Best. Steak. Ever. Husband pleasing flavor and tenderness. The service was great too. Perfect little date night restaurant. Recommend this for special occasions. Attire is dressy however you could get away with jeans and a polo if necessary.

The location is in a plaza and as has been reported, parking is difficult. Also as has been reported, it is not a place for a quiet dinner; it is loud. My companion and I had a reservation and were seated on the second floor which is a little less noisy. We would have had a drink at the bar,... More

My partner is a lover of beef so I chose our first visit to B&B to celebrate his birthday. For starters we chose the calamari. Our server commented that this was on the spicy side. Spicy it was - and delicious! It was the best calamari we've ever had! My partner chose the ribeye. I am not a lover of... More

Each of the food courses were delicious, bar service swift, and overall quality of service was excellent. Would recommend for your next special event or client dinner. Request... More

The steak is so tender and juicy you can cut it with a spoon. The service is impeccable and the 3 types of bread and butter they give you to eat are all fantastic. It is the perfect spot for a special occasion. Not family friendly because their is no childrens menu and its very fine dining, but perfect for... More

Ok, we received a $75 gift certificate that expires on 12/31/16 and decided to use it to celebrate a December birthday. We made reservations online a week prior for 7:15pm reservations. Based on comments we read about noise on 1st floor we requested to be seated upstairs when we received a call earlier in the day confirming our reservations. Our... More

We both loved our wine, her was a sweet moscato (Villa Pozzi) and mine a dry Pinot Noir (Sierra... More

HA ! Wine cost over 10.00 for 4 oz. If you order a piece of meat, you get some bread and then a piece of meat. Was hurried, didn't bring enough steak knives, took away all the rest of our silver ware. Have to ask for S/P . Pepper was empty. Had to wait for ever to get it. Rushed... More

Stopped by for an after-work wrap up with some colleagues. Both bar and restaurant was busy but our reservation paid off and we were immediately seated. Filet was perfect and the waiter was prompt and classy. A note about their seafood: I think it's way cool that they have full disclosure about who caught their seafood, what boat and at... More
