3 deliveries before we received warm rolls. Both entrees were over cooked as well as the dessert tart which was burnt on the bottom

Nice ambiance for outside seating provided the food delivery truck is not stopping by during prime dinner hour. Inside seemed stuffy. Crab cakes were over seasoned and too salty. All food came luke warm, including New York steak, although cooked as ordered. I could only eat about half the steak. Important to bring own wine which is a plus. Desert menu looked amazing although did not sample. Not sure if worth trying a second time.

Great food but very pricey. One of the most expensive restaurants in the Shore area. Service was a tad slow. Would recommend they put speakers for music on the front porch as there was no crowd noise. Beautiful atmosphere as you are in a Spring Lake neighborhood.

Food was excellent but I was disappointed that the butter which was served with our dinner rolls was hard like a rock and could not be properly smeared onto the rolls

Mom and I for Mother’s Day...The place wants to be elegant, and is close, but...
The food...Mom with the Salmon, and I with the rack of lamb was excellent...the venue is old but classy, and the servers are personable and enthusiastic. The problem for me is the “feel” is wrong. I know it is restaurant in an old hotel...but, I don’t like the fact that it feels like an old hotel...maybe I am just getting too old and dotty!

Situated on a quiet, residential street in Spring Lake, this restaurant is classic and elegant. It’s a bit formal and perfect for an elevated experience every day or a special occasion.

Food was exceptional - we had Lobster Bisque, Salad, Filet and Pork Chop on bone. Everything was well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The social distancing was ok - but could have been a bit more spaced out.
