Excellent food and wonderful service by Erin. This was the best food we had all week. Plan to eat here and they take reservations. Grouper was amazing with saffron risotto. I highly recommend this restaurant for a date night.

As always, our expectations were exceeded! We enjoyed a wonderful meal and fabulous service from our favorite place to visit with out of town guests. They had only great things to say about our apps, meal and drinks. Martina was a fabulous server and VERY knowledgeable about their offerings. Mallory at the bar was a delight to chat with while enjoying pre-dinner drinks. We thank you for always impressing us and our guests.

Enjoyed the lobster and crab macaroni and cheese last night , easily the best dish I've had all year! We love how the wine list changes every season, it's refreshing to try new things! There was a special Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake that really knocked our socks off!

Visited the bar for a bar food dinner. Went early because the website seemed to I indicate that during the happy hour, 3 - 6pm it is crowded. Although they did have a couple of tables reserved for later, we were the only ones there for quite a while.

In the bar you can order off the bar menu till 6 or you can order from the dining room menu. The dining room opens at 5 I believe.

After a couple of wines we ordered the duck wings to start. They were piping hot with a blue cheese type of sauce on the side. They looked like small chicken drumsticks and were prepared with bbq sauce on them. Never having had duck wings before I didn't know what to expect. They were just ok in my opinion, but again, I have nothing to compare them to.

After the wings my husband ordered the gouda burger medium rare. I ordered the three onion soup and made a point to ask that it be served hot.

The burger had an impressive presentation in that it had a knife in it with three huge onion rings stacked in the knife. The onion rings were very sweet. The burger was served medium, not medium rare, however my husband said it was tasty.

My onion soup was served with steam coming off it, however, as what often happens, it was the melted cheese that was steaming. The soup below the cheese and croutons was luke warm. It was also very watery and tasteless. The broth had no depth of flavor and not many onions. It was really not good in addition to being a very small serving for $9.

These issues would have been pointed out to the server (novi?), had he bothered to return in a reasonable time after he served us.

When he finally did return he asked how we liked our meal. I said it was "So so". He said "you didn't like that?" with the most expression I had seen from him all night. I explained that the soup was not. He told me that that couldn't be possible since they were made to order. I responded that since he had asked I answered. If the soup was made for each order, as he so vehemently asserted, that might explain the weak flavored broth since proper carmelization of onions to bring out their depth of flavor is a slow process.

Enough said. There are other restaurants to visit, no need to return to this one.
