“The waitress, Cheryl, was very helpful but the steaks could have been better.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is a very busy restaurant and you should make a reservation like we did. We all ordered filet mignon as steak was supposed to be its specialty. I have had filet mignon many times and I think this was a lower grade as it had muscle in it. I made the mistake of ordering it medium rare and parts of it ended up being raw. I sent it back and they put more seasoning on it which was too much for me. My husband's filet was cooked well but he said it was a little tough.

Cheryl is a very good waitress and the wine she suggested was very good but I should have ordered one of the fish specials she described.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Food and cocktails were amazing! Our server was a little weird, but oh well. :) This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We looked up the reviews and saw it was more of a fine dining restaurant so we dressed as such. We were not let down. Very classy, nice restaurant. Again, food and cocktails were delicious!
