We bought the $55 deal from travel zoo and it was worth it. We were seated by the fireplace which was very comfortable. Had the asparagus firecrackers, spring rolls (both good) grilled Caesar, insalat with blueberry vinegrette and pistachios (excellent), chicken pesto primavera and butternut squash agnolotti (good, very creamy) and Reese cheesecake and creme brûlée for dessert (creme brûlée was the best I'd ever had!). The drinks menu looks great-I had the vanilla chai-tini which was frothy and delicious. Friendly staff who are very attentive.

An excellently dinner all around! We purchased a coupon, and went simply for a night out with friends. We were pleasantly surprised, the food was delicious, the best caprese salad we have ever had, and a very different twist on a caesar salad. The portions were plentiful and the food was fresh and tasty. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a restaurant meal that was not made by a "corporation" We will go back, no coupon, it was that good.

Bought a voucher for 4 of us to use for appetizers (had the coconut shrimp-not like you'd expect it and lettuce wraps) and 4 entrees. All of us loved our choices, from surf and turf, salmon, steak and truffle oil Mac and cheese and chicken with blackberry and risotto. Very flavorful and good portions. All meat was cooked well. The surf and turf a bit overpriced for what you get. Drinks were pretty good to. Nice to find a place close to home with a downtown feel. Only disappointment was being charged tax on max total of bill and not what we actually used (tax on $188 value was $24.44 vs $19 for what we ordered, never had that happen on a deal). Will probably be back!!

We purchased a dinner for 2 on Travel Zoo. So that is what brought us to this restaurant. we had salads and a taco appetizer to start. All were very good and much enjoyed.

My wife had a blackberry chicken as a main and I had surf and turf. The chicken was excellent. The surf and turf basically sucked. Steak was ordered medium rare and came out close to well done. The cut of meat was poor to begin with. The shrimp were extremely small also vs being called "tiger shrimp" on the menu.

The manager attended our table and was apologetic. She tried to "make it right". As we were using a travel zoo coupon she couldn't really credit our bill for the steak. So we were given a couple deserts to take home. Nice gesture I must say.

Over all I can say it was just an average experience. Our bill would have been about $150 which was far too high for the quality of steak and shrimp served. With the coupon cost our total cost was about $100.

Side note, we were charged tax on the entire bill including what the coupon covered. Not right at all. Nickel and diming in my opinion. So our bill was about $25 above what the coupon covered but then they charged us another $20 or so in taxes. Seemed cheesy to me.

Will we go back? Maybe....
