The new menu leaves off several favorites and now looks much more like a bar menu. Not sure if it will work out for them, but it has soured us a bit. A year ago they had a great chef. Since then it seems like...More

We started with what sounded like a good idea -- Utica Greens. Our advice: don't get an Italian dish at an Irish restaurant. The dish was swimming in water from the greens and there was no "hot" to the dish at all. We only picked...More
