We returned recently to Connecticut and ate dinner here with friends. All of us enjoyed our entrees and the service was great. Nice to know some things don’t change.

I've heard good things about this place, but they must be talking about the other location. The host was not welcoming or friendly at all, seemed resentful that he had to seat us in an almost empty dining room. The waiter was not attentive at...More

Nicely decorated and an easy place to relax and talk without too much activity all around. The waiter said he was "new" but did an outstanding job. He must have been new to this place, not the job.

The cozy atmosphere of the restaurant puts you at ease while friendly manager Shawn seats you. This restaurant has amazing drinks, but if you don't want a drink, they aren't pushy. The wait staff is amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. I love the family style salad,...More

We had taken a break from this spot for a while b/c of bad service. We returned June 2018. The service was much better, the food was just OK.

We are open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner with two exceptions. We are not open on Thanksgiving or Christmas. We think it is impratant for our staff to at least have those two special days to be with their family.
