    This was our first time at Bookbinders. The restaurant is lovely inside plus they have a very nice outdoor dining area with flowers and a koi pond. The menu has a lot of options. Our seafood was prepared to perfection. The owner greeted us when we arrived. Our waiter provided outstanding service. This may have been the best dining experience we have ever had.

    This place is in a great location and the view is outstanding. The outside eating area has a pond with goldfish in it. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend the place for a upscale dining event to anyone.

    Outstanding on all counts: ambiance, service, cuisine. Would give it more stars if I could. Pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for at this amazing dining establishment! We're already planning several more trips back!

    Coming from new england, I'm a tough critic when it comes to lobster but the surf and turf was amazing. The combination of the fillet with the lobster tail was delicious and both were cooked perfectly.

    The food was very delicious , My steak was cooked exactly as I ordered it, the asparagus was perfect, and the red mashed potatoes were exactly what I needed. The salad was amazing, I could have eaten 2 or 3 of the salads alone. Service was slow, took a prolonged amount of time to get food and when it came it was either wrong food, or came in stages. They brought the wrong food to our table twice, the first time, I was confused what the guy was dropping off, and asked what it was and he said "Your order". I told him it was not our order as it had crab cakes which contains allergens that could seriously harm my wife. The second plate, was also incorrect which was chicken, when I had ordered the 18oz Cowboy Steak. They finally brought out my steak, but it was just the steak, no sides. I asked the waitress she said the rest is coming. They then brought the asparagus. I then had to ask again for the red skin potatoes. When we finished eating the waitress was trying to rush us out I like the atmosphere, the dimmed lights were great. The restaurant was very well maintained. Everything looked clean.
