To start, we enjoyed and highly recommend the Carpaccio with watercress, red wine grained mustard, citrus oil, and toast, as well as the BLT salad of iceberg, tomato, blue cheese, applewood lardons, and blue cheese dressing. My blue cheese filet mignon was perfectly medium rare...More

I've eaten here over a dozen times - hugely disappointing. This is not a low cost restaurant. Service was ok. Food mediocre. Advised server we were pretty hungry in arrival as we had missed lunch. Asked to select starters - he did and it arrived...More

Upon entering you are hit with the long bar full of taps. Many of the beers are local craft beers, but also from all over as well as mainstream one. I was happy to try two craft IPAs that were excellent. The food menu also...More

Had dinner there. Menu was great, lot of seafood. I tried the tuna tartare, and was very good, and the Salmon pasta, and do not regret my choice. I would have tried some there desert, but was too full.

A full menu of top of the line foods. Had the Scallops and they were excellent. Four large scallops cooked to perfection. They do charge a $20 corkage fee but waved it upon seeing ours was a screw top even though an expensive bottle. Also,...More

I rarely review my home town spots. But this place keeps me coming back. The filet mignon is to die for, they also make a great martini.
