“A step above fast food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food is fresh and nicely prepared, but not very imaginative.
The focus is on meat and the service is excellent.

I want to love this place. It's cute, convenient, and reasonably priced. The menu is so appealing its hard for me to pick just one entree and the food tastes great; well, for the first few bites. Invariably, though (and well before I want to be done eating), whatever their "secret ingredient" is registers and my body revolts. Violently. So violently I can't eat for days. I didn't want it to be so. I went back again. And again. And, shame one me, again -- more than one time too many. Alas, to love, or not to love may be a questions but is not always a choice.

“Cool atmosphere - modern...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2008

Cool atmosphere - modern and cozy at the same time. But the food was very mediocre. The Cesar Salad had bottled dressing on it and was far from a real Cesar Salad you expect to find at a restaurant. Dinner was a rib eye steak with broccoli mashed potatoes and grilled zuccini......one word, "BLAND". The steak had zero flavor and needed to be drowned in steak sauce and ketchup just to enjoy. The mashed potatoes were fine, nothing special. Really broccoli is the big special ingredient? Amateur move. The "grilled" zucchini touched the grill only long enough to get grill marks but were fully raw and without taste. Ever think about a little salt? I say skip it. There are about 12 other restaurants within spitting distance....take your chance at one of them!
