This place is a little hidden from the beaten path of downtown St. Joseph. We went there because of a coupon I found online, when I knew we were traveling to the area. It's a little pricey, but WELL worth it. We have been there a total of three times and we do not live in the area. The menu... More

Restaurant had some really interesting dishes and drinks. Other food was average. A few things were pretty bad. On the whole I would return especially for the paw paw fruit ice cream and martini.

Beautiful place, but the food was substandard. I had a pasta dish with sauce the consistency of water. I won't be returning.

My family and I love dining here whether it is for lunch or dinner. Recently, we checked it out for Sunday brunch and had amazing short rib tacos. Great! Soups are always a great choice and they have a lovely wine selection. You can't beat the location.

Ordered 2 bistro burgers and they were weak. The meat had good flavor but the fixings killed it! Small piece of soggy lettuce, small slice tomato that had the core in it. We asked for onion and it was again, 3 super skinny rings. Ordered it through room service and she forgot the ketchup/mustard/mayo, so by the time she came... More

Food was good, service was good wine list is good. Loved the Hook's blue cheese! Ambience was quite nice and close to the beach. The bar room was nicely decorated and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

This is a restaurant for golfers, retirees, and people who want something a little different but not that different. The menu bounces around a lot of recognizable, trendy ingredients such as goat cheese, fruit garnishes, fish, interesting beef cuts. But things are thrown together haphazardly . . . a reuben sandwich made with turkey and "jewish" rye would not be... More

Finally making a review on this local place. We go there a few times a year. The menu changes, but there are a few staples, like Duck, Fish Tacos.... Sometimes the menu is small, sometimes very large. Service is usually very good. Food is always tasty and a lot of dishes have a French flair. Recently, there has been a... More

Dinner for 2 Sunday night and I was not impressed, although I think it's because I ordered incorrectly. We ordered the charcuterie plate as an appetizer and it was very good. Entree was ordered and I went with the shrimp linguine @ $21, one of the more expensive. I asked our spot person what the sauce was. She needed to... More

Elegant ! But with relaxed comfort. Suit and tie or dressy casual. A warm cozy atmosphere to enjoy a delightful dinner. Seating can be indoors or outdoors with a beautiful view. You won't be disappointed. A place to "impress".
