We went to the Great Escape last evening around 5, and we truly don't understand what all the bad review are about. We had a gift certificate, so it was a little cheaper for us, but we would both go back in a heartbeat.
I plan to go back the next time for lunch, just to try out that menu next.
We had a wonderful waiter, a young Brazilian man, and the food was wonderful. I had the Black Angus steak tips and my husband had the Pasta Primavera. We shared a house salad before the meal, and it was well big enough for the 2 of us.
My husband asked for a substitute for the Balsamic Vinegarette dressing, and the young man very cordially offered him italian, which was fine for both of us (he is allergic to balsamic).
The tips were cooked just as I asked for (extremely rare) and the meal was huge, we took home doggie bags.
I would recommend this place to anyone. I can see that, due to the brick walls, and stone floors, that with a large crowd it could get very noisy in there, but last night we were one of only 3 couples, so it was perfect.
