Enjoyable

We have always had a good meal here. The food is very good. The tables are a bit close together so it can get noisy.

Great selection of drinks and some nice appetizers. we settled on an escargot tower which was simply amazing in presentation and taste. Martinis were good too. Prices are high end but all items are well planned and would taste great. We will be going back.

We went on the recommendation of a friend and weren't disappointed. We had the pork tenderloin and steak, shared a Caesar salad and dessert special and enjoyed it all. This is now our new favourite local restaurant.

Just wanted to unwind and have a great meal, had a couple of drinks, enjoyed Oysters Rockefeller and the Escargots tower.....simply delicious. Shared a Caesar salad and it was full of flavor and lots of garlic......just the way we like it. My wife had the King crab dish and I had the 12 ounce Rib Eye steak.......just wonderful. Everything was... More

Open kitchen restaurant lets you sit in on the action. Chef Karl Lekavy and Sous Chef Josh Lagerwarf demonstrated their craft and interaction with the patrons. Filet of beef was cooked to my likeness and served with a min potato and vegetable medley topped with rosemary glace. Matrie'd was courteous even to the point of loaning me his glasses after...

Our server was extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. All of us ordered the feature dinner - 10 0z sirloin steak with shrimp and Béarnaise sauce. Each couple shared an appetizer -... More

We have come to this restaurant over the years for different occasions, and have always been pleased. From the minute you walk in, you are treated like royalty. The service is attentive without being overly intrusive and the food is over the top in quality, taste and presentation. For the most recent visit, I ordered salmon crispy skin with mashed... More

Fish was cooked perfectly with good portions. Another guest ordered prime rib and king crab. Everything cooked as requested and no complaints but was disappointed... More

From the service and the drinks to the appetizers and main course back down to the desert absolutely spectacular! Our waitress Tanya was extra special a pleasure to have as a server. As a martini drinker, Alyssa made the best dirty Grey Goose martini that I've ever had in my life! My steak was cooked perfectly crowned by the truffle... More
