We made reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes (I guess that's better than the 1 hour wait ). Th only downfall is there is no where to wait. The bar is already 3 people deep all around. Once we got seated it was all forgotten. The food is delicious. I had the Lamb Chops, they were cooked perfectly.... More

We live very close and so sometimes just order a pizza to go, special occasions we dine in. Their filet is the ultimate best but quite pricey. You do get what you pay for however. Small assorted bread basket, usually just a piece per diner in the party, sides are usually generous and wine list is awesome. We belong to... More

We went here with our very good friends; no kids! The ladies indulged in a few glasses of sangria and said it was very good. The guys had a few beers...can't goof those up:) For dinner the ladies ordered chicken, I know my wife's dish was over the portabella ravioli...both said their dishes were very good. The guys both ordered... More

Once again our dining experience started with the famous Calamari. So tender and flavorful. I've never had anything like it. Hubby had the duck, which he really likes and I had the Salmon this time. It was on a cedar plank, and the taste was excellent. Our server was Rob (or Robbie) and we enjoyed his company. We went on... More

It changes from time to time and season to season, but the dinners are always excellent. We all had something different and all like our selection. Oh and don't forget to ask for the... More

How have I missed this restaurant after years of coming to this part of Michigan? The signature of the chef is on everything from the unusual dipping oil for the bread (with pesto) to the delicious seared scallops in lobster sauce. Waitress had too many tables so service was not as good as the meal...didn't get coleslaw or the sauce... More

Having lived in LA and San Diego, I've seen my share of trendy restaurants; it would have been nice if one of these could actually exist in Macomb County MI, but this is an epic fail. It seems someone had great ideas making this overpriced and pretentious restaurant kid friendly, but again epic fail; the promised make your own pizza... More
