A great evening in a great restaurant. Our waitress was Angela who was fantastic. She was personable, professional and dedicated to providing us with the highest quality service. The dinner started off with a basket of specialty breads and flavored butters. Our salad with the house dressing was exceptional. My wife had a filet and I had the walleye. Both... More

Ate here with friends. Was a little skeptical, because we could see empty tables, yet they made us wait 10 minutes before seating us. However the service, and food made up for the wait!! Steaks cooked just as you expect them. Fish not overdone. Appetizer was excellent and creative. Wine suggestion was spot on. Server was exceptional, and really made... More

We love this restaurant. The food is great! You can wait a very long time though. It is also very expensive so be prepared to pay for a good meal.

Party of 4 and we each ordered different menu items. All 4 were delicious (of course I think mine was best because I ordered the March Chef's Tour--the best!). We asked for Angela as our server. You'll like her too her too! I like that she pours my martini at the table and is attentive to bringing some extra pieces... More

Eaten here many times over the years and food has been very good. The servers have been attentive and friendly but not over board. Atmosphere is great.

I stopped in on my way back from Duluth. I had the French Onion Soup which was excellent. I had the tenderloin medallions which were cooked perfectly, the only thing I would suggest is that they don't overcook the mushrooms quite as much. The whipped sweet potatoes were very good. I would eat here again. The service was excellent.

We ate dinner here before a concert. There was a wait because of the concert, but there was a bar to sit in (no food tho). We were seated within the timeframe they stated to us. We had a fabulous 3 course meal. We each ordered appetizer, salad or soup and the main meal. Amazingly high end food and the... More
