We've eaten there many times over the years and have never had a bad experience. The food is excellent and the service attentive without being obtrusive, The bartenders are pros and not just beer and blender specialists. Good wine list with a wide range of pricing. For a quick meal or appetizers and drinks, the bar area in fine but... More

I tried the beet salad with goat cheese and the stuffed lobster tail and my husband enjoyed the ancho chili coffee rubbed steak followed by creme brulee. The wine pairings complimented each course and not... More

The service was also fantastic, and we had a private room for it. I enjoyed it for sure. Next time, I'd like to eat up in the raised dining room in the middle... More

My third course choice was a ginger cake with lemon ice cream and a sour cherry sauce. The soup was quite rich but very tasty. The wild salmon was... More
