Took my office staff to this restaurant yesterday (Thursday) for Dinner.Had made early reservations so could head out to the place right after the office closed. We were promptly seated and chose to eat on the porch given it was a warm day. The surroundings are pleasant.Service was prompt and generally efficient in keeping with the price level of the restaurant. Silverware was removed and replaced and the table unobtrusively swept for breadcrumbs after our first course.The menu is limited and entrees take some time to bring out telling me its not a nuked frozen meal. Presentation is artful, portions are the big Americanized size. Appreciate the waiter suggesting we go half size with the salads as what is listed on menu is entree sizes. Food is well seasoned and none of us had any complaints.While there were a few tables occupied at 5:30 by 7:00 it was getting busy. We left at 9:00 pm and the place was still hopping- not bad for a Thursday night in September.Special requests were handled accurately and with a smile "without the prosciutto for the penne vodka, but add some grilled chicken". There were 3 dessert options- freshly made in house it appeared.
Total for 4 (1 had a martini, ordered two deserts only and 3 had coffee) came to $118. Not bad at all.
We will be back
