As soon as we walked in I heard kids. I specifically pick restaurants where I am not subjected to ther people's children. I was very sure this fine, upscale restaurant would not have children shrieking and running about. My mistake.
Service was superb, food was mediocre. The prices would make one think the food was delectable. My Mother in Law's bresded chicken was hard and she was unable to cut. We sent back for a new meal. Need I say how important it is to please the always unhappy Mother in Law????

We walked in and was immediately seated. The seating was very comfortable and the waiter came over right away. The waiter was very patient and professional, we didn't feel rushed either. After we ordered, are food came out within 15 minutes, very hot and fresh. My girlfriend got pasta with sausage, not over seasoned, but to perfection. I got a burger, which was fantastic, it wasn't over cooked, the bun was soft and fresh. The fries were out of this world.
Overall I was over satisfied and would definitely return. The environment was quiet, with the amount of people in there I expected it to be more noise, but with the spacing it worked out well. I ended up tipping the waiter $40 because the service was just that good.

I do plenty of reviews and I am very honest, I looked at the previous reviews and was worried, but it turned out to be one of the best restaurants I've been to.

Three in the group. Seated in compliance with CDC guidelines. Table was very small in size and chairs were as well. Most women had to place their purses on the floor. Seat could not accommodate an average size person and a purse. The back of the chair was not designed for that either (we get it, may have had to get new furniture to accommodate this crazy virus - I don’t know). A few errors with what was ordered and what went on the bill. Overall the food was good and we may return post-COVID to see if things are different.

And the last one day in October we reserved a table for outside. We ordered a bottle of wine and appetizers. The appetizer special was a tuna tartare over avocado salad and wrapped in cucumber...which was outstanding. It was served with crostinis. Later that evening we had dinner which was also very good. Even after the sun went down it was warm oenough to sit outside and the fire was lit near our table. I love this place! The service is spot on... checking on you just often enough to take care of your needs. It's a summer favorite spot. I have also enjoyed the happy hours inside when things were "normal." Looking forward to those times again!

My wife and I went for dinner having only been there one other time for drinks. We were not disappointed. Plenty of parking for the Resturant and we were seated immediately in a nice table next to the window. The food was fair priced and very delicious. The best part of the experience was the service. Rebecca was very attentive and on top of things. The bar was running a little slow but instead of ignoring us she kept us updated and was all over it. It was overall a nice time and we will for sure be going back. Very cool place.

Our server Erica was phenomenal. The food was good, but for the price point, I expected a little better. The calamari was very good. The burger was ordered med rare and it was med to med well. But, it was delicious. The carbonara was ok, but very heavy and unimpressive. The tiramisu was unique and delicious. More than enough for two. Our service was fantastic.

This was our second visit (over two years) and the issues that were there last time remain. First, the food is very good and well prepared/presented. Our server was great and TRIED to make our visit more pleasant, however
We had made a reservation noting that we were celebrating a birthday. The table we were given was on the hallway to the bathroom and near the conference room in the restaurant. It was also in the bar area. It was a 6-top that was broken apart for the two of us. Note that there were plenty of other tables in a much more private set up available, and remained open our entire 2+ hour meal duration. A three person party was shortly thereafter seated in the other 4-top of our split 6-top.....with all the other open tables. The party in the bar that began after that spilled over to just a table or so away from us. Clearly the ambience for the occasion was lost. Important to note that although we not in suit and dress, we were well attired.

Our meal was clearly delayed for what we told was a party that was taking the attention of the kitchen. This could be somewhat understood IF the three top sharing our 6-top had not been fully served and completed their meal before we received our meal.

If you wish to order a carry out meal, the food is quite good. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the meal, go elsewhere.
