We came here for dinner and I have to be honest, the food was good, but way overpriced. I had the "octopus", if you can even call it "octopus", it was more an octopus arm on a piece of lettuce and some olives and my partner had a steak with potatoes, nothing special, very average food, definitely not worth the...

Such a great time here. Food is exquisite. Drinks were unbelievable and such wonderful ambiance in there. Worth the money and I am not a huge fan of "fine dining" but this was an experience that I will surely remember.

Great way to end the night! All of our 7 different plates we ordered was absolutely delicious (4 people who like to eat), we had to order more.

We were REALLY disappointed with this restaurant because it had such good reviews... The first problem was when we called the restaurant to see if we needed reservations because we had booked a carriage tour prior to dinner. We were told that YES we did, so we made the reservation. Now it was a Thursday night and not a weekend... More

We had our wedding dinner reception at the Tasting Room last weekend and it was wonderful. We rented the Red Room and the courtyard for about 25 people. The staff, grounds and food were all excellent, as well as the surprise magician who entertained us! I loved the cozy courtyard and warm atmosphere. Great experience!
