The restaurant bills itself as American cuisine but the options aren't boring by any means. There's something for everyone. There's a mixture of seafood, veggie, and fried options as appetizers. The soups and salads are pretty standard fare, but the entrees offer an array of seafood, meat, and pork options. They do have steak and various chicken dishes as well. The poached lobster was heavenly, and my hubby tells me the NY strip was great.

The ambiance was cozy, with plenty of space around the tables. It is subdued enough to hold a conversation. Lighting is dim, which is lovely. Our waiter, Akeem, was very professional and got our order exactly right. The courses were appropriately spaced and we never needed to ask for anything.

Overall, excellent experience. Kudos to the staff.

This is the second time my wife and I have dined here. The service was excellent. The music was perfect and the food again was incredible. From my wife the desert queen the Panna Cotta was " One of the best I have ever had, we are coming back"!

Went for a granddaughters graduation celebration. The food is good. We had the double burgers [liked]; vegetable wrap w salad [liked], green salad w chicken [liked], caesar salad [liked], and fries. Long wait from seating till food was brought to table [THE PLACE WAS ONLY 25% OCCUPIED]. Then the salad came without the chicken [had to return for it], asked for balsamic vinegar [got vinaigrette]. Ordered dessert & coffee, liked the panacotta, what was supposed to be strawberry short cake became a tart-like affair w goat cheese. Upon complaining was offered a replacement, and then told it had changed on the menu, BUT not on the lunch one that we ordered from. We were waited on by 3 people, maybe that was part of the problem. But it doesn't matter, the place has to get it's act together. Don't go if in a hurry, or if you are looking for good service!

Our waitress was terrific and explained the Breakfast choice of the buffet or regular menu. Food arrived quickly, coffee was good. Prices were a smidgeon high but if you consider the convenience of taking the elevator to breakfast vs getting in the car and searching for a restaurant it evens it all up I think.
