We were really disappointed. We got there early, no problem but we felt rushed since another drink was not offered nor coffee or tea. The steak had no taste and the pork chop was too well done. Even restaurant week menu is too much money when food and service are not excellent which is what our previous experiences have been.

West end cafe is reliably good. From the hot rolls to dessert the food is fresh, very well prepared and a great value. They have some nice wines by the glass as well. I just had a terrific pork chop. I had lunch there a while back and that was very good too! I never hesitate to make a reservation there.

we went on Easter Sunday. They had the regular menu and prices and some specials I come to this restaurant often. The food is always great. Staff is good, attentive but not overbearing.The holiday was handled like any other day. Often other restaurants have limited menus, seatings, inflated prices on a holiday. this was business as usual which is a very good thing. Always have a hard time deciding what to order they have so many great choices. desserts are fantastic.

The entree menu is on the small side but the recipes are unusual and the food excellent. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. A bit pricey but the food well worth it. I found the $12 for a glass of wine ridiculous. I would recommend it for a special occasion.

The food was fair at best and and over priced. We all had different dishes varying from Salmon,Chicken and Steak. We all agreed that this restaurant is highly over rated. We were also rushed to place our orders and rushed through our meal. There are so many better places than this and we will not be coming back .

Always a reliable place. Food is consistent. Menu could use an update with new choices for regulars who have eaten everything on the menu a few times. But the chef never disappoints. Great value for price fix. Enjoyable evening as always.

We visited this Antares on a very busy night. Saint Patrick's day. When we arrived for a reservation the place was packed and behind schedule. They did their best to seat us but they are running about 45 minutes late. They were very polite and tried to make it up to us by bringing an appetizer. Our meal was very good and so was the service. large selection on the menu and we left happy.
