While the host stand personnel can be a little aloof, the variety on the menu and taste of the food make this a great place to visit. Service is always good, the atmosphere is quiet and understated. Great place for a business lunch or quiet celebration - love the great seafood selections available here! Somewhat pricey, but a cut above... More

Very pretty but noisy (aren't all new upscale restaurants?!) - but the food and bar more than make up for it. Consistently 8 outa 10.

We have made this restaurant one of our haunts. The first trip was to meet our daughter's fiancee and his parents for dinner. The lamb was exquisite, the quail was delicate and tender and sides were garlic spinach and polenta. Wait staff were attentive and offered recommendations that did not disappoint. The wine selection was impressive as well. Next trip... More

Each month, a family member rents the "back room" for a family celebration of sorts. We toast birthdays, great report cards, special accomplishments, and special family visitors, as well as catch up with the "goings on" in each family. The food is delicious, the drink plentiful and the fun is enormous!

We brought my mother here for brunch to celebrate her birthday. This was our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised. The service, food, price and ambiance were wonderful. We plan in coming back again soon.

A favorite place for lunch. Never too busy, and fairly quick service. Menu and pricing a little upscale but consistently good. I recommend their soups and salads- always fresh. Love the petite salmon filet but whatever you order, you MUST try the flash fried spinach! This is truly a unique delicacy and they always get it perfect!

We stayed in the same plaza as the restaurant so this was a convenient place to eat our first meal in Texas upon arriving. Food was good we had dinner salads and the hot spinach dip...all very tasty. We ate here again another day and enjoyed that meal as well. The only negative is that the restaurant itself does not... More

We were celebrating our 45th anniversary and wanted to try someplace new. We had heard some good things about this place, but did not expect what we found. It was one of the best dining experiences of my 60+ years. They advertise "casual fine dining". It is a rather casual atmosphere but also a fine quality eating place. It does... More

We ate here because the place we originally went to was closed. A fortunate turn of events. The place is very handsome, lively and comfortable. The food was well done and a bit innovative. The flash fried spinach was noteworthy. Well worth a visit.

The service was adequate but too many mistakes were made. We had the duck breast and it was good but not anything to write home about. We had wanted the steak but $38 for an 8 ounce filet was just too much. You can get a steak at Vic and Anthony's or Morton's or Del Frisco's for that price and... More
