Plenty of space and good for both large and small groups, cozier up front, but still nice in back section. Use of wood in decor makes it warm, but still modern. Service was excellent, friendly, patient, efficient and helpful. Food, most important factor, was great....More

Was heading to Allen’s to enjoy some late fall warmth in the back patio when they abruptly told us they’d closed the patio for the season (Really? Early Oct? Things have changed there—too bad, as they lost $200+ in business). So, after a quick online...More

Well if you like Steak Frites for toddlers then you’ll be satisfied - otherwise you’ll be very hungry afterward. The service was excellent but after $128 spent on dinner and drinks, my wife and I made a sandwich when we got home.

My husband purchased the Chef's Tasting menu dinner for two through Groupon. We enjoy having meals we could not easily, if ever replicate at home. The Chef's Tasting offers samples such that while it's a six course dinner, we were sated rather than stuffed. The...More

Food should be taste and visual combined. The poor lighting made it near impossible to appreciate the visual. When serving white soup use a contrasting colour for the bowl or turn up the lights. We have been twice before and raved about the food, so...More
