My family and I went for a dinner one night. We usually shy away from expensive restraunts but decided to treat ourselves. The service was great and I loved the wine that was picked out for me. My mother and I both shared the goat chesse salad and still rave about it today. My only problem was some of the dishes were overcooked( the duck) but my lamb was perfect, just thought the polenta cake underneath was way to big and thick. Not everyone thought it was a dinner worth over $200.

We were traveling through the Springfield area and went to this restaurant expecting a special dinner. It was very disappointing. The steak was undercooked to my specifications and not a quality selection of meat, the potatoes and vegetables were undercooked and very bland. The service was also much to be desired. We waiting for an hour before getting our dinner and there was no explanation from the waiter. I would not recommend this restaurant. Poor quality for the price.

It wasn't a busy night for our visit so it was a quiet atmosphere. The food was delicious and the waiter, while a bit nervous or new to his job, was attentive and did just fine. Each of us enjoyed our entrees, a bottle of wine, and had a nice evening.

Stopped in for lunch after visiting Lincon's museum. We were impressed with how great the salmon was and they even shared the recipe. We may go back again for dinner.
