We had Sunday brunch here and were almost the only folks in the restaurant. The food was well prepared and plentiful, the service was attentive without being intrusive, and the pace was a perfect transition into the day.

Gotta say that all we wanted was a decent steak restaurant. Apparently that doesn’t exist. The beet potato leak soup was too sour. Cold soup - do not recommend. The oil offered for bread dipping was bitter. No kidding. The Delmonico steak was tough, poorly...More
