All the food is very yummy. This place is really cozy with a fireplace. The portion sizes are huge. They have tons of options from steak to fish to chicken. The staff is really nice. I never had a bad meal yet and have been coming here for about 5 years.

First, the place smells like a nursing home! Menu looked great, but the food left much to be desired. There are many places in the area that serve better food for the same or lesser prices.

Small, fancy restaurant. Took a while to get a mixed drink. There really wasn't any entrees offered for vegans. When I suggested something the chef said it would be to bland but didn't try to come up with anything else!

They had many gluten-free, vegetarian and locally sourced options and a nice wine list. It was very quiet mid-week with only a few diners. Staff was attentive and friendly.

we had an early dinner before a concert at MGM grand. The food choices were good; they list all the fat and caloric content so it makes you think about what you are eating. It was quiet, the service was excellent and food pretty good but not outstanding. THere was a wedding in the ballroom next door but noise wasn't... More
