Enjoy the garden patio!

This restaurant takes reservations, but get there a little early to enjoy the quaint bar upstairs! We had a late dinner in the garden patio. The view of the back of the stone building that is more than 150 years old, along with the fenced in garden, gives a European feel to this gem! We had the... read more

I used a Groupon to treat a friend to dinner for her birthday. It was a beautiful day so we opted to dine on the sunken patio. The patio is a nice private area with plenty of space between tables. My only criticism would be that except for a few metal chairs that matched the tables, the rest were rather... More

My husband purchased a Groupon for this place not really knowing much about it. Much to our surprise, we were incredibly impressed by the tastefully quaint atmosphere, and superb wait staff. I had the porterhouse, and it was fabulous!

I bought a Groupon for this place. After reading a few mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. My husband and I were both very happy. It was cute and cozy. We got there 10 minutes before our reservation on a Friday but were seated right away, after being given a choice to visit the bar first. Our waitress... More

We had a Groupon. We purchase lots of those as we love to try new places. This restaurant is quaint, but the tables are so close together it really gets quite noisy. Everyone just keeps talking louder. The food was very good. Because of having a Groupon we were told the things that were not available with the Groupon, which... More

This is very obviously a classy restaurant but we were not overly impressed. The tables inside were very close together making it difficult to have a personal conversation. The prices seemed high to us, which I can understand for the quality steaks they offer, but not for the other items. There were 2 of us and we got exactly 2... More

First off, if you go here, try to sit on the outside patio in back of the restaurant. Live music, twinkle lights, tons of fresh flowers and hanging baskets, water fountains bubbling! That alone was wonderful. Then you add in the fantastic food and we had a wonderful, delightful evening. The time went way too fast. Already planning our next... More

This place has great charm whether you are seated up or down. They even have a small bar with stools upstairs. The food is also outstanding, but it is a bit expensive for regular visits. We only go on special occasions now

Have been here 3 times, so in my limited experience, it has been amazing every single time. We have sat upstairs and down and found upstairs to be the way to go, but downstairs is quieter. Food has been top notch from beginning to end. Price feels reasonable for the quality of the food, although it is one of the... More
