The atmosphere and architecture of this converted bank is timeless. The food is very good however, the service is anything but prompt. Upon arrival with a table for five, no recommendations were made for wine although everyone was clearly considering it. After the appetizer arrived and was consumed, the waitstaff had to apologize twice as to the delayed dinner service. The restaurant was nearly empty. Adding insult to injury, the waitress has no qualms reminding us that the restaurant was closing at nine.

We wanted to try their new menu, although we were happy to see some items remained, especially their Short Ribs dinner. We had an excellent waiter, whose suggestion of their special - Stuffed Pork Chop Milanese was incredible. Very cool re-use of an early 1900's Bank.

The ambience is great in this old converted bank. We decided to return to this restaurant after a previous less than exciting experience and unfortunately it was better but nothing great. Menu was interesting when reading and presentation was nice when arrived, but taste was nothing to talk about. This was not just my meal, but my wife's also, so this time is average. Very hesitant to return to try again. Not worth the cost.

A converted bank the interior of this entry is beautiful. The fare it serves is less so. The prices were high for what you receive and the enters were so-so. The young wait staff could also use some additional polish. This place has a lot of potential, so I hope management addresses some of these issues to moves the restaurant out of the mediocre and into the memorable.

The waiter was lovely and the food was terrific! The calamari and mac & cheese were our two favs! I ordered a special which was steak that was cooked to perfection.
