My husband and I went here for our special anniversary dinner. After waiting 5 minutes, the waiter came by to say he would be back in a few minutes. Several minutes later, someone brought us water. There was no question about drinks or anything. Finally, he came over and we ordered their "specialty" deviled egg appetizer, salads, and 2 filets.... More

...and that's where it stops. I had raspberry chicken, that was uninspired. Chicken was breaded and dry, as were the mashed potatoes and please don't serve asparagus if not fresh. The raspberry was overwhelming and I had to search for the brie. My hubby got the fish taco and although the fish was good the presentation , was lacking. The... More

Food was very good. My husband loved the deviled eggs appetizer. Our salads were fresh and our entrees were very nicely presented as well as delicious. Service was a little slow but we were in no rush so we just enjoyed our cocktails. Prices were a little high but not out of order. Would definitely eat here again.

My wife order a beef dish and loved it. I agree. I order poorly -- fish tacos, which was the wrong choice for this restaurant. The most interesting and, strangely, satisfying experience was with the sommelier. My wife prides herself on knowing wine (not a snob, but she lived in Europe for many years and has good taste, whereas mine... More

Restaurant was very pretty, but difficult to find if you didn't know exactly where to go. The food was good, service was attentive. I Would return to this restaurant.
