This was our 2nd visit to Rod's; went with friends (their 1st visit). We sat at a round booth in the corner of the balcony and the ambiance could not be any better. The live soloist downstairs at the bar was far enough away that it did not overpower our conversation and we could enjoy it in the background. As in our previous visit, the oysters were very fresh and clean. There's a very good selection of wines. Although I was looking forward to the prime rib, one of the specials was duck. I love duck and don't find it that often - so I ordered it. About 5 minutes later, the general manager (not the waiter) came to our table to politely explain that they had run out of duck. Not heart-broken, I easily switched to the prime rib. Just minutes later, the head chef came to me to explain that they indeed did have duck and he will prepare it for me. All the food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was outstanding and well-timed to OUR pace (we were at Rod's for over 3 hours). Toward the end of the evening, a live band (good talent; nice selections) played at the bar, which only made the evening better still. Our friends fell in love with Rod's.
