Wonderful service and pleasantly surprised by the wine. I had not been there in 20+ years and I hope that I can make it back soon.

Overall, we would describe the food as average but the service and hospitality above average. Our food was bland. Our server had a great disposition. We noticed the restaurant could use a deep cleaning when we looked around.

We took some friends here for a birthday lunch. We have eaten here several times. The food is very good. We had a vegetarian entree and the duck. The duck was cooked to perfection. For dessert we wanted the flambe. Two orders, different fruit, split into 4 servings. No problem for them. However, our server said they were out of... More

Visiting from out of state and ordered $90 dinner for 2. Included wine was very good. Salad appetizer was okay, but unimpressed with bland dressing. My wife ordered shrimp scampi. She said shrimp was good, but dish had lumps of fish with skin mixed in, which wasn't included on the menu. I ordered fish of the day, which the waitress... More
