    This place is awesome! We went here with our full family (kids included) and everyone LOVED their food. We all had to have everyone else try a bit of our dishes because they were all so delicious. Even the complimentary bread is incredible. Not only was the food exceptional, our server was so amazing and interacted so well with our kids. He treated our daughter like a princess and she already asked when she can come back! We highly recommend!

    It was our anniversary and everything was very good! From the blue cheese salad, the amazing bread and our entrees were great! They brought out a free dessert with a chocolate piece on top that said happy anniversary! Our waiter was awesome!!

    Nice place although conversation is hard in the front room when the little band gets going. Have been there twice in ten days, and the menu for mains looks a bit narrow when that happens. The food itself, however, is excellent, and the wine list both by glass and bottle is also very good. Table service is also excellent. Will certainly be there again.

    Undercooked food; hard potatoes, what seemed like raw chicken.
