Had clients out for lunch this past week and it was an excellent choice. Was a quieter med upscale with linen tablecloths and napkins. Perfect for a conversation over lunch. The menu had many excellent choices but we all chose the Chefs Special Macadamia & Black Pepper encrusted Tuna, seared and served med rare. The Tuna was fresh and had a great flavor; the accompanying vegetables were a perfect complement to the tuna. Highly recommend if you’re in Springfield for Lunch. I hear the dinner is as good, just not tried it yet.

The food is consistently great. We have been here many times for the past few years and have never had anything that wasn't wonderful. The flash fried spinach is something everyone should try.

Decor was great; friendly staff. Unique appetizer: deep fried spinach. Sort of like eating paper with parmesan cheese. Ordered the half size of the Chilean Sea Bass. Had to take a second look to find the half portion on the plate. For the high price of the half, it wasn't worth it. It was gone in 3 bites. The vegetable was one stalk of broccoli and two skinny carrots. Needless to say, we all got a dessert because the meals didn't fill anyone up at the table. Unless you have money to burn, find another place where you get great food with reasonable prices. I wouldn't return nor would I recommend this to anyone else.

Went with a group from work. The food tasted wonderful but the portions were like most "gourmet' places...too small. Prices however weren't. Nice staff, nice ambience, great tasting food...just not my personal thing. Would be good for a business lunch, though.
