Many years ago I had eaten at this establishment. So I was delighted that we were able to go back and enjoy several great meals. The owner is present and very focused on running a tight ship with outstanding service complemented with good food. Our server Penny took great care of us to round out a great experience.

The serving staff is old school and very traditional. The food was excellent, I had the Venice medallions with lobster tail with Greek rice soup to start. We were a party... More

The decor is something to look at and all the old school articles make it a delight and bring back memories when I went to school lol. My husband and I actually had... More

We had dinner there a few months back and loved the uniqueness of it. The is a wonderful piano bar, with seats around it and also a dance floor. After dinner, we danced to the live piano music. It was great!!

Yep the Queen actually visited this restaurant for a meal, but we just stopped by for Sunday Brunch to have a family celebration for my soulmates birthday. Here's the scoop. The atmosphere rates at the top, the staff is the best (Gus's gang has it altogether as far as service and personalities). Now for the food. You won't get the... More

The decor is wonderful with old school items, including several pictures of the Queen of England who dined there. We arrived at noon and was surprised that there... More
