Thanks for a great night out.  We had a blast.

My steak was perfect.

You are our favorite.  Hands down.

I think the gelato is my new favorite dessert.

This Walley was amazing.  I usually don't eat fish out because it's usually overcooked, but this was perfect.

Can I still get a reservation for New Year's?

Nicely done, on everything.

I mean, everything was good, but this was amazing.

I'm so happy you're here for lunch.  Yay!

It's too bad you ran out of the shrimp for my pasta, but I'm so glad I tried the tomato cream pasta instead.  It's my new fav.

I only heard great accoldates tonight from my group about the food & service - thank you - we had a great event.

This pot pie hits the spot.

These short ribs remind me of my grandma's.

Cinnamon on the apple crisp is the perfect touch.

Great meal all the way around.

I wish I had this restaurant in my town.
