Chris was very accommodating and patient with all of my questions! Chris very kindly arranged for one of the sopranos to sing the aria that... More

Not knowing what to expect it came as a surprise that the waiters and waitresses were the entertainment. They served the meals and drinks and in between sang fantastically , pieces from operas. What wonderful singers the two men and two ladies were accompanied by an accomplished pianist. The menu was varied and very acceptable, resulting in a spectacular evening.

I arrived very early, and although the table was not booked for such an early time, I was received with a greeting and was shown to the table. I enjoyed the singing with a glass of rye until the other party members arrived. The food itself is... More

Excellent experience. Was unsure when we entered. Food was good, singing between courses was exceptional. Honestly one of the best nights I can remember. I had the goats cheese then trout, you won't go for the food as it is ok, but that coupled with the singing makes for one of the best nights out we have had! Top night.... More
