Outstanding service by Norma Jean. One of the best meals we have ever had, anywhere. Salmon and wild mushroom risotto was unbelievable. The carrot caramel cheesecake is sinful.

We went with friends, one of whom is a chef for dinner on Sunday evening. They have a new wine list, we tried a new wine from Argentina. Merlo, soft taste with a nice bouquet. The prime rib was done to perfection and the vegetables were done just right. A garlic mashed potato was served as well. This was a... More

Norma Jean is still amazing! We had a rez for group of 12. Super busy with Springlicious Menu and the servers were cheerful, efficient. We had a lot of fun and the food, in every case, was delicious. Very reasonable price for 3 course meal. Great experience. 👍🏼

We all met at Grape and Olive to celebrate a birthday event. The chef and staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. The meals were delicious .. all were chosen from the menu. The beef tenderloin was delicious as a filet mignon served with mashed potatoes and string beans. The vegetarian dish was a custom order by one of... More

Foods as usual quite good. But management should do something about service. Restaurant is literally empty - and it's self serve buffet so does not take up the two waitress time - but instead of Paypal ng attention to customers - they are forever behind the counter instead of refilling coffee.

Stopped in for late Sunday Brunch on a recommendation. It was a nice enough buffet. The food was pretty good, but the service was unfortunately really awful. Our waitress was totally untrained and didn't know anything about the food choices or the wines. Actually brought our table a red wine when asked for a white and did the same thing... More

We were able to get a table even though the restaurant was fully booked. The manager was able to finesse the foster just enough to accommodate two more patrons, provided we ate a little earlier than planned. The menu was full of interesting choices.
