A small, cozy dining experience. The food was great. Seemed to have a limited menu but every entree ordered was delectable, well presented. Definitely make a reservation.

Great steaks and specials. Went there with another couple. A little pricey but worth it. Looks rough on the outside but nice on the inside.

We were the first ones there for dinner, we had a reservation. We waited thirty minutes for water and coffee. Another 90 minutes for our food. Second time we've been there, and it's almost impossible to get drink refills.

Excellent food. Recommend a reservation. Well worth the wait. It's like eating at a fine dining restaurant on a small scale (small area).

Excellent food as good as anything you would get at a top notch restaurant in a big city. Such a hidden gem right here at home.

From the outside this small, rather unassuming building belies what a culinary treat awaits inside. This restaurant has a full bar with seating at the bar and several high top tables, as well as a very small, cozy dining room. The menu offers plenty of...More
