I'm originally from the midwest, and I like to take my family here when they're in town because they can only handle so much "california cuisine" (my dad needs his red meat!). They have great fish & chips and the shepherd's pie is

My husband and I found this delightful restaurant/bar while on a walk down Polk Street. When we first walked past, we snuck a peek inside and thought it was interesting. On our way back through, we decided to stop in for a drink.

This is a favorite - the kind of place where you want the staff to know your name. We love dropping by just for a beer/glass of wine and an appetizer at the bar or for a nice dinner out. It is a perfect mix between classy elegance and

I had a few appetizers here at the bar. Bad service, I had to return a beer that tasted very strange. The food tasted from ok to very bad. Too bad, the band was great.

I have been there twice in the last 2 weeks and both times the experience was fabulous. I was there as well for NYE and the prix fixe was a great deal and the food excellent! I have to say our waiter, same guy both times (from Croatia)

This place is truly an experience - walk in and you feel as though you've entered a 19th century European mansion. High ceilings, stained glass, fire place... service is unmatched, everyone in here is having a good time. My friend and I

Pros: Great food, Beautiful, Lovely people

We sat down for dinner at 9:00. Right after the appetizer course, the wait staff began clearing away the dining tables surrounding us and a band started to set up. By the time our meals arrived, our table was like an island in the middle

An old favorite is now a new one. We took our family to Mayes, and discovered Mayes has morphed into O'Reilly's.

It's different, and better than the old. Love the new ambiance/decor (lighter, airy), food is a great mix of fabulous

The dining room is absolutely beautiful, but the overall experience was a let down. Our server was not attentive - we rarely saw him, wine glasses were allowed to sit empty for a long period (our bottle was elsewhere as our table was too
