“"Excellent Latin Band"”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Beautiful Ambiance, Nice staff, and good food. Was recently there on a Wednesday night and simply loved the Latin band who played many of my favorite Gypsy King music.

Can't wait to go back.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Loved the ambiance, cozy fireplace, book-lined walls. Felt like I was in a friend's home! Dinner was delicious, waiter knew how to help choose the best wine for the meal. Chef sent over homemade apple cider, perfect to warm us up on a snowy night. The salmon was delicious. Breakfast was also delicious. Appreciated their healthy menu!

“Expensive and doesn't deliver”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

I did the prix fixe "valentine's Day" menu and wine pairing wasn't wowed for the price of $100. It was snowing so I ate in the hotel instead of out. The water on the table was pre-poured and warm (had to ask for a fresh glass of warm water). The first course salad was limp and had too much dressing. The second course lamb was overcooked and dry. I had to ask my waiter (no name tag so I couldn't call him anything) to slow the service down (couldn't eat and drink that fast!). I had no fork for the second course and sat there for 5 minutes while my lamb got cold waiting for him to notice me. The scallops third course was excellent. But overall, it cost me $135 with tip and I wasn't terribly impressed with the food or service. will likely NEVER come back.

“Cozy and Delicious”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Took some friends that were in from out of town and everything was exceptional. Excellent food, good service and a wonderful cozy setting. We especially enjoyed the special salmon belly tartar appetizer and pork belly. The main courses were all cooked perfectly and had great flavor. The Steak was exceptional. There was also live music which we really enjoyed.
