“Good food but not the wow we expected.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The food was very good. The waiter acted put out that we brought our own wine but the website advertised no corkage fee on Monday. We brought a special bottle with us because of the advertisement. The very loud party in the next room put a damper on the dinner. I expected more because of all the great things I heard about the restaurant. It was good not great.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Went on our first night so were a little jaded, however food and service was great. Only thing was some loud corporate types shouting (instead of talking) - but thats not the restaurants fault.

“Good but boring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

High quality food and not even overpriced but all in all this is just another generic American up-market sandwich shop, even if the burger is topped with foie gras and the ceiling is VERY high.

The also include an automatic 20% service charge which is not really a reflection of the quality of the service.
