We were concerned when the restaurant did not have many patrons. Then any concerns evaporated with the excellent service and the fantastic food by all members of the family.

The food at 1875 was much better and had larger portions. The portions at Sinclair were very small. We tried the lobster bisque and it was delicious. The french chicken was good.

The service was good. The restaurant was quiet. We thought the food was a little pricey. The fish was good. The pasta was OK. The creme brulee with lemon was very good.

High-end restaurant, with prices to show for it. The Black and Blue Bison steak was very well prepared. Service was excellent too. But they need help with their wine list/selection.
