Waiter was ausome as well as the scenery. Have been her several times , even had our daughters wedding here. Food has always been good but unfortunately this time not so much. I had the ribeye steak and my wife had the trout. The steak was cooked perfectly but had no taste . It was very bland . My wife's fish was overcooked. Veggies and potatoes were good. I noticed a similar review a couple of days ago about the steak. Maybe time to look into this complaint!!

Massive windows to take it all in. Lovely dining room and atmosphere. Food was fine. The liver and onions presentation was extremely unappetizing. Was not kid friendly at all. Needed to constantly ask for extras (napkins, straws, pepper, spoons etc).

The meat loaf was delicious and so was the creme brulee. The steak was perfectly cookex but lacked flavour.

Disappointed when we arrived even with a reservation no one was available to meet and seat us. Discovered later the "complimentary" birthday cheesecake was included in the bill.

The staff were welcoming! One comment about my meal is only order the Vegetarian Linguine if you love eggplant because it was chock full of it. I don't mind it but I would have made a different selection if I had known it was basically an eggplant dish.

The food was delicious the atmosphere was warm and cozy. Ryder was our host/waiter and he was amazing. Very friendly young man. We will certainly recommend this place, actually I have already : ) You may see me come back with the girls for your wild women's weekend lol. Sincerely Theresa Wilson

Our server, Sarah was excellent - attentive, efficient and very pleasant. The food was hot and tasty. However, the menu choices were more for pub fare (Wild Blue Yonder) than a fine dining restaurant. We were hoping for more choice than was presented.

Staff were amazing and very very kind and friendly. Menu was the same each day which was disappointing. Food was great! Awesome fries. Only the steak frites were a bit chewy😞

Amazing atmosphere, friendly and accommodating staff! Food was fantastic, would have gave 5 starts except steak was cooked well done, asked for medium rare but we LOVED the season veggies and the desserts were amazing. Menu was reduced but assuming that’s due to COVID. Sanitizer everywhere which was fantastic.
