“Not the best, not the worst”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

5 of us ate here and all had a mixed experience. The Asain salad was amazing, the chips were cold and we were charged for to many items. However they were more than apologetic and rectified these straight away.

“Upscale comfort food & restaurant”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Made reservations months in advance after a recommendation from a friend. We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation and were seated immediately.
The restaurants ambiance is upbeat and trendy. The tables are close together, but they are cleaver and have the tables side by side, but if you sit horizontal, the table beside you sits vertical, so its nice to feel you still have privacy from your neighboring table.

The menu is large, with many delicious sounding choices.
Our waitress, who was fantastic, recommended the Steak Frites. I was very very pleased with the entree. My steak was cooked exactly to my liking, very juicy and delicious.

Since they are famous for their desserts, we wanted to try out a Sundae. We didn't have much room left after our entrees and our waitress told us they can do a 1 scoop sundae of any of the 3 scoop sundaes on the menu. (The menu doesn't say they do this, so if you want a smaller version, just ask.. And its also 1/3 of the price!)

Also, the drink menu is extensive- my recommendations- The Blow Pop and RootBeer Float!

“Big breakfast”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Portio s were huge. We had omlettes and they were so big we could have shared. The pancakes are enourmous and very good. Sit outside and enjoy the view, right on the strip.

We got the crepe and the flourless chocolate cake. It was okay, not fantastic. Coffee was good. Location was good, we were seated outside. I have had better desserts than this though.

We did see some people order desserts and drinks with smoke and pretty colors. Maybe those are good, maybe will try that next time.

“Amazing Decor and Cute Ambiance-Definite Food Coma to Follow”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I ended up here with 20 girls for a Bachelorette Brunch. We had a set menu of all the comfort food anyone could ever ask for...spaghetti, mac and cheese bites, bbq chicken pizza, chicken and waffles...and of course, some goblets and deliciously rich martinis. The ambiance was super cute and fun...the food was heavy and we were pretty much in a food coma, following all that sugar and carbs. Great place to visit at least once :)
