We came for the Valentines dinner. It was our first time here. We loved the look, the lighting and the view. Our waiter was very good and loved how he could explain the menu. The 4 course meal was great and the food was fantastic. I even tried hummus and it was great! We really enjoyed ourselves and the complimentary valet parking was definitely a plus.

Overall the food was fantastic. (We had the Valentines day prix fixe menu). The drinks (specialty cocktails and a suggested wine pairing) were not great which is disappointing because they were more expensive than other similar restaurants.

The food was very good, as usual, but it was a very busy night due to the Loppet event, so service was slower and less attentive than I remember from previous visits.

I was lured in by a Groupon. The service, (bartender), was excellent. Very attentive. We had the guacamole, which was very good. I then had the Thai steak salad. The steak was a perfect medium rare. It had a wonderful rub on it. The salad was very aromatic with mint, cilantro, lettuce and a few other things. The dressing was a nice light vinaigrette with a bit of fish sauce to brighten up the flavor. Yumm...
My wife had the Moroccan egg scramble. Very unusual flavors and very good. The sausage was also very unexpected flavor wise. A really good dish if you want something more than the usual egg options. The decor is very sophisticated and warm. I am going back! A++++

Food was pretty good. Waiter was good especially when a meal didn’t come. We got free dessert and the meal taken off. The hostess was not very friendly when we checked in and when clearing our dishes. Might go back.

They have valet!!! Great neighborhood place. If u don’t care about food and just need a nice little place to eat/ drink and don’t care that the menu NEVER changes then meet friends, take girls, watch football alone or whatever. It’s easy and since valet starts at 5 pm.... Service was a solid good. Just has NO personality.

This was a very pleasant surprise. We had a Groupon and decided to give it a try. This will be on our regular rotation in the future. I guess that's why they do the Groupon. We had the pork chop and salmon with pierogies one of each salad, split an order of wings and creme brulee. The dessert was the weakest--everything else was superb. And free valet parking.

Food was good, but a little bit pricey. Sever Justin was mediocre at best. Free valet was inattentive as a few of us stood by the clearly marked station in the cold rain while the two staff huddled in a little office.
