    Jules was a phenomenal server and food preparer. He answered all of my many questions in a professional manner, yet still managed to be very personable and easy going adding to the overall experience. My friends and I have already planned to come back and request him by name. He was a delight.
    Dajiah was fantastic! She was extremely friendly and helpful. She also gave us free cheesecake and champagne for our anniversary - which is a lovely extra touch.
    Our server seemed to be new or rushed. Our cheese did not have all the ingredients added as listed on the menu. The cooking style was also incomplete. We ordered Co Co ven and the wine and onions were added after we questioned the server and after we had started the main course. On several occasions our drinks were empty and had to request refills. Brandon was very polite and apologetic during our meal. He new the items and cooking times but had the previously listep issues.
    The menu us a little overwhelming, but we had been before so were able to sort it out. IT is always a struggle to NOT over order so as not to leave stuffed or worse yet, not have room for chocolate fondue.
    The price of the salads for what was provided was over the top. Otherwise the value of the cheese and chocolate fondue was reasonable.
    For this visit no improvements is necessary. Server was great and food courses came out in a timely fashion
    Salads came a bit too fast, and overall the service was not the standard that we have been used to in previous visits (drinks sat for a long while without being refilled, server never offered to close the drapes, and the music was a bit too loud and inappropriate for the type of ambiance you are trying to create). This is all compared to previous visits at this same location, so I was a little underwhelmed at the experience. Also, in previous visits, when making a reservation there were options for special occasions and add-ons...this was not present, at least in the online reservation system.
    Nothing could have been improved. Great server, great food!
    Caitlin was an excellent server - very friendly, had great recommendations and had each course timed just perfectly. I would definitely ask for her again on my next visit. Your bartender (don't remember her name) is always friendly and makes an awesome drink!
    Our server was amazing. He was friendly, attentive without being overbearing, he made sure our glasses were always full, he was great with explaining the process and recommended menu items and explained options. We couldn't have asked for a better, friendlier, or more attentive waiter. He was truly fantastic.
