We went for the prix fixe with wine pairings. Very generous portions and pours. Very nice fresh salad, delicious soup, tender beef entree, creamy cheesecake, and wonderful wines. Loved it!

The dinners were excellent in all ways. Beautiful decor. Great service. Ling Cod and vegetarian lasagna were great. All food is of exceptionally high quality -- the presentations... More
