Excellent food and service. It is a bit noisy and expensive but still good value. It is a good place for a romantic dinner.

We walked to bb's from the Hampton Inn early on a Friday evening. The host seated us promptly. We both had tasty and creative salads and shared an appetizer. I enjoyed a fish entree and my partner had a pasta entree. Both had a recommended wine selection. The entrees were very good and the suggested wines were satisfactory. My guest... More

Great meals and staff Over the TOP desserts only reason for 4/5 rating is the noise level. Very difficult to have soft conversations

Went for a business dinner. Arrived early for drinks and was dissapointed by the complete lack of creativity in there bar menu. Spirits were boring and obviously no fresh ingredients behind the bar, the mule was made of canned sour mix and ginger ale in a tin cup, zero attention to detail. I was excited to see they had swordfish... More

This restaurant had great reviews and was conveniently within walking distance of my hotel, so we gave it a shot for a business dinner. I had no trouble getting a reservation on a Thursday night, although the dining room is on the small side and was rather crowded. This didn't present any problem with noise though, as we were still... More

This place is crowded and noisy. But worth it! I had an omelet with lots of veggies. It was good. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place. Tons to try. Try the cake with the strawberries. Be prepared to share...the portions are huge. Service is good. Worth the trip.

In town for the NCAA tourney and looking for a nice place to dine. Found this little jewel in Trip Advisor and gave it a try. A little crowded (a good sign). Also a little noisy. Well , yeah.(see: crowded). But not offensively so. We both had the snapper which was perfectly cooked and perfectly presented. Service was impeccable and... More
