Loved it.. Loved it..

We went for a birthday dinner, party of 4. from beginning to end it was fab! This place is worth a try for anyone who appreciates wonderfully prepared and tasting food, along with excellent service. The wait staff here is not your regulare wait staff. These guys need to know how to not only make a table side cesar, which is INCREDIBLE!! but they need to know how to make crepe suzette, a version of what looks like steak diane.. These guys have to be trained to prepare some of the table side dishes on the menu. We will go back for sure... LOVED IT

It was excellent!!!

I want to start off buy saying that I read the reviews here before going for my 40th birthday dinner with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. I was so worried it was going to be terrible. It was nothing like what I had worried about. The wait staff is very professional, courteous and attentive. It is old school service, (no pun intended ) The food was excellent. I am very picky and I cannot complain at all about the food, taste or portions. It was all excellent. The cesar salad, that they prepare table side was incredible! So good in fact that we went back two weeks later for more!! We have been there now twice in the month of June 2008. And I will definitely go back

I am shocked at the rave reviews that this restaurant gets. My escargot was swimming in greasy butter - 3 of us offered this, not one of us finished this tiny appetizer. My filet was cooked as ordered so a point is due here. Plating of the meal was horrible and consisted of one carrot, a small piece of roasted red pepper,one ENORMOUS broccoli floret and a baked potato. The potato automatically comes with any steak entree as none of us who had steak actually ordered a baked potato. When you receive your meal with your baked potato, the wait staff march out to garnish it for you. I believe this act is meant distract you from the fact that you will be paying a lot of money for something so mediocre. While I completely understand the 'less is more' plating philosophy, but this was nothing more than a basic banquet hall style meal. I am stunned as to how anyone could think that this restaurant is anything more than average at best.

Excellent, from the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave. A true dining experience. The service is exceptional, the food is out of this world- cut the steak with a butter knife. We love this place and will return. We also had our wedding here and it was "Perfection"

Reservations were made and we were seated promptly for Valentine's Day dinner. The Seafood Platter is delicious and can feed more than one person... Unlike what the waiter said. He discouraged us from just ordering this dish alone. This was alright, as the other dish was a chicken breast. Quite tasty too. We have been here once before. Don't get the French onion soup, it is full of salt! Also, I found the Maitre D' the first time we came to be very snobbish.
