American | Rochester, Western New York

Very pleased with the service and the knowledge of the staff. Staff was able to recognize an issue with our wine choice for dinner and rectified it without asking. It was nice to see staff interact very well with each other...from the bar to the dinning room. This is important because "you are on a stage" when people are watching "how you perform." Thank You for making my husbands Birthday dinner a pleasant one. He made sure he told each staff he encountered, that we will be returning. More

Fondue | Rochester, Western New York

Greatly enjoyed our dinner with son and daughter-in-law. The manager visited with us and gave us (on him) some Riesling as we waited for another bottle of wine to chill. Our server, Dino, did a great job in keeping us well supplied with food and pleasant conversation. The place was fairly full but the booth we were in helped keep the noise level down so that we could easily hear one another. More

Food was great, service was outstanding .... when we arrived I told her we had an open table reservation and she dismissed me outright and said “we don’t have any of those” .... it didn’t matter in this case but I could have done without the dismissiveness .... overall though the menu was great and so was everything else so why is it so empty???
