    Terribly busy so there was a wait between courses. It’s obvious that it’s still difficult to hire staff. Still, we like this place very much.

    Everything from booking table to ambience is what one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber, maître d’, knowledgeable, polite and welcoming, tables, immaculately, clean, and properly set up. Wait staff also knowledgeable, polite, and efficient. Regarding the M of the exercise of going to a restaurant being food, the menu is extensive without being too long the courses are clearly delineated, and wait staff were knowledgeable about the entire menu, and very descriptive of the specials that were an offer. All the food was presented well, and was exceedingly satisfying in taste and amount.

    Comparing to last year when I took my parents to celebrate their 67th anniversary where service, along with celebrating this milestone was excellent! Took them again this year for their 68th anniversary, as they really enjoyed their lunch experience last year; compared to excellence of last year, service this year was lacking. Long lags between coming back to table and making sure one had everything, food good, though nothing spectacular and definitely no fanfare for a couple celebrating 68th anniversary.

    I've eaten here several times over the last 8 or 9 years. This time was disappointing. The food was a much smaller portion and overpriced. Very sad. I understand a price increase, but not that kind of jump while making the portions 3 or 4 time smaller.

    I think maybe y'all bit off more than you could chew with this Mother's Day Special. The server was pleasant but slow - disappearing for swaths of time. I guess it took 20 minutes for him to show up to take my drink order. The room was loud and, with all the servers (literally) running around, had a chaotic feel. The food was pretty good, if excessive for my appetite. The Ceasar salad was warm, the soup arrived without chives, the sea bass, while beautifully cooked, was overwhelmed by all the glop around and under it. Due to all this, the meal was, in my view, grossly overpriced.

    The food was average as you would seat in a banquet event quality, the meat was undercooked, the cremburlea was not made out of fresh ingredients, the restaurant was not busy but the staff were overwhelmed, and lost in their next step of service. There was no music, overall was an OK Mother's day event.

    So I brought my sweet Mother here for Mother's Day and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The place was absolutely gorgeous and lively. The 4 course meal was absolutely delicious. We both had the lobster bisque, Caesar salad, beef bourguignon, and the creme brulee for dessert. Everything was brought out timely and seasoned well. The beef was my favorite and was so succulent and the veggies that accompanied it were cooked perfectly tender. I will absolutely come back again but maybe for a dinner or murder mystery night.

    The wait staff was very kind and wonderful! The food, while overall was good, was slightly over-priced. We sat directly behind the musician, which sadly made us unable to speak/ hear one another at dinner, however, was not exactly the restaurants fault.

    Excellent dinner. Medallions with crab and lobster - the filet was cooked perfectly the crab/lobster was negligible but sauce was rich and creamy. Lamb chops were cooked medium rare with a mustard sauce that was above the usual mint sauce, however they were rather small and you only get three. Would not recommend desserts. The bread pudding was tasty but strange - no discernible bread just a thick custard and very, very sweet with the bourbon sauce. Profiteroles were overcooked and hard. So would definitely recommend for dinner, just skip dessert.

    The food was AMAZING! My husband was a little disappointed they didn’t have the item he had planned to order (the menu on Open Table was pre-Covid) but he was pleasantly surprised by the Boeuf Burguignon. I had the Beef Wellington and it was amazing (just a heads up, it was $15 more than the menu listed on Open Table). The wait staff was friendly and had wonderful recommendations… the bread pudding was delicious! Parking is a little challenging and is valet only (so make sure to bring some cash to tip valet).
