We've been coming here for 13 years, since discovering them via the Entertainment Book. They don't need to play the coupon game to lure customers anymore because we are only two of a very loyal following that's been built up over the years. They've done it by serving food that is consistent in taste and quality, in a setting that is upscale, pleasant and calming (white table linens, soft classical music, comfortable distance between tables, very clean restrooms, windows that line the dining room). Yes, it's located at the corner of a shopping center, as another reviewer noted, but the ambiance upon entering the restaurant is lovely, welcoming and always non-rushed.
The service has always been impeccable, with just the right hint of understated friendliness, the kind of demeanor you find in only the best restaurants. Allen, the owner, is so down to earth, respectful and unassuming that it was several years before I knew that he owned the place. Everyone who works there seems like the kind of person you wouldn't mind having as a friend - they're that nice, without being in the least bit intrusive.
It's so nice to always be able to count on the restroom being so clean. For me, this is very important.
The table linens are always freshly starched and spotless.
I frequently pick up a daily newspaper and take myself there for the lunch special. It's an hour of calm - a respite from chores, noise and traffic - listening to soft classical background music, while eating great food at a reasonable price in a calm setting. Sometimes I go with a friend. Another plus is that you can hear the person you are with talk, in the absence of clattering plates or jarring music.
The food is not only delicious, it is consistently delicious. You can depend on the thing you order tasting exactly as good as it was each time before.
The only problem is that, for us, it's a 50 minute round trip for take-out - but it's worth it!
Allen and/or his wife are always at the front desk with a friendly greeting, working with a pleasant staff to make the Tams experience top notch.
