This is a beautiful place to have supper, but it is really overpriced for what you get. We had the mosquito bites and they were tiny. The fried mozzarella was amazing, but not much for four adults to share. My wife had the asiago encrusted chicken, but it was spicy she had a hard time eating it. Another person at our table had the rotisserie chicken and it was nothing that you couldn't get at Sam's Club for a fraction of the price. Another in our party had a Caesar salad, again, nothing special. I had the grilled pork chop and it was probably the best pork chop that I've ever had in my life. They really need to play this up on their menu because it was amazing.

We made a reservation for a Wednesday evening and I suggest you do the same regardless of the night. NOW - Yes, you've read it before but Gus WAS very nice and attentive. There were six in our party and we were all pleased with the food. That ranges from the Whiskey Honey Chop to the Parmesean Crusted Tilapia (the special) We also had appetizers which were great, especially the mosquito bites and crab cakes. The restaurant was busy but not overly loud. We simply had a very nice meal in a.very nice setting. Add in the service and it comes out Terrific.

Sadly, their unexceptionally bland salad reduced an otherwise delightful experience. Our disappointing nondescript salads were reconciled by flavorful igarlic mashed potatoes and al dente sautéed squash' were as tantalizing and cooked to perfection as their filet minion rosemary demi glazed lamb chops.We were also impressed by their friendly and caring servers within their stately spacious dining area.

We went here for the second time after having a pleasant lunch celebration a couple weeks earlier. Thus time to celebrate my step son and my bitthdays which were two weeks apart. Server got meat temperatures wrong and delivered medium rare instead of medium well to my wife and son. I had to go and find her as she did not check back after delivery of food. She took care of it after I found her. We went at about 7:15 PM. Server disappeared after laying down paid check without a check booklet holder. The prime rib was great once we got it how we wanted; the medium well lamb was blood red at the bone. We got complimentary birthday desserts. As a former server in high end restaurants I was aware of the service. It's a hard job and difficult sometimes not to make assumptions about guests based on appearance and bad tipping experiences. I think we are good guests and not too demanding. I think the server gave up on us. Couldn't find her to thank her when we left. Mixed emotions: great food! Great lunch service! Dinner service does not justify cost or my usual 20% for goid service...wife says "3.5" stars" 🙄

We went to this restaurant on New Years Eve as 2 couples. We had a reservation, which was honored and timely. Service was excellent. Food was delicious! We all ordered different dinners and all were really tasty and fairly priced. A bonus for wine drinkers is that you can bring in your own bottle of wine for a $15 corking fee, so if you like nice wine, that is awesome! We knew we would be back. Last weekend we were there a mom/dad and 3 grown young adult children. We had an early reservation due to later plans in evening. Again, reservations timely, food excellent and because we were there for happy hour....they have wonderful appetizers at $6 versus the normal $12 to $13 and reduced drink prices. I think happy hour is 3-6 M-F. Wait staff was a little below par on this visit, but still a great experience. We will be back. We live over 2 hours away and like to try different places, but our experience was so great on New Year's Eve that we returned. We recommend it.

Went here for a birthday dinner. Ambiance was good in the restaurant. Prices are a little high but for a nice evening out it was fine. The food was average. I got the linguine pomorodo and tasted more like spaghetti to me. The service from our server Gus was great and he was personable! They also gave my friend a free birthday dessert which was nice! Overall, it was good but not fantastic.

Every bite of the lamb chops was worth the price. They took our reservation for 12 and the service was good too.
