We celebrated a birthday here a few weeks ago and it was a mess. Granted we did have a large party and we didn't expect to have the fast service, but we sat down at 7:30 and they didn't start taking orders for almost an hour, because it took them that long to get the beverages. There were at least... More

Went here for a business lunch, and can honestly say that the food was okay. I ordered a burger, my colleague had a very bizarre chicken salad. The chicken looked like tempura fried chicken (weird!). The portions were large, but the food is not worth the price and the very long wait time. We went during their lunch rush hour... More

Always love the atmosphere here. Server was really attentive. We got the Traditional Nachos which I thoroughly enjoyed and shared the Shrimp San Francisco which we thought was a little bland. Sauce needed more seasonings or cheese or something.

This was my second visit. My first visit was for dinner but this time was for a birthday lunch. I love the atmosphere of wood and mirrors....it makes the place seem larger but still very cozy at the same time. We had a reservation...our hostess was great.....very attentive and knew the menu very well. I settled for the Hot Vegetable... More

I tagged along with my husband for a business dinner. The menu was very diverse including everything from hamburgers to filet Mignons. The man bun server wasn't the friendliest or the most efficient but he wasn't the worst. The Filet was cooked perfect Pittsburgh style & very succulent. My husband had a slab of ribs & said they were awesome.... More

The best salads in town can easily feed two people. Good, fresh items that will fill anyone and serve as lunch next day

I've been here twice before for lunch. The food was very good. I went on a Saturday for dinner. I ordered a ribeye medium well, it was black on the outside, well done on the inside, and had a lot of fat. The waiter didn't ask any questions about how it was. I will go back, but will not order...

We dropped in for the first time and were a little leery because the parking lot was less than half empty. The food was excellent and the service was just the best ever. We had several changes and Joshua N. was always delighted to help up.
