The hostess had to take my order because the waiter never served me even though the place was at 50% capacity. It took over 30 minutes to get my food and it was luke warm. Even though the food was tasty, the portions were small....More

The food here was supposed to be the star but honestly, I can’t remember. Our server was atrocious. He was programmed in an inappropriately arrogant manner and his attitude started from the moment he proved himself clueless as to the whiskeys available to the wine...More

We went here for a lunch date and were just thrilled with the entire experience. Great waitstaff, gorgeous room and inspired and surprising dishes. I am looking forward to trying dinner here. This was a fun and above-our-expectations lunch.

We waited 30 mins. for a martini, another 30 mins. for appetizers, and another 30 mins. for entrees. That can't all be the result of the service staff. My lamb was tough- couldn't cut through it with the knife.More

Had dinner here on a Monday night. Menu is limited, so you need to check it out ahead of time to be sure there are selections you want. Had escargot and sweetbreads which was very nice, although the mushroom selection didn't seem to pair well....More

We like this restaurant a lot for brunch and dinner. Food is great but service might be 50/50 sometimes. There are days we had great service there are days not so good.
