Overpriced for the lack of ambiance. Food was good, not great. Service was EXTREMELY slow for a Saturday night (8/27). No apology or explanation from server, although she was pleasant. No manager visited our table. One and done. We won't even try breakfast.

The HOOK is a hidden petite meet. Glenn the owner/chef is a masterful nut. His love for food porn is wonderfully displayed once plated. Glenn loves conversation with his patrons and will prepare whatever your palette craves as long as it's in season. JUST DO...More
