I've passed this place up many times for lunch thinking it would come at a high-end price. I was totally wrong. The menu has a varied selection in all price ranges. The selections in the "Entrees" section of the menu are priced high (no surprise there), but it's the selections on the "Burgers" and "Plates" section that I felt were... More

I have to say this meal was out of this world. We got the filet and also the lobster burger. Oh my both were delicious. The green beans with onions and tomatoes are prepared in such a sauce that I would order it as an entree!!! Service was tremendous. Highly recommend. Flourless chocolate cake with raspberries is a must if... More

We come here often for lunch and it's always a special occasion. One of the reasons is Chef James Shields' willingness to let us place special orders. We always call a few days in advance and the response is always positive. We especially love his treatment of fresh foie gras. It's never exactly the same and it's always spectacular. Today... More

As a lover of sophisticated, upscale dining. Willing to pay the price to have the experience desired, as a couple, we came to celebrate a birthday. Coming in, outside the front door is crowded with people dressed like they are going to a county fair, glaring at my partner and I who are wearing dinner jackets like they had never... More

It's been months since I visited this restaurant and I suggested it to friends and i was delighted once again with the service, the food and the atmosphere. As a former New Yorker it reminds me of the great wood panelled and elegant restaurants in NYC. Our waitress was very professional & accommodating. When she heard my friend was celebrating... More

This is certainly a fine dining restaurant. I was here for lunch and the food was excellently prepared and served. I think it is a bit pricey for lunch but it really is an excellent meal. I usually have one of their salads for lunch when I go. Enjoy

Our family had a reservation for 9 to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. They put a bit of confetti around his spot and surprised him with an assortment tray for dessert. All of our meals were fabulous. The truffle fries were heavenly, as were the citrus glazed salmon and green beans. When we have a special occasion to celebrate or... More
