“Delish”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Pretzel bread is to die for. Very comfortable atmosphere and the outside eating area has heat warmers in the tile floor. So very nice.

“Beautiful dining”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We came to celebrate my daughter birthday, and all enjoyed a very lovely lunch.. Staff was pleasant but somewhat slow, leaving long periods of time between courses. Large group at next table with small screaming children took away a lot of the ambience. Can't blame the restaurant but felt like they could have brought their check a little faster! Property is lovely, fabulous views. Portions were very generous, food was tasty, not outstanding..

“Delightful dining with quality service”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We enjoyed attentive, if leisurely, highly professional service and delicious cuisine with a party of 7. Cocktails were creative, the wine list is excellent and the open kitchen is attractive. Dishes were well presented and flavorful; we had salmon and halibut. Interior is Tuscan-Italian with very spacious, high ceilings, large booths, attractive lighting and decor. A feeling of luxury. Highly recommended.

“Dinner for a Group”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We were traveling with a large group and we had this one meal on site that preceded by a cocktail party with h'or d'oeuvres. Plenty of food was passed and when time for the sit down dinner, I was already full so to me the food was nice but not outstanding. As it was all prepared for the group that is understandable.
