This restaurant was a real treat. The quality of the food and service was exceptional. The hostess, server and bartender all interacted with concern for our experience and created a welcoming experience. The menu entrees and specials were understood by the knowledgeble server and my selection was excellent. I will return again very soon

This is a nice restaurant and it shows in the service, food quality, and interior. It's just comfortable inside and the food is great. I would eat there every night if I could.

The service and food was excellent! We wanted for nothing! I was very impressed considering how busy the restaurant was for a Friday evening pre-show.

Prices are pretty good, the bartender knows what he... More

Went here for dinner with a friend during the week. You have to go up steps to get to the restaurant. Does not appear to be HC accessible, although maybe there is a hidden elevator. Service was nice and attentive. We both had Caesar salad, which was ok, nothing special. I've had much better Caesar salads elsewhere. I had pasta... More

Went there for work dinner. Different from the sports bar style restaurants that are more common in the area. Good food and service - not much else to add!
