We chose the Chicken Milanese and Tenderloin Chimi, both were excellent with real thought to even the accompanying vegetables. Would definitely recommend RIS for any occasion.

It's a nice restaurant, but Saturday is not a great day to go, obviously. Food was disappointing, drinks were OK but long in coming, chicken milanese was mediocre. It was a birthday celebration with folks from out of town; sorry we didn't go somewhere else.

Good food. A friendly atmosphere. I had excellent house made ravioli with a wonderful sauce. The only downside was the high price of the desserts and coffee.

French cuisine with a contemporary twist. Good salads, appetizers, fish, wine. We went for a post-graduation meal and the food and service were both excellent.

A good place in a great location to have a business dinner. Little to no ambient noise allowed for unstrained conversation. The portions were just right and nicely plated.
