I enjoyed this restaurant so much that I went back for dinner the next night. The first night I ate duck and the mussel chowder. The next night I ate escargots and filet. All the meals were excellent. I also enjoyed the fresh sourdough bread.

We ate at the bar and had so much fun! Happy Hour 5 to 7 with great offerings! Beautiful wood bar, intimate dining upstairs.

We were going to see a play at the Civic Center theater and this restaurant is very close by, six of us had an excellent meal, I highly recommend you have reservations as it was packed by the time we left, very nice bar, the service was excellent as was the food. Two problems, they charge $1.50 for bread per person and bring it to the table without asking and for a party of 6 they automatically added a 20% gratuity and did not mention that when bringing the bill.

This place has been around for decades what a great following serving classic dishes. Filet mignon and mussel bisque are must haves when visiting. Service is friendly and remind me of how thing used to be done - RIGHT!. If you are looking for a spot to have a meal with none of the pretense - this is your spot!

We were going to The Rep Friday night and chanced by Dobson's. The bar is usually crowded (for good reason), but we spotted empty table on sidewalk patio. Happy hour till 7 pm. Our foodserver, Areceli, was delightful and provided excellent food and wine suggestions. We had so much fun, we barely make it to the 8 pm show!
