We come here every year for a friend's December birthday dinner. The waiter seemed hurried and insincere while polite. He failed to check on filling tea and coke refills. The chicken lettuce wraps we loved are off the menu. One chicken lemon feta dish the chicken was dry. One had the salmon with veggies and cauliflower. The veggies were undercooked.... More

This is a modernist restaurant - very open plan, so it can get a bit noisy, but the quality of the food is excellent. I had the filet and it was cooked to perfection, very tender. Prices are on the high end of mid-range but worth it!

The food presentation was very appealing and the server was great but the food was good - not great. The bread before dinner was good. Sitting outside was nice - it's a nice location. Will go again but not order fish which was under cooked and made me sick.

We dined here with another couple on a Saturday evening. Our reservation was honored. The server was good. The steaks and sides were tasty with generous helpings. Ambiance is a bit on loud side, but conversation is possible if you get the right table.

Awesome locally owned places. Every entre is delish and there is even out door seating for dogs. Hubby even raves about bread basket.

I had a really good churrasco steak. Not the best I have ever had.. But good enough to kill my steak craving. The rice was not something I would recommend.

This place has a little bit of everything! I've tried a few things on their menu and it all tastes delicious. On the weekends it can get a bit crowded, but you can always grab a spot near the bar. The staff are great and very accommodating! I look forward to my next visit!

First time visit to this popular restaurant and we all loved our meal. We met friends there and were looking forward to sharing a meal and catching up. After we'd ordered a group of very loud business people were seated in the booth next to ours. They were so loud we could barely hear each other talk. Our waitress graciously... More
