The food was good but not very enjoyable due to loud music. We had to wait a long time for our waiter.

Got one of the best steaks I've ever had. Ask for the butcher's special. It was so good I ordered it twice. Everything we ordered was great.

Many delicious salads and the chicken is perfect. I went back twice! Especially enjoyed the butternut squash and feta salad and the beet and carrot sesame salad.

We were in the middle of the city sightseeing tour and decided to stop for lunch. The restaurant had amazing views of the Waterfront and the staff were polite and... More

Ate here three separate times. Everything is good with great prices. Drinks are lovely. Ask your server for the "big" steak. Very well priced meal and excellent ambience.
