Went for dinner with friends I hadn't seen in quite a few years. A really nice spot. Good service, quiet so we could talk and catch up. Good food, good service, they didn't rush us along. Seems like an old-school family-owned restaurant. Very friendly staff,...More

My fiancee and I tried Christopher's for the 1st time last night for Valentines Day dinner and we were extremely impressed! The atmosphere was busy (due to the holiday) but maintained an intimacy despite the various filled tables (almost all couples). The food was awesome!...More
