We had a terrific table and the food was terrific. Of particular note that evening was the service. I really appreciated the warm greeting at the host stand and our server who took care of us so graciously throughout the evening. Love that there is "open to the outdoors dining."

We had a fantastic meal here, celebrating a graduation. Our server gave great advice about good dishes to order and the number to get, and everything was delicious. The salmon poke, halibut, and hazelnut praline sundae were all out of this world!

I went for the duck three course menu, and it was delightful. It featured various combinations of duck and strawberries, and each one was great and interesting. The salad was a nice start, the pizza was sweet and savory, and the foie gras dessert was absolutely delicious.

Food and drinks were great as always. A bit disappointed in service this time, especially since my boyfriend and I were seated right next to the bar and it was taking 20+ minutes each round to have our drinks brought out. $300+ meal and we felt forgotten.
