Food was excellent as was the service. I had the lobster pasta, she had the steak (ribeye I think) and we had brie as the app. All were good and reasonably priced $900 mxd for everything. Drinks were cold and tasty. The view/atmosphere from the deck candlelight, open air, perfect place. It was quiet, not very busy and the sunset/sky... More
