I have only been there for lunch, and though the food was pretty good, it was overpriced and the service was mediocre

We have eaten here several times for lunch. It has been great each time. Food is well presented and delicious. Drinks are ample and the restaurant has a good wine selection.

Stopped by while we were in the area for an early dinner. They were still serving off the lunch menu which was fine. We got to try the food without racking up a huge bill. Beautiful contemporary decor with nice music playing in the backround. A nice glass of wine and a local beer to start. Hubby had a nice... More

Beautiful inside and out. Beautiful bar and atmosphere nice fireplace and have never had a bad meal there. The acoustics are not that great and prices are on the higher side. It is definitely worth the trip

Lovely dining/ bar room. Plentiful parking. Lovely waitress and good service. Beautifully presented entree. Only caveat: with this scallop dish there were only four scallops. Six would have been nice! I never understand these seemingly upscale places that decide to cheap out on ingredients. Not sure I would return, and that's a shame!

Nothing special about this place. With the price you pay it should be a lot better. Wasn't very tasty....best thing was the candied nuts in the salad. We went when it was dead. Sat at the bar and not once did the female brunette bartender ask how our food was or if we needed anything which was okay but was... More
