We made a reservation for our anniversary but arrived very late. They had an amazing table next to a fireplace and a beautiful Christmas tree! Food was fantastic and service was outstanding! They kept the restaurant open late for us and gave us dessert to take with us. This is a hidden gem! Don't miss it!
