We went here with friends and had an assortment of menu items along with the wine of the evening. Every item was very tasty. My favorite was the Kobe Sliders. Will definitely come here again.

We walked into the restaurant on a busy Friday night. They seemed busier than they anticipated because we weren't greeted for ten minutes and then told that we could seat ourselves. The server was super rushed and service was very slow. We have been there...More

Well, it WAS New Years Eve. They had a fixed price dinner with somewhat limited choices compared to their "regular offerings". For $75 per person you had a choice of 6 appetizers, 6 entree's and 5 desserts. The choices weren't too bad. The Farmhouse salad...More
