“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

This restaurant was ok. I found it to be crowded and a bit on the pricey side fro food that was just okay, not terrific. Service was rather slow, too.

“Good times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Ate at this location with 9 other friends. The waiter seemed kind of "put off" at the size of our group as we wanted separate checks. He was a good waiter. We ate outside as the day was very nice. We were shaded and enjoyed the outdoors. Food was great and the portions reasonable.

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I'm a single diner and once again experienced bad service. In fine dining timing is important. It was off on getting started, off when they brought the main dish out without getting the salad, and off with being pretty much ignored throughout. The baked stuffed flounder used to be baked in a little ceramic dish, now it's on the plate with overlooked veggies and no cheese topping. Dessert was a crumbly dry apple walnut cake. Used to have a sweet souce topping, but no more.

Portion control, below average staff, and short sighted profits have taken over at what once was a classy resturant.

“Tasty tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

First time to this resturant and it was wonderful. Fresh bread is to die for...we had 3 baskets...oink oink. Four of us were dining, we all ordered different entrees and no complaints. The greek salad was a great starter, then I had a parm encrusted tilapia on fettacini ...best fish ever. Everyone else had steak, different cuts, all were cooked correctly and devine. Waiter was attentive. We were there on prom night...oops...who knew, we are from out of town. So they were busy, but we still got food promptly and truly enjoyed our visit. Park at JC Penneys in mall garage, take escalator to bottom floor...signs lead to resturant. Parking is tough in this downtown area...after dark maybe not such a great idea on the street. Mall garage is well lit and they only charge $1.75 for any length of time. Cheapest city parking ever !

“Very good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had dinner here at the recommendation of hotel staff. We were very pleased with the quality of food (we had seafood) and the service. We were fortunate to have a very attentive waiter during the busy dinner hour. It is not inexpensive, but a good value.
