One word... delicious. After 3 visits and each one being amazing, I can say without doubt that you won't be disappointed. Even if you're scared of the fancy stuff, the hamburger is a life changing event.

Went here for my wife’s birthday. We were with one other couple. Made 7pm reservations, got there early and had some good cocktails at the bar. We were sat right at 7. Good service and the prime rib, burger, brussels, Salad, wine,etc were all delicious. The only issue for the night was that at 8:30 our waitress said we needed to go the bar to make room for other people with reservations. We had spent over $250 for the night and had full drinks so it just seemed rude. Totally different if they were just running behind and offered us a drink or something to move to the bar but to just basically say, “Times up” was awkward.

I will start by saying we'll definitely be back for the amazing cocktails, French fries, and probably to try dessert. The restaurant is very small so most of the tables are in aisles which is not very comfortable, in my opinion. We decided to sit at the bar instead. If this bothers you definitely make a reservation and ask to be by the window or in the front corner. We ordered old fashioneds and they were really well made. The bartender was at least as attentive as having a server at our own table, or more. Everyone talks about their burger so I had to order it - I found the English muffin bun dense and overwhelming and the burger was just ok. I will say it was perfectly cooked tho! Just overhyped, I think. The fries and their dipping sauce was delicious and made up for the burger for sure.
