Nice atmosphere. Upscale. Clean. Small. Just a shame it's across the street from a junk store. Plan on spending some cash. Food is delicious. Don't get the side salad with your meal. It is one bite. Opt for the fries instead and get your monies worth.

The atmosphere is great, dark, upscale, and relaxing. Perfect for date night or even a nice dinner with the family. We had the beef tenderloin, which was done perfectly medium rare as... More

Food and service was excellent. never had a better salmon. All was presented in the "bold" fashion, thus creating a very unique... More

This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. Food was lovely and service was expedient, despite there only being two dining room staff on. Fish tacos were yummy, grilled pear salad and Chipotle soup were as good as any dishes I've had anywhere. My wife had an excellent potato chips encrusted snapper, though the sides were a... More

Nice meals and good service. They succeed in delivering consistently good food of a higher level than the typical bar food prevalent in the area. Good prices. Would frequent more often if not located downtown.

Small restaurant with excellent food and wine. It really pays to have reservations. Not a great location for a restaurant but, they make up for it with the service and unique foods!

We met family from across the state to eat a holiday lunch here. My husband and I had eaten here before and our relatives were delighted with our choice. Two of us had the ahi tuna sandwich, which was outstanding. Another person had the salmon salad and the other the reuben sandwich, all equally delicious. Two people had fries, which... More
