“Good service and atmosphere, less than mediocre food at a high price”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

This used to be a good restaurant.
For me , it is all about the food and it was very disappointing.
The char on the meat was extreme although it was cooked properly inside, the flavors of the salad dressings were ...missing ( a slight hint of vinegar), one soup was seemingly unseasoned with an extreme char on the cheese on top, another soup was fairly well-seasoned but pureed until the texture was slimy, bread was good and at the proper temperature, side vegetables were very undercooked- I like them bright with flavor, but when you try to cut a carrot with a sharp knife and it flies across the plate because the blade can achieve no purchase, it needed a little more time.
Presentation was.... interesting. For example, one of us ordered a baked potato and it was served with a large fried potato wedge impaled in the center. This has to be a tax write-off venture!!!

Reviewed February 5, 2012

Whom ever the new owners are, everything went downhill, not the same quality of food.

“Just average place to eat..”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

I always heard good things about this place, and most people I knew they said this place was good, so I decided to go and I will be honest, I was not impress, this place is very plain, and I did notice something, people like it cuz most people that goes know each other, so it's more like eating among friends, of course I was an outcast there, but for people who is planning to go, if you like average food like red lobster or olive garden, then yes this place is for you. If you like new items, better taste in foods and something different, don't go here.
