“Great New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We went during the New Year's Eve event. It was a pre-fix menu for the night (3 course dinner with choices). My son got the brie which was absoutely delicious. My husband and myself got the oysters rockerfeller and scallops. This appetizer was too spicy for me and had to give it to my son. As for the entrees, they were great. My son and I got the lamb shanks. They were huge and delicious. My husband got the filet mignon. He said it was very tender. For the desserts, I got the chocolate mouse and they got the bread pudding. All desserts were great. The artist was not performing on New Year's Eve, but the musician was. He made the evening nice. They did a countdown at Midnight for the ones who stayed (about 1/2 did). The food was outstanding and would recommend this place based upon this. The waiter helped in selections for my son and did not steer him wrong.

“Very Nice Place to go for a special evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

My wife and I celebrated our 18th anniversary here and really enjoyed it. Lots of art which was very nice to look at. They have music on Friday and Saturday night. The food was very good. Ii had the lamb and my wife had the sample platter which included a petite fillet which was OUTSTANDING. If you go dont look at the menu just order the Fillet and you will be very happy.

“Overpriced for what you get.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This place is quirky at best. The story about the owners is interesting and good, but I just don't think the food lives up to the hype. Service is usually attentive, but thought the wine list was on the thin side and had too many unheard of wines on it. I had the grouper special and found it to be overcooked and dry. It is on the expensive side so I had much higher expectations for the food.

“Great atmosphere and excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

The atmosphere is very romantic and it was fun to watch the artist paint while we ate. The escargot was delicious as well as the crab soup. For dinner we had the duck and lamb, also excellent. I almost forgot to mention the amazing amaretto & caramel flan! Perfect place to eat for an anniversary dinner or date night.
