The Caesar made tableside was outstanding. The warm bread delicious. We had the hamburger which is not a traditional hamburger it was fantastic. The lobster fettuccine was unbelievable. We will be back. I highly recommend.

We loved everything about the meal. The Cesar salad was amazing. My partners steak was awesome. And I had onion soup and steamed mussels and clams. For desert we shared a chocolate cake. The service was also excellent.

I've loved the table side caesar salad and am willing to pay the very steep $20 per person for it because it is just so good. But to my real surprise, the onion soup and the french fries are each the best that I've ever...More

We stayed down the street and walked by the place. We definitely wanted some Colorado lamb. We were not disappointed. The restaurant food, service , and ambiance were outstanding and we are well traveled and considered foodies. The saddle cut of the lamb was perfect...More
