The restaurant is large and the atmosphere is wonderful. I started with the stuffed mushrooms, which looked delicious. I was disappointed that the stuffing was a a little dry and didn't have much seasoning. My wife had the filet mignon and said it was very tender and cooked perfectly. I had the broiled seafood platter which included a sea bass... More

We have had dinner there previously, but on this occasion we were invited with some friends to celebrate a birthday. There is a private banquet room adjacent to... More

Great surf and turf and the marinara with the fried mozzarella was to die for. We had a little bit of a wait to get a table and when they call you over the loud speaker it does take away from the experience. Seems more like a cafeteria with them calling out parties. Also, they don't have take out silverware?... More

Just went here tonight! I bought a LivingSocial deal for this place- $25 for $50 worth of food. Had never been here before, and my boyfriend and I used it for our one year anniversary. How special!! It may not look like much from the outside but inside it is gorgeous. Now what I know people were talking about when... More

This restaurant has to be seen to be believed. Good food and service. A little pricey. Romantic setting. Now has 50's and 60's group coming in this September. They have lobster and prime rib. Yum, my favorite!
