After dinner we shared a delicious tiramisu dessert which had extra fruit... More

Put a very good taste in our mouths after a fairly bad taste from wandering the endless maze that is Foxwoods. I had a chicken dish with a healthy portion of fresh mozzarella and tomatoes on top, while my wife had linguine. Both were excellent as was a salad we shared as an appetizer. There were plenty of menu choices,the... More

Excellent mid to upper restaurant more to the higher side. Great wine list with knowledgeable staff about the wines and entries and what to pair with each. Food was excellent.

Several weeks ago I made a 5:30 reservation. I spent a significant amount of time checking on location in regards to the show we were going to. When we arrived they said they didn't have our reservation. I realize there could have been a miscommunication concerning the date but that didn't help with finding a sit down restaurant on a...

We've been here before and have enjoyed it - we didn't expect the poor service we received this past weekend. We had a reservation, were seated right away, but the waiter serving our area ignored us for a long time (20 minutes?) while giving attention to tables around us. Took him a long time to take our order, then a... More
