Nasty night, but we were seated promptly on time. Found a great bottle of wine on the menu, not cheap, but not overpriced for this bottle. Shrimp cocktail was chopped which was interesting, but still good. The other appetizer, crostini with mushrooms and boursin cheese...More

Great location in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, an easy walk to DeVos Hall, the Museums, or the Van Andel Arena. The menu is sufficiently broad with a bias toward Steak but with a few very good fish (e.g. Salmon, Mahi-Mahi), poultry, pork, and...More
