    We had my birthday dinner here last night. From start to finish an excellent experience. There was a large party of 20 sharing the room with us and despite the kitchen most likely being slammed our food came out in a timely fashion. The plating was beautiful and the taste out of this world. I had the pan seared scallops they melted in my mouth. Incredible combination of flavors. Our 1 year old was with us and the staff was so friendly with Cedar. More than one server stopping by our table during our experience to say hello. Many thanks to Erica, Martin and Jason for making it such a lovely evening. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a great fine dining experience.

    The food was great but the service was much slower than is reasonable (even when busy). Aside from the food service being slow, appetizer and dinner plates were not cleared for a half hour and we were not checked on during this time. Overall our visit was just ok.

    My wife and i enjoyed a dinner at BVR this week. Service was great as we were there early at 5:30 PM. The service did falter by the end of our meal as the serving staff were too busy. Our dessert took a long time to come as did the bill Those service issues aside, the food was quite good. The elk tartare appetizer was a great start to the meal. BVR specializes in "game" meats and my wife had the rabbit w/foie gras was cooked to perfection. I had the pork which was also quite good. Portions were ample and food was hot. Overall, the food was great but took a star off due to the faltering service. Would go again.

    Never had a bad meal here. Staff is knowledgeable and proactive. Excellent place to impress the wife or out of town visitors. The exotic meat cuts are delicious. Wish I could dine here more often.
