We had the lobster bisque, the grilled shrimp and we added sauteed greens on the side which turned out to be a perfect addition to the shrimp. Everything was artfully arranged as well as delectable, and the cream brulee was a perfect ending! Sitting by the window was lovely, and we got there early enough to finish while it was still quiet (before the music, which was nice since since we wanted to visit.) Service was extremely attentive (a lovely gal, I think her name was Kaylin.) We appreciated the parking validation, too!

We ate there Tuesday evening. We were there on a Tuesday night and chose from the Price fixed menu, a terrific bargain. I started with the potato leek soup had the grilled pork chop with bacon-onion jam on the side, sweet potato mash, bacon shaved brussel sprouts that were roasted and had a deep-flavor seasoning on them that was different and delicious. My wife had salad and Chicken Picatta which she also thought was excellent. I have a gluten allergy and there were many selections from the menu. Austin, our server was excellent in his knowledge of the menu and care to answer allergy questions, very attentive without overdoing it. The wine selection was ample. The dining room is attractive and could work for many occasions. We highly recommend this great experience and value.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is fabulous. Very clean. Great atmosphere. The Riesling was sadly sweet, but we picked it :).
