We were out for husband's birthday dinner, and since we had gotten a gift certificate from our daughter that was given to us on Valentine's Day, so finally we decided to use it..made reservations for 6:30 p.m. When we arrived the place was pretty much empty. The atmosphere was very nice and back grown music and lights dimmed. We were... More

My dad and I have lunch here at least once a month. I take visiting friends and family here each chance I can get. The menu is akin to Not Your Average Joe's. The price is very good for the quality of the food. The Paninis are AMAZING - I have literally dreamt about them. I love the Super Buono,... More

The evening started off nicely with a warm welcome and really good hot bread and dipping oil with spices. From there it went downhill. We realize that a new person was being trained and when you have to ask for butter three times and remind the server to bring the wine, we gave it a pass. I might add that... More

For lunch with my girlfriend - place is bright and clean, staff friendly and accommodating. And the food ... VERY tasty! Tuscan turkey panini is complex and satisfying, pastrami panini is nice and spicy. Well above any expectations for a first time here.

My wife and I are now regular visitors since the ownership changed hands earlier this year. You will probably note that the recent reviews reflect the new and improved venue. We stopped going there a few years ago when the food and service started to decline. After seeing the "new ownership" sign we decided to give it a try. Everything... More

Didn't Know What To Expect From Looking Outside But The Food Was Excellent Perfectly Cooked And Large Portions. The Service Was Great And Very Attentive. Pricing Was Average For A Nice Dinner. Atmosphere Was Just Right. Open Kitchen And Large Bar. Not To Crowded For A Friday night Either.

They made exactly what we wanted. Great menu. Server Sarah was wonderful. We will definately be back!! They had a special on bottled wine while we where... More

I just ate at this restaurant and the food is fresh and cooked to order. Whoever wrote to say that they paid $100.00 for the bill eating Chicken Parm and Fettucini Alfredo with 2 cocktails probably had more than 2 drinks. Those meals are about $15.00 each so there's no way the bill could be close. And if prices are... More
