Attended a lovely wedding shower over the weekend. The wait staff was extremely attentive and alert. Atmosphere is quiet which makes for pleasant conversations. Requested a cup of coffee and Ernie the Bartender brewed a fresh pot and 'found' me roaming around. That is service!...More

Dined at this establishment, for dinner, twice in 5 days and both experiences were wonderful. Seared pork chop on one visit and prime strip on the other. Nice atmosphere for small or medium sized group. Highly recommend the blueberry bread pudding, for desert, as well!

Our food was not only presented beautifully but it tasted very good. There were 3 of us and all of our dinner meals were very tasty. We sat in their outside area and the experience was enjoyable.

Enjoyed a business dinner there with a larger group. Appetizers, steaks, sides are all spot on. The wine list is pretty comprehensive. Ambiance is cool, especially the huge mirrors on the wall. Love the place and will come back.

If you can get past the prices you'll have a good time and good food. Bartenders are friendly and helpful and food is typically very well prepared. They do use a lot of garlic and their food which doesn't treat me very well but if...More
