This is a great restaurant! The food and service were topnotch.

I had the prime rib special and my bf had the braised ribs. We both loved our entrees. The prime rib with the au jus sauce was a perfect compliment to each other; not too salty or bland. For dessert, we had the chocolate cake and mocha chip ice cream. They too were wonderful.

Our waiter was really attentive without being obnoxious. The restaurant was packed, but we still received excellent service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated; plenty of booth seating.

We will definitely be dining here again.

Celebrated daughter's 12th birthday there. Ian, our waiter was awesome, never trying to rush anything and letting the evening happen. Made our daughter feel like a superstar and the center of attention, which I liked. What can you say about a $30, three course prime rib dinner except "Bring it on". Fantastic meal, looking forward to the return visit.

An overall feel-good kind of place. The food is amazing, the service is incredible, and the ambiance is comfortable and elegant at the same time. A true gem.

I just selected 3's for all criteria except service since I never got served.

I entered and was seated promptly at 12:15pm.

A waitress came over immediately to introduce herself and take my drink order. I ordered iced tea. Then I sat there for 15 minutes watching her serve other tables in my area and never bring my iced tea or make eye contact with me.

I went up and got my parking ticket validated and walked out.

It was about a three minute walk back to my car and after about a minute an a half I heard someone call to me from behind.

It was the manager, quite winded, who had run the block and a half to catch up with me. He offered his apologies and gave me a gift card.

I thanked him and drove across the street to Il Fornaio.

I'll go back, but not anytime soon.
