We were there a couple of years ago. I ordered lobster ravioli. The sauce had something wrong added to it...but I could not pinpoint the flavor. My husband had blackened tuna and it was very dry.

We were here on a family outing, but it would make a great romantic date spot! The atmosphere is cozy and elegant, the service impeccable and the food was delicious. We have recommended it to others and will continue to do so!
