The place showed a lot of promise at first look, but mostly just emptied my wallet. My steak was a bit tough especially as I ordered the rib-eye which should always be tender, my wife ordered the trout. The trout was a smallish portion and...More

My husband and I ate here (first time for me), and it exceeded my expectations! The fillet was so tender, it melted in my mouth. The mashed potatoes were also very good. I’m gluten sensitive and the waitress was very accommodating and let me know...More

This is a nice quality meal and the zip sauce is to die for. It’s expensive but worth it. Will definitely be going back.

Pricy but good.About $100 for two with drinks. I only had salad and clam chowder but they were good. I would get chowder again. Others in the group liked the filet. I would go again if it were for a special occasion.

I was not tremendously impressed with the quality, flavor, or portions of the food here. The service was good and our server paced the food very well to the pace we were enjoying our meal. It's possibly understandable that he did not know the fresh...More

Walking in, we found the bar hoping in the front room, but were pleased the dining room was less crowded. Gabby quickly introduced herself and was pleasant and helpful throughout the night. Great selections on the menu, which made choosing what to order difficult. We...More

Food entrees are good to excellent! Not quite as good as across the street. Service is great and seating is in comfortable setting. Good choice but not the same!

Actually I'd suggest you head over to the royal park hotel- given the special occasion and small group size they might be more accommodating. Sure not the same level of quality, but some of their specials are close... More
