We go here for lunch every few months. The staff are very attentive without being overbearing. The French Onion Soup is magnificent and my husband said the filet mignon is the best he's had anywhere The only downside is the deserts. The look fantastic and they bring the desert card to your table to make it up which is a... More

Was at the restaurant for lunch with a friend this Christmas season. Staff were very courteous and did not hurry us or push us out inspite of the fact that they started preparing the place for dinner. Food was great, will definitely go back.

We love coming to The School for special occasions. Everything was up to the usual standards. The soothing sound of the piano player made for a nice atmosphere for this birthday celebration. I love enjoying a pint of Innis & Gunn, and there are not too many places that serve this craft beer. My 12 oz sirloin steak was cooked... More

We came here for my birthday. This was our first time to this restaurant. We ordered beef capriccio and it was so good and fresh. I ordered scallops and my son ordered junior fillet mignon and it was excellent. The waiter, to our surprise, asked if it was my son's birthday then he offered us a free slice of cheese... More

Right, I thought. A fine dining place in the midst of massive commercial-industrial buildings? well, The School was there first, and the 20th Century city fathers did the right thing by preserving the old school building. Someone else figured that the old building could be sympathetically adapted. And they did it right. The matching brick and stone structure offers large... More
