The decor and the prices give the appearance of a nice restaurant. I was really impressed with the food. The waitress was also attentive. My only complaint is that we were seated right next to the kitchen and all I could hear was the squeaky kitchen door opening and closing. It really ruined what could have been a great experience...

We have been here 4 times. Last time I had lamb chops which were cooked and seasoned just the way I like them. We were a group of 6 and everyone cleaned their plates.

We were a party of 8 with a 7PM reservation on Saturday night. Waitress was terrible. Slow taking order, slow bringing order, never refilled our water glasses. We finally had to ask for a new waitress.

Recently visited this restaurant, ordered the swordfish and it was the best I have had in quite some time. We had been visiting with friends of ours so the conversation was flowing and the waitress couldn't be more accommodating with waiting for us to be ready. She was very attentive, water glass was always full and came back and forth... More

I took my wife out for our 32nd anniversary and the whole experience was terrible. We both started off with the French onion soup, which was ok. I ordered the Prime rib with French fries and a salad. Got my meal before the salad. Prime rib was awful. Fries were really good, and I couldn't enjoy my salad, as I... More

Was there the other night with some of my friends from work. The food was delicious, but our waitress Stacey was horrid. Whenever you asked for something, she gave you such an abrupt answer while she was walking away. She was VERY RUDE and UN professional. At the end of the night, she apologized for being so rushed, as she... More

Sat at bar on a Thursday eve. Not too many people in restaurant or in the bar. Place seemed pretty empty. Seemed odd. Passed friends who had been at bar and eaten earlier, they were not impressed. Food was cold.. We had the middle eastern sampler. Added baked kibbee and grapeleaves. The grapeleaves were a bit mushy. Another order escargot.... More

We've been eating here for years, and can't say enough good things about the place. They've got the best prime rib, best french fries, and of course, the best mid-east platter around. Double thumbs up!
