My family and I went in for a branch visit on Sunday. The menu was not extensive but it certainly was comprehensive nonetheless. My eggs Benedict was excellent and the cost of the meal for seven was reasonable. I would return - excellent service.

A group of friends met for lunch and enjoyed every dish. The atmosphere was great, although a bit crowded, the server pleasant and knowledgable. This is not an inexpensive place to go but worth every penny in my mind. Sumptuous dishes, salads.

This is a casual, cosy place with the tables fairly close together - so don't expect to have any really intimate conversations here! The menu is more upscale than a diner without being ridiculously pretentious, and the food is well prepared. The servers are good...More
