Food was delicious as always. I was very disappointed in the service. It seemed as if we were invisible to our waiter. We were celebrating a birthday and waited forever to get a dessert menu. Needless to say I did not leave a very good tip.

First time there, not a great experience. We arrived early and let the hostess know we’d wait in the bar which was right by her station. She forgot to tell us our table was ready then acted surprised when we asked, I think to the effect of “yeah it’s been ready”. What?! Then we were seated way in the back where it was freezing. Asked to be moved, that seemed to put out our server. After dinner, which was really good actually, no additional requests were made. Ie; do you want coffee, etc... after paying what we paid for dinner I would’ve expected to be more impressed. Overall great food but not treated great.

Quesadillas were cold I had it sent back. Caesar salad was excellent! White fish special was delicious but could have been hotter. Clam chowder was really rich and yummy! Served really hot! Kind of noisy.

Our server was wonderful, but the food/ atmosphere were somewhat subpar for the price. We probably won’t be back, but if we lived closer I could see us returning in a pinch.

We had a comfortable booth and great food. Love the mustard chicken and the short ribs and a great side salad to go with it. We celebrated a birthday and they brought him some free ice cream. They also gave us some money off of the corkage fee

As always, the service was super-friendly and professional. The wine was superb, and the food? Well, if etiquette rules allowed, I would have licked the plate clean! I had the pasta special with Mary's chicken & prawns. I would have had creme brûlée for dessert, but I've been too loose with my food intake and need to lose those pounds I previously lost.

Overall a nice meal out. Our flatbread starter was excellent, salad and side veggies very nice, braised short rib excellent. Our two pasta dishes were not to our liking, too bland and gummy. Our molten chocolate cake excellent . Unfortunately, our server was a bit off their game. A glass of wine was forgotten, pacing of the meal a bit rushed with entrees brought out before starters finished. Our server was gracious in gifting our dessert for the various mistakes. We'll be back but we'll steer clear of the pasta.

2 things. (1)reservation was at 8 pm for just 2 people. We arrived at 745. We weren’t seated until 830. So we waited about 45 min. (2) My filet mignon didn’t look like everyone else’s. Mine was flat and long like a New York steak. Filets usually are tall and more rounded. Anyway that’s my review.

I always enjoy sitting with a friend in one of the booths for two on the left of the restaurant. The noise level is low, the service is always great no matter where we are seated; and the Zinfandel menu is marvelous. They have all the goodies I like, so I always know I will have a wonderful lunch or dinner.

We love Zinfandel. Kudos to our server. She really is quite wonderful. Only 4 stars for food this time. Although the crab cakes have plenty of crab (great), they were rather mushy and lacked taste. Unusual misfire for a kitchen that always puts out fabulous food.
