My daughter and I have gone out to lunch couple of times since the kids went back to school. This was the best place yet. Small intimate and handy in a suburban neighborhood, almost drove past it. Good lunch selection for someone who was really hungry and someone who was not. The tortilla soup was outstanding.

I made reservations here for two for NYE. Usually when you book for a holiday set menu, you get screwed with cold food or small portions. Not here, it was 5 courses and each one was better than the last. All the food was amazing and so were the craft cocktails and wine pairings with each course. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for a great meal and romantic atmosphere.

This place was "alive", packed and with live music, but still no wait time to be seated. We went for a light dinner and chose form the appetizer menu and a draft beer. Excellent.

I would love to give this place more than three stars. The service has always been topnotch. Outside dining is peaceful, despite the sound of traffic on Dealer. There is a zen-like feel to the outside dining room. The interior, while very trendy and upscale, is just too crowded and noisy. The food is adventurous. The seasonings sound great on the menu, but the execution all three times that
I have gone, fell short of what
I had imagined. The place is always full so it must appeal to many people, just not to me. For instance, the Caesar salad is not the traditional lemony garlic with Parmesan. It is a chopped salad, huge portion to be sure, but it is not Caesar. The steak on two visits was a little bland, less-than-tender, and had a taste of being pan-seared rather than grilled. The sides are skimpy for the price, which would be okay if the taste were special. It's okay to try this place. I just think the flavors fall short of the menu descriptions. Joshua is a great server!

The service was great. Drinks were OK - had a Fruit Mojito. The Chorizo and Shrimp appetizer was excellent. The shredded crab appetizer was not so hot - would have been better with lump crab. Did not like the French Onion Soup - carmelized onions did not work - made it sweet and the cheese while plentiful (on request) was tasteless.
