“delicious and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

this meal experience was fantastic. the food was exceptional. the bread was warm, the steaks were done per instruction and melted in your mouth, and the lobster tails with truffle risotto were sinful. we were seated in a quieter area, as per our request (dining with a senior), and our server was very attentive and personable - no attitude! only criticism is everything was awfully salty. everyone noticed it - the meat the vegetables, the potatoes, everything. not enough to put a damper on the evening, just enough for a second cocktail!

“Wonderful Flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We went there for dinner for the first time this weekend. The atmosphere was warm, trendy, and friendly. The waiter was intelligent and personable. The food was excellent. I had the Pesto crusted sea bass with wasabe mashed potatoes - and it was fabulous! The salads were excellent too. Lots of interesting choices on the menu, such that one can have an expensive or inexpensive meal. We'll definitely go back!
