I really liked the atmosphere, including the jazz music. Our drinks were very good,the appetizers were filling; the salads were good; the scallops and risotto were excellent; good sized portions and priced as expected. The service was outstanding. My only disappointment was that no one recognized our wedding anniversary even though we indicated that with our online reservation. I wish other patrons had dressed up more. We were wearing business casual but others were not. Ball caps, cargo shorts and flip flops are inappropriate attire for such a nice restaurant. Overall, we liked it and we will be back.

Our waiter, Caleb, did a very good job. Food was excellent but perhaps a bit overpriced for the area. Were there for our 56th anniversary so my wife received a couple of roses and we received a card signed by the staff, a very nice touch. Would recommend it to our friends if you want to have a very special night out. This was our 2nd or 3rd visit so will definitely be there again, however it is limited to special occasions.

Our waitress Kaylee was great! Food got a 7/10 because the scallop dish was listed as “jumbo scallops” and when they came out they were very very small. The crab cakes tasted mostly of peppers and were soft without a crisp/pan fried outside. My friend ordered asparagus as her side and did not receive it until she was almost finished with her chicken breast. All the appetizers were good, as well as salads and dressings. Love the bread with oil and seasoning. Great bourbon selection! We would go back again, I would just try something different on the menu.

We had a party of five, seated and served quickly. Two of five entrees were delicious, but three orders of crab cakes which were only slightly warm we’re not. They were soggy and contain lots of breading—-a real disappointment and expense for a very special day for our party. Our waiter was excellent, very attentive and friendly.

Great service and atmosphere. The food was ok but not great for the price. Brussels sprouts were very undercooked and difficult to chew. Salmon was just a tiny bit undercooked but not bad. Note this is a new but experienced cook and may still be adjusting to the menu. We just felt the quality of the food wasn’t worth the price. We will try again and hope that this experience isn’t the norm.

Upon entering the building, there was a stench of sewer drains? This was not appealing at all. I typically not a complainer but taste and smell are intertwined. As good as the food appeared and our server was excellent, I can't leave an untarnished review.

Food & drinks were excellent!!! The service was very slow due to being short staffed. Will definitely go again!

When I made reservations I was asked if we were celebrating an occasion and I told them my wife's birthday. She was not even wished a happy birthday.

service was not the best ! food came out before the salads, didnt check if we wanted more drinks during the meal. The food was GREAT but the server didnt seem like she could care less. Chris, at the front of the store was soo very nice and made the evening much better !!! this is the second time there and both times service was not up to par !!!
