This restaurant recently underwent major renovations, which have resulted in significant improvements to the decor and menu. However, the service still needs improved, as it took over one hour to receive our lunch order.

Superior wine list; choices of lamb, beef, chicken, fish entrees; wonderful first-class interior and awesome bar and bartenders! Styled on Cameron Mitchell world class restaurants, this is a jewel in midwestern, casual, farm country Mount Vernon. Top notch and worth your trip!

Ordered the Braised Prime Rib Hash and it was a complete mess. The poached eggs were hard boiled, the fingerling potatoes were crunchy and hard as a rock and the "prime rib" was dry and tough. Our waitress didn't come to check on our table until everyone was finished eating. I brought up the issues with the meal and she... More

I ordered a Ribeye Steak and a salad. I could have possibly been the best steak I have eaten - at least in the last few years!

A two floor restaurant with multiple rooms for different events. Elegant settings with tablecloths & silverware. A good liquor & wine menu available. Courteous & alert staff was appreciated. The main floor has an old fashioned, well stocked bar as well as a unique table setting next to "the library." Our dinner party had a pork & a chicken dinner... More

One of the best restaurants I've been to in awhile. The food was AMAZING. I had the salmon and all I can say is I have never had seafood that good in Ohio before. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic. The decor is like walking back in time when you enter: copper colored tin ceiling, plush deep blue velvet seating,... More

It was worth the wait! The new decor is elegant and sophisticated, but still gives a nod to the traditional style of the building. The service can hold its own against any fine restaurant in a larger city. But I found the menu somewhat interesting. At one end of the spectrum you have an $8 sandwich, and at the other... More
