We came to try the Macintosh during restaurant week. The menu choices were nicely varied, with a great selection of starters including the homemade ricotta gnudi that were light and fluffy and the beef belly that was melt-in-your mouth satisfying. The fish selections were excellent. We wanted some wine which was not available, but were able to try a couple alternatives to find a good selection for dinner. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu, wine, and was very attentive. Excellent service! They made us feel welcome and we left feeling that this restaurant was on the top of our list to visit again. Thank you!

Our server Zack was very attentive and knowledgeable, we had the Scallop appetizer which was very good and the Ricotta Gnudi which was good but not exceptional.
For entree I had the Wreck fish which was delicious and my wife had the Tile fish which was equally excellent. The clam sauce was a great addition to this dish.
The Pecorino truffle frites were OK presentation was great and the volume of fries is ridiculously large. You could never eat them all! For dessert we tried the Peanut butter cup, Peanut Praline, Caramel, and Chocolate Crisps. Tasty
Zack helped us choose excellent wine with the meal and could not have done a better job! Thanks

We had a large group of (8) and we all very much enjoyed our visit. My number one tip is to save yourself for the CAB Deckle- holy monkies is it delicious. Deckle is the cap of the ribeye steak- basically the best part. I'm a take it or leave it person when it comes to steak, but this dish made me want to lick the plate. It was tender and flavorful and perfect and you should definitely order it (unless you're a vegetarian, then you should order it for someone else).

The cheddar brats were also a standout, and if you're a potato fan they recommend you order mashed potatoes with your fries and dip them in it like ketchup. All delicious and I'm still working on buttoning my pants three weeks later.

Our service was great, it took a while to get seated (even though we had a reservation), but all was well once we were. We sat in the garden in the back which is kinda like a picnic pavilion with a clear vinyl wall on one side. It sounds weird, but was very pleasant. They had string lights and wood paneled walls and you kinda felt like you were outside though you were in air conditioning. The lights were dimmed and there were candles- a nice atmosphere. The whole experience was relaxed and enjoyable and the food was outstanding. It's definitely worth a visit.
