    The chocolate peanut butter milkshake with bourbon = to die.

    The prix fixe brunch is a really good deal but it's a lot of food. Go HUNGRY. The pretzel crusted crab cake and steak and eggs are two of the best items on the menu.

    Go for lunch. They usually have a price fixed menu that is reasonable. Pretzel crusted crab cake was outstanding!!

    Best meal ever! The Lobster Steak is a must!!

    Wow! Sunday Prix Fixe Menu is a steal at $35 for x3 courses (and at normal menu portions)! Drink deals too!

    Really great tasting food, really horrible service. Staff took forever to initially come over and we waited forever in between courses. Staff completely avoids eye contact.

    Their wait staff is pretty aggressive. Not even 5 minutes after we sat down 3 different people had come over and asked to take our drink order. Prix fixe brunch is pretty good though.

    Amazing popover bread served in mini copper pots, a very nice touch!

    A gourmet 3 course prix fixe fit for a king, with appetizers ranging from lobster and blue hubbard squash bisque to a signature David Burke Pastrami “SalmonReuben with a traditional roasted turkey.

    Try the Peanut Butter Brittle Dessert

    The Cheesecake Lollipop Tree, with a raspberry bubble-gum whipped cream dip, is refreshing and light, as well as an example of the chef's humor and playful attitude towards food. Read more

    The cheesecake lollipop tree looks good in theory, but I have yet to see anyone finish more than one pop. Don't order this unless you have a group of 6 to split it.

  • Hannah J.

    The braised short ribs with homemade cavatelli with mushrooms was so unbelievably delicious. The ribeye and bone marrow mashed potatoes that my boyfriend had was also mouthwatering.

    Hannah Jones · September 9, 2012
  • Christopher T.

    Start with the pastrami salmon appetizer, and order the Prime Dry Aged Ribeye for your entree. This steak is no joke, get it medium rare - it's fatty and juicy! Best meal ever!

  • Halstead Property

    This place has its herbal menu items covered; Rosemary bread is a must try, and the Sage ice cream is more than surprisingly delicious (even if you typically arent a fan of these types of ingredients)

    Halstead Property · November 1, 2011
  • Matt M.

    No matter what you have as your main course, make sure to start with the parfait of tuna and salmon tartare.

    If you are in the area drop in for their prix fixe lunch menu. Love the vegitable scramble appetizer. It comes in an ostrich egg and is beyond delicious!
