Food was a combination of excellent (bacon wrapped artichokes, grilled veggies, and veal picatta), average (salmon picatta) and... tasteless (chicken wild rice soup). I think we had a new server--had to remind them to bring my soup after my main coursearrived and they put in and brought the wrong meal for my husband. He ate it anyway rather than waste it and wait for a remake.Kind of expected the manager to come by after that but that didn't happen. Overall, the experience was less than expected. Read more

My expectations may have been too high. Everyone told me about your great reputation. The prices on most of the entrees made me... think I was going to be getting the best meal ever. Read more

I don’t recommend this place. Waited for over 30 minutes after being seated. Wasn’t even busy. Once someone noticed we had... been sitting for awhile they said it was because they forgot to put us on the list. We had several waitresses walk past us andnot say a word. After 30 minutes you should notice when someone has been waiting. Then once we were done eating we were overcharged. The menu says pasta Alfredo is $13. To add shrimp it’s $3. Easy math…that’s $16 a plate. Nope, they charged us$25 each plate and said it’s $13 for the pasta Alfredo but $5 for each shrimp? So they gave us the cheaper option by giving usjust shrimp Alfredo. And it’s only $25. What?? For $25 we could of easily made this at home. Nothing special about this placethat would make us want to come back. Horrible service. Thanks for ruining our night!!

The atmosphere was casual and inviting. The varied menu made it hard to choose which meal to try. The Chicken and artichoke was... fabulous, reasonable...made you want to lick the plate! Dessert of Peach Berry Crisp was the perfect finish. Hardworking staffduring trying times is to be commended. Bravo! Read more

This is the only sit-down restaurant we've visited during the pandemic so far. My daughter and I visited during a Thursday night... Packers game in early November and felt very safe inside. The food was wonderful, staff was friendly, and tables were safelydistanced. Portions and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed the meatball Caesar salad and gnocchi with a glass of wine and aShirley Temple. Definitely recommend. Read more

2nd visit. It was a quite night, the staff informed us that was due to ”spring break”. This restaurant has a warm, fun... atmosphere. We were given a “tour” of the two main floor dining rooms and learned about the history of the building andWausau itself buy the pictures hanging on the walls. The staff was attentive. Extensive wine list, bartender gave a quicklesson of Gins (differences between London dry and botanical) to one of our guests. With spring around the corner, I enjoyed thezucchini pasta. Read more
