Both husband and I had a fish entree. Both dishes were absolutely fresh and delicious! Celebrated my husband's birthday! At no extra charge, they treated him to a fancy dessert complete with a candle! Very nice touch.

He cursed at us telling us to get the f_ _k out of his Resturant. My wife is a petite woman of retirement age. She was afraid and embarrassed. Even though my... More

Come regularly here on business, so I know this restaurant quite well. It seems that they might have changed chef. The mushroom Madeira sauce turns out to be just balsamic reduction sauce and mushroom slices on the side, not cooked together. Too much mash potato.

If you want fine dining - you're at the right place. I used to "treat" myself every now and again. The fine dishes, the fine wines and the fine silver service. It was good to see the younger members of staff performing excellently and dealing with classy customers with class themselves.
