Great food, unfriendly service

We had a delicious meal here. The quality of the food and drink was very high - the lamb was particularly delicious. It's a shame that the service doesn't match. Our unsmiling waitress delivered the specials list while leaning against the wall, and propped herself against another table while taking... read more

A first time visit, and it won't be the last if I don't get lost finding it. I am in complete agreement with the praise in other reviews. However, it is not a byob establishment and features an ample wine list, w/bottle or glass options. A generous choice of beers and ales is also available. The lamb chops, pork chops... More

This is a byob restaurant. Food & service are excellent. Nice variety of fresh & different entrees on the menu & well presented. Good variety of appetizers too.

Excellent all around. A very creative menu and the service was top notch. Gnocchi like little clouds in a rich and savory Oxtail ragu. Will def be back for more

Enjoyed a birthday dinner with my family here and was impressed with the decor, the service and the food. Menu had a nice variety but we all ended up ordering from the night's specials. All of the food was well prepared and tasty. Servers were all personable and efficient. Overall a very enjoyable dinner. I would definitely return since there... More

I was in the mood for pasta so this was my choice. The portions are very generous and I liked my meal. My average rating is because the service was so aloof. Our waitress couldn't even smile and the look on her face told me there could be a million more places she would rather be.

Definitely expensive, but food was delicious, service was good, atmosphere was nice and warm and cozy. Great for a once in a while kind of place, or a celebration. ($$). Would definitely return.

This place is overrated. If you love sauces with cream and butter that mask the true taste of the food, you'll love the food. Don't bother unless you are impressed with white table clothes, inflated prices and rude staff. The outdoor seating is in the parking lot.

The restaurant is really welcoming, the decor really nice and the service great. I give the food an "ok" because the papardelle pasta was eiter ivercookec or had been sitting for a while. It was one big lump of pasta. It's a shame because the arugala and avocado salad was delicious and fresh, but the pasta .... I would not... More
