Best Happy Hour in town during nice weather. Reasonable booze prices and fantastic happy hour menu that changes on a regular basis. Service is consistent. Never have had a bad thing to say about the experience.

Ecellent evening, everything we ordered was excellent! Everything was very flavorfull and cooked to perfection. My halibut was like eating three layers of greatness. Top was nice golden crest , then moist tender middle to full flavor bottom.

Travelzoo offered a 1/2 price coupon for their 4-course meal with wine pairing, so I surprised my wife for our anniversary. We had a 6:00 reservation, but happened to be finished with some shopping and stopped in at 5:00. They had just opened and let...More

This was highly rated, and as a vegetarian I saw that there were many interesting menu choices. It was expensive, but frankly worth it. Very elegant atmosphere, yet totally relaxed and casual service. Though professional. My 13 yr. old son is a 'foodie' so we...More

Michael Smith, and the chef the restaurant is named after, offered up a fantastic evening for my wife and I. We splurged with wine and the 4-course dinner, which allows you smaller portions from the main dining list and not just a prix fixe menu....More

I had a crunchy salad with a truly delicious dressing (lots of fresh green beans, tomatoes, etc) and the eight hour roast pork on a bed of green onion risotto that was so ridiculously delicious I could have eaten just that and given it a...More

Perfect place for an intimate dinner or for a small group of close friends. The staff was exceptional in explaining the menu offerings and the presentation was suburb. Greatly appreciated was the balance that the staff struck, serving us, but not making us feel rushed.
