“Expensive but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Had been here once years ago but for some reason never went back; it's as good now as before. Large private party in the main dining room so we were seated in a small side room which I much preferred - pretty space and quiet enough to talk. Nice wine list by the glass (my husband and I never want the same wine). I had interesting beet and goat cheese salad, he liked the chopped salad. Was a special occasion so we popped for steak and lobster entrées -- nice size portions and cooked to perfection. In honor of my birthday I was offered complimentary dessert of my choice. Excellent service, professional, attentive and not rushed. Enjoyable evening, we'll remember to go back sooner!

“Quiet, elegant, pleasing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We were a group of 7 on Mother's Day evening. Despite having had a long, busy weekend, our waitress was exceptional. She was professional, pleasant, knowledgable, and patient. Though we were the last customers to leave the restaurant, we did not feel rushed. Each of us had very fine food, including steak, salmon, and chicken. Salads were also very good. Even the music was most enjoyable, just loud enough to be appreciated.

“Wow...Unexpectedly good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We came in for a meeting with Walmart and grabbed dinner here since it was next to the Courtyard. I was expecting a casual bistro-type restaurant, but it was much, much nicer than that. This was just a hair below upscale dining. Make sure you dress nice. The food was unbelievably good, and the selection of wine fantastic. Will definitely return.

“Good food, service ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Tried the RG because it was next to the hotel. Had the sea bass with risotto which was absolutely perfect. Sat in the bar with the rest of the business diners. Not busy but service was slow. I am here for three more days and will go back again while in town. All in all, worth very penny. Give it a try and you won't be sorry.

“Fantastic Food, Service, and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Went away Happy and worth a trip back over and over again. I have been here several times but last night was over the top. The food is fantastic cooked to perfection and the presentation is well done. Our waiter was fantastic and we smiled all night long because of the whole experience. You know its great when you wake up the next morning and talk about the evening and the whole experience. In the words of Arnold --- Ill be Back!
