It was the perfect American Bistro when they were opened. I knew all the staff and the owner Don. Too bad Dresner's was a great neighborhood place that kept Yorkville alive! So sad.

Local place that I have gone to for years and always felt comfortable. The restaurant and food are good and consistent but the bar has changed. My advice, hit this place on Weds and Thurs nights. Great bartender on those nights.
