Always friendly service, had Michelle this time and she was excellent! Always large portions with some to take home for another meal! Always fresh ingredients and perfectly cooked to deliciousness! Manhattens were perfect as well! Wish they had their outside seating open but a 67° day in February is rare. Will be back as often as possible! Great job.

Attended a company Christmas dinner. The service was EXCELLENT, the food and drinks were EXCELLENT, the waiter was EXCELLENT and I want to single him out as extra special, not taking anything away from the chefs or bartenders though.
