We've eaten here many times both as a couple and as a family. Yesterday's lunch was very good and we had a wonderful server! My husband had a burger which he enjoyed. His only complaint was that it was quite big. I had the pear and beet salad and added grilled shrimp. It was absolutely delicious! One of their "smaller... More

Not only is the food very good, but the view while dining is superb. They were willing to modify an order to accommodate one of our party. The food is fresh and beautifully presented. I would be happy to eat there again.

Came here with friends. Nicely laid out restaurant with a trendy bar. Starters of steak wrapped in bacon was amazing. It was after that, it all went wrong! Firstly the waiter bought me the wrong main course, failed to clear away the starters before delivering the main course. Then looked at me as if to say, you need to remove... More

We liked the food and service very much but the decor is like something out of an Austin Powers movie. Looked like a throw back to the 1960's

Trendy restaurant which is in a shopping center. We had wings with blue cheese and ranch sauce and an orange sriracha sauce which were very good. The party nachos were very good. The hamburger was average and a bit overcooked, medium not rare to medium. The drinks were fine. The price was excellent.

We had dinner on Friday night and liked it so much we went back for lunch on Saturday! The homemade chips are amazing (and I don't like chips). The desserts can't be missed too many to suggest. Great for a date or the family and conveniently located near the movie theater!

Really good food, reasonable price. I had the steak with herb noodles. The steak was a little bland but cooked to perfection and the herb noodles and vegetables was excellent. My boyfriend had the french dip steak sandwich. It was excellent. Nice atmosphere also. Will definitely go again.

We visited on a Tuesday evening and happened to arrive between 5 and 7 pm which was happy hour! Great $5 martinis and app choices. We enjoyed the calamari which was so tender and flavorful but one guest in our party did not like the red pepper flakes on the calamari which made it too spicy for her. Portions on... More
