    I had the Shrimp Linguine. It was good, though I was jealous of the spicy crab spaghetti someone else ordered.

    Don't come here if you have a car inferiority complex as the parking lot is full of Mercedes, BMWs and other swaggy cars. But if this doesn't bother you, nice food and great service!

    the Harvest Grain salad will haunt your dreams and perhaps even convince you to write to Bon Appetit magazine, begging them to find the recipe for you.

    Enjoyed a fantastic meal with my boss and 2 collegues. I was referred to this place by a fellow foodie named Scotty. Scotty, is a waiter here and took good care of us.

    Attempted a 2nd experience. Burnt pork chops ordered medium. Mistakes happen, it's the recovery that concerns. Never an apology. A simple "I know your expectations were not met sorry." it was comped.

    Really? Bartender told me the risotto is made with cream. Is this Olive Garden or a place attempting to be a classy Italian spot? Learn how to make the basics. Tenderloin crustini was great. Entree ok
