“Prix Fixe a good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stopped in for a late-ish dinner, not dissapointed.
I had the Prix Fixe dinner - steak frites, a salad and dessert.
The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and fries were crispy and not greasy - exactly the way I like them!
Desert was fine, not over the top, but not bad.
Fair selection of wines by the glass.
It was a bit chilly, so we asked to be seated indoors, but were seated at a table by a door to the patio - it was actully colder there than outside. That was the only glitch in an otherwise fine evening.

“pretentious and sycophantic service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Visited with husband and 10 year old daughter for evening dinner. Over the top service style and did not feel genuine. Very quiet (only 3 other patrons) but meal took 45 minutes to arrive. French onion soup (tepid), salmon dish topped with cheese had obviously been sat under hot pass. Believe 'owner' was eating with a "VIP" guest (as we were told by waitress) and so all delayed as waiting staff concentrated on their table. Not a great experience and a costly one. Final blow was a large rat running across covered eating area as we finished up our meal. Staff not overly concerned (owner ignored situation) but did take off ONE main meal cost. Will NOT be returning! Little less pretentious attitude and more GENUINE customer service and quality food would be advised.

“Really enjoyed our evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We really enjoyed the meal, the food and the service. The music was a bit louder than we would have liked but that was our only complaint. The wait staff was very attentive. The fish was cooked perfectly. We'll go back.

“Hamburger with truffle fries was the best I've had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stopped by for a quick lunch and ordered their hamburger with truffle aoili sauce and truffle fries and thought it was amazing. The flavor of the beef patty was some of the most impressive hamburger experiences we've had. The bun was also exceptional. The truffle fries were delicious and were devoured quickly. Can't speak for other dishes, but we left smiling after having this lunch.
