I stopped by for a little down time, and sat at the bar. Service isn't overly 'warm', and you really have to click to find the 'friendly'. That said, they are 'on it' to ensure you have all you need. I tried the Philly Cheese...More

Been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Décor is phenomenal (it's an old bank); service is impeccable; and food is outstanding. A bit pricy, but worth every penny.

Great service, wonderful food. I loved that several of the entrees could be ordered in "appetizer size", which means I was actually able to be served an appropriate amount of food. Hope that popover recipe is on the internet somewhere.
