My wife and I love this restaurant. The food is consistently amazing, the atmosphere is fun (you can watch the cook prep and plate the food as the kitchen is open-to-view), and the prices are very reasonable. The same can be said for the their service, which has always been of the highest quality. Their menu changes with the season,... More

Looking for a place to excite your tastebuds? This is the place to be. We went during their fall menu. This menu is made up of their best dishes over the last couple of years. The staff was attentive and pleasant. The kitchen is open to the restaurant so you can see your food get plated. It got a "WOW"... More

I wanted something a little sweet on a break and went in here to pick up a dessert. It was a pumpkin cheesecake and it had the distinction of being both the most expensive and the worst tasting cheesecake I have ever had from a restaurant. Not the best combination. I would give this place another shot for a meal,... More
