Underwhelmed

Been here twice and haven't been particularly impressed. Have decided to give it one more shot and then if still underwhelmed, then it will go on the "we won't be back" list. Just average at best, small portions for the price which is not inexpensive, service fine, bar is fine, but restaurant... read more

I have a simple rating for restaurants. Would I go there again? The answer here is no. Salad was over dressed. Special seafood entree at $27 was anything but special and the pasta was over cooked. Service was good and the overall decor and ambiance pleasant but I went for the food hence my poor rating. There are better options... More

Neighborhood place with okay food. Probably still too expensive. Strange layout. We share the chicken dish, which then makes it a good deal

Terrible acoustics, difficult to have a conversation. Sound of conversations from far side of dining room can be heard. Food sounds exquisite with fancy menu descriptions, yet nothing special when eating it. Service was very slow, even though this was an unrushed meal. I ate at this place when it had a different name a few years ago, and it... More

The food is delicious here. Great Martinis and creative cocktails, too. But - the one negative if you are looking for a quick meal and not necessarily a place to spend the better half of an evening out - the service is slooooow. I don't mean the wait staff - they are great - it's the pace of the meal.... More

Went for a birthday to have some drinks. We had dinner at the bar and the pasta dishes were very good. Drinks were good as well. Nice place to go to.

Formerly Glory's, this restaurant has wonderful charm great food and a quaint bar with very knowledgeable and creative bartenders. Spend an hour and be treated like you are a regular. Look for Lindsay at the bar and ask her to make you a pistachio martini... if you are undecided they will create a new drink on the spot for you.... More

This was the best homemade mushroom ravioli I've had since Italy!! The atmosphere is very dark and rustic. It's worth the visit.

Went for date night with my husband last night. Had 7pm reservations and when we arrived, the place was dead. Kind of odd for a Thursday night, but whatever. Hostess seated us in a nice secluded table. Our first impression was "wow"! The place is nicely decorated and very romantic. Only downfall so far is the ac was blasting and... More
