Service was excellent but the meal was just so-so. Had the scallops but the sauce was not up to par. Felt it had been warmed up a number of times.

Went to brunch with a group of 6. All were thrilled, even our vegetarian. My favorite was the roast beef and mac n cheese. Desserts were also fabulous.

Best meal in Lansing. Most comprehensive wine list. Excellent service from students in the Hospitality school who are well informed and professional. Have gone there for business in the past. Is a new favorite for meals out with friends and family.
