Rated 3 out of 5 by Food was very mixed. Pasta was very overlooked and mashed together, sauce on ravioli was so salty it was hard to eat, Reuben had a very funny taste to it although the fries with it were good. Apr 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The $23.95 fish was either bad or overcooked--needed a knife to cut it and couldn't chew it. But it was taken off the bill. Apr 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Atmosphere was cozy, service was prompt, food was exceptional and so flavorful. Server knew which wine to recommend as well as dessert when we told him our preferences. Had an amazing experience with cuisine and helped to have 1/2 price wine night! Will certainly be back. Mar 26, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good food, nice presentation, decent service, value lower than expected. Nice pleasant music, romantic. Ordered the mushroom soup, $6.95 for a "bowl". Was big sized bowl but had exactly 6 spoonfuls of soup in it, almost did not cover the bottom. I shutter to think what the "cup" quantity would be! Celebrated a 75 birthday , no offer extra for that like most places would of this price range. Expensive for what you get. Mar 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but lively spot. Great ambiance and excellent food! Mar 23, 2014
