Mixed reactions. We keep kosher and are from a town that only recently got its first kosher flashic restaurant. Having a flashic restaurant with an extensive menu was a treat beyond compare, especially for my wife who follows kashrut more strictly than I do. The...food, however, was a bit uneven and a bit expensive. Among the items we had, the brisket sliders were excellent. I could have made a full meal of them. While my wife’s steak was very good, my sirloin was a bit tough….and is sirloin kosher!?More

Loved the food and service. We split a cauliflower salad. My husband had a bourbon steak that was not only very tender, but extremely delicious. I had sea bass in parchment paper (advice of waiter) on a medley of veggies and it was probably the...best version of this dish I ever tasted.More

A treat for your taste buds, from the moment you enter this establishment you are in for a treat. The ambiance is that of a world class restaurant. The staff attentive, well-mannered and friendly, the menu so many choices were too were to start. The...food -first presentation beautiful like a gorgeous rose. Second – portion size fit for a King.

Full dinner and separate light (bar) menus available. Enjoyed their wings and then each of us had a burger variety from the light menu. Service was prompt and accurate. Candle with dessert for our birthday and graduation celebrations.

Food and service is very good. Very expensive. I had a $45 burger that was very tasty. Honestly though, I could get a tasty burger with everything in the bun that I like and cooked to my desire for a third of the price. Nice...to go to to blow money once but wouldn't go back anytime soon cause of price unless someone else is treating :)More

Stopped here while charging my Tesla. I didn’t get the item I ordered and there wasn’t much effort to make it right. Expensive for the value.

The french fries were not fresh and I had the...sensatio they were rewarmed in the microwave.I will not go there again.More

We stopped in for lunch thinking it was an Italian restaurant and were pleased to find it was an upscale place to eat. It wasn't terribly crowded on a Monday, but our server, Andrew, was extremely attentive and helpful. He made several recommendations and our...service was excellent. The beef brisket sandwich was delicious and filling, as was the pastrami burger. The churros and ice cream for dessert were just the taste of something sweet we needed at the end of the meal. It's a great place for a leisurely lunch or a business lunch.More

The food and service are excellent. I really should have brought a crew of friends to help me eat the bistro burger -- it is HUGE! Remodeling is almost complete. The remaining projects are putting in a new floor and replacing the chairs. Personally I...find the renovation somber rather than tranquil (which is what I think they were going for), but I come for the food, not the ambiance. The fireplace is a lovely addition. plenty of parkingMore
