Lovely Ambiance + Professional Staff.

Love the staff! Nice student waiter. Food and wine were very good. Appreciated that they have a kids menu. Had a Fenn Valley MI wine. Loved that they'll cork unfinished bottles. We'll go back!

Delightful service and a pretty room. The wine list is truly amazing - hundreds of bottles in stock. Wine flights available and fun. The food is excellent and plentiful. Try the cheese platter. The lamb was excellent Prices are fair. What's not to like?

Food and service were very good. A little pricey, however with WKAR member card we received one entree free. Not a large menu, but a nice variety of offerings that change on a regular basis. Great place for a nice evening out or before catching a show at the Wharton Center.
