Love this beautiful restaurant. Even with a slight drizzle of rain they were able to seat us outside under generously large umbrellas. With a 3 1/2 year old and a 1 1/2 year old with us, the staff did a great job of getting kids food fast and pacing us "so-called adults" nicely.  The food was delicious. I especially enjoyed a halibut ... read more

The outdoor patio is great with a lively atmosphere and great drinks. The food has been mediocre in my opinion though - Ive had the avocado burger and the fish and chips on two different occasions and didn't feel like I couldn't make this at home. However this is a fun spot to sit outside in the summer!

This was my first experience with piedmontese beef and it was a good one. My huge ribeye was perfectly charred on the outside and medium rare on the inside. For an appetizer, we tried the special which was an innovative dish of filet & risotto stuffed grape leaves. It was bursting with flavor. We will be back.

Go for the steak - the rest is standard pub fare
The grass fed steaks are pricey, but worth it. Everything else is good too, but nothing super special. The steaks will be one of the best you've had. On one occasion we did have a food issue (these things happen), but it was dealt with appropriately by the wait staff and we have not had a problem since.
