Like so many others we went here for our anniversary. We have heard many good things so we thought we would try it. It was a pleasant atmosphere and we enjoyed ourselves. The food was really good and plentiful. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Service was a bit slow but no big deal.

I visited this restaurant for a recent birthday celebration and the main dining room was very busy even on a Wednesday night. Service was good and the food was prepared and serviced very quickly. The menu covers many choices to please all palates.

My wife and I as well as various other family members go here every few months. A great place for a nice dinner before the show or for a special occasion. Also, the less formal eatery attached to the main dining room is a great deal

We took our mom here for lunch today. Had no idea about the place other than online reviews said food was great and the menu looked extensive. Upon arrival we were a little surprised at the understated establishment but learned that only the quick service side was open until 4:30 which is when the main dining room would open. Decided...

Lovely, cozy feeling lighting perfect. Went with 4 couple had appetizers fast with drinks then dinner. We certainly weren't rushed but attended to. Dinner was excellent we weren't waiting comfort area for our big group and there is another area where you could just sit at the bar and eat if you so desired

Thank jsf_blondie
