Nice surprise

Pleasantly surprised. Very nice ambiance. Eat here on a Friday night with the wife and my daughter. Got right in even though we had called ahead for a reservation. Had the Potato Crusted Salmon. Very, very tasty. Great flavor. Service was exceptional. Would definitely recommend it.

We used to come here once or twice a month but will not be back; our last visit was a Tuesday evening in May. After being seated, our server came by and took our drink order, then disappeared for about ten minutes and finally returned with our drinks. Being a Tuesday, they were not very busy so we placed our... More

Attempted three times to make a reservation for a party of 15 on a mid Saturday afternoon. Was promised 3 times to receive a call back from the manager. Specifically told the person answering that we wanted to make a 15 person reservation. Never received a call back. Guess business is so good that they don't need to return phone... More

I was in Monroe on business so my restaurant selections were based on reviews and recommendations from the folks I was working with. The locals took us here, so I would assume it is one of the better places to eat in Monroe. I'll be honest, it was nothing special. Every larger town has a local Italian restaurant that the... More

Came here to celebrate our Anniversary and as we entered, we waited for the hostess to seat us in a very empty restaurant. The hostess walked up and said "We're closed tonight but let me see if I can seat you!" There was no sign as we approached the building saying it was closed for a private event. We were... More

Girls night out gathering for fun and conversation. Erica was our waitperson. Ordered the Chicken Antonio (new dish there). Pleasantly surprised, good taste and different; it is grilled chicken with angel hair pasta, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil and has goat cheese on it. Would recommend for your dinning pleasure. Erica was attentive to our beverages (my friends drank water... More

First time here, Savannah was attentive and patient (I had lots of questions). The bread was warm & fresh, both the tomato basil soup and French onion soup was fabulous! We had an issue with a steak, the manager was wonderful and made it right. The tiramisu is a must dessert. Enjoyable evening, we will be back for sure:)

Great atmosphere, friendly wait staff and excellent food. Go there mainly on special occasions. They cater to everyones pallet and if you don't see it on the menu they make it for you. Also, they do not rush you when your food comes and i greatly appreciate that.

My wife and I plus four kids went on a Saturday. Service was great and they were busy so they get A+ there. My food seemed to have came from Gordon food service though. The Marsala sauce could have came from a box. The chicken was over cooked and surprisingly small. My wife was very happy with her sushi. The... More

Based on Tripadvisor, we went to this restaurant after a long day of driving. It is always comforting to see that a restaurant that I have never been to before is busy. We were seated immediately upon arrival. The waitstaff was very personable and patient. The $12.95/$15.95 3 course dinner specials were a bargain! I had the minestrone soup, chicken... More
