Virgin tequila sunrises for the kids. Bottomless mimosas for the adults. Perfect eggs Benedict. A hot mess with eggs, pastrami and cabbage. Just right hash browns & an attentive server. The experience overall was A+

We were celebrating ou 17th wedding anniversary. Our waitress was incredible. She made sure everything was perfect and her choice of wine was spot on. We will be celebrating with them again and again.

Food is amazing. Sometimes the servers forget things, but overall wonderful experience. It was for my birthday so was hoping for a little extra special something. Mostly did not disappoint.

Although the restaurant is lovely and cozy and the wait staff is very competent, our Thanksgiving dinner wasn't all that good. The dressing was dry and my food was just a big pile of potatoes, gravy, Turkey, and cranberry sauce instead of being nicely arranged...More

The restaurant is a convenient location to the Hotel Murano. Service was slow (glacier rate) despite minimal patronage. Expensive- the menu was overly ambitious and the entrees did not live up to the hype. Spent a lot for a little in terms of satisfaction.

The food was great, scallops cooked to perfection and I loved the cauliflower with tomatoes and cheese. I also really appreciated that gave us as quiet a table as possible so my husband could hear me. Wonderful dinner!
