Rated 4 out of 5 by 98reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by The restaurant setting and service was wonderful. The only issue was that the food was avg. The food look gorgeous but the French toast with cream cheese was very dry and the omelet was bland. I wish the menu was updated on the website, but I see others have complained about the same thing and nothing has been done. I would go back and try other foods. Jul 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by We had a light dinner and drinks. The calamari and sliders were delicious. My manhattan was superb. The restaurant is a converted 1920's home. Jul 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food! Surprised by live music. Wonderful! Apr 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The mushroom ravioli was tender and flavorful; enjoyed the zestiness of the dressing on the spring salad. The tomato basil soup was smooth and creamy. Apr 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful Sunday brunch. Would definitely come again. Sweet little shops to peruse afterwards. We had a great time. Feb 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I'll go back. But we waited 45 minutes for our salad. The bread is $2.50. Otherwise, the ambiance, food, etc. excellent. Then - they gave us 25% off instead of $25.00 as stated in the coupon. That made a big difference. Feb 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very friendly people and nice atmosphere Feb 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Food was generally underseasoned; steak ordered medium rare, came out well done and we had to wait nearly 15-20 mins for another steak. Live music very loud playing 15 feet from our table made it difficult for conversation Jan 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The live music was nice but very loud; the space is so small that it's just not a great venue for live music. But the bigger problem I had was that the portions were so small, especially given the price point. I weigh 100 lbs., spent close to $50 on my portion of the meal (and that was after the $25 gift certificate), and left hungry. Jan 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 Their current menu was very limited and, even so, 2-3 of their best items were sold out or unavailable. Jan 18, 2014
