“A really fine restaurant in a good foodie town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was a great place to entertain out-of-town visitors, but only for special occasions, as the prices are somewhat prohibitive. The steaks, seafood, specials and appetizers were superb, the bar drinks were exceptional and the wine list extensive. Definitely a place to take someone special on a special occasion!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

This place is amazing. From the decor, to the service to the food. Top to bottom a great place. This restaurant could go toe to toe with the great restaurants in NYC. The absolute best Duck that I have ever had!

“A lovely experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Such a nice place but it is pricey. Steak was well seasoned but med rare was way too rare. Onion soup, bread, arugula salad, etc were all excellent. Stick to the soup, salad, tapas for a cheaper but really good alternative to steak.

“Not what i was expecting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We brought our daughter up to start school at SUCO. We had been told to stop in by another family where we live in NJ. The steaks were not worth the money, the food was inconsistant (Myself and my wife both ordered the fillet), what came out were two completely different sized steaks with different portion sizes of everything else. The service was ok, the drinks list was... ok. I had been told once i sat that there was a cocktail menu... Not cocktails believe me. Ive read all the reviews on here and i was very much expecting to be blown away by this place... I was not impressed. Just Blaaa, We also tried a few other restaurants in town, with much better value for money and better service. To the short guy with a grey beard, we didnt need you standing talking to us for 45 minutes while we tried to eat our meal. To the blonde snappy woman on the floor, sorry we didnt have a reservation, but you didnt need to scold us like children for not having one. Im disappointed, i really wanted this place to be good, its just not.

“A local favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

As always, the service, food and drinks were excellent! Our favorite server Annie always goes above and beyond to make us happy and even remembered our order! Love that the owners always check in during dinner and certainly have pride in this business. Steaks are excellent! Will definitely be visiting again soon.
