The service was incredible from the start followed by some amazing season drinks. For food we decided to do a few small plates and one appetizer. The pretzel was MASSIVE and nothing short of incredib ... read more

We had a lovely dinner with a party of 12. Our server Sam was great. James and Megan went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND to get a special drink for a member of our party. Highly recommend.

Great service. Didn't like how the salmon was prepared- seemed to have sat for a while. New dish- swordfish- replaced within 4 minutes and a free glass of wine. Swordfish was delicious. The wedge salad was perfect and the church's with berries were yummy. Definitely returning.

Had the braised rib with gorgonzola mashed potatoes. So many places over-do strong cheeses like gorgonzola and blue cheese, but their potatoes were incredible and balanced just right.
