I've eaten eggs Benedict all over & this was definitely one of the best!! Brunch is served on the weekends & worth the trip! I also recommend the Bubbles Napa- Mango flavored. Great start to my Saturday.... service was great also. Thank you, Alice for your suggestions!

Great wine list with lots of expensive choices, and nice inexpensive choices too. I had a burger, who've was nicely done, and my wife had a pasta concoction she loved. Great service from friendly, attentive Waiters.

Went for dinner mid week and enjoyed al fresco outdoor tables. Service was great but food was just average. We had lamb shank which was not as tender as I prefer and not that flavorful. Location and service are great, the items we had for dinner were not as spectacular

We really gave the waiter the run around on the kind of wine we wanted. Pinot, Willamette valley, french style and not too expensive to boot. Wow did he come up trumps.

We ate lunch here yesterday. It was early and they were out of one item we wanted. The food was just okay and the service was good. Prices were high for what we had.

Ate here the other day with two friends. It was full so we had to eat inside which was fine, though pretty deserted. I had a shrimp Louis salad that was awful: a bit of iceberg lettuce (some of which was brown), at most two shrimp cut into bite-sized pieces so it would look like more, literally one radish slice...

The atmosphere is very New York, the steaks and fish perfectly done, the waiters very attentive. Sunday brunch a favorite.

This came highly recommended but I was not as happy with my food, the Tuna Salad. The flavors just didn't mesh for me. The service was very good and we enjoyed the covered patio as it was a bit quieter for visiting.

Thank Gypsybam
