The food was good but pricey-$40 for breakfast before the tip. The server was attentive. It was noisy but not the fault of the restaurant.

I stand by my very favorable comments in my previous review; however, my duck was also overdone, as was the duck of another person at our table. Despite the fact that we both asked for "medium-rare", the insides were all tan, showing not even a touch of pink! It was still flavorful, but much of the duck taste was lost... More

The breakfast is delicious/outstanding. For lunch I ordered Cobb Salad, it was fresh and very good. I opted out for the kind of cheese that comes with the salad and request shaved parm. cheese. The server did it with a smile. Also the Chicken Sandwich is good. Comes with French Fries.

The food here was incredible! Coctails menu was really vast and they were perfectly crafted. I am not a huge fan of Manhattan clam chowder but it was amazing. Had fish tacos as an appetizer, they were really good. Scallop dinner was so good. They were prepared perfectly and the risotto it was served with was of the charts good.... More

The dim lighting made for an inviting atmosphere considering i had just been stuck in traffic for 2 hrs.

James Junk and staff have done a marvelous job - food preparation, decor, ambiance, and service is great! Excellent food - breakfast and dinner was delicious! The salmon was great and pre-fixed menu is a great option. A great spot for romantic night out! Pat & Bev
