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

I use d to love this restaurant, so this is a little tough to write. Two things happened on the same night, first, I asked to add a couple to our reservation for a total party of 4. I did this late in the afternoon of an 8:30 reservation. I was told that there was no more room. No big... More

Had heard great things about this restaurant. Went this evening [Thursday]. Were given a table upstairs, one of ten, nobody else up there. After taking our drink order 6 other groups arrived. Comfortable and pleasant ambience. Drinks were good as was the soup and salad. People at other tables were served their meals before us even though our order was... More
