Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff. Food was very good, but not served piping hot. Appetizers were delicious, the smoked salmon was presented very well.

Tried the new location. Not the same, appetizers delicious, main courses were a disappointment. At the old location we were always happy with the food.

I love this place! It's quiet and has a unique menu. There are many healthy options. They have an excellent vandalia onion soup. The salads are very good.

He and the staff went overboard to create a celebration of joy, love, and fabulous food!! A week later friends are still commenting about what a wonderful party it was, how... More

Would rate this number one restaurant in Elmhurst, IL. The food is full of flavor and each dish is as good as the next. Have dined with family and with friends, always good service. Great for a romantic dinner.
