We have been here in the past, but this was the first time in over a year. They have maintained their quality.
The mushroom ginger soup was creative and flavorful, reminded me of gingerbread.
The duck bruschetta was very good and also flavorful. The fatty character of the duck was balanced by the salad bites underneath.
We shared the filet mignon , plenty for 2,but cooked perfectly with a delicious reduction.
Wines were good and reasonably priced.
Strongly recommended.

Thank Robert L

The salmon was sumptuous. And, the salad absolutely delicious. My dining companion really liked the lamb shank. The waitress was awesome. Calamari was unique in that it was stuffed with crab. The rose was so good. I definitely would come and bring friends.

We dined here for dinner before a show. The host was very accommodating and even asked if we were attending a show. When we said we were he said I'll make sure your server knows - and he did. Our server was Lydia, she was extremely nice and attentive without being overbearing. We split the Elixir salad - which was delicious - I'd probably order a whole one the next time and not split it. I had the seared scallops special and it was delicious. My partner had the shrimp scampi, which was not the usual scampi of garlic and butter - it was in more a cream sauce and it had tomatoes and mushrooms, he wasn't wow'd by the dish. Then we had beautiful desserts - creme brulee and La Joie de Chocolate (see picture). The chocolate dish was amazingly presented and very, very dense/heavy. Easily can be split between 2 or even 4 because it's so decadent and filling. We will definitely go back; although we might sit farther away from the windows - there was an odor of diesel fuel from the rail yard that the restaurant backs up to. On the one hand it's cool if you love trains, but the odor is not that appealing!

Since this is a chef run restaurant, they can modify many of their dishes to be vegan. I found they're vegan options limited but very tasty.
