    The prix fixe menu is the way to go. Everything on the menu was enticing and every dish in our 5-course meal was delicious. Great service.

    My jaw is still on the floor from that cheese cart. Select the tasting menu, sit back, and let Chef Gary Danko pamper your palette for an evening.

    Delicious food, with a special tip of the hat for the superbly fresh caviar and scrumptious quail. The service, however, is overbearing and gets in the way of one's enjoyment.

    Great food and excellent service--nice for a special occasion. However, the space is a bit out dated and pretentious. None of the dishes were really that memorable

    Cannot make risotto. Shrimp were good. Again, how can you be a good restaurant that cannot make risotto?

    What can I say? The food is spectacular. The crispy egg appetizer and Filet of beef were phenomenal. What really capped it off was our knowledgeable, friendly and professional staff.

    The place is small and cozy. We had the five course and left extremely full. The dishes were excellent but the service was one of a kind. Chef Danko really likes to please his guests for sure!

    The butter cake is the BEST. And I have had Maestros and this is better. Great service in the private chef's room. Great champagne and wine choices. And the cheese was superb.

    Awesome experience from start to finish. The 3, 4, 5 course menu gives you flexibility to mix and match (you could do five course dessert). Try their lobster and fillet, you won't be disappointed!
