Didn't expect much from the informal decor ( library shelves) and location, but a creative and fantastic presentation was great. Loved the Cod special; others thought the Walleye and the scallops/couscous were hits. Only quibble was wrong wine and glasses brought but was corrected. Would return for sure.

The food was mediocre in general and they put ketchup on the lamb gyro. I have never seen this anywhere in any kind of restaurant. Plus the lamb was way over cooked.

Great food, nice atmosphere and well priced dishes and drinks. The only negative is insufficient parking. Overall, one of our favourite places for a nice night out.

Spent most of an evening here a couple nights ago. Had a very good martini, a bottle of good wine from the special rack, and a very good dinner as well. A party of four, we were very pleased and would recommend. I thought the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable, and made good recommends. This is not a steakhouse, or a national chain, it is the type of place you might find in a place like Seattle. Cosmopolitan, and upscale, but not overpriced. Very much recommended.

At first we were very impressed. Something sad going on here. Food is still great. Servers cheerful but over worked, so service was slow. A large party of 35 or 40 who had emailed in their order the day before, showed up. We watched the poor staff scramble to try to accommodate them because the manager had NOT given them the order & was not even at the restaurant. Of course this caused our order to be delayed as well while everyone was frantically working to help the group who had made reservations to no avail. Poor cook was over stressed. We talked to a stressed server & found out this is common. Bottom line. Better to make reservations elsewhere until they get a new manager. The food is excellent, service staff great, management seriously lacking. Very sad because we really enjoy the food & servers here. Hopefully things will be corrected soon.
