The staff is friendly, helpful, and professional, and the service is exceptional! My wife and I ordered the Dover Sole which was perfectly... More

For high end dining on a special occasion or for a business lunch/dinner, this is a favorite of mine in the Westlake Village area. The prices are on the high side compared to other restaurants in the area, but the atmosphere is akin to some of the classy restaurants in Beverly Hills or on the west side of LA. They... More

I had lunch with an old friend who frequents this restaurant often. We both ordered the combined gaspacho/salad dish. The salad arrived but no gaspacho. While the ambience and quality of the food is quite as good as before, my friend says that this isn't the first experience that he has had recently of slipping service standards since the manager...

Food is good but not outstanding. Customer service is good specially if you are there for dinner. Happy hour gets very crowded and service can be slow. It is pricey are the portions are not large. For the price they should offer better bread and at least garlic butter to go with it while you wait for dinner.

My wife and I had a Turkey Melt sandwich and Fried Calamari. The server was extremely good, very polite, and attentive without being overbearing. We knew food would be a bit more expensive than our normal places, but every so often, it's nice to go and enjoy the food and service at a restaurant like this.

This is a great local restaurant with consistent five star service, excellent food - both at lunch and dinner. The steaks are perfect, and there are comfort food entrees like mac n cheese and chicken pot pie. All the normal favorites - crab cakes, trout, French dip sandwich, kobe beef burgers…..always excellent!
