Quality food in generous portions draws diners to this upscale American bistro.. The Scene
Despite the haute cuisine, the atmosphere is entirely casual and fills with friendly chatter every night. A lovely patio offers refuge from the bustling scene, providing the perfect outdoor dining spot. Heaters warm diners in the winter, and in the spring people soak up the pleasant evenings before summer heat hits the city.
The restaurant's name comes from the wood-burning ovens that yield its pizzas and desserts. The Thai chicken pasta has a wonderful spicy peanut sauce dressing heaps of linguine (made fresh in-house.) The crisp crusted pizzas come in a handful of varieties ranging from the delicious barbecue chicken to the shrimp and mesquite smoked bacon. Don't overlook scrumptious side dishes like the scalloped potatoes with smoked Gouda and peppers. The quantity is as generous as the quality, an unexpected treat in a restaurant of this stature.
Food.. Okay, Service...needs HELP.
Our Group: Eight people - 4 couples - group visits upscale restaurants once a month
Greeter - someone who gave us a "why are you bothering me attitude", very insincere
Server - either new or just a very poor server. We had to wait long periods of time between ordering, had to ask for refills on bread/water; our drink order was either partially delivered or wrong. When we got our bills ( we asked for separate checks from the start, were told "no problem" ) everyone's bill was wrong - - mixed items, undercharges, overcharges, items not ordered - took 3 attempts to get the bills correct
Food - Very good food, nice presentation, excellent flavor combinations, desserts good as well. They did run out of bread and one of the ordered deserts -
Based on service and service staff attitude and consistency - I would not recommend the restaurant.
