Anniversary Dinner

A delicious dinner with very formal service. The salad prepared at the table was good for me, but too much vinegar for my husband's taste. Our waiter did not seem to give us the service that other tables were receiving & didn't tell us about the souffle that needs to be ordered in advance,

The place looks unassuming from the outside but getting inside is like you're in one of those Godfather movies. Frank, who I believe is my sister's regular server, greated us and started making this trip an enjoyable one. We started with one of the best Caesar salads I have tasted and followed by an order of steaks, salmon & pasta... More

Very good food. Atmosphere is a bit dark. Can be romantic. Great soufflé. Tends to attract a mature crowd.

This was my second time eating lunch here. As before, the food and service were excellent. Other reviews commented about how expensive the food is. I think for the quality of the food, and excellent service, it's not expensive at all. We even had the crepe suzettes for dessert, prepared tableside. Since my cousin and I were both celebrating our... More

Love the old school menu of classic flambe dishes and table side service. Watch and learn how a classic Caesar salad is made, enjoy a flaming pepper steak and flambe bananas foster or Strawberry flambe. They also have live music and an excellent wine list.
