Given its high rating and the high prices on the menu, I was expecting our evening to be very special but we left disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and the service throughout was excellent - attentive but not rushed which was just what we wanted. The evening started well with a good craft beer for...

Dinner tonight. Had the swordfish special and a mixed green salad. Food was excellent. Outstanding service by Zel. Sat on the rooftop deck (two flights of stairs to climb but worth it on a nice evening). Not a wine drinker but wine list appeared very extensive. Bread with olive oil a nice starter. Overall excellent but expensive.

From the attentive hostess and wait staff, to the supreme martinis, to the excellent food, this well decorated restaurant fulfilled our every expectation. Highly recommended.

My husband and I don't usually have appetizers, but the sushi looked so good that we decided to share a plate. Like Lady and the Tramp eating the piece of spaghetti, I found that I had eaten through more than my share of the line of sushi pieces before we met not-quite-in-the middle. We also split an excellent Caesar salad.... More

We went to Eolus to sit on the roof deck for drinks and ended up having a great meal. The sea scallops were unique and the trio of chocolate was a wonderful dessert. We went to Sow's Ear for our "fancy dinner" but Aeolus beat it hands down.

The food was delish. Sea scallops were fabulous. Husband loved the Dirty Dove martini with home stuffed olives.

The menu is quite cleverly assembled with a wide choice of excellent dishes. The bread was light with a crisp crust and was served with an excellent olive oil. Two of us chose Surf and Turf made up of delectable filet steak and a Maine Lobster tail. Both components were perfectly cooked. My steak was tender and our last diner... More

Fine dining and extensive wine list. A good selection of items on the menu and all prepared excellantly. Patio upstairs is nice in the summer, a bit more casual than downstairs.

Fabulous food a real treat matched with great wines. The service was great.. The owner came to check on our satisfaction with the evening and we couldn't be more satisfied. My nephew is a culinary graduate chef so we appreciate good food . This was great!
