Great new addition to the neighborhood. Food isn't mind blowing, but it is solid, with healthy options for a week night meal with friends. Service was great, and they are super accommodating with substitutions. Prices are a little high, but nothing super unusual for the neighborhood. Buffalo cauliflower bites were a highlight!

Outstanding!! Steve, the owner and his staff aim to please. We have had brunch, lunch and dinner a few times and the selections and quality never disappoint! In addition, Steve hosted a cocktail party for us in our home which was equally incredible. Hi staff delivered wine, glasses, serve-ware and a wonderful selection of appetizers.

The food we had at Gray Hawk was absolutely amazing. I had the Shrimp Scampi which was just perfect on a hot summer night, some cream but mostly a very nice and light dish.

The food was very good but there were a couple of issues. The biggest one was that the medium-rare steak I ordered came out medium if not medium-well.
