My friend enjoyed her meal; the wine selection is excellent and the dessert and salad were very good. Would not recommend the vegetarian entree, which was the only selection.

We ate here after along flight and check-in. Decided to not to go out as we were tired. Food and service was great here, but rather pricey.

Beautiful decor and artwork to provide a charming experience. Excellent food, especially the outstanding duck. Scallops were also done perfectly. Liked the choice of 2 or 3 oz martinis! Very helpful for gluten-free diners. Thoughtful service.

We went in for a quick lunch because my husband wanted to try their famous chef's lobster roll before heading to the airport. He wasn't disappointed. I instead enjoyed the stuffed mozzarella over the shaved asparagus salad; it was divine. The service was excellent too.
