Rated 5 out of 5 by Great music. Nov 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service could have been more attentive, and could have been more helpful especially in suggesting a substitute for the sold-out lamb.We felt that the meals were really over priced for quality (steak and frites- far from a $33 plate) and portions (scallops -which were very flavorful). The appetizers and salad were exceptional in taste and just the right size though. Perhaps, why it is named "First Course"?Might return to see if the meals improve; after the appetizers and salad we were really expecting great meals. Turned out to be anticlimactic though. We wouldn't return if they were the same. Nov 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, intimate dining experience for the past 14 years. A "secret" gem... Nov 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food very good, ambience wanting Nov 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was very good, however the prices were too high ($20 for Mac and Cheese with a little crab meat on it is crazy). Our server was great, but when the place got busy, we didn't see him for 10-15 minutes after we got water. Nov 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Porkchop was overdone, but my wife's was fine. Caesar salad was tasty, but not a real Caesar salad, more like an Italian salad. Bread was fantastic and the atmosphere was excellent. Nov 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It was busy but not distractingly so. The decor is bright, but not glaring. WE could read the menu without squinting. Our server was there when needed and invisible when not. We spent two hours immersed in great food and wine (chosen by our server) and conversation. A table nearby had a small child who was as into the food as the rest of us - it's that kind of restaurant. What more could a body ask for? Nov 2, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by No water refills until asked. Recommended a wine and then came back to say they were out of it. The food was okay not as good as the last time. The menu choices were not as varied and seemed more standard. For the cost the food was not great compared to other less expensive restaurants. Oct 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by We enjoyed our evening very much but we were disappointed in the change in the menu First course has made. It has slightly less choices but with the changes the prices are significantly higher overall. These changes probably will keep us from coming here as often as we have in past (4-5 times a year).
