Pricey but good. The ahi sliders with wasabi sauce were the best part of the meal. Steak nacho appetizer was nothing special but the stuffed scallop entree was excellent. Everybody liked their steaks. Good wine list. Non-call vodka martini featured Stoli, which was nice, but fair for the price. Best service I've experienced anywhere in several years, truly outstanding (ask for Heather). Skip dessert. If you want something sweet, head over to Destihl and get the Pound of Chocolate Cake, which serves 3-4 people.

We came in on a recommendation from a local friend as we were traveling through. We each ordered something different and had 2 bottles of wine for our large party. The food was unbelievable ad the menu extensive. I had the steak delmonico and my wife had the salmon. As someone who has lived in the coast, my expectations for fish in the Midwest are pretty low, but I would put this against the best you'll find in any major coastal city.

In addition, the wait staff was attentive, helpful and most importantly knowledgeable. It's nice, for a change, to ask a waiter for information about a menu item and they know it off hand. this sit some Applebee's microwave special, the food is fresh, made from scratch and can be altered to taste however you want.

All I can say is if you are stopping through, don't miss this place, a canary highlight of our trip!!!
