Our overall experience recently was quite good. Our waiter was attentive and anticipated our needs. He was quite embarrassed when they did not have a popular bourbon. He offered an alternative and it was very good. We each had an appetizer. The stuffed mushrooms were very good while the Clams Casino were a little (and I do mean little) disappointing.... More

This is a great local restaurant. The food is generally good but often heavily buttered that makes it very filling. The staff are attentive and friendly. It is a great spot to meet with friends before or after a movie

Pleasant surrounding, great food and terrific staff. We were party of 17 for dinner on a very busy Saturday night and from the time we sat down (at the exact time of our reservation) to the 3 plus hours that we left we had wonderful service.

I find the food here quite average. I ordered Fruite de Mare, and it tasted as though they had just taken it out of the refrigerator. Nothing really exceptional about it at all. Had it as an entree instead of an appetizer, and it was just okay. The desserts seem to be much better!

Stopped by for dinner on a visit to Madison. Loved the food, as always, and introduced our friends to another place we live to visit.

Tried the fall menu today and it was wonderful: pumpkin soup, pumpkin risotto and bakd ziti siciliana with eggplant and meatballs, and the fried zucchini sticks were all delicious. The service is excellent, the wine list is very good. The bar was packed and bustling on a Friday evening but we got in without a reservation.
