We arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation and they graciously accommodated us. We were seated in the upstairs dining area. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our server seemed a bit frazzled but took great care of us. I chose this restaurant because the menu looked fantastic. The problem is that the food was very disappointing. I had the Boulliabaise....

Arrived around 5:00 on a Saturday with a party of four. The place was not very busy yet and had a laid back vibe. However, our waiter was not attentive at all and after our food finally arrived, i had to wait for close to ten minutes for remaining tableware so i could eat. It only came after i asked... More

We had been here before when in town on business and we loved it. This time they definitely did not disappoint. The food was amazing. Service was great. There was an issue with our reservation getting lost and they accommodated our party of six anyway. We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.

The menu at lunch was small. The service was good and friendly. Food was fresh but nothing special. Sounded good when described on the menu.

We were here for a wedding rehearsal dinner so we were upstairs in what I guess was their banquet room area. It was very nice and the service was very good as was the food also. Maybe next time we're in town we can come back for dinner and order off the menu. I'm sure it would be great!

We were there on a business meeting and some of us had to leave quickly to the airport. The service was quick and courteous and the food arrived very quickly which meant we all got to eat together before the flight. Nothing too fancy on the menu but good food and drinks with same prices.

Service was very good. Immediately seated, and within a few minutes we had our drink orders taken. The staff checked back often (but not too often!) if we were okay and needed anything. Interesting menu, the food is diverse and well prepared. Good sized portions as well. Both my wife and I ended up taking lunch home with us. (a... More

We had an excellent dinner here. Our server left us wanting for nothing without asking too many questions. Although the price is higher than usual, the quality of food is well worth every penny. The bar selection of beers and cocktail was more than adequate. I would have no reservations about returning here. Personally I think their shrimp cocktail, although... More
