Ate there on July 29, 2014. Had fantastic steak, it was very good. Mixed vegetables and a side salad. The next day I started feeling weak and on the 31st I was in the ER. Bad bacterial infection in my colon. August 7, 2014, still in hospital. They probably need to wash their lettuce better. But believe it or not,... More

Excellent service, excellent entrée’s, excellent deserts. Nice quaint and romantic or fun atmosphere. The Sea Bass was perfect, my wife enjoyed the Tilapia, and a Co-Worker of mine had the Veal parmesan and said it was outstanding. My only regret is that I haven’t found this place before. Thanks prior Trip Advisor reviews, you guys were accurate. I definitely recommend... More

Our party of 5 arrived arrives in two groups and we were both greeted by two servers who brought us drinks and water and told us about the... More
