Friendly, attentive staff in a romantic ambiance—perfect for a date or a friend date! I did not feel rushed and enjoye being in a back room, as it controlled the noise volume.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The steak tartare was amazing. the broiled octopus was disappointing, and the calves liver and filet were excellent. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. Desserts were pricey. We would return."

Drinks and food was pricey for what you receive. Had the scallops - $29 for 3 scallops on a bed of salty spinach?? Atmosphere was ok - older crowd. Service was good. Probably wouldnt go back just because of high price for quality/quantity of food.

I had a sea food Fettuccine. Sauce was excellent.portions of seafood could have been larger Larger at other restaurants. Cocktails were ok and as ordered. Service was good. Fresh hot bread was enjoyable. My wife had liver, which she was good. Her portion was large.

This was my first visit to Topaz. I had drinks, an appetizer, and dinner. Everything was fabulous. Would definitely go back again. Next time I'll try and save room for dessert. Service was great too.

Service was slow due to a private event happening at the same time. Food was good. My husbands filet had to be sent back because it was too rare. All in all , a disappointing night.

Last Saturday was a beautiful evening. Few places I would rather be at on that kind of night than the outside dining at Topaz. Beautiful surroundings, great service ( ask for Tia), always good quality food and the menu is always changing. We relaxed at the bar 1st and were never rushed to get to our table. We have been to Topaz many times over the last 10 years and will keep coming back.

Met a group of friends who were somewhat late. The servers didn’t rush us or make us feel bad about that. The outdoor patio, food and drinks were all very nice.

Topaz is one of my very few go to‘s for a special night. We ate dinner on the expanded outdoor patio which was absolutely lovely. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely be back again.

While service was great, I felt prices were too high throughout the menu featuring general dishes—in other words, nothing different or unique. At this price point, I expect at least the effort of describing the quality of your product/meats/fish a bit more.

My friend had the special which was the risotto with rock shrimp.
She was very disappointed with the shrimp. Rock shrimp are larger in size. Her shrimp was lost in the risotto because they were all about half an inch big. I wouldn't recommend this dish. We mentioned it to the waiter he disputed that those were "rock shrimp." He brought her more popcorn shrimp to add to her plate. They were all small. The reason why I still like this place is because the Amish chicken dish is delicious.
I'll go back again but I would not order anything with the tiny shrimp.

Not the experience we are used to at topaz. Rather disappointing. And the music was way too loud. Not a good choice to converse for our special occasion.

I've eaten here 5 or 6 times. Usually, the food and service is excellent. However, my husband and I were there with two friends, and my dinner was, well, nonexistent! They offered halibut, which I wanted to order, but it came with sides/sauces that I didn't like. I ordered it plain, with no sides or sauce. The waitress said she couldn't do that. I asked her to check with the chef. She said she was afraid to ask him! I ended up having a side salad to eat! The restaurant wasn't very busy, and this was Saturday night. On the way out, I asked for the manager, and Catherine spoke to me. She appeared incredulous at my story, and offered to pay for my dinner the next time. I live about 300 miles away, so I'm not likely to return anytime soon, even if I wanted to take her up on the offer! Whoever really runs this restaurant needs to fix things NOW!

A beautiful night to dine outside, however it was extremely noisy with guests, overhead music, street traffic and being seated adjacent to a work station despite making reservations in advance. Had to shout to each other to be heard.....less than optimal dining experience. Disappointing.

Where was everyone? I felt that we had the restaurant to ourselves. The food was excellent! I always worry that the fish would be over cooked. Not the case. My halibut was done perfectly. The cocktails where first class and less expensive than I would have expected. Nice presentation on my Old Fashion! This is my third or fourth dinning experience at Topaz, and I have never been in the least disappointed. My only disappointment as that one of the specials for the evening was listed as pork shank, one of my favorite pork dishes. Unfortunately, the sever informed me that they were not ready, need more cooking time. Better to cook properly than try and serve a tough shank. I will be back.

The restaurant was fairly empty for a Saturday night although the patio seemed full. They do not provide bread on the table and our server was a little pushy getting us to order. 2 people ordered the beef which was tiny for the price . The balance of our table ordered the whitefish and an fish special. they were very bland. We also ordered 2 Brussel sprout sides which were really shave spouts with very little taste. By 9:30 the kitchen staff was clanging pots and pans as if to give us a hint to leave. The place was otherwise quiet so we were able to hear ourselves but overall meh.
