“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We were the only guests at 6:00 pm and they tried to keep us all night. The waiter refused to approach the table if anyone was talking. Hello - we could have starved. When he finally took our order, everything was great. I appreciated the fact the sides were includes in the price until I saw the tablespoon of potatoes they were providing. Still, everything tasted great. This is a high-dollar, special-occassion kind of place. Don't go if you are worried about the monthly eating out budget. Wine list is very limited with only a few selections under $50.
