Dined here tonight with family and friends (10 of us). We had reservations and were seated right on time with a front window table (great people watching). I ordered the nightly special--Beef Medallions with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. The medallions were out of this...More

The soup of the day (Russian Borsht) and half bacon Benedictine sandwich was a tasty not too expensive or filling lunch. Service was great. It was not very crowded at noon. Parking is always a hassle, but street parking is available for a short walk.
