We just had thanksgiving dinner and even though it was good it was not up to the high standards as previously when it was truly a 5 star restaurant. I know it changed hands recently and maybe their goals have changed. Before there was a...More

I'm rating this as average although they go to great effort to make it super-swanky for one reason--too expensive for what you are getting. They do it up very lavish, including three dessert courses, and it was all very attentive and the service was great,...More

Sometimes you just want to be spoiled. Exquisite French cuisine served by attentive individual servers directed by professional waiters. For that special occasion with rustic ambience with "Black Hat" level food, go to the White Barn. Hint... Go off peak nights for the best experience

This is the best fine dining restaurant that we have eaten in for several years. That;s really saying something because we dine out often and patronize a faire amount of high-end places. The service staff in formal dress, the venue itself and the food and...More
