This was our second visit to the restaurant, the first was a year earlier for their Valentines special, and although the food was more than adequate at that time, it was terribly overpriced. The second visit was on a regular night, and the food was ok, but not especially memorable, and still overpriced. It is a step above a Longhorns... More

Certainly one of the best in the area. It is for a person that enjoys a wonderful meal and is willing to pay for it.

Came for a friends small get together, the drinks were great and the food was very savory. The ambiance was very nice and relaxing. Love the music too.

Very fancy place, food was good, visited this restaurant due to work. Otherwise I wouldn't have gone. Probably good for an anniversary or special event, nothing negative about this place I can think of except for price but really price was fair for a restaurant of this caliber

My flight was delayed. The rental car place was out of cars. I searched TripAdvisor for a decent place open after 9:30. There weren't many, but this place was open late. I wasn't disappointed. It's all very good. The bread that comes with the meal is fantastic. The iced tea is the best I've had in the valley. I had... More

I was running behind all day long and wanted a nice meal. I searched best restaurants near me this came up. I was very happy I went, the Bartender Rick was so attentive. Local IPA was great. The wedge salad so good. The sauteed veggies might have stolen the show. I always order chicken Marsala if its on a menu.... More

The place, the drinks (Cucumber Martini), the food and the service is the best. The steak and Lobster are worth going back for. A must try eatery!

Great place in the middle of the 17th Street bar/ nightclub scene. Parking available with back entrance to restaurant in Bicentennial side. Varied menu. Not for budget conscious customers. Great bar with TVs if single dining.

We love the atmosphere in this stunning restaurant. They have a beautiful old bar, delicious dining w/ local works of art on the walls. Our favorites are the seviche, mexican dishes, shrimp salad and soups. The tacquito starter is also a favorite as are the steaks.

Thank allisong205
