    Outstanding Sunday Brunch

    The Sunday Brunch here is similar to Rainbow Room and Water Grill with carving stations and a huge selection to choose from, but with a much better price tag of only $30. Seven of my girlfriends and I went for a Sunday Brunch Clb Brunch and after several bad experiences at other places (b/c we are a large group of young "looking" women), we were so impressed at the star treatment we got at 8 1/2. We began at 11:30 and were sitting at our table till about 4:30. It was such a nice atmosphere and I will highly recommend Sunday Brunch here to others.

    Perhaps we hit a bad night?

    Chritstmas night is probably not a fair tine to judge. BUT, service was haphazard, my frisee salad came minus dressing, wine orders were mixed up and my pheasant entree had been coated in salt. The second one served (although I wasn't asked if I'd like something else, our waitress simply removed the dish, apologized and returned later with a duplicate). The pheasant also cries out for a fruity accompaniement that it doesn't receive. It's not like this fairly lousy experience comes cheap, either. Would I give it another try? Maybe but not with high expectations.

    This far exceeded my expectations. The food was outstanding, the service was outstanding....all around great experience. Our waiter was fabulous. Patient, thorough, funny, honest....he rocks! We ended up staying for about 5 hours because we were having such a good time. I will definitely be back.

    Prix Fixe Menu

    I had eaten here several years ago for lunch. Based on my past experience I wanted to return. My friend and I each had a selection from the prix fixe menu and I certainly didn't recall the portions to be so tiny. Neither of us are big eaters, but we ended up sharing an extra appetizer because we were still hungry. I really do like this restaurant as the food is very good, but, after looking around at other people's ample portions, we realized that ordering from the prix fixe was not a good idea. So stick to the regular menu and you'll be very happy

    Loved it!

    My girlfriend and I stopped by after a dinner function at the Ritz Carlton for dessert. We had the mini cupcakes and eclairs and also the three cheese selection, which was delicious! The atmosphere was very elegant, the cheeses phenomenal, with figs, honeysuckle, berries, and toast points. The cupcakes were moist and not too sweet. We plan to go back. Moderately priced as well. Their tea is fabulous as well!

    Good, but dissapointing...

    A few of my friends and I went last week as part of restaurant week and I must say I was rather dissapoitned following all the rave reviews I'd heard. Restaurant week portions are generally small but I found some of the dishes in particular (i.e. the Bass) to be snack-sized at best. Also, the food, while good, was unspectacular and there are plenty of places with better food and certainly more reasonable prices. In short, good service, above average food, but a poor value for what you get.
