The Macintosh never disappoints. I went last night for the 4th or 5th time and it blew me away. If you can order the deckle and a fish entree do it. It literally arrives that day along with the veggies and that’s why it’s a...More

Great food, steak frites was amazing. Bar service was a bit snarky but fine. Our waiter seemed drunk or stoned and service was inattentive and unprofessional. Would go back for the food but if service was poor again would mark this off my list.

I don't know about for dinner. Recently I went there for brunch and 2 of our friends would not have gone if it wasn't gluten free.
