Located in a wonderful historic building, this restaurant, formerly known as Saffron, offers a unique dining experience. While the ambiance and atmosphere is of bygone days, the menu is mostly American steakhouse fare. Our party of four tried a variety of dishes. The filet was excellent, but the ribeye was too fatty and had not been trimmed properly. All the food was over-salted -something the kitchen clearly needs to address. The starters were average, but the mussells starter was very poor - essentially mussells swimming in a tomato soup. That dish needs to be rethought. We were not offered cocktails or a wine list, so I don't know if they have one. The menu has wine by the glass for $6. The champagne (advertised as dry) was sweet and cheap. The house red Cabernet was actually very good value. The service was friendly and prompt - absolutely no complaints . Last, and by no means least, I sense that this restaurant has an identity crisis. The name in no way communicates the menu - if anything it sounds like a Munich beer house. The menu offerings communicate a management that doesn't know whether to go high-end or mid-market. The food quality communicates a lack of skill in the kitchen - just basic ability - and nothing is either locally sourced or 'historic' - both of which could really help this place stand out. In order for this restaurant to really make its mark it needs to make some changes to address these shortcomings. Worth a visit, but it won't get regular repeat visits until these issues are fixed.
