quick recap of recent trip-- 1- Valet parking---why???? my car is parked 25' from the door, a big turn off to me 2- space---very nice, sleek room with outdoor area as well (no view) 3- drinks -- wine good and reasonable, mixed drinks a little expensive ($11 for a mixed drink is imho way too high for this area) 4- waitress-- friendly , helpful, professional . Front of house - seemed too focused on some and less on others, although friendly 5-- food- good, nothing better. bread to start was warm ,crusty but served with rock hard orange flavored butter . App- salads quite good ; risotto was a little too dry but still tasty. mains - steak special (29$) was overcooked for medium rare but decent, chicken (17$?)- was good but not good enough that i would not try something different if i was to return, side of parmigian fries ( approx 6$) with olive oil was the best part of the meal . In sum-- too pricy in my opinion for the quality of food. some positives but am in no hurry to return given the $, quality of food, and other options in the area
