Simply amazing. I had heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and then I decided to try it out. wow! the tuna tartare is one of the best that i’ve had in a while. topped with avocado, it was great. my girlfriend had the lobster and corn soup. I wasn’t a big fan but the flavors were good. for entree I had the venison and it was out of this world. the service was great but there were alot of children in the dinning room and that took away from the ambiance. if not for the kids I would have given it 5 stars.

Contemporary American Goodness

Maybe it’s due to the fact that I had gone to the restaurant with a friend on a Monday evening. Service was prompt and fantastic. The server was always at hand to refill our glasses, take away dirty plates, and answer any questions.

The cocktails were wonderful; not too strong, and not too weak. I had the bellini. The appetizer was also wonderful. Although the oysters were small, they were fresh and flavorful. I also thoroughly enjoyed the fries and truffle sauce. Yummy.

My friend had halibut, which was tender and light. And I had the pork, medium rare and perfectly crusted. It was hearty and juicy and delicious. The dessert, creme brulee, was not so impressive. I found it to be too heavy.

Everything else was superb though.

Outstanding food coupled with a great ambiance

Wonderfully delicious food, very friendly wait staff. Everything we had here was absolutely divine. The only thing I would skip next time is dessert as it left something to be desired after such wonderful appetizers and entrees. Be sure to…
