A beautiful restaurant and the service was outstanding. The problem is the food is bland and unexciting. Cajun pasta had no real flavour at all. Salad dressings were dull. Tuna tartare appetizer was good. I don't know if it's Midwestern tastes, but I, personally need...More

Wanted to check out this place. It wasn't busy when we stopped by (Sunday). The staff was friendly. They have a nice selection of cocktails and beer. The food was tasty, good portions, and not too pricey. Highly recommend this place.
