Last night was brought here by friends to celebrate my birthday. We had Donna and Christopher as our waite staff. Couldn't have asked for better service. The food was excellent, from the bread and salads to the steaks, shrimp and sides. Never a let down. Great atmosphere and great coffees and desserts.

Had dinner here tonight for my birthday. We have been here numerous times and have never had a bad meal. The only time the service was slow was when we went a couple of weeks after they opened after the last fire. It is now back to their high standards. Not sure where others who have written bad reviews have... More
