Pretty atmosphere, Excellent food, Nice location, outdoor seating

Had an excellent dinner here the other night. The restaurant if visually quite striking, with the Art Deco prints and wall dividers. Interestingly, the front of the restaurant is far noisier than the booths / tables in the back, so if you want a quieter more secluded meal, sit in the back (there... read more

My wife and our daughter enjoyed our dinner here immensely. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. We has the swordfish special at the waiters suggestion and were quite pleased. We all had different appetizers and again enjoyed them all. The wine selection is decent and there were many reasonably prices choices. We will be back.

Lovely Hyde Park neighborhood restaurant with terrific culinary skills and a charming outside eating area on Howard Ave, great for people watching. Started dinner by sharing a very tasty Caesar's salad and a very generous Caprese salad. Spouse enjoyed an entree of shrimp risoto (with huge shrimp!) while I ordered a wonderful, Asian inspired pan-seared red snapper. Our server, Jesse,... More

We had a very positive experience dining here. Our waiter was attentive and quite helpful. We had appetizers that were delicious. The roasted Brussels sprouts were tasty. The crab soup had chunks of crab in it. Our entrees were lamb and filet mignon. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the filet was unbelievable. The jalapeno sweet mashed potatoes were... More

Decided to go for happy hour, before dinner. Staff at reception were not overly accommodating and we had to press to be put on a waiting list for a table. The choice of draft beers for happy hour was limited to two options and did not include our preferred choice. We had 18oz rib eye, which was ok, but not... More

Met a friend for a glass of wine. She had to wait a long time to get service as it seemed like the bartender was checking the hostess stand related to dinner reservations. Not too friendly but the wine was very good!
