We have been to this restaurant about 15 times. Each meal was wonderful. They have a great menu, but we seldom are able to pass up the incredible beef tenderloin dinner! We have had wonderful duck, fish dishes - including scallops. (Watch for "Groupon" or Local Flavor coupons, which make this an even better deal.) The dinners come with a... More

Went here for a birthday. We started with appetizers; guacamole and bruchetta. The bruchetta was very good. There were 4 of us and we eat got something different. Decent portions. I got the bacon wrapped meatloaf which was very good. Someone else got pasta, one got the surf and turf and another the pork chops. We all liked our food.... More

Husband and I went for dinner. The soup was good but nothing super special. However everything else was superb. I had the yellowfin tuna steak - - one of the best pieces of fish and rice I've ever had. Husband enjoyed his butternut ravioli. Tiramisu was great, not traditional... More of a cake. Service was wonderful. I would like to... More

I like to be pampered when I go out to eat and this place does just that. The food is fantastic and the service is wonderful. You truly get what you pay for. Really exceptional.

I had seen this restaurant in Groupon and thought it sounded like a neat place to try out. Our waitress was great but our food, not so much. My husband ordered a medium well filet. It came more like medium rare. I ordered the brandy mushroom chicken. It was good but nothing special. We were seated on the first floor.... More

We went on a Groupon coupon, and it was the first time we had really ever tried the place. It is an old an somewhat unassuming house-sized place near downtown West Bend. We were warmly greeted and seated almost immediately, despite the fact that we were fairly early for our reservation. Our server was very nice, and professional. I had... More
