Attentive service, properly-paced timing, and great food. On this visit, we had the salmon and the lamb shank - both were fantastic (especially the reduction on the braised shank!) Creme brûlée was a wonderful finish!

Tired salad, inattentive service, ok entrees. Always enjoyed service and food quality before. Tired and dated menu, which we knew, but needs to change some

It has been ten years since I have eaten here, due to moving away from St. Louis, I worried that there could be new owners, a different cuisine, that standards might have slipped. Happily, the food and service were excellent. No disappointments. Well, okay, I...More
