Ezra's was one of our favorite local restaurants. They recently closed and reopened with a new owner and new chef. We dined there on a busy Tuesday night. The wait staff was largely the same and did their usual outstanding job. Some menu items remain the same such as the bento box. Having ordered this in the past we were... More

We tried to treat ourselves to a Sunday dinner here in November, only to find that it was closed and another restaurant is now using this site. Cannot evaluate new restaurant, because it in not open on Sunday.

Sad when you get the impression that they have to know you to get good service. We went in wanting to be pleased but it was not possible under the circumstances. Good food but Rick has some work to do...

My husband and I have gone to this restaurant for many years, through at least 3 owners. It is now owned by friends of ours, and their son is the head chef. He does an excellent job - the food is creative and tasty. The dining room is quiet and low light. Wait staff very friendly. Can't ask for more!

The service was very good and our server was attentive and answered all of our questions and requests. We purchased a dealsaver coupon that we will... More

The food is wonderful here! Flat iron steak and portabella fries are a must try!! This is a restaurant to try for a special occasion..a little pricey, atmosphere is lacking a bit for the level of the food, but definitely a favorite!

From the moment we were greeted at the door I knew I liked this place. From the simple, tasteful decor and wait staff all in black to a very nice wine list and varied menu, it all fit. Chris, our server was engaging, fun and knowledgeable. He was attentive, but not distracting. He was a delightful addition to the evening.... More
