Nice setting for Sunday Brunch

I went with my husband for Sunday Brunch and we both enjoyed the ambiance. The setting is lovely, the tables are set with table clothes, nice dinner ware and it all looks quite elegant. There was a piano player, and the staff are dressed in tuxedo's. The staff are friendly. I would recommend the... read more

The Olde School is like a fine suit. It fits great and you feel like a million dollars when you wear it. The ambiance of the place is distinguished without being garish. Gus greets you like an old friend and John at the piano always seems pleased as punch to see you. It is like an upscale Cheers. The wait... More

My wife and I celebrated a wedding anniversary recently at this fine restaurant and we were very satisfied with our dining experience. We were greeted at the door by the owner and we were promptly shown to our table. The waiter was professional and very well prepared to answer our questions, he was friendly and efficient, never missing a beat.... More

Can't thank Gus and the staff enough for the incredible care and attention to detail for my Mom's 100th birthday family dinner! Food was fabulous - accommodations made for my Mom's unique needs, as well as for my 23th month old great niece. Special bday cake with sparklers topped off a great meal. Special thanks to Annie and the wait... More

Had a wonderful Mothers Day dinner with family. Service and food both great. Piano bar was nice live music to enjoy while dinning. Treated like royalty. No wonder this was a stop for Queen Elizabeth few years back.

Make a reservation. Dress like you've been driven in a limo. Ask for the round, corner seat. You'll have a great time. Live piano music, attentive wait staff (Just try to get to the bottom of your glass of water!), a romantic atmosphere, great food, and the owner even stops by to see how you're doing. I've been going here... More
