“FINE DINING.”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

You wont be disappointed, The food is always gourmet, and the service is usually good, they get busy, and sometimes not as on top of things, but well worth the wait.

“Nice modern Italian”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

A colleague and his family took me to this very pleasant restaurant. Salads were super-fresh and very good. Both the pasta that two of us had and the fish another DC had were very good and a reasonable (not gargantuan) portion size. The kids seemed very happy with a nice-looking cheese pizza and chicken tenders that appeared house-made. Bread basket was replenished without asking. Tiramisu and molten chocolate cake disappeared in a flash but as I did not participate I cannot speak to their quality. Would definitely go back next business trip.

“Fantastic back room for a group with great food also.”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Went here for a business dinner. The service was fantastic and easily supported our special requests for the vegetarians in the group. The back room we were in had doors that blocked out the noise from the rest of the restaurant which was great for actually be able to have conversations. We had the appetizer samplers. The bruschetta was really well done and the calamari wasn't chewy like it often can be. I had the risotto special for dinner - it had chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and a cream sauce. it was just right and not so large a portion that I couldn't finish it. I had the bread pudding with vanilla gelato for dessert. The bread pudding contained bananas which was different but still very tasty. I very much enjoyed the experience and would come back again.
