Several of my friends love this restaurant. I have been a number of times, always with the same impression. The service is great and the staff are very friendly. The restaurant has a charming old feel to it. However it is noisy in the inside dining rooms (there is an outdoor seating area that is better in the warm months). The food descriptions sound good, but it just doesn't quite measure up, especially considering the fact that it is quite pricey (around $50 a person, not including tip). Sure, the food is good enough, but it has never risen to the level of excellent in my opinion.
I ate there tonight with a group of friends (and to be fair, the restaurant is the favorite of one of my friends). My steak had a "coffee glaze" on it. The first few bites were tasty, but the glaze did not wear well on my palate, leaving a weird smoky aftertaste. The side dish of some sort of home fry potato had a stale recooked flavor. The broccoli was so over-cooked that I could not eat it. My white bean and kale starter soup however was quite good. The waiter was attentive and pleasant. However, the upstairs dining room was too hot and the floor shook each time a waiter hurried by (both of which may have been a function of where I was seated next to the door to the kitchen). I will go here when someone else suggests it, but I doubt that I would be the moving force to eat here. Too expensive for the rather average quality of the food.
