I wasn't wowed nor was I underwhelmed, it was just average. Good atmosphere and beautiful restaurant and the location is good. Parking was a bit hard to find.

“They got rid of the better beers from local companies.”

No more Utica Club or Saranac the food is alright kind of pricey. The staff is excellent but I'd rather support local companies

“Lorainne the worst”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Our waitress was as bad as the food!! lorainne while serving us seemed to have a terrible attitude due to it being near the end of her shift. She didn't wait on us like we were welcome customers. She was very rude and unpleasant to us, we felt like we were being shoved out the door throughout the entire meal. Mc Donald's treats their customers better than we were treated. Food was nasty and seriously overpriced.

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We loved the French Onion Soup--so few places fix it to perfection like this restaurant. We disliked that the server made a suggestion regarding our order & then charged us double. However, the manager quickly rectified the situation & made an adjustment on our bill, with a very humble apology. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Mixed feelings and experiences”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Went for lunch. Waited 25 min until manager came to table to apologize and order us drinks. Waited ANOTHER 10 min for her and when she never came back we left and they didn't care one bit.
On the flip side, my parents went that night for dinner and my dad said it was the best burger he ever had... But had to wait a very long time. So if you dont care about good service and fast service try it out... We've been there several times before and it always seems to be slow... But food is good
