Was a little warm in the restaurant , need better air or turn on A/C

The food was superb! Very good...though a little on the pricey side but VERY good. The "waiters" are all owners, i.e. the owners serve their customers to give that personal attention, which is very different from other restaurants.

It's not a place quite suitable for kids, but my girls (3 and 5) both loved it. We shared all the dishes (4 adults, 2 kids). Not only did they NOT charge us split plate fees, they gave each of us adults a steak knife, so we can all cut into the lamb and the filet mignon. That's good and thoughtful service!

Petite filet, crab cakes, ribs

Main dishes were tasty but side dishes not so much. The corn bread was tasteless. The risotto dish with the filet mignon tasted like the ocean, and not in a good way. Felt the meals should have been of a higher quality considering the cost.

Food was very good.

Expensive add-ons, long wait for entrees, mediocre service.

The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the calamari and wood roasted shrimp for starters, the lamb and baby back ribs for entrees, and the hot lava cake and bread pudding for dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The service was fantastic; the owner was our waiter and he enjoys waiting on tables to get to know his customers-fantastic! The cocktails were even great! We eat out quite a bit and this was the first restaurant that we've enjoyed in months!! We will be returning!

Wonderful e restaurant!!
