Fresh bread with dipping oil was brought, and the oil... More

Went out to dinner with some colleagues after a long day. Great selection of drinks and food. Cedar plank salmon was out of this world. Not one person had a complaint. Wait staff was so nice and always readily available.

Drinks at the bar were well made and good sized. The dinner in the back was delicious. The oysters we had as an appetizer were wonderful.

The service was well done and we never felt... More

Visited for dinner one evening and enjoyed a beautiful meal. We returned for cocktails another evening and there was live music in the front bar area. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Their Manhattan Clam chowder was very good. A bit bland compared to most but enjoined. Our group of four were originally seated at a cramped table in the front but they were able to find a more suitable one in the back dining room. Service was so-so but we were not in a rush. Everyone had a different dish and... More

Menu is mainly high end comfort food. Great burgers. For the most part reliable quality though I had a mishap the other day with a salmon wrap that was way too salty. Lovely staff, very comfortable environment. I haven't checked out the live music in the evenings, but intend to.

This is a great, lively spot to go in Westfield. The bar and restaurant are always filled with locals, and when there is live entertainment, it has a special ambiance that can't be beat in Westfield.
