The minute you step in, you know you're in for a treat. It's on a busy road in Aurora, so I wasn't sure how the food would be, but it's an oasis of calm and elegant but not fussy. Jennifer is the perfect server, funny and knowledgeable, and the tables are spaced far enough away to not experience every detail... More

We wanted to try some place new during Restaurant Week, and this was convenient to all of us. The beet appetizer with goat cheese and other goodies was as fantastic flavor combo. Both the steak and fish entrees were exceptional. The desserts were average. Loved the ambiance.

Best meal we have had in a long time. It's a bit noisy inside, but the restaurant is small so that can't be avoided. Eric our server was delightful. Steak bruschetta was GREAT. Ribeye and Pork chop entrees were perfect, with the best brussels sprouts we've ever had. Great drink menu. Bread pudding and chocolate tore desserts were divine. We... More

Start with a fabulous Martini menu, I liked the Pomegranate Martini and their Cosmo is almost as good as what I make for myself. The menu features several entrees that are exceptional. The Rocky Mountain Salmon is one of my favorites, salmon in a brown sugar based marinade. The Buffalo Pot Roast is great as is the seared Ahi Tuna.... More

We had an excellent dinner last night. I was hesitant to have ahi but it was exceptional. We had a party of 8 and our service was exceptional as well. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

On a recent visit to Aurora, my family and I decided to try this restaurant. It was a delight! The atmosphere is clean and cozy. There are very nice black & white photos on the walls of Colorado scenes which adds to the art feeling of the place. It's very comfortable and relaxing. We arrived around 11:30 and were seated...
