Overall, my family (7) had a very enjoyable night out - everyone else loved their entrees, it was a pretty quiet venue, conversation was great - though I had some serious issues. We went on a Thursday night recently, and we were pretty much the only diners there. \r
The server didn't know the French side of the wine list well. Considering it was half the list, this was a disappointment. She could only recommend one Bordeaux (""a lot of people order this one""), and she pushed us into a more expensive Cote du Rhone despite asking for less expensive alternatives. She didn't have a suggestion for a ""medium bodied, fruit-forward, dry red"". Oh well. \r
The duck breast was medium-to-well, despite our insistence that it be ""medium-rare"". It should never leave the kitchen like that. Next time order it ""rare."" They did much better on the traditional Midwest fare - beef tenderloin was juicy with a nice crust, the lamb was perfectly cooked. The salmon was pretty standard for any restraint (it could have been easily done at home), so the >$20 price was shocking.
Pros: bar is really nice, menu had several things for everybody, appetizers and salads were tasty
Cons: a bit overpriced, one dish over cooked, poor service (inattentive, uninformed, slow, didn't want to be there at night)
