Food was really good, service was terrible. Non energetic, somewhat rude when my girlfriend asked about the menu, cracked about a backside joke in bad taste... one server was rude, when he came back to fill up my water glass..felt like I was at a low end fast food joint type service.

We still come back because I know the food and overall service most days is fantastic. Whoever the staff were working upstairs close to the private dinning room should work on their servicing skills as a start..

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day. The overall experience was okay. The place had a relaxing atmosphere. The food was good but nothing special. We had the truffle fries and caesar salad for appetizer, butter chicken and quinoa with mushroom and other veggies for mains, and biscotti with cappuccino for dessert. The menu had very limited choices. Ask the servers for other options since not everything is disclosed in the menu.

Loved the food, wine and service. Food arrived quickly and was almost perfect. Wine selection is amazing but a little pricey. Staff are very attentive and their recommendations on the wines are excellent. Great ambience for a dinner date.

Four of us went out to celebrate a birthday followed by a night at the Opera. We arrived early for some casual conversation and wine. We just ordered a variety of appetizers for meal and shared everything among the 4 of us. Every small plate we ordered was just as delicious as the previous one. We will definitely be returning to try other items on their menu as well as sample different wines!

We expected more from the place. Food was good but not perfect (steaks). For Friday night we thought would be more ambiance and crowded. By 12 already dead. Service was great but we wanted more since we saw it from outside the first time

We requested a quiet table for the business meeting and our request was met. Sometimes this doesn't happen at other restaurants and we appreciated the care taken in choosing the table at a busy lunch time.

Had a stake that I ordered medium rare and it came medium well. Not worth the effort to send it back as I didn't have time to wait for another one.

The check-in was crowded and had to wait 5 min just to ask at what table were my colleagues sited.

Went for New Year's Eve dinner reserved our table for 8:15pm showed up at 7:45pm and seated right away. The reastuant was not busy at all and all the staff was In a great mood. Our server gracy grace was fantastic helpful with the menu and very attentitive. The food came out quickly and was cooked perfectly. There was 4 of us and only one compliant the vegan options are very lacking they need to add a few things to the menu for the up coming vegan and dairy free gluten free crowds.

We were over charged for our meals and when we spoke to a manager they only took off $3 not the full $10 difference, our drinks sat empty for at least 15 minutes and we were rushed out after our meal.

The food was good and hot and the pre-fix menu was a good value.

I had dinner with my sisters on a Saturday evening. It was a very nice atmosphere, not too loud. Food was great and our server was friendly and happy to answer all of our questions - even though he seemed slightly unfamiliar with the menu at times, he was able to find the answers for us. It was nice to have the prix fixe menu in addition to the regular offerings (our group ordered off of both). The food was all very tasty and nice portion sizes.
