“What a GREAT place !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We enjoyed a great meal here on the recommendation of our innkeepers at the Castle in the Country. They made reservations for us and we got right in at our time. When we were leaving, there were several groups of people waiting to get in. We never felt rushed to finish despite the people that were waiting.
We were warmly greeted by our waitress, Heather. She provided excellent service throughout the evening and provided some recommendations and each one that we took was EXCELLENT!!!
We started with drinks, Margarita and "Farmer's Fiz" which were excellent. Our appetizers, the onion dish and pierogis--both absolutely delicious !!! Our entrees, the hanger steaks, were probably the best steaks we've had in quite some time. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. The biggest surprise was the fried brussel sprouts, which were cooked and then friend in balsalmic vinegar. We were both a bit apprehensive, but were not disappointed. They were delicious!! If I could reproduce those, I would have them regularly !!!
My husband enjoyed a Tahitian shake, which was delicious (he shared, yea!).
The place is very nicely decorated. Don't let the storefront location fool or dissuade you from trying this excellent restaurant!!!!

“I'd go again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We enjoyed a nice meal, hearty portions, fairly priced. Service was fine and attentive but those who are in a rush-rush might get annoyed...go when you have time to relax, chat and appreciate the food.

“Cocktails and flowers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

The atmosphere of SotE is romantic and laid back. We had fresh tulips in a vase on our table despite the winter season. Their cocktails are amazing and my husband said his steak was the best he has ever had. A little pricey but the food and drinks were worth it and we decided it was one night we could splurge.
