I can't keep count how many times I've been to this place and brought different friends almost all the time. It's so pleasing from the ambiance to the food selection, that I'm delighted to suggest this restaurant everytime somebody wants a good dining experience. Not only are the foods delectable, they're in sufficient portion. The variety of cocktails are tasty... More

Absolutely packed tonight! One of many visits here. We sat at the bar. We had the pleasure of watching Sam and Tammy, the owners, work together behind the bar. I have been in business for myself for many years and in watching these two well you can just see the dedication and love they have. They are the leaders of... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The quality, and selection of dishes was impressive. The presentation was unique. The waitstaff was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. While a little pricey, it is worth the money, and I look forward to returning when in Merrillville again.

We love going to asparagus! The appetizers are all so wonderful. We've had so many but I would recommend the meatballs and any of the crispy rolls. The spicy lemongrass beef is my personal favorite and I'm not a spicy food lover so it's not so spicy! Next up the martinis/drinks! They always have kind of martini on special, but... More

My meal was so loaded with salt that it was inedible . I ordered the Asparagus Lovers Scallops & Shrimp. My son ordered the mahi mahi, which he said was good, but his vegetables were also inedible because of the sodium level. Honestly, for what we paid for this, I'd have expected better. The lobster spring roll was very good... More

My wife and I frequently enjoy having dinner in the lounge on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month when they have live Jazz from 6:30 to 10:30. When they have Roger Harris it is like being at the Blue Note in New York. No cover, no minimum, as at Andy's on Hubbard in Chicago, and the ambiance is... More

Went here with a friend for lunch. It is beautifully decorated & we were greeted quite warmly. I wanted to go here because of their menu. I love Pho & not many places have it. We started off with 2 different spring roll appetizers. One had a peanut sauce the other had a plum sauce. They were excellent. I got... More

This restaurant is tastefully decorated. The layout is nice. Our server, Karen, was fairly knowledgeable. I ordered the Asparagus Lovers Scallops & Shrimps. It was good but slightly salty, probably too much soy sauce. My husband ordered the flank steak which had the same salty issue. We waited a little longer than I expected for the food to be served...

The menu is diverse French-Asian and the descriptions only hint at the wonderful beauty and delicious aroma and taste if the food. Drinks are unique and tasty. If you've never been please save up a couple of bucks and go of go. You will be... More

I went with a group. Service was great and the place is nice, but the price was outrageous for food that I could pay less than half the price for down the street (and better). The noodles were a strange texture and the dish was too salty. Sangria was good. Overall, I would try it again,but something different for sure.
