it's a really cool restaurant. I just wished the menu had some vegetarian options or even some more basic choices.

Overall I thought the restaurant was good. We sat down next to a family with kids and a loud table of 8 which wasn't ideal but I guess you can get that anywhere. It took a while to get our server to come by because she had two larger tables that took all her attention.

The food itself was good, but thought it could have been better for the price that you pay for an entree. I had a craft beer and the wife had a cocktail which were both excellent.

The busboy was rather annoying as he asked us 5 times (I counted) if he take anything off our table even though we were still eating.

The ambience was very nice. Although we were stuck in a back room, the rest of the restaurant looks well put together. We had reservations, which I would recommend.

We'll give this place a go again and am hopeful the little issues will correct themselves.

The atmosphere was exciting. You felt like you were at an event but it was not crowded. The food was excellent, service was centered on our experience and I think the individual wash rooms are a plus.

My wife and I went on a date night with a couple cocktails in the bar prior to dinner. Drinks are very good, but beware the cocktails are strong and go down smoothly. We had an appetizer of smoked salmon bruschetta and entrees of spare rib and bacon chop. The appetizer was excellent as was the spare rib. My wife's chop was very good, but she said she's order my course instead next time. Service at the bar and dining room was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. My only qualifier is the noise level can be high at times. We had a great time.

3 people recommend this restaurant to us. The inside looked great but I didn't get to see a lot of it bc we were brought back to a semi-private table. Which was really nice except I could see the people diagonally across from us so whenever I looked around I felt like I was staring at them. I got the meatloaf flight. The meatloafs were about the size of a small brownie and a little dry. I wasn't sure if my brussel sprouts were supposed to be cooked or raw. I didn't eat them. The potatoes that came with the dish was under one of the meatloafs and completely covered (so also tiny). My husband had the monk fish. Which was mostly lentils. All in all it seemed a little over priced. If I go back, I'd order pasta.

I love the comfortable, friendly ambience of the place. The martinis are exceptionally good, so it's hard to choose one! The duck wings appetizer was delicious. The Farfalla dish is a favorite as is the Lighthouse Salad. The lobster bisque was well liked by all of us. A very good restaurant for celebrating the birthday of three of our party of six. They were each offered a complementary dessert for their birthdays. I highly recommend the Turf room for any occasion!
