    Appetizers were awesome. Definitely try the escargot. Unfortunately, the main course was underwhelming. My steak was cooked slightly over done.

    Made a reservation, waited 45 mins to be seated. This isn’t their first Valentine’s rodeo, the restaurant should’ve know better to allot more time per party than your usual dinner reservation. Food was okay.

    The food is delicious! But the service is horrible. To be clear, our waitress was polite and professional. But the kitchen was so slow. We sat for 100 min until our entrees were served. I would strongly urge everyone NOT to come to this place during Valentine's Day since they are way overbooked and the management is a disaster.

    The food and wine was excellent, our waiter made some great suggestions for wine pairings too. I really enjoyed my time here. It can get a little bit loud, but that's to be expected for a smaller venue. I was still able to chat with my friends no issue though.
