Early drinks and an appetizer. Bloody Mary and vodka martini were great but the steak sliders were melt in your mouth amazing. Chef Larry Keck came to our table to introduce himself and make sure we were happy. Thumbs up as a go back.

We hadn't booked but the Maitre De found us a table by the window. Water and menus appeared and a bottle of Chardonnay ordered. I chose a ceasar salad... More

Maybe if you sit outside the noise level won't be so high. We were disappointed with our food and thought it very over priced!

I have eaten here five times at least in the past 2-3 years. The first two were outstanding and its a good alternative for a nice place when Town is booked full. But the last two meals were very disappointing. Ate last week and the mussel dish was as close to awful as you could get. The mussels were overcooked,... More

I frequent this restaurant about one time a month - usually when I can't get a table across the street at TOWN. This place really needs better cooks/Chiefs. The food is just not that good. Last weekend I had the breakfast platter. The scrambled eggs were dry and not very hot, the potatoes were full of onions and dry, the... More

Great menu and delicious food! The Beet salad was delicious, and I shared the Salmon with a friend and they split if for us and served it on two beautiful plates! Homemade ice cream and biscotti for dessert…YUMMY

The food was delicious. I had a flank steak with melted cheese etc. on top. Service was good. Our whole party loved the tiramazu. ( sorry can't spell it) but we rated this the best we have ever eaten.
