Have visited many times downstairs for the wine bar and appetizers. First time tonight upstairs for the full restaurant. Such a beautiful place, always outstanding service, always just seems like the menu is too broad for a small place. Tonight's dinner was overdone by garlic on every one of the three things on the plate (scallops, potatoes, and green beans), and a bit overpriced. Wish they would narrow the menu and do everything great. Absolutely worth the trip and will keep going back for drinks and apps. Want this lovely place to make it!

The atmosphere is unbelievable. The new owners did a phenomenal job with this place I walked in and could not believe that I was in Beloit Wisconsin.

Excellent food, beautiful decor and the staff is very attentive plus really "spiffy" looking. They have a "Chef's table available by reservation and ideal for a romantic evening.

Sorry to knock all the five star reviews, however I give it 3 only because of the interior design and decor which is excellent. The food and service was less than average. At that price point we expected more. Four small scallops and a dollop of mashed potato on a rectangular plate $30.00. Pasta carbonara to dry to eat. They apologized for the service saying much of the staff was at a church retreat. Perhaps they opened for business to soon.

what a great ladies night I had here a week ago. such a sexy classy yet cozy feel to this place!the outside of the restaurant had great parking even for motorcycles! we ordered the lobster mac and cheese with wine (downstairs at gatsby wine bar) which was amazing! then for dinner (upstairs clara bo) we had ribeye which had an amzaing topping on it (which was added) some kind of cowboy topping, it was potatoes with a melted blue cheese and mushroom fondue of some kind. cant wait to take my boyfriend back for date night! the atmosphere gets an A+ as well as the service.
