The menu is interesting, the food is good, but the service is unbelievably slow. The last time we ate there the restaurant was virtually empty and it took almost 3 hours to get... More

Wonderful brunch. I favor the pumpkin pancakes while my husband likes egg benedict. We need to try lunch and dinner sometime. Few people on Sunday around noon so it was nice and quiet. Service was excellent.

Upscale dining. Excellent food. Waitress spilled a drink on our guest. I was a little disappointed that they did not offer a free desert or something to make up for the mess. Other than that great food, nice atmosphere.
