Took wife here for 25th Anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised that our reserved table had a "Happy 25th Anniversary" with our names on it when we got there. The service was excellent and the soft guitar playing was superb. We had Steak and Lobster and it was great. Our waiter even gave us a surprise for desert. It is somewhat... More

Hands down by the far, The best place to enjoy a top notch dinner out on the town. Starting from the atmosphere, live guitar music playing through out the restaurant, the ambience glowing at every angle. The friendly and very knowledgable staff to offer recommendations, tips and assist you with the wide selection of the items on the menu. We... More

Every other steak house was closed on Monday so when we got down the list we jumped on this place. Excellent food and service. They really pay attention to details. Clean and really cool place. They have an awesome patio for music. I would go back for that.

I loved the music and the friendly environment, I was not completely blown away with the food but it was good. I will for sure come back when in the valley again.

The food and ambiance is great. There are both indoor and outdoor seats and they had a person playing live. Perfect place for a romantic date. Also its located on 17th street so after dinner you can go out to one of the many bars or clubs there.

The sound is not absorbed by any soft surface (no carpet, tile only). Other than that , everything was great. I had the rack of lamb. it was wonderful. There was a... More
