    Great drinks (negroni) and delicious food. Came for happy hour oysters, lingered over cocktails, stayed for dinner. Steak was perfectly cooked. Beet salad delicious. Very nice and competent service. Not cheap but good value for the excellent quality.

    Our meal was excellent, as per usual. We were celebrating my birthday and our waiter made it extra special. Even though I told him I couldn’t possibly eat another bite when he told me he was going to bring me a free dessert, he still brought us a plate of two bite-sized pieces of cake with Happy Birthday written on the plate. It was perfect and so thoughtful. Thank you!

    I took a friend whose birthday it was. We had a nice table and our waitress was most pleasant. The truffles and candles were a big hit. My friend who claims expertise on burgers said this one was one of the best ever. Being celiac, I stick with the small filet mignon and shoestring frites which are consistently delightful

    Very underwhelming. Heavy use of salt, bland taste, poor presentation on the steak, deep fried was heavy on the batter , less on taste. We were disappointed and dissatisfied and felt like we had really made a mistake for our date night supper. Live and learn. We will not be customers again. Saying that the service was great and my halibut was ok, again not worth the almost $50.

    Service was outstanding from Bob and Emily, appetizers were delicious, but mains were huge disappointment. As a seafood restaurant, you would expect them to know how to cook fish, but the halibut was dry and overcooked. Sent it back and second try was better but not to standards expected of a high end restaurant. Mushroom risotto was bland and some pieces undercooked. Plate presentation was lacking and did not excite the diner when placed on the table. Wine list extensive with good quality wines.
