Once upon a time this was our go to restaurant for special occasions. Could always count on great food! We had taken a hiatus after a so-so meal on our last visit, but recent trip was more disappointing. Didn't like my entree at all. Rice was tasteless. accompanying jam tasted awful. Makes you wonder if they taste any of their dishes before serving them. Used to love appetizers here but saw nothing we could share....used to have asparagus or portobello fries. Dessert wasn't even fully cooked. Keep running out of water. They have work to do before I'll be back.

We are locals and love dining at this place! Ben Leger is always spot on with his wine pairings and the chef amazes our palates all the time! BBQd shrimp is our staple appetizer, but this is a must for foodies!

My wife and I went here for our 12th anniversary. The place is small but just about perfect. The food was excellent (the portions were a little small though), and the servers were almost too attentive. They were very helpful and answered any questions we had about the wine selections available.

Went w/out a reservation; were seated in the back by a table w/ 4 rowdy children. Felt punished. I like kids, but not at that price! Finally the manager moved us.
Food was very good. Not overly spiced. (Almost under spiced.) Though enjoyable, not enough to justify the price or a return trip.

Portions are too small,,, AVOID the meatloaf,,, oversalted and tiny.
This place is overpriced. A (very) small salad, with a mediocre dressing, maybe 2 ounces, for $5.00?? There is more lettuce on a Big Mac.
