We dined here for dinner on a Saturday evening. Very good menu with interesting specials. A bit pricey but good quality too. There was a 3 piece band playing as well. Not easy to find. Reservations recommended.

The martini bar is one of the best in Bloomington and has a relaxed atmosphere! I have never had a bad drink and the bartenders are friendly and informative.
