Had lunch here Sunday and I thought the food was fantastic as was the service. I think the time between ordering the food and having it delivered to the table was certainly less than 10 minutes. I've always enjoyed the quality here and they've shown me that yet again. I will keep coming back

I've been to this place a few time, food quality was OK. However, last visit was a total bust. I went in at noon for lunch by myself, I was lead to a table and the waiter gave me a glass of water as every resturant did, for the next 12 to 14 minutes, not a person came up to... More

After a lovely morning shopping it was a relief to discover this very elegant , serene place to dine. It felt like an upscale wine bistro. The maitre 'd was a little cold with her reception but from there, it was a great lunch experience . We started with the chefs selection which was smoked salmon spread and exquisite crackers....

Food is excellent, nice setting. There is a large bar atmosphere. Sometimes it can be a little noisey.

I went with my best friend. We decided to sit at the bar and eat dinner, as it was not busy at all. Brittany was the bartender, and FAR from friendly, absolutely NO personality. I ordered prime rib, my friend ordered a salad. We each had a drink to start...I ordered a beer, which came with no glass, however I... More

The food is very good here and the atmosphere is calming and lovely. The service is slower but then again this isn't a place where you go to when you are in a hurry. A very nice experience.

Stopped by for a late lunch while shopping on a Saturday. The place is dark, and has mostly booth seating with no real atmosphere. The menu looked pretty good but tasted like it was made that morning rather than fresh. Given it took about 5 minutes for our meals to arrive, it likely was. The seared tuna salad was full... More

Quite a nice surprise. The old expression of "someone is watching the store" is really taken seriously here. Just what we were looking for, good food, reasonable prices, very good service. They went out of their way to make sure we were pleased. Try it,you won't be disappointed. We weren't.

Had dinner here, had some chicken dish that was good. Service was very good, server was nice and attentive. Little pricy for the food, expected little nicer but its a good meal.
