Went last evening to celebrate anniversary. Table was ready on time, even though the restaurant was busy. Hostess very pleasant, and helpful. Waitstaff (Katie, from Georgia) was very nice. The sheer number of waiters, servers, bus boys, etc. in the dining room became dizzying after a while, though. As to the food, the Risotto with shrimp was very tasty, even though the portion was not large at all. The duck entree was prepared to perfection, and the portion size was plentiful. The skirt steak, however, was a disappointment; the entire dish was simply overpowered, and later watered down, by the broth that is applied. All in all, a very nice time but we expected a little more from Chef Tom.

I guess it's all a matter of opinion. We popped in on a Friday night well past 10pm and were greeted by two very friendly hostesses who took our coats. One proceeded to offer of the choice of eating in the "Tap Room" or more formal dining room. We opted for the tap room as it seemed cozy enough and had nice large windows. Our waiter, Andres, was fabulous. We had the pear, endive, ham salad- it was probably the best salad I have ever had. We also had the skirt steak, which was grass fed and perfectly cooked with some diced potatoes. The wine list was extensive and the two we chose were perfect. What a nice time and a nice place. No one was pretentious or snooty, in fact, friendliness and great service was all we recieved. As I told the manager, we'll be back for more!

Went on the Saturday before Valentine's Day. Service was friendly and extremely knowledgable. Food was excellent. Well worth the money.
